05 / Weekly Style Inspiration

12 August 2016

This summer's style inspiration has come from the chicest chick of them all Haley Boyd. Who is Haley Boyd? For starters she has killer style and is the Creative Director of Marais USA - I'm sure you've either purchased Marais USA sandals or have on your wish list but Haley is the gal behind the shoe. She resembles the lovely Emily Haines (lead singer from Metric) and she looks like she just walked off the set of The Talented Mr. Ripley. Haley's style screams California and she shares her love of culottes, midi skirts and straw bags  perfectly on her Instagram account check out some of her snaps after the jump.

Have a fabulous weekend.

07 / My life lately

09 August 2016

Zara top & shoes/ J.Crew bag & shorts / Warby Parker sunnies

Wearing I can't get enough about culottes. I picked up a couple of these  from Zara and they have been on serious rotation.

Planning My husband and I are planning on taking a much needed vacation in January but we are still undecided where we want to go. So far we've thrown around London, Paris or somewhere tropical.

Reading I recently ordered The Girl From The Train so I'm excited to start it before the movie comes out.

Wanting I'll take anyone of these Marais USA sandals in a size 6 1/2 please & thank you.

Listening I've been really bad about keeping up with new music normally I"m listening to Sirius XMU for the hip new alternative band but lately I've either been listening to podcasts (Garance Dore, I Am  Rapport or Joe Rogan Experience) or playlist on my Apple Music.

Watching Since most of the shows are on hiatus I am watching Ray Donovan , Ballers and of  course everything on Bravo.

Working on my Photoshop skills.

Insta obsessed If you haven't already heard Instagram turned Snap Chat on us overnight and the question now is to Snap or not ? Either way you should be following @Alyssainthecity .

Random thought ... I've been looking for coffee tables and I can't decide on one I need help ? Round or rectangle ? Marble top or white top ? Modern or mid-century? so many decisions and so little funds.

09 / My Current style

04 August 2016

my current style


Do you follow me on Snap Chat? If you do then you would have noticed I've been wearing culottes practically every day. I'm so loving this trend right now it's perfect for camouflaging my hips / thighs perfectly and of course keeps you cool on those hot summer nights. If your uncertain on how to style them no need to worry I got you covered- crop tops are your friend when it comes to culottes. When wearing these to the office I go for a more fitted button up tucked in. I hope this trend sticks around till next summer . What are your thoughts on this trend?

04 / Weekly Style Inspiration

07 July 2016


One of the many things I miss about Baltimore is riding my bike to work & around the city. Even though I've had a handful of close calls getting on my bike strapping my bags to my basket and riding through the streets was my happy place. I have a little obsession with girls on bikes - style wise. Some girls can pull off some chic looks on a bike however the first pic is more my style- close toed shoes, denim (incase you fall off prevents road scrapes), and sunnies. I always admired the ladies that bike in heels I don't know how they do it especially when you have to make brief stops. Here's  some girls on bikes inspiration to end the week. Happy Friday & have a fabulous weekend.

Wearing Levi's shorts, Birkenstocks & basic tee I know ... groundbreaking.

Feeling like i'm ready for cooler weather and for my husband to come home.

Reading just about finished with Anderson Cooper's book The Rainbow Comes & Goes .

Wanting this off-the-shoulder top , this navy jumpsuit , and you know my love for a crop pant .

Listening to a lot of podcasts as of late I have been rotating Marc Maron's - WTF w/ Marc Maron , The Joe Rogan Experience & I am Rapaport w/ Michael Rapaport.

Watching Ray Donovan so pumped about the new season which started a few weeks ago.  Also TNT's new show Animal Kingdom with Scott Speedman it's so good.

Working on my ceramics class. It started a few weeks ago and I made my first slab piece on Saturday and it was a bust because of the instructor. I'll explain later once I get it back.

Eating heirloom tomatoes, avocado and cucumber salads all day everyday.

Instagram obsessed with Taylor Sterling from Glitter Guide. Her Insta feed is the perfect pink.

Random thoughts ... really stoked about SJP new show Divorce (watch trailer) .
