Destination New York | OOTD Video

Happy Tuesday:

It’s my last day in New York City!

What better way to spend my last day then with an NYC themed OOTD video. This one was filmed by one of my good friends, Kendrin; also known as Koid24 on Instagram. Filming is his thing and I am so happy we manage to get a little collaboration video in before I left permanently.

The vision was most definitely in sync: I couldn’t be happier with the end result.

Kae and I were treated to a lil’ bowling date by Kendrin & his bae a few weeks ago. Just sit back, relax, and relive a NYC night with me.

Thank you so much for stopping by & watching!

Mad love, forever & always.

March Collage & Wishlist

Happy Monday:

I’m here with another monthly Collage and Wishlist! These posts have quickly become one of my favorites to post. I genuinely enjoy flipping through old magazines & pasting pictures together to reflect my current inspirations. As you’ll see, I’m seriously dying for spring to make its arrival – and stay for a bit.

SPRING FEVER 

Collage 2

I have a serious case of the winter blues. Though New York has had a few days of Spring, global warming keeps coming back, hitting us with 30 degree weather and snow…in April. As I’m typing this post up, it’s gloomy, cold and rainy outside. Since I still have time to prep for my Spring Wardrobe, I decided to take on the challenge of creating my own capsule collection. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that having an abundant amount of clothes has honestly made it harder for me to get dressed in the morning. I find that I gravitate towards the same clothes all the time – do I really need those 15 tops that I never even glance at? This collage has a few pieces that I already own, and some pieces I hope to find via thrift store & DIY within the next few week. All I’ve been thinking about are the endless amount of outfits I can create this spring season. This is going to be my season – I am a May baby, so this is technically my season. Expect a lot of fashion videos and posts this Spring, my creative juices have been flowing non-stop!

SPRING AWAKENING

Spring Awakening.

This is an outfit I’ve had in my mind for a few weeks now. I’m on the hunt for the perfect off-the-shoulder top, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I recently picked up some silk fabric and have been playing around with my sewing machine, so I’m definitely planning on creating my own perfect top. When in doubt, make it yo’ self. My accessory game has improved tremendously since shaving bald and I seriously cannot wait to rock the boho vibes.  I’m forever one with the bohemian vibes.

Wishlist:

  • Denim: Boohoo Ripped BF Jeans $44
  • Top: TopShop Off-the-Shoulder Blouse $52
  • Shoes: Bamboo Chunky Heel Sandals $30
  • Bag: Montana West Western Aztec Fringe Shoulder Bag $64
  • Necklace: Leslie Danzis Glass Crystal Fringe Pendant $45
  • Headscarf: Kaly Easy Scarf $44
  • Earrings: Etsy $10

Happy Wednesday beauts!

pic7Today’s outfit post is a bit random – I won’t lie. That’s because the original outfit I was planning on posting today didn’t work out how it was supposed too. NOTE TO SELF: Take photos during daylight hours.

Darien & I didn’t have time to go to our usual spot, so we opt for a mini photoshoot in our backyard. It’s my go to location whenever I film OOTD’s & Lookbooks. This will be our go to spot whenever life get’s too real & we can’t go to our PLAN A spot. The life of being a parent is very unexpected.

Outfit Deets:

This outfit was inspired by the chill, urban vibes of my beloved Brooklyn. Even though I am a momma, I can’t deny that I do enjoy rocking school girl, sporty/skater type looks. My love for sporty street wear definitely appeared in my fashion radar a few years back, when Darien and I got together. When you’re with someone all of the time, you can’t help but be influenced by their presence. TIP: Find inspiration in everyone you know.

My love for 5 panels is definitely one of the things I gained from being with Darien. It’s all he ever wears. I always thought girls who rocked these type of hats were super cool, but I was always insecure about how I would look in them. Once I grew the guts to not care about what people thought of me or how I looked, I started rocking them all the time, with no shame. This hat is my first 5 panel, and I won’t ever get rid of it. The floral print screams Glendaly & the brim is a beautiful suede. Such a dope piece. TIP: Don’t be afraid to rock that killer piece of clothing. Tell yourself you will look bomb & trust me, YOU WILL LOOK BOMB.

This boyfriend tee is literally one of my favorites. I recommend every girl picking up at least one – it literally falls on the body perfectly. Perfectly slouchy, perfectly oversized, perfectly perfect. This is one of those pieces where I’d suggest spending a few more bucks on – quality is always better than quantity. I will preach this until the end of time.

Notice that I wore this tee in last weeks outfit post? TIP: A piece you can wear more ways that one, two or thirty times, is a piece worth investing in.

This is literally the first time I wore this skirt & I’ve had it for over 2 years. It fits perfect, is a beautiful a-line shape and makes me feel super cute. But the bad thing about it? It’s white. I never wear white bottoms, so it’s really hard for me to style this piece. I do plan on dying it black, though. I’m confident I’d wear it weekly once I do. TIP: Recycle old clothing. It’s a great way to make old pieces feel fresh.

pic6I wore my Steve Madden nude booties because I though it’d match my hat better than my black pair, but I was a little nervous about my bottom half being to light. To add a block between the white skirt & nude shoes, I decided to rock these socks from Target. Awesome enough, it has white, nude, and black which I feel added a cool touch to the entire ensemble.

This American Eagle Aztec Print mini backpack was my bag choice because I wanted this look to have a super cool, laid back vibe.

My shades are my current obsession – I wear these all of the time with almost every outfit.

The jewelry is kept super simple; my top necklace is a DeadGypsie original & my longer one was a gift from my mother-in-law; my Sun God from Puerto Rico.
