Lavendar Hues in the City

Hey everyone,

Today, I’m sharing a super casual and basic look that I wore while spending the day in the Upper East Side. It was a eventful day, so I’ll just take you guys along with me.

Outfit Details:

Rayban Aviators

Lavendar Perforated Cami: Banana Republic Factory (similar here and here)

Ripped Jeans: Gap Factory (similar here)

Gold Jack Rogers Thong Sandals

Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac.

For lunch, we stopped by this quaint Thai place, called Thai Peppercorn.

Since I’ve never had Thai before, I ordered the typical Pad Thai, which is just sautéed rice noodle with bean sprout, ground peanut, small brown tofu, scallion and egg. I’d give it a 7/10 just because I was thrown off by some of the flavors.

Address: 1750 1st Avenue

Then, we took a quick walk at Carl Schurz Park, but it was carzy hot that day – around 90 degrees.

To end the day, we went to Emack and Bolio’s to beat the heat. The place was just too cute! It was decorated with colorful wallpaper, old rock ‘n’ roll poster, and gave off a cool “hippie” vibe. On top of that, the ice-cream was off the charts – super creamy and delicious (or maybe I was just in need of something cold to avoid heat stroke). From their assortment of flavors, I ordered peanut butter oreo, serious chocolate addiction, and the original oreo.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post and let me know if you want to see an NYC Guide Blog post!

Floral Fun

I’ve been loving summer so far. Not only has the weather been amazing, but I’m actually excited when choosing my outfit for the day. In the wintertime, I just throw on whatever I need to stay warm – usually a chunky sweater, jeans, scarf, leather boots. But now, I have so many more options!

To me, floral is the epitome of spring and summer fashion. You can honestly never go wrong. Today, I wore this lovely mint floral romper from Nordstrom. And you’ll never believe how much I paid for it: $12!

The Girl in the Yellow Dress

I’m so excited that summer has arrived! Now, I can store my grays and blacks away, and start wearing bright happy colors.

Recently, I purchased this amazing dress from J.Crew Factory at only $26! I wore it to my high school’s National Honor Society. Among the sea of black and white dresses, you could spot me from a mile away. Don’t be afraid to stand out! Summer is the perfect time to experiment with colors, textures, trends – whatever floats your boat.

Preppy & City Chic Style

Hey guys!

Today, I’ll be showing you a cute outfit that really shows my style. I would describe my style as being preppy with a “chic city twist”. Normally, preppy brings to mind Lilly Pulitzer, Kate Spade, Kendra Scott, and Southern brands (like Vineyard Vines, Marley Lilly, Simply Southern Tees, Southern Proper, Jadelynn Brooke).

While I do love these colorful brands, living in NYC has definitely toned-down my color choices. I love a good olive pant or white chiffon blouse. I guess you could say that my “city chic” comes from shopping at shops like Zara, J.Crew, Banana Republic, Anthropologie, Intermix, Gap, etc. Most of these stores are located right next to each other in SoHo or Fifth Ave anyways.

My Outfit:

Zara A-Line Dress

Gap Light Pink jacket (Old)

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote in Fairview Blue

Silver Glitter Oxfords (similar here and here)

RayBan Polarized Blue Mirrored Aviators 58mm

NuMe Hair Wand 25 mm

Feeling Like Blair Waldorf

On my way to go to Manhattan today, I decided to spice up my look and try Blair Waldorf’s outrageous and elaborate preppy style. However, instead of spend $450 on one Valentino skirt, I opted for the J.Crew sale section.

My Inspiration Photos: See how Leighton Meester’s stylist coordinated the top and skirt?

What I’m Loving – January Edition

1. Anything Turtle-neck!

When I was little, my mother used to dress me in tight turtlenecks all the time – and I absolutely DESPISED it. However, now that I’ve grown accustomed to infinity scarfs and necklaces, I love how turtlenecks keep you warm and looking put-together at the same time. There isn’t a need to wear a scarf anymore. Just throw on a turtleneck sweater and you’re good to go!

2. Ripped Denim Jeans

Ripped jeans have been all the rage since summertime, and it’s no wonder why. Being extremely versatile, if you’re style is edgy or classic, they are easy to style. If you’re not sure what your style is, don’t fret; pair you’re jeans with a basic white t-shirt and some cute accessories, and you’ll be turning heads instantly.

3. Eyebrows on Fleek

I know the whole bold eyebrow look has been popular for a long time, but I never found the best eyebrow pencil/powder for me. I’ve tried the LORAC pencil and Anastasia brow palette, but when I discovered the Elizabeth Arden Natural Eye Brow Pencil, I instantly fell in love. It’s great for my brows because I have thin, fine hairs. You also don’t have to sharpen it because it comes in a twistable pencil (with an added grooming brush on the opposite end).

