Weekend Lookbook for Wherever Life Takes You


For a Southern Inspired Dinner Outfit |

Last Friday, Jordan took me to Mistral for our anniversary.  I guess the style from Nashville left and impression because this look feels very Nashville-inspired to me-especially the oversized, long blazer and hat.

MFA Late Nite |

With the perfect mix of art lovers and alcohol, MFA Late Nites has easily become one of my favorite activities. The dress code varies from buttoned up to urban.  I decided to go for an elevated look and layer my off the shoulder top underneath my jumpsuit. I was  too busy enjoying art, so this mirror shot will have to suffice.

Wedding Brunch on the Water |

For when you want to be comfortable, yet chic at a post-wedding brunch. This outfit was a huge hit with everyone there and even though it was linen, the strapless culotte silhouette felt very refined.

Shopping At the Pru |

For when you need a mocktail after a long day of shopping.  The drink below is The Remedy from Earls Prudential, and let me tell you it is delicious. The waitress recommended it as a hangover cure.

I'm wearing my J.Crew Stadium Cloth Coat that's out of stock now, but a great staple for a winter.

New York |

For Exploring |

For riding the train and walking around the LES.  This layered look is perfect spring weather in the city.  The leather jacket gave the sweater dress a touch of edge and made it perfectly appropriate for daytime.

For Sunday Funday |

Relaxed, yet polished for Drag Brunch in the West Village.  The blouse and neckerchief elevate the look, and the sneakers keep it practical.  A relaxed white blouse is a necessary wardrobe staple because of how polished it looks and how versatile it is.  A blouse can dress up any look, and this is why I wear them so much.

For Accessory Lovers |

When you overpacked and have to wear all of your accessories.  This cheeky accessory shot shows that you can be a maximalist, and still look cute.  I tend to stray away from over accessorizing, but sometimes more than one statement piece can work together.

I LOVE these earrings, but unfortunately they are sold out on Anthro...and not made that well to be honest.  So I'm sharing alternative earrings that are similar to this style below.

For When You Want To Look the Part |

As someone who's traveled to Nashville a few times, I feel like I have a general idea of the style, a mixture of Brooklyn artist and country.  There's a lot of denim, leather, boots and hats.  So, wanting to fit in, I paired all of the above for my take on the style.

I wore this look for brunch at Mockingbird (you can see what I ate here) and for walking around 12 South (you can see what to wear here.).  The picture on the right is in the beaurifully decorated pop up bus of menswear brand Buck Mason.

I bought the Thanks Y'all shirt while in Nashville from local shop Project 615, shop it here.

For Rainy Days |

I tried my hand at another Nashville-inspired look with a relaxed shirt, and layered necklace.  I feel like I really channeled a look true to my sister's style...but that may be because I wore her top and necklace.

For a Spanish-Inspired Cinco |

I opted for a toned down Cinco look by pairing a ruffled one sleeve top with jeans and statement cactus earrings.  It felt festive, yet formal for dinner and a night out.  I wore this look to hip new restaurant, Geist in Germantown.
