Wonder leopard calf hair skinny belt; Gigi Taylor saddle pebble leather tote; Michael Kors tortoise boyfriend watch; Madewell maroon oxblood vintage inspired bracelet; DV by Dolce Vita Helia gold chevron sandal wedge; zeroUV designer inspired tortoise oversized sunglassesGetting around town is one of the easiest, yet most challenging aspects of living in NYC.  Everything is in “walking distance” — my definition of which has increased from a few blocks to a few miles since I’ve moved here.  To adapt, I try and create versatile outfits — looks that work while running around town for brunch, coffee, and errands.  To me, comfort will always come first, but that doesn’t mean utility and creativity are mutually exclusive.

style formula: spots + dots.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; fall outfit collage; how to wear polka dot and leopard; Old Navy Women's Crew Neck Polka Dot Sweater Dress; BaubleBar Tortoise Oval Link Strand; Super for J.Crew Ciccio black thick rimmed eyeglasses; Loeffler Randall Ryder oxblood and gold satchel; Michael Kors Slim Runway black and gold watch; Sam Edelman Petty leopard booties

Polka dots and leopard are some of the most classic prints around.  On their own, they  liven up any outfit.  Put them together and they create a bold, but surprisingly cohesive look.  It’s currently my favorite combo on rotation, so I’m recreating it for you with pieces that are perfect for fall.

1. Old Navy Crew Neck Sweater Dress
2. BaubleBar Tortoise Oval Link Necklace
3. Super for J.Crew Ciccio Eyeglasses
4. Loeffler Randall Ryder Bag
5. Michael Kors Slim Runway Watch
6. Sam Edelman Petty Booties

fall essentials: tortoise.

By now, you all know my love for leopard.  Well, meet tortoise: leopard’s more subtle, but still equally cool cousin.  It’s nothing new, but the print has been popping up in accessories everywhere this fall and I ain’t mad.  A touch of tortoise and a dash of gold make for an ultra luxe combo.  Check out a few of my favorite pieces!

fall essentials: black & white.

Bright colors will always be my jam, but lately, I’ve been gravitating more towards black and white.  The combo is effortlessly sophisticated.  It’s chic on its own, or the perfect canvas for a pop of color (see yesterday’s outfit for proof).  Check out a few of my favorite black and white pieces and let me know how you style up the color duo.

1. Express Striped Portofino Shirt

3. Banana Republic Carina Pointed-Toe Flat

rediscovered.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit; Forever 21 navy and white tank; J.Crew Double Tassel necklace; Zara white lace pencil skirt; Michael Kors white leather straw clutch; J.Crew pave square link bracelet; CC SKYE Mercy Princess pave cone bracelet; Zara beige white colorblock sandal Whenever I feel like I have nothing to wear (which is just about every morning), I try digging through my closet and dusting off a few oldies.  I love pairing pieces that I haven’t worn in forever like this navy tank (May 2012) and this white lace skirt (December 2012) and suddenly discovering a new outfit to add to the arsenal.  It’s a great way to rediscover your wardrobe and an even better way to start the week.

P.S. Congratulations to Robin W. on winning my giveaway with The Rad Market!  I’ll be reaching out to you soon — can’t wait to see which piece you pick!

post-vacay blues.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photos; Lulu*s Show and Tell electric blue dress; American Eagle denim jacket; Juicy Couture fringe necklace; The Rad Market Mimo turquoise gold bracelet; Michael Kors white leather straw clutch; Kate Spade Veronica leopard sandal wedgeLast week, I went off the grid during my trip back home to the west coast — no posts, no Instagrams, and only a handful of random tweets (to celebrate my first bite of In ‘n Out in almost a year, obvi).  The radio silence made me slightly uneasy, but I was in desperate need for a little unplugging.  Now I’m back in NYC and suffering a major case of post-vacay blues.  The cure?  One chic outfit and one rad giveaway, of course!
