Accidentally Audrey


Today's look was accidentally Audrey-Esque. I donned black and white stripes (per usual) and a red lip (of course) and spent a good 30 minutes on my hair (unheard of for this bun-loving-bedhead) before walking my thirty minute morning commute through the sauna that is currently New York City. Upon arriving to my office, I glanced in the mirror to see that my well orchestrated locks had somehow been magically replaced with a wild, frizzy fro -- thanks New York. I didn't panic,  but quickly tossed up my mess of a mane into a undone bun with bird's-nest inspired tendencies. After using up my to "emergency" bobbies, I resulted to a few paperclips that hopefully no one will notice, or miss from the office viola ... Accidentally Audrey.

The big shades and bow ring were the final touches, plus my low block heel sandals (that I simply wore because they are one of the few pairs I can do a whole twelve hour day in) were subtle nods to the film princess ... I hope Miss Hepburn would approve




This look is actually surprisingly simple for me and I honestly wasn't planning on posting it (I usually like to try and teach something in my outfits posts like "if you have a serious stripe obsession [hands up] here's how to wear a striped skirt with a striped top" or "are you afraid of pencil skirts? me too but let's conquer our fear together with this flattering piece"). But I had some time to kill between work and this amazing Capwell & Co event I attended last night, so naturally we had to fill it with a highline photoshoot, because what else could Paris and I possibly do with a free hour in NYC.

After meeting up with blogger babe Daisy O (who had borrowed these babies for the 4th) I switched into some Capwell & Co bracelets for the event. Oh, this event (sigh)....  it was one of the most beautiful blogger gatherings I have ever been honored to attend! Our hostesses with the mostess, Jessica planned a brilliant rooftop soiree held at the Maritime Hotel. I shortly met up with more blogger gal pals Elana and Melanie. Mel somehow convinced me to sip an Amaretto Cran with her, although I am strictly a "i'll have half of a martini" kind of gal ... so if I sound a bit off in this post or make some dramatic grammar error, blame Mel & the Amaretto (Just kidding ... well kind of).

Anyways, we had a ball, stuffed our faces and left blinged out in capwell & co .. you know usual blogger business. Check out more of the fun on instagram by searching #capwellatsunset  & shop my Capwell favorites here:

What do you think of Capwell & Co? Are you a brand fan or just learning about it now? I love discovering new jewelry companies and have quickly caught the Capwell & Co fever... so I'm sure this won't be the last you'll see from this beautiful brand. XO
