Happy Sunday! A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of road tripping to Saratoga Springs, New York, with about 20 Boston bloggers. I'd never been to a horse race before this, so I was pretty excited to get dressed up in an obnoxious fascinator for a fun-filled day of drinks, betting and socializing. America's Best Racing and Centennial Farms provided us with not only a baller party bus, but a wonderful brunch at Fastig-Tipton, as well. Donald V. Little Jr., president of Centennial Farms and Jimmy Jerkens, trainer for Wicked Strong spoke as we sipped on bloody marys and ate some seriously delicious food.

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share a fun shoot I recently did for Gold West Vintage. If you haven't heard of the brand, they buy and sell beautiful vintage jewelry. Having worked at a vintage boutique in college, my love and appreciation for vintage has always been at an all time high. So, when I was asked to help with this shoot, I couldn't resist. Browsing the many pieces that Gold West Vintage has to offer was like going back in time. I've always loved vintage items because every piece has a story to tell. And even if it doesn't, you probably have a story of how acquired the piece.

CityPlace Summer Nights

Happy Sunday! It's no secret that maxi's have become a year-round staple. Whether you're covering up after a day at the beach, BBQing with friends or heading out to a rooftop soiree, maxi dresses and skirts always rise to the occasion. I've had this embroidered maxi dress from Alloy for several years, but only just wore it for the first time one night while I was in West Palm Beach. I think I've always been so hesistant to wear it for (very legitimate) fear of spilling red wine down the front of it. But, I mustered up some courage and decided to give it a go for dinner one night. (In case you're wondering, no spills occured)

Yacht City with Boutikey

Happy Sunday! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of getting together with some of my favorite Boston bloggers for a photo shoot with the Boston-based fashion app, Boutikey. (You may remember my last post about Boutikey's launch party back in June.) Each blogger was asked to create the perfect look for a yacht party from one of the many local Boston boutiques that participate on the app. I was lucky enough to be paired up with Ku De Ta and went with this beautiful little lace number. It was all business in the front and party in the back with a fun criss-cross. As for accessories, I especially loved the acrylic box purse and gold bangles for a simple statement.
