With our Paris trip less than a week away, I was inspired over the weekend to bring out one of my favorite Summer dresses-which happened to be a sale find in Sydney. My Collette sundress is one of my faves and perfect for a sticky NYC day. The detail is everything and can easily be dressed up or down. I chose to add a denim top for a more laid back feel.

My work week is usually hectic, but this past month was off the charts insane. I always look forward to the weekends, like most people do, and capitalize on every minute of my Saturday morning coffees and Sunday strolls and brunch. This weekend had to be zen, and what better way to fully relax than ditching the schedule and getting lost in Central Park.

No I’m not black and blue after the frenzy of Black Friday sales; however it got me thinking about a fashion myth that has always circulated: Wearing black and blue together is one of the ultimate faux pas. I have to disagree on every level. I love the combo, especially with the right accessories. Because the two colors are in similar families, the combination creates a neutral palette with a bit of contrast.

Well, it’s official-Winter is here. I love the first few weeks before the threat of mounds of snow and grey days. There’s a crispness in the air, accompanied by the last of the fiery leaves falling. For those less than sunny days ahead, I always find a little pop of color brightens my mood and my outfit. My go to (really year round) is a fabulous scarf from Theodora & Callum. I love playing with different ways to wear and nothing can come close to the vibrant colors and unique patterns each piece has.

I love a good Fall color wave, but sometimes mixing in neutrals provides a pop against the fiery, golden leaves that are everywhere. Mixing different shades and textures of grey keep a monochromatic outfit interesting. A stroll through Central Park this weekend on our way to brunch, was the perfect way to spend a Fall afternoon in New York.

Neutrals play a key role in any closet. They pair with anything and will always be classic. I wanted a lighter contrast to my tattered dark denim and just couldn’t resist the light and airy goodness of this pastel scarf. Just because it’s chilly outside doesn’t mean I have to give into mounds of dark layers….yet. 🙂
