France Part 4, Nice, Eze, Villefranche-Sur-Mer (and Monaco): Aztec-Printed Jumpsuit

This was one of my absolute favorite days. Gwen and I saw so much beauty, crossed country boarders, and had an amazing evening at the sea. For our Eze and Monaco daytrip, we took the gorgeous high road to the “exotic garden” at the top of the mountain. Nietzsche used to come up here to contemplate! The drive was gorgeous and windy (but terrifying) and the views were totally worth it. From Eze we drove to Monaco for lunch. I will always remember that it was the hottest day ever. We had our favorite– moules-frites in the harbor of Monte Carlo, and then went to explore the “palace”. We finished our adventure day at a beach that was recommended to us in the picturesque seaside village of Villefranche Sur Mer. I loved swimming against the colored houses in the background.

For our long day, I opted for a fun Aztec-printed jumpsuit by Calyspo. I love the preppy pink and green combination, and the geometric is so different from anything else that I own. The cotton was comfy and lightweight. I was happy with the strapless top because…tan lines! I also love the fun silk tassel ties at the waist. I originally was not crazy about the fringe at the bottom hem, but now I think it’s fun! I completed the look with my Panama hat (a necessity!), my Ray Ban aviator sunglasses, a dainty gold necklace, and a Rebecca Minkoff cross-body bag.

Printed Romper

It’s officially romper season! I started warming up to this trend about two summers ago, but now I am a huge fan! I love that rompers can come in all different kinds of fabrics and styles, I think that the one I am wearing below could even be described as “sophisticated”. I love the interesting V-shaped neckline, ruffle detail, and the fun mix-and-match prints (the tiny star-print top matches the stars on the sandals). It was a sunny and beautiful 75 degree day in NYC this weekend, so I paired this romper with my trusty gold aviators and gold star lace-up sandals. It was the perfect, easy outfit for bopping about the Upper East Side with my cousin, Nancy!

In my opinion, a jumpsuit is a romper with pant legs, while a romper has short bottoms.

Black Jumpsuit

This weekend I swapped out all of my summer clothes and shoes in favor of my fall wardrobe. I was sad to say goodbye to my bright sundresses and sandals (summer is my favorite season to dress for!) but booties, capes, and cozy sweaters are making things a little bit easier. One piece that I have been meaning to wear all summer, which is a great transition piece into fall, is a black jumpsuit (romper). Black jumpsuits are a closet staple, as they transition easily between seasons and they can also be dressed up or down and used as a “canvas” for fun accessories.

For this West Village shoot, I wanted my hair and makeup to be as equally edgy as my romper and new yellow Jimmy Choo platform sandals. My close friend Alex did a smokey eye, nude lip, and an edgy braided and coiffed updo. Per usual, please contact me if you would like to book her for your next event. She is the queen.
