When Grant and I met, we dated long distance for several years. He lived in Kentucky, and I was here in NYC. I would visit his hometown in Kentucky on the weekends. One day, as he drove me around, I noticed a sign that said Versailles. “Hey, you brought me to France,” I teased. Little did I realize, that there’s a Versailles in Kentucky too. I was caught in a daydream, as we drove. Wouldn’t it be oh-so-lovely to visit Versailles in France together one day? It would be quite the dream.
We are at it again. New York Fashion Week kicks off this week. Designers and models take the runways, showcasing their latest collections, while crowds of fashionistas, editors and photographers take over New York City to check out the scene. Fancy soirées are planned to honor the celebration, and we spend a week straight dining on champagne and macarons. If you are lucky enough, you’ll find some real food.
Color combinations can be tricky, especially when piecing together your look. I don’t know about you, but I often have moments of hesitation. Does this color really work with this one? Ok, I’m not so sure, but can I make it work? When I’m creating my looks I stick to a few rules. Am I using a cool color palette or warm palette? Does the color look good with a contrasting hue, such as black? I try different options to see if they work, and usually photograph them as I go along. I always trust photos instead of my eyes.

All aboard! We have been invited on an adventure with Royal Caribbean, and are currently counting down the days before we set sail on their latest and greatest ship, the Anthem of the Seas. I’ve never been on a cruise before, so I’m excited for this one. With a boat full of a few of my blogger besties, fabulous food and fun activities, it should be quite the ride.
All black everything. I can only take it for so long. I begin the Fall season embracing the color, and by February, I want to cry. Sure, there are days when I feel amazing in a little black dress, or leather skirt, however after awhile it can feel like a uniform. If you’re like me, and you crave color, I’ve come up with a few great ensembles to lighten and brighten your fall wardrobe, while still looking appropriate for the season.
We just closed out a beautiful Fall weekend in NYC. The air feels crisp, the leaves are beginning to turn, and I can’t go anywhere without a warm cup of hazelnut coffee; mainly to keep my hands warm. We strolled through Central Park this weekend per usual, and as I looked up, the leaves fell from the trees and gracefully floated to the ground in an array of fall colors.
