It’s Not Even My Birthday

HI EVERYONE. Okay, so I’m beyond sorry it’s probably been close to a month since I’ve legitimately posted on WearsByRis. All of my PuckerMob articles started getting picked up and published and it got A LITTLE crazy over here (to say the least). If you live under a rock and haven’t seen my snapchat, fb or insta (@wearsbyris & @mtmsky), don’t worry because there’s a whole new tab created above just for them. If you haven’t already, please go check them out🙂 Also, just a quick note on my PM articles before I dive into this WearByRis post: there are over 4k people who write for PuckerMob on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. In just 18 days, you all broke me into their top 50 writers. Like holy shit…Anyway, onto birthdays. September is a huge month of birthdays for me. My parents are a week apart, my roommate, one of my best friends…the list goes on and on. We’re only 8 days in but […]

NYC Restaurant Week, Summer 2016 (July 25 – August 19)

It’s one of the most wonderful times of the year! I say one of the most wonderful times, because this happens twice a year – once in the winter and once in the summer. It’s NYC Restaurant week, which means that it’s pretty much Christmas in July (and August). Honestly, there are only a few things in this world that can truly make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The first thing are puppies. The second thing is food. The third thing is Brett Eldredge’s voice. Actually, food and puppies are pretty much tied for first. Sorry Brett, you’re still coming in third (although now that you have Edgar, we might be able to arrange something to get you a little bit higher on the list. HMU sometime, K?). For those of you who don’t know (I’m so sorry you’ve been so sheltered up until now), NYCRW allows you to […]


What is Having it All?

What is having it all? Look at my Instagram page, look at my Facebook, look at my twitter. Look at my Pinterest, look at this blog, look through all of the texts on my phone. Look at the clothes I wear and the car I drive and the smile on my face. What do you see? Maybe you see a carefree and confident young girl, who has her life together: good family, good friends, a never-ending adventure of a life. And if you see that, then that’s fine. But that’s not having it all; that’s not […]

“It’s Lit”

So, I’ve been thinking…and I just realized not once have I ever done a blog post on one of my going-out outfits. You’ve all seen what I wear to work, and what I wear to events, but I can’t believe that I’ve neglected to include the most important outfit of them all: the uniform. I call it the uniform because I pretty much always wear some variation of this outfit when I go out. It’s a little more edgy and trendy because who wants to be preppy when they’re getting f’ed up? Let’s all save that for the office. The basics of the uniform include […]


I Might’ve Forgotten the Name of My Own Blog

I mean since my site is called WEARSbyris, I figured maybe (since it’s been months) it was time I put up an outfit or two for you guys. I have a couple in my arsenal and a couple more coming up that I think you’ll all be super exited about. I also decided against doing a 4th of July post just because I wasn’t sober for over 72 hours straight and took zero pictures of the weekend…I mean…because I’m still in love with last year’s outfit. But on a serious note, the outfit really didn’t change much. I also have a little spoiler alert for you guys: I’ve been collaborating with a very cool designer and I cannot wait for you all to meet him/them. I want to start with my gala dress, mainly because people were calling me Princess Belle the entire night and I’m just not ready to let go of that yet. I’m only kidding, but not really. So for this dress, I did something I never thought I’d […]





About WearsByRis:

I really love food, working out and puppies. I’m a little sweet, a little sassy and a lot smart-assy. I’m also probably the most unladylike young lady you’ll ever meet. I’m this strange hybrid between a country girl, a city trendsetter and a beach bum.

My take on what it’s like being in your 20’s? I don’t have a take…because I literally don’t know what’s going on 97% of the time. As soon as I think I know what’s going on, life is usually just like “lol, nope.” So instead, I’m just usually highly caffeinated and pretend as if I actually know what I’m doing.

I like to sing while I drive and I like beer and sports and drinking beer while watching sports.

For some reason, people think I’m super athletic and in shape but in reality I actually just like to eat ice cream for breakfast (go ahead and judge me). Also, in case you didn’t know, yes: ice cream is an essential food group.

I frequently prefer animals to humans. I consistently say hi to every dog I meet on the street and also consistently ignore their owners.

I’m the oldest of three children – my brother is the middle child and my sister is the youngest – and somehow I haven’t screwed up the whole “set a good example” thing for them yet. Or maybe I have. Mom? Dad? You want to take this one?

I’m a born and raised New Jersian (yes, I am most definitely proud of it) and no, IT DOESN’T SMELL. We aren’t called the garden state for no reason, people. Educate yourselves.

Also, I don’t do anything fun. I just blog about things and then you all read it. I still don’t know why.
