Double Denim

One thing's for sure, denim was my fabric of the season for my summer in New York. There's just so many denim options out there these days, with a vast selection of cuts, shapes, and dyes, that you aren't primarily confined to your standard blue jeans anymore (though, trust me, I love those, too). I love taking the tried and true fabric and mixing it up a bit. Since denim has a relaxed and rugged identity, I contrasted it with a long, white kimono-style jacket and a vintage lucite and wicker handbag to add a bit of femininity. To take the variance a little further, I added a touch of menswear with my new Billy Reid (!!!!!) monk strap shoes.

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.

Rooftop

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

(Jacket: Topshop - Similar: here / Dress: Behind the Glass - Similar: here / Boots: Madewell - Similar: here / Bag: Mulberry)

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.
