I love Zara, and I love Taylor Tomasi Hill’s impeccable style — so the fact that they’ve teamed up for Zara’s latest spring campaign is pretty damn great. The campaign, called Zara Pictures, features real style influencers TTH, former Barney’s fashion director Amanda Brooks, The Paris Review's Hailey Gates and Elle China's Sherry Shen instead of models. They each styled their looks themselves, in tune to their own personal style. The best part is that this time, when I pin this photo of TTH, (my favorite from the whole campaign) I can actually afford what she's wearing! Shop the looks and check out the whole campaign on Zara.
Late Night Treat: I went to see The Grand Budapest Hotel last night and it was as lovely and wonderful as I thought it’d be! I thought I’d share this pretty pattern inspired by the movie, which is part of a series of alternative posters for the movie by several artists — this one’s by Maxime Pecourt, who you can find over on society6.
Shoutout to my bff Rachel Baker and her impeccable music taste for introducing me to MØ, and thank you to MØ for putting out an amazing cover of the Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There” — listening to it and more MØ all day has held me over on this hump day. Enjoy this and remember there’s now only 2 days until Friday when you’ll be able to dance to this jam all night long !!
Travel Diaries: Spent a couple days away in warm, pretty & pastel-y San Francisco recently — it was wonderful to get away from the cold & gray back home. While I’ll always love NYC, it’s nice to get away and just chill for a bit. (Because California really is as chill as it seems.) Now all I want is for it to warm up and to run around in cool sneakers all spring long.
Best Dressed: Last night’s Oscar red carpet was really good, which made it really hard to pick a favorite. Lupita Nyong’o looked legitimately like a Disney Princess in custom Prada - which is amazing - and Emma Watson looked really cute and modern in sparkly Vera Wang. But if I had to pick a favorite, it’s gotta be Cate Blanchett in this amazing sparkly Armani Prive gown!! It’s too good.
Travel Essentials: I’m escaping this polar vortex and running off to San Francisco with my boyfriend for a couple days. I’m trying to learn how to pack lightly, but my carry-on suitcase is still stuffed to the brim — at least my purse is on the lighter side! Here’s some of the essentials I packed in my bag:
- iPad (equipped with a DODOcase)
- Moleskine Le Petit Prince planner
- Essential jewelry from Brooklyn Charm
- Rebecca Minkoff wallet
- Peter Pilotto for Target sunnies
- Warby Parker glasses
- A cute eye mask
- Essie nail polish in Chinchilly
- JINsoon Matte Maker polish
- NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Cruella
- Rosebud Perfume Co. Salve
- Wildfox pouch for beauty essentials
- Cuyana leather tote bag to hold it all!
NYFW Review: New York Fashion Week ended on Thursday, and while the fashion set is off to London I took the weekend to relax and recover — but I wanted to share some of my favorite snaps from my fashion week. I had a blast getting to go to quite a few shows for W, and was really into a lot of stuff I saw on the runways. Definitely a lot of outfit inspiration that I can use now! Here’s a look at my week, but you can find more of my NYFW coverage on my instagram feed.
NYFW Look of the Day: Speaking of perfect outfits to wear in this never-ending cold, I’m really into all the fuzzy coat looks Calvin Klein sent down the runway for fall. I especially loved this grungy look — the shoes + hair really make the outfit, and that coat is just perfect. Looking kinda like the Abominable Snowman is cool, right?
NYFW Look of the Day: I’ve been seeing a lot of head-to-toe grey looks on the runway this season, and the minute I saw the monochromatic looks in Steven Alan's amazing fall collection I knew this was the perfect one for me. With all the gross weather in the city right now, I just want to wear this layered look and be equal parts comfy and chic.
