Summer Dreams

As I mentioned on Instagram the other day, clearly I haven't been keeping the promise I made myself at the beginning of 2017. I love knowing that my blog is a place for style inspiration or Disney Wedding planning tips, but it's also a source of creative release for me and I'm saddened that I haven't kept my word.

How To: Scarf Headband

I knew it's been a while since I had posted last and I'm so sorry! Between changing jobs (yay!) and being away for two weekends straight, it's a wonder I can still keep my days straight. But thanks to a certain special lady (ahem, Carlye Wisel - if you love Disney and don't follow her on social, you should consider changing that) I wanted to share how you can use a 90cm silk scarf into a headband.

Well, Spring is finally here in NYC. And I can't complain! Despite having purchased a new down jacket (it was 50% off!) I am completely, one hundred percent ready for warmer weather. But with warmer weather comes a new dilemma: transition pieces.

New York is slowly starting to get its warm-weather act together. I mean, it's been officially Spring for like a week now! But before the Winter chill officially goes away, I wanted to share this one last winter-y look.

Versatility

I love pieces that you can style through different seasons – I don't like bringing pieces into my closet that I can only wear for a couple months out of the year. That being said, one of the hardest things about living on the East Coast is the Winter. I have all these really cute summer dresses and tops that just sit in my closet, all sad and wrinkly. Something I started doing this winter is introducing these pieces into my winter outfits as well.

Fifty Shades

Much of my winter wardrobe consists of darker colors and you can only wear all black so many times before people start wondering to themselves "Is she wearing the same thing everyday?"

Down on The West Coast

We don't get snow.

No, really. I think the only time I saw snow was the one time we went up to Mount Charleston when I was under the age of 10. And the one time it snowed in 2008. I know that sounds crazy to some of you. It also sounds crazy to me, considering that I've survived a couple blizzards and two polar vortexes now. It's hard to remember a time where snow wasn't a part of my life every year.

I'm a little late, but happy New Year! Everyone usually recaps their year before the start of the new one, but I'm a little rebellious. Kidding. I'm actually just incredibly lazy and fall asleep by 10 on weekdays. Regardless, I wanted to recap 2016 and put down in writing what I want to achieve in 2017.
