Hi everyone! This week we encountered a natural disaster known as Hurricane Sandy. For my friends on the east coast, you already know about the flooding, power outages and physical destruction, and I genuinely hope you're all okay. Although the storm was horrible (and even put my career on hold), it gave my family the opportunity to reunite with old friends over a “power outage dinner," and me the time to catch up on my sleep. When there's a negative, you can always find a positive if you dig deep enough! In keeping with the “two sides of a coin" theme, below are two color block ensembles from happier New York moments:
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bag: Marc Jacobs (Available here)
Location: Fort Totten, New York
Most people are surprised when I tell them I don't like the think about what to wear in the morning. I wash up, eat, change, and I'm out the door. That's why I love to buy pieces that are eye-catching on their own—whether for their color, cut, or detailing. Mango's military shift is a perfect fall addition, with it's olive and black color blocking and tapered (but not tight) fit. I chose nude accessories for this occasion but I recently wore it with a taupe sandal (worn here), berry lip and black trench.
Pants: Zara (Available here)
Necklace: Tiffany & Co.
Location: Madison Square Park, New York
“You look like a fashionista jock," said my boyfriend when he first saw my blazer. I suppose it does look reminiscent of a varsity jacket, minus the gold chain details. I paired the blazer with a faux-leather pant to add texture, and a nude stiletto with a burgundy platform to complement the top. Other colors that would work with bordeaux include taupe, olive and cognac.
What do you think about the looks? Special thanks to my boyfriend Doug for the lovely dates and photographs :) Hope you enjoyed my post and see you next week!
