All New Yorkers have their most-loved spots in the city. The locations that make us want to slow down for a minute, take everything in, and enjoy the on-goings around us. One of my favorite locations in Manhattan is just about in the center of the island, where 74th Street meets the middle of Central Park. There, you can find the infamous Bow Bridge. Featured in movies like The Way We Were and Enchanted (among others,) the iconic structure has a timeless feel of romance and whimsy. Whenever I make my way to the park, I try to incorporate Bow Bridge into my day’s walking trail. As the year ticks on, the park takes on new energies and personalities, which is why I make a point to frequent it with the change of a new season. I thought that capturing a few moments with the bridge’s austere (and nearly centuries-old) architecture would be a great opportunity to showcase a bit of juxtaposition with one of my breezy summertime ensembles.
Has anyone else here been bitten by the travel bug recently? A persistent feeling of wanting to jump on a plane and fly to a favorite vacation spot? I’m betting that many of you have summer trips planned already, and if you don’t, you’ve been keeping your eye on a good flight deal. The minute I book my ticket for any holiday, I’ve planned out my vacay outfits in my head or have shopping lists mentally drawn to be crossed off within the next day or two.

This first day look is often an afterthought for many travelers, though it’s equally as important as the rest of your holiday attire. The trick to creating savvy travel looks is to prioritize comfort and style equally. When you hold these two elements of your outfit to equal standards, you won’t even need to change between your landing gate and the hotel bar. Continue Reading
We’ve sure had our fair share of April showers in NYC this spring. And as the old saying goes, May flowers should be right around the corner. If waiting for daisies to break through the ground is a little too slow-paced for your taste, you can don your own flowers this spring in a myriad of ways! Your favorite brands are getting spring fever too, with florals on every rack and in every window. Miranda Priestly may scoff at the age-old motif, but florals are a timeless staple for good reason. Brands like DVF, Gucci, Erdem, and Alice + Olivia have dozens of floral patterns for you to choose from this spring, as well as a wide range of silhouettes and materials for variety. Continue Reading
And in the blink of an eye, spring is here! While I despise setting my clock forward one hour, the extra light in the evening and the warmer temperatures sure are nice. March and April are full of inspiration for me – foliage and flowers, fresh cut grass and barbecues, outdoor exercise and birds chirping are just some of the little things that influence how I dress when the weather starts to warm up. I’ve actually been traveling quite a bit this spring already – working, dancing, working some more – and upon my return to NYC all I wanted was to put on some comfy clothes and take the weekend to myself. Lucky for me, athleisure is everywhere right now.
