walk the dot

suits, recently, have been my favorite things to throw on (see here) so when i saw blair eadie’s collection had no shortage of matching suits, i couldn’t help myself but to buy one! …yeah yeah yeah okay two! and the best part about blair’s collection in collaboration with halogen, was the versatility and interchangeableness (is that even a word?) with one another so i felt so comfortable pairing this polka dotted blouse with the printed suit to complete the look!

suit: halgoen x atlantic-pacific (jacket and pants)
top: halgoen x atlantic-pacific
shoes: sam edelman

fall tweed

while dana, andrea, and i were in vermont, we tried to take advantage of as much of the fall foliage as we could! while we ended up being just a week late for the peak of the colors, we couldn’t help but just drive around and get lost in the streets of stowe. honestly it seemed that every block was prettier than the next and we would immediately hop out and take some photos…and maybe play in the leaves a bit.

coat: pam and gela (old, similar here)
dress: sacai

falling for vermont

after dana and i checked out of our hotel, we met up with andrea and made the switch over to the cutest airbnb just a few minutes from the downtown area. and holy crap was it the cutest! while it’s inside was decent, the reason we ended up choosing this location was because it was on a farm! like a real farm!! haha okay this city girl is going to calm down now! while i was behind the camera for a lot of the farm shots for dana and andrea, they were truly some of my favorites! loved this one i took for andrea and this one for dana!

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!

in the black

happy friday everyone! and more importantly, a happy black friday! i hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving yesterday but now the fun really begins: the countdown to chirstmas! while everyone is very excited to take advantage of holiday deals and deep discounts, i will spread the same message that i do every year. it’s a reminder to those who are choosing to do their shopping today in the stores, remember to be extra, extra, extra nice and patient to the sales associates and staff members. they have to work incredibly long and stressful hours today and who knows what time they had to get up this morning to get to work. and typically, the time retail workers get to spend with their families is cut short so just be aware of that before you think someone is moving a little slower than you would like (*cough looking at you new yorkers cough*).

coat: zara (old, similar here and here)
dress: asos (old, similar here and here)
boots: tory burch
bag: kate spade (old)
bracelets: cartier

apples to apples

a few weeks ago, dana, elle, and i made the easy one-hour drive from nyc to fishkill farms to partake in my favorite basic-girl fall activity: apple picking! but to be honest, as much as i love myself a good orchard, i was really there for the cider and doughnuts. i have no shame. so we made sure to pick up a box before adventuring into their massive orchards so we could snack on them along the way. that was probably our best decision of the day!

dress: zara (also love this and this)
sweater: j.crew (old)
shoes: chanel (similar here)
belt: gucci
bag: manu atelier (also love this color)

denim is the new black

happy wednesday everyone!

with my photography program in full swing and my shooting schedule being so busy, i have basically been living in jeans for the past 3 months with my hair almost always in a bun. although i will say i was in the darkroom last week in this tulle skirt and i had no complaints…but i made sure to wear the largest apron i could find haha it was truly a sight to see! aside from that exception though, comfort has been key for me these days. you will always find me now in comfy slides and oversized shirts!

but don’t worry too much though! with the holidays fast approaching, the cocktail dresses and midi skirts will be back before you know it!

coat: golden goose deluxe brand
top: kate spade (also love the navy)
jeans: madewell
shoes: fendi
bag: fendi

suit up

with fall officially in full swing, i can finally bring out all of my layers! and let me tell you it has seemed like forever since i have been able to strut around the city in a jacket or coat and not be uncomfortably hot. thankfully on one of my shoot days with lydia a few weeks ago it was cool enough to sport this matching set in soho…and i think you can tell how happy i was! and of course, it didn’t hurt that this suit was under $150!

suit: asos (jacket and pants)
top: tory burch (old, similar here and here)
shoes: dior (buy them used here)
bag: mark cross
headband: lele sadoughi

hallstatt // the storybook town

well the time has come...this is officially the last post from my european extravaganza! as a closet pinterest-er, i stumbled upon the most picturesque town of hallstatt when searching for locations in austria. sitting just an hour outside of salzburg, my mom and i decided to make the drive to see my pinterest board come to life. thankfully our sound of music tour guide from the day before gave us amazing pointers for this quaint little town.

