Winter Kate kimono top and Patricia Nash bag (both at TJMaxx) / Gap tank / Levi’s shorts / CLO bra / DV by Dolce Vita sandals / vintage belt and earrings / Warby Parker sunnies / Gypsies & Debutantes friendship bracelet / Alex and Ani bangles / etc… watchband cuff / OPI nail color in “Mermaid’s Tears”
I finally got my Warby Parker sunnies in, which you voted on and chose for me (well done readers, well done!)—just in time for the gorgeous weather we finally had after what seemed like an eternity of rain here in NYC.
The best part about these sunnies is that they’re prescription, so I could finally see clearly all of the amazing views that Red Hook, Brooklyn had to offer this weekend. Not to mention, shielding my allergies at the amazing Chelsea Garden Center out there.
STYLIST TIP: Opt for nude shoes if you are self-conscious about your legs. This will create the illusion of longer gams. Dark flat shoes will make you appear shorter—especially if there is an ankle strap.

I’m very girly, according to my hubby.
True, but I do like to tone it down a bit with some menswear in my wardrobe. The most obvious way to add some menswear into your wardrobe is by borrowing your man’s shirt. I prefer to buy my own man’s shirt (it’s a woman’s world after-all).
It’s even easier now to rock some menswear in your wardrobe. It helps that hipster boys are wearing the same sizes we wear, so I can get a shirt like this inexpensive one from Urban Outfitters, without needing to alter it.
You can also dress like the boys, but with a feminine and edgy twist with pieces like these cool Sam Edelman loafers that I’ve been drooling over on endless.com or this men’s inspired watched in a not so manly rose gold color by Michael Kors.
The guys will be jealous.
STYLIST TIP: BALANCE YOUR MENSWEAR INSPIRED PIECE WITH MORE FITTED CLOTHING, AS WELL AS SOME MORE FEMININE ACCESSORIES.
THAT WAY, YOU WON’T BE MISTAKEN FOR DRESSING UP EARLY FOR HALLOWEEN AS TERRY FROM “JUST ONE OF THE GUYS.”
