This type of look is a go-to for me for a night out. High waisted jeans, tall boots or booties, a tucked blouse, and a leather jacket. Chic, comfortable, and timeless. You can even dress it up with jewelry or heels, maybe a sequin blazer.

I have naturally curly and frizzy, very thick hair. Even as a hairstylist (in training), I find it difficult to blow out my own hair. When I want my hair to embody Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show hair, I turn to my Babyliss 1 1/4 inch curling iron. I can take it over my natural hair and it still looks shiny and smooth, with the right products of course.

Shirt: ASOS Curve

Pants: New Look

Boots: Torrid

Jacket: Primark

Earrings: H&M

My earrings are hard to see, but I love them! They’re about 2 inches of a simple, thin gold chain with a tiny, little fake diamond at the end. They are so subtle and classic and, as with this outfit, can be dressed up or down!

A Day in New Hampshire

This fall, Mike and I took a ride up to New Hampshire one Sunday. On a street corner in the middle of the mountains was a farm stand selling fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Do you see the size of those carrots? That potato? The corn sweet and crisp. These were, hands down, some of the best farmstead veggies I had ever gotten. I used most of the content of this box to make an Irish beef and Guinness stew.

Recipe to come.

Growing up in New Jersey with a family primarily from Brooklyn, going to the mountains wasn’t really a thing. We didn’t ski, we didn’t do any other winter sports so we never made the trip. It wasn’t until I met Mike that I went up to the mountains in New England for the first time. At first I was nervous and skeptical (ridiculous I know). I soon fell in love with the peaceful and airy surroundings and the views that go on for miles and miles. Now, I’m the one poking Mike begging to take a drive up there, especially in the fall. The Kancamangus Highway and Mohawk Trail two of our favorite spots to cruise on a sunny Sunday.

there's always time for a cannoli

I escaped today for about an hour for the first time in days. The weather was beautiful, the city was quiet, and who doesn’t love an excuse to dress up and get a cannoli from Mike’s Pastry? This is one of my absolute favorite dresses. It has the slightest bit of weight to the fabric, perfect for the days when we’re not sure what the weather is going to do. I paired this perfect dress from ASOS with a belt around the waist and white leather booties, both from Torrid.

florals? for spring? groundbreaking

Does OOTD still work if its a throwback? Serving you some Wednesday Addams, Moira Rose realness! My bag is from Amazon! I was very into the Longchamp trend, but couldn’t quite afford it. When I found this gem I was so excited! Leather jacket and dress from New Look, earrings are from H&M, scarf from Old Navy, boots from Torrid, and sunglasses from a stand at the mall (lol). And for my lip? A classic red always does the trick and my personal favorite is Ruby Woo from Mac. I’ve been wearing this red since high school and I truly don’t think I’ll ever stop.
