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

getting cheeky with nashville

hello again! i know i have been incredibly sporadic on the site (and instagram as well) but i'm happy to announce that i've finally moved into my new apartment! i mentioned briefly here that i had had it with my old (and first) apartment here in nyc and needed an out fast. i quickly fell in love with a similar sized apartment but this time with the benefit of an elevator and a doorman. literal life changers! the past week as been so hectic with all of the suuuper fun moving responsibilities that my blog has taken a back seat. well, after my few days off, i'm finally able to sit down and share my posts from my trip to nashville with ashley!

blast from the past

i mean...vintage i really need to say more? the last time andrea was in charleston, she had such a fun shoot with a vintage convertible and i'm not afraid to say that i had a little fomo! so i persuaded andrea to do it all over again...but this time with yours truly. duh! we were so lucky to partner with low country valet to use "aida" for our shoot. we had so much fun pretending that it was our own and i had a hard time giving it back! with all of the original interior, i truly felt as if i had been transported back in time...and my vintage car dress definitely helped set the mood. with the perfect setting of charleston behind us, we couldn't have asked for a more picturesque scene!

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!

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.

check it out

i think it goes without saying that i adapted to southern living (and dressing) with ease and i knew that my suitcase wouldn't have been complete without a plethora of gingham! i purchased this gingham top months ago in anticipation of some warmer days and i was so excited to finally wear it in savannah! i loved pairing it with it's gingham mansur partner-in-crime and this stunning floral skirt to complete the perfect southern belle look! now if we could just tackle the heat and humidity in the south in the summer and then i would actually live there full-time!

orange is the new black

oh savannah! your picturesque streets were seemingly never-ending and i could have walked them for hours...and i basically did! we fueled up for our only full-day with the most incredible brunch at collins quarter before heading out on our adventures. and because ashley is no stranger to savannah (she lives just a couple hours away!), she knew all of the perfect spots and corners for me to imagine myself living there. but if it wasn't for the raging summer heat and humidity, i would have packed up and moved that instant! thankfully i had the comfiest dress to strut around town in and it kept me cool all day long! our day was filled wandering the streets of historic savannah and worked up an appetite for dinner at pacci right before our ghost tour that night! oh yeah, and speaking of ghost tour, i had no idea how haunted this town was! i'm just thankful we didn't go on one on our first night! but spoiler alert: i made it through my last spooky night before i bolted out of there the next day!

draw the line

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!
