#SperryMyWay with Sperry x Zappos Fall Fashion

Sponsored by Zappos. Fall is here to stay in New York City + I couldn’t be happier! I feel like these little duck-style boots are a Northeastern essential, and I am so happy Sperry is making them! Sperry is such a fantastic, quality brand that I have personally loved since my high school years + I know they’ll be reliable in whatever weather comes at me this season. I got the Saltwater in Brown/Olive, but they also come in Tan/Navy. These booties are waterproof, weather sealed, and provide so much traction that will be especially helpful during the icy Manhattan winter.

I have been partnering with Zappos for the past year + am so happy to continue on with them! Zappos is so, so easy to shop on. They have hundreds of your favorite brands (including Sperry!) and an incredible return policy. Shopping online for shoes used to be intimidating, but with their fast shipping + returns they make it so easy. Zappos also carries so much more than shoes, which I recently discovered! From active wear to accessories, they have you covered for any season!

Must-Have Fall Footwear for Photographers | The Lab by Dr. Scholl’s

Sponsored by Zappos. Today, I am sharing a pair of fashionable and functional sneakers with you all! If you live in NYC, you know that tennis shoes are a wardrobe staple. The Lab by Dr. Scholl’s Shoes has come out with a new line of footwear consisting of deconstructed sneakers and lux boots that pull inspiration from athleisure - the shoes are innovative and are leading in technology and design! Not to mention, since they’re Dr. Scholl’s they are SO comfortable! I love Zappos because they have a huge selection of styles, sizes, and colors and make returns easy. Buying shoes online can sometimes be a little tricky because of the fact they might not fit. Returns take 5 minutes and you just have to pop at the post office. Also, they more than just shoes! From designer accessories to athletic wear, this makes my indecisive heart happy because of the easy return policy. If you change your mind or something doesn’t fit right, they got you covered + have hundreds of other options that will suit your style.

I love all the detailing in this pair, from the marble edges, to the ruffle tongue, to the textured laces. This color is very different than my typical choice of white sneakers, and yet is still very versatile to style with most of my clothes. The soft material is very on-trend for fall as well! I think they look so chic against the Soho streets and are a major upgrade from my old kicks. You can snag my pair here - I picked the “Hydrangea” color!

New Hair + Brooklyn Bridge | Personal Style

This is my first post with my short brown hair! I am so in love with this cord jacket and skirt set, even tho it's a jacket it is pretty thin and works for summer! The color reminds me so much of Build + Bloom. Thank you Mink Pink for sending it my way! These images are taken on one of my favorite spots on earth, the brooklyn bridge, and edited with my 'west' lightroom preset from my stateside pack! Scroll to the bottom of this post to shop my entire look.

Side note but also not that off-center: can we take a moment to highlight these sunglasses. I have always LOVED this style of sunglasses ever since i saw my freaking queen laura jade freaking stone wear them last year. However, this is the only pair i have ever found ever (aside from a pair at a random booth at melrose market last spring i highly regret not buying) that fit my wide azzzz face. Most sunglasses this style are way too tiny for me, but these are PERFECTION! they're $38, which tbh is kind of pricy for me (OK AS I OWN KAREN WALKERS BUT) but it's worth it for this style. CLICK HERE TO SHOP IF YOU ALSO HAVE A LEGGO FACE.
