Currently coveting the Catherine Malandrino jumpsuit which is a great transitional piece to have from summer to fall. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

UPPER EAST SIDE

Also, check out her blog here.

First let me just say that when Louisa took these pictures of me it was extremely humid and hot. I honestly have no idea how I survived taking these pictures, which explains why my hair looks flat but at least my outfit still looks in tact! When it comes to really humid weather here in NYC, I need to wear something light that will allow my body to breathe instead of leaving sweat stains. Come on New Yorkers, you know you understand where I am coming from. A skirt and top is the way to go for me! This soft chambray tank from Bella Dahl is incredibly light and can easily be paired with almost anything. I decided to pair it with this fun high waisted red skirt from Torn by Ronny Kobo and added a more "tribal" look with a handmade stone necklace from Elena Fomina. I recently just bought these nude lace up heels from Schutz and have to say that I am in love with them. Each shoe is crafted with top quality materials and the design is always something unique and different, which makes Schutz one of my favorite footwear brands!

PS. I explored the Upper East Side with Louisa while shooting these pictures. I can't even begin to tell you the last time I was up in that area but it was so serene that I knew I had to take a couple shots for my blog!

RED CAGED HEELS

Remember these white crochet shorts from last week when I wore it to the beach? I wanted to style them again to show you a fun going out look with heels of course! I love an all white look for the summer with a pop of color. This mint green moto jacket from Donna Mizani is lightweight and the perfect summer jacket for those cooler nights. I found the best pair of heels from Aldo a couple weeks back and fell in love with the bright red color. The best part is that these caged heels were on SALE! Did I mention it was 50% off the sale price? How amazing of a deal is that? The sale is still going on in so I highly recommend checking it out at the closest Aldo nearby or you can shop the sale online! These shoes are killer and will make any simple outfit stand out. I didn't even want to add any jewelry to this outfit because the shoe just speaks for itself and will grab anyone's attention. 

Back to the grind again. Sometimes I feel like its so hard to jump back into work mode especially when you had a fun weekend with close friends. I was so happy to be reunited with my closest friends from college over the weekend. It felt so good to catch up and to laugh about all the college memories we shared together. Do you remember all the fun times you had in college? Take me back!!

Starting out Friday and your weekend with something fun & neon. Recently I posted about my love for one-piece swimsuits and this neon number is another I adore. I love the cutouts on the side and the bright neon pink color. The necklace adds another touch of brightness to this swimsuit with the mix of pink and orange. If you're looking for something different, this one-piece swimwear is a guaranteed knockout and will definitely make you stand out!

GYPSET STYLE









THE BEACH PEOPLE aztec towel | ACACIA swimwear | AARAA rings and bracelets

I really wanted to channel in my inner gypset style with this post. I really love the bohemian and effortless gypsy lifestyle. It's like a carefree style that allows you to show off who you are and the attitude of the "I don't give a f**** what I'm wearing" persona. If you're the kind of person who is not a fan of the one-piece swimwear, maybe this post will change your mind. I know what your thinking, you're thinking of those one piece suits that women wore way back in the day. Trust me, I was not a huge fan of the one-piece idea until a couple years ago. Now these sexy things have truly transformed themselves into something so fashionable that I truly believe these kinds of pieces can look flattering on anyone. This swimsuit is just like the bikini top that I previously posted on Monday except in a one-piece style. I'm obsessed with it and with this brand in general. If you're looking for a great beach towel, consider getting this round aztec beach towel from the Australian brand The Beach People. This towel is great to bring to the beach to share with your friends so you can all bask in the sun and get that summer tan on!
