Hey everyone! I recently got back from a trip out to Southampton for my friend Natasha’s birthday! Since seeing it on Gossip Girl and hearing about how boujie it is, my gal friends and I had been wanting to go for years! It was in a lot of ways exactly what we thought it would be like in the sense that there’s a lot of upper class people and people are driving luxury cars like Porsche’s and Bentley’s on every corner. A lot of our friends gave us advice that when people go to the Hamptons, they typically rent a house and stay in that house to party (rather than going out to a lot of different places). Since we don’t live near NY, we wanted to do a lot of exploring while we were out there and I wanted to share that with you guys! Continue reading
I’ve been hooked on florals this summer and I’m not entirely sure why. Maybe it’s because the trend nowadays are bright colors & prints and florals are one of the few prints I wear. Georgia has also been a complete sauna lately so I’ve been trying to wear clothes that are as thin as possible (without being see-through of course). This outfit is so light and comfy and perfect for a stroll around the city! I took these in Piedmont Park with my photographer Taylor. Since I also like to make my posts personal too, I decided to do another “12 Random Things” about my life at the bottom of the post if you want to check it out! (The last time I did it was in December and you can find the post here.)
It feels amazing to have time to blog again. I didn’t mean to go on such a break but when life slaps you in the face, you have to do what you have to do & may not have time for the things you want to do. The last 2 months were nothing short of challenging, not because of one specific thing but because of multiple things happening at once including the loss of a family member, keeping information from people, trying to make the decision between finding a different job or grad school, & also being manipulated by people. Because I’m a semi-private person, I don’t want to go too into detail about everything but I do want to share 6 life lessons I learned with y’all below. Also if you’re curious, I decided to go to grad school & will be starting my MBA in August!! So excited and hope you enjoy this post! (P.S. The photos were taken by my friend, photographer Taylor Brodeur.)
Something I’ve grown more and more thankful for these last few weeks is my girl squad. This past month has been nothing short of challenging and I’m so lucky that I have such a strong support system. Usually people share the good and bad of life with a few friends but I’m lucky I gave a whole group of girls to share that with. Surround yourself with people that make you laugh, are your cheerleaders, and push you to be better. Life is so much better that way.
This past weekend me and the gals went up to North Georgia to try out some of the vineyards (I reviewed them at the bottom of the post)! It was so beautiful to see all the greenery and the mountains. For the trip, I knew I wanted to be comfortable so I went with this new maxi and sandals. This outfit is one that anyone can pull off and you can’t help but be confident in it! I added a belt to the dress to cinch the waist and tied the hanging piece in a knot- super cute! For makeup I incorporated a natural look with acne-healing foundation, eyeliner, and my new favorite lipstick (all linked above). Just wanted to clarify one thing- in the picture above, my friend Natasha is not stepping on my foot (LOL), her foot is hanging and mine is under it.
Even though I’m definitely a city girl, it’s still so nice to get out to nature/ the woods every once in a while! This past weekend, my friend Hannah (who is such a talented photographer) and I went to Historic Banning Mills which is an hour southwest of ATL! We had so much fun staying in a treehouse (pics of the inside at the end), dining at the lodge, and doing a three hour zipline tour (they have the Guiness World Record for the longest zipline course)! Definitely recommend it and a big thank you goes out to Historic Banning Mills for hosting us! For my outfit, I wanted to be both cute and comfortable so my go-to is colored layers over leggings! Check out the post for my outfit details and more photos of the getaway! Continue reading
I’m currently in the car on the way back from Louisville and am trying to get through writing this blog post without getting car sick. Lol My family occasionally takes trips to Louisville to reunite/ visit my older brother and it’s always nice to see everyone! Pretty much every time I am at my brother’s, I make sure to take some pics with his adorable pup, Snow because she is the cutest. On this weekend, it was around 40 degrees out and I stayed warm with my pink fluffy coat. I love it so much as it’s so cozy and always gets a lot of compliments! I always feel a little extra in it but in a good way and I always joke that it borderline looks like a robe! Definitely recommend getting one. 🙂 Read below to see more outfit pics and to see where we went out to eat!
