Tiny Reminders for My Mental Health

In this post: How a pair of chic tassel earrings kept my mental health in check at New York Fashion Week.  The Look: [sp] Tassel Earrings from Trumpet + Tassel // Velvet dress from ZARA ($20) // similar Nine West shoes ($76) // Styled by + outfit photos: Christina Stein Imberlina // *this post contains affiliate links* There’s a few reasons why I just adore this look. Of course, it fits right in with the jewel tone palette that I love to work with throughout my life. But, these tassel earrings became really special to me as I was wearing them. I wore this outfit on the last day of New York Fashion Week (which ended up being my favorite!). For me, the last day I’m in NYC always symbolizes two things – 1) that I get to come home and knock out my blog posts on all the exciting things I did and wore

2 Things That Helped Me Find Self-Care and Healing at New York Fashion Week

What’s in this post: A fashionable, energy healing statement necklace along with skincare products formulated especially for travel that both helped me take better care of myself this time around at New York Fashion Week.  The Look: [sp] Blue Raw Cut Hemimorphite Necklace from Joree & Jane // Similar Little Black Dress (ON SALE – $93.00) // Missguided Thigh High Boots ($114.00) // [sp] Activa Wood Sunglasses from Public Sunglasses ($79.00) // [c/o] Mimi Cork Vegan Teal/Croc Cross Body from Rok Cork ($178.00) // Styled by: Christina Stein Imberlina Simply put, healing is “the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again”. It’s normally an afterthought. We scrape our knee and then need a bandaid. We misstep when running and then need time for our muscle to heal before going back at it again. We get back from a week of traveling and then need a few days to recover. But is that the way we should be doing it? There are

Feeling Cool in Culottes

What’s in this post: The culottes I fell in love with during New York Fashion Week after thinking I’d never be able to wear wide leg pants, face flattering sunglasses made from wood (that don’t look like wood), and I bet you’ll never guess what this bag is made of!  The Look: [sp] Yatta Culottes in Ice Grey from Narrow Arrow ($64.67) // [sp] Wabisabi Shirt from Narrow Arrow ($117.29) // [sp] Activa Wood Sunglasses from Public Sunglasses ($79.00) // [c/o] Mimi Cork Vegan Teal/Croc Cross Body from Rok Cork ($178.00) // [c/o] Mist Grey Mule ($145.00) with Billie in Blush Strap ($49.50) from Alterre Shoes // Coachella Rose Tone Watch from Escape Watches ($195) // Similar Earrings (ON SALE – $37.50) // Styled by & Photos: Christina Stein Imberlina When Narrow Arrow told me they were sending me wide leg pants to wear during New York Fashion Week, at first, I was so excited. They looked incredible

A Charming Spring Summer 2018 Collection from Tanya Taylor

If I had to sum up the energy around Tanya Taylor’s Spring Summer 2018 collection, I’d call it charming ease – something I definitely need more of in my life. Inspired by a trip to Holland’s tulip festival, flower power graced the looks but not in a Miranda Priestly “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.” kind of way. Far from girly and flirty, the blooms were sophisticated, used with intention, and for the playing-by-her-own-rules kind of woman. Tanya is known for her hand-painted prints, but also played with graphic eyelet detailing and beautiful embroidery for this season. Stemming off her current pregnancy, drawstrings allowed for waistline flexibility and there were a number of always flattering wrap tops and dresses. The deep sea navy mixed with bright citrus, sunset red, and aqua blue palette left a nautical life meets day-at-the-garden vibe. Ease is something that rarely makes an appearance at New York

Finding Hygge in Central Park

What’s in this post: Figuring out what the heck “Hygge” means by getting in touch with both nature and the simpler side of living.  The Look: [sp] Round Neck Maxi Dress from Hygge Living ($32) // [sp] Bull Hoof Necklace from Simply Nature Bio Goods ($209) // Guilty Sunglasses from Public Sunglasses ($79) // Similar boots from Aldo ($180) // Wing Ding Cuff Bracelet from Kutula Kiss ($85) // Coachella Rose Tone Watch from Escape Watches ($195) // Cocktail Ring from 7 Charming Sisters // Styled by + photos: Christina Stein Imberlina // Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessoire cloth handbag – borrowed from Christina because she loves me ($495) I’m normally in New York City at least twice a year, and I have my spots that I go to every time.

My Favorite Collection from NYFW: Alice + Olivia Spring 2018

Every year at New York Fashion Week, there’s always one collection that blows me away. The kind that takes me away to another land where I forget about Instagram notifications and unanswered emails for a few minutes to soak up the magic. This season, that was Alice + Olivia. The setting was a re-imaged version of the iconic The Chelsea Hotel. Once functioning as a collective residence and place of creativity for cultural icons like Bob Dylan, Madonna, and Andy Warhol, it was said that there was a story behind every day. This rendition however, was a flourishing space for women artists. You can read more on the inspiration behind the collection and interactive gallery here. Designer Stacey Bendet played with contrasting themes and offbeat combinations to represent what she envisions as “artistic optimism”.  Somehow, someway, it all worked together, because as Vogue states, Bendet is literally the queen of Fashion Week. The

Living in the Moment with Francesca Liberatore SS18

There is a wall of shoes, suitcases stacked, clothes scattered everywhere, and our phones charging. We’re running out of time. Certain outfits then decide they hate us and will not pull up, push down and adhere to our bodies. Then the zen takes over. I have a flash of all the memories from the past few days and remember, “you are at fashion week, just go with it.” Why in the world do I need to stress when the whole thing is out of my control anyway? I don’t need any more gray hairs… Whenever I am about to travel, I stress and plan almost every minute of every day in order to give myself the greatest experience. So much so that I forget the over all purpose is to live in the moment I am given and to make the best out of it. To enjoy it for what
