Black & White

IMG_9162

I love the idea of mixing casual pieces with things that are a little more dressy.  It can make an outfit more interesting and be a little unexpected.  I normally would have worn this outfit with some cute sandals or heels, but sometimes that just isn’t practical when you’re walking around the city.

These are my favorite pair of sneakers.  Nike Free Runs are so comfortable and they come in so many colors and patterns, you’re sure to find a pair you love!  I have two pairs, but I reserve these fun leopard print ones for every day use, and my more colorful ones for the gym.  I love that from afar these look like basic black sneakers, but up closer you can see the faint leopard print.

When I’m wearing an outfit with not much color, I love to add a bold color on my lips.  This one here is ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Succulent.  I highly recommend this long wear formula and I love the bright red-orange hue of this one specifically!

Hope you’re having a great day!

Summer Whites

IMG_7826Some warmer weather has finally arrived in the city, and its feeling like Summer.  I love all white for Summer because it just feels so fresh.  I adore skorts, and this one is one of my favorites!  The asymmetry and sharp angles give it a little more interest.   I topped off this outfit with neutral accessories to keep it from adding too many colors.  These shoes are my obsession of the moment.  The minute I saw them, I knew I had to have them!  They’re actually pretty comfortable, so that’s a plus!

Thanks for reading!
