Guys! The post you’ve all been waiting for – let’s talk about how you can attend NYFW (yes, even as a small blogger)!
First of all, what even is NYFW, you ask? NYFW stands for New York Fashion Week. It’s an event held in NYC every February and September, when designers showcase their upcoming collections to both the public and fashion industry. There are tons of invite-only fashion shows, parties, events, and showrooms that go on during NYFW, and tons of fabulous people who attend them (including you after this post!).
Right now you can use code INFLUENCER for 25% off a stay of your own and free valet parking at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar PHX!
I don’t know about you guys, but traveling is one of my favorite things to do. Unfortunately, if you aren’t a full-time travel blogger, then there might not always be budget or enough vacation days for a big getaway! So, what do you do? Enter, the Staycation. Staycations are like the little sister of the vacation. They’re the perfect way to spend some time outside of the house, have some of the same relaxing perks of being on vacation, and get to know your own city! Kind of like traveling without any of the actual exhausting “travel” part involved. Daniel and I were fortunate enough to recently partner with Hotel Palomar right in downtown Phoenix for a little staycation of our own, and now I’m here to convince you why everyone (yes, including you!) should take a staycation at least once. 🙂
Bonjour! As most of you know, (or at least any of you who follow me on Instagram), Daniel and I recently took our first international trip together to Paris! And while I’m still drowning in photos edits from that trip (and probably will be for the foreseeable future…I’m not exactly known for being the fastest blogger around on my turnaround time, considering I still haven’t blogged our Cali trip 🙄), I thought I would bang out a couple of quick pics to write you guys a list of the 15 Best Paris Instagram Spots! This was honestly the hardest list to write because EVERYWHERE in Paris was so beautiful, but these spots take the Parisian cake! So let’s hop to it, ya IG crazies.
You know the old saying “you can never go home again”? Well, I can’t decide if it’s true or not, but when we were planning to travel back to West Palm (where we lived for five years) for the first time since we moved, I was unsure of how to feel. I was excited, of course – but also fairly nervous. How could I not be? After all, Palm Beach was our home for a fair share of our lives – it only makes sense that there would be some element of pressure for us to find it the same perfect place that we used to. But what if we didn’t? We’ve changed, the city has changed – would we love it like we used to? What would it be like now? Would I even still know anyone who lived there? Would it feel completely foreign, or almost like we never left? Read more
Beach, please. I know I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I likelove the beach. Growing up in Jersey, we went down to the shore every Summer (I know, I know, Jersey Shore…#classic), and when I left for college, I ended up picking a school that was, you guessed it – at the beach.
Living in Palm Beach was one of the best decisions I ever ended up making (got a husband out of it, hey!), so when Daniel and I had the chance to go back for the first time in four years for a wedding, I. Was. Pumped. Excited of course to see dear old friends and celebrate a new marriage, but also to return to my favorite former home. And what does a visit to your favorite former home merit? Some ultra Palm Beach outfits, obviously. 😉 Read more
Happy Monday everyone! Another week, another outfit. And can we talk about the view that comes along with it? Honestly, I feel like I could be wearing a garbage bag in these photos and I would still love them. This was my last shoot of the day while I was in NYC, and I couldn’t think of a more perfect place to wrap things up than with this gorgeous view of the city skyline at sunset. Thanks New York, you make me look good. 😉
Alright guys – let’s talk about this floral jumpsuit. My extreme love for it comes with a bit of a backstory (with some good ol’ nostalgia thrown in!).
When I was little (probably around 3 or 4), I went through this phase where all I wanted to wear was this little orange dress that I had. There are photos of me that probably span at least a year, where I’m literally always wearing this dress. At the beach. At home. On the playground. In the sandbox. It didn’t matter where I was or what I was doing – I just wanted to wear that orange dress. It’s funny, because around this same time period I actually claimed that my favorite color was red (despite my love for my orange dress) – so much so, that my parents bought me this book, all about this little girl Ann and how much she loved the color red.
