from the other side

Hope everyone survived Turkey day with nothing worse than food commas and pumpkin pie overdose. Gotta love a holiday that centers around over-eating. Seriously. I love it. And couldn’t have had a better weekend with a full house  of loved ones and record 65 degree and sunny afternoons. Finally, one year I don’t dread the post-turkey trot with frost icing over my face. #gobblegobble So yeah, coat weather… not such a big fan – sweater weather, that’s a whole other story. Who wouldn’t love cozying into this oversized knit from French connection (another TJMaxx find!) and wide leg trousers from Parker Smith. Why is it that the best denim always comes from California? Californians, I’m officially jealous of your cotton loving, jean weaving state. I must come visit you. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | knit:FRENCH CONNECTION | wide leg trousers c/o:PARKER SMITH | timepiece c/o: THE FIFTH | rings c/o:K D’Angelo Designs | ear cuffs c/o: BOUTIQUE MINIMALISTE New timepiece from The Fifth. You know I have an obsession, and it keeps getting worse. Love the bold face and brushed band. And …

don’t blink

Because some days really are too good to be true. Three years ago, I had never been to NYC. Now, both work and pleasure have since brought me back dozens of times, and the city’s soul has now become a more familiar place to me.  (Though I must admit, I have yet to master the subway system) #helpme The city is truly full of endless adventures and possibilities. This morning’s mission was one of the most urgent nature, and hardly accomplished in time to avoid a complete catastrophe… but just when I had almost given up hope (frantic, two blocks away from where my search began)… there it was, tucked in the corner of a busy intersection, and almost in arms reach…  the one answer to every problem. Coffee. Yeah, it’s like that. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | knit:FOREVER21 | ombre joggers c/o:PARKER SMITH | loafers:NICOLE | stack rings c/o:K D’Angelo Designs | location:W HOTEL UNION SQUARE Dress in NYC is almost a formula. With such a variety of places one might wind up, it’s best to be …

just when things were getting interesting

Enjoyed a bit of unorthodox leisure time last week. Between checking off some of those dusty to-do’s and enjoying a couple evenings over a glass of wine (and by a glass, yes… I do mean bottle), I was also also able to catch the flick Kingsman. Antiquated as the concept may be, I can’t get enough of the gentleman = lethal spy plot. Guys, in case you haven’t figured it out yet – suits are to women, as lingerie is to men. We find it attractive when you at least look like you’ve got your sh** together. And really, if you can’t bear to get out of your stained collage T and torn jeans on occasion, just bear this in mind: you don’t wear it, neither will we. #yourenotthebossofme #unlessyoulooklikeone Something about leather pants aways does it for me. Look out world. Today has just begun. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | blouse c/o:LOOKBOOK STORE | leather pants:JOES | boots:NICOLE | bag:VINCE CAMUTO | silk scarf c/o:VEVELLE | cuff c/o:MOORTOWN | stack necklaces c/o:ROCKSBOX (use my code: dayinmydreamsxoxo for a free …

faded

The elephant keeps walking as the dogs keep barking. Something they don’t teach you in business class. This adage from India came from my partner in crime, and I will continue to keep the words in heart. With the growth of success, comes an onslaught of negativity. And no, I’m not talking about constructive criticism that helps you grow. I’m talking about the truly nasty, nonfactual, and unprofessional based nagging and manipulation of situations with seemingly no purpose or cause. You’ve probably worked with a few such people in your life, and if you continue to grow in a path of success, you can probably expect a lot more. While the spirit’s first reaction may be to reflect the attitude, the best advise I’ve received: The elephant keeps walking as the dogs keep barking. The fact of the matter is, you’ll never be able to train the dogs. Instead, an elephant walks steadily through the streets, seemingly unaffected by the barking around them. Focus on your goals and how to achieve them. The rest around you, is just noise fading away. photography:KUNDAN …

where we go

Our world is forever moving, and the places it takes us are a mixture of beauty, excitement, sadness, joy, and the unexpected. Life wouldn’t balance without a little of each. I find it best to accept all with a sort of reverence to the bigger picture, which our minds are so often incapable of comprehending in the moment.  This week has been a blur of each, as I say goodbye to two of my dearest friends. (no, they didn’t die). Their lives are taking them on beautiful adventures! And I couldn’t be more excited for the new opportunities they’ll experience with a change in work and new surroundings. So proud of you guys… but seriously… did you both have to leave in opposite directions in the same flippin week?? #youleftmeallalone jk I’ll be visiting soon. And to my friends that remain, I’m sorry but you’ll be experiencing an increased dose of me in weeks to follow. With the addition of fall setting in, I’ll be searching for life’s little comforts. On the east coast, it’s been sunny and 75 …
