Indian Summer

Julie zara pants Indian SummerJulie zara pants body shot1 Indian SummerThe weather in NYC has been unseasonably warm, which is pleasant to walk around it,  but scary at the same time for those of us worried about global warming. (like me) Nevertheless….it’s a great excuse to wear my favorite burgundy Balenciaga leather jacket. Similar HERE and HERE.  Pants are Zara. I love the leopard print on them. Get similar looks HERE and HERE. I have been wearing my Pamela Love Tribal necklace almost every day since I got it.(See post HERE)   It’s the perfect statement necklace, and it’s earthy and organic at the same time…..just my style. 😉 Check out Pamela Love’s other designs HERE.

P.S. Isn’t it strange how much it’s raining lately? During Winter? Shouldn’t it be snowing? Sigh….

What are you favorite looks this Winter?

I paired two of Fall’s biggest trends for a fresh look: metallics and burgundy.  I found this awesome metallic skirt at Minusey for a great price.  I think the skirt adds a great pop of color in this dark, dismal Fall weather!  My burgundy quilted Balenciaga jacket is still my favorite Fall piece, and the color is just amazing.  I shot these photos in Astoria where I live……LOVE this city!  All photos by the amazing Katharine Andriotis.

Here are some quick shots as I was running around the city today. 😉 Stopped by Barneys to see what was out for Fall, and also wanted to check out their new windows….THEY ARE GORGEOUS. I also met up with my friends Debbie and Sheree.  Burgundy is a HUGE color this season, so I was happy to finally be able to wear my burgundy Balenciaga quilted jacket.  (This was another huge investment buy.) When I saw the color I had to get it! I am actually seeing this color EVERYWHERE now. I will be doing a blog post soon on the best deals this season on bags, shoes, jackets and clothing in this deep rich color. Stay tuned for that! 😉 xoxo Julie

I love colored jeans!  One of the things I am looking forward to this Fall is being able to rock the trend of bright colored, printed, and textured jeans! My love of interesting jeans actually dates back to my childhood.  I remember when I was about 11 years old, my older cousins would come visit me, and they were all wearing jeans with either designs, painted pictures, or cool embroidery on them.  I was so jealous! As I got older, the idea of “printed jeans” wasn’t really in style anymore…….so plain jeans it was for me. 🙁  But now that the trend is back, and improved in my opinion, I am all over it!  It’s an easy way to elevate your outfit, and update your look!  We saw this trend being worn earlier this Spring and Summer, in the form of neon jeans, and tons of jeans with either flowers or warm weather designs on them.  But, for this Fall, the trend is jeans in more jewel toned colors, jeans with deep embroidery, (think your grandma’s drapes), and of course, jeans printed with tons of patterns. ( I recently scored a bunch of awesome jeans at Zara, stay tuned for future blog posts with those)  But yesterday, I kept it simple with my new favorite bright red jeans, on sale from SHOPBOP!  (Buy them HERE!!! ….and similar red jeans HERE, and HERE)  I kept the rest of my outfit black to offset the red.  My Celine Nano is my favorite cross body bag.  It’s great when you are on the go! (Similar cross body bags HERE, and HERE)  Oh, and my Rag & Bone Newbury boots are the best investment purchase I ever made! Seriously, they are the most comfortable ankle boots on the planet! Just read the reviews HERE to see that I  am not kidding!  What are you most looking forward to this Fall?

I love my red Celine Nano. It’s the perfect little bag that fits everything. I took it with me today while shopping with my best friend for her wedding.  We hit a few stores, including Zara…….( next post will show my finds!) I think that a red bag is essential in every wardrobe because it’s a bright color that adds zest,  but it’s also surprisingly neutral.   Red bags go with almost everything. Here are some other great choices for small red bags/clutches. This Loeffler Randall one is adorable, and I love this Rebecca Minkoff clutch, and this one as well. I also live in denim chambray shirts….so comfy and easy to pair with everything! I am wearing this awesome one from Forever 21.  This one is a good choice, and this one as well. Can’t wait for Fall!!!
