Hi there!

I’ve been MIA since getting back from our amazing European adventure and focusing on acting work in LA. I wanted to share this beautiful look on the blog since I have been obsessing over eyelet since last summer (remember my LoveShack Fancy mini eyelet number I put on the blog?) and this Free People maxi is my fave thing right now! It was even on sale recently! I paired it with the For Love & Lemons “Royale Crop Top.” I love the puffy sleeves and small bow detail. I made it casual with a gold espadrille flat and finished the look with my Balenciaga Mini City bag and Ettika jewelry! The seashell detail had me feeling like a real mermaid!

Hi there! 

Continuing with the LA theme, while I was out there I styled another recent Free People top (called the “embroidered bell sleeve top” from Nordstrom that I just love! I’m wearing it with a studded ankle boot, Old Navy flares, and a suede moto jacket from Nordstrom by Vigoss. I finished the look with my Balenciaga Mini City crossbody purse. I always love Grand Central Market in downtown LA and it’s food options including an amazing breakfast place called “Eggslut.” I love LA!

There are so many fun boho looks everywhere right now, and even in the cold you can style the tops with layers;). Stay tuned for holiday looks next up!

Hi there! 

Here I am in Positano on Italy's Amalfi Coast recently, wearing 12th Tribe's Midnight Rose Wrap Crop and wrap skirt set. I felt like the flamenco dancer I am in this look, and I recently wore it again for opening night of my West Side Story contract at the Ivoryton Playhouse which is running now through July 30th on the Connecticut Shoreline!

This look is so fun and flirty for summer. I accessorized with  Jack Rogers gold wedge sandals and my Balenciaga Mini City purse as well as gold shell earrings from a small Brazilian boutique in Recife. 

Positano was absolutely beautiful I could barely stand it. What a dream vacation destination! Francisco and I stayed with my Godmother and her husband in his family home that has been in his family for generations. Positano has a rich history and is blooming now, the beaches and shops and restaurants are all amazing! Here I am below wearing the same look in Savannah, GA on a recent trip.

Hi there!

One of my favorite trends this Spring is the off the shoulder trend. It looks effortless, bohemian, and sexy without trying too hard.  Exposing the shoulder is a subtle and elegant way of showing a little skin and feeling feminine in your clothes.

In the outfit pictured above I paired a baby blue off the shoulder top I recently bought at Zara with my older Zara pink moto jacket, Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply ripped boyfriend jeans, Valentino rock stud baby pink flats, and my new Balenciaga Mini City purse.  The long necklace is also an older piece from Free People that I just love.  

Once again I decided to play with feminine touches mixed with a little edginess in the studs on the shoes and on my bag, the motorcycle jacket, and a ripped baggy boyfriend jean to offset the girly pastel colors and flowy off the shoulder top.

Francisco and I went to dinner at Sugar Factory in the Meat Packing district after our High Line stroll, and it was delicious.  I have a sweet tooth and that restaurant has the best drinks and dessert options.  We opted for the peanut butter and chocolate fondue! Later in the weekend I ventured to dinner and drinks with friends at Cata in the Lower East Side for my birthday as well as dinner at Spice Market on a separate night with my girlfriends I've known since I was in middle school who came into the city to visit.  Last weekend was the perfect birthday weekend and I really couldn't have asked for more!

Two Pieces & Balenciaga

Here I am in my new Balenciaga Mini City bag, Valentino rock stud heels, Reformation two piece, and Bebe leather biker jacket. Photography by Francisco Graciano.

Hi there!

Spring has sprung in New York City and at the moment I'm loving my Reformation two piece crop top and skirt. I love how Eco friendly they are as a company and their clothes are always effortlessly chic and fun to wear. I styled my two piece with my Valentino red and nude rock stud heels, Bebe black leather biker jacket and new Balenciaga pink Mini City bag. 

I played with edginess and flirty girly fashion on this look, which is something I always like to try. However I've also styled this look with platform lace up ankle booties and a choker for a more 90s look. 

My new Mini City bag is the perfect size for being on the go and the color matches a lot of my spring looks.

Happy Spring! The weather makes me want to eat outside and get macaroons at La Duree on Madison ave in my Upper East Side neighborhood like I was doing in this photo:)
