What Inspires You?


Life is nothing without inspiration. For as long as I can remember I’ve been inspired by vintage, bold colors, poppy prints. Besides fashion, my other inspirations come from almost anywhere but here are my most recent: watching an amazingly serene sunrise from inside my Harlem apartment at 6am, the cuter-than-cute heart shaped latte that I got from Doughnut Plant last week after lunch with a new friend. Recently, I came across this fun image from an outfit post earlier this year. It’s extra special because it’s shot by my boyfriend and it’s also one of my all-time favorite looks to date. I’m wearing a vintage coat and pants from Biddies + Blokes, layered denim pieces (I love these from Guess), Topshop heels (similar) and an armful of African bangles (I’m lusting after these here and here)
