New York Fashion and Personal Style Blog: We Are Living Our Adventure

Wore this little number out to celebrate my birthday last week. I must say…I’m super excited to be 25! The past year has been a complete whirlwind/roller coaster, to say the least. New city, new career, new apartments, and so many new challenges and heartaches to overcome. After a few solid months in Chelsea, I’m now living solo in the Lower East Side, and feeling fortunate to be working on things that inspire me on an ongoing basis. It seems like every day brings some kind of new surprise, and I’m just trying to soak up every minute of it! Life isn’t always easy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fucking awesome.

Pardon this little public reflection — I don’t mean to get all weird and nostalgic. Maybe this is just what happens when you hit the quarter century mark. Before I shut up though, I just want to thank you, my lovely friends and readers, for joining me on this journey. I am really looking forward to my 26th year on this planet and hope you’ll stick around and enjoy it with me! ♥

Had such an fun time teaming up with the wonderful people at Bollare to host the Eugene Is My Middle Name launch party at Scoop NYC earlier this week. Awesome fashion, good friends, delicious beverages, and a braid bar…what’s not to love? Huge thanks to everyone who came out! And if you weren’t able to make it, be sure to keep an eye out for the awesome (and ridiculously comfortable) denim collection next time you’re Scooping it up in the Meatpacking District!

Been toying around with a few new color combinations lately, and this burgundy on navy is definitely a personal fave. And, speaking of favorites, I have basically been living in these Goldsign jeans for the past two weeks. High rise, lightweight, and cropped cut perfection, I tell you. There is really something to be said about investing in a solid pair of jeans every now and again, don’t you agree? Dress them up, dress them down, whatever…I’m always game for good denim!

So I guess this is my au revoir to summer ensemble….at least I got to wear it once! On the plus, what’s great about a matchy matchy set like this is you can break it down and style so many different ways. Pair the crop top with high waisted jeans and a coat, or the skirt with a flowy blouse and chunky sweater. Endless possibilities!
