Back to School Fashion!

September is here!  I love the feeling of a new year.  It’s the perfect time to upgrade yourself and your style!  Click here (7 Steps to a New You) to revamp your life in one week.  Your life is your story.  Write, then edit often.

If you are a fashion freak like me, you are thinking about what to wear on your first day of school or work.  What is on the inside is of course important, but why not reflect what’s on the inside, outside?  For people who think fashion is silly, I say, you have to wear clothes, you might as well wear something that you love, that represents your taste, mood, and style.

Here’s my outfit for my first day.  My favorite color is white so I wanted to play with textures and details on a monochromatic canvas.  White is universally flattering and it always feels fresh, vibrant, and clean!  I paired a pleated tennis skirt that skims the knee with this eyelet top to balance out the exposed skin.  It is still 90 degrees here in New York and I wanted to stay cool!  This top is one of my favorites because it’s sexy yet sweet.  I love the shape of the eyelets and the sheer paneling on the shoulder.  Underneath is a hot pink bra to match the shade of my lipstick for a pop of color and a hint of fun.  My favorite piece is my bracelet, Overture by BYoonique.  Cindy from Opera Bracelets and I designed this together, inspired by my great orchestra, The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.  It adds elegance, sparkle, whimsy, and dresses up this look!  To read more about it, click here (Overture).
