It took me until this winter to test out the over-the-knee, thigh-high boots trend. I’ve been so hesitant to embrace in this look, because one, I didn’t think these boots would look good on me and two, I didn’t think I would get a ton of use out of them. Jury is still out for reason one, although I do feel like these boots make my legs look longer, but to my surprise I’ve been wearing them a lot, especially when wearing a dress for a night out on the town. I just feel like…

Skinny jeans are so 2019. Don’t get me wrong, I still have plenty of skinny jeans in all different washes, some distressed, some not so much, and so on. But recently, I been gravitating towards more different fits of jeans. Think boyfriend jeans, mom jeans, and in this case, 70s flared, bell bottoms, boot cut, or however you would like to describe it.  With a new year upon us, I’ve been focused on cleaning and purging my apartment and that includes my closet. Mostly, because I just don’t have any more room in my tiny…

To be honest, this was the first Christmas season that I was really stressed out.  I don’t know why this year, but to put it in perspective, we are less than a week away until Christmas and I’m not even done with my Christmas shopping, close, but not done.  I blame how late Thanksgiving was this year.  I felt like Thanksgiving came and went and then it was already December and now Christmas.  I know I’m not alone in this world who are last minute shoppers, so I decided to create this very last minute…

Panic mode activated because Christmas is in less than 10 days. Like what? Well luckily for all of you, LivForCrafts is back again (make sure to check out my cinnamon stick ornaments craft here). Anyways, these pine cone Christmas trees are so cute and easy to make, because with Christmas right around the corner who has time to spend hours crafting? I love these pine cone trees because if you don’t have room for a actual Christmas tree, you can display these mini replicas on any dining room table or a window sill. My studio…

The Christmas season is in full force. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the holidays, but I often feel overwhelm that they come and go so quickly and I hardly decorated my apartment or took advantage of all the Christmasy things to do in the city. But, I’m thankful that I can check off a few things from my holiday bucket list, like ice skating in Bryant Park, and somewhat decorating my tiny apartment. In my almost two years of living in a studio and prior to that a tiny college apartment, you have…

It’s been a hot minute since I wrote a blog post. I guess you can call me an “occasional blogger.” One who wishes she was like all the motivated and consistent bloggers she follows on Instagram but instead works a full time job and then after spends her little bit of free time going to the gym, going out with friends, or just unplugging from the social media world.  When the weekends do come and I have a spare minute, I haven’t made the effort to take photos, especially since now it’s freezing outside or…

Two weeks ago, I finally visited the ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Although, I live a short walk across the park from the museum, it took me this long to visit the exhibit, which started in May and ends beginning of September.  The star-studded Met Gala back on the first Monday in May commenced the unique theme of the exhibit.  This year’s theme was inspired by Susan Sontag’s essay “Notes on ‘Camp’” published in 1964. After skimming her essay in preparation for the Met Gala and exhibit, I interpreted…

Oh hello summer, we meet again. After a long, freezing winter and a chilly, rainy spring in New York City, I’m thrilled to finally break out my collection of lightweight, colorful summer dresses. There’s nothing better than just throwing on a dress, adding a few simple accessories and walking out the door. Plus, they keep you somewhat cool now that the temperatures are heating up in the city, and if you live in the city you know that feeling of waiting underground for the subway in that cloud of hot, stale air.  Today’s dress is…

Cue my favorite quote from one of my favorite movies, The Devil Wears Prada: “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” I have to agree with Miranda Priestly, it seems like florals are always the ‘it’ pattern for every season. Although, you can count on any store or runway featuring this print, I can’t complain because I love everything flowers. Today’s style post, not only features florals, but it’s also a dress that is perfect for the upcoming warmer days and even weddings!  Wedding season is officially here, because whenever I log onto any of my social media…

The minute the weather gets above 65 degrees it’s officially dress, skirt, or in this case romper season, so say hello to my pale legs.  Most likely, I’m probably blinding people with my pasty legs, but don’t worry because whenever the sun is out and I have some down time, I’ve been working on my pre summer glow by sitting in Central Park. Although, by the looks of these photos, back-up reinforcement like some sort of self tanner might be needed. Anyway, in today’s style post, I busted out my new romper from Cotton On. …

It’s been a while since I last posted but I’m back.  Also, I guess you can say that LivForStyle is going through some sort of a rebrand.  By rebrand, I mean I’ll be slowly updating my website template, logos, profile, Instagram profile photo, etc etc.  I think this thought of a rebrand all started when I noticed how lucky I’m to live in New York City and how often I don’t feature the beauty of the city on my blog.  I want to start making New York City a new character on my blog, where…

This post was inspired by my one year anniversary of making New York City my home. Countless number of people tell me that it takes a lot of courage and guts to live in the city and I never knew what they were talking about until I sat down and reflected on my year’s journey.  I have learned a lot, grown up a lot, experienced a lot, all in the city that never sleeps. I could write a novel on all that I have discovered, but decided to keep the list below somewhat short, but…

Happy Friday! Who’s ready for the weekend? I know I am. Anyways, as you can tell by what feels like all my style posts, animal print never fails to disappoint me.  Whenever I’m wearing cheetah, snake skin, zebra print, just to name a few , I instantly feel more fashionable and chic.  I have had my eye on a blazer like the one I’m wearing in today’s post for ages, to be specific since I saw a lady wearing a similar blazer on the subway one day and I knew I needed to have one.…
