Atlantic City

hi everyone! I hope yall had a great weekend. I went to Atlantic City with some of my friends and just got back to New York a few hours ago. I had a great time! it was a girls weekend and we had a blast. We walked on the board walk, drank daiquiris, laid on the beach, went to a pool party, gambled and danced. I must say the day pool party we went to was BANANAS and i've never experienced anything like it in my life. it was really fun...and really wet!

atlantic city was a hell of a good time. we stayed at the Tropicana hotel and it was enormous. even though I've lived in New York for 6 years it was my very first time going to Atlantic City but i'm sure it wont be my last...not really for the gambling but for the outlet shopping! You can check out more pics on my instagram including my first attempt at planking.

white out

 photo IMG_4442683x1024_zps7db94d9c.jpg
even though I don't get the chance to wear it often this white jumpsuit from Zara is one of the favorite pieces in my wardrobe. (speaking of which Zara is having a bomb sale!) Last week when the heat wave nearly killed us all it was a saving grace of an outfit for an event I attended. I don't wear it often because I'm the type of girl who can't keep something white...white! It's nearly impossible for me not to spill something when I wear white lol.

i've been super super busy lately so excuse my lack of posts. I've been working like crazy to save up for Paris in September. I can honestly say i've never worked so hard for anything...well maybe grad school but you get what i'm saying. I'm trying to get a photographer while im there so I can at least be in a few photos. if you all have any recommendations please email me! Also if you are based in Paris let me know if you wanna hang out. I'm always down to meet new people. Right now im packing because tomorrow evening im going to Atlantic City with some of my friends. I've never been so it should be fun! I'll try to get a post or two to you when I'm there with some beach attire.  Make sure to keep up with my instagram for the goods.

sharks, sequins and plaid

 photo 216683x455_zps1aabc038.jpg
when I got this plaid top and shark tee from Forever 21 a few weeks ago I knew exactly what I wanted to pair them with...this gryphon sequin skirt! I love the mixture of textures and colors in this outfit. This plaid shirt with leather pockets is one of my best buys from Forever 21. They are definitely stepping their game up. In the past few months I've gotten these two pieces, these shorts and this Tupac top. I wore this outfit to the Lucky Brand jeans event last week.

im so incredibly happy the heat wave in New York City is over. I've been dying during those 90 plus days. Let me tell you its really hard to look cute when is 97 degrees and the humidity sends your hair into an afro with uncontrollable frizz and your make up is sliding down your face. Which is why unless I really have somewhere to go...I don't wear makeup. I always feel bad when a reader catches me on a "bum day" (when I look a hot mess). I always feel like I've disappointed them by not living up to their expectations. Actually its kinda funny sometimes. just a normal girl with an unhealthy habit for shoes and a photographer.
