Happy Saturday friends! Can you guys believe it’s September?? I feel like June-August has been a complete blur but I slowly but surely getting excited for Fall! This transitional summer to fall look that I put together can be easily adjusted for colder weather by throwing on a sweater or a denim jacket (denim is big this fall!). I love that this outfit is colorful but also fun with shoulder cut outs and an open back. ALSO you all need to try my new favorite foundation. It lasts through the day without getting oily/ is mattifying and is what I wore to my bestie’s wedding- highly recommend. Special shout out goes to Morgan Hayes for shooting these photos with me! Check out her sight here.
Alot happened yesterday & today so blogging is the perfect distraction. If you saw my last post, then you know that in July I took a last minute trip to LA to visit my roomie, Isabella, who was on a project out there! Every time I travel, I try to plan as efficiently as possible & do that through mapping everything I want to do out on My Maps (by Google)- you can also share the map with your friends to include places they want to go! Here is everything we did in a little over 3 days!
I can’t seem to stay away from California. I love it so much and have been fortunate enough to visit LA twice and San Francisco this year. These photos were shot on my second trip to LA a month ago when I last minute booked a flight to meet up with my roommate, Isabella, who was on a project in LA. We had so much fun and I finally hit a ton of spots that I had been meaning to (part 2 of this post will be about what we actually did). I was surprised at how hot it got while we were in LA (85+ degrees) so I’m thankful I wore a lightweight dress the day we went to LACMA. If you’re ever in the area, definitely check it out- the museum is huge! Also, since I always try to be comfortable when exploring, these new sandals were perfect for getting me through the day. Leave me your favorite LA spots in the comments below bc I will go back!
One of the trips I took recently, that I meant to post about earlier, was a trip with my friend Britanny to Savannah, GA! Savannah is an adorable, old-style southern town. It’s known for things like colorful historic homes, trees covered in Spanish moss, southern cooking/ seafood, a huge St. Paddy’s day celebration, and the filming of Forrest Gump. Since Southern GA gets really hot in the summer, I sported two outfits in Savannah that both had spaghetti straps and were lightweight. Because we did a lot of walking around as well, I made sure to wear comfy clothes & sported sneakers & flat sandals. Check out what we did there!
I’m finally about to hit my year mark as a full-time consultant! If you all have been following me for the last 10 months then you know that I was traveling ever week to NYC for work. It’s a completely different lifestyle then what I was used to but I’ve picked up some tips and secrets that allowed me to live the consulting life in the easiest way and also to the fullest. If any of you all are about to start a travel job, then I hope you find these tips below useful!
I’ve been so excited to be back in Manhattan this week after a month of being away (since I changed work projects and my new client’s not in NYC). There’s just something special about this city that makes me want to stay outside for an extra minute or to go to one more new place I’ve never been. One thing I’ve always loved is the way that people dress here and look effortlessly stylish. An outfit that’s really easy in my opinion to feel confident in is a maxi dress. For this particular look, I paired mine over a royal blue scoop tee and added some dainty accessories! P.S. I also flew with this maxi dress on one time and it was so incredibly comfortable- definitely recommend doing it if you have plans in the city as soon as you fly in like I often do! Continue reading
