all dressed up.

carrie moment.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photo; H&M textured peplum top; L.Mae Ballerina Tulle Skirt; C. 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.

Wonder snakeskin skinny cuff; Hello Fab gold glam sequin clutch; ShoeMint Elizabeth lace up nude heelsWalking the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time was a special moment for me.  It took me nearly six months to actually do it, but once I did, I realized how for the first time, walking from Brooklyn to Manhattan felt like I was heading home.  So now I return from time to time — not usually dressed in a fluffy tulle skirt and lace up heels — but always in awe of incredible city I get to call home.

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.

be dazzled.

Wonder calf hair skinny bangle; ShoeMint hot pink pumpsI thought I’d go for an effortlessly edgy look with this outfit, but it turns out that it was a few weeks too late for warm weather leather.  I wish you could’ve seen how much of a hot mess I was — after walking a few blocks, my skirt was completely turned around and it was so hot and humid, that the faux leather stuck to me like glue.  After hiding behind a wall to adjust (#bloggerproblems), I got my life together and back on track to looking a little less frazzled and a bit more bedazzled.

leopard & lace.

an (almost) ode to black.

Wonder skinny bangles; Crown and Glitter black and gold spike necklace; BaubleBar bronze geometric necklace

After overdosing on color from yesterday’s outfit, my best friend asked me to give an ode to black.  I just about died laughing at the request.  She lives in LA and wears mostly dark shades while I live in NYC and wear mostly colorful brights — it’s quite a comical contrast.  Well boo, this is as good as it’s gonna get: my (almost) ode to black, because it wouldn’t be me without a few pops of neon.
