Accidentally Audrey

9th July 2014

Today’s look was accidentally Audrey-Esque. I donned black and white stripes (per usual) and a red lip (of course) and spent a good 30 minutes on my hair (unheard of for this bun-loving-bedhead) before walking my thirty minute morning commute through the sauna that is currently New York City. Upon arriving to my office, I glanced in the mirror to see that my well orchestrated locks had somehow been magically replaced with a wild, frizzy fro — thanks New York. I didn’t panic,  but quickly tossed up my mess of a mane into a undone bun with bird’s-nest inspired tendencies. After using up my to “emergency” bobbies, I resulted to a few paperclips that hopefully no one will notice, or miss from the office viola … Accidentally Audrey.

The big shades and bow ring were the final touches, plus my low block heel sandals (that I simply wore because they are one of the few pairs I can do a whole twelve hour day in) were subtle nods to the film princess … I hope Miss Hepburn would approve

This look is actually surprisingly simple for me and I honestly wasn’t planning on posting it (I usually like to try and teach something in my outfits posts like “if you have a serious stripe obsession [hands up] here’s how to wear a striped skirt with a striped top” or “are you afraid of pencil skirts? me too but let’s conquer our fear together with this flattering piece“). But I had some time to kill between work and this amazing Capwell & Co event I attended last night, so naturally we had to fill it with a highline photoshoot, because what else could Paris and I possibly do with a free hour in NYC.
After meeting up with blogger babe Daisy O (who had borrowed these babies for the 4th) I switched into some Capwell & Co bracelets for the event. Oh, this event (sigh)….  it was one of the most beautiful blogger gatherings I have ever been honored to attend! Our hostesses with the mostess, Jessica planned a brilliant rooftop soiree held at the Maritime Hotel. I shortly met up with more blogger gal pals Elana and Melanie. Mel somehow convinced me to sip an Amaretto Cran with her, although I am strictly a “i’ll have half of a martini” kind of gal … so if I sound a bit off in this post or make some dramatic grammar error, blame Mel & the Amaretto (Just kidding … well kind of).

Anyways, we had a ball, stuffed our faces and left blinged out in capwell & co .. you know usual blogger business. Check out more of the fun on instagram by searching #capwellatsunset  & shop my Capwell favorites here:

What do you think of Capwell & Co? Are you a brand fan or just learning about it now? I love discovering new jewelry companies and have quickly caught the Capwell & Co fever… so I’m sure this won’t be the last you’ll see from this beautiful brand. XO

    I don’t know what I like more: your look or how you described it 😉
    And Audrey would approve it, I’m sure 😉
