fashionably late

i know, i know…it’s no longer hydrangea season…but hey! better late than never! when i got back from my trip to rome, i found myself essentially drowning in unpublished content, which i’m aware is not necessarily the worst problem to have but i just couldn’t keep up with it all! so instead of powering through and editing all of the photos, i just let them sit there and procrastinated. i procrastinated so much that i am now posting an outfit from july…and would you believe me if i told you my last post was taken back in may??? oopsies.

dress: giambattista valli (also love the off-the-shoulder version)
shoes: raye (also have the black)
bag: mango
hat: miu miu
bracelets: cartier

extra, extra!

something that has always been true about myself is that i have always loved dressing up. i even think part of the reason that i worked at kate spade for so long (on and off for about 5 years!), was because dressing up and wearing a cocktail dress to work wasn't out of the ordinary - in fact, it was weird if you didn't! thankfully i still have this blog as an excuse to continue dressing as extra as i can be and feel validated when i waltz into a vineyard wearing a gingham ballgown.

dress: fame and partners
shoes: tabitha simmons
bag: zara
hat: jacquemus (similar here)
earrings: vintage chanel (stolen from dana)
bracelets: cartier

line it up

as evident from my last post, light linen dresses are my go-to pieces for this season. and when i was packing for my trip to rome, i realized i needed a one more dress that i could just throw on without thinking! i thankfully found this dress that is under $100 that was so comfy i nearly bought it in the other color too! i threw on my favorite prada hat and i was ready to eat all of the pasta my stomach could allow!

check mate

many times after ashley and i had our early morning shoots, we would head back to the hotel, stuff our faces with breakfast, change, and then go out for more photos...all before 8am. did i mention we were pro travelers? haha! but this morning we had intended on just shooting in piazza navona (seen in the last picture) but we kept getting distracted by the cutest little streets on the way and surrounding the piazza. and while it may always be nice to have some sort of plan while traveling, my favorite moments are the ones we improvise!

roses in rome

with a sharp contrast to the last post on prêt-à-provost where ashley and i leisurely went to the spanish steps during the middle of the day and there were swarms of people everywhere, this 5:30am call time gave us all the time to truly enjoy this tourist hotspot all to ourselves! well that was until the three guys who were still out from the night before left from the top of the steps...

dress: dolce & gabbana
bag: kate spade

rome-ing around

whenever i go to a city, especially as a blogger, it's inevitable that i have to hit up the big ticket stops (like here and here) but there is nothing i love more than just exploring some of the main touristy areas at our own leisure. ashley and i started off our morning around the ruins around palatine hill and while we may have gotten there relatively early at 9am, compared to our other early morning wake up calls, this was a welcomed change!

dress: fendi (love the red here and budget friendly version here and here)
shoes: fendi (love the black version too)
hat: prada (similar here and here)
bag: serpui marie (similar here)
earrings: tory burch (old)

a-door-able rome

when i was packing for my trip to rome, i knew i needed to bring some crazy comfortable pieces that i could walk around all day in...and eat copious amounts of pasta. i immediately grabbed this gal meets glam collection dress without hesitation. while i purchased it back when the gmg collection launched (as in right at 9am est on the first day haha!) and wore this dress countless times, i never actually photographed it! so i figured rome would be the perfect time for this dress to make it's debut on the blog. but for real, this dress feels like you're wearing pajamas and it's the greatest thing ever! i even convinced jenn that she needed it in her life too...it's that good!

dress: gal meets glam (also love the navy)

all in a day's work

visiting the amalfi coast was everything i wanted it to be and then some. so on our last day in paradise, ashley and i wanted to do a day trip to visit every remaining inch of the coast. ashley had arranged a car to pick us up from our hotel in sorrento at the crack of dawn to begin our drive along the famous "blue ribbon" road. earlier in the trip, during our stay in positano, the wind was so strong that the picturesque umbrellas on the beach had to stay closed...so as we were driving past positano, i may or may not have had the car pull over so we could hike down to get "the shot." but hey, do it for the instagram right!? after we got the shot and hiked back up the 10,000 steps (ashley really loved me at this point) we continued up the road and stopped at the most famous fruit stand where we discovered our driver and the fruit stand owner were great friends haha!

easy, breezy, positano

while in positano, i knew it was going to be hot. so i was incredibly thankful i packed this super lightweight off the shoulder dress that kept me cool for ashley's and my adventures for the day! but don't worry, the sunscreen was on hand at all times because...well duh!

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)

flippin' good vacation

with spring not wanting to make up its mind on whether to stay or to go, i escaped the cold by heading down to naples, florida with my family over the easter holiday! while i tried to keep this holiday weekend a real vacation (aka no blogging), the flowers had bloomed just in time for my arrival and they coincidentally matched my new dress so obviously i had to take my camera out juuuust once!

berry, berry, quite contrary

 my short stay in savannah was coming to an end but before i headed over to charleston, emily, ashley, and i were sure to get some last-minute exploring in! but in order to fuel up, we stopped at soho south café for some much needed brunch. unfortunately, the staff was incredibly rude to us about taking pictures so after we got the shots we needed, we just went straight to dunkin' donuts...because duh! i think we can safely say who the real winners were here.

orange is the new black

oh savannah! your picturesque streets were seemingly never-ending and i could have walked them for hours...and i basically did! we fueled up for our only full-day with the most incredible brunch at collins quarter before heading out on our adventures. and because ashley is no stranger to savannah (she lives just a couple hours away!), she knew all of the perfect spots and corners for me to imagine myself living there. but if it wasn't for the raging summer heat and humidity, i would have packed up and moved that instant! thankfully i had the comfiest dress to strut around town in and it kept me cool all day long! our day was filled wandering the streets of historic savannah and worked up an appetite for dinner at pacci right before our ghost tour that night! oh yeah, and speaking of ghost tour, i had no idea how haunted this town was! i'm just thankful we didn't go on one on our first night! but spoiler alert: i made it through my last spooky night before i bolted out of there the next day!

beret of sunshine

at the end of last year, i mentioned here how obsessed i have been lately with berets! they are the perfect way to add that little extra something to your outfit without putting too much effort into it. so i have been trying to incorporate more berets into my daily wardrobe and couldn't help but bring this pearl one back out! and i will mention that i have also recently purchased this and this and i am so excited to start wearing them! ...you know, after the whole 5-7 business day thing.

the hamptons // give me summer in the hamptons

i am anything but subtle when it comes to my love for the hamptons. i have been making the journey out east on my days off whenever i can for the last two years and i cannot believe another summer season is officially over! although, i have to admit, i am far from sad because i won't have to fight anyone for a seat on the train and it won't take me 5 hours to get home if i decide to drive...at least until next summer. but even with all of the hurdles to get out there during peak season, there is nothing like summer in the hamptons.
