One of my favorite combinations living in Cali was pairing a great sweater with some cool jean shorts. The weather always tends to drop in the evening, and so keeping lightweight sweaters out year round is a must. Here in NYC for the next couple of months I will be traveling to places where temps drop in the evening. So this is a look I will keep here on the East Coast as well. I tend to live in my denim shorts all summer, and so picking up a few new sweaters, like this one from Vince is perfect.
Usually in the summer time, I throw on a cool pair of kicks with my jean shorts. These Nike AirForce 1 tan and black mid tops are awesome. They will go with everything in my wardrobe, and they are super comfortable as well. I paired them with my favorite sporty adidas watch and some simple H&M bangles.
It is all about the belt this summer. Whether you go for a western style, like this fun one from Topshop, or a simple black belt, make sure to add it to your list. Just this small accessory added to jean shorts and a sweater can make all the difference! Step out of your comfort zone, and find one that has a cool pattern.
Well if there isn’t something about being in New York City. Every direction that you turn you stumble across new neighborhoods and streets. When I set out to shoot this week, I knew I wanted to find a beautiful cobblestone street filled with walk ups. It only took a few blocks from the neatest coffee shop Kava Café, located in the Meatpacking area, to find what I was looking for. The weather was chilly, so it made for the perfect day to throw on a scarf and hat.
This season I have been all about the pom pom beanie. They are fun and functional, meaning warmth is key here. This cute one I found at J.Crew, and it was easy to pair with my simple scarf from Nordstrom. Since the whole look has a lot of pattern going on, I wanted to keep the scarf pretty minimal.
One of my favorite brands for sweaters is Vince. They are a little more expensive, but I usually wait until I can find the line on sale. The blue and white stripes are a pattern that will never go out of style, and once we get to the early days of Spring I will pair some simple khaki shorts with it.
Little known secret, L.L.Bean makes one of the best tote bags I have ever purchased. Their boat and tote pieces come in a variety of sizes and colors. They last for years, and let me tell you mine has seen planes, trains, and automobiles many times over. This hunter camouflage version is my favorite. Oh, and by the way, they are all under $100 and they monogram them as well!
These sneakers! Thank you Adidas for making my month! Not only do I love to mix patterns, but the pop of blue and the floral details have me singing out for Spring to come. There is an inside wedge to give you just a little pep in your step. One of the things I love about this look, is that it feels fun. The Camo mixed with florals and stripes all works. One of my favorite style tips is try for something unexpected to change things up. For me, a super cool kick is the way to go!
