Ring of Kerry And Travel Vlog

September 4th, 2017

Skirt || White Turtleneck || Vest || Belt || Lipstick || Hunter Boots  As I stated last week, when planning my first trip to Ireland, I had a vision of traveling up the Wild Atlantic Way. I knew I wanted to start in the south at the Ring of Kerry and make our way up to Galway, so I kept all of that in mind when booking hotels. Our first hotel we stayed at was probably our favorite, Sheen Falls Lodge right outside the town of Kenmare. The hotel was beautiful and had a relaxed country aesthetic, with a roaring fireplace and french toast…

Cobh Ireland and Travel Vlog

September 1st, 2017

J.Crew embroidered top (runs large so size down!) || Hunter Boots || Rain Jacket (color sold out, same brand listed)  || White Jeans || Bag I’m always grateful that my job allows Matt and myself, the opportunity and flexibility to travel. Recently Matt & I have been itching to visit Europe, specifically Italy, but our budget just couldn’t swing it…however one day I noticed flights from Hartford, CT to Kerry Ireland were just $325 so I took a deep breath and booked it.  I’ll admit booking my first trip to Europe was a little overwhelming, in terms of figuring out logistics and…

How to make long distance work

August 30th, 2017

Shirt || Skirt || Shoes || Necklace || Matt’s Sweater || Pants     Hey I’ve recently gotten a lot of readers reaching out about one topic specifically, how to make long distance work…in college. & oh have I been there, and done that. For anyone that doesn’t know, Matt (my long term boyfriend) and I have held a relationship for 8 years, HOWEVER, four of those years were via a long distance relationship. I actually attended college in San Diego while Matt attended college in New York, so I’m talking about cross-country long distance, OH BOY.    Before…

Pineapple Shorts in Aruba

April 25th, 2017

On the last day of vacation, Matt & I decided to get up at 5:00 am and watch the sunrise. I’ll admit this wasn’t an easy task for us to do, we had to set several alarms and still almost snoozed through the whole thing. Buttttt we tapped into our will power and rolled out of bed just in time aka 6:25 am, exactly an hour and twenty minutes after we should have been up.  All good though, because the timing worked out perfectly for picture taking, because the water was clear of swimmers, the sun was bright and hitting…

Romping Around Aruba

April 20th, 2017

I’m officially home from Aruba, but that is not going to stop me from sharing a final few looks with you all. While I was in Aruba, Matt and I spent most of our time on the beach or exploring the island.  So when I was considering what to pack for my vacation, I made sure to include rompers. I’m not kidding when I labeled this post romping around Aruba because I was literally wearing this Vineyard Vines romper ALL over Aruba. You guys, I’m not kidding when I say Vineyard Vines‘ spring line is basically my ideal…

Eating Healthy on Vacation

April 19th, 2017

I love food. & I’ve always loved food, I’ve never been a picky eater and often you’ll hear Matt telling people all the weird things I eat. I can remember my roommates in college laughing at me because I would literally eat a cucumber like a banana. I’d just peel it and eat the whole thing, as I walked around the apartment chatting. I’m really a lover of food and that will never change.  So when I travel, you’ll always see me eating the best that country has to offer. When I went to Italy, I literally ate a…

Currently on Island Time

April 16th, 2017

I have a love-hate relationship with ‘island time’. On one hand, I love having a cleared schedule, and absolutely nothing to do but take in the beauty of Aruba. Yet, on the other hand, I’m itching to grab my phone, find better cell reception and connect with you all.   When it comes to planning a tropical vacation, Matt & I split up our days. We either wake up at 6:30 am and shoot photos for TCC at sunrise, followed by hitting the beach or hit the beach in the morning and shoot images mid-day say 3ish.  …

Seersucker Blocked Dress

April 13th, 2017

 When Vineyard Vine’s announced that they’re the official style of The 2017 Kentucky Derby, I just about passed out! Anyone else on the same page?!  Matt & I have always dreamed of going to the Kentucky Derby, him for the betting and me for the clothes!  The Kentucky Derby is really 99.9% about the hats, so when I saw that VV also had hats, well I spent a good hour browsing the new collection. & while I currently don’t have plans to go to the Derby, aka I had no excuse to buy a hat, I did have an…

Serendipity: Mexico Instagram Recap

April 7th, 2015

{ flip flops on the boardwalk } { poolside fridays } { spring break 2015 } Hey Guys,  I am back & zen from a relaxing getaway in Cancun. Honestly though it was just a lot of sun bathing & food eating, but the food was soooo good. All I can think about is the ice cream bar and coconut milkshakes ( yum ). It was nice embracing the summer weather trends & wiggling back into my Jack Rogers. To sum Mexico  up…if you are looking for a fun good time & are of the ripe college age, Cancun is the place to…
