NYFW Recap

Day 1: Day 1 of Fashion Week was pretty chill for me, it mostly consisted of planning looks and events for the week. I had a dope workout at Arlo Soho with Surfset thanks to the awesome people behind the Into App. I’ve never surfed before so that class was intense! I ran over to […]

Skirts And The City: Part i

This is the first post of a two-part series on how to style skirts this summer! I always find myself reaching for crop tops and cut-off shorts, or I’ll spice it up with a dress (out of laziness) but I wanted to step out of my sometimes tomboy-ish comfort zone. Thus, this two part series […]
