Grey = Dreary?………Not!



The #OOTD for the post is one that is perfect for chillier weather! I combined two very current style trends and created an outfit that I love.  The two trends are vests and the White Blouse, very popular at NYFW this year.  You can’t go wrong with a simple white blouse.  It dresses up any outfit and is a crisp, clean look.  I paired mine with this heavy duty, super cool grey vest.  It is thick and warm, the long look is tres-chic and it is so simple yet packs a powerful punch.  The creative details such as the high neck closure (which can be done or left undone- equally great) and the simple single button closure at the waist are all this piece needs.  I am a big fan of the equally simplistic, yet elegant, Kisselstein Cord black handbag with gold hardware, including the adorable labrador front and center. I wore black suede over the knee boots with black leggings and popped on a beautiful, chunky turquoise bracelet for color.  In my hair I wore a crystal headband from Henri Bendel, a gift from a special friend that I adore. I hope this outfit calls to you as it does to me!! xo B


Some Time in New York City


“The Statue of Liberty says, Come!”- and I do! I adore everything NYC. The eclectic style and freedom to dress as you feel on any given day is like no other in the city! For today’s post, I chose to dress with a casual, laid back, funky and fun vibe. This outfit incorporates several of my favorite things starting today from the bottom. These pink- studded Doc Marten’s are attention- getters for sure! They are a bubblegum shade of my favorite color, pink and are monochromatically studded with a little Valentino flair (who could ask for more?). They are extremely comfortable and can be worn with skirts, dresses, pants, shorts, whatever you desire. The pants today are a favorite brand with the zipper accents that I am very fond of this season. The pocket detailing is another selling point on these pants. They have a little cool, moto feel. This season and every season, cashmere is where it’s at. I chose to top these pants with a very plain, pink v-neck cashmere sweater and wore a simple white t-shirt that is barely visible, but adds a layer. I added a fun baseball cap along with some pink, Wildfox sunglasses that are the bomb. I was ready for a fun, adventurous day in the city and felt really comfy, yet very pulled together and neat.   “Life is Too Short to Wear Boring Clothes.” Xo B
