one sweater, three ways

i saw this sweater available for pre-order a few months ago in the Saks catalog, but couldn’t bring myself to buy it amidst new yorks chilly temperatures. however, as fate would have it, this week’s trip to the laundromat included a pop-in to intermix (lol– only in new york would the two ever be located next to each other) where i came face to face with said sweater, and it was too good to resist. it’s a great transition piece, with a cross over back detail and fringe loud enough to stand alone, but a basic enough color to be worn plenty of times/ways. as an homage to its versatility, here i’ve styled it for three different occasions– work, play and dinner out.

#1 saturday brunch– wear it alone and let your skin peek out from the fringe for a laid back festival look

1 sweater   2 shades  3 sandals  4 shorts  5 bag

#2 at the office— you need to layer it over a silky tank or blouse unless you want some scandalous looks from your coworkers. i cant wait to pair it with the freshest summer work pant– a pair of black culottes– and my go to nude pumps, plus some classic accessories to dress up the casual knit.

1 sweater  2 shoes  earrings  culottes  belt  6 shirt

#3 date night— im kind of digging layering the sweater over a little slip dress for a nod to 90s grunge, but keep it flirty with fringe x2, an organic style cuff by my favorite charleston designer, and a sassy embellished clutch

dog days of summer

well hello there friends! i know its been a while, so pardon the rather scatterbrained nature of today’s post. for those of you who follow me on instagram you know ive been bopping around all sorts of places this summer (maine, montauk, santorini— not the worst vacation schedule ive ever had) and taking a siesta from the blog in favor of r&r. this weekend was my first back in the city. as amazing as this time of year is, this creature of habit has missed being home, so I’m looking forward to getting back in my routine (and blogging more!) as summer winds down. even though the posts have been sparse, you know ive been keeping an eye on all sorts of new fun things to wear with fall fashion right around the corner—stay tuned, i have some great posts coming up– but today im writing a hit list of all the random updates ive got for ya.

#1 studs. while i was in greece i debated a second piercing just to have the excuse to double up on studs. lately ive been wearing earrings the smaller the better. ones i want include this bar set by gorjana, these lightening bolts (only wear one to mix and match) and this dreamy diamond pair— swoon.

#2 reformation— ive seen this brand a few times on pinterest but finally stepped up and ordered a dress for an upcoming wedding. i love that the premise is well made and sustainable clothes, all about quality not quantity. but the trendy nature of the line means styles on par with my favorite zara or better. bonus- they just launched a line for busty girls so now you lucky voluptuous ladies can get a better fit. im a big fan of the minimalist romper and sophisticated two piece set. chg– this off the shoulder top is screaming your name. things tend to sell out quickly so check the site often.Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.29.35 PM

#3 glamglow bright mud. i discovered this new product at sephora after receiving a sample and gotta say im in love, it de-puffs your eyes and gets rid of dark bag (hello jetlag!) like nobodys biz-nass. do yourself a favor and buy some. also, in very embarrassing news, i hit sephora v.i.b. status– a solid example of my shambly life and evidence of the ridiculous amount of beauty products i can now call my own.

#4 fresh gear. in an attempt to get my ass back into the studio at yogavida/ otherwise jump start my workout routine (too much feta!), cute workout gear might help motivate me. thinking about these printed leggings from line beyondyoga and bought a new lulu sports bra as well.

#5 lace up flats. since they are hot hot hot in the bloggosphere, ive already wanted the aquazzura christy flats for a while (meaning i dream about them 3-6 times a week). now luckily there are all sorts of copy cat styles coming out for F/W 15 sans $700 price tag. while the awesome copy cats by zara have sold out everywhere (try these or these for an alternative) im going for a pair of the mgemi suede brezza in the meantime, worn here by hella cool girl sincerely jules.

thats all ive got for today…what have you lovely CPs been up to while ive been gone?!
