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.

Feel it in the air

Slowly but surely the trees and flowers are starting to bloom in NYC and you can feel it in the air that spring is here. It felt nice to wonder around my neighborhood in this outfit, I'm all about wearing denim this spring and light layers. I especially love how this denim vest just puts the whole outfit together.
What are some spring trends are you trying this spring?

Long time no see

Hey guys, look an outfit post!
It's been a while right? I'm sure some of you guys are wondering what was taking me so long? Well there's a couple of answers to this question.
First off, it was freezing in NYC this year. It was very hard for me to be outside more than five minutes to take pictures and try to look cute while wearing 10 pounds of clothes, so trust me none of you guys would have liked to see that.
Second, my blog just turned FIVE years old last month (it's kind of hard for me to believe) and I felt like it needed a change. So these past couple of months I've been brainstorming some new ideas I want to add to this blog to make it more fun and have more content for you guys to enjoy. So you'll be seeing those features in the upcoming weeks!
And third, I just needed a break to get inspired and motivated again to start doing this whole blogging thing again. As you can imagine doing something for five years can get pretty mundane so I think a break was much needed so I could get excited about blogging again.

So now that I have gotten that off my chest, lets talk about the clothes!

I'm wearing new Spring 2014 Warby Parker glasses
(If you're in need of a pair, it's a no brainer to go with Warby- super affordable and totally cute.)
H&M denim dress
Karibu Kikoy sarong (worn as a scarf- each one that is sold proceeds go to building maternal hospital in East Africa!)
Cat Footwear Spring 2014 Oxfords -Check out there stuff, you're in for a sweet surprise!

Here are some similar options...
