The foliage this fall has been beyond spectacular. The beautiful red, brown and golden leaves have been inspiring me with their rich colors, these glowing yellow leaves right outside my apartment make me want to be surrounded by gold all day.
Thanks to Ali for quickly snapping these pics before the sun disspeared. Follow her on Insatgram- she’s the best @alivilla.
Its that time of year, where you have to pile of the layers just to step out the door! I personally love this time of year because I love cold weather clothing, coats, gloves, scarves and of course sweaters! Sweaters are basically personal blankets we can wear in public, so why not get yourself a few cute ones! I have gone a little crazy shopping for sweaters this year, but a girl needs options right? Here is a round up of 4 sweaters from Dynamite that I love for the chilly weather, they would make lovely gifts too for the holidays.
Fall and plaid are two things that just go so perfectly. Everyones gone mad for the pattern this season, myself included. Its such a nostalgic print that is so easy to just throw on. I found this dress while thrifting with Ali, its actually school dress, I found it in the teen school uniform section. Don’t neglect the random sections of the thirft store, you never know what deals you will find, this dress was only $2.99! Another essential for fall 2014 is over the knee boots, I am happy I finally found a pair of suedey flat boots that I can wear everyday without falling into “Pretty Women” territory.
I hope everyone is having a lovely fall and enjoying the beautiful colorful foliage outside… while wearing plaid… and drinking pumpkin spiced lattes… and jumping in piles of leaves! xo

Hi all! You may or may not have noticed that my blog has been down for a little while. It was all due to domain and hosting issues that have just been resolved. But yes I did have a momentary mental breakdown at the thought of everything from the past year being lost, a blog can act as a sort-of travel/style/life journal that can be really fun and useful to look back on. But everything is back and running normally- yay! I’ve got lots of new photography projects and fun things to do in NYC and DC coming up, so stay tuned. PS. Thanks to everyone who texted, tweeted and emailed me asking me about my blog, its nice to know people care XO.
I leave you with pics of myself, in the country, hanging with possibly the best thrifting find that my friend Ali and I found last year, the most amazing cat and kitten pillow that chills on the backseat of her car.
I would like you to meet, The Olivia Bootie! The perfectly on trend buckle bootie designed by the blogger Olivia Lopez of Lust for Life. I promise you that this is one of the most comfortable pairs of heeled boots I have ever worn. Not to mention one of the cutest!
I thought I would share a few snaps from my interview with killer shoe brand Madison Harding. They asked me a few questions on all the important things in life; like shoes, blogging and taking a good photo. I always have so much fun playing dress up with their gorgeous shoes, thanks for choosing to profile me MH! Click here to view the full interview.
I had so much fun co-hosting the She & Reverie event in Williamsburg with the darlings “Rachel et Nicole” and mega beauty blogger Rachel Martino. The oh-so-sweet brand threw a super cute backyard style party with Small Girls PR, complete with everything girls love. We all got to get a sneak peek at the new gorgeous lingerie inspired She & Reverie collection from designer Quinne Myers plus sip delicious cocktails (with ice cream in them!) from Brooklyn Pharmacy & Soda Fountain and the best arts and crafts area where you could DIY flower crowns and dream catchers. What more could a girl want!? There were even glittery cupcakes!
Hello Fall! So nice to see you! I have been eagerly waiting your arrival…
One of my most loved things about living in America is that you get all 4 seasons. And fall is my absolute favorite. Yes, because of the beautiful changing of the leaves, but mostly because you get to wear jackets and boots again! I’ve been running around like mad recently so I have been opting for comfy cool outfits, the sports luxe trend is perfect for that. I don’t suit the sporty look head to toe, it just looks silly on me. So I like to mix on one sportswear piece with my go to wardrobe items like tank tops and moto jackets. These pants from Mystique Boutique are so easy to wear and have the cutest quilted black contrast pockets.
Also HUGE SHOUT OUT to my bestie Josh who gave me the best birthday present known to mankind, THE Stella McCartney Falabella bag. I have been lusting after this Stella chain bag since I first saw it and cant believe I now have one. Thank you Josh, for being the best friend ever! Seriously. I am one lucky girl.
