3 ways to pick your weekday casual in a New York minute

Relaxed, sophisticated style. That pretty much sums up the ideal wardrobe situation for a girl on the go. But it’s not always easy looking effortlessly chic when you need to be dressed and out the door in 10 minutes. Balancing a full-time career as a creative director and managing a fashion blog on the side can be a challenge – especially when you try to squeeze world travel into the mix. I’d say I’m pretty happy with the balance I’ve found so far, but I’d be lying if I said I walk out the door every day feeling great about the outfit I grabbed. I mean loose jeans and a raggedy sweater from ’09? What was I thinking. I often try to share tips on work life balance as I know many of you understand the struggle is real. Here are a couple tips I incorporate into an (almost) fool proof recipe for fast, wardrobe grabs when you need to get out the door in a hurry and look fab all at the same time. …

when a warm breeze blows

A week of nothing to do but soak in bliss. A stretch of sandy beaches, pina colada in hand, and endless tacos on the horizon. It’s vacation in Mexico! The latest adventure: outskirts of Cancun with a crew of 10 for the week. Welcome to the cabana life. All-inclusive is definitely the way to go, and there was no shortage of champagne and cocktails on our 10 day adventure in Cancun at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. A moment to breath fresh, unworried air – priceless. photography:FRIENDS | camera:iPHONE 6 | shorts:ONE TEASPOON | statement necklace c/o:STICKS + STONES | sunglasses:RAYBAN | marble bag c/o:LUXE BLOGGER | perfume c/o:MAISON MARGIELA Beach essentials for the trip: some statement jewelry courtesy of Sticks + Stones along with a new scent by Maison Margiela and of course – go-to RayBan sunnies. Advise for beach-centric vacations – don’t over pack. The likelihood of you changing out of a swimsuit and cover more than 1-2 times are little to none. Instead, focus on swimwear and lightweight pieces that work well over a …

what to wear to the office

what to wear to work and the after party

It’s a weekday. And you’ve been staring into your wardrobe with the blank “I need coffee” stare for the past 10 minutes. Wore it last week; I think it’s supposed to rain today; I just can’t handle tight jeans right now; do I have time to get doughnuts before work; I wonder what they’d say if I showed up in a sweatshirt; I wish the neighbor’s dog would stop barking; do people still even watch walking dead?? So the work week begins. You’re pretty sure you’re already late, and you haven’t even filled your eyebrows yet. A whole closet full, yet no idea on what to wear to work. Plus you’re supposed to meet the girls for happy hour straight from the office. Work appropriate and cute enough to compete with your local version of housewives of NYC? As a fashion blogger, I have a huge closet plump full of this seasons hottest trends. But the struggle is real for all of us. It’s 7:15am, that’s just too much for the mind to handle right …

live luxe, live lavish

Anything worth doing, is worth doing well. And from my perspective, that includes every aspect of life. I’m not being boushy, nor do I prioritize fineness over life’s greatest treasures such as love, kindness and forgiveness. However – living to the fullest can be fun. And there’s nothing wrong with living a little luxe and lavish as long as you don’t loose sight of eternal treasures in the process. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | laceup skirt c/o:LAVISH ALICE | backless top c/o:LAVISH ALICE | perspex boots c/o:LAVISH ALICE | perspex cuffs c/o:REVOLT DESIGN | leather clutch c/o:REVOLT DESIGN | leather purse c/o:VONHOLZHAUSEN If there’s one thing I’ve learned through the ample opportunities that have come along with managing a travel, lifestyle and fashion blog – it’s to truly value purchases before you make them. Being completely candid, part of blogging is receiving countless items from partners and collaborators or brands hopeful of features. In the process, I have learned to not only select my partners carefully for my ideal style and the …
