rockin' around the christmas tree

as i briefly mentioned here, the days leading up to christmas, i was surprised with the news that the camp we were staying at in africa did not have wifi (like i was initially told). but i’m clearly not still bitter about it….nooooooo haha!

this was the one post i was extra excited to post this year because it is my annual lotte palace hotel christmas tree shoot! this is by far my (and every other blogger in new york’s) favorite christmas tree in the city. one reason why i love this the most is that the crowds are manageable and you are able to go right up to the tree - no barricades! oh, and of course i always have fake wrapped christmas gifts…duh!

so in any case, merry christmas! i hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday with your families!

pick a flower any flower

happy friday! i'm so happy you guys loved my instagrammer's guide to nashville a few days ago but there was very one important location that i felt deserved it's own post: amelia's flower truck of course! this charming flower store on wheels has everything an instagram obsessed girl could ask for. and because the location changes, ashley and i literally had to track it down...and by that i mean look on their website to see where it was that day haha.

pastel me more

hello charleston: the perfect spring getaway from the cold and dreary new york city...the sun was desperately needed! in contrast to the last time i was in charleston a few years ago in august, this time the head and humidity were far from extreme and i wasn't in a hurry to race home to nyc! as a result of the aggressive weather, i wasn't really a fan of any of my photos. so like my trip to paris, i was eager to get back to the charming city to redo the photos. for this time around, i took my time strolling the streets and taking in the scenery. everywhere i turned, there were colorful corners that belonged in a magazine and it was a plethora of pastel perfection!

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!

from kennebunkport, with love

happy valentine's day everyone!

what better way to celebrate one of my favorite holidays (mostly because everyone wears pink and red) than by sharing the details from my girl's getaway with dana to kennebunkport, maine! we were so honored to have been asked to help celebrate the most romantic of months in this charming town to kick off paint the town red! but before i get into all of the good stuff, it is crucial that i share the perfection that was my hotel: the grand hotel. located just before the bridge to what is considered kennebunkport, this quaint hotel in kennebunk was just what i needed for a weekend getaway! as soon as i checked in, i jumped into the frette robe that was hanging and had to stop myself from eating all of the chocolates that awaited me on the coffee table. after getting settled in my hotel, and dana in hers, we headed out to explore the town!

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!

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!

stars and stripes

stars are a huge trend for the fall and holiday seasons and nothing says "i'm an american" quite like adding a set of stripes into the mix! because this jumpsuit by itself was a little too scandalous for my liking (i touch on this a bit here), i loved layering this with a blouse underneath! and with the temperatures still a little bit on the warm side, i opted to throw on my go-to heeled sandals...but mostly because i'm not quite ready to put them away. oh and don't worry, the november collection at kate spade is all about navy with silver stars! get excited!!

prepping for fall

fall is officially here but that doesn't mean mother nature is quite caught up with the times as yesterday's temperatures were in the high 80s. ugh! so let the awkward transition period begin where all i want to wear are chunky sweaters as all of my summer dresses have been put away. sticking to darker hued dresses will be my go to option until the weather can finally cool down a bit. as soon as i saw this dress when it arrived into the store, i immediately snagged my size. i normally don't gravitate towards a sheath silhouette but seeing this print made my decision easy. and although this dress doesn't have sleeves, i knew i would be able to layer it with ease...you know, when it actually gets cold. it also comes with a matching jacket that would give me major blair waldorf vibes if they were worn together!

april flowers

april is here already!! that means we are one month closer to fall (hope you didn't think i was going to say summer). but until then, i be transitioning into spring with the best way i know how: layering! when i found this completely sheer dress with slits up to the waist, i knew i had to work a little bit of magic. i loved adding the all black ensemble underneath to make the stunning embellishments truly pop!

rain or shine

whenever i travel or have an outdoor event, i check the weather obsessively. as in i whip out the radar and become the female al roker. so before leaving for london, i knew rain was going to be inevitable...it was just a matter of when it was going to happen. the weather predictions seemed to change every 10 minutes so we left a lot of our planning up to fate. aside from the crazy winds our first day there (anyone remember the snap of dana's hat flying off!?), the weather seemed to be on our side. but there was one morning where we weren't so lucky.
