    Tropical Cover Up

    Sometimes my packing is on point, sometimes I get to my destination and realized I packed all wrong. When this happens, I got to work with what I have and hope for the best. This trip I realized the first morning that I didn’t pack enough cover ups. I knew it was going to be hot but forgot about the tropical humidity that comes along with island destinations. When it is hot and humid, I like to wear loose shirts and cover ups to catch the breeze and project my skin from the sun. Having a loose cover up also helps to make an outfit look more put together without…

    Hunger Games

    “Playing dress-up begins at age five and never truly ends.” –Kate Spade, and I can’t agree more. When I was younger, my sisters and I would play dress up all the time, and we had so much fun putting together costumes, which is exactly how getting dressed as an adult should be! Back when I was 5, my dress-up inspiration usually came from whatever my favorite Disney movie was at the time. Not too much has changed, except that I’ve broadened my movie horizons beyond Disney. My outfit inspiration comes from all over, magazines, Instagram, street style, Pinterest, fashion shows and movies. That is why I love fashion because it…

    Findlay Market

    Last weekend I spent my Saturday in Cincinnati visiting Andrea, one of my college roommates. I’ve been in and out of Cincinnati a couple times but had never really had the chance to explore the different neighborhoods. We started the morning in Hyde Park at Coffee Emporium. They had a nice warm fire burning on their patio that we enjoyed with our delicious mocha mudslides and zucchini bread. With only a couple hours to explore we headed to Over the Rhine, also known as OTR to go to the Findlay Market. The market is about four blocks of local vendors of all sorts. We stumbled upon Ida Candles stand where…

    The Poncho

    One of the appeals of the poncho is its’ simplicity and functionality. You know those days in the fall and winter when you think “man I wish I could just have a big blanket wrapped around me,” Well now you can! Ponchos are easy to style and will keep you nice and warm. I saw one of my friends wearing this Abercrombie and Fitch poncho and fell in love. The colors are great because they are earthy neutral colors and go with most of my current wardrobe. Below are some tips on how to rock that poncho this fall 1) Top: Wear a neutral color top underneath. Stick with the higher necklines, crew neck, mock…

    The Spa at River Ridge

    Last weekend I enjoyed a relaxing and pampering spa day with The Spa at River Ridge. After a busy beginning to fall, it was nice to have a Saturday with nothing planned but relaxation. Everyone needs that one day of no plans. Whether your idea of relaxing is peace and quiet, a spa day, or a nice long hike, make sure you plan a day every once in a while to enjoy just that. It makes all the difference! A spa day with some blogger friends, count me in! I started my morning off with a 60-minute Swedish massage (my very first massage ever!) My masseuse, Kali, worked all my knots…
