move your {lee} // the american dream denim

it’s hard to truly explain in words how amazing this day was!  my bestie, amanda, and i woke up extra early to experience the first snow {of the day} in brooklyn.  it was beautiful so definitely worth it & we felt extra productive with the entire day ahead of us.  we grabbed cappuccinos, split an almond croissant and strolled through our favorite neighborhood.  these are the best kind of days.  even though my east coast fox & i were totally twinning, we actually have very different style.  and i love that!  but one thing we can always agree on is the necessity of a great pair of black jeans.  these “dream jeans” from lee honestly feel like cozy leggings on the inside, but they have enough durability to dress up any outfit.  we ended up spending the entire day in them, including alyssa‘s birthday party over 12 hours later.  i love something that can transition from day to night… it’s so important in new york since we’re always on the go!

according to wikipedia [i know, i know – reliable source], boho-chic is a style of fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences.  that, i totally agree with.  but for me, “boho” is more than a style of fashion, it’s an attitude.  when i wear a boho-chic dress, like this flowy beauty from h&m, i suddenly feel different.  much more relaxed, much more easy going & free spirited, and much more cool.  i’m all about outfits that release & attract those good vibes.

elevated // {graffiti} diaries

don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love new york city.  but sometimes the city streets can be a scary place… filled with rats, old pizza, & cigarettes.  my recent shoe purchases provide a functional yet stylish solution: flatforms!  sandals or sneakers, i love the elevation & comfortability.  a little michael jackson sass goes a long way!
