Leather & leopard

 dress: Asos | shoes: Alice & Olivia (similar, similar) | bag: Chanel (vintage here & here) | sunglasses: Prada (similar, similar) | lipstick: Chanel-Passion





Happy Tuesday everyone! By the time you read this I'm already half way around the world. Actually not really... I'm probably in Chicago with a 3 hour layover!  I'm packing my laptop, an on-the-go charger for my iPhone and a book to help kill time but if you happen to be at the Chicago airport today, come say hi! Otherwise "see" you all in two weeks. (Or follow my adventures on Instagram or Facebook!) Have a great week everyone.

Easy Sunday





dress: Urban Outfitters (similar, similar) |  shoes: Prada (similar, similar) | sunglasses: Betsey Johnson (similar, similar)

Maxi dresses are my favorite thing to wear in the summer. I scored this one from Urban Outfitters on super sale for $20! Unfortunately, it's from a few summers ago, but I found similar styles you might like below.

Saratoga

dress: Asos (borrowed from Jean)(similar) | shoes: Asos | hat: Finchy Baby Hats c/o | bag: Prada (similar)| bracelets: David Yurman (pearl & onyx) | lipstick: Nars-Schiap

Last Saturday, a few fellow Boston bloggers and I took a road trip to Saratoga, NY for a day at the races, courtesy of America’s Best Racing & Centennial Farms. I have family in the area and having been to the tracks before, I was really excited to go back.





with Georgina, Katherine, Laura & Jean

For me, the best part of the trip was getting to wear something fun. I have plenty of fascinators & hats saved from my Kentucky Derby themed bridal shower but wanted a little something more over the top. I found this hat on Etsy by Finchy Baby Hats and it couldn't be more perfect for the occasion. It has the right amount of drama and fun!



Although I left with a lighter wallet, the fun filled day made up for the losses.

Travel essentials




1 class and 5 days left before I'm off to Hong Kong & Singapore! I have so much school work to do but all I can think about is the trip. It'll be my first time to both places and I can't thank you all enough for the recommendations!
