It's A Pastel World | I'm Just Living In It

A little past noon in paradise is like a little past 5PM somewhere else. Lunch by the pool, happy hour the next minute and a quick dip in the ocean and a nap before dinner. What an agenda to have indeed. It's so true! I am the happiest under the sun, under the palm trees in a world of color and pastels. Contrary to my facial expressions in all of these outtakes, I was the happiest in The Bahamas. I absolutely love reminiscing back on my travels especially when the weather back home starts to feel like a vacation.

The sunny spring days are here to stay and I've gone to my favorite ice cream shop twice for a heaping scoop of lychee in less than 24 hours. As I look back on my camera roll from January, I realized there are two types of mules in my life that I simply can't live without. One that includes a bottle of ginger beer and the other that makes me feel like I'm walking on sunshine. I guess Moscow Mules can do that to me too but you absolutely get the point. I'm currently stocking up on my go-to kind of shoes for spring and summer to pair with easy-going ensembles such as slip dresses, rompers or denim, just to name a few.

The Bahamas sparked this idea of a never-ending summer in my mind and I cannot wait to live more freely, take life as it comes and react positively to life's hurdles. 

And I'll do it in a pair of mules. Take your pick.

Twenty Fifteen Things.

Year 2014 is coming to an end (in like a day) and I can't help but think of the day I launch this blog with the rest of the world in 2015. This space on the world wide web is where I document my thoughts, my career and (of course) my wardrobe!

Yesterday, I explored the streets of Dumbo with an awesome friend-photographer, Christopher Zranchev. This late in the month of December and the weather in New York feels like autumn, we had to take advantage!

Draped in layers of black, white, fur and prints, I mixed and matched every single piece to recreate a new look while wearing my Chero shoes by Shellys London.

There's something about being shot and being in front of the camera. I embody this side of myself that knows how to pose and knows how to work a camera when in reality, I trip over smooth sidewalks, run into glass doors and fall going UP the stairs. Somehow, I exude this confidence that I don't normally have. It's weird.

Finally feeding my "passion for fashion" is truly a breath of fresh air especially when someone is equally as determined to feed their own passion. It's so cool when someone understands when you ask them to take a picture of what you're wearing. It's similar to when a photographer wants to stop and snap a shot at a random street corner because they see something interesting you don't necessarily see until you look at the photograph.
