On Thursday we drove out of New York City in a beautiful 2016 Volvo XC90, that the brand loaned to us for our road trip to Cleveland. It took us eight hours to get there (one hour longer than normal because of road work and traffic), which isn’t terrible but definitely isn’t short either, so I wanted to make sure I was prepared to sit in a car for that long and be as comfortable as possible.

Hello, hello! I am back from Cleveland but wanted to let you guys know that I have a post coming later today on my Road Trip Beauty Essentials so make sure to check back around lunchtime! I will send a little shout on Instagram once it’s live. :) xo
On Thursday we drove to Cleveland to visit friends and family for a few days, and I gathered some great research to include in my upcoming city guide, which I can’t wait to share with you guys. Today we are heading to Cedar Point, which I am really excited about because I love roller coasters (for the most part) but am unsure if I have the guts to actually handle this particular ride. Eeeps! I will be documenting everything on my Snapchat and Instagram (user name for both accounts is @mystylepill) so follow along if you’d like!

As someone who works from home for the most part, I usually wear fairly casual clothing when it’s just me sitting at my desk. But there are also plenty of days that I have meetings or client sessions and I want to take my style up a notch and wear something I feel good in. On my busiest days, I definitely wear a few different “hats” whether it’s “blogger, stylist, friend or girlfriend,” but I always want to make sure that my outfits transition effortlessly into whatever it is I might be doing. I find that during the summer I am drawn to pretty, lightweight shift dresses that I can easily dress up or down and this pretty white linen dress with elegant embroidery from Tommy Bahama is the perfect piece to wear to a meeting then straight out to happy hour with friends. Case in point: I wore this look earlier to a causal client session (a pair of simple flat sandals were in my bag – see my styling tip below) straight out to drinks with Casey and a few mutual colleagues at Parlor for some after work drinks.Styling tip:
Stash a high heel sandal in your bag to swap out your flat sandals, and a favorite accessory such as a statement necklace or a couple of bracelets to elevate your look in seconds. Or if jewelry isn’t your thing, grab your favorite red lipstick to really pack some punch!

Whenever my friends plan a trip to NYC, the first thing many ask me for is a Times Square hotel recommendation. While I usually avoid the tourist spots in the city, I was recently introduced to Row NYC. Located on 8th Avenue at 44th Street, Row NYC is located just around the corner from tons of wonderful theaters and bustling restaurants, and a 3-night stay at the hotel completely changed the snarky opinion I held about Times Square. Here’s why it’s a great place to stay.
You guys all know how much I love sunglasses, right? I feel like I have every shape and style imaginable but I’m of the mindset that I can never have too many pairs of sunnies because I love how they add an extra something to my outfits. I actually have a hard time finding a photo of myself where I’m not wearing a pair! read more >
