|Mariam wears our Grey Maxi Dress in Washington Square Park - Braids By @easymanexcristina|
BBG girl, yogi, and wanderluster Mariam Chubinidzhe has quite the following on Instagram, and we can see why. A student by day and fitness and wellness enthusiast by, well let's just say the rest of the time! We met Mariam at Pop Up Yoga NYC's Salute NYC event last month, an early morning party for NYC's fittest. So early, it started at 6AM! Now, that's dedication. It was a pleasure doing a photo shoot with Mariam and learning more about her - read on to see for yourself!
AM: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your typical day?
I’m Mariam! So it’s hard to really describe my typical day because I would say I’m not so typical!
I’m a senior at Hofstra University studying business law with management.
I’m the face behind @newyorkfittie! I started this Instagram account back in June 2015 to keep accountable while I started my fitness journey!
My typical day really depends on what point I am in the semester or if I’m out of school. I’m either on campus and playing student or I’m in the city doing my work at a local coffee shop and attending fitness classes. Balance.
AM: Tell us about this outfit! Which pieces did you pair your AM gear with, and why?
I’m wearing the beautiful Albemarle maxi dress paired with this trench coat I bought while I was in Germany a few months back and Sam Edelman booties! I knew the minute I saw the dress it’d be a perfect fall piece for my closet. I’m all about booties, coats and neutrals for fall.
AM: Where are 3 places you’d wear this outfit?
Dinner/Evening gatherings , if I changed the shorter booties definitely to school, or drinks with friends.
AM: What do you love most about your new AM piece?
I love how comfortable, simple and versatile this dress is. I can wear this with all neutrals, add a pop-color either on my jacket or my shoes, or wear it in the summer. It will definitely get multiple uses out of me and stay in my closet through all the seasons!
AM: How would you describe your style in two words?
AM: If you were deserted on an island, what one item would you want with you?
There are so many ways to answer this question, but I think I’ll go for my canon rebel T6i. I’m big into photography.
AM: Favorite sinful treat food?
Cheesecake, oh myyyyyyy! It’s my favorite.

AM: Favorite song to work out to?
I loveeee EDM, trap and hip hop. Right now definitely Purple Lamborghini by Skrillex & Rick Ross and all the old Kanye.

AM: Three things that are always in your gym bag?
Coconut Square Organics Bar, my headphones, my La Vanilla sport luxe deodorant!
|Mariam's favorite smoothie - photo courtesy @newyorkfittie|
AM: Favorite smoothie recipe?
Ohhhh half a square bar, half of Vanilla Drink Iconic protein shake and a banana. It’s definitely my quick go to! Another favorite I have is putting together a handful of spinach, some almond milk, a banana, almond butter and a square bar. Quick, delicious and nutritious!
