four ways to wear: festival fashion.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photo; what to wear at a musical festival; Amanda Sanchez of Little Miss Fearless, Lynzy Coughlin of Sparkling Footsteps; Caitlin Lindquist of A Little Dash of DarlingIt’s round three of my style collaboration with Lynzy of Sparkling Footsteps, Amanda of Little Miss Fearless and Caitlin of A Little Dash of Darling.  This week, we’re showing you four ways to rock festival fashion and coincidentally, we all agreed that maxi dresses are the obviously the way to go!

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photo; what to wear at a musical festival; Forever 21 purple maxi dress; BaubleBar bronze geometric necklace; Sequin pave branch necklace; Rebecca Minkoff BF brown crossbody bag; Madewell maroon bracelet; C. Wonder snakeskin skinny cuff; J.Crew orange friendship bracelet; NOLA boutique red bracelet; Target glitter sandalsWhen brainstorming outfits for this challenge, I was tempted to reach for a graphic tank and cutoff denim, but that seemed a little too simple (ask me again when temps hit triple digits).  This maxi dress (last seen here and here) was a little more chic, but just as easy going.  Top it off with a stack of jewelry, a crossbody bag and my new favorite glitter sandals and I’m ready to jam!

See how Lynzy, Amanda and Caitlin interpreted festival fashion over on their blogs!

gray + gold.

Three day weekends are the best … until they’re over.  The downside: Major case of the Mondays.  The upside: It’s actually Tuesday!  And as always, I try and start the week off with a chic little number that works at the office or at a much needed happy hour.

Gray and gold is the color combo du jour, punctuated with my new favorite sequin clutch and a touch of neon.  How are you surviving the post-holiday blues?

tribal vibe.

Wonder leopard skinny cuff; Juicy Couture pave pyramid bracelet; Sam Edelman black and brown wedges; Essie's Butler PleaseToday’s outfit is what I called my “toned down” look.  I started with black and brown basics, because they always makes for an easy foundation, but it just wouldn’t be me without a few pops of color.  A neon cardigan, a bright clutch, and bold nail polish and there you have it — an outfit that’s perfect to usher in the weekend.  Happy Friday everyone!
