By now you might know I love color – usually the more the better. But sometimes I do switch it up and take a more minimalistic approach to the hues I’m wearing. I’ve had this Express skirt for a while and it goes with everything. It is cut just right and has the perfect slit. I’m wearing it today with a tiger print tee from Zara. Accessorized with my vintage Louis Vuitton bag (I have the best aunt – she has an uncanny gift of finding things and is so generous), handmade tassel earrings, and a vintage choker which I wrapped around my wrist as a bracelet.

Regardless of what I’m wearing, it’s a safe bet that I will need to have a pop of color somewhere. Earlier in the day I was walking through NYC’s Little Italy and came across this tiny shop with the most amazing assortment of sunglasses. These purple lenses really caught my attention and I couldn’t resist. Got to love summer weather though! Literally moments after buying them, I was huddled under a restaurant’s awning in the midst of a torrential downpour. But then you know everything happens for a reason because by the time I got to the Intrepid, the rain had stopped and the lighting was surreal. Magic hour.
