New York Baby :: wrap skirt + chambray + fedora

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Sending warm wishes from The Big Apple in a playful combo of chambray, tribal print, and of course my fedora.  
Here I am again, showing this fabulous tribal, wrap skirt from Loft some love for the nth time this summer. What can I say? When I truly fall for a piece, I just can't get enough! Checkout another look featuring this skirt here
My Tiffany & Co. Love necklace was the finishing touch on this look. I think it completes the outfit perfectly - something dainty yet impactful. 
You know I couldn't style the first NYC post of the summer without my Frank Sinatra fedora. Here's my logic: whenever I think "fedora" I think of Sinatra, which leads me to think of New York because duh, New York, New York is only the most iconic song about NYC ever written! What do you think? Am I doing Ol' Blue Eyes proud? 
To add some summertime edge and freshness to my looks lately, I've been super into tying and cropping my button-down blouses. This trend looks fantastic paired with skirts (of the longer variety, please) and a bold sassy lip. Need some tips on how to get the perfect knot? Watch this Refinery29 tutorial
Loving these chic VC Signature sandals this summer. The chunky wood heel has a so-now 70s feel. Speaking of which, I also love these
As a parting gift as I left Chicago for New York, my mom gave me these John Hardy earrings. They've been an absolute staple for me here in the city. I love their elegant feel and how they're just as neutral as a simple diamond stud but much more stylish and extraordinary. 
How awesome is this mural? My new NYC photographer, Virginia, spotted it as we were wrapping up our shoot. Checkout Virginia's awesome photo blog here. She has such an eye for photography!  
[top: Forever21, skirt: Loft, heels: Vince Camuto Signature Collection (also loves these), fedora: Urban Outfitters (this one's also great), necklace: Tiffany & Co., watch: Marc Jacobs, amethyst bangle: David Yurman, crystal bangle: Ann Taylor, earrings: John Hardy, heart bracelet: Tiffany & Co.]

This setting look familiar? You may remember it here from when Brooke and I took pictures last summer in NYC. How weird to think that now, a year later, I'm back in New York - this time for good. 

I thought it would only be appropriate to do my first "Back in New York City" post in one of my all-time favorite NY spots - The High Line in Chelsea. I love The High Line for so many reasons, one of them being it's always a great spot for photos (expect to see it featured on my blog again) and it never disappoints. Due to the perfect harmony between jungle and urban, these photos have a really sweet vibe to them and offer a unique perspective on New York that I find myself drawn to again and again. 


  1. Oh wow, Kat, you're looking stunning! I love how this is such a throwback and ee, those earrings are so stunning; your mum has got exquisite taste! Loving the fedora-sinatra-NYC connection, too, haha!
