"Fantastik" Find

I went to Steve Madden last week hoping to find a great pair of sandals that would be on sale since it is (sadly) the end of summer... and I struck gold! I found this "fantastik" (as Steve Madden calls them... I happen to think it is quite fitting - I promise I do know how to spell fantastic) pair of tan sandal wedges on sale and have been showing them off ever since.

Seen below, I am also dressed head to ankles in Forever 21 (just coincidence - I must've woken up in a f21 kind of mood). I love these ankle pants because they are actually ankle pants on me, unlike most which just end up being regular length (since I am slightly on the shorter side). They were such a great fit that I actually went back to buy them in more colors...

Saturday Night Fever

It can definitely be a challenge picking out the perfect outfit for a Saturday night. Since it has to be juuuust right, I often go through about a half dozen wardrobe changes before leaving the house. In this case, I went with my silk, black, racerback tank. I wasn't sure exactly where the night would take me, but a simple tank can go a long way, match almost any outfit and look just the right amount of fancy. Tucked in to my tiered floral mini, paired with a long silver chain - it was a foolproof look.

Trying on outfits might've made me late in the end, but it's a small price to pay in order to leave the house looking great.

Long Dress, Short Shirt

Something that I have found myself wearing this summer (and re-wearing) are maxi dresses with crop tops. Its such a great way to dress up a little bit on the weekends for a day at the park or for a walk on the boardwalk, while staying super comfy. I love the way the short top compliments the long dress - maybe it's because it makes me feel taller ;)

Welcome to FashionSense

Welcome to FashionSense. I'm going to be your guide through what I know best - everything fashion. I will share with you my favorite trends and tools to stay in the loop, look great during your busy lives and keep in style while on a real budget (not that it will be particularly difficult because like most of you trying to survive in New York, I’m already on one).

Mullet Shirt: Free People, Tank Top: American Apparel, Shorts: J. Crew
 
I never thought I’d say this but one of my favorite trends this summer is the mullet – not the haircut, but shirts, skirts and dresses. The moral of the trend - business in the front, party in the back.

What's your favorite summer trend?
