Perfect summer dress

Dress: Madewell, Sandals: GAP (sold out, similar here), Bag: Milly (similar here)

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it and actually bought it way before summer even started. It's the perfect throw-on dress that can be worn every day- and so comfortable I would if I could! The silky fabric and paisley print make it a bit more luxurious than a jersey and it's so lightweight in the heat. Definitely my favorite of the season!

Postcards from Yorkshire (Part 2)

Continuing with photos from my trip home, and these cliffs were such an incredible sight. If you catch them on a good day, often there are hundreds of puffins, just hanging out on the rocks. Unfortunately, I must have got a puffin-less day, and a very windy one at that, but it was still worth these amazing views!

Whilst in the countryside, I also enjoyed the pleasure of dressing simply. It was chilly (compared to summer in NYC), and often breezy (so no hats either!) and so I just wore jeans, flats, and a simple sweater about 70% of my stay. Sometimes it's a nice change to go back to basics!

Postcards from Yorkshire (Part 1)

I started this blog whilst studying in Bristol (UK), before moving to New York, so what not many people know is that I'm actually from Yorkshire. I haven't been home since last Christmas and was anxious to see my family and have some brief respite from the daily hustle in NYC if only for 2 short weeks. I find funny that often when I tell people in the US where I'm from, I'm met with blank stares. It seems that several people here in the states don't know very much about the north of England. Here are a few "postcards" that share what I love about my home county, from the coast to the country.

Last minute wedding outfit

Dress: Kate Spade (on sale!), Shoes: Jimmy Choo, Bag: Loeffler Randall, Hair: thanks to Zoe and Tina at Arrojo

I really didn't think I was going to make it back to the UK for this wedding and literally found out a few short weeks before that I'd be able to fly! That didn't leave much time for planning an outfit. Being so busy organizing all the other travel plans, I just bought this dress online on a whim, having never seen it or tried it on, and being final sale it was a bit of a risk! Fortunately it worked out! Black and white are probably the 2 things you shouldn't wear for a wedding, but I think this combo of both was suitable! Plus I couldn't resist the giant sequin detailing. Adding this fruity clutch brought in just the right amount of color and fun!

Congrats to the bride and groom!
