hawaiian honeymoon

I wanted to share a few of my pictures from our beautiful Hawaiian honeymoon.  We were lucky enough to visit three Hawaiian Islands, Oahu, Maui, and Kauai.  Each island kept getting more and more beautiful.  We ended on Kauai which was definitely my favorite island.  It was the most peaceful and remote with gorgeous beaches and beautiful, quiet,  little spots.  I think the pictures speak for themselves!   oahu1 honeymoon2 Walking around the hotel in Oahu early in the morning and taking a tour of Pearl Harbor.  Wearing Victoria’s Secret romper (similar), and Sam Edleman flats.

tie-dye luau attire

Lulu’s maxi dress (also love this & this one both on sale), Sam Edelman sandals, Gap clutch, Ray-ban sunglasses, Kendra Scott earrings 

I ordered this dress as a last minute purchase right before we left for our trip.  I was so excited to have it, since it was perfect for going to our first luau!  Maxi dresses were my favorite thing to wear on vacation (besides my bathing suits), and I loved the way this one was all open in the back.  The luau in Hawaii was a really fun experience.  You sit at a table with about eight other people, and it’s nice to get to chat with some other travelers.  It was also so interesting to learn about Hawaiian culture and see the show.  And of course, I loved any excuse to wear a lei.  Have a beautiful weekend! xo

Billabong dress, H&M bag, Shoemint wedges, Nordstrom B.P. glasses 

We spent the first two days of our honeymoon in Napa Valley California and absolutely loved it.  We really made the most of our 48 hours there, and I only wish we’d spent one more day.  The first night we went to dinner at the Restaurant at Meadowood and it was the 100%, hands down, the best meal I’ve ever had.  The next day we started our day at Oxbow Public Market which was such a cute little spot to shop and taste some different kinds of food.

Then we hit up as many wineries as we could.  It was so beautiful there and I loved tasting all the wine.  I definitely hope to go back one day!   napa2 napa3

catching up

Rdinner1

Hi all!  So happy to be playing catch up today here on the blog.  We’re officially married!  And back from the most amazing honeymoon in California and Hawaii.  I wanted to blog a little leading up to the wedding about how excited I was, but I was just so busy and wrapped up in all the last minute details.  Now that it’s all over, I can honestly it was the most wonderful, special, amazing day of my life.  Everything came together exactly how I imagined and I can’t wait to share some pictures after we get them back from our amazing photographer. There were so many DIY accents that I’d been planning for over a year and I couldn’t believe how perfect everything looked.  Celebrating with family and friends all weekend made Tommy and I feel so incredibly lucky.  Today I wanted to share some pictures one of my bridesmaids snapped during our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  It was so nice to see so many of our family and friends the night before and start the celebrations.  Tommy’s family threw us such a nice dinner and my mom put together a beautiful slide show of Tommy and I.  We knew each other for eight years before getting engaged so there were lots of memories to share.  Here are a few snaps of the special night.  I can’t wait to share some pics from the honeymoon later this week, so stay tuned! xo

FYI- At the rehearsal I was wearing a Black Halo dress (no longer available but they have a similar style here), Shoemint pumps, and Kendra Scott earrings.

Rdinner2 Arriving at the rehearsal… a little blurry shot but we were very excited.

Rdinner3 We got at married at the chapel at Manhattan College.  We both went to undergrad there and met there, so it was an extra special place for us.

Rdinner4 A quick practice walk with my grandpa down the isle.

Rdinner11 There are so many things I love about this picture, mainly seeing so many different people we love in one place, but also the sweet look on my grandma’s face.

And here is one little sneak peek of the wedding morning… Rdinner12

I mainly think this is so funny because I was so into trying new beauty treatments the month before the wedding, and was doing them up to the last minute.  Cucumbers on the eyes really does work to take down the puff!


printed pantsuit

pp2 Free People jumpsuit, Sole Society sandals, Nordstrom B.P. necklace and sunglasses, Target clutch 

I spotted this printed jumper in the window of Free People a few weeks back.  I was wandering through the mall eating fro-yo and ditched my snack so I could run in and try it on.  It’s the perfect casual, comfy one piece that still can be dressed up a bit.  I’m really into jumpsuits and rompers this season.  I love having a whole outfit in just one piece of clothing.  I also love these sandals I got on sale from Sole Society.  I was stocking up on cute flats for my honeymoon (next week-yay!) and these definitely fit the bill.  Have a great week everyone! xo

food & flea

foodandflea2

I love a good flea market but throw in some of the most amazing food trucks, and I love it even more.  Enter Long Island City food & flea.  Every Saturday in the summer months some great food vendors come together with some adorable little trinket stands and viola.  The perfect Saturday is born (at least in my book).

We go there pretty frequently since it’s so close to our apartment.  I’m always excited about the goodies I might discover or to sample a new yummy cuisine.  Here are some of my favorite shots from a few weekends back.  It’s definitely worth a trip to LIC on a sunny Saturday. xo

cropped scallops

cropped scallops Top Shop crop top, J.Crew pants (30% off with the code HISUMMER), Shoemint wedges, Banana Republc bag, Kendra Scott earrings, Dogeared & Gorjana necklaces 

I’m not sure when exactly the crop top started working its way back into my wardrobe.  I remember having a distinct conversation with my friends about three years ago, stating how I had aged out of my crop top stage of life.  I donated any mid-drift baring shirts that I had and called it a day.  Now that they’ve been popping up again, I’ve added a few back into my wardrobe.  The trick, (if you could call it that- it’s more just common sense) is high-waisted pants.  Really high pants hide the belly and show only a teeny sliver of skin.  This is something I can get on board with at twenty-eight, maybe even thirty.  As always it’s not what you wear, but how you wear it, that really matters.
