if you’ve been following me from the very beginning, you may know i went to school at the george washington university in washington, dc and every year the unofficial start to the spring season was without a doubt the annual cherry blossom festival. all over dc cherry blossoms would bloom at the end of march-early april but there was no sight like seeing all of them bloom around the tidal basin - it is truly something out of a painting! since i started my blog back in 2015, i had been able to photograph once at the blossoms but then, of course, had to move to nyc after graduation. i no longer had the easy accessibility to my favorite (and very time-sensitive) trees that i once had but i still figured that i would hop on down whenever they were to peak.Read More
is it too late to say happy new year? haha!

dress: kate spade (old, last seen here)
clutch: zara (similar here)
earrings: simone rocha (similar here)

after two amazing but very cold trips (woodstock and kennebunkport) i was desperately in the market for some sun! so ashley, emily and i decided to head over to the cutest southern town that has been on my bucket list for as long as i can remember: savannah! while packing i knew i just needed an explosion of color and prints to really jump both feet into southern weather so this wrap skirt was one of the first pieces thrown into the suitcase. this winter has been never ending so it was incredibly refreshing to not have to wear my coat...even though i brought it just in case it got cold later in the evening! spoiler alert: it didn't. stay tuned for more posts from my trip to the south!Read More
happy first post of 2018!yeah, yeah, it's been two weeks since the new year but taking that time off has gotten me recharged and finally ready for this year! and what better way to get back into posting than featuring an accessory that i waited almost 3 months for: this stunning hand painted bag with the image of my logo! and of course a little "pret" monogram as the cherry on top of the sundae.Read More
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!Read More
pink is clearly my favorite color and you don't have to tell me twice to completely wear it from head to toe. even on the streets of new york when everyone features their best black clothing this time of year, you can always spot me strutting down the street in my favorite pink coat! at the moment, i have 6 pink coats in my collection (this being #1, #2, #3, #4, #5 and #6 will be in my post from austria and i'm not even counting this one) and i have to constantly remind myself when i go into store that i don't need another. ugh. but nonetheless, pink, in my eyes, is a neutral and will forever be incorporated into my outfits as frequently as possible. so be a ray of sunshine and wear your favorite color from head to toe! the whole world will be thankful for it!Read More
