The other weekend in New York was slightly chilly and rainy and I was going out to eat and just wanted to be comfy but still look presentable so I decided to share with you guys how I did it! I am sure I’m not the only one to do this but sometimes I will go into Bobby’s closet and dig out whatever looks and feels the comfiest and call it MY outfit of the day. Well Bobby is 6’3″ and I’m 5’4″ so his sweaters mostly fit like dresses for me.. isn’t that kind of a trend now? At the end of the day, I look cuter with it on so that’s what matters most 😉 Just kidding ( Because Bobby is totally reading this).

I find the “boyfriend sweater” style super time efficient when I get ready. I usually pull out this look when I know I don’t have enough time to get ready. Here’s the equation to it: Sweater (make sure it’s big enough but not like homeless kinda baggy) + shorts (basically just to cover your ass ) + heels ( just because I’m a shorty)

I’ve been trying to find a good quality and affordable leather backpack. I know that this is a fad and didn’t want to splurge on a very nice one… plus I don’t see myself as a backpack girl anyway. I was stumbling around Instagram and found Camelia – their bags are all made in Rome with Italian leather. Their craftsmanship is top notch and yet the prices are reasonable. I’m totally in love with my backpack and have been using it everyday. This has replaced my workout bag, because this looks super cute with my workout outfits and its so convenient when I’m carrying other things.

Oh! And these boots are from Tony Bianco- Australia. I didn’t realized there are so many up and coming designers in Australia! I love their Diddy Boots I actually got two pairs in different colors 😉 Heads up: they fit 1/2 size smaller than your normal shoe size

Raindrops, Crop Top

Have you guys ever seen any of the Underworld movies? I didn’t know what it was but Bobby forced me to watch it and I loved the way Kate Beckinsale dressed in it! (literally the only thing I remember about the movie haha) She wore these long black trench coats and the whole vibe seemed very New York and totally cool. Unfortunately, it was something most people would only wear on a Halloween type outing (I mean seriously when else could you wear a full leather outfit with a black trench coat, right??) so I decided to share with you guys how I would try and pull it off in a normal setting! (Well, NY normal, we love our black clothing)

I figured it would look best as more of a sporty outfit and a long coat like this calf hair trench is a great way to wear a crop-top outside of the gym when you would normally feel a bit naked (especially on the streets of New York!) I especially like it because you can quickly cover up when you walk past the creepy guys on the street. The leather joggers are a great way to dress up the crop top and dress down the coat which brings the whole outfit together, especially when you pair it with a pair of cool black booties like these Charlotte Olympia. I think one of the important aspects is if you are wearing leather, try not to have more than one piece have the same color or texture, in this outfit the jacket is mostly pony hair, the pants are leather and the boots are suede, but they still go together even though the are all black they are different enough that you don’t look like you are wearing a suit haha.

Lastly, I am so happy I got the chance to shoot with this Alexander McQueen umbrella! I’ve had my eye on it for a while. Bobby got it for me for Christmas but I have a habit of leaving my umbrella places so I was scared to use it for the first couple of months until I realized I would never let it out of my sight let alone leave it somewhere haha.
