Flamingos

Every once in a while I get a crush on a particular pattern or object: pineapples, zebras… you get the gist. Currently, I am obsessing over all things flamingo. Flamingos are fun, tropical, preppy, and whimsical. They make me feel like summer is around the corner! Below are a few favorites that I found when scouring the world wide web.

Stay tuned for a very exciting, collaborative, surprise next blog post ūüėČ

Business Casual with a Pop of Leopard

The look below is one of my favorite business casual work looks. I wore this outfit when I was a consultant at my former job, and also at my new tech startup job. I paired my favorite versatile cropped cut-offs with a soft tweed blazer and a trendy ivory bow-blouse underneath. I added a little pizazz to the outfit with these fun calf¬†hair leopard pumps. The chunkier heel makes them a little bit more comfortable and easy to walk in. My starburst necklace and butterfly ring were loaned to me from Lunessa Designer Jewelry in Soho. I love a neutral, conservative outfit and then making it “pop” with fun accessories.

Hearts & a Pom Pom

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so it’s only appropriate that this post features one of my favorite silk heart-print button-down blouses that I purchased almost one year (!) ago when C. Wonder announced they were closing. I love to layer this blouse under a fur vest or layered with an open front blazer for work. The heart print is subtle, yet feminine. I styled this look for an Upper West Side shoot with a pair of my favorite booties. I bought these boots in black and gold a few falls¬†ago, and I liked them so much that last year I bought them in this pretty camel color. The gold detailing at the front, and studs at the back, are so edgy and the heel is short enough to be comfortable to walk in (important!). I got this tote bag¬†from my big sister when I started consulting almost three years ago, and it is so functional and I have gotten so much use out of it. I snagged this pom pom charm (trend alert) at a major sale, and I find myself switching it from bag to bag to add a pop of fun. I first saw pom pom charms about a year ago, exactly, when I was in Aruba at a Louis Vuitton store with my friend Evy. We looked inside the glass case and burst out laughing at the seemingly ridiculous giant charm. I had no idea what it’s practical use was, and it was hundreds of dollars. I guess the joke was¬†on me because pom pom charms are everywhere now…and I have fallen victim to this trend.
