I recently had the pleasure of visiting Vancouver for the first time…I have never even been to Canada, in fact! I must say, I immediately fell in love with the city. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up changing my flight three times to extend the trip…financially irresponsible, as are most of my decisions, but I just didn’t want to leave.

The way I see it, I am young and have nothing tying me down at the moment. When an opportunity for travel presents itself, I try to take it and figure things out as I go. Call it impulsive, but in embracing this slightly “nomadic” lifestyle, I have really learned a lot about myself. My strengths and weaknesses. Things I am proud of and areas where I can improve. It has helped me grow as a person, I think.

I just want to go everywhere and see everything and meet everyone before I die. Realistic, I know. Wish me luck!!!

While summer happens to be my favorite season to spend in the city, nothing beats a great weekend escape. Got to head out to the Hamptons with the Disaronno crew and enjoy some sunshine, sand, and plenty of boozy poolside parties.

Thankful to have been able to spend a few days with three of my best friends, meet some fun new people, and work with a very cool brand that generously kept me good and liquored up the whole way through. Thank ya, Dis!

Overalls happen to hold a very special place in my heart. My mother tells me that by the age of two, she knew I would eventually work in fashion, as I would refuse to let her pick out my outfits, instead insisting to dig through the hamper in search of my favorite pair by Osh Kosh…proceeding to creatively accessorize so as not to be to redundant with my attire, of course. While Mom no longer attempts to weigh in on my outfit choices (or fund my wardrobe…darn), she did surprise me with this modern take on what I consider to be a classic American staple, while visiting from California last week. I’d say she did pretty well, wouldn’t you? THANKS MOM! 

Oh, and in case you didn’t notice, I am quite blonde now. And I got glasses. Ch-ch-ch-ch-changesssssss.

Always a big fan of the jumpsuit, this slouchy style by BB Dakota is a definite fave. It’s light and airy for summer, and I found the fun, minty color to be a cool contrast to my newly dyed lavender locks (giant thanks to Brian from the TIGI Academy!),

Snapped these photos while hanging at one of my favorite local spots, Le French Diner. They just reopened a few months ago…the food is awesome, the wine flows like water, and the owners / chef are major cuties. Check it out if you are in the Lower East Side, so charming!

Mesh It Up

As a San Francisco transplant, I spent years admiring tight mesh tank tops in The Castro…was finally able to find one I can pull off (#winning). Not only can I successfully channel my inner gay man, but this material is quite practical given the hellish temps and suffocating humidity that has recently conquered New York City. Practicality, my friends! Everybody breathe.

Hope y’all are recovering from an epic 4th of July weekend. Mine consisted of bikes, bikinis and BBQs. Plenty of poolside playtime…booze and nature. Basically most of my favorite things in life, woven together to create 3 days of glorious relaxation. The best time of year. <3

Took a little adventure to the West Village the other day and snapped a few shots with my friend and fabulous photog, Daisy. I love this part of the city…just south of Washington Square Park. Hanging around there kind of makes me feel like I am in college again.

The weather was pretty wack and unpredictable, so I borrowed my friend’s button-down before heading out. It is nice having male friends with good style. Especially when they have blue shirts that perfectly match your blue striped dress! Ain’t nothing wrong with a little spontaneous mix and match action…

Was feeling bright and bubbly so opted for this rad thrifted kimono dress, borowwed from my friend Jess, for a fun little shoot on the roof with Jono! This really is my favorite time of year in the city. Just when things start to get depressing at the end of winter, the sun starts making a more regular appearance, spirits are lifted, and layers are shed (allowing for way cuter outfits).

Looking forward to this weekend…brunch with friends, Governor’s Ball, and any other adventures that might await.
