Be Kind Today

be-kind-today-tee-shirtLabor Day weekend is always one of my favorites long weekends. The weather is generally beautiful and I’ve learned over the years that it is the calm before the storm — which in my case is fashion week. I really prioritize making it relaxing since I know I’m gearing up for a few weeks of little sleep, being on my feet non-stop — all while trying to look good for the biggest never-ending fashion event of the year.

James and I haven’t been home much the past month so we decided instead of making elaborate plans with friends we’d stick close to home and drive up the Hudson and explore. We stopped in Tarrytown for lunch and then headed to Rockefeller State Park for hike. Set on a beautiful lake that’s a little over mile to walk around and covered in lily pads, we could not have asked for a more gorgeous day. It was so great to pack a backpack (you know I’m all about my insanely lightweight LeSportsac packs) and be out in nature. It’s also the first day I dressed for fall, and the hike gave James and I both an excuse to wear our new Teva’s from their fall collection. While I love my summer brights, I have missed the blacks, grays and more autumn shades in my wardrobe. My tee is actually a new gift from Doc Shorty. They make super soft tees (all made in the US) with kind message and donate 10% of the profits to multiple sclerosis research. It’s amazing how many more smiles you get passing by people when they read “Be Kind Today” on your shirt.

It’s amazing how a walk in the woods, surrounded in silence can offer such a recharge! I hope you all had an awesome weekend! xoLara @prettyconnected

The 90s Now: Chokers, Teva’s, Fanny packs?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the 90s recently. It’s pretty hard not to when Teva’s are everywhere and every themed event you attend is the 90s and your mailers are filled with Ring Pops and scrunchies (a brand even sent me the first season of 90210). I’m all about embracing my childhood and reliving it but with a modern twist. I bought my first pair of Teva’s in middle school, and still can’t believe I’m all about them and platforms again. And while I love that decade, I do think we need some updates so I thought I’d break down some of my best pointers starting with… DO NOT buy a black choker. Instead get a piece of black ribbon, tie it around your neck and call it a day! It will fit better and cost under $1.


Know how to work a fanny pack – I have seen some cute ones on the market and am obsessed with Hands Free Wallet crossbody I doubled as a fanny pack from LeSprotsac. It’s so lightweight and holds everything I need (built in wallet, phone, lipstick, eyeliner), although I’ll admit I usually wear it more to the side or back. Between having surgery for a herniated disc two years ago and the fact that usually my dog, phone or a drink occupies my hands, not dealing with a purse is kind of amazing! Also backpacks keep continuing to grow in popularity which I’m all for as well.

Not me, and I own a million. I finally found my perfect gold watch this year with this Henry London Chiswick Bracelet Watch. The majority of my watches are mens (James and I actually share the collection) and this one is a found new addition to the family. Especially since their watches are really special. We even got the back engraved with our initials.

Celebrating Swim Season with StyleWatch and Teva!


On Wednesday night I had a blast celebrating the swimsuit issue of StyleWatch magazine with my fellow bloggers at Vandal in NYC. I always enjoy the magazine launch parties but this one had special significance since I was one of the bloggers featured in the issue.  At the party I ran into one of the other blogger babes featured, my girl Rachel Martino. I’ve known Rachel far before she became a blogger when she was an intern and we worked together. It’s so awesome how the world works and being able to share this moment together.


Teva sponsored the party and created a super fun experience. They let guests pick between their classic Original Universal style and Flatform Universal style and then enter the DIY station to bedazzle them with jewels and studs. Now I grew up in the 90s and owned the Original Universal as my first pair back in middle schools so I’m so excited these and and everything from that decade are coming back in a big way!

Teva’s are super comfortable and waterproof, I lived in them when I was at Coachella so I’m all about growing my collection. I actually have my eye on this super cute one from their collaboration with Derek Lam. They also have a really cool artist collaboration collection going on right now.
