Denim + Turtlenecks

I really cannot stand how I open every post talking about the bloody weather. Well duh, yes, of course we dress for the weather. What sane person wouldn't? Oops, forgot about NYFW in September. Cashmere and leather doesn't work well with hot and humid. Anyway, I have yet to break out the golden grail of boots: the 50/50, so I'm sticking with loafers for the time being. Denim skirts are a better seasonal replacement to the denim shorts, though I'm not opposed to the denim shorts with tights combo, and turtlenecks simply rock my socks. 

It's a long weekend for this gal, and I'm truly basking in the glory. Slept for 12 hours yesterday, binged watched Carpool Karaoke, dined at by Chloe, and shopped for shoes at BG. Lizzie McGuire, this is what dreams are made of. 

Also, thank you all for birthday wishes on Thursday!

I spent the latter part of the summer (where did it goooo?) on the lookout for a little black slip dress. After scouring the internet, stores, and the vintage world, I came up empty handed. Then, out of coincidence, this Kendall x Kylie for Pacsun dress ended up in an random span email. A mere thirty-seven dollars later, I bequeathed the best layering piece in the game. Over turtlenecks? Sure! Under sweater dresses? Go for it. Tucked into jeans? Works like a charm.

Meet The Red Mini

Meet the red miniskirt, it's the denim skirt's flirtatious cousin.  A little bit foxy, but also hella classic. The rusty color screams Autumn weekends frolicking away or brunching on a busy sidewalk street... whatever is your preferred cup of tea. The OG denim skirt isn't disappearing for good, but the sassy and superstar cousin is taking center stage for the time being.

Back to Black

Greetings from Miami... I'm finally blogging after one long & stressful day of traveling on Sunday and a day (or two depending on the time of reading) of training on the water. Short story, I'm pretty tired, hence falling into bed at 9.30 pm, followed by passing out in the next 30 mins. 

I know, you truly loved that mini life update. Let's return back up north to New York City for this classic look of all black.

All black is like the roots to my sartorial tree. Majority of my looks revolve around one or two black pieces that can intertwined into all seasons and locations as I'll be showing you in an upcoming post. I highly suggest investing in a 1) a dope pair of black denim, 2) a soft knit, and of course, 3) a LBD (or two, or three). You won't regret it and as they say.... or just me... black always has your back. 

Knit: The Reformation, Denim: Mother Denim, Shoes: Stubbs & Wootton c/o, Belt: Hermes

Another day, another transitional outfit. I hate to sound like every single person in the Northern Hemisphere, but I'm completely and utterly done with Summer.

Thus, I hope this outfit provides somewhat of inspiration on how to dress for fall sans heat stroke.

Fisherman Forever

Wearing: LL Bean sweater, Levi shorts, Superga sneakers

I'm a creature of habit.

Which is something you might be surprised to hear considering part of this blog is revolved around my personal style. 

Season after season, I hit a bump in my sartorial road which results in wearing the same pieces all the damn time. Don't get me wrong, as much as I love fast fashion and Queen Z (ara), staples are the center of my universe. (btw, this is a teaser of a project I'm putting together.... ohhh & ahhh).

Alas, staples rule the world and the ultimate one? A classic fisherman sweater. Shorts now, layers later.
