Got this great one-shoulder dress at Marshall’s a few years ago, and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it. In the Fall, I will top it off with an oversized sweater or my denim jacket and booties. But for now, sexy sandals and a statement necklace are the perfect accents for a night out with my manfriend.

Wearing – Dress via Marshalls, vintage belt, Steve Madden shoes (last seen here), Michael Kors necklace, BaubleBar ring, Alex+Ani and vintage bracelet

Wear Now, Wear Later: white trousers

Wear Now Wear Later: white trousers
You know those easy, breezy trousers you reach for during the hot Summer months? Well you can take them from Summer to Fall with the right styling. For Summer, keep them light with a silky blouse and simple accessories. As Fall approaches, ditch the blouse in favor of a lightweight knit and a statement necklace. Add a red lip and rich cognac sandals to warm it up for the changing season.
Wear Now: Joseph pants, Balmain tank, Prada sandals, Kate Spade bangles, Topshop belt, Essie nail polish
Wear Later: Joseph pants, Helmut Lang sweater, Michael Kors sandals, Lulu Frost necklace, Saint Laurent clutch, Giorgio Armani lipstick

Denim cutoffs are a Summer staple… that is well documented. However, I find myself wearing them the same way over and over again (something akin to outfit #2), so for your sake as much as my own I styled a few options to inspire your denim-wearing, dog days of Summer using these Rag & Bone shorts. Which look is your favorite? Have a great weekend!

When in doubt, I always reach for a pair of straight leg or boyfriend jeans, an easy, oxford blouse, and a great pair of shoes. This foolproof ensemble always looks effortlessly chic, which is what every woman strives for, isn’t it?

I can just hear my dear Mother saying “You need a belt with that” and normally, I would totally agree. However, the asymmetry of this Michael Kors dress creates better angles which allow me to get away with not wearing a belt. Plus, every once and a while, you just feel like throwing on a potato-sack dress with some great accessories and calling it a day…. And this was one of those times. (Sorry, Mom)

Wearing – Michael Kors dress (cool, similar version here), BCBG booties (old), BaubleBar necklace, gifted bangle, Gorjana rings (here and here)

P.S. I’m totally loving this new City of Boston view as a backdrop for my photos – aren’t you?

Forgive my absence from the blogosphere – I’ve been busy figuring out my new job and my new city of Boston, with little time to update my site… But I’m back, and here is a weekend look that took me to Newbury Street for a leisurely walk and smoothies with the manfriend. You really can’t go wrong with a comfy striped top, jeans, and a broken-in pair of loafers. What’s your go-to weekend casual?

While I make the transition from New York to Boston, my wardrobe is making the transition from Winter to Spring. I love to wear my cozy winter knits over a skirt or dress while the weather is still warming up. I added a pretty floral scarf for some color and kept my diva shades on hand for when the sun was shining! How do you transition your look from Winter to Spring?

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?
