Exploring the Best Views in Central Park

Hello from New York City! It’s been a bucket list item for years for Johnny and I to go to New York City during the holidays together. I have been several times before but unfortunately, he couldn’t tag along. This time, we are in the NYC for a good few days and are beyond excited to explore and check off some places we’ve been dying to visit! I’m partnering with Sole Society in today’s post to share some warm and comfortable pieces I’m wearing on my trip. Of course, you can’t go on a trip to New York without visiting Central Park. However, it’s quite vast and I want to save you some time. So I’m sharing the best views in Central Park and what I’m wearing to take in those views while staying warm.

Monochromatic Pink Fall Look

Monochromatic looks are some of my favorite because of how chic they are and easy to create. This pink monochromatic look is a one way I’m easing into fall. A monochromatic look doesn’t always has to be the same shade of the color. I love subtle differences because it can really make the outfit pop. This pink knit sweater has pom poms in the shape of a heart, which is quite adorable. This is a chunky knit sweater made of acrylic, so it’s perfect for fall and into winter. Acrylic is quite warm, but unlike wool and cashmere, it’s not as breathable. However, if you’re cold this is a great option. The v-neck means you can wear it off one shoulder for a slouchy look, too. Also, this sweater comes in white, lavender and tan.

How to Wear a Corduroy Overall Dress for Fall

Happy First of October! I’m so excited fall is here and this past weekend, the weather in Coastal Virginia even cooperated! We got some crisp temperatures and it was divine. I wore this corduroy overall dress over the weekend and got so many questions on my Instagram! This is my second overall piece this season and I’m really digging the trend. This overall dress is retro-inspired but with some modern touches. The mini length is perfect for petite gals, I’m 5’3, and doesn’t require alterations. This particular overall dress dips quite low in the front, so it’s perfect for layering with your favorite top. I love this white stretchy off-the-shoulder top for a simple look. One thing I love about this particular corduroy is how stretchy it is. This dress is quite comfortable to wear and the sage green color is perfect for fall!

The Swimsuit You Need :: White High-Waisted Bikini

I’m a big fan of color, which is why this blog is called Color & Chic. However, every once in a while I do love neutrals, especially white. I have a big soft spot for a good white bikini, particularly a white high-waisted bikini. The pom poms on this bikini really add a fun touch but aren’t too much to where this bikini will be out of style soon. This is the swimsuit you need this summer because it’s a classic with a twist. The triangle top is flattering, even for smaller busts. While the high-waisted bikini is great for lengthening the legs and slimming you down. I’m wearing an XS in both the top and bottoms. The top fits well and would certainly still work for those who are more endowed than me. The bottoms are a perfect fit, too! This high-waisted bikini definitely fits true to size.

When Life Gives You Lemons :: Lemon Print Jumpsuit

Happy FriYay, y’all! Sooo, Why did the lemon fail her driving test? It kept peeling out! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. I feel like I have to tell a bad lemon joke anytime I wear anything lemon print. However, how darling is this strapless lemon print jumpsuit?! It is the perfect piece to bring the sunshine wherever you’re going. I typically prefer items that skim the body more, but I’m loving the wide leg trend right now. Plus, it also helps when the weather gets hot. This fresh-squeezed number has built-in pads, so you can totally nix your bra! I love the sweetheart neckline, which gives this lemon print jumpsuit such a summery feel. One aspect I love is how effortless this jumpsuit is. Throw it on and head out the door and you are sure to make everyone smile wherever you go!
