Ah I am actively trying to catch up on blog posts from last month since I was in both NYC & Asia! I am so grateful for being able to travel to NYC so often & for getting to know the city better than I ever thought I would (I’m going to get a “Girl’s Guide to NYC” post up soon!). On my last trip, my Mom went with me for half of it & we had a great time exploring the Chinatown in Flushing, rooftop bars in Flatiron (one featured below), and so much more!  My favorite outfit I wore on the weekend was for sure this ruffle look! The softness of the ruffles & baby blue really balanced the edgy, dark look of my jeans & leather jacket. My boss once called my top “funky” in a nice way. Haha I love it & suggest giving ruffles a try (I didn’t expect myself to like them as much as I do now!).

How to Build the Perfect Fall Charcuterie Board

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI wanted to do something a little different today on the blog and show you guys how to make the perfect Fall charcuterie board! It’s perfect for if you’re going to have a gathering with friends or head to the park with someone for a picnic. I have always loved seeing pictures of charcuterie on my Instagram feed or seeing how chefs style them when I feel like splurging a little at a restaurant.  I was pretty proud of how this turned out and was surprised by how easy it was to put together with just a few ingredients. My favorite ingredient I used was the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese- it is so delicious, has a great semi-dry texture, and is the perfect amount of salty (I can’t wait to use it in future charcuterie boards or grate it over pasta!) It has been made the same way for over 900 years and is produced exclusively in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and parts of the provinces of Mantua and Bologna.

Fall-Time Boho Ft. Tobi

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATop (Also available in white!)| Skirt | Booties (similar one here) | Lip Stain (in shade “Crunk”)

I’m excited to be partnering today with Tobi, a women’s apparel company, for another post (you can find the first one here). Somethings that I’ve been loving this fall are the colors maroon and deep red. When I saw this maxi skirt on Tobi’s site, I had to have it. I paired it with booties and this Tobi crocheted shirt and love how this outfit came out with a little boho flare! I find the slit to be a little high on the skirt but it can be paired with some spanx under or a pair of tights so that you don’t have to worry about it. I took these pictures in the park with my friends Isabella and Vino (he took the pics!) & after we had a little picnic in the park which made for an awesome evening!

My Fall Skincare Routine Ft. Clarisonic

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn this photo above, I am not wearing any foundation or concealer! I haven’t been able to do this and completely love my skin in a while due to previous acne scarring. Recently I’ve been using the Clarisonic Mia 1 for 10 days and I can really see the results! My pores feel tighter, my skin is clean, and I feel like most of my acne scars aren’t visible anymore! Because of my improved skin, I thought it’d be helpful if I put together a post about my Fall skincare routine which I do at night! Clarisonic was nice enough to sponsor today’s post and is providing me with a coupon code for you guys! You can get 15% off all devices featured at http://www.clarisonic.com/hercampusinfluencer using the code “HERCAMPUS”! (The tool is a bit pricey but Clarisonic offers monthly payment plans upon credit approval. See terms for details.)

Cozy Sweater Dresses + Mini Apt Tour!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHey everyone! I’m doing something a little different today on the blog which is showing some indoor photos! I thought this post would be the perfect chance to show you a super comfy dress while also showing you how I decorated my home! This Sweater Dress is from Tobi and trust me, it’ll keep you warm in the winter! I think this would be adorable styled with a leather jacket and black booties! It’s perfect for a casual stroll through the city or for chilling at a friend’s place! I got this in a large but it ran a little big so I’d recommend going one size down (I’m 5’7″). It also comes in green and black! (If you wanted to find the link for my headphones, you can find them here.)

Bell Sleeves & Boyfriend Jeans

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetTop (similar one here & black print here) | Jeans | Flats | Sunglasses | Wristlet (similar one)

Heyy everyone! This past weekend, my parents and I drove to Louisville meet up with my brothers for my older brother’s birthday! We only get to reunite about once or twice a year so it’s always great to get together. My older brother also has a corgi which I absolutely adore so I included her in a few pics here. 🙂 It was the perfect mix of warm and fall weather this weekend so I went with a light bell-sleeved top and ripped boyfriend jeans. It took me SO LONG to get into the boyfriend jean trend and find ones I like! These are so comfy and I always get compliments on them! Can’t wait to put together more fall looks!
