Classic Combo

Taking it back a few weeks, but I wore this outfit during NYFW for a brunch with Design Darling. (You can see Hallie’s recap post here & Mackenzie’s recap here!) It was the cutest brunch atop the Gramercy Park Hotel with a group of fabulous ladies. A much-needed few hours of relaxation during the NYFW craziness. :)

PS: The winners for the Rivet & Sway giveaway were announced here!

If you’re not familiar with Design Darling, they carry the preppiest and most cheerful selection of accessories, home decor, paper products, and more! Here are some of my favorites currently in the shop… Straw Tote | Monogram Mug | Gold Striped Notebook | Hustle Print (I have this on my desk!) | Zebra Tray | Notepad (also have this!)

By Malene Birger Leopard Coat (similar) | April Marin Dress | J.Crew Tights | Tommy Hilfiger Bow Pumps (similar splurge, similar save) | 3.1 Phillip Lim Bag | Karen Walker Sunglasses | Michael Kors Watch

    The way the touch of gold in your shoes plays with the tiny bit of gold in your shoes is such beautiful coordination. Love it!
