crop swap

i love the unexpected styling of this black aritzia wrap top with a pair of cropped navy pants, but the look got even sweeter when i found a $20 dupe for the shirt at h&m! the sexiness of an open back pairs perfectly against slightly tomboyish chinos, for a Gwen Stefani sort of vibe. Try it two ways, dressed up or down…

1– h&m tie top    2– aritzia crop top    3– flared chinos

4– sunglasses    5– bucket bag    6– wedge sandals

7– superstar sneakers    8– gold bracelet    9– rainbow bracelet

hope you have a good week CPs!! Xx

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.

siesta

#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?!

on trend

one of 2015s newest fads– the overall trend— has hit new york this summer in a big way. in typical city girl custom, the chic peas ive been seeing tend to keep it simple– think black, white, stripes, and oversized proportions- all while running around with a cold pressed iced coffee in hand.

while overalls day to day may take some getting used to, if im going to take a walk out of my comfort zone, i plan on going all out. I figure my festival debut at this weeked’s Governors Ball might be the perfect place! And in her honor, i may channel my inner Lana with a headwrap to boot– LKH have you bought your ticket yet?!
