Spring is officially here and the temperatures have warmed up a bit, though when my friend and I shot this look a week or so ago, it was still quite cold. It was in the upper thirties and I was freezing my tukus off the whole time. This ensemble is great for that in between time of year such as early spring or late fall when the temperatures vary.
The garments are all locally made by the designer who owns the boutique
The sweater has a semi lose fit so it won’t be to warm, yet it will keep you warm with it’s long sleeves and light knit. This is such a fun sweater with it’s stars and strips, I love the statement it makes. I picked this up at a local boutique called NU New York. I have written about this shop before, and wore another piece from this shop on one of my Vlogmas videos. The garments are all locally made by the designer who also owns the boutique. How cool is that?
I paired it with these distressed jeans from H&M which you may have seen on my Paris Vlog. And the kicks are from VEJA. Ironically, I bought these in New York about a month or so before I went to Paris, they were on sale for %50 off. But I saw them all over Paris.
VEJA launched in 2005 is a footwear company that makes environmentally friendly sneakers
In fact, one day I stopped in to one shop while wearing these sneakers, and the sales assistant was also wearing them! Though in a different color. VEJA, launched in 2005 is a footwear company that makes environmentally friendly sneakers from raw materials that are organically sourced and produced. Made without chemicals or pollutants, they are also produced in dignified conditions respecting both the people that make them, as well as the people who wear them. With all the negative stories in the news today and the impact of fast fashion, it is refreshing to see a company make a difference.
The necklace which I have featured on the blog before is from J Crew and the gold bag is from Parisian company Max&Enjoy. Some of you may have seen this on my Fashion Week vlog. Then, I wore it with a gold metallic pleated skirt, but this time I went for a more contrasted look, going for a high-low effect. Plus I liked how it picked up the gold in the sneakers. Finally I threw on this camel coat from Tommy Hilfiger. How do you handle the in-between seasons? What is your go to piece this season?2
