marigold moment

this weekend a dear friend and avid CP supporter texted me a picture of herself in this hot little jumpsuit, headed out on the town (and looking fabbbb). words can’t explain how much it meant to me– I thought my heart was going to burst. I couldn’t believe there is not only someone willing to read my jumble of thoughts and ideas on the internet, but also someone who wants to buy (and wear) them!!!??! Little encouragements like this are the reason I keep blogging. ❤️ you all, chicas. 

now on to today’s main event– 


mustard, marigold and dandelion yellow are all having a major moment this fall. while the bright color might scare you, it’s actually quite versatile– perfect paired with denim, navy, black or brown. It provides a little pop of excitement and is rich enough to be muted into some very sophisticated looks. Scroll to shop my current finds featuring the hue…

 

1– gauze scarf

2– lips sweatshirt

part work (black leather) + part play (2 tones of denim) = the perfect summer work bag for running to a mid-town meeting, then running to catch the jitney.

monday- the dreaded day of the week where weekend fun comes screeching to a halt and you get smacked in the face with reality. this week prepare for battle in a stunning iro jacket – i discovered it at a hotel boutique of all places last weekend while staying at the one (a new place i highly recommend!).

while i typically am not a fan of red, this ikat print is just too good to pass up (although the jacket also comes in cream & black combo here). it can easily go from work to weekend drinks and pretty much everything in between. plus the slightly padded shoulders and open front are seriously flattering– you have to try it on to really be amazed.

if its $700 price tag is too much to stomach, i found this practically identical style from ann taylor loft

wear it with: 

2. cap toe pumps in the style of the cult classic chanel ones all zee fashionistas have been rocking

3. cropped flares from zara

4. raffia circle tote from my favorite clare vivier

5. simple black topshop tank

6. choker necklace

have a great week! i’m off to london tomorrow– stay tuned!

tie one on

last weekend AEH showed up to her birthday dinner donning this fresh white top– a shockingly reasonable find from club monaco– paired with a simple collar necklace. as a fellow fashionista (she’s currently a rain maker at Sam Edelman) im always eyeing her finds, but this one was too good not to steal. i especially love how the white makes for a clean palate but the tie detail is so not your average tee. i can imagine this super versatile find being worn year round, at work, drinks and everywhere in between.
