A few months ago, I was approached by Coach to be part of to their awesome MYNY campaign, which features NYC-based bloggers styling outfits around Coach’s gorgeous new Poppy line. And honestly, I sort of couldn’t believe my luck. Not only did I get to try this awesome shoulder bag and necklace before they hit stores, but I’m also featured on the Coach website (look under “New at Coach” for the MYNY link)!
I think of my style as very much a product of New York City — before I lived here, stylish to me was a Lacoste shirt and Lilly Pulitzer dress. It was really only after a year or two of living in NYC that I started to get a little more experimental with what I wore, and a large reason for that was the sheer variety of what you see on the street every day. One of the things I love about New York is that I can run out for coffee in jeans and flip flops and pass a line of people dressed to the nines waiting for brunch. Or I can go out in some cute dress and sky high heels, and pass a random neighbor on our street, walking their dog in some cute vintage dress or high-waisted shorts. Because there’s no standard, everything fits in.
This messenger bag was perfect for a variety of outfits, from a casual, hippie-chic dress with peep-toe clogs, to this black romper that, to me, is the epitome of NYC on-trend sophistication. Kind of a little black dress, rethought. And the peace sign necklace reminds me of a glitzy version of one of my favorite accessories as a kid — some things never go out of style.
