CD x NA-KD: A Valentine's Day Dream

Claudia Di Capua

A note on what to wear and do with your besties and significant others this Valentine's Day in collaboration with NA-KD

The Collaboration

The second part of my collaboration with NA-KD revolves around Valentine's and/or Galentines Day! I’m always struggling or waiting until the last second to decide what I’m going to wear and do for our dinner/date night, but not this year. I’m turning a new leaf and getting prepared early with the help of NA-KD! As you can see, I went the romantic route with floral prints and flowy silhouettes. Read on for more on what drew me to this style and shop the entire look below! I've included some activity ideas to do with your besties or SO at the bottom. Use code claudiadicapua20 to receive 20% at checkout on na-kd.com!

I often have a hard time finding super feminine pieces that fit well with my style. I like florals and ruffles, but finding a look that didn’t look frilly, poofy or like I was wearing someone else’s clothes was a challenge. This is until of course, I came across this midi-dress. My biggest dilemma with this dress was choosing what color I wanted! I literally wanted them all. I guess that’s not the worst problem to have?! Don’t get me wrong, I was a little skeptical about the length, the print the ruffles, if it would mesh well with my style and the list goes on. But, taking this leap helped me expand my color choices and broaden my style. Did I mention I’m obsessed with the dress?!

The Look

This midi, Victorian style number stood out to me because I felt I could make it work for at least two seasons out of the year, maybe three. In the fall I could play the layering game with an oversized sweater and scarf plus a pair of sneakers. The transition period between the winter and spring (aka now) is the perfect opportunity to break it back out for sporadic warm days and of course, Valentine’s Day! 

The layered ruffles and sheer upper body give this dress a whimsical, ethereal and romantic look. I had such a great time spinning around, letting the wind catch the dress as I moved. The cinched waist helped maintain my body’s natural shape, which can sometimes get lost in dresses like this one that have a decent amount of material. The sheer top is what gave this piece its lightness. These types of dresses can look heavy, but certain features helped to eliminate that concern. The neck has the prettiest ruffle and tie closure. It’s not overwhelming and looks just as good untied (as I wore it) as it does tied. I wanted that super romantic, flowy look, which is why I left it open. 

Dress | Shoes | Earrings

A dress like this speaks for itself, so adding too many extras would be doing it a disservice. The print and silhouette spoke volumes leading me to select the simplest pair of heels I have. This is Valentine's date night after all! Do not be deterred, though. I tried this dress on with sneakers and love the sporty juxtaposition. Other than these minimal black sandals, I only added a pair of Mejuri gold hoop earrings and let the morning sunrise do its thing with the glow! Remember to get your V Day looks soon so they arrive before your date night with your SO or besties! (claudiadicapua20 for 20% off).

To The Beach

The last part of our shoot took us to the beach. It was still early morning, so we were able to watch a huge group of Venice Beach surfers catch some waves while we finished up. 

If you haven’t gone to a beach early in the morning, I suggest you do! The wind is a little calmer and the gradual sunrise helps you start your day off right. I’m definitely going to end more of my shoots on a beach when I can! Having the sand between your toes and wind in your hair while watching a sport you love (but obviously can’t actually do) makes shooting SO much fun!

Dressed Up Vs. Dressed Down in NA-KD the Brand

Claudia Di Capua

The Collab

I've partnered up with NA-KD, a brand that has taken Instagram street style by storm and one that I have aspired to work with for a while! This couldn't have come at a more perfect time as I have just hit 10k followers on Insta (woohoo!) giving me the ability to share their awesome clothing with all of you.

See how I dressed up and dressed down a couple of different pieces below and keep an eye out for a Valentine's Day post featuring another gorgeous item. Shop the NA-KD pieces below on na-kd.com using code claudiadicapua20 for 20% off you order!

