Orange Crush :: maxi dress + moto jacket

Sunday, October 11, 2015

Give your fall ensemble a pop of bold color with a fun, sporty outerwear piece that speaks to the autumnal mood of the season. 
I picked up this Zara moto jacket during their blowout summer sale and although it was a bit of an impulse buy, I'm so happy I went for it. I love this shade of orange and I think it's a bit unexpected for a moto style, which makes this piece interesting and unique. I'm always on the lookout for items that add loads of personality to whatever I'm wearing and this guy definitely fits the bill. 
My gray t-shirt dress is hands down one of the comfiest pieces I own. It's casual but can easily be dressed up a bit if need be. It's an easy option when I'm in a pinch and it's such a fun blank canvas to accessorize with. 
My favorite feature of this piece? The killer slit! Bonus - it shows off my booties really well! 
I was way too excited when I finally got this bag from Ann Taylor. With its fringe tassle and rich pebbled finish it's a must-have for fall and beyond. It also converts into a clutch with its handy detachable strap! 
Speaking of pieces with personality... This necklace caught my eye immediately. I love wearing it with neutral clothing because it adds so much polish and sophistication to a simple look. 
This cozy headband is the perfect hairpiece for bad hair days. It's a chic way to contain my flyaways!

These photos were taken in front of my apartment. I love the energy in our neighborhood and lately we've been taking more and more photos right down the street or literally right in front of our stoop. I wore this outfit while exploring the Upper Eastside and heading out to a restaurant with friends later in the evening. This look is a great example of how outerwear is the perfect way to effortlessly add some flair and color to your ensemble!

  22. Incredible look! I love bold pops of color. It's interesting to note that even though it was a summer sale the neon orange actually fits the fall season now! Wish I owned a jacket that shade.
