I AM MOVING TO NEW YORK

I AM MOVING TO NEW YORK

Hi everyone!

This post is going to be a special one, and I can’t wait to finally talk about something so amazing that has been going on in my life.

It’s not often that you are confident on your career path as a mere elementary schooler, while spending your days learning basic multiplication and addition. However, ten-year-old me was an ambitious one, sketching designs, writing elaborate stories, and telling anyone and everyone around her that she was going to work in fashion one day.

I am grateful to that fearless young girl for leading to me to my present career path, now at 22 years old. 

Just like many soon to be college graduates, I realized rather quickly that graduation was creeping up on me (May 9th to be specific) and figuring out what my future was going to hold was probably something I should think about (just little things, ha)

For as long as I can remember, I knew that I would one day call New York my home. I would have a closet (ok maybe a storage unit at this point) that would impress even Carrie Bradshaw, a shoe collection that would call for some much needed therapy sessions, and I would make all of this a reality if it was the last thing I did! So, what do you know- its all happening.

When I say this all happened on a whim, I am not exaggerating. Within a short three week time span I went from no post graduation plans, to three back to back interviews in New York, to a job offer, to a start date, to a new apartment, and that is just the beginning. How I have not completely lost it yet, is truly beyond me. Ok- maybe I have… just a little. 

My new job is for a company that is near and dear to my heart, French Connection. While studying abroad I interned for French Connection’s sister company called Great Plains U.K. To say I am reminiscent would be a bit of an understatement! I am going to be working in wholesale with various department store accounts! I swear just in that single day, so many of my dreams came true, and I am still not over it.

So, your girl is moving to New York, which I have said aloud so many times now and each time it doesn’t feel real. I will be moving to Long Island City to be specific, in the most beautiful apartment! Naturally, one of the only things on my mind is getting to the decoration phase of the moving. I cannot wait to play and make it a cozy little home. Did I mention my BFF Amanda is my new roommate? Still not over it. Amanda- if you are reading this.. I LOVE YOU.

So many decor/inspo posts to come and I AM SO EXCITED I CANNOT EVEN CONTAIN MYSELF.

Cannot wait to take some amazing pictures in the city and share my journey all on the blog along the way. Thank you so much for reading:) xx

 

 

back to basics

back to basics

Welcome back to this weeks post! I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend along with a joyous Passover! This week is another crazy one, heading back to New York tomorrow for a little something special. Still weary of sharing because I don’t want to jinx it, but soon enough, hopefully! 

I’m thinking of doing some blog posts talking about positivity and manifestation, would anyone be interested in something like that? I find that positivity/optimism is a topic I have most definitely battled with, but have worked through quite a bit. Sometime’s when life gets a little hectic we tend to become overcome with anxiety and emotion, thinking these problems are bigger than us. However- they aren’t, and it that has been such a rewarding realization. Anyway, let me know if you would be interested:)

Today- we are going back to basics.

When I say I wear gym clothes to school everyday, I am REALLY not exaggerating. Anyone else? However, those random days where I decide to throw on something other than Lululemon’s, I still require comfort. One of my favorite items I have ever invested in from Urban Outfitters, are these black velvet overalls. They. Are. Everything. Whether I throw on a T-shirt, mesh long sleeve, chunky sweater, the options are endless when it comes to styling them!

Thought I would show a quick outfit of the day that is effortless, simple, yet still put together. Hope you enjoy!

What are your absolute go to’s when it comes to looking put together, with little effort? Would love to hear about your favorite outfits!

Thanks for reading peeps. Can’t wait for some fun posts coming up! 

So about Soho! Outfit of the day

So about Soho! Outfit of the day

New York we meet again, and quite possibly for a longer time next go around (hehe, big things happening.. but too early to share). 

A couple weeks ago I randomly applied for Jimmy Fallon tickets, and what do you know.. I GOT THEM! So, I called up my two best frands, got some brunch, hit the town.. and obviously had a photoshoot in the New York streets. I mean… you and I both know that every single street in New York makes for the perfect backdrop. Maybe that’s why I love it so much?

Below are some of my favorite photos we took. I remember walking the streets this day feeling so incredibly inspired. Do you ever just witness your manifestations fall into place right in front of your eyes? Well they are, and although scary.. it is so exciting!

I would also like to thank my friend Amanda for lending me this fabulous faux pink fur jacket. It was everything I needed and then some. 

 

On to the outfit of the day! Outfit details located below the first photo:) Enjoy!

Can you tell I like this place?! Thinking about doing an updated skincare routine for my next post.. thoughts? 

 

 

Welcome to, the girls room

Welcome to, the girls room

PSA: If you didn’t understand the reference in the title… i’m disappointed in you. 

Oh hey there! Happy Tuesday peeps! Coming at ya live, with a new fashion post featuring only affordable clothing! Side note- I have found that most of the time, the exact pieces I am wearing are no longer available.. so in that case I do some research to find similar styles! Not to mention, most of the time they are on sale for KILLER deals, which pains me considering I most likely paid full price. 

Anywayyyyy….

Before I move on I want to quickly make an announcement about my new blogging schedule. In the past, I would only post when I had time, which lead to inconsistency and lack of posts. NO MORE OF THAT NONSENSE AM I RIGHT. So, as of now every Tuesday I will have a new blog post out! The topics will vary from fashion, beauty, health, fitness, you name it. I am really looking forward to all of these fun posts to come, and I hope you are too! Also, suggestions would be more than appreciated!

On to the post!


 

When planning this shoot, my friend Nicole and I wanted vibrant and fun scenery. We wanted neon signs, fun backdrops, the whole nine, and we got just that! All of these photos were taken in Wildwood New Jersey, which if you have ever been there, i’m sure this will make a lot of sense.

I remember running to the mall the day before this shoot thinking, I want something trendy yet affordable to make for some really cool photos. More times than not, you really do not have to break the bank at Urban to get the trendy look you’re going for. I’m living proof!

SEEING STARS

SEEING STARS

 

Months ago while scrolling aimlessly through Instagram, I saw a blogger wearing a large puffy star jacket, just like this one. From that moment on.. I WAS A GIRL ON A MISSION. 

I did some research and continued to find diddly squat. Bummer right? Wrong. 

I will never forget the moment I spotted this beautiful lady hanging ever so perfectly on a rack in the middle of Bloomingdales. My vision had come to life, and I was ELATED. 

With a jacket like this one, you can really do anything. I know, that sounds crazy… I mean, look at it. However, a statement piece is a girls best friend because it completes the look for you, requiring minimum effort. How nice is that!?

OUI, OUI!

OUI, OUI!

Do you ever come across a piece of clothing that you know is SO questionable, but you also kinda need it? That was this shirt. A while back I stumbled upon this Sacajawea inspired silk top and grabbed it for about 8 dollars at a thrift store on South Street here in Philadelphia. While it sat in my closet collecting dust for quite some time, I knew that one day I was going to wear it and love it. So- that is what I did!

Fun fact- If you look closely enough, you’ll see several tears streaming down my face considering it was about 20 degrees this day #neverforget.
