We’re back for the second interview of our new Guest Blogger Series: Travel in Style – where you can expect top tips for travel from NYC’s most stylish bloggers! This week, we caught up with the ultra stylish Iyesha Cunningham of Salting Light. A well-travelled, trend savvy photographer, Cunningham dabbles in the fashion marketing world while presenting her photography on her own blog in her spare time. Get ready for a New York summer with her top style tips below.
SG: Hi, tell us a little bit about Salting Light?
SL: Salting light is the name of my blog I started right before I started doing some travelling. I used it to show my adventures and post some other projects I am working on. I got the name from this bible verse I really love in Matthew 5:13 which talks about us being the salt and light of the earth, and I love the concept of lighting in my photography so it all meshed together.
SG: What are your Top 5 recommended ‘must have pieces’ right now, for fashionistas preparing to pack for their NYC trip?
SL: I’d say some classic white sneakers, an oversized t-shirt dress, boyfriend jeans, classic denim jacket, and a good tote or leather bag to get you from day to night.
SG: Biggest trend this season?
SL: I am a sucker for all white and overalls.
SG: What is your secret NYC hotspot?
SL: haha. Secret hotspot? I’d say a best kept secret in New York is Inwood in the Fort Tryon Park and Cloisters area, even the path under the George Washington bridge by the lighthouse. It’s such an escape from the NYC madness but a bit out of the way.
