5 ‘Must Haves’ For Your Next Evening Night Out

I was invited to a wedding this past weekend and my getting-ready routine went a little something like this:
“OMG, I can’t find a nice bag! And what about my sandals?! And, dear goodness, what am I going to wear out over my shoulders?!”

After panicking for about 15 minutes (why do I leave things for last minute?) it dawned on me: I couldn’t really find anything because I didn’t really have anything. Ladies, just as we have our must-haves for daywear during all the different seasons, we, too, must have it for evening events!

I’ve rounded up a few starter “must-haves”; the choice is, obviously, ultimately yours, but make sure you have something you can easily (and quickly) pull out. Investing in some evening basics will make these evenings out so much more of a breeze and will be a great start to your oh-so-glam collection. So on that note, let’s get to it! Read more

The Wedding Cake House, ME

Yummy, yummy! If I could eat it, I definitely would (granted it would have to be lactose-free and maybe even gluten-free), but a girl can dream, right? The Wedding Cake House is said to be the most photographed home in the state of Maine and it is easy to see why: built in 1825 by a shipbuilder/sea captain who was inspired by the Gothic architecture he saw whilst in Milan, the home boasts beautiful details that seem like they came right out of an icing pouch!

New York Fashion Week with shopstyle social house

Ah! This has been one of my first true New York Fashion Week (NYFW) experiences and although it may be crazy, busy, and I’ve chased cabs & ubered on my phone like never before, I have to say, I can’t wait for next season! One of my highlights was attending Shop Style’s Social House event and getting to meet new vendors and bloggers! I had my outfit chosen prior to the event but failed to even think about the weather! Full disclosure: it was hot that day. My skirt was beautifully pleated (I am SO into pleats and this liquid, sheen touch to it!), but it was a little heavy for the 80+ degree weather, so I was dying a little. Nevertheless, you rock what you own, right?! Read more

Seeing Montreal from Up High

Exploring a city and wearing something that can take me from one activity to the next, seamlessly, is always a plus. I took on the challenge of wearing a bodysuit that is newly being deemed as leisurée, athleisure-meets-lingerie, and let it follow me from one adventure to the other as we continued to roam around Montreal. And you know what? It definitely kept up- from café to pool and everything inbetween. Read more

Old Montreal

Before we left to Montreal, I did tons of research on places to go and things to do. On the top of my list? Old Montreal. What, with its old-world charm, I just knew that was going to be my crème de la crème. So I resisted going there until towards the end of my trip. And could I resist temptation? Of course not.
