rain drop. laptop. 4 ways 1 device never stop stop. ok that was corny but that song is stuck in head 90% of the time, so I decided to put it to good use. back to bi’ness. I just got the hp spectre x360, and it’s a serious gamechanger. it’s the same weight as my ipad (aka light AF), but it has 4 modes – laptop, media, tent & tablet. all 4 pictured below. in addition to being lightweight & versatile, it’s also gorgeous! rose gold & gunmetal, I couldn’t have designed a better combo myself. I login with my face, draw with the universal pen, watch movies in bed and write blog posts on my couch. it fits seamlessly into my lifestyle. i’m in love i’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!

apologies for the blogging hiatus! a new job + less time is not the best recipe for a blogging gig. but it’s truly what makes me happy and gives me my creative outlet. it’s what allows me to meet new people and try new things. it’s what makes the big apple feel smaller & like home. so alas, i’m here, welcome. and i’m here for a great cause! #notsponsored but gifted upon begging my absolute favorite brand ever, six:02. this collection, called *thank you haters*, is all about girl power. in partnership with step up women’s network, they support programming that teaches girls to be strong, vocal leaders. f is for female – we’re here to get up, kick butt & be amazing. peep 2 items i’m wearing from the collection below. obsessed! actually just ordered another piece about 15 minutes ago that i absolutely had to have. shop all items from the collection at the end of this post
last weekend my gal pals & i got together for a festive & wine-filled holiday party! there was brie, spinach & artichoke dip, apple pie and meatballs! all the best things right? but what made the night even better was sharing stories about family traditions and our favorite holiday memories. some of us have known each other for a few months and others for a few years, but we all got a little closer after a glass of pinot noir and a story about christmas gifts gone wrong! moments like these are what make the holidays so special, and you’ll catch a few of them below.
as you probably already know, i’m obsessed with new york city and everything it has to offer. one of my favorite things about the city is that you can explore every single day and stumble upon something new… a new restaurant, an unfamiliar street, a unique view. on this day in soho we stumbled upon an amazing mural from tristan eaton. it took my breath away & the situation could not have been more perfect. coincidentally enough, my top is called “the brooklyn shirt” [my second favorite borough ;)]. & no, i don’t follow the white after labor day rule, not even a little bit.
strolling through the new york city blogger scene with my favorite fashionista, andrea from a slice o pi. we each have our own style & our own way of doing things but it is so much more fun to work together! we share style tips, photoshoots, pizza and coincidentally match all the time. i’m so thankful to have a supportive group of blogger gals in nyc. nothing like a good girl gang
sup pup. it’s officially bomber + boot season and i am so so ready. right now it’s all about military-inspired jackets and the perfect show-stopping boots. the best thing about this season’s trends is that they all mix and match! the olive greens, the rich blacks, the cozy burgundy’s. feeling in my element with cozy finds that step up any outfit.

one saturday morning, four blogger besties met in strawberry fields. the perfect picnic people met us at central park to deliver the cutest blue and white tote bag complete with a ribbon & including a picnic blanket. we found a nice shaded spot in strawberry fields – ready to brunch, relax, and enjoy each others company. now, hindsight is 20/20, so given the chance to do it again, we probably would not have chosen the hottest day of the year at that point [a cool 96°] for our outdoor meal. however, the perfect picnic made our experience so so so enjoyable. they provided all the necessities & then some! the food ranged from assorted baguettinis, north fork potato chips, & a cheese wedge… to fresh berries, seasonal salad, & bread… even organic lemonade, homemade chocolate chip cookies, & sea salt brownies. this was a feast fit for a king! [or 4 queens]

if there’s one thing i’ve learned about style since living in new york, it’s that a black ensemble always works. but now that summer is upon us, it’s all about bright whites. in my opinion, neutrals are always in season. and neutrals can always be paired together. my favorite way to wear monochrome is in different textures. i think a white sweater knit + a sequin woven jogger + a nude patent leather pump creates interest without distracting. this can be done in a variety of ways, but neutrals feel effortless. happy viewing, let me know what you think!
cutouts. black & white. gold. what’s not to love?! my thoughts exactly. i picked up this crop top & skirt set without even a second thought. it’s from my chic cousin Caroline [who I like to think of as my southern counterpart]’s online boutique. i wore this for holiday festivities, as it worked well layering under tights as is pictured below. but i look forward to also wearing it this spring. i think the crop top would look so fresh n so clean clean with a pair of black jeans, white jeans, or even a flared skirt. peep how i styled the outfit for cold weather weekends, as well as mix & match spring outfit inspo below!
