Hustlerpreneur

fullsizerender-2

I know that most of my blog posts are about fashion but just to be clear, while I hope my blog posts bring you value, these posts are truly to get my thoughts put on “paper” and to tell myself things I need to hear.

My focus has been on massive action. I don’t feel like I’ve produced the amount of action that I possibly can, so I always feel like I need to work harder. I need to produce this action because I have goals that I can’t describe with words. But if you have ever described yourself as entrepreneurial, you probably know what I’m talking about.

There is a voice in me that tells me I’m not average and I’m meant for more.

This “voice” has created an obsessive drive that energizes me to a point that I operate on 4-5 hours of sleep every day unless I drug myself to death with horse tranquilizers (no joke, just ask my boyfriend). As I typed that, I understand it might not be healthy but I have no other choice. My soul isn’t satisfied unless I do as much as I can, with the time I have, to get to the next level.

When I’m out, maybe at the grocery store or something, everyone seems like they are satisfied with working at their 9-5 Monday through Friday. They look forward to the weekend and a case of their favorite beer. Not me.  ( I only drink tequila)

I don’t like taking time off from working, there is so much to do. I don’t look forward to Friday, I look forward to Mondays because “business people” are finally back to work and available to communicate. I don’t even like using the word “work” because I’m not working. I’m doing something else, I’m striving, building, growing, hustling, grinding, or pushing, not working. I know it’s work but not in the sense that average people use the word.  I was recently at dinner with some new folks and was explaining this very point, I love what I do so therefore its not “work”.

Whatever it is in your life, find something you feel so strongly about that you will do anything it takes to achieve the next level of greatness. Then strive for the next level. If you don’t, what are you living for? What will you be known for? Will you be known for being average, predictable, or something else that’s insulting?

Average sucks! Make a decision not to be average. Do something that the universe will notice.

The Perfect Moto Jacket

BLANK NYC Easy Rider’ Faux Leather Moto Jacket

Finding the perfect moto jacket for fall can be a bit of a challenge. With the variety of options available now you don’t have to settle anymore. You can find the one I’m wearing here at Nordstrom  for $98.  It comes in 4 different colors so you can even be like me and get all 4 (no self control).

The motorcycle jacket (moto for short) is a classic piece that will never go out of style, this is the reason it gets reinvented every year. But no matter the fabric, color, or shape when buying a moto jacket make sure it stills has the essence of a motorcycle jacket and fits your figure perfectly.

One of the things you need to consider when shopping for a moto jacket is the front closure. A jacket with a diagonal zipper is great for slimming your waist. A jacket with a straight up and down zipper is perfect for bustier women it’ll streamline your figure. If you want to create the illusion of curves then you need to find one with a cascade front. I’m petite so all three of these styles work for my small frame.

You can wear a moto jacket an endless amount of ways; this is the reason you should invest in one that will last you years. I’m wearing mine with a Cascade Cardi from Free People for $128.

However you decide to wear your moto jacket, just be sure to wear it with a smile.

BLANK NYC Morning Suede Moto Jacket

An iconic piece made famous, the motorcycle jacket, aka “the moto” has added a chic edge to our wardrobes for as long as I can remember. Favored by the most stylish fashionistas in the industry, moto jackets add instant style to any ensemble. Warning: instant bad-ass appeal is more than likely to come with the territory.

Sweater weather, yes please…

As someone who is obsessed with fall, I firmly believe that you can never have too many cardigans and chunky sweater — like, seriously, it’s impossible. And although it still might be excruciatingly hot where you live, it’s never too early to start stocking up on essentials.

What’s great about sweaters is that they’re really easy to style for any occasion. You can dress them up or down depending on what you accessorize them with, what shoes you choose, and hair style you want. Oh, and the best part about chunky knits? They’re comfortable and stylish, making them perfect for nights out when you don’t feel like dressing up, but still want to look fashionable. Basically, big sweaters are all around amazing.

Have fun this fall and stock up on sweaters, kick up some leaves and sip some hot chocolate (with Baileys of course).

Lets move on to Cardigans. For the past decades cardigans were basically waist length, somewhat fitted sweaters. Today they’re that and so much more.

LONG cardigans from knee-lengths to floor-lengths are massive. Draped cardigans, printed, belted, hooded, pocketed, ALL is in, in the most daring and fun way possible. They probably are the best layering gimmick and style statement right now.

Pair your favorite cardigan with some neutral colored booties like these:

Long cardigans look best with fitted bottoms: skinny jeans or leggings and a slouchier top. Or they look amazing with mini skirts or dresses, shorts (or as Sarah and I call them, denim underwear).
