One of my favorite views of Seattle from the overlook at Kerry Park.

Spring is finally here!

Funny puppy. I like how it looks like he is smiling for the camera.

The houses surrounding Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill are so majestic and beautiful. I could stare at them (and cherry blossoms) all day.

We climbed the castle. 100 steps exactly!

Another amazing view at the top of Queen Anne.

While I was in college, my parents sold the house I grew up in and decided it was time for a change. So they left Richmond Beach, which is about 20 minutes north of Seattle, and moved to Lake Union to live on a houseboat for a year. The scenery was amazing from the top deck, which was of a perfect, unobstructed view of the Space Needle and all of downtown Seattle. Unbeatable.

I’ve been in New Orleans since Wednesday and have definitely been enjoying the warmer climate. One of the main reasons I flew down here was to host a fun styling workshop with a group of girls during fashion week. More to come on that next week, but in the meantime, here are some photos from the past few days!

Loved walking past this guy in the By Water. Just sitting on his porch, enjoying his Sunday and playing music.

Some of the brightest houses I’ve seen in America.

My good friends waiting for coffee outside Booty’s. If you’re ever in New Orleans, make sure to swing by their shop, which is a combination of his barber shop called Gaudet Bros and her vintage store called Hazel & Florange. Located on 2700 Chartres.

Spent the day yesterday walking around the Marais and stopped off to admire the Place des Vosges, which is one of my favorite spots in Paris. Afterward I grabbed brunch at Les Philosophes, then spent the afternoon reading and getting some work done at a nearby cafe. I leave tonight to fly back to New York, which is always bittersweet for me when Paris is involved, but I feel so refreshed, inspired and ready to take on the holidays and new beginnings. Hope this week has been a happy and productive for everyone so far! xo

These photos were taken my dear friends, Genevieve and Jennie. Thank you for your continuous support! xo
More photos from my recent trip to Paris! Packing for this type of trip can feel so overwhelming, especially if where you are going, the weather is cold, because you have to factor in bulky layers. I decided to try and keep things simple by bringing easy pieces I could mix and match and then pull the whole look together with a tailored overcoat, or as Jenna Lyons like to call it, “my candy wrapper.”

Seeing that it was frigid most days while we were wandering around quaint Parisian streets, it ended up not really mattering what I was wearing underneath because my jacket was kept on at least 75 percent of the time. But I made sure to bring a coat (or coats rather) I love and this navy one from Zara definitely did the trick. And on days that I wanted to spice it up a bit, I simply layered it with my favorite faux fur vest to give it a dressier feel.

Yesterday morning I took my parents to Murray’s Cheese on Bleecker for egg sandwiches and orange juice. Have you ever been? If not, I highly recommend going – it’s one of my favorite little places in the village. I also love having dinner at Murray’s Cheese Bar, which is just next door. Below are some pictures from inside the cheese shop, if you’d like to take a look! xo

My Dad excitedly opening his egg and bacon sandwich. He couldn’t wait to try a bite.

Success. He loved it!

I love the fall because there seem to be pumpkins, both big and small, everywhere you look.

Saint Laurent Sunglasses (gift) / Zara Jacket and Leggings / Urban Outfitters Shirt / Pour La Victoire Boots (old – c/o) / Givenchy Bag
This is what I call my morning errands/travel uniform/I-just-want-to-be-comfy outfit that I often put on, which consists of some sort of plaid button down, my favorite Zara leggings and a flat riding boot. Can’t really go wrong with this combination in my opinion.

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon hanging out on the mud flats, and actually wore these wedges. I figured why not photograph the outfit with them on because realistically, these are the shoes I would’ve worn with this look anywhere else. But that said, I did have a pair of flip flops in my bag, however that would have been much too practical, right? My boring little flops would have taken away from the overall ensemble, and plus, the challenge of balancing in my sky high wedges while precariously walking over rocks and wet sand was much more fun. I know my Dad got a kick out of watching me hobble over the stones and shells, but I’m pretty positive, my Grandmother, Rita, would have been extremely proud. All in the name of fashion, right?
