Fashion week has come and gone in New York, and now we all know what to wear this coming spring 2016 (and it’s probably nothing from future presidential candidate Kanye West’s collection). For once it’s not florals on top of florals, and instead, for what I suspect is the first time in history, the fashion forecast and the weather forecast are the same: blue skies and puffy, white clouds.
Yes, friends, my time has finally come. Those of you who know me or follow my Instagram know I really, really love clouds. I love wearing clothes with cloud patterns or even just in white and blue colors that resemble the sky. This is a trend that has yet to catch on and makes me seem a little eccentric. But while I was in Paris this spring, I spotted a dress in a boutique that was covered in a cloud print, and I knew it was only a matter of time before New York picked up on it.
And here we are. The Mara Hoffman Ready-To-Wear Spring 2016 collection is the stuff of my dreams. In addition to flowy, white dresses and psychedelic rainbow patterns, the designer dressed many of her models – and even her adorable family! – in head-to-toe cloud print. I love everything about this collection and can’t wait until I can get my hands on it!

I’m not going to say I started this trend, but . . . here I am at fashion week last year in September 2014. 😉
Hi friends! Thank you so much to everyone who has been following my blog for the past few months. It’s been a lot of fun and it means a lot to me.
I’m finishing up my last final today and moving out of my apartment this weekend, so I most likely won’t post any more until I’m in Paris. I definitely plan to keep updating this blog with pictures from my trip, so follow me here and on Instagram if you’re interested in seeing those!
I thought this shirt from Brooklyn Industries was perfect for finals week. “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” has been my mantra for the past few years, but it’s never so relevant as during finals. 😉

My best friends will tell you that while I love fashion, my first love is food. So needless to say, food festivals like Smorgasburg are my absolute favorite place to be on a Sunday morning. Smorgasburg is a place that I recommend to both fellow New Yorkers and tourists, because it has something for everyone to enjoy: great food, a fun Brooklyn vibe, and a beautiful view of the lower Manhattan skyline. There are dozens of vendors every weekend, so there’s also something for every taste, whether you’re paleo, vegan, or on an all-carb diet.
Flowy, loose layers are great for spring, but mostly great for hiding the pudge you get after eating a ramen burger, spicy tuna poke, and a thai tea fudgesicle. If you’ve been to Smorgasburg, let me know what food is your favorite!

I love trying new styles and wearing skirts and dresses, but I’m most comfortable in a simple pair of jeans. I like to pair jeans with a denim button down on days when I don’t want to think too hard about finding clothes that match.
Those of us who remember 2001 know that there is a thing as too much denim:
But as long as you don’t own a denim cowboy hat, you’re probably okay.
