Sunday Style

I have some exciting news for you all: in less than a week I will be in New York City for the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference! For today's Sunday Style I wanted to share some inspiration I have been gathering for the outfit packing chaos of my 5 day adventure in the city. 

 Firstly let's start off with the fact that I've been jumping for joy ever since my parents gave me this early birthday present. Secondly lets note how fabulous this woman looks clicking her heels together, literally. Not only is she taking chances by attempting that jump and clearly not concerned if her heels break on her landing, but her mixing of python printed shoes and what appears to be a Marikech  inspired blouse she manages to balance the two seemingly clashing patterns with a white pleated skirt. I've never been much a pattern mixing girl but this has me curious.....

Of course I will be camera in hand my whole time in the city, but sadly a tripod won't be so outfit pictures on location there will be far and few most likely. None the less I will still be decked out in my favorite threads and prepared for gusty winds that we are currently experiencing here in Miami thanks to Hurricane Issac. I am considering bringing my film camera but layering myself in 2 cameras and a purse seem....heavy; I'm not sure how this girl manages to do it with such a petite purse. I have to say though I love seeing a stylish girl going that extra mile to get The Shot. It inspires me in ways that words can't say.

Finally, the all white ensemble. I will be in the city on Labor Day Weekend which the proposes the question, if I bring my white pants will they still be acceptable to wear on the following Monday? I say yes and everything about what this girl is wearing makes me want to scream it. The classic nipped waist dress with a sports wear cap and over sized gem necklace on paper sounds like a clash waiting to happen, yet in person it comes off as elegant as Lady Dior. In this day and age there are really no more rules to follow when getting dressed. As I have been reading article after article about street style vs. fashion the statement I keep coming across is "We wear what we like" and in my opinion that is the philosophy of the 21st century style. Elegant idiosyncrasy some may say *cough cough*

Later this week I will be giving you all a tease preview of my outfit's planned for my 5 day trip to Wonderland. If you all have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
