I had the pleasure of working with a neckwear company back in November. DWIMMER products are of outstanding quality and made with the most beautiful textiles. I highly recommend checking them out whenever you’re out the lookout for a new tie for yourself (unisex too!).

Sometimes life has a funny way of throwing curveballs at you. With these curveballs are lessons no one can ever really prepare you for or really teach you about. I’ve heard it all, I’ve read it all, I can even say I’ve now seen it all, but in the end its up to you and how you’re going to really move forward.
We loose ourselves in this motion of life and the pursuit of happiness but do we ever really stop and think about what we need to do as an individual to keep yourself moving forward?
The past few weeks have set me a little back in my progress. What’s the point of dwelling on these things that are out of my control. One day life seems perfect and the next I’m sobbing In my bed wondering if this is really happening? As a 27 year old women I know this isn’t how I wanted my life to be. Can I take control now that the emotions are clearing and the logic is in full force? Of course!
For the next few months I invite you to join me as I focus solely on the thing I can control, my happiness and my health. The dreams I have for myself need to become my reality. You can never let obstacles defeat you, you to must look within yourself and fix the things that aren’t right.
I know you guys were expecting a post about my new fashion obsessions, fall inspirations, and all my exciting upcoming sponsorships and collaborations, however I wanted to take a step back and let everyone into a little bit of my reality.
I hope this inspires someone to do the same. I look forward to creating more lifestyle posts, and if anyone has any topics they’d like to see me write about, please feel free to email me! I’d love to open more doors.
I love you all and appreciate all the support I’ve gotten in the past few weeks.
Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t been able to post I’ve been so caught up in the daily grind.
I just wanted to take some time to really introduce to you some great brands I got an opportunity to see at Capsule Men’s NYC.
The first brand would be Sundae School. These guys have something coming in fall that you should really look forward to. The brand itself could be the WORLDs first smokewear brand that produces apparel as well as ( yes just not clothes!) supplies set out for “high rollers” ( as they say). This brand has a great idea and with some exposure could be a brand you’ll wanna look out for!
Second brand would be Band of Outsiders. I anticipated this show from when I saw their fall preview! This brand is a LA based iconic menswear brand that features everyday wear, a lot of personality, and the idea of a simple life. The brand clearly gets inspiration from iconic films, and a huge influence on pop art.
I mean I could sit here and list every brand but this would go on and on. I would take a few minutes and check out the two brands I’ve listed and as well as all of the brands that attended Men’s Capsule NYC!
I’ll leave on a note of some of my favorite pictures from my trip.
Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat, I’m passionate about finding some runway inspired peices for a whole lot cheaper then designer prices. Now your girl always cares about quality and lasting, but who says you have to spend a fortune to look good and still wear trendy things? This whole outfit is less than $500!
First things first… lets just say the 90’s called and they want their sunglasses back. Im THRILLED that this summer the Olsen twins are inspiring me to bring back my tween age self. If you haven’t tried on a pair of circle sunglasses yet, you’re missing out. Not only are they flattering on most face shapes, but they add some real sass to any outfit. These ones were at H&M for only $12.99! Off to the watch, one thing I can tell you is time is the most important element in our lives, so what you use to tell time should be just as important. Im sticking to Daniel Wellington this season. They’re well crafted watches and the best part is for this scorching heat, they are super thin which allows your wrist to not be weighed down by it. Now when I’m feeling a little sassy I’ll bring out this camouflage print fabric strap, otherwise I’ll stick to the classy act of leather. Super easy to switch out and works for any occasion!
The yellow body suit? Well, this is so far one of my favorite editions to my closet the last few weeks. These things are making a huge come back, especially with the heavy influence of pop starts wearing them. This one has a ribbed texture and surprisingly this baby is thick! The silver buttons can unbutton up top and the crotch area actually doesn’t unsnap (this means this is not one of the ones you wear going out with your girls because ladies, you will have to pull it all the way down). Find this key piece at H&M in the Trend section! Ripped black pants? Well if you know me, you know I live in ripped denim. Its the florida girl in me looking for any excuse to wear the most breathable clothing. These are high waisted so they go great with bodysuits, crop tops, and tight shirts, & blouse. I’ll be styling these differently in the up coming blog posts! Again another great find at H&M for $49.99.
The Kate Spade backpack is my everyday essential. Someone like me who commutes into the city everyday, I need some space in my bag for lugging around things. It has side buttons which makes the backpack expand and carry even more! I can fit my whole makeup bag in this bag, that says a lot! If i can’t have a neckerchief around my neck for my outfit you bet its on my purse! This pink one on my bag is from Madewell.
Lastly, but most importantly, DENIM. This time its this embodied denim jacket. I bought this one oversized on purpose but it does fit as a boyfriend style as is. Hands down one of my favorite denim pieces I own.
