STYLE | The Go-To Dress

I bought this Zara dress one day when I had nothing to wear. Literally. All of my clothes had been packed for the move, and I found out I had a huge meeting the next day. So I ran into Zara and bought the dress with every intention of bringing it back…and then I tried […]

BEAUTY | My Favorite Perfumes Right Now

I’ve decided a woman is never really dressed until she puts on perfume. It’s the icing on the cake, that extra “oomph” to take you from walking through the door to making an entrance. I can never have enough perfume. I’ve tried to choose a signature scent (several times), but I like having more than one […]

BEAUTY | Keeping it Straight

After spending most of this Summer in protective two-strand twists, I was eager to straighten my hair for my wedding. After getting back to NYC, I realized I wasn’t quite ready to go back to wearing twists every single week, so I’m planning on keeping my natural hair straight for now. Heat styling makes most of […]

STYLE | BLACK OXFORD BOOTIES

It feels great to be blogging again! And it also feels good to spend money on things that aren’t wedding-related! I was just getting into the Fall shopping spirit when I purchased these beautiful booties. I wore them for the first time to work on Monday and I seriously love them. Just look at that woven leather! […]

INSTAGRAMMED // WEDDING SNAPS

Well, we did it! Q and I tied the knot on October 11th in a really amazing, pleasant, perfect ceremony. Everything went so much better than we anticipated. I still find myself feeling so unworthy of the beauty of that day! We had PERFECT weather, we were surrounded by so many loving family members and […]

MUSINGS // On Fashion Collabs

m4s0n501   The new Altazurra for Target collaboration dropped yesterday. You’ll notice I never even mentioned it on the blog. Sure, there was a time when I woke up early on Sunday morning and headed to Target.com to shop the latest designer collaboration. I’ve shopped quite a few of them, and I’ve shared my finds on the blog. […]

STYLE | THE FALL TRANSITION MAXI DRESS

Amazingly enough, I’ve only worn this maxi dress on the blog once, but it’s one of my favorite pieces, and I try to wear it every chance I get. It is perfectly simple, super lightweight and has beautiful movement. It isn’t my most form-fitting dress, but the high side splits and low, open back definitely make […]

Goodbye, Summer

Me wearing my favorite summer hairstyle…Marley twists! Summer isn’t “officially” over yet, but it may as well be for me. I’m already feeling the newness of Fall. Something about the cooler days and crisp nights make me feel so primed for fresh opportunities. It’s like another chance to start over and make the most of the […]

LIFE | OUR BROOKLYN BRIDGE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

On the day Quentin and I set out to have our engagement photos taken, everything that could have gone wrong did just that. It was such a terrible day. We had traffic getting to Brooklyn and I lost my dress (it has since been found, packed away with my winter clothes!), so I had to […]

LIFE | BRIDAL SHOWER PHOTOS

One of the best things about being engaged has been all the opportunities to celebrate with family and friends. My BFFs hosted my bridal shower over Memorial Day Weekend, and I had such a nice time laughing and catching up and celebrating with friends from high school and college, women from church who’ve known me […]

STYLE | BANDEAU AND PENCIL SKIRT

One thing I love about being back in South Florida is that I can wear things there that I can’t wear anything else. I can blame wearing short shorts and bra tops on the high heat and humidity. It’s perfectly appropriate to style a bandeau and pencil skirt for an end-of-the-bachelorette brunch with the girls when […]

LIFE | BEACHY BACHELORETTE

It’s good to be back. I took some time off from blogging this month to focus on wedding planning and some new life goals. Quentin and I have started pre-marital counseling and we’ve been seeing a financial planner (two things I HIGHLY recommend doing if you’re currently engaged), and I’ve been devoting a lot of headspace […]

BEAUTY | MISSING MY MESSY CURLY FRO

I feel like I’ve been wearing a protective style FOREVER. It’s been two weeks since I’ve been wearing my Marley twists, and before that, I had started a hyper-intensive protective styling regimen: twists EVERY WEEK (Monday-Thursday) and a Curlformer set on the weekends (Friday-Sunday). My hair is always twisted up and away, all in the […]

PORTFOLIO | ALICIA

This weekend I took a chance on myself and decided to put myself out there for a limited amount of freelance work (my services are on my Contact // Hire Me page!) One of the projects I think I’ll really enjoy is taking outfit photos for style and fashion bloggers in the New York City […]

STYLE | A Beach and a Lighthouse

I finally made it to the beach. Even with all my back-and-forths to South Florida to plan my wedding, I haven’t made it to the beach. Not one time! So I was more than happy to head out to Fire Island this weekend to celebrate Ty‘s birthday. It looks like Nantucket, or at least what […]

INSTAGRAMMED // My Hectic Summer

This summer has been busy, but I feel like I really haven’t done much. At least not a lot of “fun” stuff. I’ve been spending A LOT of time working, including some weekends. And last week, Q and I were in Florida doing some major wedding planning (which is why you haven’t heard from me!) […]
