City Girl

To totally switch gears from my last post, here’s a little explosion of color and patterns to brighten up your Tuesday! One of my first days in the city, I went shopping (duh) and this midi skirt was the first thing I bought. I laid eyes on it from across the room at H&M, tried it on in the middle of the store over all my clothes, and the rest was history. I know dressing in all black is like a thing in the city, but I just couldn’t resist this colorful mismatched ensemble. Sue me, y’all.

When it came to styling this skirt, I immediately knew I wanted a striped crop top to wear with it. You would think in NYC it would be really easy to find something so simple, but nope, not so much. It actually wasn’t until I stumbled upon a little boutique in Williamsburg that I found the perfect top. (Thanks Pema New York!) Seriously if you’re ever in the neighborhood (or even if you’re not), you gotta make a pit stop there. For the rest of my look, I went with simple white heels, a bright coral bag for one last pop of color, and my mirrored tortoise sunnies.

As for accessories, I went glam with these fab iridescent Moon & Lola earrings, but kept the rest minimal with just a few gold rings and no bracelets (!!). To top it all off, I opted for bright red nails (Big Apple Red, of course) and coral lips. Sometimes you just gotta go matchy-matchy with your lips, nails, and bag – aka it was a total accident/coincidence, but it kinda works, right?

I’ll leave y’all with a fake ~hailing a cab~ photo to celebrate the fact that I became a pro at it. It’s those small victories, ya know? Miss you already, NYC!
