 spring time in nyc calls for creamy cashmere, casual denim && strutting around the city accompanied by the cutest frenchmen.

grey days

5th April 2013

i’m normally dripping in color, but today i paired pattern to dress up a day of grey!
i’ve been itching to step out in shorts but the lack-of-spring nyc weather has forbidden me to do so. to say warm (or just hide your legs) pair a cozy pair of plaid shorts with tights, you’ll look slimmer while staying toasty
dots on dots & plaid on plaid: to keep this outfit from looking boring on account of the lack of color, i paired patterns in the same color scheme to keep things interesting!

grey or blue

29th November 2012

casual courtney must have been listening to the song “grey or blue” by jaymay while getting ready this morning && it served as the subconscious inspiration for today’s outfit.
“your eyes are either grey or blue, i’m never close enough to say”

 dress down an otherwise dressy pencil skirt by pairing it with riding boots && a boyfriend sweater. finish with tights, to keep from looking skimpy && a statement necklace to draw the attention up to your face while evening out your proportions!

joie de vivre

6th November 2012

some think kate spade is all about twirl worthy dresses, bow belts && sky high heels, but there is so much more to the brand then just that! to prove it to you, here is a casual kate spade look.

like the last post, 99% of this look is kate spade, even though it is a pretty casual day time look!
oh && as a special treat, waffles crashed this post!
my stylish sweatshirt was from august’s garance doré collection (now on sale) && reads “joie de vivre”, french for joy of life pairs easily with pops of red and polka dots!
 can we take a second to talk about these polka dot jeans… oh, they are just the most amazing things! kate gave dark denim a make over with stylish spots. i went a little crazy with the dots but you could also wow by wearing them with just a basic bright tee.
