I am feeling myself in this brand spankin’ new Nanushka look. An elegant bodysuit and extra high waisted pant accentuates all the curves! I’m in a more minimal, no-fuss mentality lately. And it shows in how I get dressed. Think fresh color palettes and pretty neutrals. This feels multi-purpose in that I can take this bodysuit and giving it a tight and ballet slipper to hit the at-home dance floor in.
This may be my favorite dress in my closet. It’s simple yet totally complex. The cut, along with the way it wraps around the body, is pure art. It shows just the right amount of skin. Nanushka is also a brand that is currently pushing boundaries sustainably. This is a faux-silk piece that’s made to last and feels incredible on the skin. I can’t get enough of their vegan leather as well. If its good for the planet, it’s good for me.
I really hope each and everyone one of you were able to kick your feet up this long Memorial Day weekend. I just got back from Mexico City, and luckily for the holiday, I was able to catch up on sleep, and have a full movie day back home in NYC. I recommend you guys catch a glimpse of The Florida Project, and if you’re a 90’s Harrison Ford enthusiast, The Fugitive. I remember these long holiday weekends as ones to go out and dance the night away, but more and more, I’m finding these holidays to be ones to really relax, unwind, and stay in. Because I’m always on the go or living on an airplane, I really value the little downtime I actually get at home. The most wild parts of me come out in what I wear. Take this incredible Nanushka animal-print blouse and pant for example. Twin-sets have lately become my grab n’ go. I think I’ve already worn this set multiple ways, mixing and matching it with the newness in my own closet, or worn simply on it’s own. Easy, easy, easy. The most wonderful thing about Nanushka is their ability to completely elevate chic, vintage classics. I snagged this set at their new pop-up at Platform in Culver City. There’s always a part of my heart back in Los Angeles. There are times I really miss it. Like today…I would give anything to be under this clear, blue sky.
