Last week, Casey and I went apple picking up at Applewood Orchards and stayed overnight at my favorite B&B, the Inn at Stony Creek. We also met up with a fun crew of friends the following day at a different orchard for more apple and pumpkin picking, but more on that soon. For now, here are some cute photos from our time in Warwick!

My dapper man, Bow Tie Casey. :)
The orchard pup, Cuddles!
We picked all the apples! Meaning, we left with one bag.
It’s finally getting to be cozy-weather season again and that means big scarves, soft knits and best of all, comfy boots! Case in point, these brown leather mid-calf boots by Clarks are perfect for wearing with skinny jeans or paired with a cute dress and tights. I like how this style is loose around my ankle, which I feel is flattering, plus the two-tone leather is super chic and versatile.
Growing up, my Mom was constantly slathering me and my Dad with sunscreen. Whether it was when we went hiking, swimming, skiing or camping, she taught me that the affects of the sun can be very damaging when your skin is not properly protected, no matter if it’s sunny or overcast outside.
Because of her, I’ve become a huge advocate of sunscreen and the positive affects it has by wearing it on a daily basis. So with that said, my recent partnership with Hawaiian Tropic has made me really excited to share their sunscreen products with you, which include Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance and Silk Hydration Face Lotion. I’ve been using both nonstop and compiled three outfits for fun autumn activities (above) that I will be doing this fall while staying protected with this easy to apply, yummy smelling sunscreen. :) To see more from Hawaiian Tropic, follow them on Instagram. xo
This past Saturday and Sunday, I spent the afternoon at two different malls, Roosevelt Field and The Westchester, and hosted two styling events with bloggers Rach Martino, Ian Crumm and Lake Louis put on by Simon Malls, GQ and Glamour magazine. There were runway shows, style challenges and of course, a fun lounge where shoppers could peruse the latest trends and pieces we love for fall. We were pretty much busy non-stop both days, but managed to capture some photos with what went on, to share with you guys!
The styling challenges begin! Rach and I each called someone up from the audience, they were given a challenge, and had two minutes to complete it! The winner went home with a $100 gift card to Simon Malls!

Happy, happy Wednesday! I hope everyone’s week is going well. The weather in New York has been so un-fall-like lately, it’s sort of frustrating. But it’s just because I am so ready to wear my leather jackets! I am in fact wearing one in these photos, but that’s only because the weather allowed it for a few hours, other than that, it’s been in the 70s. I know I shouldn’t complain, but come on October, it’s time for autumn temperatures!
Ok, I will stop complaining about the weather now and move on to discussing my outfit. :)
So, I know that oversized, baggy boyfriend jeans aren’t always the most flattering, but man are they comfortable. And they can be made to look chic and put together if styled the right way. In this situation, I opted for slouchy goodness all the way except for the very pointy and slightly severe black mules I have on, which I felt created an interesting juxtaposition. I love how they give off a very 90s vibe but at the same time are current and sleek, which I love and always look for in a shoe.
Hello, and happy Tuesday! Today I have a fun remix for you guys where I wore a simple black v-neck, black jeans, black sunglasses and red lipstick and created three different outfits by just playing with different jackets and various accessories. Scroll down to see them up close as well as shop the looks!
Saturday was sort of a rainy, so we were pretty low key. In all honesty, we binged watched episodes of The Blacklist before finally peeling ourselves off the couch to head to Long Island City for a dinner with friends. Sunday was full of football and brunching, but then later on in the evening Casey and I met up with our friends Liz and Zack to go see The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze! We hopped on the train at Grand Central to Croton-Harmon and it only took us about 45 minutes to get there, which was nice. We had dinner up there, and then around 9pm we walked down to the festival site where we were blown away by what we saw. I had a lot of questions upon entering so if you’re interested, here is their FAQ, which explains everything you need to know.
A few fun facts: as far as the pumpkins go, many are real but some are Funkin “art pumpkins.” But every single Jack O’Lantern is individually hand-carved on site at Van Cortlandt Manor by their team. Also, since not all the pumpkins survive for the full run of the Blaze, they order more than 10,000 live pumpkins, which weigh between five and fifty pounds each, which equals out to be about 200,000 pounds of pumpkin! Impressive right?! Here is a video I snagged from their site if you want to see the Blaze in action! xo
