STITCHED SKIRT

From the vibrant colors down to the little detail that this stitched skirt embodies, it is the perfect statement piece to wear with a chambray or my favorite tank for heading out. I went with black sandals for walking around Gramercy and a quick brunch downtown. I always try and create a pop of color with accessories, and in this case I pulled the kelly green from the skirt into my clutch. However, since I went with this bold skirt and clutch, I decided to keep my jewelry simple and went with this dainty engraved necklace from Ettika.

WISH LIST WEDNESDAY - BOOTIES + BACKPACKS

After stumbling across this steal of adorable booties and falling in love with the trendy backpacks during the Elaine Turner holiday preview (stay tuned), I decided to dedicate this post for all the booties and backpacks I am currently craving. I wear my one backpack from Zara (seen on IG here) non stop, and have been on the hunt for other styles and colors I love.

FINDERS KEEPERS

As much as I am preparing to switch over into fall mode, it is no secret that I love a great jumpsuit, especially this one by Finders Keepers. I found this little peplum gem while scouring the COGGLES site recently. COGGLES is a site that houses the latest and greatest trends of a multitude of designers.  Basically, they do the hard work for you by combing through other designer brands and selecting the best items for their site. The peplum detail and deep V back of this romper really dresses it up and makes it unique from many of the other rompers I've come across. The thought of having to tuck this little number away for the fall and winter months has me already dreaming of planning a trip to somewhere warm! Hope everyone's week is off to a good start.

SHERIDAN CROSSBODY BAG

This Sheridan crossbody bag can easily be taken from casual to dressed-up chic based on which ever way you decide to wear it. I tried it out a few different ways below so you could see how adorable it is in each form. I am also a big fan of the floral pattern in this high wasted full skirt that I recently spotted at Express.  I decided to pair it with a cream colored tuxedo blouse -- the nights are starting to cool down a bit, so this blouse worked perfectly for  dinner out. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and are having a great Monday! For me, the weekend was spent celebrating a friends engagement and enjoying the city with my future in-laws in town.  Hoping this week flies by since I head on vacation come Friday night!

HEART PRINT BLOUSE

I have seen this heart print blouse from Joe Fresh around the city over and over and continued to fall in love with it. Ironically, when I worked on a project with Joe Fresh the other week, this blouse was in the collection to shoot and I couldn't resist taking it home. When wearing a piece clothing with a bolder print/pattern, I usually stick to minimal jewelry and let the print remain the focus. I chose a classic pair of faux leather shorts and hunter green heels to tie all the pieces together. I hope you all have a great weekend and TGIF!
