Nº60: Portraits in Germany

IMG_9314 IMG_9316 IMG_9318 IMG_9319 IMG_9320 IMG_9321 IMG_9322 IMG_9197

{ In no specific order :: Kenzo sunglasses // Helmut Lang graphic sweater // Vince heavy knit sweater // Uniqlo x Lemaire mock-neck sweater // J Brand black skinny jean // Nike Air White Huaraches // Adidas Originals Superstar in Red // Aigle parka // Rihanna x Stance socks }

At what point are you allowed to call a new place home? I’ve been jetting back and forth from Germany a whole bunch recently, having started with a two-week cross-country roadtrip over the holidays – and am slowly but surely falling in love with the country. I got to briefly experience 10 cities – portraits/snapshots from Stuttgart, Bonn, Munich, and Hamburg shown above – and I can’t wait to immerse myself in more. Berlin, I’m coming for you (again) next. Bis dann!

On a totally different note: I realize I’ve been shifting this blog to more of a visual journal of sorts – which fits my lifestyle way more than actively trying to make sure I capture every single outfit I ever wear. Come swing by my Instagram for more updates.

Nº59: Boy Meets Girl




Kenzo sunglasses // Favela long-sleeved men’s shirt, worn as dress c/o Favela // Izzue duster coat // Alexander Wang Freja ankle lace-up booties // Marc by Marc Jacobs watch // Nike FuelBand }

We all know how the story goes: boy meets girl, girl steals boy’s clothes. Duh. Luckily, I have a boy who is totally okay with me doing that… Sometimes. Thanks Favela for kitting me (well, him) out in what originally was just supposed to be a cheeky photo!

(I’m keeping the shirt.)

Nº58: Athleisure


Kenzo sunglasses, sneakers // Sandro crop top // Izzue foldover cropped pant // Topshop pendant // Marc by Marc Jacobs  watch // Nike FuelBand }

Because who needs SoulCycle when I can just put on a similar getup and pretend to be glam on the Upper East Side? Also, yes, that is a new hair color situation.

Nº57: Concrete Jungle






Kenzo sunglasses // Alexander Wang mesh cape // Bailey 44 perforated leather tank // Vintage asymmetrical dress worn as skirt // Senso leather and canvas sneaker // rag & bone x Intermix leather backpack // Marc by Marc Jacobs watch }

Who says black and white can’t work for summer? I’ve had this Wang cape for years now and it still never fails to make a statement – it’s over-the-top, yet still subdued enough for a casual outfit. Plus, I’ve been wearing these Senso babies so much these days that they’re fraying at the back – which is such a pity because the canvas stripes are such a cute accent on what would otherwise be your regular white sneaker. Also, side note – my hair no longer looks like this, but rather is now an ombré of brown, grey, and black. I’ll get around to posting pictures of that. Eventually.

Nº56: Leap of Faith

It’s been a (cold) few months since I last posted, and it’s pretty telling how rough this past winter was – with the title of my last post being “Snow Bunny.” With the weather warming up, though, I’ve been starting to get more inspired again (having inspiring people in my life is certainly helping me on that front), and I’ve been taking many leaps of faith, big and small. First up, I swung by Washington DC again, almost exactly a year after my trip last year. I missed the cherry blossoms yet again – I seem to have terrible luck with timing there – but it was pretty nice to actually get to explore the city a little more this time with people I love. On a totally unrelated note, these Senso sneakers are actually giving me life right now. They go with everything and are the epitome of understated chic. I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear them to death before 2015 ends.
