Styling Things I Picked Up in NYC

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Every summer when I go to New York I take it as an opportunity to buy some things for the new school year and I usually make a few larger purchases or buy something I normally wouldn’t. It’s a chance to step outside and take some chances and I usually don’t end up regretting them.They turn out to be some of my favorite most memorable pieces that I wear all the time and it’s so nice to have memories attached to the pieces. 

On this trip I didn’t actually buy anything too pricey but I did find a lot of cute pieces that are going to be perfect for this coming school year.
I have been trying to convince my friend to buy this dress for months now and since she won’t do it I finally caved and bought it for myself. It’s a loose fitting Kaftan even though I got it in a size 4. I’m usually at least a 10 at H&M so the sizing is very big on this one. 
Dress // Belt bag // shoes: sold out
Tank: $6 sale find // Silky Zebra Skirt: I had to order this one in my size the instant I touched it. // Flats: Something Navy: sold out // Purse: I cant believe its on sale for $9!
My most frivolous and spendy item of the trip was this Clare V. Lips tee  It will be so fun layered for school. 
Tee // shorts // shoes: sold out
I wanted to go to Everlane for so long because I’ve heard so many great things about these white crops. I didn’t want to order them online because I hate trying on pants and having to send them back. I did love the fit and the price and the material so they came home with me.
These Aritzia tees are my favorite. This one is replacing my well loved and worn one from 3 years ago.

These pants were outside of my norm so I figured why not. Elastic waist too which will make them comfy work pants!

These shorts are the same print as the midi skirt I posted in a Zara selfie last week. I’m a sucker for this print!

This dress is under $40! Runs really big. I saw it in store in a small and while that fit I ordered the Medium online and it's perfect.  // Knot sandals that look just like the Jimmy Choo’s // My 3rd Dagne Dover petite tote. See it close up below.
Here she is again! This mini tote is the perfect shade of green/blue/gray!
My 2nd Dagne Dover Dakota backpack.  I couldn't resist this pink color and it's perfect for travel and also on sale right now!
What I wore shopping on my last day in NYC.
Skirt This one totally reminds me of the brand Reformation but this skirt is way more affordable // Lace cami // Sneakers // This sneaker protector spray that worked wonders keeping them pristine even in a rainstorm! // Bag // found this trench at Zara on the trip and it will be a staple for years! I can't find it online anymore though.
What I wore for my first night in NY when meeting up with my friend Ashley at the Plaza in NYC.  Skirt // Black Lace cami // vintage pin // old Banana Republic Scarf // Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote // very old Old Navy sandals.

I’m excited to add these to my work pants collection. Sandals are St. Agni and sweater tank is just $12 !
Tank is super old // shorts // sunnies // sneakers are an investment but are worth the $$ // Bag: Zara sale find. It's marked down right now to $9!
