MDW with Paragon Sports

If you saw my IG post earlier this week then you had a chance to hear that Paragon Sports chose me as their May pick for their on going NYC Fit Series. I spent an afternoon shopping around their Flatiron store here in NYC selecting my summer essentials from their plethora of merchandise. I typically head to Paragon for all of my running and ski gear but their selection of summertime pieces is impressive including ...

This Isn’t Dorothy’s Gingham Dress

Gingham is one of those prints that gets a bad rap. Too sweet. Too home on the range. Too Dorothy. You want to look more Mary-Ann than Dorothy right? But the real goal is to give off those Brigitte Bardot vibes … slight sex-appeal mixed with retro cool girl = the Bardot vibe achieved. But how does one get there and not stray down one of those other lingering paths? Here are a few tips ...

London Travel Diary: Notting Hill

To mine and just about everyone else’s disbelief I had not visited London until this summer. I’m still not quite sure how I lived in France, traveled the rest of western and a good part of Eastern Europe multiple times yet never managed to pop over the pond to one of the most charming cities I’ve ever visited. Truth be told this trip was to be quite different, I was supposed to start in Paris ...

Tropical ties

Today's post is going to be about as short and sweet as my outfit here. When the temps hit 90+ (or in the 100s like they have during all of my trips to Dallas lately!) the only thing to do is go MINIMAL. Crop tops, palm prints, high-waisted shorts and massive wedges FTW in this August heat. Shop similar pieces to recreate my outfit below: Zara top  (PS it's $9.99!)|| Vintage shorts || Forever21 wedges (they're deadly!) ...

It’s no secret over here on Impossibly Imperfect that I have a minor sweet tooth so it should really come as no surprise that I like to make the rounds and do a bit of hard research from time to time on the subject. Tough job but someone has to do it! While I’ll be bringing you various spots throughout the city in this ...

Pops of Pink

During summer's crazy hot August days I find that on the weekends I am usually rotating out cut offs and a tee, an easy dress or romper, they're my "it's 110 outside I can't deal" ensembles.  But regular rotation of my faves gets mundane so I recently found myself gravitating towards matching sets, they're cute and let's be honest here ... they are so easy to toss on for a brunch date after barre! This embroidered ...

The II Travel Diaries: Getting My Ride On in Miami

Rounding out this week's II travel series (make sure to check out post #1 and post #2!) on Miami is a brief recap of our fun bike ride excursion around Miami and the little places you must stop by. Luckily for us the Raleigh Hotel stocks ridiculously adorable bikes (similar to this one or this one!) so we snagged them for the morning and took off to explore the boardwalk area. We found ourselves at Jugofresh for morning juices, then ...
