Spring is finally here…#celebrationstation! Although, it doesn’t feel like it in NYC, you may be out and about shopping for an upcoming Spring vacation. I’ve been running around the city, doing the same. However, I’ll admit, that I’ve found it quite the challenge to find a great selection of swimwear while shopping the stores this week. It’s definitely been frustrating, as I’m running out of time. Lucky for you, I’ve found a fabulous selection of swimwear pieces for you to order online.
One chilly evening, I peeked out the window to see tiny, white snowflakes, gently falling to the ground. That particular weekend felt chaotic to me, with no sense of slowing down anytime soon. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in projects. I’ll admit that there are days when I have a love/hate relationship with the city. There are moments when it’s loud and crazy, with honking horns and stories that you can’t quite make up. Then there are those sunny Sundays in the fall. The air is crisp, and the leaves burst with color. The city is quiet, and I remember why I fell in love with New York City.

What do you pack for an epic adventure on Royal Caribbean’s fancy new ship? I had no idea. I was mind boggled, and entirely overwhelmed with every activity and excursion planned for the trip. Add the Fall theme, but 70 degree New York temps into the mix, and my fall packing plans were thrown for a loop. I hope you read up on my previous posts, chatting about our fancy trip aboard Anthem of the Seas. If not, you can play catch up, here.
Hello printed paradise! I absolutely cannot tear myself away from prints this season. I think it’s safe to say this printed obsession of mine comes around every spring. I realized this last year, when a few girls in my office laughed because I wore, yet again another printed dress to work. I gravitate towards florals, however this brilliant Arena Dress, by Trina Turk instantly caught my eye. The simplicity of the silhouette, allows for the stunning, colorful print to shine.
This weekend’s sunshine in NYC, had me anxiously shopping for new additions to my spring wardrobe. I love sunny afternoons in the city, wandering from store to store through my favorite neighborhoods, with no real agenda but to enjoy the day. Every day of my work week is scheduled basically to the minute, and although I love being busy, I do find peace in quiet moments by myself.
Spring has sprung and it’s time to celebrate! As I peruse my closet, I wonder what I really wore last spring. I’m definitely ready for a whole new, fancy wardrobe and I hope you are too. I took the liberty of finding some pieces that inspire me, and I that I think you’ll love as well. The pastel colors are just perfect for the season. I’m also loving bright brilliant colors as well as intricate prints. I have an accessory obsession, so you’ll find a few fun pieces to play with. Happy shopping, Beauties! xx

We are back in my hometown of Amherst, Ohio for a quick family visit. Coming back to the town where I grew up brings back so many childhood memories. Amherst is a small, charming town with cute shops, fun little restaurants, and friendly people. I always feel such a difference arriving here from the big city. It takes me about a day to adjust to the pace of my days here, but I find it calming and therapeutic. One of the things I love most is the watching the change of seasons. Right now, the trees are bursting with beautiful, fall colors, and the air feels crisp. I can even smell the change in the season. During our visit, we celebrated my mom’s birthday, toasted with champagne, and enjoyed being together. The happiness of home, and the love of family makes me feel complete.
