February Finds


Tomorrow is March....holy cow! February was clearly making up for how slow January went by. Can't say I'm even mad about it one bit. It means we are one month closer to being done with winter and onto spring! 

I will have a little taste of spring next week as I am kicking off March by heading down to Florida for a few days! I am beyond excited to be escaping the cold and spend time with family. I am also planning on working on some fun spring content while down there, so stay tuned! 

Until then, here are my February Finds! Enjoy!

The Essentials You Need from the Shopbop Sale


It's safe to say that out of all the sales that happen all year long, the Shopbop sales are my favorite! In my opinion they are the best out there. Shopbop is one of my favorite retailers, so it's no surprise that their sale ranks at the top of my list. Their selection is top notch & some of my favorite pieces in my closet are those I have gotten through Shopbop (and often during a Shopbop sale!).

Doing Things that Scare You



They always say you should do one thing a day that scares you. In reality do we do that.. no, probably not, but imagine where we would all be at in our lives if we did. It's food for thought for sure.

Over the past eight or so months, I've done a number of things that I think could be considered scary. I taught my first spin class, which let me tell you was way more intimidating than I had at first thought. I left my job. A job that was a really, really good job. I ended a relationship because I wasn't ready to give up on my dreams. A relationship that had been a pretty steady constant for the majority of my late teens & early twenties. Ending any relationship is scary, but saying goodbye to your best friend is terrifying. And after almost 25 years of living in Connecticut, I moved to New York City. A move I had dreamt about making, but with any move, comes change, and with any change comes a little bit of uncertainty & in some way, shape, or form a little bit of fear.

My Favorite Resort Picks


Every year, this is one of my favorite posts to craft! By this time of year I am jonesing for a warm weather getaway & of course the wardrobe that accompanies it! Every time I peruse the new arrivals section of my favorite retailers, I can't help but be drawn to all the resort pieces. The bright colors, flowy fabrics, and rattan details have me swooning!

I am hoping to be heading down south for some much needed sunshine and warm weather in the next few weeks & all this resort wear is giving me so much inspo. My suitcase will be full of all the warm weather things and I cannot wait. I'm so ready for bathing suits and sundresses.. now all I need is a tan! Who wants to join me!?

2.14.19



In full transparency, I wasn't planning on writing any Valentine's Day posts this year. Not for any one reason in particular, but more because I just didn't have much to say. But I guess the universe had other plans in store for me, because today has been one of the best days...

This is the best Valentine's Day yet, and it's not even over. Oh, and did I mention that I am completely and utterly single. But despite my relationship status, and despite that I will not be getting dressed up to go out to some fancy dinner to celebrate with the love of my life, I am SO happy. All day long I haven't stopped feeling this overwhelming happiness and gratitude. 

As I was out running errands today, I couldn't stop smiling from ear to ear. Literally. People on the street, especially New Yorkers, probably thought I was crazy, or drunk in love. The truth is, I am a little drunk in love, but not in the expected way society defines that as. But instead, I am drunk in love with my life, and all the people in it, and all the things that bring me joy & happiness. 

And that is why today has been the best day ever.

February Wishlist



Every year come this point in winter, I start to gravitate towards lighter, brighter, more feminie pieces. I think it is a combination of being over wearing bulky, dark winter attire, and being so ready for spring! I cannot wait to ditch my winter wardrobe for pretty spring pieces, who's with me!? Anyone in the dead of winter still, can relate to how dreamy that sounds.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide


Happy February! I just can't help but think of and get excited for Valentine's Day when this month rolls around. I know that everyone has their own feelings and opinions related to this holiday, but it has always held a special place in my heart. At the end of the day, it's a day dedicated to love, all types of love, and to me that is something that should always be celebrated!
