More than ever, I have really taken a liking to florals this season. It may have something to do with the fact that the prints are a lot more “moody” in the sense that they consist of darker tones which have honestly always been my preference. Garments with bold patterns such as these, whether vibrant or not, can also turn the most simple ensemble into a statement making look with minimal hassle or thought. I was drawn to this particular frock mainly because (as much as I love wearing black in the Winter) I like to challenge myself to bring a little color into my outfits during the Autumn season. Aside from that, I thought the length and classic fit of the dress was very flattering as well as feminine. In efforts to keep the look weather appropriate, I opted for my grey suede OTK boots, which somehow ended up being the perfect neutral piece for this particular look. It’s no secret that I am utterly OBSESSED with thigh-highs and am currently debating on my next style for this season; something bold perhaps? In true ASM fashion, I must always have an edgy element of contrast so I grabbed this over-sized vintage denim jacket (thanks Mom). The pairing of the outerwear piece was so necessary to me because aside from being practical and a true representation of where we are during this time of year, it also brought another layer of effortlessness to the entire outfit. After finishing off the look with one of my favorite dark nude lippies, I was on my way and out the door! As I style blogger, I really think it’s important to style looks that I would wear in my day to day life and provide suggestions without necessarily adhering to the “rules” and guidelines that we are told to follow. All in all, it’s just clothes so it’s only right that we experiment and wear what makes us feel most comfortable and confident! Comment below if you’re a fan of “moody florals,” brighter patterns, or none of the above. Until next time!

One of the reasons why I love the blogging industry, is because of all of the amazing connections and opportunities that are able to be made in an instant. For this collaboration, I was contacted by one of the amazing sponsors of a networking event I attended back in November; Bon Vivant. This French inspired cafe is known for its luxe ambiance and beautifully hand-crafted artwork that adorns each one of their cube shaped pastries. These mini-cakes are created using traditional French techniques and are infused with layers upon layers of flavor that work as the perfect partner to accompany your favorite tea, coffee, or champagne. While they first began as online-only brand, they have since expanded their market and can now be found in a brick & mortar location, on a quaint road on the Manhattan island. As soon as I stepped foot into the cafe, I instantly felt like I had been transported into a European hot spot. Even before tasting the delicious desserts, I got a clear sense of the amount of detail, time, and effort that went into making each treat an experience to be desired and remembered. This is definitely the kind of place that you take your time enjoying. From the intoxicating scents, light music, and mouth watering flavors, your 5 senses will be completely stimulated like never before! In terms of my outfit, I tried to dress for the occasion and maintain a posh vibe that matched my surroundings. I felt like the mock neck dress, fur vest, and thigh high boots definitely reminded me of the chic Parisian style, while my stark white backpack brought a NYC street style element. Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant experience and am so grateful that I get to collaborate with creative brands that take their craft just as serious as I do. If you are in the NYC area, definitely check out Bon Vivant, to get a taste of European luxury, or take advantage of their shipping options and experience these mouth watering cakes in the comfort of your own home. Au revoir!
