Day to day I love my black-on-black looks, but I try to make it interesting with shapes and textures. You guys know this. My style is classic with a little boho here, a little girly there, and a little edgy all around—showcased below with a flowy silk shirt, edgy sneakers, and the most bohemian fringed-out handbag.

 Anthropologie top, J.Crew Pixie pants, Shoedazzle mules, Wessley NYC handbag

It only makes sense to pair a perforated top with perforated shoes. Right?

neutrals with a kick

 Ann Taylor top, Madewell cardigan, G-Star Raw denim, Bucketfeet sneakers

I wore this look with nude flats during the work day, but felt like kicking it up a notch out in the streets. These printed sneakers by Bucketfeet added the perfect flair to a basic look. You can use code ZIPPED25 for 25% off the entire site, so start shopping!

grunge girl

 Vans Girls vest, Madewell dress, Wessley NYC bag, Sam Edelman sneakers

Last week, I had one of those days where there is literally not enough coffee in the world to help get me functioning and well-dressed in the morning. I ended up in a dress (WHAT) made out of sweatshirt material (well, okay), but I toughened it up a bit with black leather accents and a cutoff vest. Plus, I got to meet up with Lindsey for pizza later that day, so all's well that ended well, right?

elegant basics

 Kisa Boutique jumpsuit and necklace, JustFab flats

I don't get dressed up often (just to give you an idea, leopard flats are my idea of fancy shoes), but when I do, I go for casual elegance rather than sparkle and shimmer. This one-shouldered jumpsuit by Kisa Boutique is the perfect piece for a summer night downtown, paired with my favorite dirty-hair-hiding-trick: the half bun.

nyfw inspiration

I'm not a girl who has an endless budget to snag all new outfits before New York Fashion Week comes along. I'll be headed to the shows next month in the city, but will be traveling mostly with pieces I already own. Hopefully, this little inspiration board I put together will stir some creativity into my outfit planning.

OK, quilted Chanel bag is far off dream, but let's just leave it at "taupe crossbody."

As usual, a lot of black and white, but I'm trying to fancy it up or add a little "cutting edge" to the look. I might even pack a skirt or two if I'm feeling crazy. Although the models will be trekking down the runway in spring trends, I will be sticking to what works for me: comfortable neutrals. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
