When I think of people in my life I would call part of my tribe one of my best friends Dylana of Color Me Nana is top of my mind. I feel so lucky to have spent the entire summer with this amazing babe. Only really knowing her for 2 years I feel like she was my long lost soul sister right from the start. My "tribe" is spread across the world and I love that I have been able to meet amazing people from all walks of life from different places and different cities. Some stick for life and some are just part of it for a flash. There is always a reason why people come and go into your life, I am a strong believer of that. They all have a purpose don't forget to notice those little reasons "why". I also believe that the people you surround yourself with reflect who you are and where you are going in life. Positivity and inspiration seem to be a traits that remain really important to me. Dylana and I nurtured our summer adventurous side, our love for music festivals and tested our friendship with 4am wake up calls and fashion week madness this summer. In midst of all the crazy, she always inspired me to work harder and always encouraged my creative side of the brain to vier farther out of the comfort zones one can get stuck in. I am going to go ahead and say this one is part of the tribe for life! Photos by Natalie Suarez

Matching set by Tularosa, Jacket from Missguided, Hat by Worth and Worth

Always being on the go this Summer, matching separates were the perfect go to for an easy outfit. This cali label is the perfect fit for my every day style, I could grab any of their pieces and make the look mine in a second. Making something beachy into a city look, is like a summation, add a leather jacket and add hat and voila = city look! While on the go this summer we always got to roam around the best parts of New York finding cool spots to snap our looks in. Location scouting in East Village was my favorite, every corner a new treasure, different colors, trees and alleys lined with cute doors and stoops. On that note, Happy Monday Loves!

Must-Do or Taboo? Outdoor Meditation

This summer has been all about overcoming life challenges. I have been faced with making some serious decisions, while still trying to enjoy the sunshine and wanderlust. There are certain times in our lives when everything demands attention: Love, life and career all hit the crossroads at once and you need to make a decision now. So, it was time to gain some clarity.
I decided to push my mental and physical boundaries and take to the yoga mat for some light stretching and meditation. But I decided to skip the class and venture out on my own. Taking a fitness class, whether yoga or cardio barre, is an amazing way to work out and feel motivated by those around you. But making yourself do the work solo forces your brain to shut off. Controlling your thoughts and your body at the same time is a true challenge. This is a “must-do” if you have busy days and a crowded mind. It was the most challenging workout I have ever done. Meditating for 10 minutes felt like I had run in circles for an hour in the dark. As soon as I forced myself to concentrate on my breathing, the beach and the sound of the waves, my brain calmed down and so did my body. It felt so amazing to be able to sit in still mode and leave the noise of my busy social media life behind me and just concentrate on the simplest thing there is to focus on, and that is simply how it feels, #FreetOBe.

I will definitely continue to take charge of my mental workout by hitting the yoga mat for 30 minutes a day and work on finding some balance, peace and clarity in my thoughts. It’s empowering to take charge of your body in this way and completely boosts your confidence. This is no taboo ladies, it’s a “must-do” for strengthening your inner self. It’s not easy, and don’t be discouraged if you find it difficult to just sit still and be. I think practice, as with anything, will make this the most beneficial, and I have no doubt it will encourage a clearer, more balanced mind and lifestyle.

So excited to be hitting the streets with the perfect Botkier bag this Fall. Size matters and this tote is the perfect fit for all I need to be carrying around with me this season. I teamed up with Refinery29 to share this little PreFall look with you all. I adore the seasons and haven't had much of them in the past couple years. I have been escaping the seasons with my travels to the southern hemi last year and lets face it California doesn't really get the real Fall frost going on either. This year I plan on experiencing it in full force. Leaves turning colors, layering coats and sweaters and crisp morning strolls. I can not wait! Monochrome colors seem to be following me into this next season as well as a more structured and simple over all look. That makes grey the most fitting color to add to every outfit, as my arm candy. I have not put this bag down since it arrived in my little hands and don't plan too, I am not much of a bag switcher so if one sticks, its staying a while.

Last day over Summer is official over and we are welcoming Fall. I have so much love for this past season of adventures and it wouldn't have been the same without my partners in crime, Natalie and Dylana Suarez. I am so excited to have been able to rock one of my favorite pieces from Amuse Society this summer. This california based brand is about to hit stores for the first time and it is going to take your closet wish list by storm, mark my words. I got to preview the collection, which is full of beautiful prints, california cool silhouettes and a little girl gear for the beach and surf that has never been seen or done before! Basically its my dream wardrobe as well! Stay tuned, I am sure you will be hearing more from them soon! Happy Monday loves!
