Cords are back and better than ever. When my favorite blue jeans are in the wash, the next best thing is a classic pair of cords. Even better when it’s in a matching get-up. They’re soft with a little stretch….totally made for dancing. Starting today, I’m dedicating at least an hour of every single day to a little movement. That could be setting up my yoga mat in my living room for a good stretch or putting on my baseball cap for a long run along the waterfront. It could also mean blasting “Praise You” by Fat Boy Slim from my stereo and getting my dance on. I realize how important movement is for my mind, body, and soul. Maybe it’s time I get my booty back into a good hip-hop class. I find creativity comes in bursts, and it’s always when I let go and have a little fun. I’m working on so many exciting projects at the moment so it’s a major time for me to let those creative juices flow. Work doesn’t always have to feel like work.
There really is something magical about the faded pink walls at The Beverly Hills Hotel. It’s classic. It’ll never go out of style or feel out-of-date. Talk about an absolutely timeless location. I can get lost in it’s lush maze of bungalows, finding myself going in circles. When I’m in LA for work, I like any reason to take a lunch meeting at on of the most iconic spots of all time. I don’t know when will be the next time I’m in Los Angeles, but I’m hoping soon! I’m currently back in NYC, with a packed schedule and a few travels coming up. Think France, the Hamptons, and a few more amazing music festivals. Summer on the east coast is always extra busy. It’s prime time for shooting, along with fitting in that extra epic rooftop party. I had a shoot every single day this past week meaning waking up early for 5am call times. With that, I start my day off by slipping to my go-to: an easy printed dress. I count on this Etro number to immediately feel put-together no matter the time of day. Silk is my #1 fabric of choice because lately, comfort and ease are my best friends. I’m taking this Monday to finally get a full day plugged into my computer and catching up with conference calls and emails. There’s so much my team and I will be updating you on soon! I find it so important to take a slow Monday to get organized and energized for the week ahead.
