Constitution Marina

The cold shoulder trend has been pretty popular for quite a while now, so when I found this cute top (for under $20) before my trip to the East Coast I snatched it up! I love the combination of the ruffles, cold shoulders, and the fact that the shirt is pop-ver style at the top and can be buttoned or kept more open. It’s such a fun and unique piece and it’s become a new staple piece within my wardrobe!

Acorn Street

On my recent trip to Boston and Cape Cod I was awestruck by so much of the gorgeous architecture throughout both places, but one of the most picturesque spots that I saw, by far, was Acorn Street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston. Cobblestones, red brick, and window boxes; what more could a girl ask for?!

My Day with Dunkin’

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! Now that I’m post-grad, I’m working full time, but I still have “off” days which become the days that I end up doing the majority of my blog work, hanging out with friends, and spending time with family. For today’s post, I’m going to walk you through an average “off” day for me.



The first thing I do every morning when I wake up is check my social channels. I’ll also flip through all my inboxes and take note of any important emails that I need to respond to.
