sweater: gap. pants: j.crew. shoes: H&M. hat: steven alan. sunglasses: ray-ban.

here we go again, my favorite colors! grey, black and white. and a touch of olive green/brownish in the hat. i love a slouchy sweater with slim pants (to balance out the slouch),  it's simple and comfortable .... who doesn't like that?! and speaking of simple, check out my lack of jewelry .... i'm kind of into minimal jewelry these days (although my idea of minimal is probably excessive to some) ....

have a happy day!

blue velvet.

top: joe fresh (similar). pants: sabine. shoes: vince camuto (similar). hat: H&M (similar). clutch: the limited (similar). sunglasses: ray-ban.

these velvet pants are so fun .... i love the blue color and the slouchy style. you can dress them up or down - love versatility! i paired them with a simple white button-up, gold heels, a silver clutch (i love mixing silver and gold together) and of course, a hat. i'm excited to style them in different ways ....

happy monday!

faux fur friday.

top: gap (similar). coat: asos (old). jeans: the limited (similar). shoes: zara. bag: j.crew (similar). hat: new era. sunglasses: ray-ban.

the faux fur jacket again .... it's just so warm. i've been wanting a pair of suede, pointy toe heels so i finally caved and bought these from zara. love them. i swapped out my favorite outfit topper, the beanie, for my other favorite, my yankee hat. the sweater is actually navy which you can't really tell .... i love navy and black together, i think it's so chic and cool. 

happy friday! my friend, allison, of ladybird is coming to NYC tomorrow for some trade shows and showroom appointments (and we'll fit in some fun stuff like hanging out and drinking wine with some other lady friends from our high school) .... i'll be joining her for some of it this weekend .... i'm excited to scope out stuff for fall .... cheers to the weekend!

soccer sweatshirt.

shirt: j.crew (similar). sweatshirt: vintage (similar). jacket: asos (old). jeans: BDG. shoes: steve madden??? bag: the limited, sample sale. scarf: similar. hat: vintage (similar). sunglasses: ray-ban.

this is my - it's super freezing out, i'm going to a movie and want to be comfortable and warm - look. it's a bit random (kind of like i piled on stuff from the salvation army?) and kind of masculine .... but i was comfortable and warm so mission accomplished. this is one of my favorite sweatshirts from back in the day. it might be one of my sister's, i'm not even sure but i love that it's soft and worn-in. i layered it over a tartan plaid button-up and topped it all off with my faux fur jacket which is actually super warm for these damn cold winter days. 

happy hump day!

grey & black.

top: vintage. hoodie: american apparel. jacket: the limited (similar). jeans: joe fresh (similar). shoes: H&M (in stores). clutch: american apparel. hat: street vendor (similar). sunglasses: ray-ban.

this is one of my favorite tees and you've seen it before (here and here) ... i piled on grey and black with a touch of white (my favorite neutrals!). i went through a phase years ago when i wore a zip-up hoodie all the time (and i mean all the time) ... i liked it but it was also due to lack of budget for shopping so it became my go-to. i don't wear hoodies much now except for around the apartment for warmth but i might try to bring it back a bit. i like this one because it's fitted and it's grey, my favorite. 

it's been a super cold and windy few days in NYC and i'm so over it. ughhhhhh. i'm ready for spring. we decided to nix central park today and might hide in a movie theater instead. 

happy monday!

happy friday!

i love these pants. they're so comfortable. last time i wore them with my tiger sweater, this time i threw on a chambray button-up and my white wedges. as usual, a beanie tops off the outfit. oh, and the sleeping bag coat again ....

my weekend will be filled with a movie or two at home, brunch with a friend in my hood, celebrating a friend's bday, a consult with a client and venturing to central park for a walk on monday since the bf and i have the day off, woo!

cheers to the weekend!

snowy dunks.

sweater: joe fresh (similar). jeans: the limited (similar). shoes: nike via rimejacket: gap (similar). hat: street vendor (similar). bag: acne. sunglasses: ray-ban.

wearing my favorite colors (or non-colors) .... grey, black and white. i added splashes of silver and pink to jazz it up a bit. loving my new dunks! obviously. this is pretty much all i'm wanting to wear lately - skinny jeans, a slouchy top and wedge sneakers. so comfortable. i retired this jacket a while ago because i got sick of feeling like i was wearing a giant, puffy sleeping bag. but, it was pretty handy during and after the snowy storm, nemo when it was freezing and windy.

happy hump day!
