Hello!

It wasn't easy trying to stay warm in this outfit, but hey a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do!
Honestly though, shout out to all the New York bloggers (or anywhere that's freezing, really) out there looking fierce in this cold weather, It's definetly not easy. 

Old Navy (boys) baseball jacket
H&M knit hat
Clark's booties
Brahmin clutch


And like I said in my previous post, I'm doing an exciting collaboration with New York Color and I will be featuring beauty looks on my blog now for you guys.
For todays make-up I've decided to go with a classic natural look.
I used City Proof Lip Primer which helps my lips feel nice and smooth
City Proof Twistable- Parsons Pink
BB Creme Bronze Radiance- 004 Light that helps protect my skin, moisturizes it and is super easy to apply
Blush in Central Park Pink that I seriously wear everyday...
HD Automatic Eyeliner to line the top of my lids in 005 Deep Purple
and to finish it off with my Big Bold Angel Lash Mascara.

See you lovelies in my next post!

City Laundry X New York Color



Hello lovelies!
I'm starting the New Year with an awesome new collaboration with New York Color! I shot this web commercial with them back in May and I'm so happy to finally share it with you guys! We shot in a couple of different locations around NYC (recognize any of them?) and you get to take a little peak into my world and hear my thoughts about this awesome city. 
So as far as the collab- I'll be mixing beauty with fashion instead of just having my blog only focused on fashion. Which to me is exciting because beauty is kind of a new world to me and I'm excited to explore it with you guys. It'll be an interesting to say the least and I hope you guys enjoy and stick around for more to come!

Welcome






Welcome Fall & welcome to my apartment!
Here's a little peak into my home as I get ready to class and some of my go to pieces for long days at school.


 Old Navy overalls (super comf!)
Urban Outfitters t-shirt 
Vans slip on sneakers (perfect for long days and walking around campus.)
Harveys seatbelt backpack (also comfortable and super stylish, I get plenty of compliments.)
Larsson & Jennings watch (have to stay on schedule and a trusty watch is a must!)


I'm currently in my last semester at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the pressure is starting to weigh in on me. Balancing school, my internship (at Nicole Miller!!), home-work, boyfriend, part time job/blogging has not been an easy task and sometimes it's very easy for me to get overwhelmed. Sometimes I just have to take a step back and put things into perspective. I realize some of the things I've accomplished and the things I'm about to accomplish and suddenly I can kind of see a light at the end of the tunnel. Every late night studying and early mornings, I know is going to be worth it and I'm determined to finish my college career on a positive note. I know this post was long over due but sometimes things have to take the back seat for a bit... so I'd like to thank all my readers that have followed me through my journey and continue to check on this little blog every once in a while. It truly means a lot, you guys are the best and there's definetly more to come for y'all!

My Teen Vogue Back-to-School Shoot!


Hey Lovelies!
So as some of you may already know, this past Spring I had the awesome opportunity to work with Teen Vogue and be one of their models on their Back-To-School Saturday's campaign. When they asked me if I wanted to be a part of it how could I say no!? The campaign featured a couple of trends that will be sure to make any girl heading back to school look super stylish. My favorite trend is "Field Trip" because of the pretty pastel colors and the school girl vibe- that's basically all I ever dream of! The campaign was featured in the August issue (the one with Kesha on the cover) and it is also available on the Simon Mall website.  It was loads of fun working with Teen Vogue and the Simon Mall team and even though I was the oldest model there (both are still in high school and I'm about to graduate college!) I felt young and girly! Keep an eye out for more pics and details at you local Simon Mall and make sure to stop by if the tour stops near you!

Also there's a behind the scenes video of the photo shoot with some extra styling tips from Teen Vogue's fashion market editor Mary Kate Steinmiller below!

summer in the city






Hey guys! 
So I'm one of those people who LOVE to wear sneakers in the summer. I don't know.. Some people find that weird or uncomfortable but I don't! I find that these Keds are the perfect summer sneakers because they have these cute cut-outs which make them feel airy and of course they are super comfy! I loved pairing them with my high waisted flared denim and off the shoulders frilly top to give it a laid back 70's vibe.
