Whenever I wear leopard it just picks me up. I mean, I could be having a shitty day but putting on animal prints just changed my mood and demeanor completely ( Rawrrr :). Leopard prints are classic and timeless, and with a pop of color like this bright pink bag will instantly modernized the look.

Whenever I go to Macy’s, my favorite department to look for clothing that fits my style is the Impulse section. Some of my favorite brands in the dept includes Bar iii, Kensie, BCBG, Maidson Jules, French Connection and it’s new brand collaboration MADE just to name a few! One of my favorite pieces I picked up recently is this quilted-like skirt. It has a fun print, an edgy cut (slightly longer in the back and shorter in the front), the quality is also pretty good and you can’t beat the under $50 price tag! I paired it with this stripes classic blouse from Bar iii which I wore to work with a long pencil skirt, but changed into this shorter fun version when I stepped out to meet with friends the other evening for dinner. :)

Whenever I feel like my outfit has too much of one or the other, I’ll swap it out for a substitute until I find my balance. I think it’s important to experiment, mix and match your favorite pieces to find the look that works for you.

Keeping It Simple…Sorta

One of the things that I love about NY is the fact that there are as many bodegas as there are photo ops conveniently located at every corner. Whether it is an alley way, next to a dirty glass door, against random brick walls, a dumpster, or even in front of 99 cent City, everything just looks a little bit cooler…

I wasn’t going anywhere important on this sunny and warm day , just down the street and around the corner to my favorite Caribbean fast food joint, Golden Crust (actually that was important). I wanted to test out these booties to see how comfortable they are before I actually wear them out at night. The verdict? Umm, not so comfortable after say 45 minutes, but they are so freakin’ sexy it’s worth it. Sorry feet.

Full on floral has a reputation for being a Spring & Summer print, but with such ruby red velvety colors mixed with gray tones, this mysterious print seems like the perfect transition into Fall. Of course I’m nowhere near ready to part ways with the warm sunny days (I haven’t even got my tan yet!), so I made this outfit with that in mind…Combining the open back details, crop top and light weight material that’s instantly cool against the skin. This outfit is pretty much perfect for day or night, summer or fall and best of all, it can be mixed with pretty much anything!

This outfit can be purchase separately HERE
