New Work Alert / Subaru

models: Austin Ku, Anna Swanson, TJ Lillis, and Rachel

We shot this ad back in the end of May on probably the foggiest day I’ve ever seen on the beach on Long Island, not far from where I grew up. Luckily the photographer, Shannon Greer, worked his magic and made it look like the perfect beach day for this family.

It was such a great crew to work with and our mascot of the shoot was that dragon float that you see in the trunk of the car. We all made sure to take photos with it at the end of that day, which you can find on my #Instastyle from that week.

On a side note, I’m thisclose to trading in for a Subaru after this spacious beauty came rolling in from its own trailer (seriously).

Band Camp


I went with my photographer friend, Jess, to The Brightest Color concert at the Bowery Electric the other night and was surrounded by tattooed hipsters, along with some of the most stylish city folk in this East Village spot.

I felt right in place with my vegan leather shorts from Piperlime. They’re the perfect day to night short that are both lighter weight (necessary in this heat wave) and good for your conscious.



Speaking of which, did you check out the beautiful beaded bracelet brightening up my arm candy? It’s hand crocheted by women in Nepal to keep them from human trafficking and give them a fair wage for a better life. They’re not only beautifully made by artisans—each one takes an hour to make—but they are for a good cause. Get one or an arm-worth in a variety of colors here.

If You Can’t Run, At Least Look Like You Can.

Workout clothes are probably less of a focus in my wardrobe. I have a drawer that all of my athletic wear, which isn’t much, literally gets thrown into (no thanks to my cat, who for some reason loves to tear everything out of the drawer weekly).

I will say aside from my beloved Lululemon pants, these are my favorite workout wardrobe staples—even if this yogi is easing into running with the “From Couch To 5K” app:

Anything Stella McCartney for Adidas.
Her designs take function  (wicks away sweat) and style (hello, mesh panels!) and marries them nicely for every bit of the collection. Who said workout wear has to be boring in black?

Workout gear from T.J.Maxx.
The running pants you see here are my favorites because they’re breathable and they have an inside pocket for my keys and they’re probably a fraction of the price of the average running pant. I like to wash my workout clothes after every wear, so I can’t spend a lot on things that won’t last too long.

Brooks running sneakers.I got fitted for sneakers from the running shop, JackRabbit, and they recommended these for my feet. They’re also reasonably priced and while they have no frills, they feel great on my feet. Fancy sneakers are for show—make sure you have something that works well for your feet.

Twistband Headbands.I’ve been obsessed with these since getting bangs and the dilemma of having hair in my face while working out. The best part is that my bangs look totally normal post-run.

Coloud Headphones. These aren’t made for running, but they block out everything around me so I get in a zone. I also never get them tangled thanks to their flat design and they come in a bunch of colors—so of course I can coordinate with my workout wear.

E.Kammeyer Summer Love Sale + GIVEAWAY!


As you probably have seen, I’m a huge fan of the E.Kammeyer leather wrap bracelet with tassels for summer. It’s the easiest accessory to make it look like you’ve really thought out your “arm candy” but you just actually threw on a couple of these pretty effortlessly.

The hardest part is choosing which one you will want to wear. I’m all about the hologram and metallic snakeskin leather wraps, as seen here, but the rose gold have been her biggest sellers.

Now, until Monday, you can make your own summer arm candy with this 20% off deal below:




Also through Monday, you can win a FREE E.Kammeyer tassel bracelet to add to your collection ($80 value)!

Floral Jumpsuit Apparatus


I was home on Long Island for a day over the holiday and was pleasantly surprised to find that one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie, opened up in the local mall.

My friend, Meghan, reluctantly came with me there (or I should say, I dragged her in there) so I could use my gift card from my birthday and like a true friend, picked out every single pair of wide legged pants for me. It’s true; I’m a sucker for that style. We found this gorgeous wide-legged jumpsuit with my name all over it—and especially because it was on the sale rack for half off!
