In Full Bloom…

April 24, 2019

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.

High Tides and Gypsy Vibes…

April 16, 2019

There are few things more satisfying than putting reality on hold for a few days and escaping to your ideal vacation. You’ve worked hard all season, you’re running on four cups of coffee a day, and all you want to do is relax with your Delia Owens hardcover overlooking a sunset. (And catch up on sleep.) Whatever your ideal vacation is, you’re most likely doing things you wouldn’t be able to do on a regular basis. Things that you can indulge in; things that you truly enjoy. One of my favorite parts of getting away is that I get to choose a new character every morning when I’m getting dressed. I have nowhere that I need to be and no one that expects me to look a certain way, which is a truly freeing feeling for a stylist. Maybe I’ll lean nautical one day, and go completely edgy the next. Marrying inspiration from my surroundings with my own personality – and a bit of whimsical flair – is often my outfit formula of choice when I’m on holiday. And during my most recent trip to the Caribbean, I was inspired by the street markets’ vibrant colors and the breezy sea waves.

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.

Sunny side up…

February 26, 2019

Without the constant magic and joy that NYFW provides Manhattan, the city reverts to its default for mid-February — a bleak, gray winter. To escape the seemingly endless gloom and cold winds, I recently hopped on a plane to visit some of my favorite spots in Miami and inject some sunshine back into my daily routine. Not only was this trip filled with blooming plants and fresh air, but I also took full advantage of the humidity and warmer temperatures by pulling out some of my favorite seasonal transition garments. When it’s too warm for sweaters but not quite time for mini skirts, I tend to find myself wearing long, breezy ensembles that I can feel confident in – despite unpredictable weather.
