Whoever said rules were meant to be broken must have known me. 

This look is proof (to my crazy ass) that you CAN wear white after labor day, dye your hair purple after 30 and rock a kimono without anyone yelling some ‘cultural appropriation’ bullshit at you.

We live in a crazy world where everyone is on high alert and ready to attack the moment you don’t fit in with normal expectations! I mean – Let me live my life! I adore this look and frankly, that is all that matters, right?

The purple hair come c/o of the team over at Matrix and the AMAZING Elements Hair Studio in Brooklyn. The team hooked me up with purple roots and a stunning silver rinse – perfect for fashion week and perfect for me. I can’t remember the last time I had normal hair.

The white after labor day rule is done. I didn’t even think twice about pairing this white dress with the white boots for this look. And for the record, I think white shoes are going to be a big trend this season – so much so I created a Pinterest board about it.

Now let’s chat about the kimono. I have been wearing this bad boy nonstop since I snagged it from ASOS and I am not mad about it. I can not tell you a number of compliments I have received since I started wearing it. It was literally a showstopper at fashion week and I can not wait to continue to style it into fall.

So, there ya have it –

Bum-Sculpting Leggings? Yes! You need the Sweaty Betty Power Leggings

I was born with a big booty. Not just a big booty – a WIDE booty. So anything that supports the sculpting of my booty is good in my book.

Allow me to introduce to you the Sweaty Betty, Power Leggings. These bum-sculpting power leggings are perfect for sweaty workouts or a casual coffee date in the West Village (like me above). To achieve this beautiful print the team over at Sweat Betty printed on a white fabric base, which resulted in a white shadow showing when stretched – this freaked me out for a minute but once I gave the power leggings a good look in the mirror I realized just how special these leggings are. These are truly the must-have legging for the fashion-forward woman who works out hard and plays harder – me.

Why do I think you should spend $120 on the power leggings?

  1. They are bum-sculpting (duh). They’ve sourced the best technical fabric with the perfect mix of stretch and recovery. The carefully placed seams sculpt the thighs and bum.
  2. You can wear them for over 7 sports.
  3. The sweat-wicking and quick drying technology are CRUCIAL for when you are training. Insert me (attempting) to train for my half marathon. I need to stay dry…or else (I won’t share the dirty details, but these benefits are crucial).
  4. They are super flattering – even after eating my weight in pizza this week in New York.
  5. The technical fabric will solve ALL of your problems.

Beauty: Travel With Me + My eos Lip Balm

First things first, can we take a minute and talk about the fact the I JUST discovered that the makers of the fantastic pastel egg shaped lip balms we ALL have in our purses eos stands for ‘evolution of smooth.’

Mind Blown

I feel like everything in my life just came together and everything makes sense. The eos or the evolution of smooth is pretty much the secret to travel. I am constantly on the road and my skin is constantly suffering from it. From running through security last minute at SFO to taxing on the runway at LAX – my travel diaries are long and not very luxurious. Do I wear makeup to the airport only to take it off the moment we take off? Is that what the cool girls are doing these days?

Insert me – the last person on the plane 99% of the time with my makeup on from the night before. What is the easiest thing I can do to help? Introduce all-natural products starting with eos lip balm. It is easy and compact and actually quite instagramable. It is a high quality, all-natural product yet with a drugstore price tag.

Now, these images are from my recent trip down south to Los Angeles from San Francisco. A girls trip for me to LA usually means a ton of shopping + sun. And while shopping + the sun are two of my favorite past times maintaining a fresh face can be a struggle after a long day of traveling and a ton of sun.

Look at me -no makeup and looking fresh oh-so fresh faced.

The day heel by Everlane has the perfect silhouette and is designed with a rounded toe, a walkable 2-inch block heel, and an elasticized back for extra comfort.
