I love all the colorful street art around the city. So when I saw this beautiful mural in Soho, I thought it would go perfectly with my favorite casual little black dress that I got a couple years ago at Old Navy. Having always been one for extremes, I simply can’t get enough of neon on black.
Just like the bright details make the painting magnificent, I topped off what started as a very basic look with my signature Kendra Scott Naomi Two Finger Ring and my favorite summer sweater that I actually got at Cosco.
If you’re wondering about the iPhone photo, yes, I totally have a cell phone case with my chandelier logo. My boyfriend got it for me for Christmas and I love it!
While summer is traditionally the time to make a much-needed pilgrimage to the Hamptons or the Jersey Shore, sometimes the most relaxing weekend plans are no plans at all. I’ve grown to love my relaxing unscheduled summer weekends in the city. This past weekend, I went to Roosevelt Island for the first time and fell in love with the wildflowers.
I’m wearing my casual summer uniform which consists of a Linen-Cotton Original Fit Shirt from Express paired with Dark Wash Denim Shorts. I absolutely love how light and airy this blue button up is for summer. I refuse to go anywhere without my purple Longchamp ‘Small Le Pliage’ Tote. My belt is from C4 Belts. I custom designed it from their incredible selection of colors and patterns. Being me, of course I picked the preppiest design, but you can pick one that best fits your personality. To top it off, I’m wearing my fav Juicy Couture sunglasses that I got back in 2009. I originally bought them because I loved Nicole Richie’s big sunglasses look and they fit my face perfectly.
Over the weekend, Creeds Collective, an influencer community centered around ethical, eco-friendly and charitable fashion and beauty brands invited me to their Summer of Creeds event on Long Island. It was great to get out of the city and spend a day at a fabulous Long Beach beach house connecting with fellow bloggers and experiencing the amazing things sustainable brands are doing. Together we’re making the fashion and beauty industries even more beautiful for the next generation. Here’s what went down!

Obsessed with this summer manicure by PH7 Nail Couture, a sustainable salon in Brooklyn that uses only natural polishes. The violet color is by RGB Cosmetics and the sparkles are Deborah Lippmann.
I fell in love with these custom soy candles by Get Wickd. I need one now! You can send them your own bottles to make into candles and they also recycle bottles from restaurants and turn them into beautiful candles.
If you have a special bottle you drank out of at your wedding, birthday or other celebration Get Wickd can turn it into an amazing candle for your home. This is also a great way to surprise a friend after partying with them. Can you see why I’m obsessed?

Now that summer is in full swing, you’re probably rocking your favorite swimsuit somewhere warm and beachy. In the spirit of making a splash in fabulous swimwear, T.J.Maxx and Marshalls dove in and conducted a survey uncovering the hottest swimwear styles of 2015!
According to this splash of survey, halter, sporty and retro-inspired styles are the most popular. Surprisingly, over 70% of states favor the one piece. Though I live in New York, I think I’m more of a California or Maine girl when it comes to swimwear. What awesome swimsuit style are you rocking this summer?
