Although the summer tans eventually fade (sadly), I want to keep mine for as long as possible. With this tropical summer not being to friendly to "tanners" like me, I take advantage of every sunny day I can get. Last summer, I wrote two blog posts about my tanning routine/ my reasonings behind it (because it's a pretty unusual, but effective one for sure). Beach tans are one of the best type of tans, and they last the longest! Here are some natural ways to keep your tan longer.
With everyone going on vacations soon (including me), it’s time to prepare for vacation by doing a little shopping. And what screams “beach” like a good maxi dress?! I’m not planning on going over the top with my maxi dresses. I think the simpler, the better, so why spend a lot of money on a maxi dress? Lucky for you, I’ve found nine gorgeous maxi dresses perfect for vacation for under $70! Click to read more!
I decided to dedicate this post to all of the college freshman who are looking for dorm decor inspiration! I know for me, it’s super overwhelming with what colors to chose, if there’s a theme, matching with your roommates theme (or in my case, waiting until the beginning of August to even meet my roommate). I’ve been stalking a few places for just the right colors and I am going to share my plan for my dorm room!
Starting today, I will be working at Anthropologie and a personal stylist, and I'm so excited! This is going to be my first job in retail and I'm so excited to be able to work in a store as cool as Anthropologie. Before getting this job, I never really shopped there for a number of reasons. After getting hired at the Short Hills Mall, I started looking at their clothes and the different styles that they had, and there were some pretty cute stuff! Keep reading if you want to see some of what I think are the cutest Anthropologie styles!
First off, Congrats and happy summer to those who just graduated! As of Tuesday, I am officially a college student going to Marist college in Poughkeepsie, New York to fashion merchandising. I am so excited to go there in less than two months and meet all new people. This blog post is all about my graduation and my summer plans, so if your sun tanning by a pool or hanging out in the sun, enjoy reading this while your relaxing!
Gov ball is a chance to wear outfits that you wouldn’t wear on a regular basis-which is (partially) why I’m so excited for it! I have been planning out my outfits even before I actually bought my ticket! Today, I’m going to show you some of my top favorite Gov Ball.
One of my favorite things about being a blogger is that the blogger world is like a community; everyone is constantly helping each other and giving each other positive feedback on their successes. Not only is it important to connect with other people on social media, but it's also important to stay up to date on what other people are writing about as well. They can give you ideas for what to write about and you can learn a lot from what other people are doing to keep their audience interested. This blog post is all about my favorite bloggers that have inspired my looks, style, and, most importantly, the content that I write about.
I have always had obsessions when it comes to fashion. I went through a phase where I was obsessed with dresses, then headbands (thanks to Gossip Girls), then rompers, tops, bodysuits, shoes, bracelets and basically everything else from clothes to hair accessories to jewelry. My newest obsession is the layered jewelry look. I'm not sure why I've become obsessed with this now, but its come just in time for summer!
If you haven’t heard of the the app Finery, you should read this first of all. If you have, you are part of the fashion forward technology that is just becoming popular. To sum it up in a sentence, Finery is an app that allows you to access your ENTIRE closet from your phone. This allows you to plan out your outfits for the week with a press of a few buttons. The main purpose for using Finery is to get people to shop from inside their closet, and to become more conscious of the clothes they are buying versus the clothes they already have.
Gov Ball season is officially here, and that mean you need to get your Gov ball OOTD! For the first time, I'm going to be attending the Gov Ball festival at Governors Island and I'm so excited! I'm going to the Sunday one, where artists like Eminem, Anime, Quinn XCII, Khalid, and many more will be preforming. I am currently on the search of the cutest festival outfits, and I thought I would share some of what I think are some cute outfits. I found so many adorable outfits that would look amazing for Gov Ball. For those who are going to Gov Ball and don't know what to wear, or those that just want to see some cute spring outfits, keep scrolling down!
It is officially prom season and that means every girl out there is looking for the perfect dress. They have to buy a pretty dress, one that no other girl has in their grade, get shoes, have their make up done, then their hair, AND the nails (BOTH manicure and pedicure), all while making sure they've spent weeks if not months getting that prom perfect body at the gym. That sounds like a whole lot of work to go to a dance that lasts 4 hours. The whole fiasco starts with the dress. Here are some of the most popular prom dress trends.
The countdown to prom has officially started. I've got my dress. I've got my shoes. I've (almost) got what hair and make up style I'm going to do. One of the most important factors, for me at least, is to get into shape for prom. This involves much more than just going to the gym everyday, it means I have to think of a healthy prom diet. As much as it pains me not being able to go to Magic Fountain for ice cream or eating Chipotle for dinner, I want to really challenge myself to see if I can maintain a healthy diet for prom. You'll notice a trend in the foods that I share today, they are require minimal effort to make, but they are super healthy!
In the fashion world, vintage and customized anything gives the customer a special attachment to the product because they feel it's made especially for them, which it is. For high school and college students, it has become a huge trend to get, or make, vans sneakers with customized designs based on the college/ University that the person is or will be going too! Read more about my customized Vans!
