Urban maroon

Last weekend I ventured over to Smorgasburg in Brooklyn with my sister and one of my friends and was absolutely blown away. In case you are living under a rock and have not heard of Smorgasburg before, it is a food festival in the city that takes place on weekends during the summer.

Smorgasburg is located right on the water, which makes it the perfect location to have photoshoots for the delicious food that you get. You know, as you do. IMG_0899

As for clothing, I busted out my trusty Loft dress that I bought on sale a few years ago and paired it with a white Urban Outfitters bralette. Lastly, I wore a brown quilted crossbody purse that I borrowed from my sister. Please ignore the fact that my sandals definitely do not match :).

Please ignore the fact that my sandals definitely do not match this outfit haha ! I don’t have a brown pair of sandals currently but I am in the market for a pair. Suggestions?

To add more color to this look I wore a pair of blue mirrored sunglasses that I bought from Forever 21. Love reflective lenses for summer!

If you have not yet taken a trip to Smorgasburg, I highly recommend that you do so. It was really hot so we did not eat as much as we normally would, so I think making another trip before we head back to college will be a necessity for us.

With only a few weeks left of this summer, Smorgasburg is a must-see for foodies.

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 guys! Instead of writing an in-depth outfit post with photos for this week, I thought it would be a cool idea to outline my spring 2016 fashion must haves. I have showcased the pieces that I hope to wear a lot to coming spring, simply because they could easily be worn in many different ways. I only own a few of these pieces personally, but I hope to add a few more into my rotation of spring and summer outfits.

Starting with the trendy pieces, I knew that I could not write a blog post on spring 2016 fashion without mentioning off the shoulder tops and button up skirts. I absolutely love the 70’s vibes that are given off by these pieces, and I absolutely cannot wait to maybe pick up and hopefully wear these pieces around campus once the weather warms up a bit.

Now moving towards classics! My tortoiseshell wayfarers have been an absolute go-to of mine for as long as I can remember. I love how the brown coloring of the glasses matches a lot of the clothing I wear, and does not look as stark as black would against my pasty (or as my mother would say, “fair”) skin. I love striped tops and leather jackets, and plan to wear all three of these pieces pretty much everyday because they can be worn in so many different ways.

I have struggled to find a pair of ripped jeans that fit well and do not have a crazy price tag, because I think that it is somewhat ridiculous to drop $100 on a  pair of jeans with rips. Hopefully this season will be the one where I find the perfect pair!

Moving towards shoes, I cannot wait to wear my Vans and Sam Edelman brown booties around campus this spring. Since I bought my Vans about a month ago, I have been wearing them nonstop, much more than I ever thought I would be wearing them. I love how minimalistic yet effortlessly cool they are; they complete almost any look I put together for class. I love my brown booties and have vowed to wear them more this coming season, because I think they would look adorable with florals for the coming months. I also want to get my hands on a pair of Adidas Superstars, but am unsure if I can I justify the hefty price tag. I find it so funny how everything comes back in style at some point, because I distinctly remember having a pair very similar to these back in elementary school.

To accessorize, I think bringing a bright red bag into the mix will do my wardrobe justice. Sometimes my outfit choices fall into the category of being a little too safe at times, so I think that adding a pop of color to my outfits will add an unexpected edge.

I hope you all have a happy Easter Sunday and enjoy the day with your families! I plan to study for a marketing test that I have on Tuesday so I hope you all have more fun than I will today.
