the luxe life

Current situation, livin’ it up in my home space this week, feeling incredibly grateful for people that I love, a job that I look forward to, and ample packages arriving in the mail every week #spoiled #bloggerlife Planning for my alternate week at the New York office next Monday, and do you know what I realized… it’s going to be NYC FASHION WEEK! Packing just got a whole lot more complicated. Couldn’t be more excited to be surrounded by the festivities. I’m one lucky girl with invitations to a couple of events I plan on attending, especially excited to be joining the awesome Bloglovin’ team for a night out courtesy of the king of luxury, Ferragamo. (seriously, WHAT am I going to wear). My suitcase is going to be huge, just sayin. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | jumper c/o:A’GACI | cross body bag c/o:LUXE BLOGGER | woven bracelet c/o:CAROLYN COLBY | timepiece c/o:CHARLIZE | gold earcuffs c/o:CAROLYN COLBY | sunnies c/o:FINLAY & CO | pumps c/o:A’GACI | love you to the moon print c/o:MELO & …

that holiday feelin

The holiday weekend is upon us! Headed to Wisconsin to see the fam for the weekend. Road-tripping it with two monstrous dogs in the backseat… wish me luck. Note to self, don’t wear black. Or leggings. Or anything else comfortable for that matter, since somehow “comfy” = world-shifting force magnet for dog hair. #itsgonnabealongtrip #ineedlintrollers Also, not going to be so warm up north, so I’m enjoying this record sun to the max while for my last days in VA for the week. Not often you can wear skirts and scarves in a Virginia winter, but I’ll take it! photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | knit skirt:TJMAXX | scarf:LOUIS VUITTON | lace-up shoes c/o:TRAFFIC SHOE | bracelet c/o:AEROCULATA | rings c/o:AEROCULATA | stack chokers c/o:NO WEEKENDS | nail laquer c/o:INTENSAE Huge fan of lace-up shoes, and these little shooties are a total steal with Traffic Shoe’s sale, buy 1 get one for $1. Word of advise for when to splurge or steal: for timeless pieces (scarves, knits, quality basics, etc) go big or go home. They’ll be in your …

confident

Demi Lovato’s “Confident” stuck in my head. Holy girl-power… if that’s not enough to get you strutting your stuff this weekend, not sure what will. The past week has been spent in mindful debate over a new direction in my working carrier. When you come to a crux in life, it can be difficult to be confident that, (within the rush of emotions and opportunities) the decision you make will be the best one. But more than right or wrong, it’s most important that when you do make the choice, you stick to it with guns blazing. No one can predict the future, but you can wield the direction of the day with your choices. So here’s to being confident that today will be your day, and you will live it boldly. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | silk blouse:VINCE | skirt c/o:DIARIO DE UNA COUTURIER | luggage set:TUMI | shoes c/o:CLARKS | stack rings c/o:K D’ANGELO With a fresh working mindset – and this totally beautiful new luggage set gifted to me by a good friend Manish, the feeling of …

sunday morning

Stillness truly is a commodity one should treasure. And one of the few times it shows itself is during the first moments of the day. Though I’m not a proclaimed morning person (quite the opposite actually), once I manage to pry open my eyes, soak in the light, and indulge in my first cup of coffee – those moments that follow are actually quite pleasant when the day’s rush can be put on hold. The view of the city below keeps my mind wandering on dreams of the future and memories of days past. And weekends at home – don’t even get me started. My daytime wardrobe is lucky if it finds me. Lazy you say? Comfy, I answer. #truestory photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | bralette c/o:TRUE & CO | cuff c/o:MADELEINE ISSING | rings c/o:KINDLING & COMPANY | geo necklace c/o:KINDLING & COMPANY | hotel:W HOTEL Another great wake-me-up in the am – yoga.

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.
