This midi dress is one of my favorites in my closet. Not only is this length flattering and perfect to feel comfortable in, I love the length of the sleeves as well. The neckline hits right at the perfect point on my neck, and the matching printed belt is a plus. It’s not attached to the dress, so you can wear it with other pieces in your closet as well! I absolutely love all the color this dress has, it makes so fun to accessorize!
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.
The Met Gala is the most extravagant event on the fashion calendar every year. To get invited to this event is a huge honor, and quite hard. But, once you are invited to the event it doesn’t stop there. What you wear to the Met Gala is the most important, because if it’s magnificent you’ll be the talk of the year, and we can say the same if you’re not. Every year there tends to be a few that gravitate towards the mermaid skin tight dresses, but we can’t focus on the negative when we have guests showing up in extravagant gowns and headpieces. The guests that dress to the theme truly take the event to another level, and I enjoy looking at the outfits every year.
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.
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!
As I wear dresses almost everyday, I have quite a collection of minis and midis, but one of my all-time favorites to wear in the spring/summer are maxi dresses. I think they are so flattering and can be easily transitioned from day to night. Maxi’s with slits are super cute and it allows for you to breathe in the dress, but also show off your pretty shoes as well. They are a classic, beautiful piece to wear for any occasion. Keep on Reading!
I’ve boughten from Gal Meets Glam ever since they first launched in April of last year. They have the best dresses for the girls that love classy, feminine dresses that are vintage with a modern touch. This dress from the March launch is perfect for spring and summer. Keep on Reading!
As March comes to an end and spring is right around the corner, I tend to get most creative with my looks since at this point I am tired of my winter wardrobe. These stripe pants are a super fun way to make any look unique. I could have worn simple black pants or jeans, but the look is much more fun to wear and different with these stripe pants. Keep on Reading!
There’s no denying that Princess Diana is one of the greatest style icons. Her looks were always so glamorous and chic, and they spoke volumes. She was always dressed appropriately and dressed to the nines. I wouldn’t mind if her hat collection just magically appeared in my closet over night. Keep on Reading!
I’ve always loved the Kate Spade brand. Especially with their newest collection for Spring/Summer launching in the stores just about two weeks ago, being in NYC I had to go check it out. I wrote about the new collection and campaign here. Everything is girly & floral & whimsical, and I couldn’t resist getting this sweater vest. Keep on Reading!
I was going through my closet today looking for something new to share but I didn’t really love any of the looks that I was putting together; which sparked some inspiration. You may not see it on Instagram very often, but I do re-wear pieces ALL the time. I don’t like sharing pieces that I can’t find online all the time because I like to share things that people can buy if they love. I know the frustration of seeing a piece that you love on Instagram or a blog, but can’t get because it’s sold out.
But, even though you can’t buy the exact piece that I’m wearing in this look, you can find inspiration for a look that you can recreate with your own wardrobe! I’m always going through other influencers blogs or Instagrams looking for inspiration for a new outfit whether it be the colors or style. Finding inspiration and creating a new version that’s more you is so fun.
Today’s color combo is the classic black and white, with mixes of neutral colors. I love adding belts to a-line dresses because it creates a more defined waistline and makes for a feminine look.

It’s been a crazy week! I had my senior prom, high school graduation, 18th birthday, and I just finally got my license today!
I’ve been waiting for my high school graduation for a very long time, it was such a fun day and I’m now finally onto bigger and better things. High school wasn’t the greatest time for me, but I’m so grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned now that it’s over. Now it’s time to get ready for college in the fall!
The second I saw this Gal Meets Glam dress months ago when it was previewed before the collection dropped I knew this was the dress I wanted for graduation. So, when the collection dropped I instantly bought this dress, named Lillian, and I love it so much. Not only does it come from my favorite blogger, it is great quality and I’ll definitely be purchasing more of her dresses! It also came in record breaking time, I ordered it on a Friday and I got it the following Monday; I wasn’t expecting it to come so soon so it was a great surprise. I love the neckline because it’s so flattering, and the tie bow waist is so cute and girly!
My earrings I found at TJ Maxx on sale, I knew they would be a perfect match for this dress when I saw them! My wedges are from a couple years ago; I actually bought other shoes to wear with this dress but I got super bad blisters on the back of my ankles from my prom shoes so I couldn’t wear them 🙁 These wedges match just as good and I love the wooden wedge look.
Down below are some photos from graduation, but before that I wanted to quickly thank some important people in my life who I wouldn’t have been able to survive high school without. My best friend Megan has been the only friend to stick by my side and I can’t even explain how grateful I am for her and our friendship. My Meme and Pepe always were there for me and always gave me rides whenever I needed them, and I’m extremely grateful for them. My brother and sister have stood by me through all of it, and have accepted me for the person I am from the beginning; which is something hard to find in today’s judgmental world. Finally, my mom and dad have given me the best guidance and have stuck by my side all throughout these crazy past four years. My mom is my best friend and biggest supporter in life and I truly wouldn’t be able to live without her. During high school I can’t say it was easy having different interests than other people, but my best advice is to always stay true to yourself no matter what others are doing, and to also believe that everything happens for a reason.
P.S And always a shout out to my furry best friend forever Happy, who’s been with me since kindergarten!

