It's actually somewhat cold down here in Tampa (by which I mean mid-sixties), so I finally got to break out one of my favorite new jackets.

Finding My Dress // Truvelle Wedding Dresses

Monday, January 19, 2015

Finding the perfect dress!

Just because Trevor and I just got engaged doesn't mean that I haven't been looking at wedding dresses for a while. Hey, I can't control what comes up on Tumblr or Pinterest. It was through those two sites that I found the wedding dress designer Truvelle.

Gym Journal: How to Set Smart Goals for Yourself in 2015

Thursday, January 15, 2015

It's January, which means that every is setting resolutions to lose weight, eat better, and live healthier. But how many of us set resolutions, only to give up on them by the time Valentine's Day rolls around? We need to stop setting idealistic goals and start setting smart goals.

Monday Must-Have: Tory Burch Emerson Flap Messenger

Monday, January 12, 2015

There is a reason I don't like being on e-mail lists. Okay, there are two. The first is, of course, that I get inundated with emails that are usually of no use to me. The second is that every once in a while, I will get an email from a store or brand I love with something I have to have. Today was such a case. 

I got an email today from Tory Burch about the new Emerson collection. The collection is filled with the clean lines and timeless silhouettes that Tory us known for. But the bag above is what really caught my eye! I have a major thing for oversize clutches right now (as seen here and here). These are classic with a little dash of modern. The only problem is choosing a color!

Sunday in the Park

Sunday, January 11, 2015

Today was such a beautiful day, Trevor and I couldn't stand to stay inside. I'm deep in the midst of planning summer camp, and one of our possible field trip destinations is Waterworks Park, so we decided to take advantage of the warmth and sunshine and go check it out. 

Instagram Round Up: My Year in Review (Part 2)

Saturday, January 10, 2015

August 31, 2014 - Back to New York for the second time in a month! I got to see my favorite painting in person, which was an amazing experience. We went up to Syracuse for a day to watch my friends Emily and Ryan get married. It was a gorge ceremony and reception! Can't wait for my own wedding!

September 21, 2014 - Trevor's birthday weekend! Left to right: his friend, Dan, his sister, Dejah, my babe, me, and Dan's baby momma. Glasses gang.

November 7, 2014 - I took a crazy risk and drove around the southeast US by myself! Atlanta, Charlotte, Asheville, Nashville, and Birmingham! It was so much fun and I learned a lot about myself. I climbed a mountain. I got lost about four times in areas with no service. I got to see my family and friends. I photographed one of my best friends getting engaged. It was a fantastic week. 

December 26, 2014 - Christmas in New York with Trevor and his family. We got to see the Rockettes. I used to love watching them when I was little, so it was really cool to see them live. I just wish it had snowed! 

Those are just a few of the biggest moments of my year! Follow along on Instagram for more!

I'm still finding it hard to believe that I'm engaged to the man of my dreams. I know, I know it sounds cliche, but he and I are perfect for each other (though we are not perfect). I keep looking down and seeing this gorgeous ring on my finger and it's still giving me butterflies!

Instagram Roundup: My Year in Review (Part 1)

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

It's been quite a year! Looking back, I can't believe everything that happened! Here's a quick peek at the first half of the year!

January 1, 2014 - Rang in New Years with my best friend, Carly. My hair was super short and red. We partied on a roof in Gainesville. Carly and I drunkenly pretended to cast Harry Potter spells with sparklers. Trevor and I shared our first kiss at midnight. All in all, one of the best nights of the year. 

The New Classics

Sunday, January 4, 2015

There are a few things that never go out of style, but that do get updated every season. Neutral ballet flats, denim shirts, polka dots, and a classic black cross body are just a few of my favorites. Update your white jeans with some distressing, and make your clutch oversized for a modern twist on some old favorites. 

How do you keep your look timeless and modern? Let me know in the comments! 

I Said YES!
