A boyish girl's outfit to hang with boys
Hey now! I wrote another article for Refinery 29 focused on date night style with menswear pieces! Check it out:
I know what you’re thinking. You like your edgy, menswear style and there’s no way you’d trade it in for a feminine silhouette with a ruffled hem. But date night doesn't have to require pink dresses covered in rosettes. While there's nothing wrong with girlish dresses, it's just not you. So, I've got some tips for a flirty look without sacrificing your tomboy swag.

During the summer the city comes alive with tons of outdoor events like films in the park, music on Governor's Island, and street festivals in midtown and on the Upper East and West sides. It's the best time to get out and adventure with friends after months and months of cold weather.
I take a lot of concert photos for assignments, and for this month's Q&A at Refinery a reader asked what to wear instead of a typical "cut offs and tee" uniform to attend shows. Up above is an outfit I'd wear to groove in all night long. Click here to read the rest of my answer!
Next weekend, I'll be reporting from FULL MOON, a one day music festival by the water. Be sure to watch out for my show and style photos to be published on R29 shortly afterward!

After two days on the beach, I wanted to see more of the historic part of town and found my way to Old San Juan. I fell in love immediately, over breakfast of a Mallorca sandwich and coffee.
I wore this flirty blue dress by Abacaxi NYC, but the breeze was so strong that it kept pulling up my dress every few steps, as you can see from the photos. No matter, because I always wore a bathing suit underneath my outfit. The ruffle skirt derail is so cute and I actually liked all the movement in the dress.
I tired easily from the heat and walking around Old San Juan, so I spent some time sitting in a bar facing the street drinking cold beer. Watching the passersby strolling and dancing to the music paying the roads, it was a welcome form of relaxation unlike most in NYC.
Feeling refreshed, I found my way to a fortress near the beach. Walking along the shore, I came across some more abandoned old stones, as well a little hut by the sea. Eventually I ended up back at Condado, where I met some friends. We ate beach food along the shore, went boating, and found a spot to anchor and swim in the water.
At day's end, it was time for dinner and drinks. I had an excellent seafood mofongo, with whiskey at a dive bar afterward.
Worn out from my jaunt across the island, I headed back to Rio Piedras to lay my head down and sleep against the backdrop of once again chirping birds in the backyard.
