Pants: H&M Love print jean/pants. Fitted pants rarely hug me right because I’m a shorty. These fit like a glove. Love the wide leg (makes you look so much taller) and high waste. Got them at H&M last week, so they’re still in stores and online for $59.99. I thought the price was reasonable given the unique design and decent quality. Anddd you can get the entire suit if you’re really feeling yourself.  BUY HERE

Top: This Zara top will become a wardrobe staple. It’s from the basic collection for only $25.99 and it goes with everything. It’s the perfect crop top length, not a bra and not a regular shirt, which for some reason is difficult to find . Covers the midriff when worn with the majority of my high wasted pants. The cute front knot adds a little pizazz to spice up a normal white top. BUY HERE

Bag: The newest addition to my bag collection is the Juno Circle Bag by Madewell for $158. I can’t stop wearing it and now believe every girl needs a circle bag in their closet. This one is great because it’s slim and compact yet still spacious inside- I’m talking bottle of water, umbrella, makeup bag, emergency bagel plus room to spare. Unfortunately due to popularity it’s sold out right now. I’m assuming they’ll restock soon though- Madewell Juno Bag

Until they do, I’ve listed some amazing alternatives below in all price ranges-

  1. For the most similar option I present to you the Union Hobo Bag from Nordstrom, $198. This one is almost identical in size, but the leather is softer giving it a less structured look.  BUY HEREScreen Shot 2018-02-25 at 8.20.16 AM.png

2. Baggu Circle Purse for $180. This was my runner up when searching for a circle bag. It’s a bit smaller then the Madewell one, but the leather is better quality. I HIGHLY recommend this bag if you’re trying to add a timeless, high quality accessory to your wardrobe. It’s gorgeous in person and it will last years.  BUY HEREScreen Shot 2018-02-25 at 7.56.06 AM

3. For a super trendy budget option, try Forever 21’s beauty below for only $22.99. This one reminds me more of a Chloe and I’m a about that life.  BUY HERE

4. 2nd budget option- the Chelsea28 circle bag from Nordstrom for $49! It’s much smaller then mine and made with “vegan” leather (the term makes me eye roll), but it serves the purpose of getting this minimalistic chic look for cheap. Also- I trust even Nordstrom’s lowest of brands. BUY HERE

Yellow Fever

The silk, chinoiserie, asian inspired trend  has me aroused. This stand out oriental look reads bold, yet delicately feminine. It can be dressed up with a heel and statement accessories or worn casually during the daytime with a flat sandal. I was pumped when I found this bright, fun and affordable pant/top set from Urban Outfitters. Here are some of the looks from my trip to Miami, Florida. Below you’ll find the links to purchase the whole outfit, as well as further suggestions for similar statement pieces. Hope you like 🙂

Breakfast in the Burg

Top: Available now at Madewell. I’m a born and raised Queens girl so finding this top had my pride level at an all time high!! No one ever reps my borough (even though they have the most authentic Asian, Hispanic and Greek food in all of NYC #fact).

Pants: twig high rise black skinny at Urban Outfitters. I have like three of these and just rotate them out each day of the winter because … winter. They don’t stretch, they suck in your lasagna and cheese platter belly, and they hold color through washes. True to size.

Boots: Sam Edelman “Joey Bootie” , buy the below beige color now at Nordstrom Rack. I got my color in store off price shopping and it’s no longer available online.

Jacket: this is a no name from a European department store. Find a similar version now at BCBG. See below.

Or from Asos which is the cheaper option. See below.

Brunch: the egg shop in Williamsburg or the East Village. Great food and cute atmosphere, think Instagrams for days.
