Never ones to pass up a designer diffusion collection, my Mom and I picked out this number from the Derek Lam for Kohl’s line that launched recently. I love the combination of colors in this dress and its versatility – I can wear this dress to the office, out to dinner, or with flats and a scarf on the weekends. This piece is definitely joining the ranks of my go-anywhere Summer dresses…
Wearing – Derek Lam for Kohls dress (lusting over this one), Steve Madden booties c/o, Necklace via Off-Fifth, Kate Spade bag (purchased in last week’s major sale), vintage and Gorjana rings (here and here), similar watch, and Bauble Bar bracelet
Just thought I’d give you a peek at a typical work outfit for me. My office is conservative, so in the winter I have stuck pretty close to a trousers and blouse formula. To keep my personality, I layer on some jewelry, add a fun belt, or swap in some trendy shoes. Sidenote: I love that the weather is starting to warm up in New York, because it means I can wear my many trench coats. To me, nothing is more classic and sophisticated than a great trench coat. I look for pieces with a special detail like the color-blocking in this version. What is your go-to Spring jacket?
Wearing (faux) leather leggings with your coziest sweater is a great alternative to jeans for a laid-back weekend look. I even transitioned this look to evening (a casual dinner party) by swapping the loafers for heels and adding a sheer black tank underneath instead of the white button-down.
Blouse: Michael Kors, Shorts: Zara, Booties: Steve Madden (all old), Necklace: Off Fifth, Watch: Michael Kors, Cocktail Ring: random boutique (similar)
The manfriend and I went on a date this weekend to a cool little seafood restaurant in West Village. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere reminded me a lot of home. We snapped a quick pic of my outfit before we left, which was just simple chic… The accessories are the real focus here; a mixed-metallic statement necklace and green lace up booties. What do you think? Hope you all had a great weekend!
