lincoln center.


photos by profeshstyle

asos coat (love
this similar style); h&m sweater, belt and skirt (try a metallic or red version); target tights (layered two pairs); forever 21 earrings; vintage, lowluv x erin wasson, and la dama rings; vintage bag (just like the PS1!); aldo boots; essie nail polish in fifth avenue; ELF lipstick in posh (my $1 go-to color!).
it was exactly one week ago when i wore this on my first full day in NYC during NYFW. i knew i'd be in a sea of either brightly colored or all black ensembles at the lincoln center, so i chose to do what i do best: neutrals. mixing different textures is the way i make my simple outfits more interesting. i live for no-fuss, effortless, and simple, so it's all in the details. a chunky knit, pleats, faux fur, leather...love them all, even more when they're paired together. the midi skirt is a fun break from my usual skinny jeans (wouldn't wear it any other way than high on my waist with a belt), and i toughened it up with the addition of my favorite black ankle boots, the aldo crisson. cannot say enough about these. they're comfortable and look just like the acne pistol boots that cost 7x as much as these do. the bag, oh this bag. i did a little dance inside when i saw it at a thrift store, as it's identical to the coveted PS1, and cost me, ohhh, $3. score. the coat has a hood that's perfect for when the wind picks up (seriously, i think i brought a little bit of chicago with me, what a windy day in NYC), and you guys have seen this old sweater on my blog before, most notably here.

my gracious and beautiful NYC host christina and i started off the day last saturday with brunch at the cutest little cafe in queens, LIC market, where we treated outselves to a delicious carb loaded meal (read: cranberry pecan french toast with a caramel banana glaze). we then headed to the lincoln center, where i took these photos, scoped out street style, chugged free diet pepsi, got yelled at by security for leaning against a glass-encased bajillion dollar necklace, had a star struck moment when kate lanphear looked me in the eye as she passed by after exiting a show, and finally met up with my long time internet friend and fellow blogger, the impossibly chic liz from late afternoon. cannot say enough good things about her :)




after a bit, christina asked me if i wanted to walk over to central park. as a first timer in NYC, the tourist in me couldn't pass this opportunity up. of course it was beautiful, just as i'd imagined, yet all i could think about is how it must be in the summertime, and immediately my mind starting thinking ahead and planning my next trip, to see it in all of its glory.

it kind of seems like i'm going backward in time, which i am, so to see what i wore on this saturday night, check out my last post here.
happy weekend!
