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.

Sandals: DABBLE Two Part Sandals, Topshop
Choker: Black Chain Choker, H&M
No more hiatus! It’s been an insane year of transitions and experimentation but ultimately, I’m back and now more resolved than ever.
This is a daytime look inspired by summertime picnics spent chatting with close friends. It showcases a polka dot crop top, lace-up wedge sandals, a flowy skirt, and the ever-trendy choker.
The top is a mint green color with white polka dot detailing. It is built well with straps and a second layer of fabric covering the breast area so that even without a bra, the bust is subtly supported. The print echoes the playfulness of an outdoor excursion.
The forest green skirt features an elastic waist to accommodate a potential food baby and there are high slits on both sides to allow for mobility without exposure.
Strappy blue-grey wedges allow for comfortable, yet fashionable prancing.
Summertime is all about shimmering, bronzed skin and I felt that a golden choker would do well as an accessory to highlight the collarbone.
