well first, oopsies! i know it’s the 26th and you’re all wondering, “why the heck is she posting this holiday content now!?” that’s a great question readers, haha! for the last week i have been on an adventure in africa and because i was told there would be wifi, i did not plan out my pre-christmas posts. unfortunately, upon arrival to my safari, i was in for a rude wake-up call when there was not only no wifi, but not even cell service!Read More
a few weeks ago, dana, elle, and i made the easy one-hour drive from nyc to fishkill farms to partake in my favorite basic-girl fall activity: apple picking! but to be honest, as much as i love myself a good orchard, i was really there for the cider and doughnuts. i have no shame. so we made sure to pick up a box before adventuring into their massive orchards so we could snack on them along the way. that was probably our best decision of the day!Read More
happy wednesday everyone!
with my photography program in full swing and my shooting schedule being so busy, i have basically been living in jeans for the past 3 months with my hair almost always in a bun. although i will say i was in the darkroom last week in this tulle skirt and i had no complaints…but i made sure to wear the largest apron i could find haha it was truly a sight to see! aside from that exception though, comfort has been key for me these days. you will always find me now in comfy slides and oversized shirts!
but don’t worry too much though! with the holidays fast approaching, the cocktail dresses and midi skirts will be back before you know it!
coat: golden goose deluxe brand
top: kate spade (also love the navy)
rings: gorjana (#1 and #2), alex and ani
necklaces: cariter, shashi
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!Read More
over the past few months, i've done quite a bit of detective work...so i figured i should probably dress accordingly for my new self-appointed role in society. after the large nordstrom package that was stolen from my apartment lobby back in december, i was in contact with quite a few detectives in the 19th precinct here in nyc. and i have to say...they could have done better dressing the part. so i'm helping them out! haha! once i found this trench, everything else fell into place. all i'm missing is my magnifying glass and i'll be sure to catch the thief who stole my package (and the two others from a few weeks ago)!Read More
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!Read More
during our trip to vermont, andrea and i had the amazing opportunity to stay at the cutest hotel in the entire state: the woodstock inn. i had popped by this hotel for lunch when i was last in vermont and there was no doubt in my mind that i needed to come back. so nearly three years later, andrea was willing to journey the 5+ hour drive with me to get a better look at this cute little inn...this time as a guest!Read More
welcome to woodstock! i had been dying to come back to vermont after visiting it for the first time almost three years ago! my last trip was during the summer, and although it was absolutely stunning, i was itching to come back in the winter. snow covered mountains is one of my favorite sights...because sandy beaches are so 2005. andrea and i decided to make the nearly 5-hour trek up to woodstock to get in some snow time (outside of nyc). unfortunately, on the drive up, it was pouring rain and continued to rain throughout the afternoon and evening. the michigander in me knew this only meant one thing come morning: ice...and a lot of it. thankfully it was cold enough that the snow didn't leave us completely but it was all covered with a sheet of ice. weather challenges aside, that didn't stop up from exploring the town!Read More
thank god it's tuesday amirite!?? that is mostly because today is the start of my posts from my trip to vermont! before i get into the juicy travel content, i had to share one of my favorite outfits from the trip. and that was all because of this vintage inspired turtleneck that made me feel right at home in vermont. and thank goodness most of the snow from the sidewalks had been cleared so i was able to wear my favorite suede over the knee boots! stay tuned for my upcoming travel posts!Read More
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!Read More
i cannot believe christmas is finally here! it feels like this holiday season came and went in a flash! but i am so excited to finally share my last and favorite holiday outfit that i told you would have no shortage of plaid. now be sure to spend today with family and friends and have yourself a merry little christmas!Read More
this holiday season, plaid has been my go-to print and it was inevitable that i bring out my favorite shirt from last christmas! this year, i decided to pair this christmas classic with the skirt that i've already worn a million times (seen here and here) and added a few extra sparkles. now i can't wait to show you all the grand finale that is plaid perfection!Read More
as i mentioned yesterday, plaid is going to be my obsession this holiday season. and i mean it! first up on plaid line-up is this j.crew dress that is perfect for any and all holiday festivities! and we all know how much i love a good turtleneck...stay tuned for the continuation of the countdown to christmas!!Read More
now i know this post technically should be named "snow check" but i think we can all agree this umbrella was just too cute to pass on! this transition to spring has definitely taken us on a whirlwind ride including some crazy temperature changes. two weeks ago we had a blizzard and now it is 65 degrees with half the day raining and the other half sunny. feel free to make up your mind mother nature!Read More
