Tribe Vibe

Head to Toe: Romper, H&M // Booties, Musse & Cloud // Bag, Zara


Summer may be coming to a close, yet I couldn’t help but take advantage of some end-of-season steals on my lunch break yesterday. I wandered into H&M and picked up this romper and necklace for $15. Plus, since it has long sleeves, I think I can still get some miles out of it in early fall. I also had to pick Essie’s “Sandy Beach” beige for my manicure instead of my go-to plum for autumn. I’m just not ready yet!

Dog Days

Head to Toe: Jumper, Karen Zambos // Jacket, L Train Vintage // Mules, Nina // Bag, Zara

Even though I've been done with college for nearly five years (swallow), I always find myself with the back-to-school blues this time of year. But the ever-true silver lining is fashion, which is so so fun in the fall. The season always feels like an excuse to shop, which is why I didn't feel guilty nabbing this denim jacket at the vintage store for $10 this weekend. And while the heat of summer clings on, transitional pieces like this light jumper are key. Still, I'm hoping to pick up a few summer-only pieces (like a new bikini) before Labor Day. Heard of any good sales?

Sweet Summer

Head to Toe: Romper, Parker // Booties, Musse & Cloud // Bag, Zara

Cheers to the weekend, fashionistas! Is it the last official summer Friday? End of August or not, it still feels steamy in NYC. I'm living it up for these next few weeks and getting one last beach getaway in with friends for Labor Day. After that, pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider donuts and every other basic-b fall thing imaginable is fair game. Until then, I'm still opting for summer staples like this breezy romper and drinking the rest of the rosé.

Carrie

Head to Toe: Top, Nicole Miller // Jeans, Thrifted // Heels, Coolway // Bag, Zara

These wild waves are the result of sleeping with french braids, which for me, having naturally pin-straight hair, is pretty fun to do every once in a while. I couldn't help but feel like Carrie Bradshaw circa 2001. #Goals.

Sport Authority

Head to Toe: Tank and pants, Nike // Heels, Clark's // Bag, Zara

Any trend that allows me to wear track pants to work (granted, paired with heels) is good in my book. Thank you, athleisure, I hope you're here to stay. This outfit was the perfect way to kick off a sporty weekend watching the Orioles in Baltimore. There's nothing like a weekend getaway—even when your team loses 11-2. Happy Monday, fashionistas!

Nothing But Net

Head to Toe: Jersey, L Train Vintage // Skirt, J Brand // Sandals, Athleta x Teva // Bag, Zara


Sean has managed to convert me into a Knicks fan, and when I saw this jersey in my favorite vintage shop, I couldn’t resist rocking some city pride. Thanks to sport-fashion being so trendy, I could even pull it off for work paired with a denim skirt. Swoosh!

Catch My Midriff?

Head to Toe: Jeans, thrifted Levi's // Sandals, Latigo

My favorite thing about these jeans is that they come up high enough to cover my belly button, and the midriff piercing I got when I was 16. All summer, I've been struggling with, after 10 years, if I should take it out. But the gaping hole left behind just seems unattractive. And maybe I'm still holding on to that last glimmer (literally) of my youth, a reminder of afternoons spent at the mall searching for the perfect charm. My all-time favorite was the (faux) diamond-encrusted palm tree I got with my best friends one summer in Fort Lauderdale. Now, I've got the closest thing to a grown-up appropriate stud. What's your vote, to belly ring or not to belly ring?

Bright White

Head to Toe: Blouse, C/MEO // Heels, Clarks // Jeans, 341 // Bag, Zara

You can never go wrong with a clean white blouse, no? Crisp elements were needed to make these distressed jeans office appropriate. Now, here's to not worrying about work for the next few days. Happy weekend, fashionistas!

Team USA

Head to Toe: Shorts, L Train Vintage // Sneakers, Keds

When better to sport a little Americana than during the olympics? I've been enjoying watching the games in the evenings, swimming and gymnastics in particular. I found these red, white and blue shorts, with some very old Macy's tags attached, at my favorite vintage shop in Brooklyn. They're super high-waisted, so I wore them with a cropped tank for work on this steamy Monday (and threw on a jean jacket when I got to the office). Hooray for Monday being checked off, and go USA!

Trés Chic

Head to Toe: Blouse, thrifted // Jeans, Akira // Bag, Zara // Scarf, street vendor

Yesterday, I decided to look the part for a morning of Uptown appointments and an after-work cocktail party. It was the perfect occasion to pull out this scarf that I scored from a street vendor in Germany. (Thanks Pinterest for showing me how to tie it.) I also got a ton of compliments on these trendy jeans—see here and here. I'm already getting my money's worth out of them! Happy Friday, fashionistas.
