A staple in any woman's wardrobe should be a classic black leather jacket. Since moving to NYC it is my go-to jacket for spring and fall, and is perfect for when the sun sets and the night gets a little chilly. My favorite way to style it is with a basic white tee and jeans, or as seen here with black and white stripes. I think it also pairs perfect with a feminine spring dress. It adds a little edge to an otherwise girly outfit, and in the city, this is a must! ; )
Springtime in NYC is the most beautiful time of year. Full, colorful, bright blooms, light jacket weather, sunshine, long walks (as in, walking everywhere). I absolutely love this time of year. Winter and I are not friends one bit, but the cold and snow does force me to appreciate the springtime even more. I bought this black and white striped dress for $12 at a random side street shop in midtown, and absolutely love it. It is is so flowy and perfect with a denim jacket or sweater. I paired it with a hat since it was very bright out that day, and of course...sneakers! I think this would have looked even better with white converse, but as I think those shoes are extremely uncomfortable, I've opted for nikes. Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
This was my outfit of the day last Saturday, and I will probably be wearing something similar this weekend. Weekends to me = casual, comfy, and low-maintenance. This means sneaks, a basic tee, comfy jeans, a beanie or hat, and zero make up. Plus, you never know what adventures you may be having. In this outfit I ended up walking over 7 miles that day! It started as brunch with some girlfriends, meeting Kyle in Central Park, walking across from the west side to the east side, and then back up to Harlem for Fast and Furious 7 (this movie...in one word? EPIC!). I absolutely LOVE weekends in the city. They are full of possibilities, exploring new places, eating good food, and hopefully relaxing at a park as well. The weather this Saturday looks a lot like it was last weekend - sunny with a high of 75 - so I plan to be spending the majority of it outside!
