Kenzo wayfarer sunglasses // åland floral striped tee // Forever 21 maxi dress (worn as midi skirt) // Céline pony-hair espadrille // rag & bone x Intermix Pilot backpack // Vintage cage bangle // Handmade rings via bib + tuck // Marc by Marc Jacobs watch }

Sincerest apologies for the past few weeks of hiatus. Life really does have a way in sweeping you up straight into its craziness, doesn’t it? Anyway, it’s been hectic with a lot of new beginnings – most notably, I’ve started a new job! I’m so excited to be part of Roc Nation on their digital marketing team, and to truly explore a different industry from the ground up. The entertainment world is certainly very different from the fashion realm, but what is life if not to venture outside of your comfort zone? Here’s to hoping that I’ll be rocking some Tom Ford someday on a deserving occasion. Jay didn’t make that song for nothing, right?

So I’m doing a 180° here in New York City, and I’ve made a few wardrobe adjustments (and additions) that reflect the brand new journey I’m so proud to be undertaking. Been seriously crushing on anything Kenzo these days – these new sunglasses are sure to be among the first of many new acquisitions. Picked up a floral tee from åland, a casually cool boutique in Hong Kong originally hailing from South Korea that carries indie Korean designers, which pretty much fit perfectly with my “new season, new beginnings” life stage as of late. A slouchy maxi dress, handily turned into a trendy midi skirt thanks to layering, is perfect for that laidback luxe look I’ve been trying to achieve these days. Add my new favorite It bag (this rag & bone backpack is flawless), and the ensemble has just hit all the right notes: breezy enough for the hot summer days, stylish enough for the office, relaxed enough for happy hour and drinks.

Also, I’m pretty sure this is the longest post I’ve written to date. There really is always a first time for everything.

Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses // Priory of Ten sleeveless leather sweatshirt c/o CREAM STYLE // Vintage asymmetrical hem dress, worn as skirt // River Island ankle boot // Zimmermann black/silver clutch // Marc by Marc Jacobs watch // Christian Lacroix bull bracelet // Handmade assorted gold rings via bib + tuck // Wren + Glory snake hand cuff via bib + tuck }

As temperatures rise, so do my hemlines… Kind of. Decided to experiment with a boxier, unexpected silhouette, and this leather top from my favorite Priory of Ten is all kinds of insane in the best way possible. All black always works, but it works even better when clashing buttery leather with fluttery hems. Also can’t get enough of this Zimmermann beaut I picked up at Tokio Joe earlier this season. It’s structured and is way roomier than you’d think, and the metallic detail is so simple but so chic. Slipped on some animal motifs for accessories, and voilà – the perfect gallery-hopping outfit.

Nº42: To The Max

Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses // T by Alexander Wang jersey maxi dress via bib + tuck // McQ by Alexander McQueen denim/leather clutch // Rebecca Minkoff studded sneakers, bangle, silver chain ring, stacked rings // Topshop layered necklace // Marc by Marc Jacobs watch }

A breezy afternoon in the West Village calls for an equally breezy maxi dress – picked up this T by Wang gem on bib + tuck and I couldn’t be more pleased with its forgiving and comfortable silhouette. Played up the low-key vibe with beachy waves, high-top sneakers, and clutch (both studded to add a bit of an edge) and threw on a layered necklace for good measure. It’s as basic as a summer outfit can get, and one can do no wrong in a maxi dress that makes you look longer and leaner.

Nº41: Once in a Blue Moon

Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses // NOMIA blue sleeveless silk shirt c/o CREAM // Vince leather sweatpant // Chanel vintage flap bag // Givenchy suede and cork sandal // Handmade chain handpiece via bib + tuck // Marc by Marc Jacobs watch // Aldo, Rebecca Minkoff, JewelMint assorted rings }

Once in a while, I’ll feel like deviating from my usual black/grey/white ensembles. Thankfully, CREAM was gracious enough to indulge my passing fancy with this incredible top on another one of my citywide adventures – this time all over from a graffiti wall in Chinatown to the rooftop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This saturated blue is as beautiful as it is eye-catching, and I can’t get enough of the slouchy-sexy silhouette. To maintain my tomboy equilibrium, I decided to balance out the girly silk and classic flap bag with some serious leather and chains, finished off with my go-to summer sandal. So happy I found this incredible handpiece on bib + tuck. Makes you look twice, doesn’t it? Oh, and while you’re busy tucking cool finds over there, click over to my featured Q&A to read (even more) about me, and shop my closet!
