CUBA TRAVEL GUIDE

It’s hard for me to put into words my week-long stint in Cuba this March. The closet I can get to embody the spirit of what I felt and saw can best be defined as magic. For me, Cuba holds a special place in my heart. I have long been a fan of the prolific and inimitable Ernest Hemingway, and knowing that he spent a vast majority of his adult life in Cuba piqued my interest years back. That, coupled with the fact that we as Americans legitimately weren’t allowed there for the past 50 years made my desire to go and see and experience this magical, forbidden place even greater. read more

WHITE SHIRT REDUX

One of the trends I really love for spring and summer is the creative reinvention of the white button down. Or as the fashion set is calling it, the white shirt redux. For quick clarification–redux means “brought back or revival.” Now I’m not saying that white shirts ever really went anywhere, but I predict we’ll be seeing white shirts worn in a variety of new ways and morphed into unique shapes and silhouettes. You guys know by now that button ups are a staple of mine, and I’m always up for a styling challenge… especially if it involves reinventing a classic! read more

THE TRICK TO PULLING OFF PINK EYESHADOW TREND

It’s easier than you think.

If there is one trend you want to try out this year, it’s going to be the pink eyeshadow trend. From pink winter coats, to candy-colored eyes and lips, to pink suiting, bubblegum hues are going to be just about everywhere. The pink eyeshadow trend has been big throughout awards season on Lily Collins, Emma Stone, and Sophia Bush. So I thought, let’s give this pink eyeshadow trend a go!

I dabbled in this trend slowly with a light pale pink lid a few months ago, and decided to go for it this week with pretty pink peepers courtesy of Too Faced’s Sugarpop palette in Bubblegum. I love the rich shade of this shadow and how it pops against my fair skin. For the lips, I adore this opaque pink gloss from Laura Mercier in Petal Pink. It’s moisturizing like a gloss but has the pigment of a lipstick, brilliant. The top I’m wearing is vintage and I figured I’d wear something neutral in this sea of pink 🙂 read more

WHY IT’S COOL TO WEAR LOGO TEES AGAIN

Bet you didn’t think logo tees were going to come back again did ya? Watch out–Juicy sweats might be next.

Nothing beats a cozy tee and jeans look–but sometimes, I spruce up the basics with, dare I say, a logo tee? I picked up this Calvin Klein logo tee at the Cabezon outlets a few months ago, and I want to buy more because the cotton is so soft and the fit is really good. And yes, logo tees are cool again thanks to Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Personally, I’m kind of digging them too.  read more

Exposed Fishnets Ripped Jeans

The fishnets trend has taken over, and one of my favorite ways to wear the look is layering them underneath a pair of ripped jeans. I love exposed fishnets ripped jeans and like how the fishnets peek out at the knees and the thighs, and are exposed a tiny bit at the waist. If you would have told me I would be wearing fishnets hanging out from my jeans  last year, I wouldn’t have believed it! But there is something so fun and undeniably punk about wearing fishnets ripped jeans, skirts, tights… and they look irreverent and cool. read more
