Seeing Sequins


You dolls might have read my most recent post on what to wear a casual night out. The look consisted of a black sweater, some chic sunglasses (if it’s early evening), and your favorite pair of jeans. Easy right? I wore that outfit as a comfortable alternative to getting all dressed up out in Barcelona. Well, when it was time to head back to Dublin, jetlag still had ahold of me, but I wanted something a little more glam. Enter this elevated long sleeve tee, covered in sequins. The color is described as deep well, and it’s the prettiest shade of ink navy. It almost looks black if not in the light. This time when I was heading out – you guessed it…I reached for the same pair of jeans! But instead of a sweater, I threw on this top and the comfiest pair of heels I now own. With western details (another blog post coming on this soon), the heels are perfectly on-trend but classic enough to last from year to year. I love this look because I get to wear sequins without looking like it’s my 21st birthday, or I’m heading out to a night in Vegas. You know what I mean? The light jeans keep it casual and modern. But hey, what girl doesn’t like to the sparkly center of attention!


That night I had the most fantastic time going to dinner with old friends in Ireland and sipping cocktails with my brother. I even hit my late-night Indian spot, a restaurant I’ve frequented since I was 15. Before we hit the town, we also managed to take some photos together…something that my mom was surprised and delighted by. And I have to say…my brother has the blogger poses down pact. Perhaps I should watch my back! Spending time with family is my favorite part of traveling, and this trip was no exception. I hope you dolls stay tuned because I have a couple more Fall looks that I wore while on my trip. Coming to the blog soon!

Back Down South


Last weekend Jason and I had the opportunity to break out of NYC for a long weekend and head back to our old stomping grounds of Atlanta, GA. I hadn’t been back since we moved years ago, and it was a surreal experience to see the city from different eyes and at a different stage in life.


Some sights and sounds brought back instant nostalgia, while other new developments made us feel foreign in our past home. It was a strange and humbling experience to reflect upon where we’ve been, how we’ve evolved and where we hope to go in the future.


One thing that hadn’t changed about the city was the unique Southern charm and style of the people! Atlanta has such an energy that is truly its own. And the people don’t mess around when it comes to fashion y’all! I knew that going back down South for this trip, I had to come correct with my outfits!


For my first day out on the town, we spent time exploring our old neighborhood of Buckhead- doing some shopping, dining and afternoon champagne sipping. I love the weather there, because despite the crisp fall air, it was still as bright as can be! The sunshine lets you get away with transitional mini-dresses, and I thought this was the perfect time to wear a new favorite from Maje. I love a good fit-and-flare dress, and this one has a Parisian feel with its classic black and white combo, combined with a short and flirty length. This dress was just the inspiration I needed to break out a brand new pair of Stuart Weitzman boots! You may have seen me in the Highland, but this year I sprung for the AllLegs which go even higher on the thigh (ooh la la) with a slightly pointier toe. I think they’re so sexy, and I love them!


To go with my little French dress, I paired Chanel accessories (but of course!) and a red oversized blazer that I found at my local thrift store. You never know what treasures you can find!


I had such amazing trip and I hope to be back soon! But in the meantime, I can’t wait to wear this again back in New York… just maybe with some tights.


P.S. Maje is currently having their Friends & Family Sale. So if you like my dress, you can head there to find other goodies on sale!

Pre-Fall Musings



Even though we’re in the heart of Summer, I can’t help but look forward to Fall. I’m starting to see new colors like bordeaux, forest green, and navy fill my favorite stores, and I’m getting excited at the prospect of cooler weather, sweaters without the ‘sweat’, and of course – boots! Even though Fall isn’t here just yet, I’ve picked a couple transitional pieces that can take you from season to season with ease.


1. Free People. The Western trend has been big this year, especially this belt seen on hollywood it-girls like Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez. While I usually don’t have celeb-envy, I have to say that I love this adjustable, statement belt. I can see myself wearing it around a shirtdress, or pairing it with one of my graphic tees and a leather jacket in the fall. I also love the navy leather and rose gold buckles – I think it’s just a little bit more unique!


2. Zara.  Like I keep saying, give me a dramatic sleeve all day, every day. This powder blue Zara top is great for work with white jeans in the Summer months, or a dark jean and boot as the weather cools down.


3. Maje.  This skirt looks even more amazing in person. The scarlet color and the fringe are unstoppable.


4. Equipment.  I feel like this sweater is so playful with its all-over star print. But somehow, it doesn’t seem overwhelming. The neutral colors and the uber-soft cashmere will make this a cozy addition to my Fall wardrobe.


5. Rag & Bone.  I haven’t tried these in person, but something tells me these lace-up Rag & Bone jeans will be amazing! They remind me of a modernized version of the lace-up jeans that I owned in middled-school.


6. Chanel.  Gel manicures are an addiction of mine. Nothing compares to the high-shine you get with a great gel polish. I’m excited to try this Chanel topcoat which boasts the benefits of the gel manicure without the UV light.


7. Alexander Wang.  The must-haves boots! Ok, so I actually bought these already because I loved them so much. I’m obsessed with the rich brown suede, and the metallic cut-out in the heel. I can’t wait to wear these with both jeans and dresses in the Fall!


8. Jennifer Zeuner.  I’m really feeling this dainty, but oversized gold necklace. The shape instantly inspires thoughts of the 70’s and could easily glamorize any outfit. Plus, it even has a tiny stone inlaid that’s hidden to the naked eye!
