spring to palm springs

after seemingly years of seeing the parker hotel in palm springs take over my instagram feed, i finally made it over to the picturesque hotel! during my last trip to california with my family. i somehow was able to convince them to make the 2 hour drive over to palm springs from la basically so i could take a couple instagram photos (but shhhh don’t tell them) - but it ended up being so much fun! i absolutely fell in love with the mid-century modern architecture and i felt like i was an old hollywood movie star on vacation haha!

fall tweed

while dana, andrea, and i were in vermont, we tried to take advantage of as much of the fall foliage as we could! while we ended up being just a week late for the peak of the colors, we couldn’t help but just drive around and get lost in the streets of stowe. honestly it seemed that every block was prettier than the next and we would immediately hop out and take some photos…and maybe play in the leaves a bit.

falling for vermont

after dana and i checked out of our hotel, we met up with andrea and made the switch over to the cutest airbnb just a few minutes from the downtown area. and holy crap was it the cutest! while it’s inside was decent, the reason we ended up choosing this location was because it was on a farm! like a real farm!! haha okay this city girl is going to calm down now! while i was behind the camera for a lot of the farm shots for dana and andrea, they were truly some of my favorites! loved this one i took for andrea and this one for dana!

the sisterhood of the traveling dress

with the surplus of bloggers and influencers now controlling newsfeeds everywhere, there will always be a standout few where i constantly draw inspiration from. one of those inspirations being none other than blair eadie (who coincidentally launched her collection at nordstrom in partnership with halogen yesterday!). at the beginning of august, while hiding from the sun in the hamptons with dana, blair popped up on my feed wearing this dress and dana and i instantly knew we both needed it! and i don’t think i need to mention how easy our decision was since the dress was $95. yup $95.

within seconds…okay fine, days…i started seeing this dress appear on my feed more and more and each time i fell more and more in love with it! it seemed that everyone from petites to plus were rocking this dress and putting their own spin it: essentially making this the sisterhood of the traveling dress!

dress: topshop (also love the yellow)
belt: dovima paris (also love the blue and the black)

the good old brooklyn bridge

whenever i'm on vacation, it's already a given that i will be waking up at 4:00am to be shooting by sunrise. yet i almost always refuse to do the same thing when i'm home in new york. so when i finally got my booty out of bed (and lydia's) before the crack of dawn for this shoot, i was pretty proud of myself! last time i braved the early wakeup call for the bridge was almost a year and a half ago but because it was during the winter, the sunrise wasn't at as quite a painful time. and sidebar, i still love that skirt i wore and cannot wait to wear it again for the holidays!

a roman holiday

after an absurd amount of procrastination, my favorite post from my tour of italy is here! of all of the 5:30am shoots, our morning at the colosseum will not compare to any other one. upon arrival, everything was going according to plan: our inspo photos in hand and my camera ready to go. ashley and i, of course, had to get the stereotypical blogger shot on the ledge and we continued taking photos around that area, but the magic didn't officially set in until we went down and around the historic roman landmark.

line it up

as evident from my last post, light linen dresses are my go-to pieces for this season. and when i was packing for my trip to rome, i realized i needed a one more dress that i could just throw on without thinking! i thankfully found this dress that is under $100 that was so comfy i nearly bought it in the other color too! i threw on my favorite prada hat and i was ready to eat all of the pasta my stomach could allow!

a monumental morning

it was another painful 5:30am call time but this time ashley and i were headed to the pantheon. when i was last in rome, i merely walked past this site as the masses of people were just too much. so thankfully we were able to dedicate one of the mornings to see the pantheon in all it's glory.

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.

a walk on park

springtime in new york is truly one of my favorite times of the year! know, aside from fall and christmas ;) but one ues tradition that i never fail to miss are the park avenue tulips! every year the city plants a different color to make the walk up and down park avenue a little more scenic and i'm so happy they chose red this year! naturally i decided to wear my favorite spring print in celebration of the turn of the season: gingham! be prepared to see a plethora of it again this year!

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!

talk birdie to me

for those of you who don't necessarily pay close attention to my instastories, you may not have known i am a huge golf in i literally play whenever i can and am even considering going to a golf camp for a weekend to master my game! but aside from that, i think we can all imagine how i reacted when i was given the opportunity to attend one of the practice rounds of the grand-daddy of all golf tournaments: the masters!

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!

white and black friday

as mentioned here, part of my reasoning behind my stop in paris was to re-do some of my photos and this was one location that could not be missed! the palais-royal is known for it's black and white art installation and even my first time here, i couldn't help but wear a black and white outfit! the moment i saw this dress, i immediately knew it was going to be coming with me to paris. in total i wore this dress 4 times on my trip! which is a world record for me. the reasoning? it is the comfiest dress i own! seriously! i feel like i am wearing pajamas!

twinkle toes

i think we all know i'm not one to shy away from a fabulous and fun pair of heels but there are days when my feet just need a little break! and thus, i bring out the statement flat. a girl's trusty sidekick for being comfy yet still sparkly for any occasion. while organizing my shoes recently, i stumbled back upon this pair of that i bought about 2/3 years ago and completely forgot about! thankfully this striped dress paired so perfectly with them and gave me an excuse to break them back out!

the hamptons // give me summer in the hamptons

i am anything but subtle when it comes to my love for the hamptons. i have been making the journey out east on my days off whenever i can for the last two years and i cannot believe another summer season is officially over! although, i have to admit, i am far from sad because i won't have to fight anyone for a seat on the train and it won't take me 5 hours to get home if i decide to least until next summer. but even with all of the hurdles to get out there during peak season, there is nothing like summer in the hamptons.

off duty

when living in such a big and busy city like new york, it is easy to get lost in the madness. since moving to the city over two years ago (wow, how time has flown!), i never quite mastered "big city living." coming to new york right after college, i never realized how difficult balancing work, blogging, being social, exercise, and my overall personal life would be and the sporadic schedule of my first post-college job didn't help. after a career switch about a year ago, i started to get back into a routine again. but of course, the holidays hit and my newborn routine quickly took a backseat. holidays in retail are anything but relaxing and the last thing i wanted to do when leaving work was talk to more people or even work out. so i found myself passing on events, soulcycle classes, and happy hours with friends just to get an extra hour of sleep. instead of bringing my lunch to work, i defaulted to ordering seamless from less than stellar options and would repeat the cycle when i got home at night. i assumed my schedule would reset itself when the holidays were over but, of course, it didn't and a few months ago, the need and desire for a change slapped me right across the face. hard.
