As much as everyone is speaking about Fall rollin’ around, today is the first day it feels like it. There’s a cold bite in the air, I can comfortable wear a jacket, and the PSL is calling my name! This past week was the perfect sayonara to Summer: filled with exploring the city, al fresco happy hours, and reminiscing on my favorite Summer moments. I’m heading home on Wednesday and cannot wait! It’ll be the first time back since May so it’s been a long time coming. After relaxing for a day or two, my family and I are heading to Long Beach Island for a wedding of one of our good family friends. We’ll spend the weekend at the beach and enjoying the solitude from the city. It sounds like the perfect ending to a great summer.
With the new season rolling around, I’ve been in the mood to completely revamp everything on the blog-front. I’ve been in somewhat of a creative slump lately and I think it’s because I’ve been straying away from the aesthetics that I originally started this blog with. After re-following some creative and colorful geniuses on Instagram (check out the “Color Play” list on the main feed if you’re interested in joining), I’m so excited to start introducing a new vibe around here. Albeit, you’ll still be seeing the same content but with a bit of pop.
In the meantime, here are some snaps from my Instagram feed – and a brief view into what’s to come. I also have some super exciting projects in the works so stay tuned!
Photos (I) We have been looking to visit these Colette Miller wings in DC for the longest time, and finally got around to doing so last weekend. They’re beyond gorgeous and were the perfect complement to my breezy outfit (maxi from Old Navy and top from Lulus) | My mouth is watering looking at these again. If you haven’t been to American Ice Co in DC, go ASAP! Make sure you order the swatchos and a pitcher of Narragansatt | Weekend essentials lately have been consisting of brown eye hues, the September issues, and a bottle of JRINK | Reminiscing over my trip earlier this summer to OBX. Seriously, it was the perfect vacation and I feel like I need to schedule a repeat soon
Photos (II) My never-fail makeup routine lately (you can see the full listing here!) | Fall colors are starting to pop up around the local farm stands and I can’t be more excited | Another OBX moment (yup, I really love that place) | The Stila lip cream has become one of my new favorites. I also am forcing myself to cook more; enter EatingWell with the most delicious looking recipes
What was your favorite part of the weekend? What are you looking forward to this Fall? Mine is the several road trips I have planned up North! Let me know – I’d love to hear all about it!
