This week, I dabbled in a little bit of NYFW and attended the Leanne Marshall Spring/Summer 2014 show.  It was the perfect opportunity to give another spring piece a last hurrah by mixing a little of girly with a little bit of grunge.

Wonder snakeskin skinny cuff bangle; CC Skye Mercy Princess pave cone bracelet; Juicy Couture pave pyramid leather bracelet; Diane von Furstenberg DVF black tassel clutch; Zara neon snake skin heels with bucklesI’m obsessed with this pink tulle skirt and channeled Carrie Bradshaw the first time I wore it.  With fall nipping at our heels, I paired the piece with one of the softest t-shirts I own. Darker accessories take this look from princess to punk.

lighthouse.

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!

denim + dots.

Wonder crystal necklace; Linea Pelle Grayson Bar Clutch; J.Crew turquoise stretch bracelet; J.Crew square pave link bracelet; Zara white beige colorblock heelsMy outfits so far this week have been decidedly moody.  Darker, richer colors are seeping their way back into my wardrobe as it feels like fall is just around the corner.  And even though temps have been significantly cooler than usual, I have to remind myself that it’s still summer!  I need to stop dwelling on how fleeting the last weeks of the season feel and start enjoying all the adventures there are left to be had.  So today’s cheerier attitude calls for a much peppier outfit — and nothing says summer summer summertime than chambray, sandals and polka dots.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; 2013 pre-fall outfit photos; London Times Mirror Print Scuba Dress; Banana Republic white sparkle stone necklace; Michael Kors white leather straw clutch; Juicy Couture black pave pyramid stretch bracelet; CC Skye Maize gold geometric bracelet; Zara white beige colorblock heelThere are a few things in life that will never get old: morning strolls by the water, the view of the Manhattan skyline, and floral print frocks.  … Okay, so maybe the first two have a little more longevity, but I love that there’s an infinite amount of ways to wear florals.  This is my first foray into mirrored prints and I’m really digging the sleek and modern twist on an otherwise everyday classic.  This dress will definitely be in heavy rotation both in and out of the office as we transition from summer to fall.
