Trends, Your Style

Saturday’s in the Park!

It is that time of the year again for picnics in the park. What I love about New York City is that there are several amazing places to meet friends for a day of hanging out, playing games, and eating good food. Besides that, summer concerts and events are in full swing. Every Thursday in Central Park, they have a fantastic concert, and people gather to listen to music and just hang out with friends.

Swim suit and jeans

One trend that hasn’t gone away is paring a simple one-piece swimsuit or bodysuit with a pair of jeans. This look is great for a day in the park, as you definitely can throw a little jacket over it if the weather gets a bit chilly, or you certainly can get a great tan as well! I love the detail in both the denim from Zara and the bathing suit from Billabong. Not only that, both pieces are under $100.00 so they are an easy and affordable trendy look.

High waisted jeans and open back

It is all about the back and the behind this summer. Denim has risen, and the high-waisted jeans are fantastic for showing your backside. Not only that, a simple bodysuit or swim like the one above is not only sexy, but it really doesn’t show too much off when paired with denim like this. I suggest making sure that you have the right bra to go with this, which can easily be found at Nordstrom.

Bolo style necklace

I am changing up my normal choker this season for a fun bolo style necklace. This one from Chan Luu is pretty dang cool. It definitely stands on its own and was the perfect added piece to this hipster looking outfit. I paired it with a simple t-shirt and maxi skirt the other day and it couldn’t have looked cooler. When it comes to accessories this season, try something new that you have yet to discover.

Embellished jeans

Embellished jeans, especially in a distressed look, are still going strong and can be found at almost every store. This pair from Zara are perfect for me. They are high- waisted with a little bit of a boyfriend cut to them. The floral embroidery is not too overwhelming but done in a way that they look expensive. This is obviously fantastic because they are under $100!

Espadrilles

Dirty Laundry from Chinese Laundry always has cheap and fun shoes. These natural espadrilles are perfect for a summer day. They can slip on easily, be taken off in the grass, and are super comfortable. Not only that you can wear them on their own to the beach in a bathing suit or pair them with a cute summer dress for brunch!

My Style, Trends

Rocker Vibes thanks to Made Worn

One thing that I love to do is mix up a look with all kinds of different prints and patterns. This past year, I have been digging the new Los Angeles based line Made Worn.  Their pieces all have a vintage feel to them, and I have literally purchased several of their rocker tees. When it comes to a rocker vibe, it is easy to mix it up with a lot of cool patterns. I always think step outside of the box, and wear what makes you feel cool as if you were with the band.

Not only am I all about the fun patches on this sweatshirt, that is a big trend right now in fashion, but this cute and simple bag from Topshop is under $40. I live in cross body bags, especially when I am going to a concert or running around town. This one is so fun, and the leopard print can add an edge and go with practically anything. That is the thing about a pattern purse, it can stand alone or be mixed in with a look like this.

I don’t always wear short skirts, but this J.Crew one is fun and the color is perfect for spring. I love to mix a more girly piece like this with a sweatshirt to make it more my style. That is a fun way to make a look edgy and more comfortable. I also am digging any type of fun earring this season, and tassels are a big trend as well. These, from J.Crew, are the perfect color for me. Not only will I wear them with a look like above, but they are perfect for a cocktail dress as well.

I mean how fun are these kicks from Dirty Laundry by Chinese Laundry? If I was going to go for it, I knew I needed something fun like these. They scream summer to me, and I want to wear them with simple white jeans and a tee as well. This line has all kinds of fun and unique pairs, and certainly they will be going to Cali with me.
