nike x liberty of london.

nike + liberty + wedge high-tops?!? hello?!? amazing. when we went to london last year, i decided liberty was one of my favorite stores ever so i was excited about their collaboration with nike. i saw these nike x liberty dunk sky high wedge sneakers (yeah, they have a wedge) on one of my current favorite style blogs, sincerely, jules (she's so adorable and effortlessly stylish!) recently and knew i had to have them. i spotted them (ok, let's be honest. my bf, the ultimate sneaker hoarder ... i mean, collector, saw them from afar and ran into the store) at this super cool store, rime, on smith street in my hood (during sunday funday). so awesome. can't wait to wear them!

tgif! heading to the movies tonight, moonrise kindgom (super excited) ... my sister, lauren, is coming to visit tomorrow, woo! on our agenda - the Guggenheim to see a cool photo exhibit, some shopping, manicures, making dinner with goodies from the farmer's market, brunch and showing off my hood since it's her first visit since i moved to brooklyn. have a fun weekend!

black + white stripes.

top: american apparel. skirt: attention. shoes: steve madden. bag: j.crew. sunglasses: ray-ban

i love the simplicity (and comfort) of a white v-neck t-shirt but how it can complete a look. this t-shirt is great because it's organic and it has a bit of slouch but still fits well.

happy hump day!

sunday funday on smith street.

top: truly madly deeply. shorts: abercrombie. hat: new era. bag: marc by marc jacobs. sunglasses: ray-ban. bracelet: miansai.

had a great weekend! had fun with a new client on saturday, re-styling her wardrobe. in the evening, enjoyed the amazing view from my friend, michelle's rooftop (see the sunset here). yesterday was sunday funday at the street fair on smith street in our hood ... lemonade, red hook lobster roll, cool vendors (bought a few new things, stay tuned!) ... and then watched some soccer at a neighborhood bar ... ended the weekend with a bit of trashy reality TV (hey, sometimes you need a dose of the "real" housewives) ... happy monday!

army green + black.

top: random. shorts: BDG. shoes: tinley road (similar). bag: j.crew (similar). hat: H&M. rings: vintage. 

i really like this combo - army green and black. and i love this hat ... it just completes some outfits.

tgif! i'm staying in tonight which i'm excited for after a couple nights of being out and about. tomorrow i have a wardrobe consult with a new client (always fun!) and evening drinks on my friend's (the amazing michelle of Lonny) awesome rooftop. and i might be buying a bike (a pink beach cruiser!) from a friend so i'll definitely be riding around town a bit ... have a fun weekend!

repeat remix.

 top: gap. vest: j.crew. leggings: fluxus (similar). shoes: kelsi dagger (somewhat similar) bag: zara (different color). watch: casio

you might recognize this outfit since i've worn it before (see post here); however, i changed it up by adding the vest (still obsessed!), wearing flat, black sandals and different accessories for a new look. it's easy to update a repeat outfit by adding a layer and/or changing accessories.

happy (official) first day of summer! definitely feels like it with this 90 degree weather ...

new purchase.

my new purchase from the flea market in point pleasant beach (that we found while riding bikes this past weekend) ... the guy said it's probably 90 years old. it's so pretty and fits the essentials - my phone, lipstick and a credit card. it's perfect for a wedding or just to grab a drink with a friend.

happy tuesday!
