Monochromie Homie

October 17, 2011

I’ve been really into monochromatic outfits lately - obviously my all black ensembles don’t count, but just the other day I wore red from head-to-toe and loved looking like a tomato. This look is obviously much more subtle but I love how polished grey looks when paired with similar charcoal hues.

The other great thing about this outfit is that it’s as comfortable as a grey sweatsuit. The trapeze shaped cashmere sweater is as cozy as wearing a blanket and trousers with a little breathing room are a nice change from my everyday skinny jeans. If both pieces came in multiple colors I would definitely own them; I mean how great would this outfit look in emeraldy greens?! Peacock blues?! MUSTARD YELLOWS!? Oy!

The good thing is that this is an easy look to re-create no matter what pieces you have in your closet (sweater and trousers? I know you all have some of those in your wardrobe), so stay tuned for something similar coming real soon…

SIDEWALK ▲ CAFES

October 13, 2011

I don’t know why but something about this outfit makes me think of traveling to Europe with friends and eating/drinking at sidewalk cafes. I think it’s because all of the pieces by American Living are versatile and comfortable (crucial when packing) and yet a pop of raspberry red lips, a bright flower and a classic pair of heels make them slightly more sophisticated.

One of my favorite things about traveling with friends is the process of getting ready for a night out on the town. Everyone’s rummaging in each other’s suitcases, the frequent question is “does this look ok?” and by the end of an hour spent getting ready, everyone is wearing each others clothes and usually far dressier than they need to be.

Although I don’t have any travel plans in the near future, I’m definitely making a mental note of this outfit for the next time I jet off to a fun place with friends.

Birthday Dress

This past weekend was perfect. I celebrated my birthday with my Mom and my closest friends, I ate more pizza than you can possibly imagine, and I found the perfect party dress for my birthday party.

After browsing around Opening Ceremony and Barneys, my Mom and I stumbled into Jill Stuart (whose collection I pretty much cried over last season) and boing! there was this dress. I tried on a few others but something about the colors in this one had me sold. I love the 1920s vibe combined with the gold accents and accordion skirt - you better believe I was fanning it out all night. Since my birthday party was a bit more low key, I dressed my party frock down with some chunky boots and a leather jacket (when it got cold) but boy oh boy I can’t wait to really jazz this dress up!

This past weekend I watched a documentary on the Amazon and have been kind of obsessed ever since. It’s always been a place I wanted to go but I’d never go unless I had some kind of a human bubble to travel around in - insects that crawl under your skin and giant snakes falling from trees? No thank you!

However, I had so much fun creating my dinosaur adventures last week (see here) that I figured I’d spend a grumpy Monday evening playing around with photos of the Amazon while simultaneously incorporating my ferny green Zara pants that have been sitting in my closet staring at me for a few months now. I did shriek and pull my feet up onto my chair a few times while browsing for images (snakes are seriously my biggest fear) but I loved looking at all the colorful toucans and odd insects that look as if Dr. Seuss made them up.

I’m convinced I was a biologist in another life…or an archaeologist…or singer from the 1920s…or someone from a Jane Austen novel…or………..oy.

Isn’t amazing how a week can go by so slowly and then poof! it‘s Friday!? That was this week fo sho. Even though I didn’t have a lot going on in terms of events and meetings, it seemed like any time I tried to grab a second for myself another task came popping up on my to-do list, thus leaving me strapped to my desk chair. At least I got some time in to hang out with dinosaurs though…

The highlight of this week however, was last night’s Anthropologie event which was hands down one of the best events I’ve ever been to (*note this isn’t a sponsored post by any means - I seriously did have a fantastic time!). Not only was their showroom filled with candies that make Willy Wonka’s factory look like a dump, but the upcoming collection was beautifully displayed all around the space and my fellow bloggers and I each got to style and model a look made up of the new pieces! I’m always a little awkward when I have to pose for a picture in front of people I don’t know, but as most situations require in life, I decided to kick that awkwardness in the face and did my best not to pose with a double chin…

As for this weekend, I already have a ton on the agenda. Tonight my friend Ally and I are heading over to The Lot on the Highline (an outdoor spot filled with yummy food trucks and brews) and on Saturday I promised Finn we’d hit up the dog park and then I’m off to dinner with my favorite foodie, Erin!

What are you guys getting into this weekend? Something fun I hope!

Until Monday…

tanti baci!!
