Simple

IMG_9723

After taking some much needed time off and now calling NYC home for 3 years, sometimes all I crave is simplicity.  There was something so relaxing about living out of one carry on suitcase for 7 days. Almost made me want to do a huge closet purge….almost 🙂

Recently, I’ve been building my accessory collection.  Basic denim, clean pumps and a crisp white shirt are instantly elevated with a few key pieces.  A pop of color on the nail, tortoise sunnies and golden details pull everything together.

Keeping it neutral

Texture is always something that pulls me in.  The ideal of a cozy knit with a high chunk factor is irresistible, especially with frigid New York temperatures. The woven detail on this piece is fantastic.  I have paired it with almost everything in my closet, making a simple sweater my key piece that elevates any outfit.

Under the influence

Some of my favorite events are the one’s where I can dress to the nines.  Fancy dresses and sparkly heels definitely make a girl feel special, but sometimes a tee and jeans feels just as glamorous.  I love taking a classic black and white graphic tee (especially one with attitude) and pairing it with an over-sized blazer and bright heels.  It’s an easy twist that elevates the unassuming jeans and tee.
