Pastel Palette

White Dress & Pastel Accessories

Hey friends — I hope you had a wonderful weekend! My parents were in NYC for weekend adventures #2.  This time around, I took them to my office to see where I work (guaranteed recipe for embarrassment!), then we wandered and ate everywhere from midtown to downtown.  We also catched our very first Manhattanhenge — one of four days out of the year where the sunset aligns perfectly with the city street grids.  I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.

So when it came to weekend wear, a whispery white dress was the name of game.  Just like the LBD, the little white dress is the perfect blank canvas for any outfit.  You can let it stand on its own or throw on few colorful accessories.  I obviously opted for the latter with a pastel palette.  I’m all about this powder blue scarf (um hello … pom poms!) and a yellow perforated bag for the perfect pops of pastel.

Winter Sweater & Layers Getting through my second winter in NYC has been no easy feat, but it’s been quite the lesson in layering.  I’m talking chunky knits over button ups over a thermal layer — and I still feel the chill in my bones.  I’m so over this polar vortex and I hope you’re all staying warm!Cream Sweater & Chambray Top Cream Sweater & Chambray Top Zara Oxblood Pants

statement pieces

Casual Outfit + Statement PiecesExcuse the brevity, but sometimes simplicity can be punctuated with a statement piece or two.  For me, an ornate necklace and leopard pumps are all I really need to kick an otherwise ordinary outfit into high gear.
