Earlier this week I convinced my husband to help me with a DIY project.  I wanted to remove all the paint from our fireplace and repaint it black. Keep in mind our NYC apartment was built in the 1930's. So you can imagine, there were layers upon layers of paint on the fireplace.  My "little" DIY project turned into a week long project. Last night we finished removing all the paint and tonight we  start painting. Can't wait to show everyone the finish result. Keep an eye on Instagram, I'll post more photos.

In today's post I'm wearing my wedding shoes with an all black outfit. With statement shoes like these I wanted to show off the shoes and not distract from the details, so I opted to wear it with an all black outfit.

Here's a photo from our wedding of me in my shoes and wedding dress.

Statement necklaces have always been one of my staples in my wardrobe. Recently though, I've found myself reaching for statement earrings when getting ready. What I've noticed is that some of my tops don't look good with necklaces over the neckline or the material of the shirt. Today's outfit is a great example. I think I tried on every necklace I own. The scoop neck and crochet didn't quite fit with any of my necklaces. Instead I tried on my Lisi Lerch earrings and they looked great. The earrings even out the whole look. With my height and shape, it's all about finding a balance in what I wear. The midi skirt and crop top are a great mix, but by wearing a necklace it made the outfit look cluttered and uneven.

If you're in the market for statement earrings, Lisi Lerch has several other earrings I'd highly recommend. The Tassel earrings are a personal favorite, the Hilary earrings are ideal for the office and the Ava earrings will make a statement with any outfit.

Also wanted to share with my readers an article from TotalBeauty. Yesterday they published an article on how to wear mules and they featured Corporate Catwalk (I'm right next to Miranda Kerr)! Be sure to check out the article here.

Have a great weekend! Over the weekend Matt and I will be doing a few home updates. I'll keep everyone posted via Instagram. See you on Monday!

As some of you might know, Olivia Palermo is one of my fashion icons. Her style is effortless and flawless. What intrigues me the most is her ability to wear a normal outfit and take it up a few notches by accessorizing and layering.  She's a mastermind. I've been following her outfits for years. Belts, clutches, white button downs and blazer are essential in her wardrobe. These are the pieces that bring her outfits together and give her the "fashion icon" status. 

Today's outfit is inspired by Olivia Palermo. A few weeks ago, she was spotted wearing this outfit while out in NYC. She wore a jeweled collar button down shirt and knotted it above the waistline.  It gives the outfit a whole new look. Less corporate chic and more stylish and fun.

If you love her midi leather skirt, you'll love these from NordstromCoach and Piperlime.  If you like her leather skirt, but not necessarily the color, check out this navy or black skirt (navy is a personal favorite). 

Throughout the last year, I've created a lot of outfits from my faux leather skirt. Check out how I've worn the skirt in the past with; blue+black sweater, crop top, and black+white striped blouse.
