Halter Neck Fit And Flare

August 21st, 2018
Location  •   Wethersfield, Connecticut

I take my dress purchases very seriously and I often invest in pieces I know I’ll wear in my day to day life. With that being said, I usually find myself purchasing shift dresses, shirt dresses, and the occasional statement dress to have on hold come special events. Now since I wear statement dresses the least amount, I’m always hesitant about investing in a piece and often wait until they go on sale, to pull the trigger. So you can only imagine how excited I was when I saw this darling halter neck fit and flare dress go…

Home Runs, Feeling at Home and Camaraderie

August 20th, 2018
Location  •   Fenway Park

Camaraderie is one of my favorite words in the English dictionary, simply because it’s used to describe a variety of situations. It can be applied as an adjective to describe a college’s student body, or a verb to describe an ideal workplace attitude, OR simply a feeling of belonging. I mean, we all want to feel like we belong and make an impact, am I right? But the essence of camaraderie is much more than just being somewhere, it’s actually investing yourself in where you are and belonging to something bigger than yourself, like sports. Too many people watching…

  Whether you’re heading back to a college campus or having to decorate an entirely new space, like Matt and I will be doing very shortly; finding affordable home decor can seem like an endless journey.

A Weekend On Nantucket

August 15th, 2018
Location  •   Nantucket

A few weekends back, I had the opportunity to visit Nantucket for the first time, on a PR trip with Popsugar. To say I was ecstatic is an understatement, as I’ve missed out on a few previous trips to Nantucket due to timing, travel, and moving. Yet, somehow the timing on this last moment trip worked out perfectly and in a blink of an eye, I was driving to Hyannis to catch the ferry with Robbin. If you don’t follow Robbin, you should be here, she’s a New England content creator and also co-founder of RPR, an influencer management…

Finding Our First Home & The Architectural Styles We’re Considering

August 13th, 2018
Location  •   New England

Oh boy, it’s been a weekend. To recap, this past weekend Matt and I looked at over ten homes, wow; and while that may seem like A LOT or maybe it seems like NOT ENOUGH, we’ve definitely made progress in our house hunting predicament. Truth be told, we might even be close to wrapping it up, well at least the touring part. Now before I get too ahead of myself, let’s talk a little bit about the emotions that have gone into finding our first potential home, part one of many.  But before I get any further into this…

Visiting The Amalfi Coast

August 7th, 2018
Location  •   Amalfi Coast

This post is long overdue and that’s mostly my fault but by no means was it intentional, I promise. I wasn’t planning on taking a break from blogging while traveling but was forced to, due to the fact that the internet was almost non-existent on our 9-day European cruise. I mean, it took me twenty minutes to upload an Instagram, so you can only imagine how irritating it was trying to upload videos, blog posts and photos that we had captured day by day. Initially, we had planned to blog in real-time by covering the trip day by…

Weekend in Barcelona, Spain

July 27th, 2018
Location  •   Barcelona, Spain

Over the past ten days, my family, Matt and I have traveled all across Europe and have gotten just a taste of the rich history and culture this area of the world has to offer. Now I’m lucky enough to have visited many of these places prior to this trip, but we decided to kick off our trip with a location none of us had visited yet, Barcelona Spain. To be honest, it was nothing like I expected. The city facade was much more modern and artistic than other medieval cities I’ve visited in the past. I really…

Big News Along Side An Even Bigger Move…

Location  •   Dallas, TX

This post is the definition of a long time coming, and boy does it feel good to get this off my chest.  I wanted to tell you guys right away when Matt and I suddenly got the news of our move back in May, but there was still so much up in the air, and soooo many trips and events going on between then and now, that we put a pin in it. We figured we should hold off and make the announcement once we were officially moved out of our apartment in Dallas and back in Connecticut…

My Dream New England Beach House Town…

      I mean, I feel like this post would be a fun way to open up a very important conversation. This conversation topic is something I’ve methodically thought about over and over again until I knew my decision was certain. So here it goes, let’s discuss where you’d buy a New England beach house if the budget wasn’t an issue. Good question, right?   Okay, before we go down the rabbit hole and dig any deeper into this topic we need to discuss this gorgeous flutter sleeve shirt, I’m wearing. This blouse has to be one of the most…

Today marks the start of public access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which means it’s time to get a  jump start on revamping your fall wardrobe! Above I’ve pulled together some of my favorite looks and below I go into more detail about the styles, structures and how they fit into a New Englander’s winter wardrobe.  Season Staples    If you can buy two items and two items only, these would be the items I suggest putting into your online shopping cart. Both of these items I own personally and am actually repurchasing this year because, well frankly, winter is coming! …
