Bella Italia!

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great day! This post is kinda long overdue but I wanted to share my Italy trip during Thanksgiving with you all. Although this is not the first time I've been to Italy, I still loved every part of the trip and discovered many new things. I think Italy is a country that ages beautifully and graciously with time. Whether you are a cultural enthusiast, a world traveler, a devoted catholic, an art appreciator, a fashionista or a food lover, you will be sure to love everything Italy has to offer ;)

Winter Whites

Hi everyone, happy new year! Hope everyone's having a fabulous start to 2015! I must first apologize for being MIA, it has been a while since my last post. I went to Italy during Thanksgiving, came back from vacation, got caught up with work and all the general holiday craziness. Happy to report that I am back to blogging and looking forward to an exciting new 2015! First post of the year, I dedicate this to a fresh, clean start and a beautiful NYC winter :)

Fall Cape

Hi everyone, hope you are having an awesome week! I'm embracing this season's cape trend and decided to pick one up and try it out. This little guy makes me feel very English and also reminds me of Sherlock Holmes. Now, I'm no detective, but it's not a mystery why the cape trend has been so popular ;)

Fall Essential Faux Fur Vest

Hi everyone, happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a scarily good Halloween :P I went to a pumpkin carving party a week ago and braced the cold in this fur vest. It was the first really chilly day of the season, and I guess there is no turning back from this point on. The cold is upon us and it's time to get cozy! I love a  good faux fur vest, it might not be enough in the middle of the NY winter, but for right now...it's just right :)

The Cropped Trench

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week. I would like to start the blog by commemorating Oscar de la Renta, one of my all time favorite designers. I am deeply saddened by his passing. This great fashion icon and inspiration led me to live in this wonderful city of NY I now call home. RIP ODLR.

As the temperature gets noticeably chillier, I imagine there aren't many more bare leg days to go before having to put on stockings and knee high boots to keep warm. While we are still in this relatively mild and breezy weather, I wasted no time in enjoying my short trench jacket. I absolutely adore them and try to wear them as much as I can during transitional seasons.

Soho Straight Lines

Hi everyone, happy Thursday, hope you are having a fabulous week! One more work day to go and it's the weekend! Yay... :) This week was hectic for me preparing for a major event at work, I am definitely ready for a cheeky Friday night cocktail and a relaxing weekend. Last weekend, I went super casual with this cozy sweater and striped pants for some Soho shopping with friends.

Spotting Fall Elements

Hi everyone, happy Tuesday! I apologize for the recent slow down in posting as I've been battling the flu for the last couple of weeks. Now that I feel much better and fall is here, I wanted to share some seasonal elements in today's post. Leopard print is a great starting point, along with some (faux) leather elements ;)

Sunny Side Up

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! We've been having a pretty mild summer until recently. It's gotten so hot, humid and uncomfortable in the city the past week that it feels like summer just started. To survive the humidity, light, breathable layers are a must ;) I've had this cheerful maxi skirt for a while, but never had the chance to take her out for a spin all summer, until now. She was definitely a great choice in this heat and a splash of enthusiastic optimism I needed for the week.

Something Blue...

Hi everyone, hope you are having an awesome week! Since we have been having such a beautiful summer so far with very little humidity, I thought it would be a great time to pull out one of my old favorites; the chambray shirt. This material could not be more perfect to transition into fall. It's light yet very versatile in layering and pairing. On a separate note, I realized that I've neglected a lot of my cute shorts all summer long, so today is definitely a shorts day! Gotta make sure that I can still squeeze in a few more shorts days ;)

Polka Stripes Strikes Again

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Seeing as today is such a beautiful day, I am combining two of my all time favorite patterns: polka dots and stripes. This has always been my foolproof combination to bring a big smile to my face, and today is no exception :-D

Classic Black

Hi everyone, hope you are having an awesome week! I can't believe it's already August and summer is coming to an end. We are really lucky that this summer in NYC has been quite pleasant with many breezy days without too much humidity. We also went through a beautiful spring season this year with cherry blossoms that bloomed for weeks. As we approach fall, I thought it would be appropriate to start thinking about my fall wardrobe. It's not often that I wear black, but when I do, I love keeping the style classic and add in accent pieces :)

Maxi to Midi

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! It's not often NYC summer days are breezy, but today is one of those days. I took full advantage of this weather and walked down the west side highway to catch the cool breeze and a beautiful sunset at dusk. When you live in NYC, I'm sure many would agree with me that space (especially closet space) is prime real estate, and a frequent issue for apartment dwellers. Having a highly efficient closet has always been a priority of mine and today I am wearing this maxi skirt that doubles as a midi dress. I love clothing pieces that are versatile with multiple functionality :)
