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 when i got back from my trip to rome, i found myself essentially drowning in unpublished content, which i’m aware is not necessarily the worst problem to have but i just couldn’t keep up with it all!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
sunglasses: dolce & gabbana

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
sunglasses: linda farrow

make a wish

after making my return to italy for the second time in six weeks, i was so excited to get to explore rome this time around! while this may not have been my first trip to rome (i spent thanksgiving here when i was studying abroad in paris!), it was my first trip to the city as a blogger...two totally different experiences! basically what it means to travel as a blogger is the leisurely mornings are replaced with 4am alarms to get to the most popular tourist destination before some people even come home from their evening. 

dress: asos
shoes: chanel (similar here and here)
clutch: tory burch
belt gucci
necklace: maje
bracelets: cartier
sunglasses: dolce & gabbana

come sail away

if you have been following along on my instastories, it has been quite the adventurous few weeks for me. i began my roughly two week long trip with a family wedding in puerto vallarta, mexico. but while i may have absolutely loved the outfit that i was going to wear to the ceremony, i knew i wanted to be sure to exclude any blogging or photography (aside from iphone photos of course) during those days with my family. mostly because my parents may be used to my blogging ridiculousness, but my extended family definitely isn't...and i didn't think this was the opportunity to expose them to that side of me haha! but about a month ago, i saw this beyond incredible dress on karen of where did u get that and needed it immediately knowing it would be perfect for this beachside wedding. knowing i wasn't going to be shooting this in mexico, i decided to get a jump start and use this dress as an excuse to do my favorite springtime activity: rowing boats in central park! and i'm especially thankful to lydia because just days earlier she witnessed someone fall in the lake trying to take a photo...needless to say she was scarred and i offered that we used my equipment this day!

dress: self portrait (also love this version here)
shoes: valentino
earrings: tory burch
bracelets: cartier

country road

my second nashville post is here and it's all about that historic and classic vibes this city has to offer! ashley and i woke up crazy early to beat the crowds to go to the iconic broadway in the heart of nashville. similar to the broadway in nyc, this street gets the most action from tourists who just want to have a good time. the street is packed with bars and restaurants and it's safe to say it has never seen a quiet night.

dress: weekend max mara (also love the red!)
shoes: madewell
belt: gucci
bracelets: cartier
earrings: annie costello
sunglasses: gucci

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.

patriotism to the max

there is no color combo more patriotic than red, white, and blue (obviously). so with the fourth of july right around the corner, i'm getting a head start on all of my patriotic apparel! having red hair, i have always defaulted to wearing something blue and white and a hint of red. this outfit was no exception to my all-american uniform. and of course, who can forget these fabulous tassel earrings to top it all off!? now i just can't wait for the fireworks!

give it a twirl

spring and dresses have become synonymous and when i am able to twirl in one of those spring dresses, they get immediate brownie points! this dress was just what i needed to truly get into the spring spirit and the "twirl" effect did not disappoint. although, i instantly fell in love with this dress, i seemed to struggle with how to accessorize it...more specifically, what shoes to wear! probably because i'm a little particular with the shoes worn with maxi dresses. when the hem is longer, there is no question that i wear a heel or wedge, but when the hem is just the right length for me, i freeze up.

monumental fail

the purpose of my quick trip back to washington, dc was to revisit one of my favorite sights: the cherry blossoms! as i mentioned here, the weather was not optimal for the cherry blossoms to bloom but that didn't mean that was going to stop me from waking up before the crack of dawn and heading down to the tidal basin. throughout the years, i've always admired the jefferson memorial simply due to how stunning it looks peeking through the cherry blossoms. so with the blossoms still frozen solid, i was sure to spend some time at the jefferson memorial too in an effort to make it not a total monumental fail.
