Having just gotten back from a 2 day NYC extravaganza,┬áto say I’m exhausted is an understatement. My fab tourguide/Montreal roomate/bestie managed to pack a million sites into 48 hours — Brooklyn and Downtown on Sunday and Uptown on Monday — and I’m feeling pretty accomplished right now. I’ll be posting a more detailed Photo Diary later this week but for now, here’s my Day 1, Brooklyn/Downtown look.

O U T S I D E L A N D S

The Outside Lands Music Festival, which took place this past weekend, was an amazing experience that I will never forget. Seeing Elton John perform live was a privilege and a dream-like memory that I will hold on to forever. These days, it feels like the hype of music festivals surrounds basically anything other than what an amazing time they can be. Don’t get me wrong – the style was amazing and although I didn’t see any, a celebrity siting would have been interesting, but Outside Lands was a serious reminder that the goal should be an indescribable experience brought to us through music, and nothing else.

With that said, here’s what I wore:

The poncho is back! I really wanted to show it both ways that I wear it – over pants and dresses. Wearing this poncho over a dress makes me feel like the free-est spirit in the world. Everything’s so breezy and comfortable – I feel invincible! I also loved pairing this little black dress with the layered turtleneck; it’s a great way to make your summery dresses work in the winter!

In the midst of the craziness that is keeping up with New York Fashion Week, I thought I’d make a little outfit post for you guys. This is a pretty basic go-to outfit for me: ripped jeans, booties, and a v-neck sweater-long scarf-moto jacket combo on top. It’s an effortlessly cool look, while remaining comfortable and warm too.
