i don't think it comes as a surprise that net-a-porter is one of my favorite retailers...as in i'm pretty sure almost half of my wardrobe has come from the site! if you have never shopped from them, they have an amazing selection of styles and sizes with efficient shipping. and if you live in nyc, they can deliver to you same day (which has come to the rescue before countless trips...like the veuve polo classic in la)!! so today is an extra exiting day because their best sale of the year has gone live!
spring is here! so bring on all of the flowy dresses and handbags filled with flowers! this is truly one of my favorite times of the year because the flowers and trees are starting to come back to life and the unbearable heat hasn't quite hit yet. when julia engel released her stunning line of dresses, i knew i was going to be obsessed from the start! from her first month's collection, i purchased six dresses...yes six! while my intention was to overbuy to scope out the collection and then later return, i ended up keeping almost all of them. but out of all the dresses, this one had to have been my favorite. aside from the color, the fabric felt the highest quality of the ones i ordered and i just felt like maria von trapp in it! so overall it was a win! i cannot wait to see what she keeps putting out every month!
hot off the heels from my family wedding in puerto vallarta, my parents and i took a quick trip to mexico city. my parents had time to stay the entire weekend but my time was limited to a mere 18 hours because i had to hop on a plane first thing in morning for my next adventure. needless to say the moment we landed in mexico city, it was crunch time!
if you have been following along on my instastories, it has been quite the adventurous few weeks for me. i began my roughly two week long trip with a family wedding in puerto vallarta, mexico. but while i may have absolutely loved the outfit that i was going to wear to the ceremony, i knew i wanted to be sure to exclude any blogging or photography (aside from iphone photos of course) during those days with my family. mostly because my parents may be used to my blogging ridiculousness, but my extended family definitely isn't...and i didn't think this was the opportunity to expose them to that side of me haha! but about a month ago, i saw this beyond incredible dress on karen of where did u get that and needed it immediately knowing it would be perfect for this beachside wedding. knowing i wasn't going to be shooting this in mexico, i decided to get a jump start and use this dress as an excuse to do my favorite springtime activity: rowing boats in central park! and i'm especially thankful to lydia because just days earlier she witnessed someone fall in the lake trying to take a photo...needless to say she was scarred and i offered that we used my equipment this day!
