You'll find me off St. Marks toying with the trinkets or tucked in the back of The Bowery Hotel in my favorite ripped pair of jeans and boots. Lately, I've been all about the Sorel Out n' About lace-up boot. They're made for a weekend adventuring, playing tourist in my own home. Hopping on citibike to citibike, racing down Freedman's Alley with the boys.

Take a spin around my neighborhood, and how it's inspired my looks now on NYMAG'S The Cut.

These last two months for me have been filled with traveling! After Stockholm Fashion Week, Dylana and I hopped on a quick flight to BERLIN, Germany and we quickly fell in love with this incredible, vibrant city. I've never seen so much artwork and graffiti splashed on the city's grey walls. Little messages from the city's people always here and there wherever you go. I like to say Berlin is like Williamsburg on crack. There's more food and beer drinking than anywhere else I've ever been. Yes, you can double fist and walk down the street without anyone giving you a second glance. Cheers! Who said you can't have beer with your morning egg and bagel?! Morning and night, Dylana and I mapped our days. We have an incredible CITY GUIDE with Forever 21 coming your way super soon. So you too, can explore this crazy city, and drink unlimited glasses of wine (for 2 euros...I'll tell you where soon enough!)  My suitcase surprisingly underweight by about 4 pounds, and I managed to have enough looks for our 10 day European extravaganza. I went with endless layers, and of course many LEATHER JACKETS. Rock tees, crochet vests, and killer cardigans. We topped it up with destroyed denim jeans, and perfect black boots. This city really doesn't sleep, and that's what I love most. The city has beauty, and it has grit. That's what adds to it's charm. We went into hidden techno bars that honestly didn't start until 3am...where you could party and read a book in the library, or sit in a bed in a nearby room. Berlin is about enjoying life to the max, one cup of coffee at a time.  And if you're up for those 24 hour sleepless days, go to Berlin.

NYFW went by in a blink of an eye. In the midst of the crowds in crazy ensembles, I stuck true to my style. Keeping things simple. Why dress any different during NYFW? I did of course, end up playing with textures and fun accessories here with Sam Edelman. I fell for this rockin' ponyhair skirt, floral crop top, and leather jacket. Complete with a super unexpected and funky band hat! Aye aye captain! It's a bit British rock n' roll, but with my own twist. Burgundys, blues, and blacks are just a match made in heaven. Fall is quickly approaching, and I'm spending every last second baring some leg!

We're right smack dab in the middle of NYFW and already my feet are saying NO NO NO to platforms and stilettos. You know I'm a total TEVA girl. It could be at the beach or here in the city. The Teva women's ORIGINALS so light that I can stick them in my tote, and for running from show to show, I'll just slip these babies on before jumping on the subway. But honestly, these candy colored TEVAS are my latest loves, and add to my classic black pair! I love them best with a perfect black midi, a white tee, and statement trench. Letting the pink and orange combo POP. Classic and soooo wearable. My feet are totally thanking me right now as I dash off to Lincoln Center.

This season, I'll be taking you on an adventure this New York Fashion Week with CIROC. I'm so excited to take you through this season's #TropicalLuxury trends. We're talking PINEAPPLE, gorgeous pops of colors, prints that bring us to Bali anytime of year, and of course...exotic jewelry. Ciroc Pineapple helps me celebrate life responsiblity, and what I love MOST about the new Ciroc Pineapple is how smooth it is. This subltle and sweet flavour allows me to relive all of my summer moments again and again anyday of the year. 

With NYFW showcasing all S/S '15 shows, I was blown away with the BOLD hues and happy-go-lucky struts down the catwalk. From MBNYFW to MADE fashion week. I'm giving you the inside scoop.

Take a peek inside my world this week and follow the CIROC Instagram @ciroc as I takeover!

EXPLORE // Pandora moments

I love, love to play the EXPLORER, and I'm always on the go...taking on different roles every which way I go. Whether it be traveling to somewhere EXOTIC like Malaysia and eating off a banana leaf, or just outside the city, in Montauk, surfing with the locals...I always bring my customized Explore Pandora bracelet with me. The orange beads, and quirky charms are the perfect pop of color. With the sparkling EXPLORE letters in sterling silver jingling as I walk, it's a daily reminder to live in the moment. Seeking out new places and having fun while doing it. Exploring inspires me the most. Traveling, taking on a challenge, discovering a new city...or even exploring my very own backyard and neighborhood. Here, I took my bracelet and styled it with the ultimate party dress for the night. Rather than driving, I hopped on a bike...letting the wind blow through my hair as I made it across town. I live for being spontaneous...and taking the road less traveled.
