Colorful Stripes


Obviously obsessed with stripes, colorful ones at that. I got this particular stripe maxi dress from Fashion Nova. My diamond shaped drop earrings are from my line by Nadia. Shout out to the comfiest heels I own from Steve Madden. I gathered a bunch of my favorite stripe pieces for you guys so you can be as bright as I am in this picture all Summer haha!

God it's been years since I've worn Mah Jing Wong. Backkkkk in the day when I first moved to NY his team hit me up to wear some of his pieces and they were sooo ahead of their time. Of course I said yes and rocked the shit out of his pieces. When I saw him on project runway I was like YESSSS!!!! Kill it! I'm so proud to see how far he's come. Seriously you guys check him out. He clothes always makes me feel like the baddest bitch, can't you tell by the pics? haha!

Amoudi Bay

Photo Jun 03, 10 56 17 PM I love me a good swing dress, especially with a cut out. I got this one from PLT but pretty sure they sold out so I put a few similar ones below. I wore this to the Northern part of Santorini where we visited Amoudi Bay. This was probably one of my favorite places. The water was incredibly clear, the food was amazing and came out quick, and the sun setting was indescribable. I definitely recommend going here. They also have really great seafood, duh...because it's a bay. I really enjoy the name Amoudi Bay because for one of my Instagram captions I titled it A Moody Bae. LMAO a little word play for you but that's really how you pronounce it.

Mesh Coverups

Photo Jun 02, 11 08 22 PM

Most of the time in Greece I wore ZERO make up. I only wore it when I did my actual Ted Talk performance. Let me tell you how I STILL broke out anyways haha. This was before my skin was mad at me so I was glowing. These mesh coverups are my favorite because you can still basically feel almost naked when you walk around but it's also not indecent exposure. I looooved how many Jeep like cars they have over there so I'd snap a picture every chance I could. This was above the place we were staying at. It was overlooking the water at the highest point.

Smooshed Butt

Photo Jun 04, 8 14 33 AM (1)

I feel like nothing is better than a good pair of distressed denim shorts and a white top. I usually go for something even more casual like a basic white crewneck tee but decided for Greece I should make it a little more dainty with this corset like top. I shot the denim look right outside the place we were staying at. This is also the same red swimsuit I wore in a previous post. I saw this view and instantly knew I wanted a smooshed buttcheek picture here haha! All of the blue and white during this Greece trip really inspired me.

This was one of the first days I was in Greece. I first went to Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center in Athens to rehearse my Ted Talk. It's so beautiful inside and you can also take an elevator up and oversee the city. I really recommend it. After my Ted Talk rehearsal which was terrifying (I'll explain the whole story once the video is up) we went straight to see The Acropolis of Athens. Seeing something of this magnitude just makes you realize how small you are in the world and humbles you. Well, for me it did. Thinking about how long it's been there and how so many people before you built it is mind boggling. The marble is also super slippery. Can't front that I almost busted my ass a few times haha! The photo of me on the beach is in Santorini. After my Ted Talk, we flew to Santorini and this was Kamari Beach, the closest beach to our Aribnb. The ground is black rocks so again, BRING SHOES! haha. I can't stress it enough. The have a little bar on the beach here where you can order really good tasting smoothies. Bring a beach towel or if you want to rent the chairs and umbrellas you can too so bring cash. There were kids jumping from the cliff which looked really fun but now that I'm 30 I figured it wasn't in my best interest lmao. My swimsuit is from ASOS by the way!

Mono Polka Dot Swim

asos one piece

We stopped at Santorini's White Beach which you can get to from a short taxi boat ride. It was soooo gorgeous and I even put some rocks in my bag to take home for memories. Some of the larger mountain rocks were so white they looked like glaciers. Fun fact for anyone wanting to go here in the future, BRING WATER SHOES! There are so many rock/pebbles that you have to walk on and some can get extremely. I wouldn't want you to burn your feet. Mine felt raw for damn near 2 days from having to walk on so many hot rocks. For some reason I thought the sand would be like Florida beaches but FALSE. haha! On another note, since it's mine and my best friend's 10 year friendaversary, we decided to get matching swimsuits from ASOS. The high cut mono polka dot one piece I'm wearing is my go-to now. God I love me some ASOS. Below in the slider you can see they have a ton of different cuts so you can get whichever you like most.

