the lost outfits

it’s been a while since i’ve posted on the blog. while part of the reason is because i really haven’t had much to say, but it’s really mostly due to the fact that i have been really discouraged about losing my hard drive. i know i don’t want to belabor the point anymore but losing 40,000 photos of not only client and personal photos but my final project for my photography program really hurt…like really hurt. i felt like i lost an arm and it just took me a while to really come to terms with the fact that it’s never going to come back…i know, dramatic but whatever…

the discouraging side of having a "small" instagram following

in today’s social media age, people are seemingly defined by their follower count. as of this week, i have around 25k followers and while that may seem like a lot to some people, my following pales in comparison to my peers…especially those in nyc. to be honest, it gets incredibly frustrating and often discouraging regardless of how hard i try not to play the comparison game. the loop giveaways are running rampant and there doesn’t seem to be any slowing down of people trying to take shortcuts. i was even told once that it was “cute” how i’ve kept my small following simply because i didn’t participate in that rubbish (sorry i’ve been watching mary poppins returns and now i think i’m british). i had a “wait, what?!?” moment haha! but what real impact does this have on me? it really comes down to brands and partnerships.

stowe away

last month, dana and i decided we needed a heavy dose of fall foliage so we packed up the car and made the five and a half hour drive to the land of foliage: vermont! while i am no stranger to vermont, as i’ve been a few times and most recently to woodstock with andrea last winter, this was my first time to stowe. dana and i had the honor of staying at field guide for a night, which was one of the cutest hotels in the area!

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!

wandering in woodstock

welcome to woodstock! i had been dying to come back to vermont after visiting it for the first time almost three years ago! my last trip was during the summer, and although it was absolutely stunning, i was itching to come back in the winter. snow covered mountains is one of my favorite sights...because sandy beaches are so 2005. andrea and i decided to make the nearly 5-hour trek up to woodstock to get in some snow time (outside of nyc). unfortunately, on the drive up, it was pouring rain and continued to rain throughout the afternoon and evening. the michigander in me knew this only meant one thing come morning: ice...and a lot of it. thankfully it was cold enough that the snow didn't leave us completely but it was all covered with a sheet of ice. weather challenges aside, that didn't stop up from exploring the town!

safety net

happy monday everyone! as many of you know i was traveling all last week adventuring though new england: stopping at both woodstock, vermont and kennebunkport, maine! i seriously cannot wait to share all of the details and photos with you all but i first needed to share this outfit from just before my trip! it's a slight departure from my traditional style but it was so fun to take a baby step outside of my comfort zone. i have worn this dress before (and similarly layered) but added a twist this time with the plaid jacket, hiker booties, and a little fishnet sock! i had so much fun wearing this outfit but i may need to go back to my safety net of fit and flare cocktail dresses before i try something edgy again!

honey, i'm home

as much as i love traveling, there is nothing quite like coming home. after taking one of the longest trips i've ever been on to paris, vienna, salzburg, and hallstatt (with a few days in detroit), i was so relieved to finally be able to sleep in my own bed. all in all, i was gone for a total of 3 weeks and 3 days and carried 3 rolling bags in addition to my camera equipment all across europe. i was exhausted! but nothing can ever compare to coming home to new york. sometimes i get caught up in the craziness of the city and forget how truly wonderful this place is! so it takes a little vacation to remember that new york is my true love. i am beyond thankful that i get to live in such a creatively simulating and energetic city that is full of countless opportunities. so every time i wear this sweatshirt, it serves as a little reminder of the greatest place on earth! ...but i'm not biased.

fall into place (des vosges)

happy monday everyone! i am so excited to continue sharing my posts and outfits from paris. during my trip, i was so thankful i packed this max mara dress because it was so comfortable to wear right when i landed! ...and because it isn't as acceptable to wear your pajamas in public like it is in the us. and if you have been following me on instagram/instastories, you know that i have been living in these boots since i bought them! seriously one of my best purchases of the year! stay tuned for more of my parisian adventures!
