Topshop boots :: House of Harlow sunglasses)

I love routing through your closet and finding a gem you haven't worn in ages. I last wore this jacket when I first bought it in Paris, and now looking back, I then also styled it with a POP of colour, seen here. The clash of colour within the jacket lends itself beautifully to be combined alongside a mix of other bright colours. It gives me a fuzzy feeling when colours, and items of clothing that shouldn't blend well, complete the perfect outfit. And for me this outfit does just that. 

Don't be afraid to mix bold colours and fabrics, because I find that no matter how much they clash, they in most circumstances will compliment each other. Here you can see how the pony-fur of the clutch helps the maroon suede of the boots POP!

Sincerely Jules tee :: Topshop Moto vest :: Free People jeans :: J. Crew bag ::
Betsey Johnson wedges :: Swatch watch

  I purchased these jeans last week, and still being available online here, 
I would urge you all to follow the link and start BUYING! 
They are affordable, comfy and look fab :)

So today comprised of my daily yoga class at Yoga to the People, smoothie making, a picnic with a view, and of course blogging. We walked to Williamsburg, where we had planned on have our picnic at the East River State Park and take my outfit photos for the blog. We found a really cool steel backdrop and decided it was perfect for the photos, but of course as Austin prepared to start snapping we realized I had left the memory card in the computer at home. This is the kind of airy-fairy stuff I have to deal with on a daily basis!

Anyway I was super excited to style my Sincerely Jules tee that I bought last week at the Piperlime event. I was between doing a very colourful ensemble, with pinks and greens. But for my low-key day in Brooklyn I opted for a Parisian-chic look, with plain skinnies and moto vest. I hope the finished look would have made SJ proud!

Happy Monday everybody, MP xxx

Grey Bunny

Aritzia sweater :: H&M men's tee :: Sparkle and Fade skirt :: Swatch watch ::
Nike Blazer Mid sneakers :: Forever 21 tote :: Ray-ban glasses

Arugula, acorn squash, beet and and pear salad at Park Luncheonette, in Greenpoint.

The simple beauty of life is all around us.

Sometimes I decide I'm in the mood to wear what I feel would be comfiest. But I think you can be comfortable without having to throw on trackies and an old pair of Uggs! Apply the same techniques and tips you would if you were putting an outfit together for a special occasion, thinking about dominating hues, appropriate accessories and a hair style that will compliment the look. For example with this outfit, grey black and white provided a colour palette, the sporty watch is appropriate to the sporty-chic look, and the ponytail gives it that girly edge.

Ps. My reading material just so happening to match my grey-black-white effect! Happy Easter from MP xxx

Molly Pocket X Sincerely, Jules

(Topshop shirt :: J. Crew cargo pants :: Zara mules :: Guess belt ::
Banana Republic bag :: Asos leather jacket :: Nixon watch)

Needless to say, Molly was an extremely excited bunny before entering the Piperlime store, where Julie Sarinana, ever so fabulously, awaited!

Besides posing for the camera, we even had time for the chats, where she filled me in on her Coachella experience and answered my questions on her LA flea market knowledge. It was fabulous. She was fabulous. Everything was fabulous.

I loved the store's interior. The rugs, comfy seating areas, and antique cabinets gave a finished look I would want in my own home.

I bought this one, which is your favourite?

Outfit planning for the big night!

(J. Crew shirt :: Topman pants :: Michael Kors watch :: Nike sneakers)

Austin's #ootd. I am chuffed that I have a boyfriend that (secretly) also dressed to impress Julie. He even wore his never-before-worn new Nike sneakers. Loving himself!

So overall the night at Piperlime was a thrilling and incredible experience. Not only was she just as stylish and beautiful in the flesh, but even more charming than one would imagine. Until our next meeting Julie, where hopefully you will be queueing to meet Molly Pocket!!!!
