At First Sight

Wearing: Zara sweater (last worn here-super similar option here + 25% off),Zara skirt,Manolo Blahnik pumps,Ray-Ban shades

#currentlytrending: An affinity for an at the knee or below.After a little late night shopping at the great z to a-r-a, this black mesh skirt showed up at my doorstep. To my luck, it was  love at first sight, but hey, we all can't win at life... it was a size too big. Don't get used to this skirt thing though, my poor pale legs have already resorted to fleece lined tights and worn in denim. 

As I was going for a high waisted skirt to amp up my woolly knits and bring a little something something into my wardrobe... le sigh, life is full of twist and turns.  In a result, I ended up with a longer hemline and a love at first sight with another one of the Z's best- this sweater.

Talk about a match made in retail heaven.

On another random note, sporting a sartorial color scheme of red and black made me think of vampires. Yes, your waking (or sleepy) eyes read that correctly. Halloween has come and past, and and the holidays are upon us, yet the classic color combination with forever be tied with gothic vampires. 

Bless my soul. 

Despite my vampire color connections and sleep-deprived, movie-watching eyes (that made an appearance here), this outfit is filed under: wear more often.

Maybe late night shopping is a good thing.... (ha!)

I was in the Tory Burch Greenwich boutique a few days ago to shop their Labor Day sale and came across this amazing printed sweater. It has beetles on it! To be honest, it was love at first sight for me. I don't think the sweater is necessarily my style, but mixing it up is always good! Be sure to check out the entire Tory Burch fall collection- it's one of her best! Shop some of my other favorites below. Thank you for stopping by! xxx

Florals + Stripes

As a huge fan to stripes- they are a basic in my wardrobe, I went ahead and paired them with a bolder print; florals. The most important thing about mixing prints is to keep the look cohesive and in the same color palette. For this look, it was blue. I topped my outfit with a white blazer and neutral shoes and bag. To keep it playful, I decided to wear a pink and gold statement necklace to tie the whole outfit together. Let me know, if you like to mix prints?
