While at New York Fashion Week I took advantage of free time I had to shoot a couple of outfits. First up, one to bring you from summer to fall.
Bold prints can be worn year round, but the end of summer is really the last chance you can make bright florals work with the upcoming elements (at least that’s true if you live in the north East Coast, since if you are Los Angeles and Miami you can wear the print all year round). I styled a blue floral-geo print short sleeve button down from Express with black accessories and a tee to contrast the shirt, but added a pair of cerulean blue slacks to balance the overall look. Along with my accessories like the Frank & Oak canvas and leather backpack and Kenneth Cole leather slip-on kicks, I also show the ultimate fashion week essential; a Mophie juice pack helium battery phone case in a metallic green. Seriously, I sadly would not have survived without from all the shows, events, and street style and backstage coverage I did while at NYFW. See more of the look below:

In this edition of Daily Essentials, I focus on accessories in the color that you can never go wrong with, black. Chic by definition, having an outfit or accessories set based on black will always look good. However, it can look better and last you longer when you move from fast fashion items and upgrade to more luxurious products. Read the rest of this entry
When packing for a long trip that will last six days or more, it’s important to bring along grooming products that would be most essential to save on luggage space. While you can of course buy anything else you’d need during your travels, the following should be enough for most essential (and basics) needs while leaving you ready for each day: Read the rest of this entry

Shopping the other day I couldn’t help but notice all the different non holiday-related sales going on. The retail gods must’ve learned it’s my bday this week and wanted to surprise me or something. In case you haven’t had a chance to take advantage yet, or are worried there’s nothing left, here are my favorite on sale boots, shoes and kicks that are perfect for the transition into the spring weather ahead:
I couldn’t help but notice all the different trends that were present among the fall/winter 2014 collections, especially the ones you can use now as we close out winter and enter into spring. My favorite looks for each below:

Whether it’s for everyday use or travel, you can’t go wrong with a good tote bag. Leather totes can be used year round, and are great for work if you need your laptop or have a lot of paperwork to carry. Step up your tote game with the various faux and real leather styles below:

Adding extra style and personality to a person’s outfit, headphones are a statement accessory and part of our daily lives. From my In The Bag series, I styled my Marley Liberate On-Ear Headphones (which I fell in love with for its mixed-media design of stainless steel, natural wood and the brand’s blend of reclaimed hemp and organic cotton) with a winter-ready outfit with on tones based off its color palette: blue, grey and brown.
Shot just before the winter storm hit, the UGG Ory boots would’ve had no problem handling Janus with its waterproof leathers and Thinsulate technology for warmth.
