I’m calling this look “French girl meets NYC girl”. I took a page out of both style books to create a look that has the best of both sought after aesthetics. French girl style is effortless, mostly neutral and embodies the perfect balance of laid back yet polished – “chic décontracté” as they call it. New Yorkers, on the other hand, have perfected the art of taking the most basic pieces and creating a fashion moment. They love classic black, but aren’t afraid of incorporating color into their ensemble whether it’s accessories or a bold lip. If you blend these styles together you get…..New Fork?! I kid, I kid.

Nordstrom Rack was the destination to add some accessories to my look. Injecting some much needed color and a fun vibe into this outfit gives in a little more of an NYC vibe. A bold beanie in the brightest of blues is the pop of color this outfit was asking for. Why stop there? The stunning green Kate Spade bag really packs the punch. Let’s see how this neutral look got a lift with some bright accessories…
