I’m finally able to start wearing all the dresses that have been piling up in my closet! It feels so liberating not having to bundle up and wear multiple layers just to fight against the wind chill of the city.

I thought that this gorgeous day warranted a royal blue dress, a deep blue even more vibrant than the gorgeous sky. What I love about this particular dress are its cut and collar details: a shift cut for better maneuverability and laser cut floral details to add something extra on the collar.

I wanted to contrast the deep blue with a pop of color and mint seemed to be the perfect option. A mint clutch, mint earrings and floral mint heels seemed to do the trick, complementing the royal blue hue. Finally, some delicate bracelets polish the look off!

Take advantage of all the nice weather coming up! Thanks for reading!

                   Trench Coat | Dress | Necklace | Bracelet | Bag

With this semester coming to an end, and all these preparations being made for my next semester at NYU London, I can’t help but have London on my mind!

After talking with a lot of my friends who had previously spent a semester in London, I realized I wouldn’t be able to survive without a sturdy, rain resistant trench coat. London weather is moderate, but very inconsistent throughout the day. No wonder that the classic trench is a stable wardrobe piece for all natives of London!

To pair with the classic trench, I decided to go with a black scallop shift dress. The neutral tones in this pair complement each other and give off an air of sophistication, something I consider a must while wandering through London streets.

I finished this look with a pair of chunky heeled sandals, comfortable enough for some light walking and exploring, as well as some gold statement jewelry pieces and my go-to, staple LV Tote.

I honestly can’t wait to go and really explore the nooks and crannies that London offers, and I can’t wait to share it all with you guys of course!

Until then, keep styling fashionistas,

                        Top | Scarf | Jeans | Shoes | Clutch | Earrings

There was finally a few warm days in the city last week, perfect photo shooting weather! I’ve been so sick of wearing boots and a overcoat every single day, 7 days a week in the gloomy, cold weather that it was so refreshing to be able to put on a nice blouse and slip in some kitten heels for a nice stroll outside.

What reminds me the most about spring are florals and pastels…and what better way to welcome back this warm weather than to feature both in one look! I found the absolute perfect scarf at Loft the other day, with the light pink and blue hues combined with a vibrant floral print.

I wanted to highlight the scarf, so I made sure that the rest of the outfit was simple, but classic. I am in love with the scallop detailing running down the flowy white blouse, and paired with some medium wash distressed jeans, this outfit encompasses an aura of casual spring luxe.

Finally, I completed this look with some finishing accessories: crystal chandelier earrings, a gemstone clutch, and some simple nude kitten heels.

I hope that you guys take advantage of the nice weather coming up! It’s time to put away those sweaters and boots and reorganize your closets for spring!

Happy styling fashionistas,
