It’s Monday and I’m here with a 3 day challenge that I think will be fun. My previous post, on New Yorkers and fashion, have lead me to my latest challenge. I enjoy challenging myself to be a tad fashion forward and I admire the fearlessness of New York women and their fashion choices. So this week, I will dress based on each of the observations. Let’s recap so we all know what I’m in for.
– New York Women are Unafraid to Experiment
– Their wardrobe is a host of unique, one-of-a-kind pieces
– Fashion should be effortless
So with that being said, today I am attempting to be effortless in my fashion choice. Today we are experiencing some really cool temperatures. I don’t love the cold (50 degrees is cold for me!) but I love dressing for the cooler months. I’m kind of in love with this look and it was extremely comfortable to wear all day! The best part was that the stockings have the same chevron pattern as the dress! Subtle but noted! (still getting used to having my pic taken)
Already have tomorrow’s look ready. It’s going to be my Unafraid to Experiment Look. I’m a little nervous because it will be trés bold! Stay tuned.

It’s Wednesday and I’ve made it through three fairly painless days of heel-wearing to work. I honestly didn’t expect this to be quite so simple. (Which I am sure now means I will take a nice good tumble tomorrow!) I rebounded from my wedges yesterday and wore my go-to black heels from BCBG. I honestly do not know how long I have had these but I have worn them to numerous weddings, gallery openings and probably a holiday or two. They are my most comfortable pair of heels ever! In fact, when I had to do a few pick up shots today from yesterday’s photo shoot, I did not even care that I was going to walk around our studio setting up lights in them. I really do love the feeling I get when I walk around in my heels and I’m feeling less and less self conscious about making THE LOUDEST NOISE walking through our studio. It’s like ‘Hey! I’m walking around! In heels!’
I did not do you honor of taking a photo of myself today. My photographer is MIA for the evening but I’ll try and get one up tomorrow. I did photograph the shoes and put together a quick little graphic. I will say this, while I do love the heels, it is really hard for me to put them together with jeans. I know I need to get over that, it just feels like I’m dressed for the opera. (Or how I would dress for the opera) I felt like my trousers were so dressy with the heel that I toned it down with a basic Gap tank. I guarantee you, a year ago, I would have worn this with flip flops, which I still love cute flip flops paired with wide-legged trousers. I love the look of having no feet. Weird I know and this blog is therapy for that. Happy Wednesday

Can you say blah? My closet is full of grey clothing! Grey sweaters (2 almost identical pairs from the Gap), grey t-shirts, grey pants, grey thermal shirt, nail polish, flip flops and a grey wrap that I wore to my wedding where my bridesmaids wore grey dresses! Ugh! I need to get out of this grey slump and start seeing some color. I’m currently wearing one of my grey sweaters, but it’s my favorite! I need to search for a new or a couple new sweaters that will be my favorites this fall! Short and sweet today!
