winter basics

This season, make a statement with embellishments and detailing. It's all about making outerwear and footwear stand out while keeping the rest everything else simple. I'm a huge fan of keeping the base of an outfit clean and using third and fourth pieces to really make things pop. However, it's nice to return to the classics every once in a while. For a modern twist on the turtleneck, turn to a heavy knit with patch-worked stitching, or a crew neck with fluted sleeves. Both pieces pair well with everything. As for outerwear, faux fur and military-inspired looks are all you're ever going to need. It's even better when both are combined, a pea coat with a faux fur collar makes any outfit look more luxurious. They're everywhere on the high street this season, so, don't worry about breaking the bank. If you're feeling French then switch out the classic beanie for a beret, pair it with straight leg jeans, black ankle boots, a turtleneck, camel coat and you're good to go. As for ankle boots, turn to velvet, metallic colors, embroidery and anything suede for a polished look this winter. All pieces from this set can be found here.

What are you waiting for? Go see what your wardrobe is missing, it may need a refresher. Shop my favorite pieces for winter '16 below. All the love,

New York City Photo Diary

Before I moved into my apartment earlier last month my mother surprised me with a trip to New York! I just couldn't hold myself back, I had to take pictures of everything. I had my camera with me everywhere I went and let me tell you, it was such a treat. By now I've realized that a picture really is worth a thousand words, sometimes more.

During my two day adventure, I explored basically all of Manhattan - but the MET, Top of the Rock, and September 11th Memorial were truly my favorites. Super touristy of me, I know, but get over it. I'm nineteen people, I do what I want! It was such a fun trip nonetheless, and I can't wait to go back one day. For now, feel free to live vicariously through me. If you're headed to New York anytime soon, do yourself a favor and stop by JG Melon's in the West Village, it's truly life changing. Ok, I'm tired and I have homework. Enjoy! All the love,

Fashion Month: The Best of the Best

Fashion month sped by at the blink of an eye. One moment I was wandering around Manhattan hoping to run into Gigi Hadid. Next thing I know, I'm sitting in my 10:15am class (what's up Brother Henderson?!) scrolling through Instagram and astonished at how quickly Paris Fashion Week had ended. 
This time around was a time chocked full of first's: Anthony Vaccarello debuted his work for Saint Laurent, Gigi Hadid's see now, buy now collaboration, with Tommy Hilfiger brought back the nautical vibes. Oh, and we can't forget Maria Grazia Chiuri's debut at Dior. Her work is transitioning from Valentino to Dior impeccably well. 

Below are my absolute favorite looks off the runways of New York, London, Milan, and Paris fashion week. There's something unique about each look that drags my attention to it. Enjoy! All the love,
