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 ūüôā

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.

Ciao Stripes

ciao BB

I stumbled upon Frank & Eileen’s fabulous linen tops several years ago when a sunshine yellow one caught my eye in Barneys. It was such a happy piece and the airiness of the linen made me want to book a flight to Cinque terre, Italy immediately. ¬†Years later, and many more additions from F&E, I still love the luxe fabric and fun colors and patterns. ¬†I will definitely be packing this one when we head to Europe later in the year.

Balaboosta

Last weekend was my husband’s first birthday in New York.¬† Celebrating in Sydney has always been amazing, so I was determined to make the weekend one to remember.¬† I thought it fitting that brunch started off the day at Balaboosta in Soho.¬† The name itself quite literally means good wife, so I thought it fitting for our morning nibbles. ūüôā

The rest of the weekend was comprised of cortados at Intelligentsia, walk along the High Line, watch shopping at Shinola(love the story behind this brand) and an afternoon in Central Park.  The birthday boy was in his element and very happy!

All white everything

all white walk

There’s always something so clean and simple about white. ¬†It’s the perfect blank slate, making accessories pop. ¬†With that in mind, I decided with the onset of Fall showing up everywhere, to take full advantage of the Summer days left. A muscle tank paired with distressed denim gave me the edge I was after while keeping a clean look with white from head to ankle. Leopard and a poppy red capped off my lighter look.

Happy Friday Y’all!

After a long and busy week, I’m super excited for the weekend to finally commence. ¬†On tap: ¬†One of my Aussie girlfriends is coming to the Big Apple. ¬†Laduree in Soho followed by a little retail therapy and of course stopping to refuel at Ground Support¬†should make our Saturday fabulous!

All in the details

all in de BBB

I have certain pieces in my wardrobe that I know will always work and are usually my go to when I want something easy.  I have to admit though, I can find myself in a fashion rut sometime,s always gravitating towards my favorite denim and basic top.  My never fail cure:  Accessorise!

While I’m certainly not starved for color when it comes to my accessories, I like to make sure there is always a balance among texture, color and size. Pops of color paired with fierce details on a classic black shoe are the cure all to any basic outfit.
