lemon zest with a little Marant and IRO

A friend once equated returning to New York as a Breakfast at Tiffany’s kind of moment – you miss the sounds, the flow, even the smells at times. Coming home is an indescribable feeling. I like to dress up when I’m in New York, nothing too big, but also no sweats, or sweats on few and far between circumstances!

IRO Blazer 

I’m not a huge fan of color, shocking right! But, sometimes color is vital to adding a little something extra, so yesterday I took the plunge in a yellow blazer by IRO – I love this specific jacket right now, it’s at the top of favorite things. I have two other blazers by IRO, one is black and white, and the other has leather shoulder detail, but the color on this blazer was the perfect accent for yesterdays back to the city look. I didn’t have too many tees to choose from and I wanted a casual look so I gravitated to grabbing a patterned tee also by IRO and favorite R13 blue denim.

I threw on the blazer, accessorized with a fun, and delicate Isabel Marant necklace I received from a friend as a Christmas present, added a cozy scarf and finally the ACNE shearling which catches everyone’s eye. My final touches were a black PS1 and black Isabel Marant boots. The outfit was definitely reminiscent of a friend’s usual looks, fun, playful, with an oversized downtown edge, but I adored it and friends seemed to too. It was ideal for lunch at Candle Cafe, lots of errand running, and an intimate dinner with girlfriends at a local favorite, Toloache. Sometimes it’s the easiest looks that work the best.