This past Tuesday I went to my senior prom! I had so much fun, and I was(and still am) in love with my dress. If anyone is interested, it’s from the new Sherri Hill Spring 2018 line and it’s style number 51801. I accessorized it with a clutch, ring, bracelets, and statement earrings. I got my earrings and bracelets from TJ Maxx, on the sale rack!! I was so surprised and happy that I found the perfect earrings and bracelets at such a good price. I got my ring from a boutique in Newburyport. I really recommend if you have a prom or special event coming up to look to your local boutiques first because you can find really unique pieces! My ring was so cute and I’ve never seen anything like it before.
I got my hair done by Erin at Salon Beau in Andover and I’m so happy with how it turned out! She did such a nice job and it was exactly the look I was going for. She pulled back one of the sides with a cute circle sparkly clip, and it stayed the whole night! It was sooo hot on this day but my hair stayed put the entire time, and my hair usually never does! My makeup came out fantastic, I got it done by my cousins girlfriend Jess! I usually am one not to like makeup on my face, but I loved this look so much. It completed my entire prom look and stayed even when I was sweating!
Here are some photos of my friends and I, I went to prom by myself but still had a great time and I wish I could go back to this night! We all danced the night away

I’m in love with this dress! I’ve never seen a dress before with this unique material and details to it. The one shoulder with the ruffle overlay is so flattering! The asymmetric fit and ruffles at the bottom make it so chic and perfect for any event for a girly girl. Not only is this dress unique and cute, but it’s also so comfortable! Like the dress that I shared in this post the other day, this midi dress is also from Asos. I’m telling you, they have the best midi dresses right now!
My earrings are from Francesca’s, which is a store I always look to for unique and affordable statement earrings. I love the shape of them and the rainbow colored tassels at the end of them. They matched perfectly with this dress and my shoes! I got these shoes from the Bobbles and Lace blowout sale months ago, so they don’t have them anymore, but I linked a similar pair above.

Hi everyone! I’ve been MIA lately and haven’t been blogging as much as I’ve been wanting to. It’s coming to the end of the school year and I’ve had lots of work and decisions to make, so I haven’t had the time to make content that I’m proud of. But, I’m back and plan to start getting back on my routine of blogging!
Last night I wore this dress that I absolutely love from Asos. If I had to chose a dress right now that describes myself, it would be this dress. The print and colors are gorgeous and are perfect for this time of year. The one shoulder on this dress adds to the girly and flirty style along with the ruffles which I love. A dress style that I’ve been obsessed with lately are midi dresses. I think they’re so flattering and the length is perfect for any event. Asos has been my go to website lately to get midi dresses like this one because they offer so much variety in them! I have another event later this week and I’ll be wearing another midi dress from Asos and I can’t wait to share it!

The weather was such a tease the past couple days that when I woke up this morning it was very disappointing to see that the weather wasn’t warm, and that there was SNOW on the ground:( This outfit was the perfect outfit for today because although it was cold and cloudy outside, the pops of color made me feel more cheerful and hopeful for warmer weather. If I were going out in this outfit today I would throw on a pair of black tights to keep me warmer! The dress, shoes, and earrings are old from Zara so I linked some of my favorite colorful dresses, flower earrings, and black slingbacks above. The trenchcoat is also old from Express but I linked a very similar one from J.Crew! Hope you all have a great weekend:)

Going shopping on Newbury Street is fun, but doing it in a cute outfit is even better. This season I’m loving bright colors and stripes! One of my new favorite stores is Zara, and I got something cute from there which you’ll see in an upcoming blog post! You can never go to Newbury Street and not get Georgetown Cupcakes, so of course my friend Daniella and I had to get them.
Shop This Look:
I couldn’t find the sunglasses I have on the Forever 21 website, so these ones are very similar from Urban Outfitters😆
