5 Shades of (Pantone) Pink

On June 23rd, we wear pink (yes I had to do it). Happy National Pink Day! To celebrate, throw on your best pink garb and crack open a bottle of ice-cold rosé. Raise your rose-colored glasses to all the things we know and love that are pink.

If you don’t own any pink (like me) or if you’re just in the mood to shop, I’ve rounded up five items you can cop now in the best shades of Pantone pink!

 

  1. Pantone 2446 C

Long Slip Dress, Zara, $49.90

I love a good dusty rose and Zara managed to nail it on the head with this one! This throw-on and go dress is so versatile and can be worn casually on the Amalfi Coast with a pair of flat sandals or dressed up for date night with some metallic heels.

 

2. Pantone 191 C

Printed Cotton Jersey T-Shirt, Versace, $350

This shirt just screams, “Look at me!” If all you want is attention, buy this shirt now and rock it with a chic leather skirt.

 

3. Pantone 705 C

Patricia Satchel in Grained Leather, MCM, $765

I love this bag because this shade of pink is so light you have to do a double take to actually realize it’s pink. The best part is it’s on sale right now for MCM’s summer sale! I have this bag in black and it’s such a great size.

 

4. Pantone 706 C

Oversized Linen Blend Blazer, & Other Stories, $129

I love all my blazers oversized, and this one would be fun to play around with! I’d love to see this paired with a white crop top and a pair of biker shorts in a similar shade.

 

5. Pantone 3519 C

Princetown Leather Slipper, Gucci, $695

This is hands-down my favorite item on the list and I may be a bit biased because I own these in white and would like to have them in every single shade possible. These slippers are definitely a great investment piece and this shade of pink is simply gorgeous!

How are you celebrating National Pink Day? Let me know in the comments below!

Red, White & Boo

Happy Independence Day! Today’s the day to pull out your best red, white and blue. And while you’ve probably been saving that *beloved* American flag bikini or your ‘MURICA graphic tee for this day, it’s time to retire all of the above. For good. Great news, you can still celebrate in style and you don’t even need to break the bank to do it.

I’ve worn this jumpsuit for many different occasions, but I’ve specifically repurposed it with white and red accessories for today. I’m obsessing over all-white everything for the summer, so my trusty Nico Giani tote (scored from the NET-A-PORTER sale) and my Gucci loafers were perfect for this outfit. I topped off the look with red fringe earrings from Topshop for the perfect pop of color. Side note: I’m only wearing one earring because I lost the other running after the subway last week. *oops*

This was definitely the most relaxing Fourth I’ve had in a very long time. I slept in (which was much needed) and only got dressed to hop over to the local diner for a super late breakfast. It’s so weird having this holiday in the middle of the week; not nearly enough time to get a way for a quick holiday jaunt. I’m going to continue taking it easy today and hopefully will be able to catch the annual Macy’s 4th of July fireworks from my new rooftop!

Spring Sprang Sprung

Mr. Larkin crop top | Levi’s wedgie hi-rise jean | Dolce Vita sandals | Michael Kors bag

Spring has finally sprung! Well, kinda. It’s back to feeling like winter, but I’m just thankful it was nice out enough to leave my winter jacket at home and break out a crop top and sandals for the day. It was one of those days where you wanted to spend all hours outside in the sun. Hoping that was just a little taste of what’s to come this summer!

Crop tops used to be an every day staple for me back home – I mean what else are you going to wear when it’s 90 degrees and humid every single day? But now that I’m living up north, my stomach hasn’t seen the light of day in months. I was excited to finally style a spring outfit – I’m itching to switch out the clothes in my closet for some lighter pieces. I especially love this top from Danish brand Mr. Larkin – its oversized sleeves are so fun and look flattering on anyone and it pairs perfect with your favorite pair of denim.

Spring Blues

Four days into spring and I’m still wearing thick sweaters and heavy jackets. I’m so over this weather and ready to break out the sundresses and sandals and have picnics in the park. I’m hoping April brings along some heat, but I guess I’ll embrace the sweater weather while I still can.

Now is the perfect time to stock up on all your cold weather essentials. Big, chunky sweaters like this are starting to go on sale, and if you’re anything like me, you can’t bring yourself to overpay for a plain ‘ol pullover. This blue knit is a gem and I surprisingly stumbled upon it on a random Tuesday at H&M for only $17! I also picked up another similar to this, but flecked with orange for just $20 (see it on my Instagram here). Both were originally $49.99, which isn’t an outrageous price for a sweater, but there are a million other things I’d rather buy with $50.

You can never have too many sweaters and they’re essential pieces for a capsule wardrobe. I’m definitely holding on to both for next fall to add a bright pop of color to my wardrobe!

Wear This: Miami Music Week Edition

Miami Music Week is just getting started and unfortunately, I won’t be partaking because I’m currently stuck in a snow storm, but a city girl can dream of warmer places, right? Although I do love a good chunky sweater and layers upon layers, Florida style will always have a special place in my heart. This week’s roundup is filled with bold florals, cheeky accessories and bikinis galore!

If you’re heading down south this weekend, you’ll want to take some style inspo from some of my picks below. Whether you’re kicking off festival szn at Ultra, soaking up the sun on South Beach or straight up chillin’ at one of the many pool parties, there’s one thing to keep in mind – it’s going to be HOT (as it always is). Miami is the one place where wearing less is truly more.

And if the Magic City isn’t your thing, take some notes because you’ll definitely want to incorporate some of these fun pieces into your summer wardrobe.

Be Mine

Madewell dress | Mango coat (in stores only) – similar here | Zara booties

All I want for Valentine’s Day is to wear this fur coat all day every day. For someone who’s not big on wearing red, I couldn’t pass up this silk midi dress. Not to mention, this color combo is to die for! Midis are a necessity in the winter, especially when you’ve been in an outfit rut for weeks. A thick pair of tights does make all the difference! And if you’re feeling bold, you could wear a pair of medium wash boyfriend/girlfriend/mom jeans underneath (see here, here and here for inspo). Topping this look off with the fur for a stark contrast made me feel like the ultimate fashion gurl.

What are your plans for the big V-day? I may or may not be ordering a heart shaped pizza for dinner later. Sending all the love your way!

Teddy Bear

Urban Outfitters teddy coat | vintage Calvin Klein jeans | ASOS booties

My very first clothing purchase of 2018 was this cute little teddy coat. I managed to stick to my shopping fast (one of my many new year’s resolutions) till the last week of January – a huge accomplishment, especially for me! I sized up in this jacket so I could layer it in the winter, and it makes a great transitional piece into spring. I especially love this rust + light wash denim color combo. Ideal for exploring the pretty streets of the West Village!
