I recently started my workout regimen again, which includes spinning, yoga and a mix of some weight training classes. I am one of those, all or nothing people. Either I workout 6 days a week or I end up NOT working out for 6 months at a time. I’m trying to kick this bad habit and in hopes of doing so I’ve been styling my athletic gear with my everyday wear. I practically live in workout gear these days so why not use this to my advantage and play up the versatility of this Neon Nike Bra. Are you like me, an “all or nothing” when it comes to working out? What do you think of the look? Would you wear workout gear out?

I can not help to be a bit sadden that summer is leaving us soon. It has by far been one of the best summers in terms of weather and better yet, career. If you are not following me on IG, do (!) (MaiStylePages) because I post my work there  and you would have already learned, I now style two beautiful actress from “Orange Is The New Black”, Diane Guerrero and Jackie Cruz. What’s coming in the future? Some super exciting news, I’m keeping my fingers and toes cross and hope I’ll be able to share it with you guys soon.

New York City has been just so gorgeous. I hope you are out enjoying the rest of summer.

Do you ever  have one of those days when you bangs won’t flip a certain way, no matter how much you try? It doesn’t matter how hard you blow it with a round brush or apply an endless amount of product to get it to stay. Have no fear.. put on some head gear! Yes, I am totally saying it the way you think I am and I’m imagining one arm raised with a cape on. Pssh… don’t judge me. But seriously, if you are having a bad hair day throw a hat, scarf or silk wrap on and make it a style statement versus a bad hair day.

VEST : NINO BRAND

BOTTOM : ZARA

NECKLACE: XEVANA

Would you not feel like a Samurai Ninja in this vest? Interestingly, this Nino Brand vest was inspired by a vintage Vietnamese top. Only recently have I found traditional clothing more appealing. I’ve been trolling the internet for a vintage Kimono. And I know what you are thinking, everyone at the music festivals are layering their crop top and ripped denim with a Free People Kimono. But what I am referring to is a full on double draped silk, fall to the ankle,  wide sleeves, couldn’t get more traditional kimono – well minus the cherry blossums, but you know what I mean. If anyone happens to stumble upon a sky blue & white silk kimono, you know where to find me.

Oversized Cardigan

Greetings from NYC. I officially moved into Williamsburg for the summer. Life has been extremely chaotic with new jobs for both Leon and I and two moves on top of it all. I love my new neighborhood and my roommate has been super sweet acting as my tour guide around town. This last week was a busy one, with a four day shoot for The Fader Magazine Fall/Winter issue.

It was nice to roll with my mentor Mo and some new friends to back to back parties at Levi’s and the issue release party for The Fader. My work life has nothing but new adventures lately, but I find myself unable to sustain life outside of work. How do you stay dedicated to your career and maintain friendships at the same time? It has always been something that I have struggled with. I consider myself a hard worker but how can I balance a busy work life and be a good friend? Any tips from those of you who can maintain it all?

Happy Fourth!

Happy Independence Day everyone! I hope the impending hurricane didn’t ruin ALL of your plans. I hope you are still able to surround yourself with family and friends, and perhaps enjoy some stove top food vs grilling in the rain.

As for me, I will be enjoying the firework (if it still happens!) from my balcony. We actually just moved out of downtown Philly, into a very quiet town. I’m not quite use to it but the good thing is I’ll be living in Williamsburg for the summer to transition. I’m excited about my adventures in NYC and having roommates again.

Have a great weekend and 4th of July.

White Accessory

BAG PURCHASED IN GAROSUGIL, KOREA.

This bag was purchased in Garosugil also known as “tree lined streets” in Seoul. Though I loved many of the shopping options in Seoul, Garosugil was my favorite!  The outdoor shopping is  the reminiscent vibe of New York’s Soho district. The area consisted on many small boutiques, ateliers and the cutest restaurants and coffee/tea shops. I may have had one of the best milk tea of my life there!

The great thing about being petite aka miniature aka fun-sized like me is  turning skirts into dresses. Yup, pair your skirt dress with a white shirt and bam (!) a whole new outfit. I love investing in versatile clothing because its more bang for my buck. Speaking of savings, Promo Code: MAISTYELPAGES still works and will save you some bucks at NINObrand.com so check them out!
