I Don’t Need Nobody to Tell Me Who To Be

Ready to sting, I am young and free



Moving is stressful, hellish. It takes way longer than expected. You find some things, lose some others. While I’ve apparently lost my favorite fall jeans (the perfect aubergine hue), I’ve found a box of vintage quilted bags I used in college, including this one in my absolutely favorite color in the world. Also fun about moving? Exploring the new ‘hood. These photos were shot by the Monroe St Market, a series of small businesses, artist shops, and restaurants. How amazing are the giant strung lights!? Z and I have been absolutely LOVING going out to eat around here, and with a new spot opening up each month there’s always more to try!

Monday Morning Inspiration

Words of wisdom. #etsy

Go on, go out there and make some progress towards a future goal! Whether that be financially putting money away or practicing your craft of cross stitch or painting, or even investing in some designer pumps (hey, that’s probably what I’ll be doing!). Just do something with the thought of future you in mind.

I Want to Make You Feel How I feel When Listening To Love Songs

I’m trying hard to make you love me
but I don’t wanna try too hard
And I’m trying hard to make it lively but I’m here now

A quick little outfit post; Work has been crazy, trying to keep up with NYFW has been nuts, and preparing for some big projects is more on my plate. Oh, and the omnipresent home updates and planning to get a dog. Coming home at the end of a long day to a glass of wine and my perfect man makes it all worth it; the literal four walls holding up our abode that we’ve been working so hard to make our nest.

Those four walls now are the only place where I can breathe out
Those four walls now are home
Those three words now are the only thing that can save me
Those three words now are home

Designer Spotlight: American Retro

While everyone is on that Fashion Week grind I’m over here, cozy in my home office and out and about in my styling day job. Skipping out on NYFW is becoming more and more okay with me, because as I tweeted, “The only real reason to attend #nyfw anymore is to network.” but I’ll catch that bus the next time around.
But hey, just because I’m not Front Row’ing it, doesn’t mean I’m out of the designer previews! On my last visit to NYC I checked out American Retro. Contradictory to it’s name-sake, this edgy Parisian brand is full of high quality, modern, aesthetically appealing design. Playing off the Effortless Cool menage of blending that our nation’s style has become known for, this collection boasts plenty of sequins to play off of soft ribbed knits and solid cotton. These Parisians have mastered the current American trends of pastel hues, fringed leather and suede, and a dash of glitter in a way that makes you want to see it on all our favorite style stars. From urban mused bold prints to southern-charming tassels and cacti, there’s something for everyone to mix and mash with denim basics and any sort of jewelry, as we ought to do.




Seriously, I can just picture Rihanna and Cara Delevigne in anything and everything from this collection. Personally I’m into the mermaid-colored pink sequins and the gold ribbed midi pencil skirt; c’est chic! The gingham pieces? SO Blake Lively. the Suede fringed moto jacket I can see on blogging queen Chiara Ferragni…the list goes on and on, but this collection and brand is one to watch.

Be sure to check out more from the American Retro FALL collection here !

love balance

It may seem cliche, but all those shitty relationships that you try to make work aren’t working, and for a reason. When the right one comes into your life you’re going to see the world through new lenses. I hope you find that somebody who keeps you calm when needed, but can go crazy with you too.

Love More and Worry Less





I’m ready to transition into fall. With Sheer lengthy layers, black denim, and leathered booties, the crisp season is underway. Shot during the last days of the beach season in Pine Point, ME by Z, these shots encapsulate breezy September. While I’m already missing the sand beneath my feet, I’m ready to get fall underway and am excited for the Halloween season! Give me all the pumpkin flavors!

No Point To Making Plans, The Wild Life is Human Nature

I want to get a move underway
I’m putting my thought in
I want to give all my worries away

Happy Labor Day! What a wonderful end of summer it has been; I’ve been at my parents’ vacation home in Maine, soaking up the rays and enjoying quality time with my family. While I”m as excited as any #fashiongirl for my Pumpkin Spice Soy Latte, I’m still hanging onto sunny days and maxi dresses. I wish it could be summer forever, but this one last fling will do until next year. But, alas, with summer ending and my beach trips commencing, it’s time to get focused. I’m ready to get down to business in planning some big things for the next few years of my life; watch out dreams, I’m coming for you full force!
Also, how amazing is my necklace!? It was a gift from jewelry designer, ThreeJaneNY to celebrate Z and I’s first home; a timeless piece that I will cherish forever. Her map necklaces (and manly cuff links!) are the perfect keepsake gift for anyone, whether it’s to remember a childhood home or to commemorate an abode of love, like mine.
