I can’t believe that I have literally been in NYC for over six months! Well technically I feel like I am traveling all over for work as well, but calling the Big Apple home has been an unreal experience. This weekend is my last here for a few months, as I am headed back to Cali and Portland for some really cool projects involving the NBA. I also will be spending a chunk of time in Las Vegas for NBA Summer League, so stay tuned for some exciting things there as well.
I am totally obsessed with this two piece number from Lulu’s. It is bright and cheery, and totally summer appropriate for a brunch here with friends. I simply added a trendy western style belt and fun fringe bag from Lulu’s as well. They always nail such fun and trendy looks, and their price points are amazing. Of course my summer shoe of choice is a worn in Converse Chuck Taylor. They go with me everywhere and are super comfy and cool.
Check out some of my other favorite pieces from Lulu’s!
One of my favorite things about New York, is all of the amazing neighborhoods. Living in Tribeca feels like this quiet pocket where every street has something new and fun to discover. Some of the best boutiques and restaurants are right here, and just across the way from me is one of the best coffee shops in town, Laughing Man. It is a local spot, and every Saturday I find myself spending time there working and people watching.
For spring one of my favorite trends are boho inspired maxi tops. This piece from Lulus is perfect for layering when the nights tend to get a little bit chilly. I love the embroidery on the back, as it just adds a cool factor to it.
Also, festival season is coming up quick, and mixing prints and edgy rocker tees is one of my favorite looks. Right now, you are seeing all kinds of fun t-shirts with cut outs, graphics, and their own distressed feel. This one from Topshop is not only fun but under $25.00. I paired it with a leopard print skirt from Joie to add a little flair.
I love to wear ankle boots all year long, especially in the spring with skirts and dresses. Again, when it comes to on trend shoes, you are going to see a lot of embroidery, and graphics this year. A big trend is stars, and this pair from Lulus are perfect for my style. They are still simple, yet will make a statement with almost any look.
This whole look has its own mix master feel to it, and when done right, you can put almost any prints together, especially when you are going for a rock star look. Adding this eclectic style bag from Steve Madden just felt right to bring the whole look together. Not only that, you can wear it cross body which is great for walking around concerts and the city!
It is here! The new Like to Know it App has launched through the apple store to make shopping that much easier for you. Being a part of this amazing new technology could not be more fun. Their new motto “it all started with a screenshot” says it all. Just download the app to your phone, and simply snap a screenshot of my look across Instagram, Pinterest, or Snapchat. Then you can shop my entire look right there on the spot. I mean could shopping get any easier then this?
This launch deserves a happy dance, and these pants from Zara are right on the money for it. How fun and unique are these black pants? This season try something different than your normal trouser and go for something more wild and carefree. Ruffles, lace, and frills are all the rage, so make sure to find a pair that suits your style.
Bell sleeve and lace up blouses are still trending big for spring and summer, and this cream piece from Lulus’s felt perfect for these pants. My first thought was to go simple on the top, but I wanted to get outside of my comfort level and mix and match the whole look in an unexpected way. I will for sure by wearing this top with my denim skirt when the weather heats up a bit. Not to mention, pick up a trendy and inexpensive timepiece like this one from Urban Outfitters.
When it comes to accessories, I love to wear a bold earring from time to time. Right now, eclectic and big earrings are trending hard, and these will make a statement. I usually keep to small posts, so it is fun to add another element to the look. Also, it streamlines the entire outfit, and they are also available at Urban Outfitters for under $25.00!
Okay, can we cheer anymore for these pom pom sneakers from Steve Madden? I love that the flatform sneaker is going strong again, and this is a fun way to show your spirit by adding a little flair. Not only are they kind of wild, but they add a hip factor to any outfit you are wearing.
It is that time of year when I have so many parties it is hard to keep track. For me, I am usually running from one party to the next, so I like to find a holiday look that works for both the day and night. This week alone, I have a work party in the day, a fun holiday cookie event in the evening, and the annual holiday walk and fireworks show in Manhattan Beach.
These pants from Lulu’s are perfect for the holidays. Not only do they scream fun with their wide legs and fun slits, the color is spot on for any celebration. Not only will they go great with a chunky sweater, but I will wear them with a black pump and a fun bodysuit for a fancier event.
Can we say that velvet is the trend of the season? I took one look at these Steve Madden boots and new that I had to have them. I have always been a fan of over the knee boots in the winter. The texture of these makes the whole look feel even more festive.
I tend to live in chunky sweaters during the winter. Every year Express has some of my favorites. I love the color of this one, and as the weather transitions it will look gorgeous with a pair of white jeans. Mixing up the light rose with the darker burgundy makes the look pop even more.
It’s finally cold, and definitely the perfect week to cozy up for Thanksgiving. I am a huge fan of long sweaters, especially while traveling. They are perfect for on the plane or on a long car trip, not to mention just cozying up on the couch. I will be headed back east to Milwaukee where it will be cold, so the hood on this Lulu’s piece is perfect for any snow that may come my way.
This fun tee from Mother Denim is one of my favorites. I love the playfulness of it, and it is spot on with some cool distressed denim. I’m loving any jeans that have fray on the bottom like these from 7 For All Mankind. It makes them just a bit different than your average pair.
What I love about this look, is that you can wear it with some on trend velvet booties to make it a little more fun, or keep it more comfortable with some kicks. I am opting for both on this trip, as I will be running around the city, and going out at night.
There is something so cool and hip about these Nike Roshe Flyknit shoes. The boot makes it perfect for winter, and not only are they super comfortable, they are different then any other pair that I own.
