For those that know me well, I practically live in maxi skirts and dresses all year long. Don’t get me wrong, I still wear my favorite heels, but usually I like to give it my own spin with a great pair of sneakers. This blue skirt from Alice and Olivia may be one of the best I have found in years. The color is gorgeous and the pleats are perfection.
I live in vintage rock tees all the time. In the winter, I love to pair them under a jacket, and pairing it with the unexpected makes if more fun. I came across Madeworn this past week. It is a brand started by the creator of Junk Food Clothing, Blaine Halvorson, who has taken vintage and music apparel to a luxury level.
Being in New York City, I have certainly fallen in love. One of my favorite denim lines The Rails had me marching to my own beat in this Knox jacket. I mean how cute is the New York logo on the back?
Even better, you can customize your own, which I just did with my name on the back. Check it out below.
Last but certainly not least, is the the adidas Gazelle. This shoe has been around since I can remember, and my first pair were back in the seventh grade. I had a pair of navy blue ones that I wore into the ground. They recently have had a revival, and right away I went out to get a basic pair of black that go with everything. One style tip, is to never be shy of mixing things up. A maxi skirt is more unique with a cool pair of sneakers and a vintage rock tee!
I have several weddings and cocktail events coming up in the next month. This time of year, I love to find dresses that are a bit different then what I typically wear. As we get closer to the holidays I tend to be more festive.
This dress is from The Stylist LA, a designer dress borrowing service. Founded in 2009, its aim is to bring stylish clothing to women who wish to dress a certain way, but do not want to buy a new outfit for every occasion. For some of my more formal weddings and events coming up, this is my go to for a great fall wedding look.

I have often tried on pieces from Nightcap Clothing, but this was my first adventure in one of their beautiful detailed dresses. The lace is done just right, and I love the color of the navy. It is sexy yet feminine. The wedding was outdoors, so I made it more funky by pairing a Seychelles boot with it.

I love the bright addition of my favorite Alice and Olivia clutch. It is the perfect size handbag for events, and it makes the look pop a bit more. Florals are so on trend for fall, and it adds a playfulness to the look.
One of my favorite things about New York City is that you can wine and dine in any neighborhood. I find a great restaurant on almost every corner, and I never get tired of exploring new places. I found a cute little wine bar down in Tribeca where I am staying for happy hour.
This Alice and Olivia romper is perfect for the hot city nights. It can transition from day with a simple sandal to a great piece for the night paired with a wedge like this from Dolce Vita . Of course, I threw on my favorite choker from Chan Luu.
