On Yellow

posted by on 2014.07.11, under Fashion, Outfit Of The Day, Outfits








Even though I’m writing to you from New York City, I can still feel the scorching heat from LA. Now that LA has been peaking 90+ degrees every day, I’ve been officially living in skirts and light pieces. Skirts like these are so versatile that wherever I go, whether it’s in NY or LA, I’m still prepared for the summer heat. I’ve always stayed away from this particular color combination, but I love how this Elizabeth & James black top mutes my bright yellow skirt (also from Elizabeth & James).

I’m really excited to announce that I’m now a contributor for ShopStyle! I know that when I was first traveled to a place I’d never been before like Hong Kong, it was hard to know what to pack. Knits or chiffon? Sandals or booties? That’s why it was really amazing to have gotten the chance to create curated looks to help prepare you guys for an amazing time while visiting an exotic place like Hong Kong! Definitely check it out here to get a sense of where you plan to go. I created styles for hitting the streets and for wining and dining in the city, I hope you find it helpful!

I love the juxtaposition of a midi skirt with a subtle crop top. Very lady-like but still modern!
