Outfits of the Week

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I aint no fashion blogger...I give them props though...taking photos of your outfit "sounds" easy but the background, the lighting, the lack of wrinkles and stains on your clothes- it's alot...

I've tried taking OOTD photos for the last few weeks only to run into a few issues. Since I lack a permanent and willing photographer, along with not owning a tripod, I realized these mirror photos will have to do...but for all my followers who like these types of posts, I spent a good hour or so of my weekend putting together a couple of outfits I wore over the last few days.

Presenting my current Work Wardrobe:

Sweater: French Connection, Necklace: Zara?, Skirt: Korea, Boots: J Crew, Bag: Mulberry

Quite colorful for me eh?
Honestly, the "inspiration" for this outfit came from something Lucy Watson wore in season 6? of Made in Chelsea - my guilty pleasure (shhh).
Before you think spring has sprung in NY, note when I wore this outfit to work, I was wearing tights so you will have to use your imagination there.
The necklace is either from H&M, Zara, or Mango. I remember seeing it in all three stores but can't remember where I purchased mine from. 
Not the most unique design but classic and trendy as all the shops started carrying this design.

Blazer: Zara, Tee: H&M, Pants:GAP, Boots:American Rag, Bag: Louis Vuitton

Behold the newest additions to my wardrobe and current loves.
These pants from GAP feel like a mix of suede and cotton. The ankle length is perfect for my petite frame, the dark blue shade makes it different from the normal black for work, and with the current 40% off your entire purchase - these are worth a grab!
The booties are a gorgeous taupe shade with belt designs across the sides. I actually have this type of boot in another color but hey, I like what I like!

Blouse: Calvin Klein, Pants: GAP, Shoes: Ralph Lauren, Bag: Michael Khors

In retrospect this blouse makes me look quite like a "mom" but when it comes to comfort this blouse delivers. It's oversized on purpose and these black and white blouses have also been in all the shops probably last season?
This is for the big indulgent lunch days.

Blazer: Zara, Shirt: GAP, Pants: GAP, Shoes: American Rag, Bag: Mulberry

As you may begin to see as the list of clothes begin to repeat, I don't have the biggest wardrobe but hopefully this helps show people you don't need to own much to have a perfectly fine wardrobe.
This outfit is uber simple but makes me look put together enough even though I am quite comfortable.
I wear these types of outfits the most in my life, this ensamble, raybans, and top knots, that's me in a fashion nutshell. 

Blouse: Madewell, Sweater: H&M, Pants: GAP, Bag: Michael Khors, Necklace: J Crew

Yes, this is another lazy outfit. What can I say, if I know I'm going to be sitting for 10 hours behind a computer, I might as well be comfortable! This is something I most likely would wear on a Friday to work.

And lastly....
Jacket: Banana Republic, Scarf: Zara
Here is my outfit for the outside world to see.
Don't let the above pictures fool you, when the weather is bitterly cold ( most of the time ) I wear a huge puffy jacket and a knit scarf 3x longer than myself, but when it's past 45 degrees this is what I usually look like.
I'm in love with this mustard colored scarf I purchased from Zara a few months back, it just add's that pop of color I feel like I really need sometimes.

So that's it! I am now crawling my make up less face back into pink pajamas to write this post. 
All the items mentioned above from the GAP and Bananna Republic should all currently be in store and with their fabulous F&F sale going on, now is the time to grab some deals.

Hope you enjoyed the post!


  1. I completely know how you feel about taking pics of OOTD by yourself. I only have a point and shoot camera and its a pain in the butt to do it by yourself. It takes a while and lighting is never perfect. Luv your outfits, I really wish winter would end. I feel like spring has already arrived in NY, but in montreal we just got dumped with 25 cm of snow.

  2. I love all of these outfits, but especially the last one! That jacket and scarf are beautiful!

  3. I love your choices and appreciate seeing someone else who wears a lot of black and white :) Although I do adore the first outfit choice! I can't wait for the opportunity to wear more skirts! If it makes you feel any better, I don't even have a full length mirror to take OOTD shots...I have resorted to standing on the toilet and using the bathroom mirror in times of urgent help needed from social media friends.

  4. I really like your style! Could you tell us the style names of those GAP pants and American Rag boots?

  5. I love your style! I found you through googling zara leopard sandal and I'm so glad I did!
