Pretty. Pink. Paris.

Since i began sharing some of my personal style fashion on the blog, they have all been mostly on the dressy side; dinner and out with the girls ready is how i think of it.  This round i wanted to share something more casual and relaxed.  It's officially sweater weather so knits and layers is where its at. 

Autumn is my favorite time of the year so i can't wait to share more layered looks with you all.

Autumnal Layers with ModCloth


I'm here to bring you another collaboration with ModCloth!  As part of a blogger challenge, i along with other select groups, was asked to represent my personal style by featuring knits and layers for this autumn season and how to wear them.  I wanted to stay true to self and show off some of that sleek New York City gal style with a hint of vintage. 

Monochromatic colors like the staple black and camel were my go-to pallets.  Modcloth offers some impressive and versatile pieces to go with anything in your wardrobe.  I was due for a new style board so accepting this challenge was a no brainer.  I had a lot of fun with it.  I hope you enjoy them as well and leave a bit inspired by my looks.

Walk In The Park

This look is more on the casual side.  Perfect for 'A Walk in the Park' like the title says or just stylishly running errands about the city.  Or perhaps, which was inspired by my daily routine, a cute and sophisticated look for sitting at the cafe while blogging and scouting for Mr. Right.  Of course my favorite piece is the cardigan and its versatility. You can basically pair this with almost anything.

NYC Nights

I am basically in love with every. single. item. on this style board! It is exactly how i would expect to leave the house for a night out with the girls.  It says flirty, young, and sophisticated. And the beauty of this look is that it can be worn by both the 20 something and the 30 something year olds.  I am extremely excited over this board.

City Gal

This is a look that can transcend from day to night.  It has just the right elements to turn it up if need be.  Leather pants are welcomed at anytime of the day and faux fur just makes everything fun.  This looks screams confidence and control and in the end, that is all we really want to the world to see - how incredibly stylish and confident we are.

Sunday Soup - Lentil

I've been on a soup kick lately and even entertained the idea of making a Sunday Soup feature, but i know me too well and its something i'll soon bore over and not commit too.  I decided to try my hand and lentil soup - this is my first attempt and i'm already making up my own rules. But, if its made with love then i have nothing to worry about, right. 

I liked how rich and appetizing the large ingredients looked so i wanted to quickly share on the blog instead of instagram. No recipe sharing for this one, but if you care to know what i was following it was this one by Giada De Laurentiis.  Just a couple of things you will mediately notice is that my tomatoes are fresh as opposed to the canned version, and my unions are large because the roommate needs to spot them and dig out.

Happy Sunday Evening Lovers!

FKA twigs #throughglass

One of the coolest videos i've seen in a while. 
FKA Twigs is honestly the only one who should ever be allowed to wear google glasses.  
This girl is badass!

I was in the midst of a charity event when my insta feed informed me of the sad news. Oscar de la Renta was the first designer I ever knew of, not because of his Latin roots but because my grandmother, ever the stylish dame, schooled me proper on him.  He's the only designer she ever spoke of (aside from Carolina Herrera) and knew something then, that now every generation can appreciate.  Mr. de la Renta knew and understood the woman's body and designed as such - pure elegance.  There is such a staple in his designs i knew instantly when it was his. What a loss. Such a loss. 

On my twitter feed I shared that I have never been the type of girl/woman to dream up a wedding dress, I would sooner tell you what my dream home would be like, but I always knew that if it ever came to that, Oscar de la Renta had to be the designer. A special and timeless piece just for me. Some wishes aren't meant to be but at least we've got his legacy to hold on too.

"Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself." 

Rest In Peace Mr de la Renta.
