Always being on the go, sometimes I feel like I just need to take a moment to breathe and take in the views and scenery in life. I am always so inspired by my surroundings and when on the West Coast I can't help but to take on the laid back lifestyle and incorporate it into my look that day. Effortless layering is key to the perfect cali vibe outfit, not just because after sunsets things cool down, but because it adds that certain edgy twist to your look. I am all about layering anything and everything, which is why I took this sheer Gentle Fawn blouse and paired it with their super cute laced dress. I love pairing patterns and pieces that are a little unexpected and different. I love taking something lacey and more dressy and pairing it with flats or booties to add the casual feel I like to go for. Whether it is from Beach to City or from Day to Night Gentle Fawn is such a perfect go to for west coast vibes in your closet this Fall.

Confession time: I have never done a cardio run workout before, but after hearing how satisfying it is to just pound the pavement and work your breath, heart and body all at the same time, I had to try. But running first thing in the morning is a totally different start to my day. I am so not a morning person! I’ve always wondered if being on a runner’s high would totally change the entire course of my day. Would I be more productive? Would I feel healthier and happy all day? Only one way to find out!My alarm went off at 6:00 a.m. (painful!) and at that moment, I felt like this was a bad idea that was not happening. No way was I about to give up an hour of sleep to exercise. Along with the full-body tiredness came “that time of the month,” giving me the perfect excuse to stay in bed under the covers.
I pushed myself to get up and face the challenge ahead: A morning run along Mother’s Beach with my dog. Is this what they mean by a runner’s wall? Because I nailed it. Kidding.
My dog was unbelievably excited about the early morning activities. I, on the other hand, took a bit longer to find my groove. But once I did, I felt great. During and after my run, I felt empowered, excited and refreshed. Hello, runner’s high! Once I got home, however, I crashed. This was the opposite of what I was hoping for!

Denim days are knocking on our door, yes some leaves have fallen that means its almost fall. Denim becomes a regular go to for transition season to cooler weather and Levis is an obvious go to. The way I take on NYC in Fall is by slowly layering some heavier fabrics and longer sleeves into my outfit mixes. This Levis denim shirt is the perfect ingredient to my pre fall wardrobe. Ombre and denim, two things I can not get enough of. As the weather in the city cools down I would without doubt add a pair of Levis jeans to this look and make it a full on denim tuxedo. But for now I am dashing in between meetings and events and recovering from Fashion week in a comfortable #LiveinLevis look.

I cant believe this week has came and left already. The craziness surrounding NYFW is such an exhilarating experience, the street style photographers that are on the hunt for great looks, the models strutting the runways and then rubbing shoulders with them as they dash between shows on the subways and surrounding the grounds of the tents. For the first day on the Fashion week streets I chose an all white ensemble layered with denim. White after labor day is a total go for me. My partners in crime Natalie and Dylana always with me running from one show to another, its always more fun to share the experiences with others. Day 1 highlights were as always the BCBG show and the amazing Coach presentation. Stay tuned for more and remember you can always follow me on instagram for live updates.

Vichy Idéalia Skin care got me living life to the fullest

Fashion week is all about being on the go, without ever barely stopping to just take a breath! Strutting your stuff with your best foot forward is always on my mind and the key to that is perfect, photo ready skin, as you never know who is going to snap a picture and where it will end up! Leading up to Fashion week and throughout the week in New York city, I have been using Vichy Idéalia to keep my skin and complexion looking smooth and bright and always ready for events and shows during fashion week. Another key to prepping for fashion week is to be organized! I always make sure to write down my events not just in my phone calendar but also in my trusty little note book! For some reason seeing it on paper makes it easier to remember once we are on the go, pretty much day and night. This innovative and exciting new skin care makes it easy to live life to the fullest and beat the busy jam packed days of NYFW, you can also grab yours at your local Ulta store.
