Graphic Jungle

Inspiration is all around us. Several times a week, I take the 7 train to visit my boyfriend after work. I'm usually dead asleep, but the times I'm awake and happen to gaze out the window, I can see blasts of colors on warehouses as the train whizzes along the tracks. On one of our weekly exploration dates, Doug takes me to that colorful warehouse. Graffiti art covers the building's facadetransforming it into a graffiti mecca known as 5 Pointz. Welcome to our graphic jungle: 

Blazer & Pants: Zara
Shirt: MANGO
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Clutch: Ann Taylor
Necklace: Tiffany & Co.

I love to experiment with colors and textures, but I never get sick of the blazer/graphic tee combo. The core colors in this look are grey, black and white, which are accented by a python-printed turquoise clutch. I added my personality to a classic street-style ensemble with spiked heels and leather pants. Also, how amazing was our luck to find the perfect mural for my outfit?

5 Pointz



What do you think about my outfit and photos? Thanks for reading, friends! I hope you enjoyed my post and see you next week :)

  1. Whoa, such a great back-drop for some amazing photo-shoots! I think it's so cute that you and your boyfriends have these "weekend adventures" around town! I'm loving your outfit, I like how you paired a tee shirt with a blazer to dress it down!
