Ever since moving to NYC, I have never felt more unproductive in my life. Okay…that is such an exaggeration, but I think you might get my flow. Every one is so busy, they’re in such a hurry and just ‘has somewhere to be’. Whereas myself, I am new here, I can count on one hand the amount of people I know/hangout with, and I would like to be one of those people who has somewhere to be, but I just don’t have anywhere to be. I just don’t. I don’t have appointments, I am not heading to the next major audition, etcetera etcetera. What I can say is that I would love to be one of those people with a purpose, or who seem to have a purpose. I feel funny saying this, because my observations are so indicative that “she’s not from around here”, but I can’t help it. I know I’ll get to where I want to be. I’m just super anxious to dive in and get acquainted with you New York. I’ve dreamed of you all my life and I loved you before I even knew you.

I must say, I am now in love with mixing and matching textures. I always stay in my “safe” zone and only use maybe 2 different textures in all of my looks. This time, I went all out! And I must say, it felt good to be a rebel. I mixed this chunky scarf, with an olive blazer, a lightweight top and leather pants. I think this outfit is perfect for the changing weather here in New York City. What do you think?
The sun is out and I’m jumping for joy! I’m more excited for my skin having the opportunity to see the sun. I am just way too pale. I am almost to the point where I will break down and get a spray tan. Have you tried it before? I’m hearing a lot of great benefits of a spray tan, not to mention you protect you skin by not sun bathing. Maybe I’ll do a spray tan review for you soon! What do you think?
Today I decided on wearing this super comfy and warm sweater since it’s still cold here in New York City. Yes, you heard me right. It’s almost the middle of April and it’s still cold. Since I’m tired of lugging around a bunch of heavy stuffy clothes, I put on my warmest sweater, with this cute jean jacket. In light of it being the spring season, I opted for white everywhere else. Let me be the first to say that if you intend on riding in the subway at all, on any given day in NY, DO NOT WEAR WHITE! I repeat, do not wear white! It’s a disaster waiting to happen. Luckily I was just going in my neighborhood to grab brunch with some of my homegirls.
Today was finally a beautiful day in New York City. The only down side was that it was super windy so it made it feel even colder, but other than that, it was gorgeous! I was able to get in a quick jog in the morning, meet up with 2 friends and even did a little lounging in Central Park. I love days where I have a chance to socialize and also have time to reflect and relax. Life is very busy, and has gotten only busier since moving to New York. I cherish these moments to unwind and enjoy the small things in life.
Many of us are motivated by the fundamental question of “who are you?”. We spend a good portion of our lives “finding ourselves” and going through different experiences and making certain choices because we believe that this will help find who we are. But how do you know when you’re found? Do you have an “ah-ha!” moment? Do you tell yourself “there you are! I was looking all over for you!” For me, I don’t know that I will ever find myself because I am always striving to be a better me. I am hungry to continue to gain knowledge, meaningful relationships and make a real difference. These thoughts came to mind when I saw the words ‘who are you’ written on at the base of a light pole in Brooklyn, NY. I wondered about the person who wrote those words. What were their thoughts when they wrote it? This sense of wonder was flooding my brain while strolling on a cracked, uneven sidewalk on a Sunday afternoon, with my hands in my Kenneth Cole coat because the 32 degree weather in March was not merciful.
So, as you’re reading this, I can almost guarantee you asked yourself the same question. Who are you? We would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. Feel free to comment below.

One of my only new year’s resolutions was to take more risks with fashion. Don’t play it so safe. I’ve always been good about adding a piece of flare here and there with either a pop of color or a bold statement piece. This year I would like to make myself uncomfortable and take more fashion risks! I used to be very daring and was so comfortable with my personal style, but as time has gone by, I noticed that I am around so many “serious” people. I would like to spice it up and get the “old me” back when it comes to funky fashion. So today I promise myself and the WrkItGirl.com team and you all who are reading, that this year will be a lot of new fashion choices and combinations. I cannot wait to go on this journey with you. I must admit, I’m a little nervous, but I hope that you will help me along the way and let me know if you did or didn’t like the outfit choice and why.I hope you all are having a great start to your new year! xoxo, Wrk It Girl

If you’re following wrkitgirl on Instagram (@wrkitgirl), you will know that we had a huge announcement to share! So the big news is….drum roll please! Wrk It Girl is MOVING TO NEW YORK CITY!!! I am so grateful to finally be able to share this news with you all! I have been holding it in for about a month now. I wanted to make sure that everything was solid before I revealed this huge change in my life. I’m not going to lie, I am actually pretty scared and anxious. I recently shared some advice on ‘Facing Change‘ and the inspiration came from what I was going through at the time and deciding to finally pursue my dreams in New York. I’ve wanted to live in New York for as long as I can remember and the fact that this is actually happening feels so surreal. So many people from all over the world dream of going to New York and I just feel so blessed that we (me and you) will be able to take this journey together! I hope that you come along with me on this journey. I’ve gotten this far with you, and I hope that you stay with me along the way. With our prayers and steady determination we will be successful together. Let’s do this! Wrk It Girl!
