This is a bit of a throwback post at this point, but these photos were taken by the talented Alex Ignacio when I was in Santa Fe with my parents, in early September. I had stumbled across this cute place called Modern General, (which is also opening up a new shop in Austin shortly!) and they got in contact with me about doing a fun mini photo and video shoot showcasing the shop. Alex Ignacio is the photographer who works at Narrative Media, and who was kind enough to shoot these photos (as well as the video, which is to come soon). It was just fun to work together on such a short and spontaneous basis especially with such an amazing shop and space as our backdrop.
For those of you that followed me along on my Snapchat, you definitely know about these cowboy boots. My parents and I went to Kowboyz to find a good pair and I ended up walking away with these bad boys. I really can’t wait for it to be a fall and style these with some dark jeans, a white button down and a leather jacket. Yes, yes and yes.
For me, the flowy shirt dress is my go-to when it’s sweltering outside because of its loose fit and the fact that it’s easy to style. So, I thought I would make this week’s Weekly Edit (shop my Nordstrom Anniversary picks here!) all about my favorite lightweight shirt dresses!

P.S. For those of you that aren’t familiar with this series, it focuses on my favorite sites, highlighting my favorite pieces, and will change and rotate every Wednesday with different styles and price points. Happy shopping! xoxo
Finally sharing this romper with you guys, which was one of the items I scooped up during a recent Bloomingdales shopping haul. This one piece is great because it’s so easy to style – you just have to be a bit mindful of the top portion because it falls open, potentially leaving you quite exposed if you’re not careful! My quick remedy was to just slip on a black bandeau (you could also do a tank) and you’re all set!
P.S. I did a fun video shoot featuring this romper plus two other pieces that I recently bought from Bloomingdales, which you can watch here!

Hello, hello! Today’s post is all about these ripped jeans I found at Zara not too long ago. It’s safe to say that I absolutely love them and have been living in them ever since. They are the perfect length, they have the perfect amount of rips and holes in the knees and have just the right amount of 90s style infused into them. I love how they look with a pair of pointy pumps, or with a pair of sleek black leather mules – it makes me feel like I am back in 1996! Anyway, this is a style I can see myself wearing often because it’s effortless and comfortable and can transition easily from casual meetings to happy hour with friends.
Today’s post is all about strapless dress style! I feel like I have a love/hate relationship with strapless dresses because I am alway yanking them up, or I feel like I am baring too much shoulder and chest. But, in the end, I still think the style is really pretty, and therefore cave every time.
With that said, truth be told, I have not worn either of these dresses before, however, I always admire them when I see them hanging in my closet. I guess I have just not had the right occasion to wear them out, but seeing that it’s getting to be really warm in New York and there are a lot of upcoming weddings and parties on my agenda, what better time than to break out the strapless dresses!
I was recently cleaning out my closet and realized that I hadn’t worn this bright neon pink skirt in a few years and never once wore this striped top. I really like both pieces, but for some reason, never found myself reaching for them. As I was holding the two separates in my hand about to toss them into the giveaway pile, I was taken with how much I loved the pattern and colors together. So, I saved them from the “no” pile and created an outfit around them instead!
Hello loves, I hope you all had a great weekend. So before I dive into discussing my outfit, I wanted to share some news regarding my new posting schedule with you guys.
I know that at times my posting schedule can be really random and unpredictable, and that can be super annoying as a reader. Trust me, I know how it feels when my favorite bloggers don’t post on a regular basis and I head to their page expecting new content and then there is nothing. Over the past year, my work schedule and load has changed a lot, so to avoid neglecting the blog from time to time and feeling as if my posting is unreliable, I’ve decided (for now) to post consistently on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
The thought and goal behind this is, I want to be able to create “meatier” posts, which will be more text and photo heavy. So, Tuesday and Thursday will still be about fashion – remixes, how to style guides, shopping hauls, tips and tricks and outfit posts – and Wednesdays will be a post called The Weekly Edit, which will be a shopping roundup of my favorite things at my favorite online sites, and will rotate and change every week. I actually started it last week, which you can check out here!
Lastly, I plan on creating a newsletter to send out to those of you that would like a little reminder when new posts go up. This way, anytime I post, whether it’s a surprise bonus post Monday or Friday or just my regular posts on Tuesday through Thursday, you’ll get an email alert straight to your inbox.
So, I hope you guys are on board with everything, because I am really excited about it and can’t wait to really dial in and focus much more on these dedicated posts. Basically, I just want to be able to make my content better for you guys! Because, let’s be honest. This blog is all about you guys and would be nowhere without you!
Alright, now let’s get down to the outfit! Casey and I had a very packed, eventful past few days, where we hung out with good friends, enjoyed BBQing, brunching and some pool time. It was super hot this weekend too, so I tried to wear pieces that were light, flowy and effortless to style.
Bag: I have gotten so much use out of this bag, which is by Proenza Schouler (I also LOVE this one). It doesn’t look particularly big, but man can it fit a lot of stuff! At any given time, there could be a SLR camera, a pair of flip flops, my wallet plus a small bottle of sunscreen in this bag and it all miraculously fits! This bag isn’t exactly cheap, but when it comes to functionality and this city, I will definitely invest.
Hat: I have been living in my Panama hat from J.Crew as I am sure you have noticed me wearing it a lot on social media. :) It’s just the perfect summer hat – lightweight, stylish and offers great sun coverage.
Dress:Parker sent me this dress a couple of years ago and it always gets a lot of use the minute the temperatures rise into the 80s and 90s. It doesn’t cling to me and actually sort of flutters around me if there is a slight breeze, making me feel like I am getting cooled off.
Shoes: Instead of flats or a more casual shoe, I opted to add a bit of an urban twist to this pretty little summery dress, by slipping on black leather mules. I bought these from Madewell not too long ago and have to say, they are super comfortable!
