NYC Downtown Weekend: Fringe Jeans, Slides, and Crossbody Bag

It’s finally fall in NYC. Cooler temps and lots of rain this weekend! I wore this outfit pretty much all weekend: my favorite hippie ombre fringe jeans (trend alert!), a simple knot-front dove gray sweater, Rebecca Minkoff studded crossbody bag, and embellished slides. I finished the look with my little cat-eye sunglasses (trend alert!) This look was easy and so perfect for bopping around downtown with my gal Nicky!

France Part 1, Provence: One-Shoulder Bow Detailed Striped Cotton Dress

Last Sunday I returned from an incredible nearly 2 week vacation in France! I met one of my best friends, Gwen, in Aix-en-Provence, and we road-tripped through the south. She was the photographer for all of these pics (thanks Gwen!) When I saw this one-shoulder swingy cotton dress, it screamed “Provence” to me! I love the striped pattern and the subtle bow detail on the shoulder. I am very into tea length dresses (trend alert!) this season. I completed the look with my favorite lace up espadrilles (they are 12 years old, from Banana Republic!), a red lip, dainty gold rings, and cat-eye sunglasses.

Aix-en-Provence was so charming, and one of my favorite places we visited. The lavendar fields also had me feeling like I was in The Sound of Music!

Spring Shoot with Tom Naples Photography Part 2

It is spring in New York City. Here is the final batch of photos from my shoot with Tom Naples Photography a few weeks ago. I have also added in some candids. We actually saw another fashion blogger shooting on these courthouse steps. We though it was such a cool spot that we copied her, when she was finished of course! A few weeks ago I saw this top at ZARA and had to have it. I love a black and white chic look, and the off the shoulder (trend alert!) is so flattering and sexy without showing too much skin. I paired it with my favorite flared jeans, some killer strappy heels, a headband to add some youth, and a bright red lip. I haven’t worn flared denim in a while- I tend to stick to a skinnier pant leg these days, but flared denim is incredibly flattering and elongates your legs. The 70s knew a thing or two about fashion! These strappy heels are some of my favorites. They look like Jimmy Choos, but they were actually a $45 steal…

Tom’s gallery can be found here. Isn’t he amazing?