salzburg // the hills are alive

well the time has finally come for me to share my favorite day of the entire trip...the sound of music tour! knowing we were going to be in austria, i could not leave the country without visiting the location of one of my favorite movies. so after our night at the ballet (and visiting one more museum for my mom in the morning), we hopped back in the car and drove the three and a half hours to salzburg listening to the sound of music the entire way. it was dark upon our arrival but we knew we were in for so much fun when we checked into the hotel sacher. even through the minimal lights, the view from our room was stunning! after ordering room service, we immediately went to bed because we had an early wakeup call.

beauty and the books

once upon a time, in the middle of nowhere austria, was a monastery that housed arguably the world's most beautiful library. one so stunning that it was even the inspiration for the library in beauty and the beast. after seeing a photo of this heavenly place on instagram (vaguely geo-tagged austria), i set out on the quest to track it down. after hours of research...okay dramatic but whatever...i finally found it: admont abbey. the town of admont was located right on the way to salzburg, austria (where we were heading next) and figured that we would stop there on the way for convenience. but thankfully i looked at the hours and would have been closed the day we were heading to salzburg (as well as the remainder of our trip). so we had to move to plan b. after our morning at the schönbrunn palace, we hopped in the car to make the 3 hour journey to admont. aka a total of 6 hours "to do it for the gram."

vienna // early bird

hello vienna! after an amazing week in paris with andrea, i was so excited to meet up with my mom in the capital of austria! when planning, we needed to pick a location that had both enough fall foliage for yours truly with a mix of history and art for my mom...and vienna seemed like the perfect decision. immediately when we got off of the plane, we checked into the palais coburg (we were very unimpressed but i will get into that some other time) and headed right to albertina museum to check out the raphael exhibit. my mom could have stayed there for hours (and she did) so i stopped in for a bit but then left her to go get a blowout - you know, priorities - because i knew what time i needed to wake up the next morning.

versailles // let them eat cake

next up on my paris re-do list was none other than my vacation home...err i mean the palace of versailles. the last time i visited my vacation home...ugh i did it again! the last time i visited versailles was during my first few days of studying abroad. i took the hour+ long train out with a few of my classmates and explored the palace. this instagram was even one of my favorites from the pre-blog days! this time around, andrea and i opted for the time efficient uber just a 30 minute ride outside of paris. we had originally planned to get there right as the gates opened with our pre-paid tickets in hand but our snooze buttons got the best of us! we headed out around 1:00pm and that was a mistake to say the least. we figured it would be crowded on the thursday we went but not as crowded as it actually was! our pre-paid tickets only saved us around 5-10 minutes but the waiting in line took around and hour and a half. and the photographer in me started to freak out about how much light we were actually going to have. but we definitely made it work!

meet me in paris

as many of you know, these past few weeks i have been traveling like a crazy person all over europe. and i literally mean crazy because i had about 10 bags with me. but well before i left for europe, i was sure to get into the parisian mindset as paris was going to be my first stop! adding the smallest of accessory of this café scene scarf to my outfits before i left made me feel forever chic. oh, and i can't forget my little champs-élysées charm! i seriously cannot wait to start sharing all of my adventures from europe!

going green

this season, i have been making more of a conscious effort to mix and match pieces that i already own and try to incorporate them into my current fall wardrobe. i absolutely loved wearing this coat last year and this dress back when i was in london...and of course i had to pair these pieces with my latest obsession: these green over the knee boots! when i say i have already worn these boots to death, i mean it. i'm strongly considering buying a second pair (in addition the the black pair i already purchased).

get your veuve on

i hopped off the plane at lax with my boater hat and a bottle of veuve in hand...and ready to attend the eighth annual veuve clicquot polo classic in los angeles! now many of you know that dana and i are regulars at the veuve polo classic in new york city so you can imagine our excitement when we made the decision to head to the west coast! we had no idea what to expect aside from the whole "champagne" thing haha but there were definitely some differences.
