i can’t believe summer is technically over and that fall is right around the corner…i mean where has the time gone!? i have had some truly amazing experiences throughout this summer and my website has definitely taken a back seat as a result. posts have definitely been sporadic and delayed but i’m definitely trying to get better at planning these out!
throughout the past year, i’ve really tried to make a conscious effort to re-wear a lot of the pieces in my closet. as a self-diagnosed shopaholic, this is definitely harder than it sounds. whenever i have a dinner or event, my first instinct is to begin shopping for a shiny new outfit instead of shopping in my own closet. but while this challenge to myself is definitely daunting, there is one piece that I purchased last year that has made the task infinitely easier: this blazer from blair eadie’s collection with halogen last year.
two weekends ago, elle and i headed down to georgia and made our way to the barnsley resort for the annual blog societies conference, adorably known as tbscon. while i attended this conference back in 2016 with dana, this year’s conference was extra special because instead of being an attendee i was asked to be a speaker for one of the workshops. if you’re not familiar with the blog societies, it is a community for influencers that allows us to share resources, connections, and tools necessary to grow our blogs. it was founded by cathy of poor little it girl and jessica of my style vita and they host a conference every year that brings together girls (and guys!) and discuss all things blogging.
back in july, elle, dana, and i made our way to nantucket for a girl’s weekend! we had been talking about going to nantucket for well over a year and in january we finally booked the trip. now, after going to nantucket for four days, i can confirm it is the cutest place we have ever been and i’m officially and expert haha. it is a photographer and influencer dream as the fairly small island is full of beautiful homes and scenery and i truly can’t wait to go back!
after seemingly years of seeing the parker hotel in palm springs take over my instagram feed, i finally made it over to the picturesque hotel! during my last trip to california with my family. i somehow was able to convince them to make the 2 hour drive over to palm springs from la basically so i could take a couple instagram photos (but shhhh don’t tell them) - but it ended up being so much fun! i absolutely fell in love with the mid-century modern architecture and i felt like i was an old hollywood movie star on vacation haha!
