The Old Navy Dress Everyone Is Wearing

This dress has been making the rounds on Instagram lately and for good reasons.

It's affordable, it's cute and amazing quality.


It's from my rediscovered favorite, Old Navy.

Side note, it's kind of interesting how Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy are all sister brands with similar styles but Old Navy is killing it. They're so quick to deliver on value and trends in recent years that I highly recommend popping into your nearest store or surfing their newest arrivals here. 

However, you should keep in mind you get what you pay for. Namely, the sizing still needs a bit of work as I find most pieces to run big. To be fair, Zara doesn't have the best sizing reputation either so this is where you handy neighborhood tailor comes in handy.

Another summer staple you'll want to use daily... Sunscreen. Not only is it the most powerful skincare product we can use against premature aging and skin cancer, but they're so many different variations and formulas. There's no excuse to not make it a part of your daily routine.

I've been using this one from La Mer religiously, mainly to finish the formula before it expires, but these always make their way back into my skincare routine. This one from Asia, in particular, is my ABSOLUTE favorite.

I couldn't end this post without mentioning how much I love this photo series by Mark. We connected on Instagram, decided to meet up and shoot around Long Island City. He's honestly so talented so make sure you check out his page here.

We shot two looks so can't wait to share the second look with you soon!

The Little Pink Dress I Almost Forgot About

This season, I've been trying to go above and beyond to organize my little space of the internet and life. I cleared out my inboxes and then got rid of any old paperwork from 2016. And let me tell you... it felt great clearing out all that useless clutter.

Among the clutter, I found a few old photo sessions that never made it live - which sucks because if I were to think back to that day I clearly remember being frantic, late and/or cold.


I need to do better about posting them all and on time.

Regardless, I'm going to go ahead and post them all even if it doesn't seem seasonally appropriate :). And with that I bring you the first "found" look - the pale pink Ramy Brook dress that I (still to this day) adore!

It's incredibly sheer so it's definitely not for the meek but I highly advise wearing a sheer tube layering piece underneath, like this.

I recall taking these photos when there was a still a chill in the air which explains the wool coat haha. But I would still style it the same way at the same temperatures.

But once summer hits, I lose the coat and the over the knee boots and go with something a little more practical and cute like gladiator sandals and possibly an oversized denim jacket.

If this sheer isn't your style take a look at Ramy Brook for other options. They have so many cute dresses and tops for the Boheme in all of us.

Spring’s Sneaker Refresh with Reebok

Today's post has been sponsored by Reebok. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make this blog possible!

Can you feel that? Spring is in full effect - finally! I almost lost hope after NYC was inundated with foggy skies, rainy mornings, and chilly gusts of wind.


With spring rearing it’s gorgeous weather it’s time for me to start prepping for the glorious, warmer weather. By now we should all know how much I love rituals and traditions. For Spring, it’s pretty simple and ranges from a deep cleaning of my home, a well-deserved spa day, and (my favorite) adding new select pieces to my spring uniform.

I always start with what goes on my feet and work my way up. I’ve always gotten excited about new footwear and it’s what I’ll be wearing most during the season.

With a few travel plans in the work and since I tend to be on my feet 20x more the first thing I look at are sneakers. I need light shoes with the perfect amount of support – enter Reebok's ZOKU RUNNERS.

These sweet kicks are the latest to come from the line and I’ve had the pleasure of testing them out by running NYC in them. First off, they are so comfortable and light they’ve been in heavy rotation since I got them. The next thing I’m loving is the seamless knit style which gives it a sock-life fit. And for those that are keeping up with the sneakerhead news, flyknits are trending heavily for their sleek design.

Because of the heathered material used, I’ve been styling them a lot with my looser fitting pieces and neutrals. I wouldn’t be opposed to styling them with my running tights or slinky dresses.

If you’re interested in trying these out for yourself, click here to learn more and see the colors available. P.s. the sizing is pretty accurate too – no need to size up or down.

As always drop me a line if you have any questions!
