city meets country.

Wonder tortoise square link necklace; Hello Fab gold glam sequin clutch; Diane von Furstenberg DVF April leopard calf hair pumpsOkay, so I’ll be completely honest here: I don’t really do country and I don’t do rodeos.  Truth is, I once bought a pair of cowboy boots … and then only wore them once.  Needless to say, I’m much more of a city girl that is occasionally inspired by the country spirit.  So maybe my interpretation involves sequin and leopard — would you expect anything less?

carrie moment.

Wonder crystal gold necklace; Sequin pave branch necklace; J.Crew turquoise stretch bracelet; C. Wonder snakeskin skinny cuff; Hello Fab gold glam sequin clutch; ShoeMint Elizabeth lace up nude heelsToday marks the completion of my first year in New York City!  It’s been a year full of challenges and adventures — with a bit of glamour and a whole lot of grit.  Still, I’ve been lucky enough to have experienced a few magical moments in NYC and I couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate my first year here than by having a little Carrie Bradshaw moment of my own.

summer refresh.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photo; Tobi mint green sleeveless button up top; Forever 21 gold jacquard skirt; Sequin pave branch necklace; Brighthouse Baubles bracelet; Michael Kors white leather straw clutch; ShoeMint Elizabeth nude lace up heelsYou know how you can suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder from lack of sunlight in the winter?  Well I’m pretty sure you can get it from too much humidity in the summer. Last week was quite possibly the hottest, muggiest week of my entire life and the extended heat wave affected my mood, my energy and my motivation to do anything.

light weight.

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!

four ways to wear: monochrome.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; spring outfit photos; style collaboration; Caitlin Lindquist of A Little Dash of Darling; Amanda Sanchez of Little Miss Fearless; Lynzy Coughlin of Sparkling FootstepsIt’s round two of my collaboration with Caitlin of A Little Dash of Darling, Amanda of Little Miss Fearless, and Lynzy of Sparkling Footsteps.  This time, we’re showing you how to wear one color from head to toe for a monochromatic look.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; spring outfit photos; Fashion 4 Ways; Anthropologie orange print blouse; J.Crew Factory neon rose No. 2 Pencil Skirt; BaubleBar bronze geometric necklace; Sequin pave branch necklace; Michael Kors white leather straw clutch; J.Crew pave square link bracelet; Sam Edelman Sophie wedgeYou can usually find me rocking at least two or three different colors in any given outfit, but sticking to a single color from head to toe?  Surprisingly, I’ve never tried it!  Turns out, going monochromatic makes for an outfit that’s just as vivacious as my usual repertoire.  For this challenge, I covered myself in corals.  From an over-saturated blouse and skirt to coral color-blocking on my shoes, I definitely embraced the phrase “head to toe!”

See how Caitlin, Amanda and Lynzy rocked the monochromatic looks over on their blogs and let us know what you think of this trend in the comments below!
