This outfit is inspired by a mix of leftover holiday cheer and the anticipation of Valentine’s Day. For the first time in years, I’m in a solid relationship and am actually looking forward to spending time with the one I love. The star of this look is a periwinkle crushed velvet mini dress. The sweetheart-esque neckline with ruched detailing and short sleeves bring out a romantic feeling appropriate for date night out.
I’ve paired the dress with velvet stilettos for the utmost height and fun rectangular earrings to contrast.

Hi friends! Here in NY, we’re still in the heat of summer but autumn is slowly making its appearance known with diminishing daylight and chillier mornings. My outfit is centered around this bright and colorful bird of paradise dress. Because the print is contrasted against a black background, it almost has a graphic and urban feel. The fit is loose and comfortable but with a structured neckline. I’ve styled it with chunky sandals and a black choker for an edgy look.

Apologies for the lack of updates, but I’ve just moved out of my parents’ house in Queens into my own apartment in Brooklyn and have been spending a lot of time adjusting my schedule.
The weather here in NY has been extremely turbulent; weekdays are sunny and warm, while weekends have remained rainy and frigid. This outfit was inspired by the contrast and balances a stormy, weather-proof, windbreaker on top of an iridescent and airy summer dress.
