A look back at NYFW

BLOUSE (similar here), PANTS, ACNE BAG(c/o) MONNIER Frères

Agenda: New York City!

I remember counting 1, 2, 3, 4… blisters on my toes from (unnecessarily) wearing heels two weeks straight. I remember having hunger pains from not eating lunch and dinner (there’s like no time). I remember having the biggest bags under my eyes (and no, I’m not referring to Prada although today’s bag is worth mentioning. More on this in a second…) And I remember having the biggest smile on my face.

Long live the 90s

What’s (sorta) new?

And just like that we’re back to the ‘90s…

Mhm, (hit us) baby one more time!

I mean who didn’t love watching Friends or jamming out to the theme of Fresh Prince (yes, I know all the words to the song in case you’re wondering). Remember when Spice Girls took over? And MTV? Let’s not forget Queen Selena, too.

Wow, talk about memory lane. It’s hard not to get nostalgic without a nod back to ‘90s fashion, too. Are you already thinking Clueless or Sex and the City? Samesies.

Accessories Galore!

BLOUSE, SHORTS: H&M/ACNE STUDIOS BAG: (c/o) Monnier Frères

If you’re like me, you rely on accessories to elevate your outfits. I personally love dressing looks up with an everyday bag that complements the season, the right pair of earrings to add that “pop” and well… there’s always room for more, I guess. The truth is, the right accessories make all the difference. You can wear them multiple times, multiple ways. So why not invest in them?

Let me fill you in on an online retailor where all the difference is made for me. Two (French) words: Monnier Frères. Legit the best accessories from Paris (to everywhere) in just one click!

PAPERBAG PANTS: similar here, here and here/SCARF: old/BEACH BAG: Free People, similar here/SANDALS: more options below!/EARRINGS: vintage Valentino

Was it a week ago? Two weeks ago? One month ago? I don’t know, can’t remember. Time seems like a blur lately (but in a good way) so please excuse me for not knowing!

As I slipped into my bathing suit in Cartagena, I realized I didn’t bring a cover-up with me so I grabbed a midi skirt and ran downstairs to meet Chelsea, my photographer, for breakfast and a quick photoshoot. Only to realize that my outfit was pretty cute! “Who would have thought a bathing suit could double as a top?” I thought. Chelsea encouraged me to shoot the swimsuit (with the midi skirt). The pictures came out great! I loved it so much, I decided to post it to IG and the response was fantastic.

Which left me dreaming up the many possibilities of swimsuits…

100% MINERAL INVINCIBLE SETTING POWDER: (c/o) Supergoop! via Sephora

Swim Week, July 2017. I’m in Miami Beach and the temperature outside is easily 98 degrees with 100% humidity. Forgot looking cute. I was happy to look “dewy” not sweaty. I run into my old friend Katie from NYC who says, “how do wear makeup in this heat?!” as she takes out a blotting paper to save whatever makeup is left on her skin. My reply, “setting powders; that’s my secret…”

Earlier this week, I met with a friend for coffee in Palm Beach. Our date was first thing in the morning so naturally, I rushed to get ready because I’m not a morning person. I figured afterwards I would stop by some of my favorite consignment stores to see what’s new. Side note, Palm Beach is known for having some of the BEST consignment stores in the country.

Ditching the corporate life to run a small business is no cake walk. And it’s most certainly not as sexy as people think it is. You invest an incredible amount of time, hard work, money and passion into your dream with the hope of it taking off one day. You struggle with work/life balance. Have trouble turning “it” off at night. And feel like you’re running a marathon – more like the Iron Man. Not a sprint.
