So this concludes the last set of pictures I ever took on the roof of my very first apartment in NYC. When I moved here with my childhood bestie (in the pic above), we literally had nothing. We slept on a pile of our clothes… literally. It amazes me to look at how far we’ve come and it excites me to see the directions we are headed in. Cheers to whatever the future holds!
There’s nothing I love more than the 90’s. From the Rugrats to Surge to Skip-It, I’m a full blown 90’s girl. For that reason, I love this nineties inspired Zoe Grunge Dress from Living Doll LA. I paired this baby with my favorite kicks at the moment, black on black Chucks, and some sunnies from Francesca’s.
Until next time,
What I Wore: Sunflowers
Life is bloom. I’ve just moved and it feels like the perfect fresh start I needed! For the past two years I’ve lived with my best friend in Washington Heights and taken hundred of photos on this rooftop - I’m going to miss photo sessions up there and will be posting the last batch of pictures we took before heading out throughout the next week. While I’m sad to leave my favorite backdrop behind, I’m now living in the Flatiron District and can walk to work in just under ten minutes… talk about convenience!
Now, on to the clothes! This outfit is simple and summery. It’s SO hot in NYC that I really wish walking the streets in the buff was an option, however, this light and airy outfit is a great alternative! Haha.
I ventured to Maine this weekend for a much need mini vacation! The forecast looked dismal, but I was hopeful, so I brought along this gorgeous maxi dress c/o SWAK Designs from their line Size Appeal. And boy was I lucky, the weekend ended up to be mostly sunshine (and quite a bit of wind) and good times!
I’m not really a shorts person, or a pants person, per se. However, when I bought these pajama shorts from Lane Bryant I had one dream: to wear them in real life, not just to bed. Haha. They are so gorgeous up close, the pink lace overlay is everything.
Just stopping by to post a quick outfit post! This shirt is from Simply Be and is actually a bodycon dress that I made into a crop top - I love how it turned out! The skirt is from Calvin Klein and the shoes are Payless. Unfortunately, all these items are older but seriously isn’t it so much fun to shop your closet sometimes?!
Until next time,
What I Wore: Two-Faced
This shirt is so two-faced - the front is white and the back is black. I love it! I wear this skirt all the time with everything… it is such a favorite I just can’t help it.
I just got back to NYC after spending a long weekend in Maine. The weather was gorgeous so I threw on this little ensemble to jaunt around town!
While I was there I had my hair colored for the first time in ages at a salon called Akari! My colorist, Taylor, killed it with these subtle balayage highlights. I’m obsessed and want more! What do you think of my new hairdo?

What I Wore: Dream Coat
This jacket is straight up, a dream come true. From the length to just the feel of it, it’s divine. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with black and white striped anything… to the point that I think it may be becoming a problem. Guys, I just can’t stop myself from gravitating towards all things Beetlejuice-esque. Does anyone else have this problem?!

What I Wore: Forest Green
Everyone, meet my natural hair texture. It’s a crazy mess but it’s what I’m working with… so I’m into it. Anyway, today I donned these separates that I am equally in love with! This top, from Yours Clothing, is actually very long and I will definitely be wearing it as a dress with leggins very soon. This skirt is the perfect full-bodied piece that can either go casual or dressy. And together they are even better… in my opinion!
It’s been entirely too long since I’ve posted but this cold weather has froze all of my outfit inspiration. My daily wardrobe has been reduced to leggins, boots, sweaters and my giant winter parka. Luckily, yesterday was in the 40’s so I got to ditch the winter coat and don this beauty of a dress!
2013 was definitely a great year! While there were ups and downs, each moment of the last 365 days has taught me something and helped me grow as a person. I am so grateful for each and every one of you who have included me in your life and take time to check out my posts. You mean so much to me.
As the new year rolls in I am geared up to check off new goals on my list and live the best life I can!
For NYE I decided to celebrate the good things to come in this ensemble! The shirt is Lane Bryant and the denim is c/o SWAK Designs. I absolutely fell in love with these pants - I have relatively skinny legs compared to my belly so I have a hard time finding skinny jeans that fit me perfectly but SWAK nailed it!
As for accessories, the necklace is Forever21 and the pointy toe pumps are from Payless!
