Little White Lace Top

In Blogs by Fashion ChaletLeave a Comment

Keeping today’s look classic and crisp with just a splash of citrus and shine. ๐Ÿ™‚

I found this cute little orange skirt (by Tibi) on the rack, the last one, and in my size at T.J. Maxx. I grabbed it without hesitation, of course. It complemented the lace top I have been wanting to wear for a while now. I feel my best self in this outfit because it’s something I would naturally wear; neutrals and classic with just enough bold accents added in to make my look stand out. I could wear this to work, to dinner or to a party. And be comfortable the entire time with what I am wearing and feel refreshed.

P.S. The jewelry is a mix from both T.J. Maxx (bracelet is by KC Designs) and necklace is J. Crew. So fun. I love mixing and matching my accessories. What do you think about my look today? ๐Ÿ™‚

T.J. Maxx provided a gift card for me to shop my personal “best self” look. I’m already a big T.J. Maxx fan. This was a fun fashion adventure! Thank you.

Tee: Vince (long sleeved version and here) | Jeans: Hudson c/o | Shoes: Brian Atwood ‘Laplata’ (old) | Bracelets: Hermes, Miansai c/o | Sunglasses: Celine | Lipstick: MAC Pink Nouveau mixed with Nars Baby Doll
A rather simple outfit, jazzed up by some of my favorite accessories: fancy-ish shoes, my vintage Chanel and a stack of bracelets.
I’ve received a lot of questions about these Brian Atwood shoes and unfortunately, they’re from last year. I searched the web high and low for them, but couldn’t find them available anywhere. Sorry guys! I would keep trying eBay, since that’s actually where I found these (last year), for half the price.

Yes, I’m so glad I got them. This was actually a challenge for me, as I rarely buy white ANYTHING. Well at least white shoes or pants- since my fear of them getting dirty too easily frightens me. However, these pretty sandals are rather tough. Their chunky heels sold me in a heartbeat. Coming to the blog in an outfit post soon… actually been taking more outfit photos than usual, and I need to get back on track with sharing them ASAP! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stay Tuned! ๐Ÿ˜€

I styled this look together when I was trying to decide what to wear to my husband’s company party over the weekend. It’s always held outdoors at a country club and includes a delightful dinner outside. Knowing this, I decided my outfit had to complement the weather. A shirtdress with a waist-cinching belt seemed perfect. After the meal, we usually all head indoors for dessert, coffee and various prize-winning games. (Last time we won a $7K Home Makeover!) Let’s see if we win anything as equally awesome this time? Anyway, since it tends to get chilly inside, I opted for a classic white jacket to throw over my shoulders. My favorite Balenciaga first bag and strappy Nine West gladiator heels in tow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I am debuting both my new shoes and my new haircut. I chopped nearly six inches of my locks off. So worth it. Perfectly low-maintenance and just in time for Summer… I love it!!

.

About today’s look of the day… ever since I met my (now husband) 2 years ago, I always liked his black and white New Balance sneakers. A trendsetter he is, huh? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then, maybe six months later, these same sneakers (among Nikes, and other neon-bright running shoes) started popping up on girls everywhere from fashion editors to fashion bloggers … I was reminded again of how much I wanted some. So cute but too casual? Fear no more, I took on this self-challenge to dress them up in an unexpected way. Usually sneakers are worn with jeans. I negated the idea and came up with this shiny new look of the day instead. Do you like my outfit? ๐Ÿ™‚

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR COMMENTS ๐Ÿ™‚

4eWatch: Caravelle New York | Scalloped Shorts: Club Monaco (these run big! I would size down) | Blazer: Club Monaco | Handbag: Valentino (in black) | Sunglasses: Celine | Shoes: Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ (adore the gold ones and here’s a less expensive alternative)

When the weather got to be in the high 70’s this past week, I didn’t even want to look at my dark colored clothing. Not that it was that hot, but the warmer temps had me craving a softer look. I recently got both this powder blue short suit and watch from the new Caravelle New York blush story, so I immediately knew I was going to pair the items together. 
Caravelle New York recently introduced the blush story and I have to admit, it’s my favorite to date. The styles still have that little edge to them, which I always gravitate towards, but the combination of blush paired with silver hardware, give it a slightly softer look.

There is nothing worse than riding the subway during rush hour, where you’re crammed in the subway cart like a sardine and getting a seat is a game of chance. I did that for many years and the only way I’d be able to peacefully get through it, was to tune out to some of my favorite music. It was usually something to get me amped and motivated for the day: Beyonce, Jay Z, JT, or some sort of hip hop.
These days, I’m lucky enough to make my own hours (avoiding the rush hour commute), so riding the subway has become something I don’t mind at all. I still listen to my music and I love using the time to catch up on emails or to read a book. I have to say, I’m pretty grateful for NYC’s transportation system, especially since its been by main mode of getting around since I’ve been a teenager.
Fun Fact: New York City has, by far, the highest rate of public transportation use out of any American city and is the largest subway system in the world when measured by track mileage.
And there’s your trivia for the day!
