Favorite Cities

This post came to me whilst on the train wedged between two strangers in a desperate attempt not to spill coffee all over myself. Staring out at the city I live in, I realized the vitality of it all. The busy streets, stores and subways all contribute to the aesthetic of New York. As much as I love my city, I started thinking about the others I’ve visited and the charm they hold Manhattan may not.

Two of my favorite cities have to be London and Paris. Now these are the two most common cities but they’re freaking awesome so I see why. Starting off with Paris. The fact that I can see the sky from the ground without tilting my head surprised me. We all know New York’s skyscrapers enclose us in our own little glass fishbowl. Aside from that, walking through Paris automatically gave me a feeling of nostalgia. Of what? Oddly enough, the history it holds that I never quite experienced. I felt like I was living in a classic french film and the love of my life was waiting for me with a cup of coffee on some bench (unfortunately it never happened). Each block held a similar but new creation that left me wanting more.

Next stop, London. If anybody knows me they know I never shut up about London and I probably never will. I visited London hopeful and left with a new longing and obsession I didn’t think I would adopt. The people, stores, architecture and overall way of life mesmerized me. To many they think London is just a rainy old city, but I see it as a new discovery.

Celeb Spotlight: Selena Gomez

I’ve been a personal fan of Selena Gomez since Wizards of Waverly Place. Anyone else? I loved her, but I specifically loved her fashion choices. Starting off she was a bit of a tomboy, which I loved because she embodied my style as a thirteen year old, but as she grew up so did her fashion.

As most can see from the copious amounts of pictures of her leaving an airport or picking up some food, she loves monochromatic and basic pieces that she tends to put her own twist on.  She ranges from jeans, a t-shirt and heels to a cute dress and booties, which makes it that much more interesting when new pictures surface.

Another thing I love is her effortlessness. Everything she wears looks like she put A LOT of effort into it, but probably thought about it an hour before walking out the door. Nonetheless, I would kill to have her wardrobe and pull off half of the things she does, so hats off to you Selena.

 

 

DUMBO, BROOKLYN

Dumbo, Brooklyn the smallest, but busiest “town” in New York. One main street connecting to a bunch of tiny side streets makes this place both quaint and modern, making everybody who enters fall in love. I know I did walking through on this chilly and windy day, but don’t worry we braced the cold and got the pictures down!

 

 

Celeb Spotlight Gigi Hadid

So I’m starting this new series of posts which puts a spotlight on some of my fashion inspirations. There’s a plethora of celebs who have amazing style so I’d like to highlight some of their pieces and what’s so good about them.

So my first is Gigi Hadid! We all know she has some of the coolest style on the street today and everybody and their mother’s wants to be like her. Plus, her style is very easy to recreate which puts us ordinary folk at an advantage. While making my daily rounds on Tumblr or Instagram, I always see new posts about her and her street style so I’m always finding myself purchasing similar shoes or jeans. (oops!)

What I love about Gigi’s style is that she mixes high fashion items with inexpensive, fast fashion pieces. The mix and match effect creates a cool dynamic that really adds to the charm of her style, which I have come to appreciate. She is always sporting basic shirts and a nice pair of jeans with a statement bag, jacket or shoes, as you can see with her snakeskin boots up top or the studded leather jacket. (To die for by the way!) Also, the blue leather jacket is so smart because it speaks for the whole outfit. The outfit itself is basic, but the jacket gives it a pop of color and a bit of edginess that ties it all together. It can be worn on a day out with friends or even a low key date, so the versatility of it is awesome, just like all of her outfits.

 

 

 

 

How To Wear Adidas Superstars/White Sneakers

As we know, white sneakers preferably Adidas Superstars are all the rage. (and for all good reasons) They have recently been seen everywhere on the streets, styled with so many different pieces and patterns. We have seen them on some of the hottest celebrities as well as that girl who sits next to you in math class. They are some of the most comfortable and trendy shoes that are so versatile and manageable, there is no reason not to purchase them.
When they first came out I remember seeing them on everybody which kind of pushed me away, but looking at them more I realized what all the hype was about. (They’re freaking awesome!) Hopefully they stay relevant in the world of street style and become timeless pieces because they are definitely worth it.

 

Ending The Year Right

So 2015 is already over and I can’t believe it. This by far has been one of the coolest years in fashion and I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store. Now as you can see from the pictures, turtlenecks have been my absolute favorite pieces from this year and they better be just as popular in the new year. A turtleneck is timeless and can be styled in so many different ways, from a chunky knit to under a leather jacket or coat. It is the one piece that can be worn to be extremely comfortable or extremely chic, which is why it’s at the top of my list. So in the upcoming year, make sure you all go out and buy one for your wardrobe and rock it which ever way you wish.
