Under the influence

coco full BB

Some of my favorite events are the one’s where I can dress to the nines.  Fancy dresses and sparkly heels definitely make a girl feel special, but sometimes a tee and jeans feels just as glamorous.  I love taking a classic black and white graphic tee (especially one with attitude) and pairing it with an over-sized blazer and bright heels.  It’s an easy twist that elevates the unassuming jeans and tee.

Knit

I’m feeling the knits at the moment and with chilly mornings and ever changing NYC weather, I’ve officially unpacked the first of my Fall goodies stacked in the top of my closet.  Of course, in with some new as well some of my older favorites.

The chunk factor of this open cardigan was what pulled me in.  Many times I find heavy sweaters irresistible but just to bulky and literally weigh me down. Not the case with this find.  Once you have it on, it’s hard to take off.

Leather pencil

One staple piece that lends itself to any season is a leather pencil skirt. The silhouette alone is a classic and I love the luxe feel leather can add to any piece of clothing.  I snapped this beauty up last year on sale no less, when I saw the zipper detailing.  It’s super versatile letting me position the zip in the front, back or as a thigh high slit.

I decided to pair down the leather with a basic tee, and add girlie accessories as a contrast to the edgier elements.

Red & Pink

R&W full B

After coming off a week in Vegas full of pool parties, dinners, work functions and of course a spot…or two… of shopping, I was in desperate need of some relaxation.  Fortunately Labor Day welcomed me with open arms.

Saturday morning was reserved for a slow start with breakfast in bed and a recap session with my husband on how amazing Absinthe was (a must see) and what a giddy little cookie I’d become about breaking out my new bright vermillion Dior!  I have to admit, as an accessories lover, this little gem was a great find and a digression from my usual brand selection.  It’s also my first lambskin piece which I was assured by the sales associate in Dior, was the right choice. (More on this in a later post).  Amongst my dark Fall and Winter layers, I can’t wait for this pop of color to brighten any cold, gloomy day.
