Making That Fall Transition...


These are the last of my New York City photos and I have all. the. feels.
I mentioned in this post (here) about making that transition into fall. Instead of diving straight towards the boots and scarves part of fall, because let's be honest: it is STILL TOO HOT FOR THAT, try incorporating fall transitional pieces here and there. For instance, this gingham top is a great piece to wear with a black skirt, distressed denim, and maybe when it gets colder... a pair of over-the-knee boots. Also, hats. I wear hats year-round, but you can never go wrong with a black hat. If you haven't bought one for fall yet, I recommend this one.

On another note, I fell in love with these wedges in New York City and bought them in both colors. I love how versatile the laces are. You can tie them however you want, and even make a cute bow on the side instead of lacing it up. If you've been following my blog for a while, you probably know how much I love utilizing items that can be worn in various ways. More bang for your buck, really. 

Hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

Sea-ing Red


All I can remember from this day is how hot and humid it was in Seaport District. Literally... sweating my face off. Ever since Lele Sadoughi gifted me with these old tassel earrings, I've been wearing lots of reds lately. They're not available unfortunately, but I'm loving these similar options here + here. Even though it's time to start gearing up for fall, I've been trying to slowly incorporate fall pieces here and there into my looks. These jogger pants, for example, are one of my favorites and adds a unique twist to a simple look. 

As for a little life update... yesterday was my last F.D.O.C. (First Day Of Classes) here at UNC-Chapel Hill and had all the feels. I'm pretty sure I won't stop talking about being a senior (still cannot believe it!) any time soon on the blog, so just throwing that out there!

What do you think of jogger pants for fall? Thoughts?

New York State of Mind


Apologies for not posting as consistently as I normally do. Ever since I left New York City, I've been trying to spend as much quality time with family and friends and settle into my home back in Chapel Hill. I'm finally all moved in, reunited with my best friends / roomies, and prepping for senior year. SO crazy, right?! I'm still in denial that this is my last year at UNC-Chapel Hill. 

Classes don't start until Tuesday, so I'm making use of what's left of summer freedom.

I wore this look on my second to last day in NYC and had to stop by the pier in Long Island to say goodbye to my summer home. Not to mention, going through old photos is making me miss it so much.

Cape-Able of Anything


Growing up, if I would've known capes would be considered a trend, I would've rocked my supergirl cape costume more often. Kidding.

Ever since I received this Dezzal cape and pencil pants set, I've felt cape-able of anything (pun intended). While strolling through East Village and Chelsea for work and after work, with the slight breeze on my side, this set makes me feel like I'm on top of the world. Or maybe the feeling like I'm about to save the world. Ha ha. 
Not only that, but it's honestly SUPER comfortable (see what I did there...). I did cuff the bottom part of the pants a bit more because I'm short and it looked more flattering. 

P.S. I'm wearing a Lele Sadoughi necklace, which is now marked down! There's tons of statement pieces you can choose from and lots of styles that I'm swooning over. Not that I'm biased or anything ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

So Soho


Home sweet home.
I finally made it back to Fayetteville today at 3 am, and realized I needed to write up today's blog post. After driving for 12 hours on the road, crammed with all my luggage in the backseat of the car, it's safe to say that I was more than thrilled to reunite with my bed the minute I arrived. 

It's good to be home, but I can already feel myself missing the City.
Speaking of... I wore this look last weekend through Soho after a visit to LadurĂ©e with my best friend Natalie and her boyfriend. I'm not going to lie... it felt like a heatwave outdoors while shooting, and it most certainly didn't help with my 2 lbs of curled hair. 

P.S. A lot of you commented on these wedges on my Instagram. I fell in love the minute I bought them, so I decided to buy both colors

Thanks for stopping by!
