Winter White

Who says you can’t wear all white in the winter? There are really no rules in the fashion industry, so break out your palest hues and hop on the winter white trend. As a fellow New Yorker, I love wearing all white in a crowd full of black, navy and grey. It instantly makes me feel fresh and clean.

Stay Dreaming

Lately I have been so hooked on scrolling through Tumblr. I think it is a beautiful outlet for self expression. There is just something about it that feels safe, where you can freely express your thoughts and feelings free of negativity…

Pinstripe Culotte

My go-to Monday style essentials are sneakers and a comfortable pair of culottes. This casual look is ideal for a day filled with running errands. I paired these pinstripe culottes from River Island with my all time favorite white platform sneakers from Adidas.

Artist: Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele will always be my favorite artist. I fell in love with his ability to create confrontational portraits with his signature nervous and loose line work. This signature graphic style welcomes distorted figures and defies conventional norms of beauty, which is one of the many reasons he is my favorite artist. Personally, I find the average standards of beauty to be very boring. I love any artist or designer who goes beyond these contrived norms and makes the viewer feel something new, even if it is initial discomfort. To me, that is intriguing. As a leader of expressionism, his imagery is deeply psychological. There is much more that meets the eye.

Pink Sneakers

Pink is not a color I normally admire. However, I couldn’t resist purchasing this pink coat and sneakers. It was my first time shopping at OOTD Store and it wont be my last. I have been looking for pastel shoes for quite some time, so when I saw these cotton candy colored sneakers I knew they would be really fun and east to style! The athleisure trend isn’t going away anytime soon, so shop my favorite sneakers below.

These lace-up boots from Public Desire are everything. They are super sexy and instantly spice up any look. I styled mine with this long-line vest to make my look more day appropriate, but I can’t wait to play them up for a night out!

Longline Car Coat

My search for the perfect longline coat came to a halt when I found this one from Forever 21. This style is super hot right now, and I am excited to pair it with a hooded sweatshirt next! I finished my look off with my Adidas Superstar Rize sneakers, which I am scrubbing religiously after every wear.

Aero Vintage T-Shirts

My best friend Stefani Rose has been immensely involved in rebranding Aeropostale. As the Associate Manager of Social Media, she is responsible for running both sub brand accounts Live Love Dream and Tokyo Darling, while still creating content for Aero. For this shoot, Stefani worked with my brother to create lifestyle images for Aero’s vintage t-shirt collection. I had a lot of fun modeling the t-shirts as well as watching Stefani’s vision for the shoot come to life. This campaign was shot during our trip to Acadia National Park in Maine, a trip I will definitely never forget.

Button-Down + Tuxedo Scarf

For this look I played with a typically classic button-down shirt by adding a tuxedo skinny scarf from Free People. I love the idea of feminizing a button-down! I think you can have so much fun styling it.

Shenandoah National Park

My unexpected visit to Shenandoah National Park left me speechless. My mother and I kept stopping while driving through the mountains to soak in the endless beauty. It was the perfect time of the year to do the skyline drive, as the leaves were more vibrant than ever. Moments like this make me realize how important it is to travel. There are still so many places I want to explore within the United States. This is just the beginning.

In the Mountains

Spontaneous adventures are the most fulfilling. Unplanned moments make me appreciate life for what it is. It is so easy to get caught up in a routine and look at each day as a job. If you wake up feeling unhappy.. change it. Life is too beautiful to waste. As imperfect humans our mind cannot be filled with utter bliss every minute. However, I am striving each day to practice a positive mind and appreciate the beauty around me.

Interior: Texture

This past weekend I went to North Carolina to go to High Point Market, the largest home furnishing trade show in the world! It was a great experience browsing a number of showrooms and seeing how each of their styles vary. More importantly, it really made me begin to think about how I want to decorate my apartment when I move to New York next year. For one, texture is so important. I love anything rustic and woodsy. I noticed I gravitated towards pieces that weren’t too polished and had a more ‘lived in’ feel. The inspiration images I pulled above reflect my ideal space which combines various textures from faux fur throws to wooden tables that look as though they came straight from my backyard.

Aflame with Color

Autumn is the most beautiful season of them all. Especially in New Jersey, which has made me appreciate growing up in a state that celebrates every season. Despite my initial angst for the cooler weather, the magic that autumn brings makes the seasonal transition easier. Along with this transition comes sporting flannels, sipping hot coffee, and staying warm in oversized scarves. When I found this scarf from Free People this past week, I knew it would become a staple in my wardrobe.
