Ways to Wear It: Part I





Outfit
Blazer: BB Dakota via Loehmanns
Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Zara see it here with my other Zara finds 
Shoes: BCBGeneration
Necklace: Aldo see more of my statement necklaces HERE!!!!


I am all about stripes so when I came across this lovely pencil skirt at Zara I got it quick. The material is so soft and stretchy and comfortable. I instantly knew I wanted to pair it with my
I wear this shirt all the time. I really love the color and the feel of it. I don't know what I'm going to do when it starts to fall apart. LOL. For a finishing touch I popped on my new statement necklace from ALDO. They have great accessories this season. I had been craving a white necklace for the longest and this one spoke to me. It can make any outfit, even jeans and a t-shirt instantly glamourous.

Of course I wore this shirt with another outfit that I will post tomorrow...and I want you all to tell me which way you like it best.
In other news I'm so so happy NYC finally has summer like weather. It was scorching hot when I took these photos last week. I look forward to picnics in Central Park and walking along tiny streets in the East Village and discovering new stores. I love New York in the Spring and Summer.
It's the perfect place to be a women who loves fashion but it's not a great place for dating.
Good thing New York City is my boyfriend...along with Loehmann's and Nordtrom's Rack!

What are you looking forward to doing in your area this Summer?

I've also started a tumblr so check it out


XOXO
