I'm back!!! An entire season may have passed (ehem, Fall), but I'm still here and more in love with "the art of style" now than ever. Now in the midst of winter, I've slowly acquired a knack for the "art of layering". Which is something I was honestly dreading with my first NYC winter. This outfit is one of my go-to layering looks: a t-shirt dress layered over pants. Add a leather jacket, a beanie, and a sleek pair of heels and I'm ready to face the temps in style!

Basic B

Some days ya just gotta be "basic." With a company like Brandy Melville, known for their affordable and comfortable basic pieces, these kind of days run a lot smoother. I acquired this white, heavy-weight cotton, baby doll dress in early summer. So far its been a great basic piece, offering endless ways to dress it up or down. I even own it in black! With my recent move to NYC it's been an ideal garment for my new, "on the go" life style, getting me from A to B while still looking like I put in some effort.

It feels as if I've been on "the hunt" for the perfect pair of overalls all summer. However, I am always up for a challenge, so when I found this pair of OshKosh ankle length overalls in my mother's closet I knew a DIY was in order. After one bucket of bleach and a quick trim- I finally had the overalls of my dreams for the price of FREE! I can't wait to transition these into my fall wardrobe and pair them with pastel chunky knit sweaters and some mules.

So this past year I've been telling myself it's time to stop shopping at forever 21 and start investing a little more in my wardrobe. However sometimes I just can't resist a fast fashion fix. Which is how I happened to stumble-upon this little on trend tie dye number. Styled for a night out with my glass pendant, simple sandals, ASOS sunnies, and a black envelope clutch.

Like I've said before I am all about any chance I can get to wear my high wasted denim shorts! Which pair perfectly with one of my summer favorites, a sheer floral print kimono I got from the juniors section in Marshalls a while back. Easily paired with a black fitted crop top, my snake and tan Sam Edleman sandals, and a gold horn pendant....and simple dressing takes the cake again. I should probably start pushing myself to get more creative with my wardrobe again , but with a recent lack of time lately I've been leaning towards my easily paired pieces.

There are two things that are always ideal with clothing items for me, one that they are black and two that they are cotton. Comfort and versatility makes for effortless dressing and I'm all down for an outfit that looks just as good as it feels. So here's to you cotton and my favorite color that will never really be a  color.
