A look from H&M for a day out in brooklyn

By Posted on 1 min read 448 views








Nothing is lovelier then spending a crisp fall day strolling in Brooklyn. The brownstones and tree lined streets with their changing colors and dappled sunlight so puts one in the mood to shop for Christmas. I did a bit of this and picked up few things for myself as well. I will be vlogging about this in the not too distant future.

Today I am sharing with you what I wore for this excursion. You have seen this top before in my NYFW vlog. When I wore it to NYFW I paired it with a pleated metallic skirt and suede mules for a very dressed up look. Here, I am dressing it down with distressed jeans and low heeled ankle boots. The necklaces which I layered together are from J Crew and COS. Both the top and the jeans are from H&M and the boots which you may have seen on my What I wore to Paris Fashion Week post are from Guess.

Don’t you love when clothes can do double duty? From chic fashion week events to running errands you can’t go wrong with a ruffle top.

    I would say most of my clothes can be easily mix, match and layered. I am not a fan of clothes shopping so whenever I do, I make sure I will get multiple wear throughout the seasons. You look great, Allie and so comfortable in front of the camera these days.
