Now that I’m reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, I’m taken back to good ole Savannah. So I busted out this cute seersucker shorts suit and brought a little southern charm to NYC!

Summer has arrived to NYC! Yaaaay :)
I’ve been waiting to bust out this salmony ensemble. I really love the details on this raw silk cami by Marc Jacobs. The pleats down the front are delicate and feel kind of flappery and art deco somehow. And the peekaboo little lace around the middle and the sheer chiffon under the bust make it flirty.
The cardigan is from Talbots and is soft and lightweight. The necklace is Gerard Yosca. Love that man.
The skirt is a subtle print of neutral and neon. So the effect is soft. Not loud.  And the blush leather peep-toe d’orsay pumps are sweet and neutral as well.
The look is very feminine and lovely.

For Selfie Saturday I’m rocking this great marled red sweater. It’s such a great piece. It is cut kind of like a letterman jacket. And has great red buttons.

Simple. Chic. And works for work. 
I put a fun patterned pant (basically one of my favorite things) with a soft, sheer light blue top with tiny texedoesque ruffles down the front. And made it office-ready with a blazer.
Patterned pants are so versatile. You can dress them up with sparkly jewelry and pretty pumps. Or play them down if you really wanted to be casual. But take my advice… be awesome every day. There’s nothing fabulous about looking casual. Earrings or a great mani can take your look to the next level.

On this Selfie Saturday, I’m reminded that in NYC, Summer is still a little ways away. 

This coat was my grandmothers. She had it shortened and had the sleeves cropped in the 60s to be in line with the style of the times. I just love it.

I wore this great yellow sweater to a Model Citizen event and I’m renting the piece out on the platform when it goes live. It’s cool to be in on the ground level of something and get to test something so awesome within the fashion community.

What I love most about this piece is the buttons with the adorable sparkly details. I love the floral lace for Spring. And the way the panels of lace carry over to a small detail on the back. So it’s not just plain. And, of course, I love the bright color.

Azurite. Feels. So. Right.

Dots! I paired these cute black and white polka dot pants with this amazing sweater because I loved that the pearls on the collar mimicked the dots. Very playful!
And these great neutral mary jane pumps keep the look sophisticated. YSL does these particular ones very nicely.

Getting ready for the warmer weather with strappy sandals! This great chevron dress is a great light weigh chiffon. This is my favorite jacket. I like it because it is also lightweight and looks like poodle fur. Paired with this beautiful leather bag, the look is complete. I love the wooden handles and the hardware on the closure.
Both the bag and the sandals can be found at iBoutiques!

It’s finally a little warmer. Hence the 3/4 length sleeves on this cable sweater. But wearing the bejeweled embellished tank underneath may have been wishful thinking. I definitely had to keep the sweater on. It’s not THAT warm yet. However it did add a bit of sparkle to my layers.

I added a little glam to this casual look with metallic accessories. I love this gold collar and don’t wear it as often as I should. I’m sure we all remember when Louis Vuitton did these collars for the fall 2011 collection. I continued with the gold theme with these great pointy gold cap toe pumps.

I paired my classic Black and white tweed jacket and camelia brooch with a men’s red and white button down and black leather leggings in a menswear meets Lagerfeld amalgam. Black and white tweed pointy-toes bow shoes tie the look together.

These winter white micro velvet pants are super soft and warm. Paired with an embellished navy top. The little bead clusters all over the front ad a festive sparkle that is much needed in this gloomy NYC weather. Navy and white striped cardigan. And black equestrian knee high boots with gold buckle.

Can’t wait for the winter to be over. Ready to bust out the Spring stuff! Who’s with me?!?!
