Summer Style: The Denim White Skirt

 photo white-skirt_zpscpv6tnms.gif

What's more summer then whites? Denim white skirts are back in a serious way this Spring/Summer. I love a good denim white skirt because you can take it from work day to weekend. Swap out a work appropriate top like a simple button down for a band tee for a weekend look. They can be easily be paired up with heels or sneaks. Adding a piece like this can add diversity in your closet, and allow to switch up your looks.

Memorial Day Weekend is almost here...and that means Summer is almost here...well at least to me it does. All I can think about is colorful prints, beach days, ice cream cones, and frozen boozey drinks. What I'm looking forward to are the small vacations that the husband and I have lined up this summer....and the major at the end of August (Paris & Florence!).

Checkout out some vacation ready prints:

Jacket: American Eagle | Shirt: LOFT | Pants: Zara | Shoes: c/o LOFT | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
Sunglasses: Call It Spring 

If you have a desk job by day and love fashion then your more then more then not you're like me and find yourself drooling over J.Crew catalogs. There's something about the easy of J.Crew and the grown-up-ness of it that I just love. Sometimes when I put on "work professional" clothes I feel like I'm playing dress up...and not myself. I love that J.Crew has that grown-up feel without taking out my personal style. The style of J.Crew is pretty easy to emulate without having to spend the big bucks on their pieces. Some items you might even have in your closet!

1. Chambray Shirt. To complete a Spring/Summer look you need a chambray shirt and no one does these looks better then J.Crew. These tops are perfect to go from weekday (pair of slacks, printed skirts, or pants) to weekend (pair of jeans or cutoffs).
Shop the tops: here, here, here, and here

2. Printed Bottom. Who says work clothes have to be boring? This Spring opt for a printed pants. These can be dressed up with a crisp white shirt, blazer and a pair of pumps. For a more casual style opt to pair it with heels and a chambray or linen button down.
Shop the bottoms: here, here, here, here, and here

3. The J.Crew Sleeve Roll. This look can not be complete without the J.Crew Sleeve Roll. You can read how to do it over on WhoWhatWear.

4. Statement Necklace. Topping off a look with a statement necklace can really complete the whole look.
Shop the necklaces: here and

5. Up-Dos. If you ever flip through a J.Crew catalogue or through their site lots of the their editorial looks are polished off with up dos...from pony-tails to top-knots.

Shirt: T by Alexander Wang (similar style here) | Shorts: Zara | Shoes: Soludos | Sunglasses: Aldo
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff 

Saturday I felt one with the Brooklyn brownstones and the nature scene of the streets. This weekend was super low key. Spent Saturday roaming around Brooklyn running errands and then got together that night for drinks with my gym crew. Sunday was spent recovering some said drinks. Getting old means not being able to drink like you use too. 

How was your weekend?

the husband and I took a trip to Red Hood this weekend as his artwork is in a show over there. It was a damp day but I just couldn't take not dressing up. I had lived in sweaters and uninspired looks all week, I also just couldn't wait any longer to break out this off the shoulder top. As I told you, I can't get enough of this style. I love how casual yet dressy they can be.

Jacket: Old Navy (old similar style here and here) | Shirt: Free People | Jeans: Madewell
Shoes: Oscar De La Renta (sample sale) | Bag: c/o Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Feather's Boutique 

This week has been so dark and dreary...I was totally not feeling it nor was I feeling inspired at all. The sun finally broke through on Sunday to make a much needed appearance. I finally got to break out my Oscar De La Renta flats that I bought from a recent sample sale for $75! When I saw them I knew I couldn't pass on they are just perfect to through in my bag for Paris and Florence. I love the balance of feminine pieces and tomboy in this overall easy breezy look.

How was your weekend?

Outfit Post: Black & White with a Pop of Color

Shirt: H&M | Jeans: Forever21 | Shoes: Forever21 (old but similar style here)
Scarf: c/o Ann Taylor (old but similar style here and here) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Brooklyn Flea Market

I've noticed that I've been wearing a lot of monochrome colors....and that I might own one to many striped tops. To add a little more Spring feeling to these typical New Yorker looks I added a colorful scarf from Ann Taylor (love this vibrant scarf as well) and a pop of color in the shoes (like these and these). Adding pops of colors through accessories can make the most mundane look vibrant. The bonus of being able to use accessories like scarves and shoes to add pops of colors is that this could be used on any looks from something very casual like my look to a business suite.

How do you add pops of colors in your look?

Fitness 101: From the Studio to the Street

Vest: Ivy Park | Bra: Good Hyouman | Pants: c/o Onzie | Sneakers: c/o Under Armour (similar style here
Sunglasses: Ray Bans | Yoga Bag: Lululemon 

When it comes to workout clothes I like to have variety, as I do lots of different workouts from high to low impact training. For my everyday workouts, which are high intensity training, I would never just wear a sports bra or cropped top- as for me that is something I would never feel comfortable wearing at the gym. For my high impact days I stick to the usual compression pants (or shorts) and a tank top. But when it comes to yoga (especially hot yoga) it's a different story. In this studio space I feel more comfortable wearing just a light impact bra (like this one from Good Hyouman) and compression pants. Plus, when I'm in a room that is cranked up to 90 degrees I don't want a shirt or anything else sticking to me. That's why lately I've been collecting a  lot of to-and-from the studio space clothing, like this vest from Beyonce's line Ivy Park. This collection actually has a lot of great to-and-from pieces. I even bought this cropped top, though I haven't worn it yet but thought would be great for not only the studio but for an athelisure look as well. I like pieces that are street ready with an athelisure look to.

Do you have different work out clothes for different style workouts?

Here are some other Ivy Park items I have been eyeing up as well:
