This week on our ‘Looks We Love’ we’re featuring Andrea Simone from the blog Styled By Simone. Andrea is a fashion blogger from New York City, so she’s the perfect person to seek inspiration for city street style. She put together a look that we absolutely love for a day of exploring a new part of town and going to brunch.

We love how she puts it, ‘…what’s better than a Sunday in New York with good company? A good outfit to be seen in!’ We couldn’t agree more!

Here’s why we love Andrea’s look…

Keeps It Comfy In Jeans

She took a high-waisted, dark wash pair of jeans and subtly dressed them up. Nothing says weekend like a comfy pair of jeans. Saturday and Sundays are no days for business casual. Our goal is comfy yet cute which is exactly what Andrea did.

The Unique Sleeveless Peplum Top

Believe it or not, Andrea created this top out of a dress. The plum color is just bright enough to add a great pop of color and the sweetheart neckline and flare waist of the peplum top makes it feel feminine and fun.

The Casual Nude Suede Heel

One of our current favorite wardrobe staples in a nude heel. They literally go with everything! From a dress for a wedding to this Sunday brunch outfit. We love how they tie this outfit together achieving that subtle dressy yet casual look.

The Special Touches Of Accessories

Andrea is wearing the Ilene King Maisie Fringe Crossbody. The camel colored bag perfectly compliments this outfit and the fringe gives the look a touch of boho meets free-spirit vibe. We think this bag screams ‘weekend!’ The hands-free crossbody element is key because when you’re out exploring a new place and stopping in for brunch (and maybe a glass of rosé after) all you need is your phone, a credit card, and some lipstick. The last thing you want to worry about is a heavy tote!

As Andrea says,

I’m loving Ilene King bags lately, they’re so “New York,” chic with a touch of unique.

We think so too! Andrea is the epitome of an #IleneKingBabe  – she expresses her individuality by dressing honestly and accessorizing with purpose!
