Ball Drop Earrings and Off-The-Shoulder Jumpsuit

I never thought I would start a blog post with “Ball Drop”, but here it is! Last night I caved in for the latest statement earring trend that I initially was not on board with but now am…the ball drop earrings! Also known as “orb” and “globe” earrings (trend alert). I bought this sunny yellow pair from a NYC street vendor but I have linked a few similar versions below. I know that J. Crew, Club Monaco, Intermix, and BaubleBar all carry them. They were the perfect summer touch to this amazing Theory jumpsuit (trend alert) I have been waiting to wear. I first saw this jumpsuit last February at Bloomingdales, and was immediately attracted to the off-the-shoulder / strapless (trend alert) top, and culotte / wide leg bottom (trend alert). Also, jumpsuits have been on the steady incline for the past few years and I am happy to support this movement. I finished off the look with my favorite nude strappy sandals. I have gotten so much wear out of these, and they go with everything!

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?
