a walk on park

springtime in new york is truly one of my favorite times of the year! ...you know, aside from fall and christmas ;) but one ues tradition that i never fail to miss are the park avenue tulips! every year the city plants a different color to make the walk up and down park avenue a little more scenic and i'm so happy they chose red this year! naturally i decided to wear my favorite spring print in celebration of the turn of the season: gingham! be prepared to see a plethora of it again this year!

top: gap (old, similar here)
skirt: kate spade
belt: kate spade (old, similar here and here)
shoes: raye (also love the red)

net-a-prêt-à-sale : my picks from the net-a-porter sale!

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!

lilac to me

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!

dress: gal meets glam collection
shoes: stuart weitzman
bag: j.crew

come sail away

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!

dress: self portrait (also love this version here)
shoes: valentino
earrings: tory burch
bracelets: cartier
sunglasses: dolce and gabbana

sunset in nashville

when ashley and i decided on nashville as our next trip, we thought it would be a nice break from the cold nyc weather (well at least for me because ashley lives in georgia!) and this would be a good opportunity to shoot some spring looks. however, we were shocked to see the weather forecast as the high 30s/low 40s for our entire trip and the weather channel even predicted snow for that saturday. uhh i'm sorry, what!? but with all of our spring looks packed, we had to make do! we originally had planned on stopping by the john seigenthaler pedestrian bridge (shown here) first thing in the morning after our arrival for a sunrise shoot but strong winds and freezing temperatures weren't exactly ideal. so we zipped off to a dunkin donuts to warm up and readjusted our schedule to stop at the bridge for the (cloudy) sunset.

on the case

over the past few months, i've done quite a bit of detective work...so i figured i should probably dress accordingly for my new self-appointed role in society. after the large nordstrom package that was stolen from my apartment lobby back in december, i was in contact with quite a few detectives in the 19th precinct here in nyc. and i have to say...they could have done better dressing the part. so i'm helping them out! haha! once i found this trench, everything else fell into place. all i'm missing is my magnifying glass and i'll be sure to catch the thief who stole my package (and the two others from a few weeks ago)!

faux real

faux fur is for real this season! with the temperatures hovering over freezing, i knew i couldn't beat mother nature for spring to get here so i'm compromising and strutting around town with this faux fur coat in my favorite color! perfect for the days when i want it to be spring, but it's still frigid. paring this coat with a little sequined blouse and purple pants (because duh) and i was out the door!

broadway baby

for those of you who may not know, i'm kind of a broadway nerd. i even went to a broadway camp here in nyc when i was in middle school...i know...it's okay to be jealous. but ever since i realized my fate of not being the best singer, i knew i would have to settle for only being an audience member. but i'm definitely okay with that! most recently i've seen mean girls on broadway, dear evan hansen (twice), hello dolly, anastasia, and then when i got the invitation to attend frozen on broadway a few weeks ago, i couldn't say no! as much as i wanted to channel my inner elsa, i decided to dress away from the theme of the musical and opted for a more sophisticated ensemble. i had so much fun feeling like an old hollywood star in this trumpeted skirt and completed the look with my favorite grandma bag...and it was so comfortable for the evening!

monday blues

okay well that was a much longer break from blogging than i anticipated it being! it's been three weeks but i'm finally back with my last post from charleston! but i also wanted to come on here to share why i've been a little mia not only here on the blog but also why i've been minimal on my instagram. the short answer? life has been crazy! but the long answer is definitely a little more complex. not only am i planning a million trips at the moment but i finally hit a breaking point with my starter 5th-floor walk-up apartment in nyc. some of you who follow me on instagram may remember i had a fairly large nordstrom package stolen from my building's entrance in december. i was shocked as i had never had any issues prior to this. while nordstrom refused to do anything, american express saved the day and reimbursed me for the full amount! it's safe to say i will be an amex member for life now!

blast from the past

i mean...vintage cars...do i really need to say more? the last time andrea was in charleston, she had such a fun shoot with a vintage convertible and i'm not afraid to say that i had a little fomo! so i persuaded andrea to do it all over again...but this time with yours truly. duh! we were so lucky to partner with low country valet to use "aida" for our shoot. we had so much fun pretending that it was our own and i had a hard time giving it back! with all of the original interior, i truly felt as if i had been transported back in time...and my vintage car dress definitely helped set the mood. with the perfect setting of charleston behind us, we couldn't have asked for a more picturesque scene!

pink-a-boo

i think we all know i'm a sucker for pink. so when i found out i was going to be heading back to charleston, i was determined to hunt down the famous pink door! with the aid of southern expert ashley, i tracked town the door in seconds! located at 126 tradd street just south of broad, it did not disappoint! and knowing i was going to be bringing my pink bike this door served as the perfect location to compliment my ride and all of my favorite pink pieces!

i think it goes without saying that i adapted to southern living (and dressing) with ease and i knew that my suitcase wouldn't have been complete without a plethora of gingham! i purchased this gingham top months ago in anticipation of some warmer days and i was so excited to finally wear it in savannah! i loved pairing it with it's gingham mansur partner-in-crime and this stunning floral skirt to complete the perfect southern belle look! now if we could just tackle the heat and humidity in the south in the summer and then i would actually live there full-time!

draw the line

after two amazing but very cold trips (woodstock and kennebunkport) i was desperately in the market for some sun! so ashley, emily and i decided to head over to the cutest southern town that has been on my bucket list for as long as i can remember: savannah! while packing i knew i just needed an explosion of color and prints to really jump both feet into southern weather so this wrap skirt was one of the first pieces thrown into the suitcase. this winter has been never ending so it was incredibly refreshing to not have to wear my coat...even though i brought it just in case it got cold later in the evening! spoiler alert: it didn't. stay tuned for more posts from my trip to the south!

i present to you...

after participating in new york's fashion week for a few seasons now, the glitz, glamour, and allure have worn off just slightly. but that doesn't mean i don't get giddy seeing new and fabulous designs come down the runway! this season, i had the amazing opportunity to attend the kate spade presentation and it's safe to say having worked for the company on and off since 2012 (and only recently leaving in october) it was literally a dream come true! i had never attended the presentation before and was like a kid in a candy store walking in. but attending my first kate spade presentation, i couldn't show up in just anything! i originally had planned on wearing this dress but after trying it on, it was just a little too much for me. so i opted for this fun shirtdress that was beyond comfortable! which came in handy because in addition to being in front of the camera for part of the day, i had to wear it behind the camera as well!

stealing from the boys

happy tuesday! today i'm sharing my favorite outfit from my trip to kennebunkport with dana that has a little twist to it; this button down, layered underneath the cutest corduroy pinafore, is actually from j.crew mens! for this trip, i wanted a more relaxed feel so that's why i beelined right to the men's section. not only do they have just as cute of prints (if not the same) in the perfect oversized fit with out of control comfy fabric, but the price is so much less expensive! especially when you look at the "boyfriend" shirt from the women's section compared to just getting a boyfriend shirt from the men's section (minus the boyfriend). it's really a win/win if you ask me!

all over overalls

now you couldn't think i could leave vermont without sharing the outfit that i wore overalls in could you!? i was definitely stepping outside of my comfort zone here but i figured it was about time i tried out the trend. i was nervous to actually wear them at first but once i found this pair and saw how comfy they were, i am completely on board with this trend now! and better yet, they are under $40! i decided to layer them with this fair isle sweater for the perfect winter look! now i can't wait to style these again for a more city appropriate version! hope everyone has an amazing monday!
