all white dresses the new lbd?

Dresses, hats, lost scarves and bags littered the floor. It’s apparent music is playing loudly somewhere nearby, but it’s muffled by a few doorways between. A seemingly lost but determined girl dodges jagged heels and scattered garments in a maze formation. It’s closet cleaning day. An activity that commences in my home at least every few months, this is the time when ever item is pulled from its place (or misplacement), steamed, sorted and either refreshed back into place or discarded for the girlfriends to sort through in the upcoming days. This particular episode of wardrobe organization, I noted one distinct shift in the pieces hanging in my “keep” division: less are the little black dresses, and more are the little white dresses, which begs the question: are white dresses the new lbd? photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | little white dress c/o:DAVID LERNER | little black dress c/o:DAVID LERNER Sure, they both have their place in this world. And in a minimalist fashion wardrobe like my own, there’s no lacking in either department. …

white, nude, grey – spring fashion in neutrals

It’s starting to feel like spring… and that means breaking out the lighter colors from your wardrobes (not that they’ve been tucked away). We all know white in winter is no longer a cliche, but something about that warm seasonal sun makes the bright shades in fashion all the more glorious. Here are a few spring style tips and fashion forecasting tidbits for staying on trend this season. What to place on high-rotation this spring? Distressed jeans are the number-one spring fashion comeback of the season. Don’t miss out! From worn-in wear to raw-edge fray – it’s time to bring back the 90’s grunge in a whole new way. The more raw, the better. Look for unexpected hems with loose strings, ragged ends and high-low trim. Too fast for your pace? Try a classic skinny with some heavy distressing at the knee. And while casual has been all the rage, don’t be afraid to dress up your spring and summer fashion. Pumps are also on a comeback, and if you don’t have the essentials covered be …

mamma chia snack review

grab and go mamma chia

Remember when you thought after college you’d be working a 9-5 and life would be so easy? Wrong. If only we knew back then what busy really meant. I recall the days contemplating the challenge of writing a 3 page paper over a weekend. Now I’m lucky if that’s all I have to do in a night after the office! I always knew life was motion, but who knew it was a freight train on high-speed. And to be honest, I wouldn’t change a thing. Somehow I still manage the time to graze my favorite fashion blog sites, travel bites and find inspiration at every corner. How do I make time for it all? Finding the little things in life that can shave off a few moments here and there, and resorting to habits that can keep up with my lifestyle. A new such discovery I’m loving for healthy living on the go – Chia Squeezes, by Mamma Chia. photography: KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | snacks for healthy living c/o:MAMMA CHIA Though I try to live a healthy lifestyle, balancing …

forever a fantasy

You know those dreams you used to have as a child… with unicorns in the sky and the power of the wind beneath your wings? With magical trolls as your best friends and some pending evil to ward away. I believe that part of our childhood fantasy lives on forever. It inspires you, reminds you that there’s something special inside everyone, and drives you to keep dreaming – no matter how that dream may change with time. That part in our lives has a power of its own. A freedom. A moment where anything is possible, if only in our dreams. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR + KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sterling silver ring c/o:AURUM (take 25% off with code: TAKE25PC) I choose to live that reality, embracing the boundless journey on the flip side. Something about the ethereal beauty of certain things in this world transport me there. The sky at dusk, a clear full moon, staring into the crashing waves of the sea. The prolonged glance of a stranger or the melody of your favorite …
