Dressed Up In White

White is one of my favorite colors to wear this spring. My sister wore this outfit  today on a walk through the park. She has on an airy white romper from Bloomingdales and sandals she got last summer at Off Saks.  If you like her romper, you can get one here.

This is the fourth post in my graduation series. Click here for parts 1, 2 and 3.

My Barnard College graduation ceremony was held at Madison Square Garden.  Under my cap and gown, I decided to wear a hot pink dress.  You may remember it from my Francesca’s post.  My favorite part of the dress is the big bow in the back. Here are some pictures.

Fashion Looks of a College Graduate: Part 2

Here is the second post of my graduation series.  Click here for part 1.

On Thursday of last week, I attended a boat cruise. The cruise departed from Chelsea Piers and sailed around the Hudson River. I wanted to wear something flowy that would keep me warm, so I opted for a long dress from BCBG. Here are some pictures of my outfit.

Fashion Looks of a College Graduate: Part 1

This is the first post of my five part graduation series.  After four years of work, studying and fun, l am finally a Barnard College alum. Since Barnard is a school of Columbia University, I attended three senior events and two graduations: university and school wide.  I want to share what I decided to wear to each.  Hope you enjoy!

On Tuesday, May 5,  I attended the first of the three senior events.  I had dinner with my class and later headed downtown for a night full of singing and dancing at the Sky Room Lounge in NYC.  The dress I decided to wear is from the Aqua section in Bloomingdales.

Spring Outfit Inspiration

Warm, sunny weather always puts me in a good mood.  Here is an outfit that I would wear on a spring day. The ankle boots are perfect for a casual outing, and the vibrant skirt and patterned shirt liven the outfit to complement a beautiful day. This outfit will make you look and feel put together.

Here are some pictures of the outfit from last weekend when my sister and I walked around the city photographing, filming and window shopping.

Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Winter to Spring

Even though Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, winter is officially over. It is time to put away heavy winter coats to make room for spring dresses and skirts.

Here are my tips for transitioning your wardrobe from the winter to the spring.

Bright Colors and Prints

Over the winter, you will find me dressed in black almost everyday. One easy thing to do to start transitioning your wardrobe to spring is to incorporate brighter colors into your outfits: yellows, purples, and pastels. Anything goes!

Tights

Since we had a cold winter, it may take a while for the weather to warm up. If you opt for dresses, do not go barelegged just yet. Wearing either sheer or opaque tights will allow you to expose your legs and stay warm.

Layering

Incorporating layers into your outfit is another good way to stay warm. In the spring, I recommend wearing a light jacket with a thin cardigan or shirt underneath. That way, you can add and remove layers for your comfort.

Accessorizing (Scarves, Jewelry etc.)

I love choosing accessories to go along with my outfits. I can guarantee that you will find me wearing a scarf almost everyday. Incorporating colorful scarves and bags adds an immediate pick me up to a look. If you like to wear jewelry, you can also add rings, bracelets and necklaces.

Tall Boots to Short Boots and Flats

The winter may be over, but you do not have to pack up all your boots. Spring is the perfect time to wear short boots, flats, and sneakers. You can find bright and colorful shoes or wear cute socks underneath your booties. I usually wear my Toms, Supergas, or short Frye boots.

Umbrellas

You might want to invest in a trendy umbrella that can fit into your bag. You never know when it is going to rain, so it is good to be prepared.

Here are four outfits I would wear in the spring. Hopefully they can give you inspiration for some more spring looks!

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

I always watch Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week online. As this is the last year that Fashion Week is at Lincoln Center, it was the perfect time to make the trek down to Lincoln Center, and experience the tents firsthand. One day, searching for inspiration for my photography class, I inched closer and closer to West 66th Street and ended up under Mercedes-Benz’s tents. The fashionable people taking pictures of others, waiting to attend a show, or simply observing, inspired me. These are some of my favorite photos from that day.
