Happy Halloween // 1920s Girl


Kicked off my Halloween celebration last Saturday in a 1920s flapper outfit I threw together with some things I already had in my closet and some that I borrowed from work. I always have been a true believer in using your imagination and the things you already have on hand to get into character on such holidays. I've been pretty set on being a flapper girl this year for Halloween, and I'm glad with how this one turned out. I busted out the Charleston a few times too many at Mister H, and I must say that I felt totally in my element. Necklace and earrings by Erickson Beamon.

Dream To Be A Drifter


Late night thoughts. Going to be a drifter and a dreamer tonight. You can be sure about that. These pictures make me think wild thoughts. Halloween tomorrow. Going to be busting out my best Cher from Clueless outfit and dancing the night away. I already feel like I've been celebrating all week, but I'll give it a go one more night. Who else is celebrating?

The Beaten Path // #GetYourBootsDirty


SOREL Slimpack Riding Glow boots, G-Star Raw cargo jacket, Lovers & Friends tee, Forever 21 suede skirt, Lancaster purse, Vanessa Mooney necklace

This month I collaborated with SOREL boots on the brand's #GetYourBootsDirty campaign to show you guys some of the ways I like to wear my boots around my neighborhood. Many of you have probably already seen this look posted around my social networks last week, but here's a better look. Weekends in Brooklyn are always as casual as can be. Sometimes the thought of dressing up is even something I push to the far back realms of my mind. I just want to chill and feel like I'm wearing pajamas, without you know, actually wearing pajamas. That's when my oversized (and I mean OVERSIZED) cargo jacket comes into play. It's so spacious I feel like I can house a family of four inside of it. A peek of belly button, my favorite skirt and some thigh highs make running errands around the hood casual but still BK cool. Ya know how it is. I'm just dying for it to rain in the city just so I can bust out these babies again! They are probably the most comfortable pair of wellies I own. And the ankle length is a tasteful one. The more sock showing the better.

Starburst


Arnhem kimono, Lovers & Friends tank, Forever 21 suede skirt, Modern Vice boots, Free People sunnies

Summer is obviously long gone. And I can't believe these pictures were snapped just a few weeks ago. With winter basically slapping us in the face with its entrance just a few days ago, I've been longing even more so for these Indian Summer type of days that tease us here and there. I miss not wearing tights! But this suede skirt is still quite the staple in my closet. I pair it with plaid or something extra dressy on top. With sneakers or boots. With a blazer or a denim jacket. I'm always into the idea of being leggy in the winter, and this skirt is perfect for just that.

A Brooklyn Photo Diary


A little photo diary from the past few weeks about town, and especially Brooklyn. My part of the city always delights, and my weekends spent not making the trek all the way back into Manhattan still leaves me with a plethora of things to do, places to eat and people to see. From sidewalk sales and flea markets to cooking classes and my favorite cold brew cafe, everything and anything is over on this side.   

Oh and check out my lovely world wall decal from the wonderful people at Urbanwalls. Now I can wake up each morning to all the places I want to see. One can always dream.

Roar


Lovers & Friends sweater, Zara skirt, RD Style faux leather jacket, Vanessa Mooney necklace, Natalie & Dylana Suarez x Modern Vice Chloe boots, Rachel Zoe bag

Picked up this little black skirt during NYFW and ever since then it's quickly turned into one of my top outfit building staples. Not sure how I survived without one for so long. It can be dressy for night with something floaty and sheer on top or played down with a graphic sweater like this. I dig the appeal of the peplum shaped flare at the bottom. Anything that draws attention to the legs is perfectly fine with me. 

Snapped this look up quickly after work in Bryant Park, just a few blocks from my office. One of my favorite people watching spots in the city. It absolutely glows during Twilight and the trees that line the walkways seem to come to life. My heart flutters every time I'm here just as much as the very first day I visited.

Sister Sister // Photo Shoot with Emma


Not to long ago, my sister and I shot with the super talented and lovely photographer Emma Kepley. We did a sister-sister themed photo shoot with her, focused on our personal style and the way my sis and I sort of "bounce" off one another. I couldn't live without my little Nat; she's my best friend! Seriously, we have both grown so much together throughout our years and have supported each other so much when we both moved to the east coast over two years ago. My beautiful sister Natalie inspires me each and every day with her effortlessness and good naturedness. We always laugh together and we just get each other on just about everything. There really is no other person that I feel like I share the same brain with. Thanks Natalie for being my best bud and partner in crime, and thank you Emma for capturing us in our favorite city together. We had so much fun bopping around from location to location this fine Sunday afternoon, which ended with Mexican food to go along with some good old boy talk! This is just part 1, so look out for more to come! Check out Emma's photo blog here
