Burgundy is a lovely shade to wear in the fall, and pairs so well with both browns and blacks, the basis of my autumn wardrobe. This coat that I’ve had for a year now was the perfect match to my Nars lip pigment in shade Warm Leatherette. This lip color is beautiful, and it lasts the whole day, with only a few touch ups after I drink or eat something. I love the Burgundy colors with the snake print, the two tones together look lovely.
For an autumn day in the Meatpacking District I was inspired by equestrian style. I love the preppy aesthetic that comes with it, and I’ve always wanted to go horseback riding in a full ensemble from Ralph Lauren, but this will have to due for now. I wore an old plaid blouse from Zara that’s still one of my favorites years later, with a vintage brown leather vest that my mother gave me.
Bon appétit, New York City. In the past few months I’ve tried quite a few more restaurants and bakeries in Manhattan, and why keep them a secret when I can share them with you all.
I’m starting to cherish my Sunday’s more and more. As it’s a time to relax, but also catch up with yourself and prepare for the week ahead. Life is crazy and during the weeks I catch myself just going throughout the day, rushing around and not really thinking or letting myself just be for a second. There’s nothing better than waking up on a Sunday morning, grabbing brunch with a friend, and catching up on all the things to get a jump start into the week.
As we near closer to Thanksgiving the foliage is at its peak here in New York City. The weather is quickly getting cooler, and here in the city the holiday markets have already begun.
Before I fully jump into the holiday festivities, I couldn’t skip out on sharing my photos from this past October in Central Park. I’ve been dreaming for years to get to experience a New York Autumn, and I’m so happy to say I finally have.
A purple and red combination is one of my all time favorites. The deep purple and bright red make for the best autumn combination when you’re not feeling the tans, browns, oranges, and greens.
I finally made my way to Ralph’s Coffee uptown on 888 Madison Avenue. The coffee shop is exquisite looking. The chandeliers, smell of coffee, and beautiful green colored floral walls make for a perfect weekend first stop before you start your day.
No season could ever top fall. After a hot summer, there’s nothing better than the change of seasons, feeling like there is a fresh start. The air is cool, and Autumn colors start to bloom.
It’s Autumn! My favorite season of all comes with crisp weather, deep toned colors, and the changing of leaves. The fashion that comes with it excites me so much. Layering, wearing gloves and cloches, knee high schools and Mary Janes. Plaid and dark florals; preppy style is my all-time favorite, and Autumn is the perfect time to wear it.
Purple candy stripes were the mood for this September look. I find September dressing can be one of the hardest months to dress for, along with March. The seasons are starting to change, you’re slowly drifting your wardrobe from bright prints and florals to more fall-like tones and prints.
This past Sunday my friends and I went to the Coach Originals Pop-Up store in New York City, and it was amazing! They had restored vintage bags, along with new inspired bags from the archives. The bags were beautiful and had all the fall feels with the use of fall tones like greens, burgundy’s, and deep yellows. Upstairs they had their new collection which I love, the new prints are great for fall.
My first six months of living in New York City were fabulous. I’m home for the summer, and I’m already missing the big city. I love being able to get up in the morning, put on a great outfit, walk out the door and just explore. Whether it’s dining at Sarabeth’s for brunch, reading in Central Park, or shopping in Soho, the city makes me so happy to even just walk around in. I love being surrounded by so many different and unique people. It inspires me to be better, and shouldn’t we all put ourselves in an environment that does this? I can’t wait to be back, and especially experience my first fall there. Fall is my favorite season, and it gets me all excited just thinking about being there for it.
New York City is one of the most populated places in the world, and it’s one of the most loneliest ones as well. It’s very easy to feel lonely although your surrounded by so many people constantly. For me, coming to the city and knowing this was comforting, because in a city there is so much to do by yourself compared to a small town.
Last nights Met Gala was anything but boring, from tulle to heads and chandeliers, I’m very happy with the turnout of celebrities in actual “camp” like fashion. I normally see a sea of basic dresses that aren’t related to the theme whatsoever, but these year proved us all wrong. Of course there are still attendees that didn’t have their best dressed moment, but they were some outfits that I just can’t get enough of.
I love to take a classic blazer that would normally be worn with suit pants and style it with dresses. I’m especially loving throwing on a blazer and wrapping a belt around my waist and wearing it like that. It’s a fun and different twist to the classic look.
I was looking to go for a more neutral toned look, and as I was rummaging through my clothes when I found this kimono and nude dress that looked really lovely together. I love when this happens, as I’m going through my clothes I find things next to each other that I end up loving worn together. If you’re an avid shopper like me, you know how easy it can be to forget about pieces in your closet because after you wear them a few times they get thrown to the back of the closet. I’m trying to get better at this, but we all do it!
Spring is for pretty dresses. Whether it be for a special occasion like a graduation or family gathering, or for brunch and exploring the city, a pretty lace dress is your spring go-to.
Brunch in New York City is not you’re average brunch, and you shouldn’t treat it that way either. There’s nothing better than sleeping in on a Saturday, waking up to it being sunny and 65, and stepping out on the streets to head to brunch at Sarabeth’s. With their five locations in NYC it’s a place everyone needs to experience at least once; but really, you’ll get hooked from the start.
Spring is slowly arriving in the city with flowers sprouting here and there in the parks and in flower pots. Although the weather goes back in forth from above fifty to below, I’ve been bringing out my spring pieces and experimenting with layering to make them more practical for cooler weather.

If you haven’t been through it you are inevitably are going to, and if you have you know the struggle and have very well learned your lesson. Now matter the size of the heel or wedge, not matter the price of the heel or wedge,
Always carry around a pair of flats when walking in heels in the city. Keep on Reading!
