A Riverside Walk

Summer is slowly coming to an end, so why not take advantage of the last warm days before the brisk weather kicks in? A Riverside Walk - Summer 2017

One of my favorite places to take walks through is Riverside Park because of how lovely the park is when the trees and flowers are in bloom. As usual, I always aim for comfort when putting together outfits. I figure I be more daring and wear a piece that I would not normally wear–a romper.

I never was a fan of rompers until I found this one. This royal blue romper is a perfect piece to transition from Summer to Fall since it can be paired with many patterns and colors. In addition, depending on the romper, you can dress it up for a special occasion or dress it down for a simple walk through a park.

My romper is from Express and it was a new addition to my wardrobe since I picked it out for a bride’s maid dress. I decided to pair this romper with my flannel cardigan from Khols to make it more casual. My black and white Vans completed the entire outfit by complimenting the flannel cardigan and the romper since royal blue and black just simply just go together.

Here’s to last days of summer–hope you’re all enjoying the warm days that left. 🙂

Chilly Morning at The Cloisters

After two long weeks of final projects and exams for graduate school, it was nice to finally take a stroll through another New York City site–The Cloisters!

Chilly Morning at The Cloisters - Summer 2017

The Cloisters, if you’ve never been, is definitely a unique experience. I found the architecture of the museum completely mesmerizing. It is located on top of a hill in Fort Tryon Park, so I wanted to be comfortable walking around the museum as well as through the park.

I decided to rock my lounge pants that are pretty much a staple for me during transitional weather. This was a chilly morning on an overcast day, so it seemed like the perfect day to wear them. Lounge pants, in my own opinion, are the perfect kinds of pants. They are loose fitting, flexible and comfortable–plus can be worn in numerous ways!

My navy blue lounge pants are from Uniqlo, which I paired with a beige Airism tank top also from Uniqlo– (not sponsored by the way—I just really like their clothes). I went with a pair of women’s loafers that are perfect for walking and added a bit of texture to my outfit as well as a clutch from Madison West. Both those items were purchased at DSW.

Of course for some added comfort and warmth, I wrapped it all up in a cozy knitted grey and white sweater from Target. The added layer made a great difference when walking through the park.

Now that the semester is over, the last couple of weeks of August feels infinite. Hopefully, I can make couple more posts before the semester starts up again. We’ll see. Thank you for visiting and I hoped you were inspired! Till our next adventure! 🙂

Casual Wear for a Warm NYC Day

After cleaning out my wardrobe last weekend, I realized that I had a few t-shirts that I wanted to keep purely for the design. So, I decided to revamp a couple to wear on casual day trips around the city–like to American Museum of Natural History! (Also known as the best place on Earth :D).

I recycled this particular t-shirt to create a thin strap racerback tank top, which is perfect to wear with a bandeau, a lace bralette or over a bikini as a beach coverup! During the summer time, loose fitting pieces are usually my go to, especially on humid sticky days.

My casual outfit for today consists of my favorite light-wash denim shorts from Kohl’s, a now racerback tank top of a band that I just love (Andrew Jackson Jihad) and a pink lace bandeau from Aerie by American Eagle. My shoes are slip-on sneakers from Vans but I purchased them at DSW.

I cannot take any credit for the design though. I did a lot of research on Youtube looking at different ideas that previous people have done when I came across The Sorry Girls’ channel. This is the link to their DIY video to create this exact thin strap racerback from an old t-shirt (DIY T-SHIRT TO RACERBACK).

Have an awesome rest of the week. Thank you for stopping by and for checking out this week’s outfit and adventure. 🙂

Till next time!

 

South Street Seaport Glow

Summer is finally here!! What better way to spend a warm day this weekend then at South Street Seaport.

South Street Seaport Glow- Summer 2017

Summer to me means dresses! A fun, colorful dress is my top choice on warm or hot days and is a staple of my summer wardrobe. There are many variations and styles of dresses out there that you cannot go wrong.

I decided to take my maxi strapless dress from winter retirement back out in the sun for the first time today! Maxi dresses are usually my top pick because it is so easy to just slip on that combine comfort and trendy. Plus, their thin fabric and loose fitting style are perfect for those hot, humid, sticky days of summer.

I bought my maxi dress on sale a couple of summers ago at an independent NYC store called Purdy Girl. The bohemian pattern of the dress is what really caught my eye. I love the blend of deep green and maroon that just screams summer–plus it’s strapless–perfect for sunbathing. Haha. 🙂

Till next weekend’s adventure!

