Navy romance

Hey everyone, and happy Thursday! I hope everyone has had an excellent week so far. And if not, Friday is just around the corner. This week has definitely been a long one, and I for one cannot wait for it to be over. I am going to spend it with a group of my college friends whom I have not seen in a very long time, so I am definitely looking forward to it :).

Onto the outfit! I placed my first order from Shein a few weeks back, and I could not be happier with the nude purse that I received. In fact, I kind of based the rest of my outfit around that piece. I have been looking high and low for a lookalike Celine bag and I still cannot believe I got my hands on it!

To easily get out the door, I will often throw on neutral pieces and spice things up with sweet accessories. I wore quite a lot of neutrals today but think they paired nicely together to create quite a romantic outfit.

To liven up my classic navy skater dress, I put on my favorite Forever 21 statement necklace to add some shine to my very basic outfit.

I finished off my look with a pair of nude lace-up pointed flats and was out the door!

And that is it! I am about to head out to gym but I look forward to posting again next week 🙂 I hope you all have a great night and weekend!

My internship style

Holy new theme and awesome camera quality, Batman! Shoutout to my new friend Leanne for taking pictures of me, whom I am interning with this summer at The Collective PR in NYC. (She has a travel blog that you should totally check out!)

Earlier this week we took a trip to Bryant Park for lunch, which is only a few blocks from our office building actually. And because it was nice out, we even had a little photo shoot because why the heck not :).

Lunch is served!

As a summer intern who is slowly learning about how “adulting” works, you need to always be sure that you are dressed to impress. For this reason, thought I would show you guys what I typically wear for my internship, for those who have yet to have one yet.

I describe my internship style as “kindergarten teacher chic” most days, but I am working on it. I sometimes feel constricted clothing wise when flats and cropped pants are the norm in my office, so I do the best I can by wearing cute colors or accessorizing.

This day, I wore a royal blue cardigan from J. Crew Factory and this awesome black skater dress I got from Target last week for 20 bucks, along with my pair of trusty pair of black sandals.

I would normally pair a statement necklace with this outfit, but since the dress has a high neckline I decided against it.

I love how crisp and clean the collar of this sweater looks when paired with this dress. It also matches with the majority of the outfits that I wear, easily making it a staple in my closet for this summer.

Because I bring my computer to work with me, I have to make sure my bag is big enough to fit it, along with my wallet, chargers, makeup bag, etc. I got this adorable Kate Spade one about a month ago, and I absolutely love it because it is so roomy and sturdy.

Also, it has a zipper which is an essential in New York City. Better safe than sorry!

Hey what’s up hello!

After going out to lunch with a group of friends on Saturday, my roommate agreed to have a little photo shoot with me to truly ~capture~ the day’s weather, as well as outfit of course, for lack of a better term. What better way to celebrate the great weather than to have a little photoshoot?! It was 55 degrees out in New England, which we definitely appreciated after the balmy 10 degree weather we’d had the week before.

I wore a sweater with cutouts from PacSun that I bought a few years ago (here is a similar one from Karmaloop), along with a pair of dark jeans. I wore my Vans slip ons and a fringed printed scarf to add an unexpected twist to the outfit (find a similar one here).

The best part of my outfit, though? Not having to wear a jacket in February!

Although dark colors can be a little bit dull at times, especially during the gloomy winter months, I tried my best to avoid looking that way by playing with textures. The cutouts in my sweater and print on my scarf add a little bit of interest to my look, while a plain black sweater and scarf would fall short in my opinion. The leather slip-ons added a modern touch to my outfit, which I am always an advocate for.

I am the kind of girl that you will never spot in sweatpants simply because I feel my best when I look good – I will even put on a pair of jeans and do my makeup if I plan to study in my room all day, with no intentions of coming face to face with anyone other than my roommates. I feel the most productive, and myself in a pair of jeans. But that’s for another blog post :).

And that is it! I plan to post weekly, and in the coming weeks I plan to post about the importance of dressing to impress, which essentially piggybacks off of my little sweatpants spiel. Let me know in the comments what you all think!

I look forward to starting this journey with you all!
