Happy Wednesday fashionistas!

I thought it would be fun to play with brighter prints and bolder accents this week, especially since last week’s outfit post was more focused on neutral tones.

Here, I’ve styled bright green floral high waisted shorts by accenting the cobalt blue hues in the print. To bring out the cobalt, I’ve chosen a pair of kitten heels in the same color to emphasize this radiant blue in the outfit. Since I want all the focus to be on the shorts, I kept things simple on top with a white, flowy camisole.

In my opinion, any large bag in this look would overwhelm the entire outfit–so I stuck with a black tassle clutch. The clutch is still a good size, big enough to fit my full size wallet, phone and some other odds and ends. It’s a timeless piece that dresses up the entire look, making it appropriate for a “grabbing drinks after work” outing.

As for accessories, I chose a pair of jeweled chandelier statement earrings to contrast the simplicity of the camisole. To match the jeweled earrings, I also ended up using my jeweled shoe clips on the kitten heels. Sometimes, I like to style the shoe clips on the side of the shoes, instead of just clipping them in the front. This gives an unconventional and unique twist to any simple pair of heels!

Hope you enjoyed this rather colorful ensemble! Happy styling fashionistas,

Apologies for the lack of posts recently–it’s been harder than expected trying to find a balance between interning and blogging, but I promise that I’m trying to be more diligent with my posts!

Summer is in full force now in the city…which means it’s sweltering hot with unbearable humidity. To keep cool in this impossible weather, I try to wear the lightest, loosest fabrics I own. Working in Manhattan during the week means lots of travel via walking or subway, so I try to keep my outfits as simple and comfortable as possible!

I’ve styled a light pink silk maxi skirt here with an eyelet crop top, beige handbag and gold accessories. The light flowy material of the maxi skirt catches the wind very easily and is a great way to keep cool while still covering up (and look appropriate for the office). I love the mid-thigh slits on the sides of the skirt–they make the skirt less restricting and easier to move in.

Because of the high waisted design, I paired the skirt with a cropped eyelet bustier. The cropped and fitted form of the bustier is a lovely contrast to the loose and flowing silhouette of the maxi, making sure that my figure is not swallowed up by the skirt. The simple eyelet print gives subtle details to the outfit, and a few delicate gold necklaces and bracelets help polish off the look!

Enjoy your summer days, and happy styling fashionistas,
