Yesterday was a very gloomy/ misty day in New York and I decided to take a walk to Chelsea Piers to dream….think….clear my head. I love taking little walks around the city especially to peaceful places like the park or pier. The pier was a little more quiet than usual when I visited yesterday, because it was raining and almost everyone stayed indoors. Though it was raining, it actually wasn’t that cold, so I was able to wear a shear flowy maxi skirt and a cowl neck top with lots of volume that was made by me.
For some reason, I usually never wear any of the things I make, but this top seemed so fitting for the whole look plus, it was pretty cozy so why not!?. I threw on my favourite oversized faux leather vest for a little more layering and you can see another way how I styled it (here). I really love the play between the soft element of the maxi skirt against the grunge/bourgeois feel of the vest…it’s an interesting play on volume and textures which is something I always love experimenting with. Hope you all have a great weekend and I can’t wait to share a lot more upcoming posts with you this week

Oh how I love black and white ensembles…
I love when I can wear a printed tee and it suddenly breathes life into an entire look. For this outfit, I went along with my usual print mixing by combining plaid with this baroque inspired print from one of my favourite tees. I was a little skeptical at first about working the purple plaid into this look but I took the risk and I’m really happy with the way it all turned out because the yellow stripe from the plaid suddenly played a major role in tying both separate together. I think it’s evident that my fringe obsession will never die…I own so many fringe items and I’m convinces that my life is so much better with fringe… hahaha. I decided to with this very “beachy/bohemian like” braid fringe cardigan because not only is it the coolest thing ever but I love how the gold beads are incorporated into the white braided detail. That to me, makes it so much more special. I later decided on wearing my creepers after contemplating my black Deandri platforms….but, I’m happy I wore the creepers because it helped in toning this look down a little.
