These photos were taken back in April when I was in Sonoma with my parents and I’m finally getting around to sharing them, so sorry for the delay! We stayed at this adorable little cottage on a vineyard just outside of town (my Dad always manages to find the best places) and it was the perfect reprieve from the long days of driving. During this trip I rotated between a few pairs of shorts and tanks but practically lived in this hat (as I am sure you could tell from my Instagrams), these comfy Dr. Scholl’s Shoes and this trusty cross body bag, which holds a surprising amount of stuff despite it’s size.
On another note, StyleCaster featured me along with four other awesome bloggers in their story about spring style. Check it out here!

Happy Wednesday! So, I am back in New Orleans (again)! But this time, I am only here for a day or two before I head to Mobile, Alabama with friends to attend Hangout Fest, which is part of my Creative Council project with UGG Australia. I will be creating two more Paper Doll outfit remixes around these shoes and bag and will share them next week, but in the meantime here is a very similar outfit I will most likely be living in this weekend. I hope you all are having a lovely day! xo

As the weather begins to change in New York, I always find myself wearing a couple of light layers to accomodate the varying temperatures that happen throughout the day. It might start out slightly chilly in the morning, requiring a light blazer underneath a jacket of some sort, and then by lunch, only the blazer is needed. And then all of a sudden, after running around all day, I find myself stripping off all my long sleeved items and that’s why a short sleeve shirt as my base layer is absolutely necessary. Then by the time the sun is setting, I am piling all my layers on again! Do you guys struggle with seasonal transitional dressing? What are your go-to pieces? xo

Although this blog is mostly about fashion and style, I like to keep things fresh and new by adding different types of content from time to time. Right now what’s really on my mind (besides what I’m wearing tomorrow) is my apartment. Lately I have been scouring the web for inspiration to find new decor since I feel my little abode is in need of a definite facelift. And since I am painting one wall (maybe this color?) this weekend, I wanted to find some decorative pieces that were neutral in color but still chic and classy. I also decided to start a new Pinterest board that will be filled with my apartment inspiration, so you can follow along here! In the meantime, here are five things I’m currently crazy about right now. xo
P.S. I would love to know what decor sites and pieces you’re loving at the moment, so if you have a second, I’d love it if you’d leave a link or two in the comments below!

During my family’s road trip from California to Seattle I basically lived in some basic version of this outfit, which consisted of a tank and these cutoff shorts. So during one of the longer stretches of driving, my Dad and I took a break and hopped out of the car to take some photos to show how you can easily remix a simple look like this one, two different ways. Hope you enjoy, and are having a lovely Tuesday! xo
