A little play on light versus dark. It’s during these really uncertain times that we should always choose to be the light. It’s amazing to see strong female voices being heard. To see our industry listen and really work harder to be more inclusive, thoughtful, and positive. Let’s keep the momentum going. Be the light.
Brooklyn is officially in bloom. I stopped to smell the roses here at the beautiful Cadman Plaza. I like to take evening strolls here, or sometimes you might find me zooming by on my bicycle. As evenings cool down, I like to throw on a duster and a great pair of boots. My other little tip in recreating this look is to take some of your favorite high waisted wide leg jeans and cutting them into bermuda shorts. Get creative! I’m feeling grateful for all the little bits of nature I can get right now. I’m busy this weekend planning a road trip escape for the 4th and everything pictured here will certainly be packed in my duffel bag. Only the classics.
There is nothing ordinary about this little black dress. I like how it combines streetwear with athleisure, yet has a sexy and sleek approach. I love partnering up with NO KA ‘OI. The way the Italian label plays with cut-outs and interesting shapes is like a work of art. It hugs the body in all the right places. NYC is heating up these days. As things reopen, I’m slowly slipping into mini dresses with the ease of a sneaker. Who else is so happy to finally be leaving the house? I’m jumping for joy.
Here is a new beautiful swimwear brand to love, coming straight out of Brooklyn. Meet Denizeri. Think extra bold hues and retro, sporty silhouettes. It’s timeless and designed for all women, made for both sport and leisure. I like mine with a swipe of electric blue eyeliner and giant earrings. It’s summer. Play with more color these days. Leave it to me to add a little glamour to the everyday.
