Gap Embroidered jeans and lunch in park slope brooklyn

Ah, the calm before the storm, no I am not talking about the hurricane that to blew in town this weekend but that other main event that is due to blow in to town—NYFW. Yes the next few weeks are going to super busy so it was nice to spend a leisurely day in Brooklyn, strolling, shopping and dinning. I love Brooklyn in the fall, and although it has not quite arrived yet there was a taste of fall in the air on Saturday. With cooler temperatures and less humidity it was the perfect day to get together with my friend Angela for lunch and a perfect day for a shoot. Angela was very accommodating and agreed to shoot these wonderful photos of me. She is not a professional photographer and with a quick tutorial from me I left her to it, and wow what a fantastic job she did. This just may be a whole new career for her.

Angela has great fashion sense herself, in fact when I first decided to blog, I went to her for suggestions. Honestly I had not read many blogs before this. Angel gave me a number of excellent suggestions, and the rest as you know is history—and here I am today. Funny, when Angela I met up we were wearing very similar outfits—she was wearing distressed boyfriend jeans, a lose fitting tee—in her case striped, and white sneakers. I was wearing white slip on sneakers ( I was afraid tit was going to rain but when it didn’t I put on these fringe beauties) hers were lace up. But our outfits matched, besties at heart huh?

My distressed jeans are from Gap, who have really been stepping up their game as of late. The tee is also from Gap and is super comfortable for hot days when body con is just not an option. And aren’t these necklaces super chic? They are both from Rocks Box. I think they look cool paired together, of course they can be worn separately too. So many options, that is what is so fun about Rocks Box, all the options!

As it was bit cooler I also wore this blazer which I picked up at H&M about seven years ago, and it has been one of the best investments I have ever made. It was $70.00—expensive for H&M but looks and feels much more expensive then that. I have received so many compliments on it it, and have been asked many times where I purchased it. When I tell people H&M, they are always surprised. And finally I added these fringe sandals from Very Volatile Los Angeles. I picked them up last summer at Buffalo Exchange for $20.00, they were actually new-not second hand and they are surprisingly comfortable. They look like they would not have much shock absorption but they do. I can walk in them for hours with out my feet aching. Another awesome investment.

But the best deal of all? The bag from Sandra Roberts. This bag retailed for $280 but I got it on sale for $25.00 at a shop in Babylon NY. Gorgeous isn’t it? And what about you? What pieces do you considered great investments?

    I love how effortlessly chic you look in the pictures, Allie. I also noticed that you’re more comfortable and relax in front of the camera these days, it’s like you’re evolving into this confident model with every new post and I love it.

    I was curious to see how you would style these jeans after you first talked about them here. Love all the fab details you worked into the look from the cool necklaces to the fringed sandals. And that bag is an absolute bargain at $25!

    I love embroidered jeans and yours are lovely! Loved the necklaces and the sandals too! You look very beautiful! Angela is really sweet 🙂 and it happens, when 2 good friends meet they sometimes wear similar outfits! That’s why they are friends, who think alike 🙂 Loved that she took pictures, I need a friend like her 🙂 Hope you have a lovely day!
