Spring is calling! Instead of sending her to voicemail, I answered after the first ring. And I have no intention of hanging up. I feel like I find myself away from this space for a two-month long radio silence every single time. At least I’m consistent about being inconsistent. For the most part of the year, my time has been spent elsewhere, the other side of the planet to be exact, growing and learning more about myself and the things that really matter to me. Winter ended and as it did, I find myself holding onto what holds me and letting go everything else.

The sun is beaming, the breeze is cool and the air is much lighter! This has got to be the best time of the year. One of the major aspect of my life that I hold to a pedestal is the way experiences and the way people make me feel good, specifically. I learned that being particular wit who, what and where you are is a necessity in this life. Know what you want, know what you don’t. I know I want only good vibrations! Unless it is catapulting me out of comfortability and into something more worthwhile, like flying to a different country or conversations that pass the small talks, I’ll be saying, “thank you, next.” It’s not personal, it’s just energy.

To keep things in my life further aligned with how good I feel, I don’t wear anything uncomfortable for the sake of good fashion. Style is style. And style to me means comfort and done right. Blank NYC Jeans called me too and they said they will be in Nordstrom! I’ve been wearing Blank NYC Jeans for quite some time now and it’s so good to hear they are launching their spring collection at Nordstrom. I don’t own a white jacket in my wardrobe that’s perfect for spring and so this soft, light crepe jacket with mesh under the arms is my current fave. I also love denim with a good fit. This ripped slim crop pant is stretchy but doesn’t stretch out. It fits consistently throughout the day and I love a good vintage feel. These two together is the perfect, effortless spring day outfit. It will definitely be on this season’s rotation.

Polar Vortex

For the first time in all of the fashion weeks that I've attended since sophomore year of college, I avoided the subway as much as possible. Winter is getting to me.

Aside from what I thought were powerful and empowering collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Prabal Gurung, Lacoste, Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Mr. Self Portrait, WhoWhatWear, Coach, Anna Sui, Ralph Lauren and many others, this season's New York Fashion Week not only took my breath away but it also swept me off of my feet. Of course I'm speaking in a more literal sense that I am figuratively. From sweater/ leather weather to two heat-techs and a heavy parka to raincoats and umbrellas in a matter of days, Mother Nature sure knew how to provide the best weather conditions to challenge all fashionistas who dared brave her wrath this season.

I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed the wind tunnel she created outside of the Artbeam on Monday (aka Day 5 of NYFW.) It's like she knew how much I liked candid hair action in my photos. Or being swept off of my feet even when it's not Valentine's Day.
Crazy wind chills and literally zero cabs in sight and my Lyft being ten minutes away, I opted for a photoshoot. And after my hands and face turned completely numb, I quickly wanted to forgo the idea and seek refuge in a much warmer place preferably with a burger and fries and a shake.

After Jason's fingers have fallen off from clicking the shutter too many times, our Lyft finally arrived. We  made a wise decision of heading straight to Black Tap
Craft Burgers and Beer.

If you've never been, you've got to!

James Dean, Is That You?

The uniform of the denim variety has been frequenting my daily looks lately. 

I'm not sure what generation the all-denim thing is from but denim in cinema has been popularized by so many amazing screen icons including James Dean.

I guess I like the sartorial manner it speaks about a person's personality without them actually saying anything. You know, similar to suits, denim demands assumption. It's the type of personality that is able to evolve through trends and time. 

I don't know if anyone even shares the same obsession of this ensemble as me but who cares – heard nobody really likes you when you're 23. I have five days left.
