memorial day weekend sales roundup

memorial day weekend sales roundup

It seems like every week means a new sale in the retail world, but Memorial Day Weekend sales are actually pretty good! It can be hard to shop through all the sales (I always get overwhelmed when I walk into a mall and every store is on sale), so I've rounded up some of my favorite things on sale this weekend for you to shop through! Everything in this post is at least 50% off for this weekend, so you'll be saving a lot! I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend and have fun shopping!

summer wedding guest dresses under $200

summer wedding guest dresses under $200

It's almost summer, which means it's wedding season! Going to weddings can be really fun and exciting, but they can also be really expensive. Between your gifts and your attendance at pre-wedding get-togethers, you've probably already spent a lot of money before picking out something to wear the day-of. You could obviously just wear something you already have, but when it's such a rare and special occasion like the wedding of a close friend, most of us want to look good for the photos. In this post I've picked out some gorgeous dresses that are perfect for summer weddings of all kinds (from casual outdoor weddings to black tie affairs) but shouldn't make you go broke. You also get a sneak peek at the dress I'm hopefully wearing to my friend's wedding next month!

birthday in portland

birthday in portland

Hi guys! It's taken me a while to get this post together, but I was a little too busy just basking in the memories of the trip and holding onto the feeling of it all to actually get off my butt and write a blog post. Basically, Gerome semi-surprised me with a trip to Portland for my 23rd birthday! I say semi-surprised because I'm a little shit who kind of spoiled the surprise by calling him to say good night two nights before my birthday and then asking him why he sounded so shady. He confessed that he was mildly freaking out trying to get a birthday trip together for me, which I thought was adorable. I was glad I called because he almost booked a hotel in Portland, Oregon instead of Portland, Maine, which was the Portland he intended on taking me to. It was really sweet of him and an honest and well-meaning mistake because Portland, OR has one of the boutique hotels from a hotel chain I really like. We ended up picking a hotel in Maine together and wrapped up planning the logistics of the trip at 4am the day we left for it. This post has just a few of our photos from the trip and my thoughts about the experience. I hope you enjoy reading this post!

met gala 2017

met gala 2017

Let me start off this post by saying that this year's Met Gala was not my favorite. I thought that the theme, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between, had a lot of potential, but I think a lot of the guests had no idea what to do with that avant-garde dress code. However, I still appreciate the event and loved the chance to see what the best dressed people in fashion and entertainment would show up in on fashion's glitziest night. It would be really cool if one of my local art museums had as robust of a fashion department as the Met, and I would totally respect them if they needed to throw a big fundraiser gala every year to raise money for it. In this post I'm rounding up all my favorite looks from the Met Gala - let me know if you share any of my favorites!

april favorites

Hey guys, happy May! The year seems to be going by in a blur, so it feels really weird that I'm doing an April favorites when I still haven't gotten used to writing "2017" when filling in dates. I just turned 23 at the end of April, so I definitely treated myself to lots of things and experiences in an attempt to enjoy my last month of being 22 as much as possible. This month I want to blog way more than I did in April, so here's a favorites post to start the month off. I hope you enjoy it!

world's end

On Marathon Monday, Gerome and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Boston Marathon since it was such a beautiful spring day. We ended up driving to World's End, which is a gorgeous park and shoreline in Hingham, Massachusetts owned and maintained by The Trustees. Keep reading to see photos of our fun little day trip (my outfit details are also listed somewhere in the middle of this post if you're curious)!
