ARCHIVE: misc.


Kept it simple and laid back for you guys today, with an easy breezy tank, lightweight jeans and suede booties. Okay, the suede booties might be a bit heavy for summer, but I just couldn’t stare at them in my closet any longer and not wear them. I recently bought them majorly on sale at Scoop, (who right now, is actually having a HUGE SALE) and decided I had to break them out a little early. Can you blame me? I love summer but is anyone else ready for fall?

Lately I’ve been all about the juxtaposition of a girly sundress paired with edgier accents. Last week I posted this outfit – a silky striped shift paired with a black leather jacket - and this week I decided to show how you can quickly change the appearance of very girly, white sundress by once again, simply adding black leather accessories. It’s an easy way to take a feminine day-time dress to a full on evening-appropriate outfit. xo


I found these shoes at Zara a while back, but if I had to buy another pair, I would seriously consider these!


I still adore my beloved Givenchy. Such a tried and true piece.

I’m heading to Spain in early August and plan on living in silky, breezy shifts like this one, which I scooped up on sale from Joie last weekend. With the overcast weather we have been experiencing, I decided to throw on a leather jacket along with coordinating black accessories to add a bit of edge to this summery number. But in a few months, when it’s sweltering out, I’ll lose the jacket, and swap out my oversized bag for a simple cross-body and my heels for espadrilles. Easy peasy! xo

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to join the Olympus team down in New Orleans to test out their new TG-3 and the E-M10 cameras. Over the course of a couple days, we stayed at The W Hotel in the French Quarter, had dinner at some great old school places, such as the Bourbon House and Arnaud’s, took a ghost tour, and visited a plantation as well as a swamp, where we fed alligators marshmallows! You can see some of my photos from my time in the city here, but below are some of my favorites that I took during the second part of the excursion. (All photos were taken with Olympus cameras.)




These alligators blended in so well with the water. They would sneak/swim right up to the boat out of nowhere!



The guide fed them marshmallows, which they loved. ( The guide assured us that feeding them this treat is not actually bad for them – phew!)


I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the trees and Spanish moss that seemed to be everywhere. I didn’t grow up with vegetation like that so it was fascinating to me.



I spy a little turtle!


Overall it was a really great trip. It’s fair to say that I spend a lot of time down in New Orleans, but this time I was lucky enough to see Louisiana in a different light than before. I especially loved capturing different shots on the plantation and during the swamp tour since I had never really ventured outside the city limits, so I saw things with fresh eyes for sure. I also had such a fun time playing around with the different cameras and lenses, chatting with the Olympus team and meeting everyone that was a part of our group. Thanks for having me Olympus, I had a blast! xo

This past weekend, for those of you just catching up, was spent in Charlottesville, Virginia for my good friend Rachel’s wedding, which was held at her family’s vineyard. But before the actual festivities began, my friends and I had a couple days to explore the area, and of course we went wine tasting! We only visited a couple wineries, but they were really great and the property and views were spectacular.


First up was Glass House Winery. We tried their Viognier, which was great, and sat down by the water on their dock.



After some relaxation in the sun, we ventured onto Moss Vineyards and sipped on their rosé, which was also really lovely and refreshing.


Me and Emily, goofing off.


My Saturday was spent at the City Market in downtown Charlottesville, where I indulged in a really tasty bagel, egg and cheese and enjoyed looking at the pretty produce and flowers.



I didn’t get to actually eat at The Whiskey Jar, but heard it’s great. If you’re ever in the area, check it out and let me know what you think!


Saturday night, we all headed to Ankida Ridge Vineyards (my friend’s husband’s vineyard), where we had to be taken up to the house (and later on the vineyard) by a tractor. Yes, I sat on a bale of hay in my dress, which was pretty amusing, especially because the ride was up a steep, steep hill. I had to use my oblique muscles to keep from falling sideways, ha!



Perfect comfort food.



Such an amazing weekend over all. Congratulations Rachel and Nathan!

And to you my dear readers, thanks for reading as always. It means the world to me.

Happy Tuesday! xo


We drove back from Orange Beach, Alabama yesterday and spent the rest of the late afternoon walking around The Warehouse District where my friend Lauren lives (and generously let us stay while we were in town). The light was so beautiful, which of course led to an impromptu photo shoot. I feel like it’s finally summer, at least in New Orleans where it was 80 degrees today, so I went all out with mixing and matching bright colors and patterns.

P.S. I just checked the weather in New York and it’s supposed to be 75 degrees today! Woo hoo! xo


Spent this past weekend in New Orleans (more on that part of the trip later this week) and then headed out to Orange Beach in Alabama to be with friends for Hang Out Fest. It was an absolute blast. I’m about to hop in the car and head back to Louisiana so I’ll keep it short and let the pictures do the talking. Hope y’all had a great past few days! xo
