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…

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…

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…

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…

Can someone please explain to me how it’s already Thanksgiving? I swear it was July yesterday.  I can’t believe another holiday season has begun.  Although, I am not the biggest fan of Thanksgiving food, I love what the holiday symbolizes, the start of the countdown to Christmas and most importantly giving thanks for all the wonderful people and things in your life.  This year, like in every year past I will be heading back home from the city to Connecticut and celebrate at my aunt’s house surrounded by my family and lots of wine to…

Here on my blog, I have talked about being guilty of having multiples of similar clothing items in my closet.  For me those pieces consist of all things camo print, countless number of denim jackets, and more recently kimonos.  I’m currently looking at my wardrobe and nothing is more satisfying than seeing all my beautiful kimonos lined up perfectly next to each other.  Each one of my kimonos are from different stores, with varying colors, textures, and patterns, but all are used to complete any outfit.  Keep on scrolling to see how I style one…

If you slide open my closet door, one would instantly be able to tell my obsession with jumpsuits has spiraled out of control (if it wasn’t clear on my Instagram too).  Jumpsuits are my summer go-to and I have a feeling that because of the long pants, they will be transitioned into the autumn months with a light sweater or jacket.  Not so surprisingly, today’s post is all about my current favorite jumpsuit that recently was added to my collection, so keep on scrolling to see how I style yet another jumpsuit. If there is…

Today, on LivForStyle we have a very special guest…my beautiful, inspiring mom.  Mother’s Day is right around the corner (Sunday May 13th to be exact), so today’s style post is dedicated to my wonderful mom and all those great moms out there.  Most of the time, my mom is behind the scenes and plays a major role on the LivForStyle page as my photographer.  But, today instead of asking her to only take my photos, I decided to point the camera in her direction and let her have her blogger moment, I mean after all, she has learned from…
