In my Mother’s continued efforts to make me a hat person, I received this straw topper a couple of weeks ago… She discovered a website that offers sizes, thereby providing accommodation for my unusually small head. It’s not that I don’t like hats, I’m just not convinced they look good on me… However, one of my favorite things about fashion is that you can take risks, try new things, and if they don’t work then you can move on and laugh about it later. Although… Maybe my Mom is always right… I do think this straw hat and floral scarf will become go-to Spring accessories for me. What accessories are you dying to wear all Spring?

Wearing – James Jeans, Tunic blouse via Marshalls (love this one), Jessica Simpson booties (similar), Pins and Needles scarf (old, like this one), Hat (gifted, similar), Michael Kors watch, Gorjana rings (here and here), Bracelets via Gilt, vintage, and Off-Fifth

Earrings: boutique, Rings: Gorjana and Alexander McQueen, Bracelets: Off-Fifth (old), Watch: Michael Kors

This puffer has been in my closet since HS, but until recently it has been gathering dust toward the back. I was inspired by a few bloggers and street-style shots featuring puffer vests (like here and here), so I put this look together for the weekend. What do you think? Is the puffer the new chic topper for the weekend?

Weekend Recap: New Looks

There are a couple of things going on here. First, my hair is darker. Second, I’m killing it in this dress/jeans/sneakers combo… wouldn’t you agree?

This weekend I attended back-to-back holiday parties, so the girls and I went shopping for cocktail dresses. It just so happens that I found mine at a pop-up shop in Union Square. Had to make sure it fit before purchasing, so… No shame. Thank god for friends who insist upon are willing to snap a pic at a time like this. I bought the dress, paired it with a vintage belt, sheer tights, and ankle booties… Left the jeans and sneakers at home. 🙂

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Style Inspiration: Polished Casual

Pants Please

Leather Pants: H&M (like this version), Top: W118 by Walter Baker, Shoes: Miu Miu via Threadflip, Polka Dot Bag: Kate Spade

Necklace: Vintage (similar), Tiger Bangle: gifted Kenneth Jay Lane (similar), Rings: Gorjana (love these too) and vintage

I hate tights. First of all, with a name like ‘tights,’ how comfortable can they be? Second, they inevitably rip so you have to constantly buy new pairs. And don’t even get me started on how tangled I get every time I have to go to the ladies room. What I’m trying to say is, tights are a worst case scenario for me. Therefore, if I go out for drinks during the cooler months, I tend toward pants so that I can avoid any pantyhose debacles.

Believe it or not, faux leather pants can be surprisingly versatile. I pair them with anything silky and/or sheer with a boyfriend blazer and bold jewelry (like this statement necklace) for a night out. Then for day, I would throw a comfy sweater over this outfit and swap my heels for leopard print loafers. What do you think? Do you wear your leather pants to death or are they still hanging in your closet with the tags on?
