Greenery & Light

I recently ran up on these jeans at the And Other Stories store in SoHo, and have worn them just about every other day since. The bright blue makes them so unique and the frayed cuff gives off a really vintage vibe. Plus, they are undeniably comfortable. What a score. I paired them with a neutral beige tunic and a relaxed orange blazer. I also found my dream clogs a few weekends back at the Brooklyn Flea, which I felt coordinated perfectly with the blazer. The rich, orange leather is just so stunning. I added a few touches of extra detail with a red neck scarf, an oversized snake print clutch, and my newly acquired favorite shades.

I know, I know... It's been very close to forever since I've posted, but, in my defense, interning this summer, though it's been in every way incredible, has kept me absolutely slammed. 

Anyway, onward! This is an outfit I shot one day after a full day's work at ELLE. One thing New York and this summer's busy schedule has taught me about myself is despite not being the biggest flats enthusiast in the past, I very much am one now. Like, seriously. I paired the flat boots with some plaid culottes, a white button up, an oversized bow tie (because why not), a trench style vest, and a duster jacket. Also, isn't the Empire State building just breathtaking? Never gets old...

Gingham

This look, which I wore for the final day of Teen Vogue Fashion U, is one of my favorites from my most recent trip to NYC. Obviously, it was a bit chillier then, which made it perfect for busting out some layers. This dress has quickly become a wardrobe go-to. It's incredibly transitional from day to night, spring to summer, summer to fall - you get the gist. Plus, the beauty of gingham is that it's quite bold (a win in my book), while still keeping to its timeless roots. Basically, I like it a lot. I paired the dress with a bubble gum pink faux fur jacket to add a splash of color to an otherwise black and white color combo.

A Week From Today

I have such exciting news to share! A week from today, May 18, I will begin working as a summer accessories intern at ELLE Magazine in New York City. Having the opportunity to truly work in this industry, specifically in the magazine realm, has been a constant goal of mine since the seventh grade. I feel so incredibly blessed to not only spend the summer in a city that has over the years come to occupy such a large portion of my heart, but to also see dreams I have had for years materialize. So, with that being said, let summer 2015 begin!

Dusk in the City

For the full day of seminars at Teen Vogue Fashion U last month in New York City, I paired some loose leather pants with a beige blouse and a cropped pastel pink leather shirt. I kept the colors to a minimum, with mostly pastels, blacks, and just a small pop of color with the scarf, and let the textures take the stage. To finish the look off, I threw on my go-to patent leather boots and topped it off with my fluffy beige coat.
