My Thoughts On The ‘Camp: Notes On Fashion’ Exhibit

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 her work and the word… View Post

Spring Brights

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.  I don’t believe there is… View Post

Back With Flare

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 I will be taking photos… View Post

Razzle Dazzle

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 number on Monday night, I… View Post

Be Thankful

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 get through all the family… View Post

Kimono Krazy

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 of my most unique and… View Post

Sweet Summertime

In years past, especially during my college years, summer was always spent counting down the days until I returned to my college campus and be reunited with all my friends.  Now, I am wishing for the summer to slow down, so I can savor the warmer weather and longer days of daylight a little bit more.  This summer was my first summer in the “working world” and I soon discovered how quickly the summer days just pass by.  I would spend my weekdays eagerly awaiting for the weekends and when the weekend did arrive it went in a flash.  Just… View Post

Summer Stripes

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 one store that feeds my… View Post

Living On The Edge

One of the hardest questions I’m always asked is, “how do you define your style?” I always find this question challenging to answer because I can never accurately define my fashion style because it changes every day and every night, depending on my mood, the weather, my style inspirations, and so on.  Every fashion lover can agree the best thing about fashion is that you don’t have to stick to one style, but every day is a different day to use clothing to express yourself.  Some days you will find me dressing like a hippie, other days more preppy, even some days I’m wearing pink and more feminine pieces, or the complete opposite and wearing leather and all… View Post

Jump (suit) Into The Week

All week I spend the days eagerly waiting for the weekend and when the weekend finally arrives, I blink and then it’s Monday again.  Anyone else feel the same way?  Well I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, I know I did by exploring Central Park and visiting new, trendy restaurants in the West Village and Soho with friends. Ever since moving to the city, I feel like I have to be stylish 24/7 and even when I do “dress up” I’m always envious of everyone’s outfits in the city. Although, I don’t feel nearly as fashionable as everyone else… View Post

My New York City Apartment Tour

Hello everyone! This blog post is way overdue.  For those of you who don’t know, in March, I followed my dreams and heart and moved to New York City.  And for those who already knew that because you follow me on Instagram and keep up to date with all my city adventures, it has been a wonderful past couple of months as I make one of my favorite cities my new home. I knew once I signed the lease for my studio apartment on the Upper West Side, I had the exciting chance to decorate my new space the way… View Post

Denim On Denim

One style that I always felt funny wearing, just simply because I never perfected the look was denim on denim.  Whenever, I attempted to follow the denim on denim, I just felt like I was straight out of a movie or television show from the 90s, so I applaud the fashion bloggers who can wear perfectly head to toe denim.  In today’s style post, I finally broke through my fear of denim on denim and found the secret to perfecting the look…different shades of denim paired with other classic pieces from your wardrobe. One tip when it comes to matching denim… View Post

Mother + Daughter Style ft. Coastal

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 the best.    Recently, my mom… View Post
