Polar Opposites

3.24.2013


Barney's Asymmetrical Leather jacket, Vintage faux-fur vest, Cynthia Rowley eyelet skirt (love this one too), Printed tank from La Di Da Dee (last seen here), Layered chain necklaces from Target and Banana Republic (similar here), Callie boots c/o 80%20, Ray Ban sunglasses, Louis Vuitton tote bag (borrowed from a SUPER generous friend). 




As the weather seems to be getting colder and colder with the onset of Spring (I mean, why are there still remnants of snow on the ground?), I must say that my attitude towards dressing is getting lazier and lazier. Black and white is becoming my go-to. It's the simplest palette to get dressed in, and a guaranteed way to stand out and look great without putting much thought to it.

I'm actually so sick of the cold that I'm about to head into Tribeca for a spa day with my boyfriend at Aire Ancient Baths. Soaking in hot pools of water and lounging in steam rooms? The perfect remedy to my current seasonal depression. Wish me luck!

  16. Love this combination of a summer white skirt with black. Weather makes dressing so tricky at the moment

  17. Good idea to introduce white in order to feel a bit more 'springy' but still be able to dress warm, it is exactly the same here in Sweden, just yesterday it was snowing and it is almost April...

  23. Are you wearing a fur vest over a leather jacket? If so, you are a genius! If not, that's one rad jacket and well, you're still a fashion genius!
