Simple

IMG_9723

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.

Keeping it neutral

Texture is always something that pulls me in.  The ideal of a cozy knit with a high chunk factor is irresistible, especially with frigid New York temperatures. The woven detail on this piece is fantastic.  I have paired it with almost everything in my closet, making a simple sweater my key piece that elevates any outfit.

This past weekend kicked off my Birthday week (I always keep the party going for at least a week in Jan).  I was overwhelmed by all the birthday wishes and sweet gifts from my friends and family.  They really know how to make a girl feel special!

Sunday Stripes

Sunday stripe full 2

Ever since our trip to Paris, I’ve been obsessed with stripes. Admittedly, I already had a fairly large section dedicated to them in my closet, but I can’t help adding new pieces, as they are a perfect neutral without being boring.  There’s something so classic yet so versatile about stripes.  They can take on an entirely new life paired with leather and ripped jeans vs. a girly skirt and sweet flats. Sunday felt like a stripe kinda day.

Layered

So I was totally hoping to pair my white denim with a tank and some amazing wedges (and a beach side cocktail), but quickly dropped back into reality when the snow started coming down again on Sunday.  I love a pair of white jeans and already own a few pairs that I looked long and hard for.  This season, I was missing a basic pair with minimal distressing.  I had a few finalist in the mix and ultimately all would have worked, but I decided the simplicity and fit of the FRAME’s were spot on.
