What My Momma and I Bought at Bergdorf's

My little momma and I have only one sacred ritual whenever we visit the Big Apple: a pilmagrage to Bergdorf's.

Without fail, we make it a point to peep those amazing windows. This time, they were a genius homage to all things phobia. Brilliant. Freud+Fashion=Fabulous

We snarf a relaxing, girly and boozy nosh at the tasty cafe while overlooking the park.

And then we usually head to the Met or for a stroll in Central Park. But this time there was a massive shoe sale going on. Ruh-roh for our wallets.

My mom just HAD to do a little damage.

Nabbed these goooooooorgeous Prada patent kittens with bows.


So that meant I HAD to get a pair too. Chose a print that ironically worked perfectly with my Tory Burch cherry dress.

Color Blocking Trend: One Zara Skirt Two Ways

My time in NYC---land of all black, somber wardrobes---was a reminder that color is the easiest way to stand out in a crowd.

Because even when you're schlepping around a strange city for work, you want to look good, be memorable and command respect.

And color, espcially this season, has the power to make you look fashion-y while still looking professional. Here I centered the look around one stand out piece: a Zara skirt in a gorgeous Kelly green. Paired it with an H&M striped tunic and one of my favorite Forever 21 jackets---both of which go with anything. Added little luxe accents like jewelry and studded carmel Tory Burch flats. Very clean, easy and comfortable look that still managed to look California-y cute.

Another option with this skirt is upping the degree of difficulty with a WHOLE LOTTA color blocking. Swapped out the black and white top with this Elizabeth and James hot pink top. Added gold sandals that go with everything (read: tone everything down) and a vintage quiltted bag. LOVE LOVE LOVE this look. Felt so LA and me in it, NYC all-black fashionistas be damned.
