Snow Daze

Snow Daze 4Happy Monday, loves! Greeted by yet another snow storm this past weekend…I can’t remember a weekend where it DIDN’T snow now. But pretty snow means pretty photos! I couldn’t help doing a little shoot while at home last weekend amidst the pretty snowfall. This is probably the most you’ll see of me out in the snow…I usually prefer to sit inside with a big mug of hot cocoa and just watch. :)

Inspired by another one of my favorite bloggers, Kat Tanita from With Love From Kat, I decided to pull together a toggle coat outfit of my own. I loved Kat’s color pairings with her toggle coat, so I paired similar colors and spiced up the outfit with some pretty chiffon, suede booties, and my own bag & accessories.

Birthday Festivities

Heartfelt 21st birthday confession in this post–read on if you’re ready to handle some deep personal reflections! <3Β DSC_0165

DSC_0181Another year past and I’ll admit that this time, it definitely feels different than last year. I’m not usually a big birthday person–sometimes I almost forget! But this year, the big twenty-one…another milestone come to pass, it’s definitely got me thinking of how much I’ve changed since starting my life in the city. I don’t feel like the same person I was before, but in a good way. In these three years, I’ve learned so much and realized so many things…and I have to say, I wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything in the world, cause they have led me to the person that I am today.

Birthday Festivities 3Starting my freshman year back in 2012, I felt like I had a lot of unresolved issues carrying over from high school. I can’t say high school was the best time for me and there were definitely times I hurt deeply, but I wanted a fresh start–and what better way to start than in the most inspiring city in the world. I brought with me my hopes, dreams, fears, insecurities…and my love for fashion.

Bundled in Burgundy

Bundled in Burgundy 7Happy Friday loves! Finally the weekend again…I feel like these weeks have been flying by recently. I apologize for the sporadic posting schedule–with classes and recruiting in full swing, it’s tougher to find time to shoot and post. But no worries, I am definitely working on getting back to the two posts a week schedule–soon, I promise!

Bundled in Burgundy 2Lately, it’s been absolutely FREEZING outside here in New York. I can’t bring myself to wear anything other than blanket scarves, wool coats and over-the-knee boots. (If you can’t tell, I couldn’t even bring myself to shoot this post outside.) There isn’t anything I enjoy warm more than bundling up into a blanket scarf right now. I LOVE the burgundy check pattern of this particular one–and it matches perfectly with my burgundy suede OTK boots! ^.^
