Polka Dots on a Stoop

Cozy fall weekends are the best. I love flowy silhouettes (it’s the hippie in me) and snuggly layers. I absolutely adore this maxi dress by PLY. They are a really great local designer duo out of NYC, and they’re a great couple. It’s from Hey Gorgeous!, of course. I styled it up my way, pretty boho- with a big blanket scarf, my go-to denim jacket, and a floppy felt hat.

We shot this look on a stoop a couple of doors down from me, one whose ivy I’ve admired for a while. I love the stoops of the brownstones in my neighborhood.

I usually am not much of a drop-waist girl but I love this dress. The tea-length fit, the print, the way it lays, the feel. Paired with tights, I will wear this into the winter. It even is a great lay-around-the-house outfit!

This blanket scarf is big and so cozy- it will be fantastic into the cold depths of NYC winter. But the little fuzzies on the scarf get absolutely everywhere. Including all over Joe’s coat. Sorry Joe!

This look felt so me. Comfortable. Cozy. Great for a fall afternoon spent getting late brunch then scrolling the internet looking for Halloween costume inspiration.

Brooklyn Girl

Here goes my first outfit on my new blog.

I am a Brooklyn girl now, I moved from Manhattan in May after graduating from NYU. I love my new neighborhood. It’s just beautiful- lots of great brownstones and amazing tree-lined streets.

My rooftop is pretty spectacular as well- great views and great vibes. There is something special about it at sunset that you just don’t get to see from street-level. I asked my boyfriend to snap some shots of me at sunset on the roof. These rooftop sunsets are golden and dreamy.

IMG_1707Smart cut outs but a flowy silhouette make for a subtly sexy but still extremely comfortable dress. I am lovin it.

IMG_1709I paired it with booties and a military green light jacket to dress it down a bit. The lighting in this image makes the color of the dress so vibrant.

I wore a strapless bra with this dress, because, ya just gotta on this one. Besides the bra, the outfit was really comfortable. I am headed to Vegas this week (!!) and am so excited to bring this dress with me. With some flashy jewels and heels, this dress will so fun in Vegas.

Oh and Joe wants me to order seamless.
