Dreaming With Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream

As we enter a new season and get closer to the end of 2014 I took a look back at what I’ve accomplished so far this year. With my app creation, move, and completing my web series, I have a lot to be proud of. But what’s next? What do I want to accomplish this year and the next? What I wanted was a bit difficult to put into words and it wasn’t very clear to me. Luckily Marc Jacobs has a site where you can create “dream capsules’ using inspirational images that tie to your goals and dreams.

After selecting images for my “dream capsule” while listening to the awesome “Daisy Dream” Pandora playlist that Marc Jacobs curated himself: http://www.pandora.com/station/play/2193106714811130318 it turns out I dream of traveling often, very often. So hopefully if I focus I can make it happen and my dream will come true. I’ll go on a fashion week world tour! The images in my “dream capsule” were much clearer than making a bucket list. If you’re curious as to what your dreams look like visit the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream “dream capsule” microsite.

And once you create and submit your dream capsule, you can enter the Marc Jacobs Dream Daisy sweepstakes for a chance to win one of the weekly prizes including Marc Jacobs fragrances, accessories, and the grand prize: a Marc Jacobs experience you thought you could only dream of!

I love the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream fragrance; it’s such a light and dreamy scent that stays on all day, despite the NYC heat wave. I received so many compliments during fashion week it was the perfect accessory.

fête fall with Target® C9

I love New York City, but during the summer it can be brutal. That’s why I’m loving these last days of summer with hints of Fall around the corner. I’ve already started wearing my dresses with cardigans wrapped around my waist for the cooler weather. One of the things that I’ve started to enjoy even more are going for bike rides. On a hot day you leave your apartment dolled up but arrive at your destination looking like Raggedy Ann. This was a bummer because riding a bike to and fro is the easiest way to stay active.

What to wear on a Chic City Ride:

1. Wear a helmet!
2. Comfortable (but chic) clothing
3. Flats or cute sneaks (from Target® C9 collection)
4. A messenger or cross-body bag
5. Flowers (optional but definitely make ride more enjoyable)

Target Active Wear

How are you staying chic and active during these last days of summer?

Chic Eats:: A Salt & Battery~ West Village NYC

After a marathon of The Only Way Is Essex on Hulu I got a craving for fish and chips. Thank goodness for A Salt & Battery in the West Village. They have great menu of fish platters and battered well everything including Mars bars. I loved how the cashiers played along as I ordered a fish meal when we both knew the reason I was there was for the Mars bar.

With summer ending I had to take a few photos of my favorite sandals this season from Loly in the sky.  Chic and comfy these sandals were perfect for navigating the city streets. Lunch,shopping and of course coffee dates these heels work for any occasion.  I will be stocking up on some of their flats this Fall.

Visit Loly in the sky before I but them all ; )
