NYFW: Water Street

Day 1 of New York Fashion Week
NYFW Look 1
New York Fashion Week has been on my bucket list for as a long as I can remember. And I can’t believe that I’m living this dream right now. 

I was so stressed out about what to wear this week… I literally packed and repacked 3 times. I ended up packing one of my favorite sweaters this season and this nautical collared blouse and realized that I could layer the two pieces. There’s still snow on the ground in New York so it’s not practical to walk around with bare toes…so the We Are the Northwest project inspired me to help make socks and sandals cool again. These thigh high socks not only kept my toes warm, but they also worked as a nice layer underneath my jeans. Lastly, this moto jacket was a last minute purchase (literally 8pm the night before I left) but has been well worth it so far!

This look is a feminine winter to spring chic. I’m taking my blush/pink tones easily into spring but I know we still have a few more weeks of winter so I’ve got my socks and jacket on!

Aside from this look, I wanted to give a special shout out to Ashley Jacklyn from @jacklyn.lune. We met two seasons ago as Style Ambassadors for American Eagle Outfitters. I absolutely love it when your instagram friends become your real friends. She is an incredible photographer and I’m so happy we finally got to meet!

Relax, Escape, Thrive: My Spavia Experience

In 2017, I'm focusing more on health and wellness. I truly believe in self care both emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Between work, class, blogging, working out, and everything else I've got going on life, it's easy to beat up my body with day to day stresses. I hardly ever treat myself to massages and facials, but I think it’s important to reward myself every once in a while.

3 Things Corporate America Expected Me to Know Out of College


College: My senior year of college was a blissful year. I had locked down a full time job by December and by spring quarter I was out at happy hours and going out with my friends every weekend (and Wednesdays…and Thursdays). My blissful times ended as I graduated, relocated to Southern California, and started my career with a PepsiCo.
