style journal // on the go.

Posted on October 27th, 2015

I am constantly on the go, from gym to work, to meetings with publishers and innovators, drinks and dinner on the weekdays, and then away to the Hudson River Valley for hikes and country air, Long Island for sunset sails and impromptu trips to LA or SF to catch up with friends on the weekends. And from what you can see from my Instagram, my style evolves based on how I feel, how I want to feel, and where I am going.

I always need my armor of black when I’m in the city and going to work. I feel protected and ready for anything when wearing black. Depending on where I am for the weekend, I channel a bit of my destination in my own way. This weekend, I decided to stay in the city for once and catch up with friends I haven’t seen in a while, work on a few projects and get my life back in order after launching a huge campaign at work, which required a lot of running around in. Nikes continue to power my life, at the gym and when I’m on the go, functionally and stylistically, which means I’ve cycled through quite a few pairs. I definitely could not be as active as I am, pursuing life’s passions, without my Nikes.

What pair of shoes keeps you motivated and in action?

Who knew a space like this existed in Queens, tucked away between warehouses, behind Costco?

An all black canvas, simple in form.

style journal // short suits + APL sneakers.

Posted on September 15th, 2015

The evenings have brought back that autumn chill, and I’m not sure how mornings I have left to wear shorts and my tank to the gym.. I love Fall, but I’m still not ready to let summer go! Until I absolutely have to wear pants, I’m going to keep on going in my shorts, throwing on a blazer when needed to go from gym to errands to dinner or going out.

Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL) sent over these awesome multi-colored TechLoom Pro sneakers to add to my collection and they have been lifesavers. Though they may be a far deviation from all of my black sneakers, the vivid knit colors offer an added dimension to my all-black gym-wear and all-black wardrobe. And just like my shorts suit, my APLs go seamlessly from day to night, you know, from track to dance floor ;)

Next on my list: these neon glow in the darks or Breast Cancer Awareness pink.