This was our last night in Santorini. We went to Thira, walked around, and ate dinner outside while the sun was setting. It was gorgeous. I ate a massive amount of bread with some sort of whipped cheese that had olives mixed in. The next morning we flew back to Athens and checked in to Dolce Attica Riviera, which is only about 20 minutes East of the Athens airport. I needed something close by so the next day we could shoot quickly to the airport again to go home. When I say home, I mean the U.S. since we didn't actually go to our house, we went to NY for a week so I could shoot a short film. For this look I wore a cute little rustic color romper and byNadia starfish drop earrings I designed. Think they're cute? I do too. In my last post I spoke about how I was walking around F21 and fond my swimsuit...yeah, well same with this knit romper haha. My little platform shoes are from PrettyLittleThings. I got them in both brown and white because if I like a pair of shoes I usually get them in multiple colors. This shot of the furniture, I's the lobby of Dolce Attica and I now want my future office to look exactly like it haha! Entirely inspired by the shapes and color combos. Forcing my boyfriend to smile because he was hangry. You know when people are like "make sure you feed your girlfriend or she'll turn into a gremlin" well JR is that gremlin.

Santorini Red Beach

Photo Jun 03, 5 38 39 PM

A few days before I left to Greece I was wondering around Forever 21 and saw this cute ruffle trim one piece swimsuit. Totally had to have it. I see online they also have it in white but unfortunately didn't see it in store the day I was shopping or I would've gotten it too. Greece was stunning. On this day specifically we went to the Red Beach which is basically the Southern part of Santorini. At first we didn't know you could take a taxi boat so we ended up parking the car and hiking up a mountain just to get to the beach below. I was out of breath but it was lowkey worth it because I got to snap a picture of the view. Afterward I swam to a rock that was semi-far from the shoreline and plopped up on it like a basking walrus.

Express Yourself

floral jean jacket

This blog post title seems fitting. I got this super cute co-ordinate matching floral set from Express. I'm full fledge fangirling over them. I use to shop at Express growing up and obsessing on how size inclusive their website and imagery is makes me love them even more. It's always so refreshing seeing someone model clothes who you feel like you can relate to. Back to Express though, they have THE BEST matching sets. I always loved them because all of their pieces have this classic look that you can wear it now and still wear it 3 years from now. The versatility of their clothing is like no other brand. This distressed floral denim jacket has the cutest skirt to match but you can honestly pair it with a light wash pair of shorts and call it a day. You guys can get $25 off $100 and be able to Express Your Own Rules by shopping in store AND online using code: 4007. Have fun shopping! T&C applied

Nike React

Driving down the I-10 in Los Angeles, I saw this giant billboard for Nike Epic React. I instantly thought how comfortable they looked. Then a week later I saw the hilarious commercial with Kevin Hart where everyone begins running together to help save Earth. Super clever. Watch it if you haven't. I wanted to try them out for myself so I got the grey Nike Epic React and the verdict is exactly what I thought they'd be, they're AMAZINGGGG. They're great for running, I even find myself even wearing them to run errands. If walking on a cloud was possible, I'm assuming this is what it feels like. I have a slightly bad left knee and two bulging discs in my low back from playing football in high school. I've been doing physical therapy 2 times a week and feel such a difference just from wearing these almost daily. Since I've upped my workout routine, I wear the Nike Rival bra which is designed for high impact workouts. I paired my Rival bra with all black Nike Racer Tights. I tend to get mostly black workout clothes so when I sweat it's not as obvious. Sometimes L.A. can get chili in the early mornings when I like to work out most so I just throw on Nike's Therma Sphere Element running top. I'm so thrilled that Nike launched plus size pieces. I remember when they released it I knew it was going to have such an impact on so many women. There can sometimes be such a misconception when it comes to people thinking plus women don't work out. No matter what journey you're on, it feels good knowing such a reputable brand like Nike stands behind all women.
