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 :)

Summer Romper

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! The weather hasn't been the best the last couple of weeks. All the rain has certainly not helped with the humidity. Despite this, I was able to spend the weekend in the West Village, soaking up some sun, chilling out in some of my favorite restaurants, gelati stores and shopping in cute little boutique stores on one of my favorite streets in New York, Bleecker street. Every summer, the beloved romper makes a great appearance and this summer is no different. Thanks to my friend Jasmine in this post, this little number is perfect for that lazy summer weekend ;)

Cropped Neon Stripes

Hi everyone, hope you had an awesome 4th of July and are having a great week! It's gotten really hot, really quickly here in the last week or so. There is no doubt that summer is here! Commuting to and from work everyday has become a battle with the humidity and once you get to the office, the a/c is turned on so high that I always need to wear another layer indoors. Dressing for multiple climate conditions can prove to be a constant challenge, so I moved a modest collection of my sweaters, blazers and jackets to the office and built up a small but flexible wardrobe at work :P Luckily, on weekends there's always time to throw on something fun and enjoy the sun!

The Shirt Dress

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! Work's been super busy, so it's definitely exciting to welcome the long weekend. What are your plans for the Independence Day long weekend? Last year I went to see the fireworks, but it was so crowded that I'm sure I saw more of everyone's heads than the fireworks :P This year I might try my luck on a rooftop somewhere. In preparation for NYC summer, I went to work today in this light, summer shirt dress.

Sunny Days & Striped Maxi

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! This past weekend New York gave us gorgeous weather, perfect temperature, plenty of sunshine and a light breeze to top it all off! Sadly, I know these days are numbered, so you really have to take full advantage of them while you can. Pretty soon, we will be in the midst of scorching heat and muggy summer days. I thought a maxi dress would be perfect for this kind of weather and a short cruise along the Hudson river :)

Cherry Red with Layered Skort

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Summer is quickly approaching and sadly, so is the humidity. The weather in NYC has been really muggy during the week, with random bursts of rain and even thunderstorms. Thank goodness the weekends have been quite pleasant so far with plenty of sunshine, minus the stickiness. These shots were actually taken in Shanghai during my recent holiday. It was an accidental, yet delightful discovery of a little slice of serenity hidden in this city that never sleeps :)

Travel Highlights: Shanghai & Beijing

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! I'm back from my two-week Asia trip and I can't wait to share all the things I found and loved. I had such an amazing time with my family and friends, exploring all the places I have and have never been to, climbed one of the seven wonders of the world, got plenty of shopping done, and of course indulged on some of my favorite foods that I grew up with :)
