The title of her blog Wit & Whimsy may suggest a fanciful flair but blogger Meghan Donovan is serious about styling and wearing city-friendly outfits.
Hailing from the Midwest and landing in New York City after a stint in California, Meghan knows that an outfit needs to have a bit of street-smarts to cut it in the city and recognize that practicality and style-savvy are not mutually exclusive. In turn, the whimsy of Meghan’s blog comes more from her playful mix of prints, her bold jewelry and personal spins on proportions.
To wander through the city’s neighborhoods, Meghan’s go-to items include statement flats and sandals, perfectly worn denim jackets and the pragmatic and chic cross body handbag. For this street style look, Meghan paired a boxy shift dress—which is punched up with jumbo leather polka dots—with her Vince Camuto Julia Cross Body in brilliant white. For her footwear, Meghan dons a pair of ankle-strap sandals to give her dress an edge. Comfortable enough to walk from the East River to the Hudson and spirited enough to stand out from the crowds, Meghan’s look lives up exactly to her blog’s name.
