Holy smokes, November is flying by!! Thanksgiving is already next week and my heart is so grateful that I get to visit my family in Michigan. This is the first time I’ve been home for Thanksgiving in three years and I’m pretty sure the first time that all my siblings (there are 6 of us) will be together since last Christmas! I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving in my family usually consists of watching the parade, getting egg-nog drunk and only tearing myself off of the sofa when dinner is ready. So here enters: a cute-but-SUPER-casual outfit for Thanksgiving – or any chill event during the holiday season!
After sharing my Fall Decor Update, I got a lot of questions about apartment hunting in NYC. The idea of writing this blog post seemed extremely daunting, but then again – so is finding a place to call home here in the city. I am definitely not an expert on this topic, but I’ve certainly had my fair share of wins (and total losses) when it comes to dealing with roommates, brokers and everything in between.
So, without further ado, here are 6 things I wish I knew when I was apartment hunting:
Nothing beats a good sale and SO many of my favorite fall pieces are on markdown this weekend. Shop my favorite picks below!

The cold weather has officially welcomed itself into our lives – well, at least in NYC (and rumor has it Michigan had a Halloween snowfall, too – per usual). Does anyone else hate being cold?! As soon as I feel a chill in the air, I know it’s time to break out my favorite cozy pieces. Queue the hot chocolate, hoodies and christmas music!
To help you guys stay cozy too, I’ve rounded up the best-of-the-best (and most affordable) cozy pieces that will definitely make your life at least 10x better:
After 4+ years of living in New York City, I think I’ve officially deemed Fall my favorite season here. There really is something in the air during this time! I can’t think of a better feeling than walking through colorful Central Park with a chai latte in hand, just taking it all in. Now that I live further uptown, I (finally!) have the space to decorate and I even have some trees out my window – New Yorkers know how RARE this is! I’ve loved watching the leaves change this October. It’s the little things, ya know?
You guys KNOW how I feel about a good Old Navy purchase and let me just say – this skirt was worthy of it’s own blog post! After doing an “Old Navy Sale” haul on my Instagram Stories, a bunch of you reached out and said how much you loved it. Since then, I’ve been doing most of my shopping at Old Navy and it has pretty much changed my life. My bank account is a whole lot happier, too.
Everyone who knows me KNOWS I love a good ruffle. Especially when they’re striped! But even more than that, I love a good deal. I’ve been findings some great Fall statement pieces at H&M recently and they have some serious steals right now!
This top is so cozy, it’s practically like wearing pajamas. For a weekend look, I paired it with denim shorts and sneakers and added a bandanna to mix things up. Once the weather cools down, it would be SO cute with these cropped joggers or my all-time favorite Express denim.
What a month!! In my last blog post, I could hardly believe it was already August. Then I blinked and here we are, nearly halfway through September. But what felt like a “blink” was actually the busiest and most exciting month EVER. So after two weddings, one bachelorette party and a trip to Las Vegas, I am officially exhausted and ready to put down roots for a
Happy Tuesday! How is it August already?! This summer has flown by, but it also feels like it’s just beginning. This week is the start of a very busy month and it involves a whole lot of travel. Any guess where I’m headed to first? Make sure to follow along on Instagram, where I’ll be documenting the day-to-day adventures!
If you read my “Best of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale” post, then you know I only purchased one item from the sale this year. While there were SO many great options, I wanted to splurge on an item that I would get ALOT of use out of. And these boots do not disappoint!! I swear I’ll be wearing them every single day.
