Travelling Upstate New York

The most I have traveled in the northeast, outside of New York City, has been to New Jersey. Those trips weren't much of anything due to the fact I went out there for photoshoots and came right back into the city. I recently made a trip to upstate New York for the first time and it reminded me a lot like my homestate, Tennessee. Everything was calming and relaxing. 

My friend, Ty and I made our way to Baldwin Winery in Pine Bush, New York. It was very much like a farm style. There was a barn, animals, huge backyard, hay, etc. They have this apple wine that literally just took us away. The best dessert wine I've ever had!

After we hung out at Baldwin for a bit and ate huge personal sized pizzas, we made our way 10 minutes away to Angry Orchard. THE Angry Orchard where they pick their apples and brew their ciders! Now, I don't drink much alcohol, but if I had a choice of drink. It would most likely be this. 

Here's a vlog about my first trip upstate!
It was a perfect apple getway from the big apple itself.

How To Style: Hiking Boots

It's been a long time coming, but I'm finally back with another blog post. The beginning of summer 2018, I was in dire need of new shoes. I scouted the interweb to find the perfect pair and in the end didn't find a thing. Eventually, I had the bright idea to scope out hiking boots! I'm highly aware that they're not the typical boot people would call "cute". But I think that if styled a certain way, they most definitely are.

With that being said, I am officially an owner of vintage Skechers platform hiking boots and I am utterly obsessed. 

Recently, I just found out that my obsession for outdoor wear is already coined with its own term: gorpcore. I absolutely love it for the fact that it's major comfortability and can be stylish. So I made a video so that it catches on for more of an outreach than just celebs.

HOW TO STYLE: YELLOW

Yellow fever?...Close to it, right? This is my most recent shoot with Sean Dougherty and probably my favorite by far. I'm already a sucker for monochrome looks, so an all yellow outfit with a yellow backdrop had me gone.

I made a quick video on how I incorporate yellow into my personal style. We all know it's a harder color to style due to the fact it can turn a whole look super loud, super quickly. Here are a few tips that will hopefully persuade you wear more yellow!

Stripes

I find myself being more into nautical colors the past few months. My favorite color to wear is already navy, so adding a bit of red is easily done. I paired fat and skinny stripes together. The thicker stripes are in my top, while the thinner stripes are in my pants.

Panorama NYC 2018

The first ever music festival I have been to was Bonnaroo a few years ago in Manchester, TN.
This summer, I had the ultimate pleasure of attending Panorama in NYC on Randall's Island. A different experience, for sure, but none the less, absolutely amazing!

As expected, it was quite hot. So, for my look I went with a red strapless top and took it in a monochrome approach by pairing it with a red skort and the red Mickey Mouse fanny pack.

I vlogged about this hectic and adventurous day on my Youtube Channel. Please subscribe, if you haven't already! ^_^



As for my makeup, I tried to go the 'festival route' with the stars and jewels. I think the outcome came out pretty nice!

An enormous thank you goes to HP for taking me to Panorama!

New York Fashion Week: Men's Spring/Summer 2018

Spring/Summer NYFW season is probably far worse than the Fall/Winter. I was drowning in my own sweat walking to and from Skylight Clarkson and Cadillac House. 

I have made part 1 of SS18 into a vlog on my Youtube Channel, with part 2 coming soon. Subscribe to stay updated! 

There were a lot of returning designers this season with some newcomers. I am going to show you a few favorites from the runways of New York Fashion Week: Men's.
Note: I noticed more purple and camo print on the catwalk!

New York Fashion Week: Men's Spring/Summer 2018 - Outfits

New and returning designers, this New York Fashion Week: Men's was another fun season. The majority of the shows were held at Skylight Clarkson and Cadillac House with the starting of New York Men's Day being held at Dune Studios. The street style from the guests were fantastic! Kudos to anyone who wore more than one layer because the temperature was ridiculously hot. 

I posted a vlog on my Youtube Channel for the first two days. Please subscribe and check the rest of my videos!


The more I pay attention to menswear overseas, i.e. LCM etc., the more I get inspired to tweak my own personal style. During NYFWM, I got interviewed and a question that stuck out was to describe my style. I wasn't sure on what to say because I feel like it is forever changing. My response was, 'tomboy chic'. Is that even a thing? I'm not too sure. Here are my looks for the fashion week of New York giving you tomboy chic.

New York Men's Day is always the casual look because everything is a presentation. I kept it simple with an all white look accessorized with primary colors.

White textured shorts: c/o Oasap
Gold booties: Office London
Yellow neckerchief: Thrift Store
Red Purse: Random store in Vegas

The cords/strings were actually a DIY. I got inspired by the menswear S/S18 collection from 22/04 Hommes.

Army green trousers: My grandmother's
Brown/Orange suede/cork boots: Zara
Camo fanny pack: Zara
I'm not usually the one to dress 'hypebeast', but honestly I love that category of style. I may or may not start dressing more in streetwear brands.
