Sometimes I get that overwhelming feeling of, “I NEED to see this singer/band live.” It’s very rare but I know that when I’ve learned every word to every song I’ve been able to get my hands on that I’ve caught the music love bug. Banks was one of those. Ria had asked me if I wanted to see her months ago. At the time, I was a little unsure about whether or not I’d be going to see her at home or at the Boston show (remember, I was moving there once?) but I’m glad that seeing her at Grand Central worked out better for me. For one, small venues are always my favorite due to atmosphere and intimacy. I also got to meet her for a quick second after the show.

It was a great way to end my summer back home.

If you don’t know Banks yet (I’ve definitely posted a song of hers here before), then do yourself a favor.

Non-Clothes 101

+ Wildfox Couture Are You Afraid of the Dark T (Sold out, from 2011) + BDG Butterfly Shorts (Sold out) + SKIVVIES by For Love and Lemons Love You Knot Bra (Nasty Gal Exclusive) +

For the past 4 years, I’ve spent the hottest months out of the year in Miami, and the coldest ones in Providence. Miami decided to stay true to itself for my last summer in the homeland.

Cue loose T’s, tiny shorts, and what I call non-bras (bralettes with no lining or underwire) formed into what I call Non-Clothes. When it’s this hot out, all I ever want to do is be as naked as possible.

Round of applause to Wildfox for creating my favorite ode to 90s T, and just t-shirt in general. Comfiest shirt ever. I get compliments from anyone who can relate. Super cool.

It’s been ages since I felt like blogging but the itch is finally back. This outfit is from a few month back when I was a special guest at Fashion Happy Hour’s July Event, where I spoke about my style and styled my model, Michelle of D.A.M.A. Dolls.

For the event, I wanted something really laid back, cool, and effortless. Sometimes these types of events have the tendency to make people “dress out” (like Fashion Week ‘peacocking’), which if that’s your thing, you do you. My style, especially more recently than this, has been more about practicality and simplicity than anything else. I’ve even transitioned to boyfriend jeans…finally. More on all this soon.

You can find photos of the event below (go ahead and give them a ‘like’ too!):

I’m overdue for a post about what’s going on in my life at the moment. It’ll be around soon! For now, I’m happy in my first apartment ever in Providence and I can’t wait to share more.
