DM LITE

Shopping for the perfect boot for the winter season is a struggle. Luckily, I struck gold with these comfortable boots from Dr. Martens’ new Lite collection. This unisex boot is a part of an revolutionary new line of products that include an ultra-lightweight sole. The sole is super lightweight and slip resistance because of a wicking SoftWair Technology Insole, padded collar, and thick mesh and foam tongue.

While you can style these many different ways, I decided to take the casual approach while in Brooklyn. A simple waffle sweater, paired with fitted chino pants, rolled up just enough to show off the height of the boot.

If you’re anything like me, when you love something so much and it just so happens to comes in multiple colors….you take advantage! I’ll be transitioning the brown ones into my spring wardrobe and wearing them similar to how I’m currently wearing them now. Minus the jacket and minus the thick sweater contingent on if it’s not freezing!

IS IT SPRING?!

February 20, 2017

Is this spring weather here on the East coast, or are we just getting lucky?! If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you probably saw my most recent trip out west to California where the weather was gorgeous! It was my first time out there but saw many areas like San Diego, LA, Joshua Tree and Palm Springs. After a week of full relaxation, I’m finally back in New York to shocking spring temperatures. It’s hard to believe that just a week ago we received 12inches of snow. I guess I brought the sunshine back with me!

Shop this look: | Banana Republic Grant Gingham shirt , Banana Republic slim traveler pant |

I’m covered for the sporadic weather change in my new spring arrivals from Banana Republic. As of lately, I’ve been drawn towards light pink shades and neutrals. This color combo of BR’s Grant-fit shirt is so perfect it screams spring. The fit is a slim cut in the sleeves and chest and tapered through the waist. I can’t wait to switch up the style a little by pairing it over a simple white t-shirt. These pants would also look great with a simple tee paired with a loafer. The traveler pant from Banana Republic is a super casual chino that comes with a little stretch! If you’re shopping this style online, I suggest you size down.

STYLE WITH A PURPOSE

February 6, 2017

Great fashion is one thing, but when fashion serves a purpose..I’m sold! I’ve teamed up with the Hamilton Perkins Collection because it’s a brand where style and socially consciouness meet. HPC was founded out of a simple necessity: the need of affordable designer bags that look great, perform well and serves a huge purpose. The Hamilton Perkins ‘Earth’ bag is made out of 100% recycled bottles. Being that the average person throws out as much as 180 pounds of plastic a year which takes about 500-1,000 years to degrade-why not fix this issue by transforming it into fashion.

Shop this look: | Quinn Bartoe coat, Thomas zip sweater, Hudson Blake jean, Creative Recreation (similar) boot, Hamilton Perkins Earth bag |

Since I’m forever on the go, this bag is essential for everyday use. I’m actually a lost puppy without my laptop or camera, but when toting multiple outfits for weekends spent shooting around the city, the Earth bag comes in handy. Whether you’re off to catch the next train or hopping on a plane, the Earth bag makes an easy and sleek carry on for every travel occasion. I’ll definitely be carrying this one to California with me on Friday! Keep up with my travels via Instagram and check out more of the Hamilton Perkins Collection here

Shop this look: | Members only elongated bomber jacket , Big Star denim, CAT Footwear Awe boot |

While bomber jackets have taken the fashion world by storm, there’s something super badass about the elongated version. Members Only has taken advantage by added a couple of these styles in their current collection. In all honesty, the longer ones are way more functional when it comes to New York winters.

You’ll see a few more bombers in rotation from me for men’s fashion week starting Monday. Be sure to keep up with the shows via my Insta-stories
