Real Life Style #20 – Annie Griffin Giveaway!

Ahhhh Fall is in the air! And the cooler temps call for a little wardrobe change up! We’re back to jeans and blazers people! {who’s excited?!} Also big for fall – forest green. Which is why I was thrilled to find this tunic top by Annie Griffin. Usually I am not a tunic type girl, but something about this one just called to me!
This is a very straight forward look… I may mix it up a little the next time I wear it, maybe trow on a belt, or tuck it into my high-waisted jeans…

Now onto the BIG news – the sweet gals at Annie Griffin have offered to give away to the top to one of you dear readers! All you have to do is take a gander at their site and then leave a comment below letting me know which of their pieces you like best! {I’ll pick a random winner next Thursday – so enter by midnight on Wednesday the 19th!}

Real Life Style #19 : Fearless Fashion

I’ve had a crush on neon orange for a while now {remember this? and this?} Well – imagine my glee when a pair of neon pumps by Two Lips arrived at my door, along with a little challenge: to participate in the Fearless Fashion campaign sponsered by Cosmo and Palladium.
Sooo – I took a chance and styled up the neon pumps… what do you think??

A Real Life Style Peek (with Downy!)

Went to a fun event on Tuesday where I got to learn all about the science behind the scent of laundry detergent. I know you think I’m joking – I’m not….

The cocktails were honey flavored {errr-infused…} just like Downy’s Honey Flower detergent. Which I got a bottle of – I’m pretty sure that means I’m going to crave a drink everything I wash my clothes now, which I guess isn’t really a problem huh?

What I’m wearing: H&M Blazer, ASOS Dress, H&M Necklace

Real Life Style #18

The other day I had this brilliant idea that I should do an outfit post featuring my dogs. Seems like a fun plan, right? Turns out the puppies are not the best models, they thought I was treating them to an awesome play-date. But it was still a lovely day on the river. The perfect occasion for a chambray shirt and some sun stripes…

Real Life Style #17 – Shorts!

It was a blustery, but sunny, spring day. The perfect sort of day for the denim cutoffs to make their seasonal debut. Paired with a playful dotty blouse, a boating themed belt scored years ago at a rummage sale {we can call that vintage, yes?} and my favorite pair of leopard print loafers and the shorts feel dressed up just enough for skipping around New York in the Spring…

Real Life Style #16 – Copycat

I have a new designer crush. Orla Kiely.

Now – to be fair – I’ve know about Orla Kiely for a while {I’m a long time fan of her prints…} but I’ve only recently discovered her gorgeous ready-to-wear line.

We got a good look at the full collection at IFB’s UltraBookStyle event – drool. And, it turns out a few of my very favorite stylish ladies are Orla fans as well. So imagine my glee when I got my hands on her Cruise 2012 Shirt Dress {the very same Keira Knightly wore at the Venice Film Festival} Normally I wouldn’t condone copycatting {copy-kateing?} someone’s style this directly. But really – when you’re dealing with perfection what more can you do?

Real Life Style #15

I feel like I have to act super serious and sophisticated when I wear this. It’s great for wandering museums and pondering life… Happy Spring!

Real Life Style #14: Red-y for Spring!!

Guess what guys? The world is starting to feel downright springy! I know, I know, we still have a week or so before it is technically Spring, but when it’s warm enough to wear dresses without tights in NYC – Spring has sprung in my book. So, who’s ready to chic-it-up spring style with a classic LBD and a bright red blazer? Oh… that’s right, me!

Real Life Style – #12: NEON!

After lusting over them all last week {and, ok, the week before that too…} I finally bought myself a pair of neon jeans. I’m absolutely in love with them – I could probably wear them every day. {In fact – check out how else I styled them over on Eat, Sleep, Denim!} I still don’t have combat boots… but I do love this look…
