Shimma Shimma

With metallic being all the rage this season, there’s no need to save your flashy pieces for after dark. Bring your shimmer and shine out into the daylight for everyone to see. This reflective, multicolored top caught the attention of many. If you’re goal is to stop traffic, I think this trend is for you. Whether it’s silver or gold accents you prefer, you can count on rocking this trend all through the holiday season. It’s almost October ladies. Go get you some SHIMMA-SHIMMA!

My Zumba Outfit

img_5267 img_52880 img_5270 img_5297 img_5288 img_53111img_5273

Coming from a girl that loved being active and danced her whole life, it’s quite ironic that fitness is no longer a part of my daily, weekly or (embarrassingly) monthly routine. I’m unmotivated. I’d like to think my lack of motivation comes from not being able to find a fitness program that suits me. I’m on the hunt for a great dance company/studio in the NYC area if anyone knows any. I would love to take some barre classes for toning but I’m more interested in some freestyle, hip-hop based dance classes where I can get dowwwn, if you know what I mean. In the meantime I love staying active and participating in some Zumba every now and then. It releases endorphins and all the negative energy while still having a blast. Working out shouldn’t be so serious. I highly recommend trying it ladies if you haven’t.

I can’t say goodbye without mentioning how absolutely adorable this work out set it is. I’m so in love with the soft blue shade, detailing and the material…oh my.

The best workout gear that will actually make you want to workout.

P.S. My sweet Finley was very eager to be in these photos and I’m so happy we decided to let him join us. He’s such a natural! Maybe I should sign him up for some doggie modeling. Wink wink.

Love & Pizza

img_55229 img_55203 img_5190 img_55242 img_5193

Love and some delicious New York pizza is all you need. My t-shirt says it all. If I had just these two things for the rest of my life, I think I’d be okay.

If wearing galactic inspired pants scares you, just bring them back down to earth with a casual tee. It softens the look and balances things out. I rocked this look during fashion week but don’t put it past me to rock a similar look every day of the week. Moving to NYC has really opened my eyes to more and more fashion and street style inspiration. No one cares what you wear. Everyone has such an open mind here. Wearing silly space pants on a Sunday is no big deal. I love it.

With Love,

September is in full swing. Can’t even believe October is around the corner. I am so happy to be writing about my first fall look of the year! (Even though the weather is still 80 degrees here in NYC.) I love FALL more than the average pumpkin spice latte drinking girl should. I mean who doesn’t? Layering for fall is where it’s at: Adding scarves, sweaters, cardigans, long sleeved tees…The whole sha-bang. It’s my favorite. Want to know what goes hand in hand with the Autumn season?

F-l-a-r-e-d  D-e-n-i-m.

Oh yes. My prayers were answered. I have FINALLY found the most perfect form fitting, shape hugging, bootylicious, stretchy flared jeans. Sweet baby Jesus, it took me years to find the perfect pair. I love the wash, the shape and the pockets on these pair and you will never believe that I paid under $30 for them. I had to get them altered because they were originally made for a giant but other than that, they fit like a dream. Free People was a having a sale on sale and that’s when I snagged these beauties. I’ve linked similar flared denim below. Get them now while they’re hot hot hot.

Dark NYFW Look

img_5061img_5073 img_5080 img_5050

Dark. Romantic. Bold. Mysterious. This sums up the captivating SS17 collection of Katie Gallagher. I absolutely loved being this grungy girl for the night, dressed up in a very haute couture inspired outfit. It was something completely out of my comfort zone, yet, not at all outside my comfort zone. I would dress up, ready for a runway show every single day if I could.

Supporting smaller designers is the way to go. They work so hard and it amazes me the amount of time and effort that goes into designing and following through with a runway show. Go her. For following her dreams and taking risks. SO INSPIRING.

About Katie Gallagher – Eclipse SS17
Secretive, unknown, mysterious, Black, the darkest color yet the color with no color at all, represents both full absorption and complete absence of light, evil and elegance. Constantly inspired by this hue that has no hue, Katie Gallagher’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, Eclipse, is her third all-black collection, followed by last season’s all black collection, Veiled and her initial collection, S/S 2010, Veil.
Gallagher’s current monochromatic collection relies on textures and subtle details, highlighting her obsessions with gothic architecture, Harry Clarke illustrations and traditional Catholic rituals and symbols. She complements these heavy themes with lightweight fabrics and whimsical embroidery.
Through Eclipse, Gallagher combines Swiss Dot sheer jackets with delicate lace and pony fur, English tulle skirts and tops feature embroidered hearts, dots and crosses. Gallagher pairs gathered, twisted seams with grosgrain ribbons and silver zippers, defining her SS17 collection.

I had such a blast with my bestie, viewing the collection, meeting our Instagram friends for the first time. It was a magical night that ended in lots of laughs and new friends.

With Love,
