The Chrysler Building may be my favorite skyscraper (see my previous Fashion Inspiration post here), but it is far from the only landmark in New York City. It’s the world’s largest train station in terms of tracks and the building itself is breathtaking. Don’t believe me? Check out these pictures:

And of course, don’t forget Serena van der Woodsen’s iconic entrance at Grand Central in the first episode of “Gossip Girl”.
I decided to put together a chic and spring-y outfit inspired by Grand Central. I love the starry ceiling, and that’s where I got my color palette.
Tank – Topshop; Skirt – Miss Selfridge; Woven Clutch – Carlo Fellini; Watch – American Apparel; Jade necklace & ring set – Dorothy Perkins; Peep-toe slingbacks – Payless.
I started with this loose, jade tank top tucked into a camel, vintage-inspired skirt. The matching necklace and ring take a cue from Grand Central’s ornate detailing. For some contrast, I added other pieces in brown. The wristwatch is reminiscent of the clock in the main concourse. The slingbacks are casual, but practical and the low heel adds just a hint of retro flair. For fun, I added this woven clutch but any purse – a cross-body bag or structured tote – would work well with this ensemble. Keep your hair and make-up simple, and you’re ready for a day in the city!
