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

Last Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous, warm, and sunny day in NYC. I had the pleasure of working with a very talented photographer whom I went to college with, Tom Naples, and his equally talented videographer friend, Courtney Norris. We were also joined by our buddy Dan- who did an excellent job snapping some iPhone pics. I am very proud to have collaborated with such gifted artists. Tom took the below shots. Our plan was to head to the Brooklyn bridge, but it turned out that about a million (maybe that’s an exaggeration, although it is New York!) other people had the same idea. We floated around the court house and had a blast. I styled this Rebecca Minkoff soft pink off-the shoulder (trend alert!) ombre dress with some cat-eye sunglasses I bought from a Soho street vendor, and my favorite sparkly-soled pumps. I also picked up this gold-pearl accent collar (another trend alert!) It’s edgy, and it looks great with any dress or top that is off-the-shoulder or strapless.

I highly encourage you to check out Tom Naples work at www.thomasnaples.com. Instagram handle @tomnaplesphoto. Better yet, book him! He offers all kinds of photography services for different occasions- and he is a gem to work with.

More to come- we shot two looks, and Courtney’s video is coming soon…
