Here I am finally back in the big apple and I couldn’t be more happy. My two roommates and great friends of mine inspired me to get to work with tapping into my creative side and composing this post. It started off as a gloomy day and to no surprise my blankets seemed to be calling my name to stay wrapped up in them watching Netflix all day. However, the love for this blog, the motivation from my true blue babes, and the sun coming out (Vitamin D does wonders) had me up in the streets of SoHo getting a little salty. Climbing on scaffolds (yes I googled the correct name for those things they put up when they are working on parts of the street) was pretty fun. I mean I had tourists snapping pictures of me like I was a real celeb/model/crazy person.

So here are more details of my rainy day that turned rad:

Romper: LF specifically from LF SoHo check that place out bloggers the staff is amazing and they have items worth making the trip for from wherever you might be coming from.

Confession: I hate rompers! I think everyone has a type of clothing they feel they can’t wear because it doesn’t flatter them. My fear of fabric consists of rompers. I love the way they look on everyone else but myself. However, remember how I said the staff at LF SoHo was fabulous. They encouraged me to give this romper a chance because it actually looks like a dress on and to my surprise I loved it!

Jean Jacket: I packed a light jean jacked to throw over the romper incase it got a little chilly later on. Mine was from the clothing company Blank which can be purchased in many different stores and online.

Shoes: My thigh high suede boots are from Stuart Weitzman which can also be purchased in stores or online.

Bag: Prada tote in Cameo

Happy Friday everyone I hope you enjoyed the end of the week post as much as I did!

Hi I’m Rachel... Born and raised in New Jersey where I received my Master’s Degree in Communications, had my first job experiences, and realized my purpose in life was to help make a difference. In 2013, I moved to New York City where I had dreams of being in the fashion industry. I took a fashion PR workshop and reached out to a speaker I was inspired by for an internship. Elle Communications helped me discover my love for social good brands and fashion with purpose. For a year I was one of Diane von Furstenberg’s assistants which was an experience I will be forever grateful for. Working for a fashion legend I never learned so much in such a short period of time. It helped me grow both professionally and personally immensely. I lost my aunt to lung cancer six years ago and became involved with Free to Breathe a nonprofit organization with a mission to double lung cancer survival by 2022.  They wrote me the most beautiful letter about my involvement since 2011. I am now currently fundraising for this year’s walk and team captain to Deb’s Dreamers.  I have raised over $5000.00 for lung cancer research from 2011-2016. Another organization I feel strongly about is The Pajama Program. A non-profit that offers at-risk children books and pajamas so they can enjoy bedtime. I have been a volunteer reader giving me the opportunity to both read and see the process of when the children receive pajamas and get to take a book home of their choice. The program is amazing and I look forward to participating in the upcoming Pajama Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Continuously trying to find a way I can put my love for social good, fashion, and communications together to make the most impact.

    1. Thank you love! It’s a romper which I usually never like to wear but the fact that it looks like a dress is what I loved about it!
