{boho} in bushwick

photo2

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!

{neutrals} are always in season

if there’s one thing i’ve learned about style since living in new york, it’s that a black ensemble always works.  but now that summer is upon us, it’s all about bright whites.  in my opinion, neutrals are always in season.  and neutrals can always be paired together.  my favorite way to wear monochrome is in different textures.  i think a white sweater knit + a sequin woven jogger + a nude patent leather pump creates interest without distracting.  this can be done in a variety of ways, but neutrals feel effortless.  happy viewing, let me know what you think!

all that glitters // it’s all in the {details}

cutouts.  black & white.  gold.  what’s not to love?!  my thoughts exactly.  i picked up this crop top & skirt set without even a second thought.  it’s from my chic cousin Caroline [who I like to think of as my southern counterpart]’s online boutique.  i wore this for holiday festivities, as it worked well layering under tights as is pictured below.  but i look forward to also wearing it this spring.  i think the crop top would look so fresh n so clean clean with a pair of black jeans, white jeans, or even a flared skirt.  peep how i styled the outfit for cold weather weekends, as well as mix & match spring outfit inspo below!

stand out // with {city seat}

I recently discovered a fresh & functional new brand, City Seat.  I had to share this with you guys because they’re born & bred in Brooklyn, made in America, and can make our daily lives just a little bit easier.  My favorite part about it?  The personalization.  Right now, they’re the only personalized bike seat cover on the market.  To quote Ian from What A Girl Wants, “why fit in when you were born to stand out?”  Word, Ian.  Check it out below.

feathers + leathers

winter can take us into a slump.  whether it be our gym routines, social lives, or our wardrobes that suffer- it really takes a toll!  that’s why i’ve tried to snag a few out-of-the-ordinary pieces that i can wear in the winter.  pieces that bring back that fuzzy feeling (& even feel fuzzy!)  pieces that add a little fun back into the woes of winter.  i think it worked – see for yourself below.  i fully embrace the RBF all day, but sometimes you just can’t take yourself too seriously!

twirl tuesday // a {bold} color becomes a cool accent

IMG_5129

on my tippy toes, can you tell i’m ready to twirl?!  i’m giving off all sorts of vibes – & my mischievousness can’t be hidden from the camera.

the bold red becomes a cool accent.  add the DIY bow belt & I’ve created a fresh take on a classic look.  as a New York City kitty, I can’t stress enough how much I love black.  black & white is about as classic as it comes.  but I have a penchant for adding just enough flair to make an ensemble my own.
