Just so we’re on the same page… I want you all to know my life the day I wore this outfit. Ps. All commentary courtesy of the male gender…
“It’s like an Easter egg just walked through my door.”
“You are a vision in pastel.”
“That’s a very bright shirt.”
“Woah, it’s bright in the kitchen this morning.”
“WOAH HOLY CRAP WHAT THE BRIGHT!?”
“You match your post-its.”
So here’s me, after all that verbal jazz, just doin’ my thang…

Hello there! Today, a shmorgishborg of good shit all thrown into one outfit. Can ya feel me?
How rad is this tee? I’m in love with the type. Find yourself the very same one at Zara, here.
Ps. I’m in the market for some summer rings – think delicate and simple. What’s your go-to place for such needs?

These “rerun” Levi cut offs are just too good. The details are unreal (I mean, just look at that wallet imprint on the back pocket…swoon). They truly are a piece of art with major #swag. I picked these up in New York at American Two Shot. You can find similar styles here by Denim Refinery. Obv mine are one of a kind, but they have other incredible pieces (these are my next purchase). If you’re in New York and you haven’t been to American Two Shot then you’re failing at life. The place is chock full of inspiration. More on that later.
This blue kimono jacket reminds me so much of my Mom, I had to have it. It’s the perfect polished addition to cut offs and a tee, my summer skin.
Black & Yellow: Ok, let’s just get this over with. Two things come to mind with this combo: this song and a ridiculous bumble bee Halloween costume. Now that we’re past that (you can keep listening to the song) I want you to indulge me here. Try it out, you’ll be surprised. Ps. My favorite way to add yellow to my wardrobe? Colored shoe laces. It’s the easiest and most rewarding update. Also, just as I was finishing up this post, I found this mega amazing outfit. You’re hooked now, no going back.
Navy Blue & Tan: Dream team, ya’ll. They play so well off each other, it’s almost like they sit across from each other on the color wheel. This one is easy to infuse into your wardrobe, off you go to try it out.
Purple & Pink: News flash, barbie isn’t the only girl in town that can wear this color combo. The galaxy print pretty much solidified my love for this duo this season. Don’t even get me started on those Nike Dunks. I already have them in red, but this vintage silver/purple pair is also hollering/screaming/yelling/whistling my name.

This little dress is by far one of my favorite things I own. It’s really different from what I usually gravitate towards, so it helps me push my boundaries and I’m all about that. I wanted to dress it down a bit so I tied a knot on the side, to make the dress a bit shorter and give it those casual vibes. Great trick to help add some texture to any outfit, too. Here’s a similar one at UO that’s equally as incredible (mine is sold out).
When I travel I really love to find the local spots and steer clear of the tourist hyped out joints. However, there is some damn fine people watching to be done in Times Square and that my friends, is something we can all enjoy, tourist location or not. The boyfriend and I had some good times scoping out people in the crazy chaos.
I loved this outfit shoot because of the activity it captures and the stark contrast of my dressy LBD against the other casual outfits.
My two packing “musts” for New York – great walking shoes and outfits that welcomed layering. In this crazy spring weather, leaving the house with beaucoup layers is a must. Without fail, I am always cold. My favorite trick right now? Throw a winter flannel in my purse (hello, it takes up zero space) to have when the temps drop. It’s a million times better than lugging around your jacket for the entire day (only to use it for a few hours late in the day). This saved my life in Brooklyn when we were out from 10 am until 10 pm.
Our day in Brooklyn was probably my favorite. It had an intimate, yet big city vibe. The graffiti was nuts. Every single wall was tagged (my boyfriend pointed out to me several times, in case I was missing it) and I loved it. There’s something about a graffiti wall that speaks to my heart, I naturally gravitate towards them (especially for outfit pics, obvs).
