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.…

Have you ever had one of those moments when shopping when you picked up a pair of jeans, or a shirt, or a sweater, or a pair of shoes and felt like you hit the fashion jackpot? Well for me that “aha” moment happened back in December with a pair of jeans. Don’t ask why it took me this long to feature them on my blog, but I’ve been wearing them (and dancing in them) constantly due to the fringe detail and how unique, edgy, and cool they are. What to hear more about these…

Chattering teeth, runny nose, rosy cheeks, numb fingers, and wind blown hair, is the norm for me while trying to take photos outside during the winter months.  Sure, most of my photos (well at least I hope) look somewhat decent, but taking photos in the frigid temperatures is anything but glamorous.  In between takes you will find me bundled up in a heavy coat and googling the nearest cafe where I can just warm up for a bit before bearing the cold again.  I could just be smart and wear my winter coat while taking…

I thought my previous style post (if you missed it, here’s the link) would be my last post for 2018, but I was wrong. This reflections and resolutions write up all started when I was creating Instagram stories with my favorite photos and memories of 2018. I soon realized that I had way too much to reflect on in just an Instagram story.  Although, my favorite type of posts to read and create are usually style posts, I genuinely enjoy writing these serious kind of blogs, because it gives me a chance to process my…

If there’s any night to dress to impress, it’s New Year’s Eve, because there’s no better way to ring in a new year than wearing your best party outfit.  My New Year’s Eve plans are quite different this year by just going to a house party instead of some NYC club, like I did last year, but I still might wear this metallic jumpsuit because I love it so much.  Plus, there are worse things in life than being the most overdressed party guest. But, have no fear, if I don’t decide to wear this…

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to trade the autumn decorations for all things Christmas and fully embrace the Christmas season (which I’m sure many of you have already done well before Thanksgiving).  This is my first holiday season living in New York City and the city sure knows how to celebrate.  This time of the year is so magical with the streets filled with Christmas lights, the restaurants all decorated, and on every street corner you can find Christmas trees being sold.  Although, a full sized Christmas tree wouldn’t fit in my tiny…
