Girls Night Out: Great Gatsby Party

Yesterday I engaged in a bit of time traveling to the 1920s. I got excited about the Great Gatsby Party when I first heard about it back in September and enlisted my friend K. to attend with me. The event did not disappoint. Held at the Capitale in Lower Manhattan, we were ushered into a spectacular night of glitz, glam, and 1920s style. The night consisted of dancing, live performances and even a mannequin challenge.

I love the atmosphere in NYC during this time of year. Not only are the holidays exciting but so are the events like this party.

Wish List: Fall Work Style

I created a Fall Work Style wish list. Fall is one of my favorite seasons for style. There are so many options for stylish coats, boots, scarves and  bags plus the weather is not yet so frigid that you don’t want to leave your house. This Fall, I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of ankle boots for everyday wear. I like the heel height on these Michael Kors boots, because while you get the added benefit of heels, you can easily wear them on a daily basis without compromising comfort. The camel coat is an “it” item this Fall and this  Opening Ceremony coat perfectly combines quality, style and affordability.  I really appreciate the look of a sweater skirt and tights. I can see myself pairing the Grace Elements skirt with a pair of tights and the ankle boots.  What are some items that you want for Fall?  

 

 

Fall Work Style – Patterned Pants

I’ve had these pants for awhile now and they are one of my favorite fun pieces to wear to work. Sometimes, my work outfits can begin to feel like a uniform and I love that patterned pants and skirts help me add a personal touch of flair to my outfits. I still don’t have the mixing patterns and prints fully down (I’m working on it) so I usually pair my patterns and prints with a solid, like the black blazer I’m wearing and this silk blouse from Madewell. Isn’t that green the perfect Fall color? When it comes to pants for work, I prefer a straight-leg cut. They help me achieve that clean-line proportion that I like for my work outfit. Along with the patterned pants I added a beautiful statement necklace that I snagged on Ebay a few months ago, and a bracelet, which is another Ebay find to take my work look up a notch.I’m planning to add a few more patterned pants to my closet this Fall and Winter. See some of the styles I’m looking at below.
