New details

I have been obsessed recently with adding a pair of tuxedo denim to my collection.  My typical purchases, as per my previous posts are classic, safe and sometimes, let’s be honest, boring.  The conversation in my head goes something like this: “OMG how cute are theses! The stripe is so different. Wait, can I wear these in a year’s time?  Are they to trendy? Do I want to spend $300 on a pair of non-classic denim?”  And round and round we go.

The fact of the matter is, fashion should be fun.  Yes you want the bulk of your wardrobe to be timeless but the pieces with personality that make your heart sing are the reason getting dressed is fun.  Are these overstepping my line of comfort-no, and honestly they are classic, but something feels special when I slip these on vs. my stock standard pair of dark wash (fill in designer here).

After a hard return to reality (being welcomed by a foot of snow after our trip to Anguilla), I took full advantage of the unusually warm weather over the weekend.  There are many parts of the city to love but one of my favorites is the amount of parks.  Central is of course my favorite but I also love an afternoon in Washington Square Park.  There is always an energy and people watching is standard.

On the go

When I first moved to the city, I often wondered, how could I still retain some semblance of style while also being able to maneuver the increased walking and bipolar weather conditions.  I remember for the first 6 months I really thought I could wear heels almost everywhere and actually believed the weather report on the morning news. (Insert wide-eyed emoji here).

Fast forward a couple years and here’s what I’ve learned. Flats can be your friend.  Yes this was tough for me to conceptualize, but after a week of non stop heels and realizing no amount of reflexology would help, I made peace with flats and found styles that made my feet feel just as special as my Manolo heels did. These Gucci mule loafers are one of my favorites with their mix of classic and edgy.  They are comfy as hell and have serious staying power.

I also had to take stock of my handbag collection as well. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good cross body mini bag, but if you’re out and about in the city, something a little larger is required; preferably to fit a pair of heels and umbrella. I opted for the Celine trapeze.  The medium size is perfect and the shoulder strap is great if you prefer that to the crook of your arm.

Simple

After taking some much needed time off and now calling NYC home for 3 years, sometimes all I crave is simplicity.  There was something so relaxing about living out of one carry on suitcase for 7 days. Almost made me want to do a huge closet purge….almost 🙂

Recently, I’ve been building my accessory collection.  Basic denim, clean pumps and a crisp white shirt are instantly elevated with a few key pieces.  A pop of color on the nail, tortoise sunnies and golden details pull everything together.