There’s nothing like going into the city for the afternoon, or the weekend. My favorite thing to do in New York City (besides shopping) is eating at the delicious restaurants! No matter where you are, there’s always some great places to enjoy some food. Here are ten of my favorite places to eat for lunch....
Here is a little video that I made for my week in Amsterdam! I show you the behind the scenes of shopping, tours, the streets of Amsterdam and the Kingpins show. For anyone who doesn't know what Kingpins is, Kingpins is specifically a denim trade show where mills get to talk to retail brands. The theme of this year's Kingpins is transparency. Along with my behind the scenes of Kingpins, I also show my favorites shopping excursions! Enjoy :)
As you can probably see on my Instagram, I’m in Amsterdam for the week! I’m having a blast being here with all of the canals, delicious food, and different places to explore!! I noticed some MAJOR trends for Spring Amsterdam fashion that I wanted to share. These trends are some that I saw throughout Amsterdam.
After spending my spring break in Barbados, I've come back all nice and tan. I had such a fun time in Barbados that I thought I would make a little vlog about my vacation. I tried to capture as much video as I could of the activities that I did and some tanning tips. I hope you enjoy my video!
Besides doing my typical activity of tanning in the beach for the day, I also got to doing other cool activities. Barbados is filled with so many fun activities like snorkeling, exploring rain forests, exploring caves, looking at all the fish in a glass bottom boats, and going to the depths of the ocean in a submarine.
To spice things up a little bit, I decided to make my first Vlog! This Vlog is dedicated to what I'm going to be bringing on my trip to Barbados. My packing process itself is a very hefty process, considering what factors go into the vacation. Instead of me explaining everything on here, check out my video and you'll see all the cute outfits that I'm bringing!
As part of my preparation of spring break, I am trying to get into shape for the beach! As I train long and hard during the week, I decided to record all of my daily workouts to show you guys. At your request, I’m turning this post into a video tutorial of workouts for abs/core, legs and arms. Feel free to take some of my favorite workouts outs and put them into your daily workout routine!
Deciding what to bring for a spring break takes a lot of effort and planning. If you are anything like me, you plan on wearing more than one outfit a day, and you are always prepared with a back up one just in case. Bathing suits and casual outfits are always fun to shop for, but shopping for evening wear is something I live for! If you are going someplace warm like me, here are 5 evening looks that would look great!
This year for spring break, I will be going on two trips (which means double the shopping!) I am dedicating this post to the best places for spring break attire, including bathing suits, shoes, sunglasses, and clothes!
Say you were given $50 to buy whatever you want for a certain occasion, would you go for quality or quantity? That is something that I have to consider when planning out my wardrobe for my vacations. This year, I am traveling for two weeks and have some strategic shopping and packing to do because it's two completely different places and wardrobes to plan! This post is all the debate that I, along with so many other people, have on whether to go quality or quantity.
I’m sure a lot you of have heard about the new Amazon Echo Look, where you snap a picture of outfits and then it can do anything from helping you decide what to wear, to spotting the latest trends that will fit your style. There are other fashion tech tools to help you look your best and organize your outfits. Now Finery, an online app and website with a tagline of The Wardrobe Operating System, has even more options which links to online purchases and bloggers. It's your own personal stylist!
Many people have asked me where I bought my jeans or if I drew the design on the jeans myself. Well the answer is no I did not draw on my jeans (I'm not that artistically gifted). I actually bought them at Free People's Holiday sale - I've gotten a lot of use out of them! Not only do they look amazing and super artsy, but the fit is amazing. Read more about why you should shop Free People's jeans!
On Saturday, I went to Soho to shop and go for brunch. I spent the entire morning shopping at some of the coolest stores, ones that are not typically seen in Manhattan. I topped off the day by going to one of the healthiest buffet style restaurants ever. Keep reading to see all the awesome stores I went into, a super healthy dining option, and some key photo ops in Soho!
As you guys know, I love sharing trend reports with you guys because I think it's important to know what to buy ahead of time to stay trendy. This trend report is going to be focused on the fashion forward denim trends for this spring. Here are the top 5 denim trends, along with affordable retailers to get these trends from!
Some of my favorite online picks are the ones that I bought online from the direct to consumer retailers. The best thing about shopping at a direct to consumer brands is that you know you won't be getting the same clothes as someone else. Saying that, I was looking for tops that would not be found in the more well known brands.
It's officially the start of a new month, which means it's time to shop till you drop! Although it was tough not being able to buy anything for 31 days, it was a super good cleanse to start off the new year. When I had free time, I would look at some of my favorite stores and be surprised at how I didn't feel like I really needed that sweater or pair of jeans; I made do with what I had in my closet. Since February has come around, I've been shopping A LOT, and here is what I bought!
Instagram is one of the greatest outlets for exchanging ideas and connecting around fashion. It's been an amazing way for bloggers, like myself, to show off our fashion style and connect with our audience. During NYFW, I was able to listen to a talk with WWD's style director, Alex Badia, and Director of fashion at Instagram, Eva Chen. Instagram has changed fashion for the future and I learned the answers to the questions that everyone wants to know.
