I didn’t say how you had to move it … 

I joined forces with my fellow NYC blogging gals Alyssa from A-Listed , Lauren from PR Blonde  and Stef from Style Safari for an grueling workout of sorts here in NYC, better known as taking over the kids playground for an afternoon-o-fun and showing you just how many ways there are to wear this athleisure trend that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.  I went all in pairing my Alexander Wang x H&M sports bra (old, similar here, here and here) with these white leather Adidas shorts, a black satin bomber jacket, classic Nikes, classic Ray-Ban aviators and gave this black and white look a pop with a neon pink Rebecca Minkoff cross-body and a bold pink lip thanks to this MAC shade. Though put your own spin on the look, dip your toes in just a bit and I promise you won’t regret it. I’d pair these Adidas shorts with a black tank and a pair of black sandals. These Nikes are in constant rotation, from jeans to LBLDs as I showed you here. The Rebecca Minkoff cross-body can go with everything you own, I promise. I’ve also picked up a pair of white Adidas to add to my every growing sneaker collection.  Check out A-ListedPR Blonde and Style Safari for more pics of their own takes on the athleisure trend and of course get the deets on their outfits!

Here, There & Everywhere In Between

Travel
I am adamant about not neglecting this blog, it’s a passion project of mine, a creative outlet that I love and at times a escape. If you haven’t noticed I took a teeny tiny hiatus as of late due to my recent travel schedule taking me here, there and everywhere. My day job provides me the opportunity to travel quite a bit, which I enjoy aside from those brutal red-eyes back from the west coast, however {there is always an exception and a ‘grass is always greener on the other side} it does not allow me to be in my destinations long enough to explore them so I must maximize my time in each.  How does one approach enjoying a city often times in less than 24 hours? Well, when traveling on these quick trips I have realized my priorities … I must visit a great restaurant, a fantastic bar, stay at a cool hotel and get caffeinated at a wildly adorable yet delicious coffee shop. PRIORITIES. So I’ll be introducing a new series “The II Mini Travels” where I’ll be sharing a glimpse into these cities, what to wear and of course the spots that you must visit in each, even if you’re there for a while longer than I ever am. Can’t wait to share the first one with you next week!

t.g.i.f.f. LA Edition

California dreaming, roadtrip, travelHere’s to the weekend, bringing us one step closer to that wonderful thing called a three-day weekend, aka Memorial Day and thus the beginning of summer. While it’s not a three day weekend just yet, I say to hell with the laundry list of errands to run and simply enjoy every minute of it. I’ll be heading to Los Angeles for the weekend and can’t wait to try out a few spots that have either recently been added or have been on my list including Egg SlutFireflySidecar Doughnuts and of course a few pit stops at my faves including breakfast at Joan’s on Third and dinner at The Little Door. Not to mention this Eater post with my name written all over it … the 13 best avocado toasts in LA, sign me up. Aside from chowing down like bikini season isn’t right around the corner, I’ll be hiking in Runyon Canyon, hitting up a few flea markets, swinging by the Lolli swimwear sample sale and enjoying a little west coast living on the beach too. I guess there are worse ways to spend a weekend! Hope your weekend is wonderful!

70s wishes and denim dreams

Street Style, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, What I Wore, OOTD, NYC, New York, Denim, Alexa Chung x AG Jeans, 70s

One of the biggest trends this season is anything denim, literally anything denim, from a dress to culottes to jumpsuits to the reprise of the denim skirt. Don’t get me wrong, I’m backing this 100% from the flares and jumpsuits to the dresses but most importantly THIS denim skirt that is everything. Talk about a 70s throwback in style … the front-button, a-line, slightly flared mini is what life is all about and what everyone should have in their closet this season. Bravo Alexa Chung and AG for putting this skirt on the radar of every stylish gal in the world. Quite possibly one of the most versatile “trend” pieces we’ve seen in recent seasons this little beaut can be paired with just about anything.

What’s the takeaway here? A denim skirt is a quintessential spring wardrobe piece that you’ll regret not owning. I paired it with this cropped white eyelet number, vintage accessories and my Karen Walker sunnies from Ditto’s Endless Eyewear program (deets below on how to get your first month free.)
