Devon Baer Fall Collection

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I purchased my first Devon Baer top for Christmas last year and love it. I'm pretty sure I'll wear it every Christmas Eve from now on. Her Fall collection is available for pre-order, and I'm loving these stunning tops for Holidays, dinner nights, birthdays, and special occasions.




Waverly Inn

A's younger brother visited us this weekend so we headed to the Waverly Inn for dinner on Friday night. The Waverly Inn is a famous tavern in the West Village. No photography is allowed inside, but there are some pictures of the amazing space online. At night, it's very dark inside and you can just barely catch glimpses of all the amazing architecture, detailed fire places, and murals on the wall. It's a very cozy experience, and I highly recommend the chicken pot pie. Incredible!

J.Crew Fall New Arrivals

When I moved to NYC last Fall, I definitely went crazy at J.Crew. There was some major sweater and coat ordering going on! This Fall, I'm pretty good to go, but I have my eyes on a few of these pretty silk tops.

Ps: I ordered the long version of this coat last year and love it! If you're in a slightly warmer climate I would definitely suggest the new shorter version.

Happy Birthday CM!

CM has been one of my best friends since the first grade. She is such a wonderful, funny, and kind person and an amazing friend. Not to mention, she is super fashionable!Today, I'm wishing her an amazing birthday. Wish I could be there! So instead, I'm sharing some pictures of us over the years.

First grade Halloween party!

Visiting each other at our respective colleges (this was during my spray tan phase!)



Complaining about how hard our first internships were (hahahah)


Enjoying the Foxfield Races


Lamenting over graduation!


And finally, still getting to see each other even though we live a few hours away!

What I'm Loving

If I didn't live in an apartment and had all the space in the world, I love the idea of doing a combined closet and office space. I think it's every girly girls dream.

Pink Peonies
The older I get, the more and more I realize that I really dislike trendy things. Maybe I'm boring and 85 at heart (which is entirely possible), but I love me some neutrals and classic accessories and that's about it. However, I love a pop of leopard now and then and these fun Kate Spade jeans I found through Live, Laugh, & Shop spoke to me. I'm picturing them with black flats and a silk top for work, a sweater for weekends, or dressed up with great heels.

I've become obsessed with SweetGreen's new August salad. It's peaches, almonds, goat cheese, and spinach all mixed up in a delicious balsamic vinaigrette. So good! Plus, the SweetGreen in NoMad is a great spot to check out people's outfits. 


Margaritas. I know Summer is almost over and it's no longer margarita season, but they still remain my favorite mixed drink. I'm much more of a wine person and am notorious for ordering a cocktail and only having two sips. I was happy to enjoy some at Dos Caminos with friends this week. 


Finally, I have a confession. I did not buy one thing from the Lilly endless sale. Why? Well, not many people wear Lilly in the city. I still wear Lilly; Elsas with white jeans, a murfee scarf with a blazer, and the occasional sundress. However, I'm no longer in a place where everyone in my sorority is getting the latest print or where wearing brightly patterned Callahan shorts to dinner is considered appropriate.  I love Lilly and will always love incorporating it into my style, however, for now I think I have enough pieces. 

What are your favorite things? Have you changed elements of your style when moving to a different city?

Lilly Pulitzer's Grandson Weds

Did anyone see the  Town & Country spread on the wedding of Lilly Pulitzer's grandson? The wedding was very casual but still chic and looked like so much fun!


Entryway Styling

I have yet to style our apartment's narrow entryway. For awhile, A kept his shoes stored there and after much protest from me, they have since been moved haha. I'm thinking something simple as not to get in the way of our coming and going, but still elegant. I love the idea of a lucite table with a mirror above, ottomans below, and a catch all tray for our keys and such. Here's some images inspiring me:
