A little about me… I’m a lover of prints, dogs, and ice cream (year round, please!). My favorite colors are red, white, blue, and leopard, and I will just about never sacrifice comfort for style. I live in Manhattan, and my days (and nights) are packed thanks to the three full time jobs I’m constantly juggling: founder of Megababe Beauty, blogger behind The 12ish Style, and dogager to my insta-famous pup, @toastmeetsworld. I love to work, and yes, I know that’s unusual!
Some days I have more outfit changes than Beyoncé, while other days I somehow manage to wear the same thing from morning to night. The only constant in my life is that every day is different and I’m almost always on the go. My style is casual and sporty with just enough polish — I would always rather show up underdressed than overdressed (sorry, Mom!).
Here’s what I wore this past week (yes, it includes a healthy dose of athleisure) and why I love it all!
Talk about adventures in layering… and pattern mixing! I’m trying a puffy vest over a Pendleton coat that I’ve had forever and am into it?! My Tory Sport wide leg track pants from last season are a wardrobe staple, as is my striped Iro sweater. Clearly someone loves stripes…
I don’t wear all black too often, but when I do, I make sure to mix up the textures. I love a good pair of faux leather leggings, like these from my capsule collection with Eloquii. Wearing black yoga tights as actual pants is a real pet peeve of mine, which is ironic given my love for athleisure… I just think faux leather leggings are so much cuter and just as comfy!
Further proof I love athleisure (and red, blue and white). For a casual look, you can’t beat a cute bomber worn with bright leggings. A shredded sweatshirt makes no sense to dads everywhere but I love it! And don’t get me started on my Reebok pumps — they are the best sneakers ever.
After getting the week off to a pretty casual start, it was time to pull it together for a lunch meeting. You should know I’m not afraid to drape myself in camel! This look is all about the accessories — my Fendi face tote and brocade booties keep things from getting too serious.
I’m a big fan of bodysuits, caftans, and leopard so I thought why not really live life on a Friday and put them all together? Also I love figuring out ways to wear summer clothes during non-summer. Glitter booties are the icing on today’s outfit cake and the perfect way to end the week!
