Monday's are for Double-Breasted blazers. Nothing screams "I'm ready for the new week, and mean it" like a DB blazer, and if you actually mean it, I suggest you throw on the complete suit. This Hopsack navy DB blazer by J.Lindeberg is no stranger to the blog, AND, get this, is on sale for 50% off directly off their e-commerce site, right here. I paired my DB blazer with a floral shirt, which received pretty great feedback, and when I mentioned it's from American Eagle, people tend to stare at me as if I just said something extreme, like I'm opening for Jay and B during their On The Run tour. Yes, I'm not ALL designer, ALL the time, but stores like American Eagle, similar to most, have more than a handful of items that I would rock. Lastly, I threw on my new Ferragamo colored slip-on sneakers. Many of my avid readers will notice that I have these in a different color way, orange perforated, which last season couldn't help but wear on the daily. I loved these so much, I had to have another. The best kind of sneakers are super comfortable, have a punch of flavor, and if it gives you an extra inch or two, it's a winner in my book. Hopefully your week is as bright as these kicks (insert thumbs up emoji).

PROJECT NY: WHAT I WORE, DAY 1

Project New York, a place where brands, buyers and pretty cool people meet. This was my third season joining the Blogger Project, honored to say the least, a roster full of new and old faces of fashion folks. This year, Project moved to the Jacob Javitz Center, way bigger and better, if you ask me. Although Summer 2014 has a few more weeks until it becomes a season in our past, the anticipation for Summer 2015 is on, and after seeing the new collections, I can assure you it's going to be a good one. You see, a Summer season is as good as its clothing. Some of my favorite collections were Todd Snyder, Bespoken, Anderson's Belts, Troubadour, Ben Minkoff, and way more. For the first day, I decided to throw on some blue, stripes and a pair of double monks, because I mean business. New York was short and sweet for me, but I'm super excited for Project Vegas, picture Project NY, but on steroids, yup, way bigger. Stay tuned for a few of my favorite brand spotlights, they're coming, I promise.

Bonjour Monday! This past weekend I had the opportunity to re-join the Blogger Project, a group of super fashionable individuals curated by Marcus Troy, for the third season to cover the latest Spring/Summer '15 collections featured at Project New York. Many people ask me, "What is Project?!" Well, it's a place where buyers from all over the world search and discover treasures, both brands and products. In addition, having the the Blogger Project present at the show give the brands the opportunity to connect and seek for advice from people that may know a thing or two about fashion (yup, I probably know a thing or two, but that's probably it.) The first day was off to a powerful and great start, and stick around as I will share a few brand spotlights. Moving on to today's look. Kicking the week off with a casual look featuring Brooklyn We Go Hard, a French contemporary sporty streetwear brand. Many of you might know them by their famous sweatshirt, Brooklyn Parle Francias, which was spotted on many influentials this season, and is basically sold out everywhere. I paired my sweatshirt  with distressed denim, a leather baseball cap and a pair of John Varvatos for Converse kicks.
