Shirt: Forte Couture (similar, another option) / Shoes: Gianvito Rossi

I get asked all the time where my go-to shopping spots are. Of course, being in New York City, I have all the department stores and designer boutiques you would ever want at my fingertips. Sometimes, I just really want something different whether that be some cool vintage pieces or just discovering a whole new designer. I’ve been more inclined to online shopping since we’ve moved downtown and further away from my favorite department stores, so my go-to has been LUISAVIAROMA.com for their wide selection. Not only do they have my favorite designers where I go to see the newest collections first, but I love their site for finding all new emerging designers and. It’s actually a one stop shop for the whole family now since I can’t help but find myself going to the Mens and Kids section for Brandon and Ruby. They seriously have the cutest clothes for Ruby.. it’s impossible not to not get anything for her! Also, very important to note, they offer free express shipping and returns that makes my life that much easier. It comes all the way from Italy so I was so surprised to see my package arrive at my doorstep in less than 48 hours.

One of the brands I found out about on LUISAVIAROMA was Forte Couture, which is based in Tuscany. They do beautiful embellishments that really make the clothing look like a piece of art. I chose this particular denim button-down for the pop of jewel-tone embellishments and paired it with white jeans and patent & plexi cream Gianvito Rossi pumps. The plexi Gianvito Rossi are my favorite and I’ve found so many different styles and color ways I’ve never seen before from LUISVIAROMA. If only they could deliver some fresh pasta and cheese from Florence.. now we’d be talking!

Top: rag & bone Kacy Tunic / Pants: rag & bone Grace Pant / Shoes: Manolo Blahnik / Bag: Celine / Sunnies: Ray-Ban

In our next quest for the perfect NYC spot to shoot, I instantly thought of the Meatpacking District for this rag & bone look. Downtown cool defines rag & bone with its refined  tailoring, mixed with its sporty vibes and modern clean lines. How chic is this off the shoulder Kacy Striped Tunic? The cuffs are my favorite part that truly looks like I stole my husband’s dress shirt and pinned it right to my body! To juxtapose this tailored men’s inspired top, the cropped wide-leg Grace Pants go perfectly with its raw-edge hem. Rag & bone always makes the best bottoms for women – they really have mastered how to make a woman feel comfortable and sexy at the same time. I LIVE in their jeans and so glad I found these crisp white pants for the summer.

This entire outfit was inspired by my sister Danielle who is one of my biggest fashion inspirations in life. Her style is best described as effortlessly chic. Known for donning classic pieces with men’s inspired silhouettes, she makes it her signature look with a pop of femininity whether it be a heel or earrings. In this case, I added both of these to make it more me.

This post is in partnership with rag & bone.

As a new mom, I wish someone had warned me about how many different directions you get pulled by–from existing mothers, my own mother, friends and family, doctors.. at the end of the day what matters is what you feel is right and makes your baby happy. Everyone has their own unique situation and of course no baby is the same so no one can tell you what will work. When Ruby was born, I shared a few of my favorite newborn essentials and now that she’s just over two months now, I now know which baby items are ones that I cannot live without on a daily basis. My two top must-haves happen to be Munchkin products for the simple fact that it makes our lives as parents easier.

The Munchkin Diaper Pail is heaven sent! I actually chose this diaper pail for its sleek, clean look that aesthetically just looked the best in the nursery to match the neutral color palette. Not only is it a nice looking diaper pail with it’s modern design (which is hard to come by) but the functionality part is incredible. I mean, I wish all of our waste baskets in our home was this innovative and cool! It features an anti-odor technology that seals in any odor when the lid closes, with the help of Arm & Hammer baking soda. No matter what mom you are, the type of baby you have, this should be everyone’s must for a baby–this is hands down, something everyone can agree on.

The other product is the Latch™ bottle that’s made me feel better as a mom completely. I was so nervous to ween Ruby off breastfeeding, especially because I really wanted to be able to give my baby what I felt like was what I was supposed to as a mother. The Latch™ made this entire process so easy and seamless since the way the accordion-style nipple mimics how a breast stretches when the baby latches. On top of just making the process of doing full-time bottle feeding now, it’s just saved so much time and energy since Ruby latches on to the bottle right away without any issues. A few people have asked if my arms get tired from holding the bottle up a certain way and I convince them to convert to the Latch™ since it’s so easy to hold whichever which way.

As Ruby grows and takes on new strides, I’m sure I will add on to my list of essentials that make my life easier so I can just enjoy my time with my baby. I’ll make sure to share them along the way! x

This is one of my favorite spots to shoot. The light is perfection and the open space creates such a beautiful backdrop. I’ve always dreamt of living in the West Village so this walk way could be my backyard. In the mean time, it’s a nice walk over there (in flats) and we got some beautiful photos.

I was so excited that these flared jeans fit me again, the last time I wore them was the first month I found out I was pregnant and they wouldn’t even button. I paired them with a light flowy shirt that I bought on revolve.com for the Summer. I am constantly looking for pretty blouses to pair with all of my summer bottoms and this one hit the spot.

Thank you guys all so much for your e-mails and questions over the weekend. I’m busier than I’ve ever been with the baby and work so it’s hard to get back to everyone as quickly as I’d like to but just know I’m reading through all of them and they seriously are so wonderful to read and I honestly feel like I have the best followers in the world. I was telling my husband the other night after my snapchat rant that I genuinely feel like you guys are my friends (as weird as that sounds).

Anyway, thank you guys again! x

Jumper: Lucca Couture / Shoes: Christian Louboutin / Earrings: Jennifer Fisher / Bag: Chloe / Sunnies: Sunday Somewhere (similar) / Bracelet: Jennifer Fisher

We found this really cute little bar on Orchard street to shoot at that I drove by a few weeks ago. I loved the colors and how open the space was and it didn’t disappoint in the photos!

I ordered this jumper from Revolve because I had a dress by the same brand that I wore in Puerto Rico and I remembered how well it fit. It’s super affordable, quality isn’t amazing but it’s a piece I’ll live in this Summer and that’s about it. Who knows, maybe it’ll last longer! I love when I find a super affordable piece that I can pair with a high end accessory like my nude Louboutins.

I added some jewelry and of course a statement earring to complete the look. Only a few more days of shooting in NYC and then majority of my shoots will take place out East! I’m excited to start shooting out there because I never had in the past and I want to share with my readers the town I spend my summers in. It’s absolutely stunning. I will occasionally be back in the city so NYC shoots aren’t completely gone, but it will be a good mix!

Have a great weekend everyone. x
