Some say that boots are meant for cold winter days. However in my wardrobe, I love transforming boots into a summer essential! Florals or a tribal pattern, like on these Pink & Pepper boots can be the perfect touch to a simple summer look!

Outfit // Floral Shorts
28 June 2012
One of my favorite things to wear in the summer is floral shorts! I love how a vibrant print can just brighten up an entire outfit that otherwise would have been very simple. I paired the shorts with one of my staple denim tops and favorite summer accessories- a vintage-inspired bag, straw hat, loafers, and killer bracelets. I'm also sporting one of my new bracelets that is very dear to me, from a brand called Trollbeads. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of working with the brand at a DIY-event at the famous M&J Trimmings here in New York. I was able to make this silver bracelet with the ball of yarn charm, which I totally love! Trollbeads has literally hundreds of different charms to choose from, so I was able to choose one that was special to me.
Nail Art // Cupcakes by Miss Pop
27 June 2012
The other day I had the privilege of getting my nails done by the ever-so-lovely Miss Pop! She is an amazing NYC-based nail artist, and thanks to Lifebooker, I got to see her work her magic on my nails. We brainstormed to figure out the perfect design to fit

Outfit // Easy Breezy
26 June 2012
Without a doubt, this is my new summer hair style. Just throw my hair up in a messy bun and at a head wrap for a touch of cuteness. Easy breezy does it when it comes to summer hair for me.
Hope you are having a lovely Tuesday!

Summer In The City // Adventures with Free People
25 June 2012
Boy do I love summer in the city, especially when they are Saturdays. There is nothing like taking in the hustle and bustle of the streets, and basking in the wonderful energy that is NYC. One of the things I absolutely love, are the street vendors that grace practically every corner. Whether you are looking for a fruit smoothie, flowers, or a cheesy, yet necessary souvenir, the street has everything you need. Me and one of my co-workers Chastine ventured around the city decked out in all Free People summer goodies. We love our brand, and love representing it!

Outfit // Skaters In The Sunset
23 June 2012
One of my favorite things about NYC, is simply the city streets and what you canrandomly stumble upon while getting from point A to point B. On this particular summer's evening, I stumbled upon these bad ass skater boys and stopped to watch the show. I happened to be on the west side of New York by the water, where the sunset is absolutely breath-taking. Nothing beats nature's beauty.
Anyways, I hope you all are having a lovely weekend!
