if i had an apartment right now, this is what i would want it to look like. megan and i seem to have the exact same taste in design; her color scheme, furniture selection, the small decor details and even her jewelry! her favorite places to shop are my favorite places to shop. the color of her bedroom is a similar shade (a little darker) to the color i just picked out for my room. based on all of this, it seems like we would get along just fine. either way, i’m in love with her home & had to share. you can see the full home tour on the everygirl.

i love shoes but this wasn’t always the case. as i’ve gotten older, and my style has evolved, my taste in shoes has grown (immensely). i can’t help but head to the shoe section almost every time i enter a large department store, or any store for that matter. these shoes are a fun bright option for spring and now that it’s officially that time of year, i’ll be wearing them much more.

i’ve been going to montauk every summer since i was a baby. it holds such a special place for me and it always will. unfortunately, a couple of summers ago my grandmother had to sell the family house. this past summer, my sisters and i booked a hotel for the weekend with some friends to celebrate her birthday. although i wish i could say we stayed at the surf lodge, we opted for a cheaper place to try and save some money. wait, who am i kidding, we definitely couldn’t stay at the surf lodge if we wanted to. between the price and the fact that everyone in the world wants to stay there, it just wasn’t going to happen. we did make it there one night for some drinks and dancing and it was great. as if this is no surprise, i found myself straying from our crowd and admiring every little design detail. it is the perfect mix of boho and chic, set on a beautiful piece of property in montauk. please, take me back.

& i thought i would list a few childhood memories of this beautiful place:

-waking up early every morning & going to the local bakery for an amazing jelly donut

-the smell of our family house. this sounds weird, but there is nothing like it

-making family trips to star island for a nice dinner and live music on the water

-the private beach. the beaches there are beautiful and it was always that much nicer when we had it to ourselves

-herbs deli. most days, we would grab delicious deli sandwiches and head to the beach

writing this post makes me realize how much of an impact a place can have. i hope one day i can bring my own family to a place where we can make special memories like these.

half way through the week & this colorful outfit explains my excitement! i’m excited for this weekend because i’m heading into the city for my grandmother’s 80th birthday party. a bunch of family members are coming into town to celebrate so it will be nice to see everyone.

outfit deets.

this week, i paired some fun colors together. my sister’s new shirt came in handy and i love the way it looks with my green pants. if you read my last post, you’ll know i love color and i enjoy trying new combinations. some may consider this a bold move but i think it just works.
