Forest Sprite

I promised myself earlier this year that I would spend more time outside, enjoying nature, because nature is ever peaceful and calming for me. This honeysuckle bush is my favorite part of my backyard, and it's grown with me since I was a little kid.

World of Wonder

Just got back from India and boy am I beat.
Patrick & I have been taking a break from our lives to enjoy our time together lately. 
In that time we've been exploring lots of abandoned buildings and enjoying the beauty of the decay and the faint memory of what they were in their prime.

This old Wonder/Hostess building though long shut down, still has some life in the logos and signage, which I really enjoy. I wound up complimenting those bold colors with my new Mary Blair skirt and vintage inspired sunnies.

To The Moon and Back

hello little darlings.

It's been a while, but I know you guys don't mind. I'm learning now more than ever how important it is to make time for yourself and your loved ones. I've been so busy lately and I haven't had a lot of time for myself let alone the people that I care about. let's all remember to try to take time out of this crazy holiday season to take care of ourselves and do what makes us happy. After all, our time is precious.

wishing you all a very happy holiday and an extra special new year

Sunday Morning

We've been blessed with some sun these past few days, so Patrick & I took it upon ourselves to go exploring in my neck of the woods on Long Island. I forgot that I have so many beautiful parks nearby that I frequented a lot during my childhood. We drove out to Heckscher State Park.

It was so nice coming here as an adult and remembering all the nice moments I had shared here with my family. It's so vast and full of life, it almost makes you feel like you're miles away from home.

Zou Bisou Bisou

hello little darlings, I hope you're all enjoying this lovely weather so far!

I'm afraid I've been so busy with new jobs and life happening that I haven't really been dressing up lately let alone photographing my looks, but I have so many new things I want to share with you!
I received these amazing dresses from UMGEE U.S.A., They're two very lovely shift dresses, & I'd always been afraid of shift dresses on me up until now.

The colors duke, the colors!
So my fears of looking like a sad fat girl wearing a sack went right out the door when I saw how flattering these dresses really are. The material is not thin at all feels so luxurious so it just flows on the body so so so nicely. Also I feel like a princess in them with the sleeves being so regal. 
Megan Draper eat your heart out.

This barbie pink shift dress (WA9631 in Hot Pink) is evvvverrrryyythingggg. The color alone is perfection, but I love the strappy detailing on the back. It could be a very basic dress, but then it has the slits down the sleeves and the studs on the back. I'm all about the details!

I paired it with gold chain belt gifted to me from my mother, H&M heels and a Lux Deville purse.

This next shift dress (W8840 in Mint) is my favorite of the two because the color is one that I'm totally obsessed with. (remember when my hair was this color?) The bell sleeves with the eyelet detailing are so beautiful I could cry. I was feeling major Princess Jasmine vibes from this dress, hence the...all gold everything. 

I paired it with a vintage gold belt, H&M necklace, and gifted beaded hoop earrings.

UMGEE is a wholesale clothing brand based out of L.A. with very modern & stylish designs for women in both straight and plus sizes! You can check out their clothes on their site, but they are sold in various shops such as Country Outfitter & Velvet Moon.

Take care

Warby Parker: Winter 2014 Collection

Hello there little darlings!

The colder months are finally here in NY and I am so excited to finally break out all my fall/winter clothes! Sweaters, beanies, peacoats, scarves, all that goodness!

Now, Warby Parker has reached out to me regarding their new Winter 2014 collection that has officially launched today! I've always passed by their stores in Manhattan and practically gawked in through their windows coveting their gorgeous glasses. You may have heard of them before, I actually read about them in Vogue last year! Way cool.

If you don't know who or what Warby Parker is, it's a really great socially conscious and affordable eyewear company that has set itself apart in the industry by designing beautiful high-quality frames at an affordable price. Also for every pair of glasses purchased, they donate a pair to someone in need that doesn't have the means of affording glasses. It never even occurred to me how much of a luxury glasses really are, something that's such a basic need for most people, and so many people don't have access to that! Whenever I can, I like to support companies with a good cause that are run by actual people you can get into contact with, who deeply care about their customers. 

Their new winter collection features a mixture of stainless steel and acetate, combined with gorgeous new finishes on classic styles that will look great on just about anyone. Pearled tortoise shell, cool reflective blues, warm woodsy textures, there's something for everyone. Dress them up or down, these are seriously gorgeous.

I've put some fun looks together for you inspired by some of their new eyeglasses and sunglasses for their new Winter 2014 collection! For more info on the items featured, you can click on the images to go straight to my Polyvore.
This first pair has to be my favorite. I love vintage inspired frames, forever, always, till I die. These are the Holcomb eyeglasses in Pearled Tortoise. They are so gorgeous on their own that I would just wear them every day with my casual looks. Pair them with a simple cranberry floral print dress, a warm scarf & tights, your favorite flats, and a nice deep red lip color.

This next look is a very fun & festive one. I was really inspired by these Keene eyeglasses in Beach Glass (I love the name!). The color is so unique to me, it's not really a silver or a grey, but more like a reflective steel blue. They're so simple in silhouette but the color is so pretty that I wanted to play it up. Grab a sparkly dress, some glittery pumps, rhinestone accessories, and big fluffy lashes for a fun NYE look.

This last look is probably my favorite. It's part Margot Tenenbaum and part Penny Lane from Almost Famous. These Laurel sunglasses in Oak Barrel look GORGEOUS, seriously they are a dream and they give me so many feels. For a cozy boho look, pair them with a fuzzy suede jacket, paisley skirt, floral scarf and Jack Kerouac.

You can see the new collection over on the Warby Parker site, it's up now!

Cross my heart

Hey guys! Hope you're having an amazing start to the autumn season already!
There's so much I want to do in the next few months: pumpkin picking, harvest festivals, haunted houses, costume parties, halloween decorating, all kinds of festive things! It is, after all, my favorite time of year.

Since this weather is my favorite thing ever, I thought I'd come at you with a quick OOTD on basic pieces you can fill your wardrobe with for these still-warm-but-kinda-cool few months.
