Hiking Upstate NY: Breakneck Ridge

My 2 brothers visited me, and we all went on a hike in upstate NY. It was a tough hike for me (I’m a wimp, and I had a blister about 5 mins in) but it was worth it for this view! It’s funny, because when I’m doing something scenic I always want to remain some semblance of cute, but also wear comfortable enough clothes…

Our dining room is still a work in progress, but it was so fun getting everyone together for a sit down meal for the holidays! I love…

Two Holiday Looks In the City ❄☃

Every holiday season there are two things I absolutely need – a new red dress as a holiday party go-to, and some cute around-the-house pieces (like a fun sweater, or a mug for hot chocolate, etc.) I love seeing our collection grow each year, as we make more traditions and soak in all of the holiday feels that we used to miss out on in…

A Day At Wilkens Fir Farm

This holiday season, we decided we wanted to make cutting down our own tree a tradition! It’s the perfect time of year for a drive upstate, and it was a gorgeous day for the adventure! We found our tree standing all cute and tall, and then Matt sawed it down! Then we shared cider donuts, and drove home as the sun was setting while listening…

The First of Many Holiday Outfits

So, can we talk about these Boden flats. When they arrived, I couldn’t believe they were real. They’re too good to be true! I am so excited to wear them to some holiday parties, but also dressed down with jeans is perfect! This month is bittersweet, because it is so so cheery and sparkly, but it passes in a flash. I have so many great…

❄ Logical Layers ❄

It’s easy to fall in and out of love. I feel like I am doing it every day, week, month. My feelings on being a pet owner, my love/hate relationship with green beans and my mood while I am getting dressed… all shifting always. This month I REEEALLLY love edamame, but I hate high waisted skirts – a love of mine for years. It’s all…

Arctic Freeze at NYFW

Karma is a B, and us fashion lovers must have some prettttty bad Karma. After living through my first winter, I swear that this week has been by far the COLDEST week. I swore off fashion week last Sept, but I am a believer in second chances. I took off on Friday and attended some showroom collection previews, parties, etc. Here’s my fashion week mentality:…

small things // great love

T-minus 2 days until that big dreaded/loved day of love. I admittedly think the day is very silly, and people who love each other should just be in love every day… but i do enjoy dressing in red, pink and hearts in the days leading up to it 🙂 i remember my very first valentines day with a valentine. it was 10th grade, and my…

This weekend my 85-year-old grandma told me, “I HATE RED HAIR.” no, she isn’t color blind and yes she did tell me directly to my face, knowing i just dyed my hair red. i’ve always been one to stick with my guns though, and while it is a huge change, it is one i’ve let in with open arms! sometimes it’s good to go out…

1st NY christmas

For our very 1st Christmas in NY, we tried to make some new traditions! Matt and I woke up and went for a run in Hempstead Lake state park with claudie, and then we took the train into NYC to see the tree! It was as magical as i remembered… although it was really crowded. Christmas Day maybe wasn’t the best time to visit it…

1 more sleep until Santa comes to town! I am still in disbelief that the holiday season happened so very quickly. I swear as i get older, time just keeps passing faster and faster. Can’t I just slow it down? Next time a day is going by slowly, I am going to be thankful for that. 🙂 Aeropostale sweater Forever 21 skirt/ jacket vintage boots/…

plaid & hunter green

Lately i’ve been thinking a lot about what my life would be like if i never started to blog. Where would I be? Who would I know? How would I feel about myself? I wonder constantly if my blog has built up my self esteem, or forced me to be hyper critical and has torn it down. I wonder how people perceive my differently because…
