Vogue Made Me Do It

30th June 2014

Today’s post will be short and sweet, like my little chub of a french bulldog, Waffles who was too busy spazzing out to be captured in this photo (I blame his Mother, who had the genius idea of taking these pre-dog park).

Lately I’ve been obsessed with graphic tee’s, and who can say no to a vogue inspired fashion one? Not this girl, that’s who!

 Ever since I fell in love with this T boutique Vogue Made Me Do It tee I have been wearing it non-stop – around the house with sweats, paired with a mini and heels, with boyfriend jeans while walking Waffles or tucked into a midi skirt with pumps at the office. My favorite way to wear it plays on the current sporty trend by pairing this must-have tee with a 80’s-inspired side pony and nike’s. 

I’ve been wearing sporty styles on repeat (here, here and here) and even wrote a little article for Jet Magazine about them. They are just so practical for NYC wanderings, that it’s no wonder (and about time) stylish sneakers came into style.



To tackle this trend I actually just knotted my tee over this dress to transform this pretty pink number into a skirt (one of my favorite tricks). Adding my Zara chockerpolka dotted hair tie and nike’s helped round out this sporty style – perfect for a post-work trip to the dog park with Waffles.
I’ve talked about our walks before and how this pamper pooch always ends up getting carried which is basically my weight lifting work out for the week…. Okay, month. He is 25 pounds of pure muscle and stubborn as a mule. I love him to pieces but when he decides to suddenly quit walking when we are still 3 avenues away from my apt, I have to pick up the royal heinous and double as his Taxi ride home – rough life Waffles, rough life.
Don’t worry, Paris captured the moment via instagram, for your enjoyment

To the Gym & Beyond

21st June 2014

I think there is absolutely no reason not to look cute at the gym! Back in my dancing days (did you know I was a competitive dancer? friends/colleagues of mine have even gone on to dance and star on glee, compete and win SYTYCD and even dance on tour with Beyonce and Lady Gaga!) I always had to get ready for class, even if I was just going to sweat it up! I am a firm believe that if I do not look my best, I can’t do my best! When I used to do Yoga the girls I would take with would always make fun of me because I would always show up in no makeup except for my red lipstick, wearing a headband or bow in my hair without fail … so yes, looking your best at the Gym or wherever you work out is a must!

MY OOTD:
Top: Audrey Hepburn Tie Tank Top (also love this one)
Leggings: Forever 21, I also wear and love these revisable ones 
Shoes: Reebok Skyscape – I’m obsessed read why here
Okay, I’m going to be really honest here – I have never been a big gym rat. With work and blogging I don’t have much free time and like to spend it shopping (that counts as cardio right), enjoying NYC or with Paris / Waffles. As a result, my “work out” is walking to and from work everyday (20 blocks and 3 avenues… that counts right?), walking Waffles and our occasional “sprints” – and by sprints I mean we run for about thirty seconds before Waff lays down and I have to carry him home… gotta love our “fit-fam” quality time ;]

Little Red Pineapple

5th June 2014

Sporty styles are here to stay! I’ve packed my stilettos away in my kitchen – yes, I keep my shoes in the kitchen… I order take out like its my job so I had to fill my empty kitchen cabinets with something – and started stepping into crazy-cool slides!

My OOTD:
Belt: Saks 5th Avenue basic gold black belt via My Sisters Closet in AZ
Purse: Coach Bleeker Pinnacle Crossbody in Painted Snake – obsessed with this one
Earring: DIY Giant Pearl stud (post coming soon), similar at bauble bar
Jacket: Nordies Black & Gold Moto Leather Jacket 
P.S. Receive 10% off all bucket feet use the code COLORME10

 Ever since attending the BucketFeet opening party for their soho popup shop (see the post here), I’ve been living in their sneakers. These pineapple ones are as hilarious as they are stylish and a great conversation starter. I have even started wearing these sporty slip ons to work – gasp. But hey, I work in fashion and sporty styles are on trend so I don’t see anything wrong with twirling through the office halls in a full dress & stylish slides – right?

Before you go, here’s a little blooper pic… #ToddlerSmile ?

Highlighter

14th May 2014

Today, Waffles and I are taking a walk on the bright side with contrasting highlighter hues and my new neon reebok skycapes!

My OOTD:
Top: Neon Zara Boatneck Sweater (similar + cute cropped ones here)
Jeans: Joe fresh white stretch denim jeans, love these Levi White Jeggings
Necklace: Chanel inspired pearl Zara choker – 5 ways to wear it here
Shoes: Reebok Skyscapes – I’m obsessed full story here
Waffles is wearing Jonathan Adler leash & collar (old, shop other styles here)
Spring has brought out a surprisngly casual side of my style and I’ve been wearing sporty sneakers on replay all season long. After visiting the Reebok Skyscape event and bringing home a pair of my own, I have been reluctant to take them off. I’ve even resorted to wearing these and/or my nikes (last seen here) with dresses and skirts to give this sporty trend a girly twist (like I did at Waffle’s birthday party here). I need to step into some stilettos soon or I’m afraid I never will again … okay, who are we kidding, I’ll probably be wearing sky high heels tomorrow.

Have you tried trading in your stilettos for sneakers this season?
