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'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 :)

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 :)

Two Piece in a Pod

Hi everyone, happy Thursday! As you are reading this, I am probably on my way to the airport. It's been super busy leading up to this Shanghai / Beijing trip, but I can't wait to share my new discoveries and adventures. Please excuse some delays, as access to social media (including this blog) may be very limited while I'm over there. Anyway, the weather over the weekend was super nice (especially Sunday); our first taste of summer and what's to come. It was only right that I wear something equally as cheerful and sunny :)

Blushing Nudes

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! One more week and I'm off to Shanghai & Beijing for two weeks! Yiippeee....bring on the holidays :) Work has been so busy that thinking or planning for this holiday has been put on the back burner. Despite this, I am looking forward to a much needed holiday to unwind and spend some quality time with my family! Every spring I like to welcome the season with fresh colors, soft neutrals and delicious sorbet shades to ease myself into summer. This spring is no different. I absolutely adore the color and cut of this moto jacket, super fresh and modern.

Denim + Criss Cross

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a great day! I don't know about you, but I sure wish it was the weekend already. It's been a loooong week! Despite the rain, this spring has been quite pleasant with many days of glorious sunshine and parks filled with pretty cherry blossoms. I think in a couple of weeks time, they'll all be in full bloom. I had this breezy outfit on for those easy weekend brunches in the village with friends.

Checked Peplum

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a great day! Weather lately has been kinda humid with mixed showers and high winds. Overall, April has been really sporadic and unpredictable, but it is safe to say winter has finally left us. As you can see, I'm enjoying this summer outfit on an extremely warm spring day. This was taken in Brooklyn, during the start of the summer rooftop drinking/hangout session. One of my favorite things in the city during the summer - a great rooftop :) You get a great view of the city and in this particular case, a perfect view of Manhattan.

Cropped Spring Floral

Hi everyone, a quick hello today. Hope you are having a fabulous day! It's not really spring till florals are out to play ;) As you can see, I am fully committed to this print and definitely not a stranger (see here & here). It's always hard for me to say no to a healthy dose of pretty floral when the sun's out and the weather is warm. It brings such happiness and cheer to my day, particularly on a tough day.

Spring Gingham Trench

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! What a beautiful spring day! Looks like we are taking a small break from the April rain for some much needed sunshine. I absolutely adore days like this where the temperature is perfect to throw on a light trench, and who can say no to some gingham? :P I've been a little busy lately with work. Between starting a new job, welcoming a new season and planning the next getaway, life has been a little chaotic. I think a splash of blue might just bring some calm and peace to keep me focused.

Let It Rain...

Hi everyone, hope you are having a fantastic week! They say April showers bring May flowers, I sure hope so, cos there's nothing worse than a whole weekend filled with continuous rain. What do you do when the weather is not going your way? Spend it indoors browsing the Brooklyn museum and more importantly, wear something that will instantly cheer you up. At least, that was my rainy day remedy :)

Easy, Breasy...

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! We had some gorgeous spring weather last weekend. I was so excited about not having to wear a jacket that I decided to go with something super easy and fresh. Although the temperature has been steadily increasing, the wind on the other hand was strong and mighty! Spring: success, hair: fail. Oh well, can't complain, I'll take what I can get :P

Dots // Stripes

Hi everyone, hope you are having a fantastic day! I'm mixing some staple prints with a vibrant blazer today in the hope of  adding some cheer to this slightly overcast day. I've been on the hunt for a classic red blazer for a long time. I'll admit, the search hasn't been short or easy. A great cut and fit aside, finding the right shade of red proved to be challenging but crucial. It's like searching for that perfect shade of red lipstick, a process not to be rushed :P

Spring Leather

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Over the weekend I invited my beautiful friend Ange, also a long time blog supporter, to do an outfit shoot and she graciously accepted the invitation. This shoot location is between TriBeCa and the Financial District, and particularly close to our hearts. We completed many runs together on this route, caught up on the weekly gossip and shared our love for this beautiful city that we now call home. I thought her outfit was perfect for the upcoming spring season. The weather was gorgeous that day and there were so many runners out enjoying a good run in the sun.

Neon Camouflage

Hi everyone, hope you are having an awesome day! I went casual over the weekend with this camo + neon ensemble. I took a little sunny break at a local park and played with some friendly neighborhood dogs. When I got tired of playing with them, I went on the slides like a big kid. It's nice to do something silly every once in a while :P

Tough Love

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week so far! Ok, I realized that I was a little ambitious with the outfit selection today. Don't let the sun fool you, it's freeezing...brrr.....Despite the recent beautiful weather that gave us a small glimpse of spring and what's to come, sadly, it was short lived and here we are, back to the chilly winter. With that said, bracing the cold was definitely a lot easier with a punch of cheerful color and a motorcycle (moto) jacket!

Pop of Red

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! So, apparently I didn't get the memo that it was going to snow last weekend. Caught in a light flurry (which turned angry in a few hours time to heavy snow), I was saved by my ultra warm military style coat and cashmere lined gloves. I guess black & white was the theme for that day. I then added a pop of red to cheer me up on this cold winter's day and the endless snow storms we've been getting. Small size, but huge presence against winter white :)

Leather + Leopard

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Here's me enjoying that occasional warmer day in a bit of leather and leopard action :) Feeling inspired from watching the Winter Olympics, I decided to go with this fearless combo of strength and perseverance. I love a great power pairing, and a leather + leopard marriage is a winning team!

Winter Favorites!

Hi everyone, hope you are having an awesome day! So, it's that time of the year where I share some of my favorite seasonal things. Oh dazzle us with your winter lights and snow covered parks...but why so cold this year?! Thank goodness for all the remedies and saviors below, I am well stocked and prepared for anything you got! :P

Winter Layers

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Battling with the Polar Vortex in NYC, I am bundled in layers and in my trusty faux fur vest. Even in this freezing cold, I got sick of wearing jeans and thought today is going to be a dress day! I can truly say that the best weapon against the cold is layering and Uniqlo's heattech. This stuff really works, and the best part is you don't need to look like a marshmellow when you walk out of the house. I remember jokingly saying to my friend (at the start of winter) that I wanted to try going without heattech this winter, but when the temperature dropped, it didn't take me a second to put on my heattech. You really have to work with the weather and not against it :P
