swap meet

jennyRemember this post when I told you about this coat? Well – it came, but quickly so it went. After arriving by way of London via farfetch.com, they accidentally had sent the wrong size! It was a disappointing moment in the Greenstein-Weisberger household since it had traveled across the Atlantic and was unavailable in the States. While waiting to exchange it for the right size and mulling over if I should just return it all together, I happened upon this. Cheaper than the Malene Birger and similar in silhouette, it felt like a sign to let the other one go. So I did, and had a few extra bucks in my pocket, to boot. Here is the coat from Zara that I swapped it for, paired with the boyfriend jeans I wear endlessly and topped off with some bling.

SHOP IT: coat: Zara, top: old (similar), jeans: GAP, shoes: J.Crew (similar), bag: Louis Vuitton, sunnies: Ray-Ban (similar), ring: old (similar), bangles: vintage & from india (similar), rhinestone bracelet: j.crew (similar), cuff: old (similar)

style, naturally – part II

weekend wear_final_1Happy Monday!  Remember this post discussing effortless style?  Nothing beats it – wearing easy and laid back ensembles that you feel confident in.  Dina and I have made it a ritual to hit up the farmers market on Saturday mornings.  We go pretty early to avoid crowds and the last thing I want at that hour is to a) think and b) be uncomfortable.  But I also don’t want to look like I rolled out of bed.  You feel me, right?  These “sexy boyfriend jeans” from GAP are perfect for these days.  Relaxed and roomy, yet (like their name says), “sexy”.  Pairing them with my go-to, (haven’t taken them off my feet) Zara booties and moto jacket also helps alleviate the shlump-factor.  I feel like I’m in my pajamas without actually being in my pajamas.  There are ways, my friends.  There are ways.  Comfortable + stylish = mission accomplished.

SHOP THIS OUTFIT:  moto jacket: Sfera (similar), shirt: Zara, jeans: GAP, shoes: Zara, bag: Louis Vuitton (similar), sunnies: Ray Ban

hello, yellow

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-2013
Yellow is hitting it hard this season as demonstrated in the Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 runway show.  I have never been a mega fan of the color however while perusing the interweb I found some goodies that have convinced me otherwise.  It’s definitely a tough shade for us fair skin girls but throw on a red lip for pop of color and I think it may do the trick.  Or you can just go with yellow accessories.  A few items on the radar…