A Sunny Central Park Day

What an amazing Saturday! The sun was shining and the temperature was just wonderful! A perfect day for a walk through New York City’s most iconic park–Central Park!

A Sunny Central Park Day - Spring 2017

I love white lace and jeans. The combination of those two delivers a soft girl-next-door look perfect for a walk through the park.  My aim was to stay soft and unrestricted, especially since I already planned on climbing rocks and lamposts. The floral lace top did only deliver in look but also help beat the heat by allowing the cool breeze to reach my body.

The light wash denim shorts are from Kohl’s along with the navy blue weave belt. Both items have made a previous appearance during another walk. I just love how well they fit together, so of course, why not try it again? The floral lace crop top is a new addition from Hollister. It is not a very showy crop top since the lace does extend down past the belly button which is one of the main reasons I bought it. Crops tops are bold pieces however this particular crop top is softer and a great transition for bolder ones when the temperatures really skyrocket.  As for my sandals, I am not sure where those are from. I have had them in my closet since senior year of high school. If I had to guess, they were probably thrifted by my mom and given to me because they didn’t fit her feet.

A Sunny Central Park Day -  Spring 2017

Central Park was amazing though, but I will admit very crowded.  So many wedding photos, and picnics! Plus a lot of painted turtles sunbathing. I guess we all had the same idea of how to enjoy a beautiful day. 🙂

Of course, I have to slip in some yoga poses in there, you know like every yogi. Haha. I guess I was just really excited to be out and about. Mind you I still have three different assignments due for graduate school next week. But you know fresh air is kinda necessary, right?

A Sunny Central Park Day -  Spring 2017

Here’s to another park adventure! Soon it will be summer and off we will be having some beach adventures!

Till next time!

Casual Movie Sunday

What better way to spend an overcast Sunday than at the movies? Well, that is exactly what friends and I did today. Can you guess which movie?

Casual Movie Sunday -Spring 2017

Haha, that’s my most fiercest Wonder Woman pose. (Still working on the fierceness.)

I decided to keep it casual today with colors that represented none other than Wonder Woman. Gold, red, and blue are complimentary colors and also the main colors on Wonder Woman’s costume.

Casual Movie Sunday -Spring 2017

I paired a deep red sleeveless shirt from H&M over a navy blue tank top from Uniqlo. The jeggings, from Abercombie & Fitch, added the casual feel to the outfit and kept the blue undertone going. The golden earrings from Clarie’s were my central piece that brought the whole outfit together. As for my shoes, of course, I went with my golden flats from DSW once more. (I might need to buy new shoes.)

Casual Movie Sunday -Spring 2017

Though my outfit was very casual and simple this weekend, I had a lot of fun creating it. Hopefully the nicer the weather gets the more experimental I can be with my outfits. I rebuild my wardrobe with many pieces, which I am excited to try out this summer. 🙂

Hope y’all had a wonderful weekend and as always–till next time!

 

Windy Day Adventure

The weekends just keep on getting better. Sunday ‘s temperature in the afternoon was wonderful despite the wind.

Windy Day Adventure - Spring 2017

I am in graduate school, so Sundays are usually my homework days but I couldn’t resist the suggestion to walk through High Bridge Park. I had only been there once before, during the winter. Of course, I needed to see it again under better conditions plus taking a mental break from school work is definitely beneficial.

Windy Day Adventure - Spring 2017My pairing for this stroll was simple yet comfortable. I paired a light-wash denim shorts and a thin white peasant blouse. Both pieces just blend together creating the perfect outfit that will keep you cool and comfortable through a windy and warm walk. My blouse is very long and wide, so I tucked the shirt in and added a darker belt to not just keep my shorts up but also to add a contrasting tone to make the top and bottom pop out.  For my shoes, I decided to sport my gold flats once more to keep the overall look soft.

Windy Day Adventure - Spring 2017The blouse is an old timer piece from H&M that has been in my closet for years as well as my gold flats from DSW and navy blue belt from Kohls. My shorts, on the other hand, are a new addition! I bought them two weekends ago at Kohls, and this weekend was their first time out!

Windy Day Adventure - Spring 2017

Hope everyone has had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Here’s to more weekend adventures to come.

Till next time! 🙂
