I feel like if 1975 and 1995 had a baby, this outfit would be it. The John Lennon-esque sunglasses and front-button mini mixed with the ribbed mock neck and shirt tied at the waist create a lovely mix of the two eras and somehow play very nicely together. I love it when that happens because that’s what makes fashion so fun! :)

P.S. What do you guys think of my shorter ‘do? I chopped off the layers and made it into a classic bob, which I have to say I am definitely into. And I think the next time I go into the salon, which is fairly soon, I am going to go a shade lighter and be bright blonde for summer! xo

Isn’t it fun to look back and see how you wear things depending on the season and weather? The look on the left was taken back in November 2016 and the right was taken this month! I love how swapping out a neutral bootie and a faux fur jacket for a pink heel and a camel car coat, quickly and subtly changed the feel of these two looks. These are sometimes the best kinds of remixes because they are easy and don’t take a ton of brain power. You just swap one piece out for another and there you go! Which outfit is your favorite?

Ok, first off, can we talk about how it’s supposed to get up to 90 degrees in New York today?! But seeing that I have a swimsuit shoot this morning at the The Dream Hotel pool, this hot weather couldn’t come at a better time!

Alright now that I have discussed the weather, onto my outfit. I love anything paired with camel, because it’s just the perfect neutral next to black or gray, and now that I have a new found love for pink (I think going blonde helped) I love the two colors together. But after purveying my closet for more rosy and blush tones, I realized I currently only own three pieces of pink clothing and I’m wearing two out of the three items in this outfit! (The third piece is a bright fuchsia midi skirt that I wore here.) I want to add a bit of subtle color into my wardrobe so I think the next thing I want to add into rotation is this light pink trench, which I recently saw at French Connection…thoughts?

I hosted an event for French Connection on Saturday afternoon and wore this floral feminine dress. (Unfortunately it’s not available online but is definitely still in stores.) I don’t have a ton of girlie dresses like this one so I grabbed my trusty leather jacket and my cage heels to edge it up a bit.

I don’t know about you guys, but I love a heady, musky fragrance all day, every day. I find that I am often drawn to men’s cologne because of their woodsy, heavier scents and usually stay away from anything too sweet or floral. And instead of just wearing this type of perfume in winter, when spicier, pungent fragrances are more “acceptable or appropriate” I love wearing this kind of perfume all year round. This is definitely a personal preference but after chatting about it with different friends and colleagues, I now know I am not alone in this.

As spring turns to summer, and the weather becomes thick and balmy, I find that heavier fragrances match the elements and it becomes my favorite time to spritz a light dusting of a musky scent on my neck, inner elbow, back of knees, and a bit in my hair for good measure. Throughout the day I love how the spicy smell rises with the heat and creates a very heady, aromatic, bold statement that builds throughout the day.

And with that said, here are my top seven sexy scents for spring and summer…

Fragrances listed clockwise:

Oud by Ralph Lauren:

Smoky guaiac wood, spicy incense, and earthy cedar to evoke the spirit of the African savannah.

Santal 33 by Le Labo:

Woody, rich scent opens with violet accord and cardamom.

Edition 02 – Shiso by Goop:

Shiso leaf (also known as perilla) is the unexpected star of this scent, which is slightly spicy/fresh characteristic that’s green, earthy, and delicate all at once. It slowly opens up into spicy greens, crushed stems, and ancient exotic woods.

Windsor by D.R. Harris & Co. Ltd:

Plenty of herbal overtones with some citrus smell. It’s quite complex, changing as the cologne dries and gradually gets a bit of patchouli, vetiver and black pepper to it.

Stash by SJP:

An aromatic woody fragrance that captures light and dark while merging notes of cedarwood atlas, vetiver, and pistachio.

Black Orchid by Tom Ford:

Black truffle, bergamot, black orchid, black plum, noir gourmand accord, patchouli.

Moab by Phlur:

Long pepper, clove, vanilla, jasmine and tonka bean.

You guys know that I love doing outfit remixes so it was a lot of fun creating these three looks around one pair of pants. I bought them from Zara years ago and they have still remained one of my favorite pairs that I own. Unfortunately, they are no longer available but here are two options that are very similar (here and here). I just love how three looks can be so different, yet still have so many similarities. For instance, I used the same hat in all three outfits and in two out of the three looks, I am wearing the same bag, earrings and sunglasses! Through these types of posts, I hope to show you how to create interesting outfits and remind you guys to shop your closet and remix your favorite pieces.

And just for fun, here is how I wore these pants back in February. You can read original post here!


Hi guys! Today’s post is a video I created in partnership with Got2b Volumaniac on how to get voluminous curls. It took me about 20 minutes and all you need are these three products and a curling iron!

Read more below to learn how to get the look! 

Step 1: Start with wet hair and spritz Got2b Volumaniac Root Lifting Spray on your roots and work into hair.

Step 2: Next pump a small amount of Got2b Volumaniac Bodifying Mousse into your hands, rub between your palms and work into your hair starting at your roots making your way down to the tips.

Step 3: Rough blow dry your hair, which will create texture and volume.

Step 4: Then section off your hair and begin curling it with your favorite curling iron. I like my Conair wand from Target, but use whatever tool works best for you. Finger comb the curls to create some separation.

Step 5: Flip your head over and begin spraying your whole head with Got2b Volumaniac Bodify Hairspray.

Et voila! Your’e all done! You should now have the most voluminous curls ever! If you guys have any questions about this tutorial please leave me a comment below!

You can shop all the products here.

Thanks for stopping by and happy Friday! xo

My hair before using Drybar’s Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam. Slightly flat with a hint of oil, some noticeable separation and in desperate need of a pick me up!

I love wearing my hair both straight and curly, so I wanted to show you guys that you can easily use this product on either kind of style without messing it up. Because I have fine hair, but a lot of it, I try not to wash my hair everyday because otherwise it can start to look limp and flat if it’s too “clean.” With that said dry shampoo has become my best friend – I rely on it to give my hair texture and keep it looking fresh. I promise, if you were to take a look into my bathroom cabinet, you would find a million bottles of different dry shampoos because I always love trying out different kinds to see which is my favorite. Case in point, I was very excited to partner with Drybar and try out their new Drybar Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam since I am already a fan of their shops and other products! I love that Detox Whipped adds lift and body to my hair no matter if I’ve styled it curly or straight.

Here we go!

You just need a small amount – a little goes a long way! First shake it well. Then dispense a small amount into your palm and rub your hands together. Use your fingers to apply to the roots and massage gently until the foam disappears completely. 

It’s nuts because it feels like you are putting mousse into your hair and are sure it’s going to mess up whatever hair style you have at the moment, but it doesn’t! In fact, it does the opposite and instead, the foam absorbs excess oils, leaving your hair feeling fresh and clean with no stickiness or crunchiness. As much as I have loved my traditional dry shampoo, I will say, I’m a Detox Whipped convert! I’m obsessed with how there is no powdery residue or inhalation of product when spraying it into my hair. Plus the Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam has a lovely fragrance, so your hair will smell great, just like it was freshly washed even if it’s been a few days. It can be your little secret!

Et voila! The finished look having used the product on both curly and straight hair! I can see such a visible difference in the volume and lift with the curls, and the clean and sleek look with the straight hair. What do you guys think? Are you dry shampoo fans? Would you try Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam? After testing it out and then using it almost everyday for about a week and a half, I can say that I highly recommend it! xo
