TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

new year, same me. bigger goals, bigger challenges.

this might be my busiest year yet. (and were only into the third week) for many, that could bring endless anxiety and sleepless nights. but for me, it leaves me with a hunger and drive to keep pushing forward.

this year is the first time i don’t set any resolutions for the year ahead of me. instead, I’m setting goals. small goals like breathing and stretching in the morning to larger goals like expanding and growing Spin Gallery.

i’m a few weeks away from opening Spin Gallery’s first store front (invite coming out soon!), creating content for my websites, meeting some pretty amazing locals and just having a blast.

one thing for sure, i hope to grow and transition my blog into a more personal and lifestyle driven site where i can inspire those around me to follow their creative desires and passions. a space where you will find the ups and downs of my daily routine, food and bev (obviously) and everything in between.

I’m just a girl who had a dream and it led me here. let’s see where else it takes me. xx

NEW IN: Spin Gallery #Fall

Introducing the latest pieces from Spin Gallery! This collection is comprised of fall tones + textures, making the transition from summer to fall fun and easy.

I am loving the fit of the trapeze tee + the flare jeans! They have the familiarity of essential pieces you’d normally gravitate to for basics back in the 70s, but with a modern flair to them. Hope you love all the new pieces as much as I do! x

These Boots Were Made for…

ME. (and walking.)

Ashley Sixto Boots

p.s. Excuse my razor stubble…#imlazy

 These boots make me feel a bit Peter Pan-ish with their pointy toe front, but I couldn’t resist the white pattern contrast on the back of them!

NYFW Has Begun

NYFW always gets me excited.

I love to scan through countless images of upcoming trends on the runways + all the fun (and way too funky) street style. I’ve never been able to physically be a part of Fashion Week, but I would love to one day.

I’m looking forward to masculine touches, sleek lines and pops of bold colors! As you can see, I’ve  already chosen some of my favorite looks above. Definitely keeping them as #Spinspiration for new looks to come on SpinGallery!

What are your favorite things about Fashion Week? Any designers you are looking forward to seeing?

Splurge vs Steal: Fendi vs Spin Gallery

I (almost) forgot how relaxing it was to jot down my current feelings and mood through my fashion musings, house decor, daily life and food. Now that I’m back on the blog, I’ll be posting all sorts of things from wishlist cravings for the home + inside the closet, behind the scenes on Spin Gallery and whatever else comes to mind.

So to celebrate being back, I figured I would start with a Splurge vs Steal!

I’m so fascinated with fur accessories at the moment. It’s very posh without being over the top. The fall is such a fun season to play around with new, different textures before taking the plunge into winter wear.

What’s your favorite accessory trend for this upcoming Fall/Winter season?