4. Bold Berry Lips

As a girl with warm skin tones, nude lips look absolutely terrible on me. If you’re in a similar boat, opt for red or berry hues. They make brown or hazel eyes pop! Especially in winters where you’re bundled up in neutral clothes, bold lips can really make an outfit stand out.

5. Basic Tees and Long-sleeves

I love buying soft, simple tees from Urban Outfitters, Zara, and even Forever 21. Not only are they affordable, but investing in a good-quality shirt is essential for every woman’s closet. You can dress them down with a pair of black leggings and Vans, or dress them up with black skinny jeans, ankle boots, and a leather jacket. They are so versatile and easy to style!

 

So that concludes today’s blog post. I hope you got an idea of my January favorites.

Cute and Comfy Outfit for Running Errands

When I envision a comfy outfit, sneakers always come to mind. I especially love these Nike Free 5.0 Shoes because they add that element of a “chic working Manhattan mom”. I just paired some GAP leggings with this chunky cable-knit sweater, and threw a J.Crew Herringbone vest over the top. To be hassle-free, I also used my Michael Kors Jet Set Logo Cross-body purse. And I was off to do some weekend errands!

2015 Reflections

Now that it is officially 2016, I would like to dedicate this post to all of the wonderful opportunities, events, and experiences that occurred last year. Despite the positive outcomes as well as personal hardships, 2015 literally flew by and I’m excited for the new year!

In no particular order, besides the first:

  1. Most importantly, I started THIS lifestyle/fashion blog on exactly March 2, 2015! Creating my own platform has allowed me to create relationships with other AMAZING fashion PR bloggers (like you reading this), inspire readers with outfit and lifestyle posts, and learn about new, trendy brands of the fashion industry.
  2. In one of my blog posts, I mentioned how I wanted to explore and spend more time in Manhattan, since I live very close (in Brooklyn). Luckily, I did just that in the summer. I toured Columbia University, Barnard College, CUNY and NYU, some of my potential colleges. I also saw multiple shows: Sam Eaton’s The Quantum Eye, Matilda, The Lion King, and the Blue Man Group. Now, I am very familiar with the city from Battery Park to SoHo to Midtown to the Upper East Side.
  3. I’ve completed over 100 hours of community service. Serving my duty as a rightful citizen is very near and dear to my heart. I’m Vice President of my school’s Key Club, and my hours have piled up from volunteering with soup kitchens, health walks, and other non-profit organizations. I love giving back to the community and hope to later inspire others to do so as well.
  4. I was reached out by TRIANGL swimwear to receive one of their amazing neoprene bikinis to try.
  5. I became a Mirina Girls Brand Ambassador! They have an amazing jewelry line that is to die for.
  6. On December 15, 2015, I turned the sweet 16! Although I can’t drive in NYC until 17, it was fun to celebrate my birthday in the city with my friends.
  7. In September, I became a virtual high school intern with Her Campus Media! There, I write journalistic pieces that range in subject from editing, marketing, publicity, etc and communicate and connect with other bloggers.

Check out their website at: http://www.hercampus.com

8. As you know, I am an avid traveler (visited over 20 countries), so I was elated to travel to China for the Lunar New Year during spring break and northern Europe with my family this past summer. In China, I got to visit so many distant relatives and absorb myself in Chinese culture. In a short span of two weeks, we traveled to Great Britain, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland, and Sweden by plane, cruise ship, and many trains. I loved changing so many time zones and experiencing different cultures, food, architecture, and fashion. If you want to see photos, check out my Instagram @style.stargirl

9. Going along with that, I had my FIRST beer in Berlin (at age 15). It wasn’t that great though :/

  1. In March, I met Tavi Gevinson, who inspired me to start this blog. She started a successful fashion blog, and then moved onto feminist movements in her online magazine, Rookie Magazine. At age 19, she was featured in Teen Vogue for her growing teen fan base and influence.

IMG_5382.JPG

11. Lastly, I’ve changed my style quite a bit. If you scroll down my Instagram, you could see that I used to wear a lot brighter preppy clothing that resembled a non-designer version of Blair Waldorf. After learning what colors best suit my skin tone and hair color, I toned down my color palette. Now, I would describe my style as “city chic”, preppy, and classic. I frequently wear grays, whites, cream, and jewel-toned colors (magenta, pink, green, navy), and shop at Zara, Urban Outfitters, J.Crew, Gap, Sheinside, and Forever 21.

I want to give a BIG thank you to everyone who has been riding along on my blogging journey. Thank you for reading, liking, and engaging in my blog posts. I wish you all a year full of love, health, and happiness!

16th Birthday Brunch in NYC

Hey lovelies!

December 15th was my 16th birthday, which was unfortunately a Tuesday. Since it was a school day, I decided to have a birthday brunch at The View restaurant in Manhattan on the weekend. Located in the New York Marriott Marquis, the rooftop restaurant revolved. Me and my friends got to see a 360 degree view of Times Square, while enjoying a brunch buffet.

I had a great time, and I wanted to share what I wore that afternoon:
