Into the Blue



Today has been a long and busy Monday.  I was up at 6:30, out the door by 7:00 and in Brooklyn for a Gilt Man shoot by 8:00.  (Sorry, but you will have to wait until next week to find out who the designer is!)

I chose to wear a classic black blazer and white t-shirt to keep my clothes simple and to keep the focus on the amazing men’s collection. The long and loosely tailored blazer creates a casual cut that is perfectly suited for day and, when coupled with a skinny jean, you have a flattering and balanced silhouette.

When you wear a minimal outfit like this, the star of the show becomes the accessories.  I wore a turquoise necklace to add a fun pop of color for spring and decorated my left wrist with a Michelle watch and three David Yurman cable bracelets.  Last, but certainly not least, I carried my favorite black Fendi bag for a sleek and professional feel.

Styling Tip: Wear a neutral shoe like this pair of Kelsi Dagger snakeskin heels to create an illusion of longer legs.
