Wow, it's been awhile since I've done an outfit post around here, I need to get those blogging muscles back in actions. Before I head back to school in due time, I have been a busy bee by working on a plethora of content to roll out over the next month or so. If I happen to go radio silent at all (which is 100% going to happen), odds are I'm piled up to my head in school work. Aha, oh help. In other news, I've developed quite a crush on cherries lately, both sartorially and gastronomically. This new Reál top is simply sealing the deal and kissing the lips on this love affair. 

Before you go, many of you ask what size I wear in Reál... I normally wear a medium in the tops/dresses, but then bring them to the tailor to get them taken in here and there. However, I'd recommend sizing up if you are in-between sizes.

Wearing: Réalisation Par blouse, Vintage Levi's, Chanel ballet flats, Brandy Melville denim jacket (in-store only)

Cherry Blossoms

Everyone always raves about the beautiful cherry blossoms in D.C. and I was itching to stop by them before we high-tailed it back home to New England. In my opinion, the cherry blossoms are more of supporting act to the Jefferson Memorial and an Instagram moment, so don't fret if you can make it across the river to see them. For me, I was more keen to visit the memorial as its been on my D.C. to-do list since my 8th-grade field trip. 

I'm compiling a D.C. travel guide, so keep your eyes peeled for when it hits the interwebs, Oh, and you might catch the foldover Vans in one picture

Penny Lane Called

Long time, no talk. I have finally found the time to sit down and write a spanking new post. And what better way to return back to the interweb with a classic and beloved Penny Lane moment? No one can resist one and let's face it, the 70s look will probably never go out of style... or so I hope to think. The over the top coat is vintage Akris borrowed from my mother's closet, along with the flared (!!) cashmere sweater from Tory Burch. Man, how I wished I shot this sweater, that was sadly disguised underneath a toasty layer of warmth. Alas, I have learnt to never risk frostbite in the name of fashion. This sweater though.... I've become infatuated with ruffles and flares lately, as they add a feminine and girly touch to my otherwise chill wardrobe. Who doesn't like to have a little flirty swish to their everyday look? I stand correct.

Signing off with a spin on Penny and a swish on my sleeve

Animal Instinct

It's been quite some time since I have done a proper outfit post in this neck of the woods.

There is no other way to put it, but life has been more hectic than ever and time is fleeting friends! Because of the heaps of school work and playing catch up from being sick, my free time is not spent sitting on my laptop, but out and about in the world. I'm fully aware of my adjusting schedule and I promise to not less this area of my life falter anymore than it has been. To keep you in the loop, content will be changing around here. I won't be posting as much- simply because I cannot keep up with my normal 3x a week- but the quality will skyrocket through the roof to make up for the lack of, well, my face. Instead of traditional blog posts, the preliminary plan is to produce more digital stories... think more in-depth writing, design, photography. For 2017, I want my blog to paint the best picture of who I am and what I believe in, so let's get going!!

Now, before you depart from my corner of the interweb, this outfit (and another one coming later...) are examples of how to work summer pieces into your winter sartorial playbook. When the cutoffs are less beachy and more structured, they totally are cut out for milder days when paired with funky toppers, boots, and of course, a thick turtleneck.

Back to Newport, RI

I went out east this weekend for a heavy dosage of fresh air and the ocean- along with a pretty bomb vegan french toast from Babette's. I'll say it to I'm blue in the face, but a change of scenery does wonders for the mind and soul. I am waiting for some film to be developed, but then a full visual diary will be coming soon. 

With junior year coming at me with full force, I am finally catching up on so many overdue posts, beginning with this look from Rhode Island last month. Yesterday, I wore a version of this outfit, simply switching out the black turtleneck for camel and adding some hoop earrings for some sass. And with the talk of holiday on the horizon, it remind me I need to start working on my holiday guide once again. If you would like to jumpstart your holiday spirit, we all need some of it, visit last year's holiday guide! I am in the brainstorming stages for this season's content, so if you would like to see anything specific, I'm all ears.

Central Park Daydream

27 (1).JPG

Animal print, loafers, and middle parts? It's a Love Story induced daydream sans the plethora of tears. It was also my exact inpsiration for this shoot with my new Aussie friend, Gabi. Not only is Gabi one of the sweetest souls I've ever met, but she is wickedly talented. So, I happen to geek out a little bit when I cross paths with people a la Gabi; plus it is the cherry on top when your ~creative~ visions align. Any who, post-snapping, we walked around the park and worked our way to Columbus Circle in search of food. With coffees and lunch in hand, we topped the afternoon with a picnic style lunch and great conversation. 

 

I like to think that days like these are the ones that I'm living most in the moment .As I like to say to my friends, the best moments in life are the ones that have no proof.
