Velvet Ankle Boots

Happy Tuesday! I am here to introduce to you one of falls biggest trends in the world of shoes– velvet. I have such a special place in my heart for this smooth luxurious fabric. As a kid, I always remember wearing my favorite pair of velvet wide leg pants, my little velvet ballet flats and how could I forget the oversized black velvet bow that I wore in my hair constantly (I thank my mom for that)! It always made me feel so special and dressed up and to this day, it gives me that same feeling.

Whether it’s a velvet bow, or in this case a velvety ankle boot, the velvet accessory is already proving to be this seasons closet staple. I found these soft velvet ankle boots at Club Monaco over the weekend and I fell in love with the deep navy blue color. They are unlike any of the boots that I had previously been looking for online! The matte blue velvet gives an effortless feel, while still speaking to the show stopping velvet trend. I am sure that I will be getting some definite use out of this style and color this Fall!

I hope you enjoyed this post! This post just reminds me of how much I love fall and winter dressing. I can’t wait for the light layers and finding some new velvet accessories!

Love,
Liv xx

Taking a break from distressed denim and stepping back into something a bit more elevated today. These classic white pants have been a staple in my wardrobe for a while now. I snagged this ruffley flutter-sleeve sweater from the Urban Outfitters sale last week, and I had every intention of pairing these two pieces together. You know that satisfying feeling of once envisioning two pieces working so well together, and then finally paring them up and having it look even better than expected? That was me with this look. It’s always nice to get dressed up and leave the t-shirts and ripped denim at home. Helloooo refreshing white trousers and not so ordinary short sleeve knit.

I love the cropped fit of the sweater, with the wide leg pants! The movement of these Nicole Miller pants, just gets me every time. Other ideas or pairings for this top…high waisted, wide legged denim or black denim. A flirty knit with sleek denim…yea that works.

Have a great Wednesday guys! xx

Happy Tuesday! Hope you guys are having a great week so far. I’m excited to share this look that we shot in Soho last week, right before the heat wave hit NYC. If you aren’t in NY and haven’t experienced the heat, let me tell you….its on a new level. It feels like your walking around in dessert heat! It seems like its dying down today, which means that I can get back to wearing lighter denim, like my new favorite A Gold E pair that I picked up a couple of weeks ago. I am starting to curate different pieces for fall and I am specifically looking at denim for fall.

Cropped flares are definitely at the top of my list for one of the must have styles to have for his upcoming season – along with raw hems & high-rise fits. Flared denim is back and better than ever. The cropped fit comes with a variety of benefits, like being able to show off your cute shoes and being very figure flattering. I recommend finding a pair that hits right above the ankle for this particular style of denim, because it helps to create a longer look. This pair of A Gold E denim combines the cropped flared silhouette with the distressed hem and high-rise fit – which I absolutely love. The cropped flared style tend to be high rise as well, so I decided to knot my button down to break up the look and show off the styles figure flattering waist. I chose to accessorize with my favorite Mango block heel and my new weaved saddle cross body bag from Deux Lux! Thank you Dex Lux for sending me this gorgeous handbag! I absolutely love the color of the light brown suede is so versatile.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I can’t believe the summer is almost over, but I’m going to try and make the most of the rest of August! Do you guys have any fun last minute summer plans?

Love,

Liv xx

To me, everything about this top is perfect….the flowing white chiffon, the crochet and lace at the neckline, but the real show stopper are those angelic bell sleeves!!! I mean look at them, aren’t you just as in love as I am? This gorgeous top, along with this slit maxi skirt, were items I recently purchased on Nasty Gal. NastyGal.com is always one of my go-to online shopping destinations, because I can find really unique pieces at affordable prices.

I really love mixture patterns and textures, because it is a great way to add variety to your looks, while offering a hint of depth to the overall outfit. The print of the skirt compliments the print/texture of the crochet and lace detailing on the tops sleeves and neckline. The patterns work together, rather than fight against each other, which is an important aspect to keep in mind when playing with different prints. If I want to go more casual and make the top the main focal point of the look, a simple pair of cut-off jean shorts and white sneakers would be a really cute summer day look! The top is fun, flirty and will bring out your summer glow (white + sun kissed skin = magic haha)! I really hope you enjoyed this look and I wish you all a very happy weekend!!

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Last month I was so fortunate to visit the Nicole Miller showroom to take a look at their new Resort 2016 Collection (which I am absolutely obsessed with!) I also had the opportunity to pull some pieces from different collections, to create some summer content for you guys!

While in the Nicole Miller NYC showroom, I fell in love with this Bali Cold Shoulder Schuler Blouse at first sight. The beautiful pops of color, the unique paisley print and the off-the-shoulder draped bell sleeves gave me such an effortlessly modern boho feel. What I love so much about this top, and many of Nicole Miller’s tops, are their versatility. I styled this top with a simple pair of Lou & Grey white linen shorts, but a pair of denim shorts would also be perfect for a daytime look. I could easily transition this top into an evening look with a high-rise pair of denim or even a flowing white skirt. The ultimate goal is to have pieces in your closet where you can create multiple outfits from just one piece, and this Nicole Miller blouse is definitely one of those key pieces to have in your wardrobe. The perfect print, off-the-shoulder detailing and a beautiful neckline to show off that summer glow? I have a feeling this is going to be a pretty popular piece in my summer closet…

Love,

Liv xx

Classic Combo – Nicole Miller

There isn’t a better combination than a silky white button down and a pair of great fitting denim. Today, I’m changing things up and adding an elevated twist to this classic combo.

The cold shoulder trend is here to stay and Nicole Miller has created the perfect white blouse that features this ultimate summer trend. Their modern take on a classic silhouette is simply gorgeous, to say the least. This Trim Silk Cold Shoulder Top is cool, classic and could easily fit just about any personal style. The trim detailing creates a dressier feel, while the flouncy un-even hem adds a touch of playfulness and allows the piece to work casually as well. I’m not one for tucking in, as it can sometimes create a really “buttoned up” and stiff look. So, the uneven silhouette is an effortless dream for me…and it shows a little bit of skin, which I love during the summer!

I am always on the hunt for unique, yet wearable denim pieces that I can easily incorporate into my denim arsenal. Your denim drawer can always use a refresh. Right? What I’ve been loving for denim recently are a raw hem, undone hem, and especially a frayed hem! These 3×1 Fringe Jeans have made there way into my life and I could not be more thrilled. The fit, wash and added fringe detail adds a subtle and interesting statement, to yet another classic piece. The undone or fringed hem is another trend that I think everyone should try. The only problem is, once you start, you might not be able to stop….take it from me haha!

I always enjoy taking classic pairings and finding ways to spice them up! Don’t get me wrong – a simple white button down and a pair of denim is one of the greatest parings ever created. But if you’re looking for versions of these wardrobe essentials that will really stand out…I have the answer to your search!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and I wish you a very happy Friday!

Love, Liv
