Fashion Weekend: Part Two

Friday was seriously one of my favorite days in a long time.  I did so much my feet have literally not yet recovered.  First we started the day at By Chloe, a new vegan restaurant that has taken instagram by storm (check out my insta of my lunch @mermaidwaves), then headed off to Brooklyn for 29 Rooms.  29 Rooms was put on by Refinery 29 over the past weekend and was heaven on earth.  I was so inspired by every one of the 29 rooms.  Check out some photos below (and a sick video on Instagram).  After 29 Rooms I got the opportunity to see Iris Apfel speak so obviously I died.  She is definitely the sassiest, spunkiest, and best-dressed 94 year old on this planet.  

Now onto the look, underwear as outerwear is definitely one of my go-tos trends, by pairing this bra top over a button-up it gave this top such a chic look.  I always struggle to wear this top because I can't fill it out so it tends to gap and look skimpy, but with this crisp button-up I have a totally new way to wear this piece!  The culotte has transitioned into the ultimate fall piece with this longer version, the perfect length for an ankle boot!

Never take your head out of the clouds.
