Nashville Murals

Hey y’all! I’ve been MIA the past month on here, but that is about to change. My favorite season is fall, and I plan on hitting the ground running with fun content starting NOW. I don’t have an exact schedule set yet, but I should be posting a lot more. I have a lot of ideas for things to do coming up, and I’m really looking forward to adventuring and posting about it. So without further ado, here’s my first post back!

At the beginning of this month, I went with my best friend to Nashville Tennessee. This is the first of two posts about our trip. This one is going to be almost entirely a photo gallery, while the other will be a list of thing to do in Nashville.


Look 1: choker, sweater tank, slide sandals,  striped pants ,    ,

Look 2: linen midi dress, wayfarers

That’s all for today, folks! Keep an eye out for my next Nashville post.

Looks I’m Loving

This spring, I was sitting at my laptop in class (during my last semester of college) getting excited for summer. I planned out this whole list of things I wanted to buy and things I wanted to do. (You know–the usual bucket list idea but with many links to sunglasses.) By no means have I kept to this list faithfully, but I have used it as an inspiration board of sorts. Heck, this blog came out of it!

And now that it’s here, this summer has been full of some of my favorite trends of all time. So I thought I’d do a list of some of those styles that I’ve been obsessing over for the past few months. I hope someone agrees with me on this list or feels inspired to try something new.

  1. Linen everything
  2. Straw/basket bags –> see my new teeny one here
  3. Little scarves worn as neckerchiefs, around topknots, or as headbands as I did below
  4. Poppy or red-orange –> In the photos below, I’m wearing Stila’s balm lipstick in Valentina (which is on super sale right now. I SO recommend this product. I want it in more colors now.)
  5. Butter yellow
  6. Espadrilles –> see my new striped flats here
  7. Cullottes
  8. Overalls in all shapes and forms
  9. Jumpsuits
  10. Slide sandals
  11. Blouses that wrap/tie –> as evidenced by this Pinterest board
  12. Hardly any makeup –> In these pictures, I’m wearing mascara and the Stila lipbalm, but otherwise I have a naked face. It feels really good to let my skin breathe. Lately, I’ve been lazy and unmotivated some days and too hot to want to have foundation melt off my face other days, but it’s ended up the same way–my naked skin. There are days where I’m insecure about my dark under-eyes or redness around my mouth, but overall, I feel comfortable in my naked face.

Now for my Americana look we shot in Rockport the other day: Gap overalls (currently sold out), lipcolor, Longchamp, sunglasses, Adidas, scarf, ballet tee


A Concord Afternoon

The other day, my mom and I spent a very hot afternoon in the center of Concord, MA. Concord is the cutest town–full of ivy-covered brick buildings, old farmhouses, blooming bushes, and darling antique shops. Every time I’m there, it feels like I should stay forever.

We poked into sweet little boutiques and ate the yummiest lunch at this restaurant. And oh my goodness, go go GO Go GO. It was so yummy! We split this amazing meatball grilled cheese, beautiful watermelon salad, and refreshing peach Italian soda. I’m still thinking about the grilled cheese. They’re easily one of my favorite foods. I crave them just about everyday, and it takes just about all my willpower to not eat them all the time.

I wore an Old Navy off-the-shoulder dress with a messy topknot, my new espadrilles from Nordstrom, these fun daisy sunnies from Lord & Taylor, and this matte lipstick in Carina by Stila.
On our way home from lunch and window shopping, we stopped by Bedford Farms to get ice cream because it was National Ice Cream Day? I don’t think that’s a real thing, but it made for a yummy treat and a cute Snapchat post. There’s something so summery and New England-y about a soft serve twist with “jimmies” on it.

Peep my sweet mama in my shades!




There’s no glamorous way to eat a melting ice cream cone
