DUMBO really means Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass to most people or those who Google the meaning. For me, it always meant where my dad worked. He worked in this area that most people would admire – the cobblestone streets, the old brick buildings, the graffiti, the delicious food. What made his job even cooler is that he worked on the Brooklyn Bridge. Many have walked across it, but he has done that 100 times over and even up to the top of it. Not many can say their dad sent a selfie from the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge. Continue reading ““Chanel” Meets DUMBO”
‘Tis the season to be making wishlists am I right? Surprisingly I’ve struggled this month to come up with a list of things that I want. Maybe I’ve finally reached that point in my life where I don’t value materialistic things anymore? While I wonder separately about this pivotal moment in my life let’s jump into what I’m wishing for right now…
Why is it when you immediately put on a blazer your entire mood changes? You can go from “I feel like garbage” to “I feel chic.” Blazers have always been a favorite go-to item in my closet. At a certain point, I had quite a few blazers that I owned. Even a sweater blazer from GUESS… which I may or may not still have in my possession.
I’d like to share a few different ways I enjoy wearing a blazer. All of these have one item in common: denim.
Alright, alright. My damn hair. There is A LOT OF IT. So I guess I should talk about it right? Let’s set the record straight on what type of hair I have: T H I C K AS HELL/HEAD OF HAIR/MY HAIRDRESSERS ARM WORKOUT.
Oh, and it’s long too.
The shopping carts and favorites, likes, wishlists items on all of my favorite brands or store websites are always full – why? Because I love to shop but I can’t always justify the daily shopping. Especially after researching what sustainability is, I feel incredibly guilty now when I want to buy something.
So this will be a series that I hope to keep up with and make final decisions about my monthly wishlist. This won’t just be strictly fashion items either, I’m going to throw in some beauty products, tools, random Amazon items that may or may not include a bear jacket from Workaholics.
Let’s jump into it, shall we?
Want to know what my favorite items in my closet are this month?
No one: No.
OK I’M GOING TO SHARE IT ANYWAY…
My two favorite colors: black and white. It is a no brainer that I’d select an outfit that has these colors. During my time away I really reflected on my personal style, how I can take it to the next level and finding that balance between grunge and girl power.
It’s easy to see that I’ve been bitten by the travel bug within the past few years. Most of my trips were within the states to test the waters. This trip… I flew outside of my comfort zone.
My birthday fell on a long weekend. And I wanted to go on a small trip. It reminded me of how stressful it can be to rely on other people to do things. I love planning events but it comes with stress and often triggers my anxiety. I wanted to go away for my birthday, that was my goal.
I could write a lot about this outfit but this really was the easiest look I have put together recently. It was so effortless, fun and incredibly me.
The pants are a statement. The shirt is simple and as always my converse sneakers are on…
