One cold brew and seven page essay later, I did it: I discovered the meaning behind community — or so, the textbook definiton anyway. 

However, what Google and PDF articles can't teach you is the community experience in its tangible form. When it comess to the realm of blogging, I believe in the mantra of camaraderie over competition. Why treat blogging as a cutthroat battle when you could be striking offline friendships through online beginnings? 

For me, community is not A) the name of a cult TV show I have yet to watch or B) Natalie Tran, YouTube's most underrated comedic gem (though I do love her), but rather C) The NYC Style Collective. In a city like New York, it is easy to disappear in the shuffle of Instagram influencers and industry icons, but being part of the collective fixes just that. From uptown to downtown, borough to borough, the NYC Style Collective unites bloggers from every corner of the concrete jungle — whether that be over brunches, happy hours, or both (by law, I cannot reject a spicy margarita or a glass of rosé). 

Here's what I wore to a recent brunch outing with the NYC Style Collective girls — a denim lace-up dress courtesy of Tobi with a striped long sleeve tee underneath, rounding out the last batch of spring-worthy looks before I dive into full-on summer ensembles. 

Soon: here's to good 'ol NYC humidity and the return of sandals and therefore, pedicures.

  1. YAS girl! Community power to the max. I absolutely love this look, Kelsey, but I've already told you this like a thousand times. I'm on the lookout for a cute denim dress now for the summer. I wish our community owned a yacht so we can take that outfit out onto the sea lol.