THE LOOK

As an avid denim wearer, it can become monotonous wearing a certain style all the time or a certain shade. When I was approached by NA-KD with a selection of clothing including these jeans, I knew these had to be a piece that I featured! I'm obsessed with the seam down the front of the leg leading into a slit at the ankle. The ankle is the part that really sells these for me. I already have skinny black jeans with a high waist, but the subtle details on this pair are a game changer! The pants can be worn with heels or flats without losing their intrigue. The slit is an eye catcher and adds the perfect amount of detail.

I've thrown in two new things that I don't normally wear. They are hats and the color purple. I couldn't resist getting myself a beret! I want one in every color at this point. Speaking of color, let's chat about this plum purple blazer situation. I ordered this blazer in about 3 different colors before I settled on this one! Something about the silky sheen that it has along with the super feminine shape and rich color really made me take the leap. I love a long blazer, but it has been difficult finding one that is oversized and doesn't look frumpy. This one is the perfect length to wear it buttoned or unbuttoned and can be dressed up or down. Shop the whole look below!

THE LOOK

Cozy and cool for the win! Or at least trying to be cool (haha). This NA-KD sweatshirt is super soft and has the cut that I always go for. I'm not a huge fan of hoods, so the street style mock neck is right up my alley. I love the length because I can tuck in the front perfectly into a pair of high waisted pants or skirt. The embroidered text gives the sweatshirt that added quality I'm always looking for!

I was desperate to stay cozy in this frigid morning temperature, but in order to jazz it up I went with pair of striped palazzo pants by Reformation. You may recognize them from last season's NYFW, but I have repurposed them in a more down to earth way. Pairing them with my favorite and first pair of nike's, I felt effortless strolling down the Soho streets.

No street style look is complete without adding something a tad weird (but so gooood). Asos was my go-to for these crazy sunglasses, or should I say fashion glasses. They of course don't work as well as my more functional sunglasses that cover a little more area, but they look so cool! Asos has the BEST prices on sunnies, so definitely check them out if you want to try out some new styles.

Lauren Ralph Lauren Summer Collection: A Day in NYC

Claudia Di Capua

Top: Lauren by Ralph LaurenShorts: J. CrewBag: Zara Sunglasses: Ray-BanHeels: Public Desire

The Collaboration

I’m partnering with Ralph Lauren to help share their Summer 2017 Lauren by Ralph Lauren line! I am so grateful to be working with a company that I have known and loved for so much of my life. I spent a day in various parts of NYC showing you how seamlessly this collection merged with my style and how well each piece worked for different times of day. In this post and the one to come on Thursday, I’ll highlighting the Lauren Ralph Lauren Carrington Brigitte Tote, Premium Cropped Denim and (name of top). See how I styled each piece, shop the items and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

The Look

Summer is all about the cold shoulder and off the shoulder looks, so blogging about this top had the word “yassss” running through my mind! I like how the top has short sleeves rather than long or draped. I haven’t seen off the shoulder tops like this very often and this style felt very clean and timeless. In NYC heat, carrying around heavy weighted clothing is a no. This blouse is not only light weight, but it has a chambray look to it and delicate arm and hem details that give it an airier look!

While you are more than welcome to wear this blouse long, I prefer to tuck it into my shorts or pants. I opted for a simple white pair of shorts fro J. Crew (sooo comfortable)! The denim is so soft and works perfectly with everything form dressy tops to t-shirts. To keep this cool color palette going, I made sure to keep my accessories in the silver/grey hue. I’ve head these heels for a while, but the lace-up and simplistic style are keeping this pair as a go-to. I never get sick of them!

I’m obsessed with this Zara bag! They have it in a few colors (which I just saw online) and I may have to scoop up a few more! I came across this silver version in a store and fell in love. I usually go for a tote or cross body bag, but never considered other styles. The straps are the perfect length to wear as a shoulder bag, but also have it hang low enough to not be in the way. Also, there is a zipper to store any valuables! It’s perfection and I highly recommend.
