leather and lace

5 more days!! eek! and i couldn't be more obsessed with these red lace pants! don't worry, i also got them in black too! these pants are the perfect alternative to any dress/skirt for the holidays and are optimal for large meals because of the elastic waist in the back...bring on all the peppermint brownies! just add a cozy sweater and a moto jacket and you can out-style all of your relatives without looking like you're trying too hard.

embrace the lace

the final countdown to christmas has begun but where did the time go?? anyone else feel like they have 2 more weeks to prepare? this year, my holiday closet is prepped with tons of plaid so i figured i would start with a little pinch of lace. this super romantic dress is the perfect option when you don't want to scream christmas, but still festive enough that you're family won't claim you're the grinch. now i'm off to go buy everyone's christmas presents because i'm the master at procrastination! oops!

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.

poppy, please

as i mentioned in this post, i have been trying to make more of a conscious effort to re-wear pieces here on the blog. some of you may remember this dress from last christmas where i wore it to my favorite nyc holiday location! and trust me, i have been finding every excuse to wear it since! because the holidays are quickly approaching, i thought it was about time to bring this bad boy out of the closet to get myself in the holiday spirit while in paris. this time around, i had the cutest little sidekick that paired perfectly with the red lace - and it even has a crossbody strap to use when i'm running around town! i threw it on with my current favorite over the knee boots and it gave this dress just a pinch of a casual feel so that i could wear it all day long!

an american in paris

oh paris i missed you so much!! it had been two years since i was last in the city of lights and words cannot describe how eager i was to get back! for those of you who may not know, paris has a very special place in my heart. i first visited paris with my family when i was in middle school when i barely knew the phrase "je vourdrais un croissant" but that didn't stop me from instantly falling in love with it. i then made a stop here for two weeks with a youth travel group just before my sophomore year of high school and i think we can all guess where i decided to study abroad when i was a junior in college. paris is one of those places where i will always feel at home and this time i was ready to do it right (aka for instagram).

waving the white flag

is it too early in the season to wave my white flag? summer is here and mother nature is not being shy about it! the heat and humidity are in full swing and the only thing i can manage to put on in the morning are little (preferably white) dresses. when the humidity percentage is higher than my rent, i reach for dresses, like this one, that are easy, lightweight, and breathable! the open sleeve allows me to still be modest all while keeping me cool. the only thing this dress can't do is make the temperature go back down!

lace into spring

in my opinion, lace is one of the most elegant materials in all of fashion and it can be appropriate for any and all seasons! when this dress caught my eye, it was right before easter and i instantly ordered it in my size. unfortunately, it never arrived in time before i went out east for the holiday and was left to find another occasion to wear it. although i would like to say i wore this dress to a fabulous luncheon, i really paired it with a pair of ballet flats and a denim jacket and wore it to brunch! but that truly speaks to how versatile lace is and it will always be timeless!

pearly whites

"lizzie mcguire, you are an outfit repeater!!" does anyone else flash back to this scene from the lizzie mcguire movie every time they re-wear an outfit?? ...or is that just me. and i'm not going to lie, that after thinking of this quote, i started watching the full movie. thank god for netflix! but before i get too distracted, the main reason i'm re-wearing this temperly london dress (that i wore in charleston last summer) was because it was the perfect pair with this year's latest trend: pearls! after seeing these earrings on jenny from margo & me, i stalked the website for months before they were finally released and i was able to snag myself a pair. and it was then that i realized this would be the start of an extensive pearl collection.
