Festival Style

7.26.2016

 This summer I had the chance to attend two incredible music festivals - Governor's Ball and Panorama NYC. Both festivals took place close to home at Randall's Island Park just a quick ride over the bridge. Here's a look at my outfits for 3 days of Gov Ball & 3 days at Panorama!
For Governor's Ball day one I went sexy! I loved rocking a fitted dress & western booties {dress, bag & boots}
Day Two of Gov Ball I wore one of my favorite outfits - a two-piece gingham set from BooHoo {top & skirt}
Unfortunately the third day of Governor's Ball was cancelled but I donned by day three outfit and jumped in puddles instead! {Body, shorts & belt}
Day One of Panorama I opted for a romper to beat the heat {Romper & kerchief}

Day two of Panorama was even hotter so I opted for this strappy onesie & western style boots! {Romper, belt & boots


Day three I spent frolicking with my bestie Noelle of Noelle's Favorite Things. I wore a white off-the-shoulder dress, western belt & boots! {Dress, belt, kerchief & boots}

Mini Bootcamp with Old Navy Active

7.22.2016
















About 6 months ago I decided to make a change for myself and my health. I started a new workout routine and cut back on unhealthy foods and I'm happier and more in shape than I've ever been! Growing up our family always shopped at Old Navy and I especially love their activewear so I was so excited when they asked me to create a  mini-bootcamp challenge! I absolutely love being outside, especially in the summer and exercising outdoors is fun and motivating! As a warm up I rode a CitiBike from Greenpoint to Brooklyn Bridge Park, just under 6 miles. I love riding and it its a great low-impact workout. Once I got to the beautiful park (talk about fitness with a view) I started my solo mini-boot camp. All you need is a stopwatch - I just use my iPhone! 

Jog for 1 minute 
20 push ups
20 mountain climbers 
20 jumping jacks 
20 walking lunges 
20 second plank
Jog for 1 minute

Repeat 3 times

Try and stay really quick on your feet to get the full benefits of this high intensity interval training (also know as HIIT) workout. Be sure to also drink tons of water to stay hydrated! As for the workout gear, I really appreciate lightweight pieces that wick swear and keep you dry, especially on a sweltering day in the City. I choose the Old Navy Go-Dry Run tank with breathable mesh on the back and the Compression Mesh Panel Crops which are super high waisted! As for the sports bra - which is always my favorite part of any workout look I nabbed this Strappy Cami bra in an adorable Palm Print. The look is super comfortable and even more importantly super breathable, essential for a sweaty outdoor workout. Thanks again to Old Navy for sponsoring this post. 

#GelEnvyChallenge with Revlon

7.21.2016


This post is sponsored by Revlon through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Revlon, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

I'm so excited to be partnering with Revlon to show off their new ColorStay Gel Envy™ Longwear Nail Enamel and New ColorStay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat™ - their strongest top coat yet! The polish comes in a variety of shades but I decided to go with 'Berry Treasure' a rich fuchsia color. We're going to put the strength of this polish to the test! I'm going to show you how to apply for maximum strength and then I'm going to cut, de-stem and arrange some prickly roses and see how the polish holds up! 

How to Apply

Step 1: Choose your favorite shade and apply two coats. The ColorStay Gel Envy™ Longwear Nail Enamel is a Base + Color all in one! Wait 5 minutes and move to next step!
Step 2: Next we're applying the ColorStay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat™ to lock in the chip-resistant wear! This is Revlon's toughest top coat with Diamond-Flex Technology™ - a technological advancement in the nail industry that you'll only find in Revlon's ColorStay Gel EnvyDiamond Top Coat™. It not only protects the nails from chipping and shattering, it also adds a gorgeous shine to the nails! 
The finished look! I love the color and the shine. Now let's put the polish to the test with some thorny roses! 
The nails still look perfect after cutting, de-stemming and arranging the flowers in a vase! This polish even has a satisfaction guarantee - see more details here.  I challenge you guys to take the Gel Envy Challenge!
Optional Step: Thank boyfriend for the beautiful flowers! 

Summer Staycation at Rockaway Beach

7.04.2016

I'm so excited to be collaborating again with undoubtedly my favorite brand for vintage-inspired looks, ModCloth! This summer their dress selection is incredible - I picked up quite a few including this gorgeous flamingo print shirt dress with a bright red belt. To shoot the playful look I hopped on the subway to Rockaway beach with Noelle. We stumbled upon this charming restaurant/motel called "Playland." After scarfing down a delicious meal of fish tacos, guacamole and a friend chicken sandwich with tater tots we each shot our favorite ModCloth looks. Noelle wore a large scale gingham dress and I donned this perfectly retro frock. We got tons of compliments on our throwback outfits! I paired my dress with a bright orange-red lip and yellow "hello sunshine" flats. Be sure to check out their selection of summer looks perfect for everything from backyard barbecues to wear-to-wedding styles! 

Special thanks to ModCloth for sponsoring this post and continuing to create retro inspired looks that always hit the mark!
