Been Ready For Fall

Summer was amazing, but Fall has its perks! New clothes, closed shoes, fun activities, and lots of layers! Slip-on sneakers have been my new favorite item of this past year, especially pairing them with a great straight leg jean. My struggle to find a great jean is real, especially when you have a booty and some muscular legs, going jean shopping or clothes shopping overall accumulates a lot of patience and time. My outcome to going jean shopping always results in a trip to Bloomingdales, where you can try on as many jeans as you want from several different brands they carry. One of my favorite brands is J Brand, they are always super light weight, stretchy, and form great to my shape. I like jeans that aren’t thick in layers because it makes you look bulky and also restricts your movement and I need something that will last me throughout the day in comfort and in style.

With this, I wore my new favorite ‘Pins and Needles’ sweatshirt from Urban Outfitters, also another comfortable go-to piece of mine and another is my snakeskin textured slip-on sneakers from the Gap. I went through hell and back to find these beauties in the neutral color, they sold out so fast that I checked the website everyday to find my size and as soon as they were up I snatched them! Comfort is key and also feeling good about what you are wearing. Your style reflects who you are and how you feel so always be true to yourself and you’ll always feel and look your best!

Comfort to Casual

Comfort is my best friend. Being involved in fashion since finding it an interest of mine at a young age, to attending pre-college classes, and in fact completing a four year bachelors degree at LIM College, I always thought that I had to look my best day in and day out. Within the years of being inspired by Manhattan culture, working countless internships and jobs, meeting many fascinating people, and reading various fashion blogs, I have learned that everyone has there own way of expressing themselves, no matter if you think they look good or not. You tend to realize and interpret what makes them feel most comfortable through their own appearance, and if you're like me and take in inspiration for positivity, change, and thought, you will then find yourself in their position and find happiness for yourself. I am not saying that I was never comfortable with what I wore or how I felt, but from high school to being a college graduate, A LOT had changed over the past four years that you sometimes need to revaluate yourself and accept it, because change is good.  

Overall, I love comfort. The days of wearing pants you can’t move in, shirts that are to short, and shoes that destroy your feet are over. I am more aware of what I put on my body, what looks right, what feels right and what I can get through the day with depending on what I have scheduled. With this, I love athletic gear. Anything stretchy, breathable, light weight and provides 100% comfort I am all for, especially since I go to the gym 5 days a week, I like to incorporate my leggings, sneakers, and tops into an everyday approach. Here I have on Lululemon leggings, my new Adidas Pure Boost, and my new Urban Outfitters crew neck sweatshirt. I tend to wear a lot of athletic attire when I am on the go, and it's a great transition from running errands and then making it to the gym!

Since graduating college and being thrown into the real world (work) shortly after, there was about two weeks of freedom for me before I started my new job. Shockingly, I was thrilled more then unhappy to start a new chapter in life, but unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the beach (my favorite place to be all summer). FINALLY after weeks of wanting to sit on my beach chair, toes in the sand, drinks in hand, salty air in my hair, and the sun roasting my skin... I made it! Nothing beats total relaxation in a bikini and some loose beach attire.

Sometimes just a little bit of print makes an outfit! Also, I am loving neutrals lately, anything warm, minimal, and clean so when I saw these espadrilles (steven), first I thought that they were not something I would usually buy since I am not a fan of animal print, but I knew once I tried them on that they had to be a staple piece in my summer wardrobe... Love them!

This is my favorite pair of overalls/ one piece/ go-to leather garment I own. I bought these overalls at Free People a few years back and when the warmer weather approaches, I can’t wait to break them out and wear them each spring and summer with new items I have collected throughout the year. Such as this linen striped Gap button down shirt and slip-on Jeffery Campbell sneakers, along with my black and gold cat eye Versace sunglasses. I bought them a few sizes up to give them an oversize approach, great for everyday wear. Plus they are super comfortable!

Double the trouble or double the swoosh? Can't go wrong with some Nike action to get you through a rainy day. Loving my new oversize mesh Nike logo tank, Top Shop high waist leather pants, BCBGeneration denim jacket and Nike Free Flyknit! (fav sneaker ever) Sporty casual? I say so.
