let the sweat roll

Something about a breaking a heavy sweat feels deliciously refreshing. Like your pores have been fighting a drawn out battle, and finally gave way to the rush of your body’s energy flow. And while I would like to boast these droplets of fallen soldiers are from putting in a full day’s over-due workout… it’s actually mostly from the heat. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sport bra c/o:TITIKA | activewear short c/o:TITIKA | joggers c/o:TITIKA | athleisure dress c/o:TITIKA | althleisure shoes:ADIDAS ORIGINALS | pebble leather bag c/o:STATUS ANXIETY Deceivingly scorching for it’s bright appearance, this studio would have been perfect – if only it weren’t 90° without proper ventilation. I’ll be back in the fall. In the mean time, at least I look like I’m practicing some intense moves. And while this shot was mostly for the sake of the show – I have actually been getting this butt back into the gym, and proud to say the routine is (mostly) back on track. Coming from previous years of 90 min Bikram sessions …

casual sport sneaker style

Kick back and let your hair down, summer is here and it’s time to squeeze the most enjoyment out of each day. There are so many experiences possible in life’s journey, and I plan to take as many as possible. So many times we get caught up in daily routine and forget to spend time relaxing or getting out to explore the world. Instead, have a mindset of get-up-and-go with a no-excuse attitude for getting stuck in the rut. So far so good with days spent poolside, mini trips to D.C., VA beach, NYC and beyond. What’s on your jetset list for the summer? Don’t make excuses of why next weekend might be better… GO! photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | slip-on slacks c/o:FABRIZIO GIANNI | leatherette top c/o:THE RUSHING HOUR (30% off with code: dayinmydreams30 ) | saddle bag c/o:DESIGUAL | purse pom pom c/o:LUXE BLOGGER | casual sport sneakers c/o:WINDSOR SMITH Nothing makes me feel more relaxed and ready to go than casual sneaker style that lets me run as fast as my feet will take me. …

summer’s blush brightened with pastels

Summer has never felt warmer – and not in the temperature department (though that’s been quite pleasant as well). Every year brings tides of change, and this one has been filled with some of the brightest moments I can recall. The biggest blessing in life is being able to wake each morning eager to start the day, and I sincerely hope that each of you experience the same. And those days when you are able to see the light – soak up the sun and enjoy without looking back. In not-so-far history, I recall having days nearly impossible to rise, anxious for what the day might hold – and other mornings spent longing for just a moment of rest after 80 hour work weeks back-to-back. Yet somehow one of the most prominent contributing factors to this bright warm summer today is having come from those days of struggles past. Learning what it means to give your all to reach goals that in the moment may seem impossible. There will always be battles uphill, but the …

double knit set

Currently in NYC writing from the bed of my Airbnb – just finished the most amazing salmon dinner and draft IPA, reaching for blankets and anything cozy within reach. And what could be more cozy than one of my favorite trends this season, which is all things knit – namely the more untraditional pieces like double knit sets, knit dresses, knit pants (you get the idea). Effortlessly chic, and comfy as sweats, what’s not to love. So as you can imagine, this set from StyleWe is heaven for me. I actually wore the bottom half to an NYC Fashion Week cocktail party, paired with a variant knit sleeveless crop. It ended up being the perfect combo for the night (good thing since I spent 2 hours picking it out) Shooting myself for not getting photos! Which reminds me, have any of you seen this Instagram Husbands video? Some blogger friends played it for me over the weekend and I was literally dying in fits of laughter. I shared it with my boyfriend and he was less than …
