re/occurring










I was hanging out in the city for the past few days either by myself or with friends, and have had a great time just being in NYC. I am biased because I live on the West side, but here is a short list of my must do's in NYC during the summertime:

1. Boozy Brunch (preferably with a great group of friends)
2. Central park or Prospect Park
3. Rooftop anything
4. Bike around the city (if you're not afraid)
5. Check out something new or do something you haven't done before
6. Boat Basin

Now, for the outfits. I have been wearing this top, shoes, and purse like they are going out of style. I love the simplicity of the top. I also cannot put this bag down because it is on the small size, but fits any essentials I need for a fun night out. The SM sneaks are getting good use too, they really make any outfit a bit more special. 

Outfit #1:
Top: Stussy for General Pants (Australia). Skirt: F21. Plaid shirt: UO. Shoes: Nike Sky Hi Dunks- City Pack Tokyo Edition. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Craig bag. Necklace: Pull & Bear. 
Sunnies: Karen Walker 

Outfit #2:
Top: Zara. Skirt: 1.State (available @ Nordstrom). Shoes: Steve Madden. Bag: Zara. Sunnies: Ray Ban.

Photos of breakfast @ Clinton Street Baking Company- my suggestion is to have a milkshake (YUM) and the blueberry pancakes!

Details



Black and white: one of my favorite color combos. The outfit is simple, yet has several small details to set it aside from another black and white outfit.
The paneling on the skort, the sheer sections of the top and the sporty style of the sandals helped me pull off a causal yet coordinated look.

 I scored these great sandals and the skort on sale from Zara (my favorite time of the year). I also sported one of my favorite Zara Australia purchases, the "Stressed, But Well Dressed Clutch". 
I threw on some reflective sunglasses and called it a day.

Lite & Bright

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. This is one of my brighter outfits from this past week where I was not afraid of mixing orange and red. This color works very well with my tanned skin, so I decided to pair it with boyfriend jeans, nude sandals, and fun accessories. There was much to celebrate this weekend including great weather, good friends, and fun! I posted the last picture from my picnic celebration as I have accepted a new position for work! Very excited about moving on in my career.
Check me out on IG for more of my day to day fun!
