From London to Ibiza


After a month in rainy London, I decided to jet over to Ibiza for my last few days in Europe. Sun, sangria, tapas, beautiful beaches and incredible clubs made for the perfect getaway. I've realized that it's so important to take some time for yourself and occasionally just relax, turn off the wifi, lay on a beach and sip ridiculously overpriced mojitos. From now on, Ibiza is definitely going to be an annual event. Who's in for next year?!

The Intern 'Selfie' Project

Last summer when I was working at Teen Vogue I embarked on my own personal "selfie" project. In an attempt to not repeat any outfits, I took a quick snapshot on my way to work everyday. As I begin to assemble outfits for my new summer internship these photos have been paramount in providing inspiration.

My 3 internship essentials:
1 comfortable yet flattering footwear (think: platforms, booties, pretty sandals) as you never know where you'll need to run to on a moment's notice
2 a big bag (or in my case, multiple big bags) to carry all your necessities
3 a sweater, cardigan or light jacket as even though it's 100+ degrees outside, the AC in the office will more likely make it feel like Antarctica 


[R to L, top to bottom]: 1 Gryphon dress, Mulberry bag & Vince Camuto boots 2 Zara t-shirt, H&M bomber jacket, Topshop skirt, Jeffrey Campbell boots & Zara bag 3 Current/Elliott jacket, New Look crop top, Topshop skirt & Alexander Wang 'Donna' bag 4 Monki shirt, Zara kids skirt, Jeffrey Campbell boots & Zara bag5 Tibi shirt, Brandy Melville shorts, Aldo sandals & Asos backpack 6 Alexander Wang t-shirt & Zara shorts | 7 Religion sweater & Tibi skirt | 8 thrifted skirt & J Park shirt | 9 Alexander Wang tank, Topshop skirt, Aldo shoes & Alexander Wang 'Donna' bag | 10 Wildfox t-shirt & Topshop skirt | 11 Hyden Yoo, Theory skirt, Aldo sandals & Alexander Wang bag | 12 Zara short suit & Club Monaco t-shirt

Instagram Diaries: 2014 (Thus Far)

We may only be 2 months into the new year, but already I feel like so much has happened. I have a fantastic internship, I was able to attend NYFW shows for the first time, I was featured in the New York Times, and I've been having incredible weekends with my friends. It seems that 2014 could pan out to be a really wonderful year!

Neo-Queen

There is something so fantastically futuristic about neoprene. I feel like when we discover life on Mars they'll definitely be wearing neoprene.

Leather Confessions

I am a total fiend for leather jackets. While most people can usually be content with one, I always find a way to justify a need for multiple. This Maison Scotch leather jacket is the latest addition to my ever-expanding collection and definitely my favorite- just look at the doodles on the back! I love when I buy a piece that I know is going to be in my closet forever.

I AM [so proud!]

Recently I was lucky enough to help my incredibly talented boyfriend make a music video. Not only was the video a hit with his friends, family and peers, but also with Axwell, the sensational DJ who was previously in Swedish House Mafia (yes, the Swedish House Mafia!) Axwell decided to use Kevin's video as the official music video for the Deorro remix of "I Am" by Axwell and Sick Individuals ft. Taylr Renee. Although this music video may not be fashion related, it is such a huge and remarkable achievement for Kevin and I hope that you all take a second to check it out (plus, the superhero costumes are super cute and I cut out the FW logos...so that's pretty #fashion-y, right?!)

...I'm Back!

For most of my life I have shied away from statement coats. I've always felt that it seemed like a better use of money to buy a simplistic black coat that would last through the years; however, as much as I love a good monochromatic palette, it can get a little boring (think: the same puffy North Face that everyone and their mothers have). For that reason, this bright red coat is one of my favorites winter staples. Not only is it a great way to add a pop to any outfit, but it is also Miu Miu and only cost me $40 at Buffalo Exchange (#thriftqueen)!
