“Work It Girl!” Your Work Out Style Guide….From the Splurge to the Steal…all the #Outfitinspo you need for your #Workout – The Look #35

One of my big goals that I set two years ago was to make exercising a regular (as in a 3-4 times weekly) practice….. and right now I’ve officially completed 2 years of following through on that commitment!

I can honestly say I have hit the gym at least 3 Times each week ( with the exception of sick & travel days), and it feels sooooo good to say that! I feel so much better mentally & physically now & regular exercise helps me feel more productive & motivated.

I have to say though that at first it was hard and sort of unfamiliar to keep this kind of routine, but it truly is a great feeling to follow through on your goals and to really show up for yourself no matter what! Once you have truly made that commitment to yourself, nothing can stop you!

I think that one of the reasons it was so good to accomplish this is because I really got so tired of letting myself down with all the various projects that I would start and then stop over the years… After a while it just gets really old to live like this and…. just as you wouldn’t want to disappoint your loved ones, then why would you want to disappoint yourself ? If there is something you really want to do, the first step is the commitment in your mind (make that promise to yourself), and the second step is to just do it by finding a workout you love & taking the small steps towards what you want to do and sticking with it, either daily or weekly,…. but really just being determined to show up for yourself without worrying about the end results….trust me, you’re worth it!

Wether you are hitting the gym all the time or just getting started, there are so many cute clothing & accessories options out there in all different price points. I find that wearing neutrals mixed with fun brights or pastels are what gets me in a good mood and prepared for that workout or yoga session! Staying motivated can be a challenge but having the right outfit  will keep you on point & focused…..

Lets do this….

The Look #23- The Best Little White Dresses To Wear This Spring-Summer #Oufitinspo #SS17

Hope you had a great holiday weekend! I’m so happy that spring has finally arrived here in NYC & enjoying the warm weather….One of my all time favorite things to wear in the summer is a little white dress & this season will be no exception. A simple white dress screams Spring/ Summer & can be worn season after season as it actually never seems to go out of style….

For those who like improvising, add a cool studded belt, a fringed bohemian style bag or leather booties to wear it in a cool way. Simple, sexy & confident is the way to go!

Here is the outfit I wore for Easter brunch with the family…..this is one of my go-to favorites & I just love the lace fabric & off the shoulder details. I also like how it can be dressed up or down or even worn over a pair of jeans for your weekend adventures….

Shades of Pink for SS17-The Look #16

The Spring Summer season is right around the corner and it’s always fun to dream about what you will be wearing once it’s warm outside when it’s actually freezing cold and you’re bundling up in coats & layers every day. There are lots of different trends emerging for Spring/ Summer but one of the standout themes has been a feminine romantic look with a FOCUS on the color PINK.

Pink is the color of LOVE & is associated with OPTIMISM, ROMANCE & PLAYFULNESS. Kind of what we all need right now with everything that’s going on in the world…. It’s always a good idea to think positively and focus on what’s good in your life & wearing certain colors can really lift your mood and create a sense of fun!

Here are some of my new favorite PINK items for the Spring season. Some could be worn now & some later….I’m especially loving  the soft shades of DUSTY ROSE & BALLERINA PINK and all the RUFFLES, flowing CHIFFON fabrics & CUT-OUT details.

HAPPY (almost) SPRING!

The Look # 9- Grunge Meets Glam

The fall season is upon us & I’m looking forward to cooler temperatures. I’m loving a lot of the fall 2016 fashion trends, but I’m especially excited about the 90’s trend that’s been emerging lately. One of my favorite time periods in fashion history is the early 90’s when Anna Sui had her first runway show, Marc Jacobs creating his “Grunge” collection for Perry Ellis and a young Kate Moss burst onto the scene.

I loved Kate Moss’s effortless personal style & feminine but rock and roll spirit.  I also loved the rich colors, fabrics, prints & jewelry of the early 90’s that are just as inspirational today as they were back then.

I’m so looking forward to wearing animal prints, velvet, plaid & washed out denim this fall. Also love the look of dreamy flowing chiffon print dresses & tops with motorcycle boots.

Here’s some outfit inspiration for a 90’s inspired look for this Fall season…………..

BLOGGER STYLE: Last Days of Summer

All summer I couldn’t get enough of wearing off the shoulder tops & dresses while exploring my new hometown : New York City ! Here is one of my favorite looks from this summer season that I posted on Instagram.


I wore this outfit in Brooklyn at Afro Punk Fest. It was a super hot & sunny day at the outdoor music festival but a day filled with great music, inspiring people and loving, creative energy!

I cant seem to get enough of the off the shoulder look and this top was no exception. I like the simple styling with a pop of bold color & the crochet lace fabric.

I love the vibe and details of this off the shoulder top and the way it works well with simple denim cutoffs & a red lip & manicure. I can’t wait to wear it again this fall with black jeans & boots.

Sometimes it feels so good to put on something that’s just simply pretty! And what better time than for summertime in the city ? Lately I’m loving all the sweet pastels, muted tone romantic looks and ethereal dresses. You can toughen something sweet & soft with a little bit more of a hard edged accessory. Here is some inspiration & a touch of romance for a “Sweet Summer in the City” look.

The Look #3: Enchanted Fairytale

I’m loving all the dark bohemian floral prints for fall . You can easily add a little edge to your “woodland fairytale look” by pairing a floral dress with a Biker jacket or a great Faux fur coat. Complete the look with pointy heels or boots & some great accessories……
