garden living

dress - ASOS (similar) // sandals - Madewell // necklace - Made Her Think (similar)
watch - Dior // sunnies - Cheap Monday
Final post from San Miguel! I was fortunate enough to stay at a friend's wonderful apartment that had this gorgeous (and huge!) garden rooftop. What I would give to have a beautiful array of flowers on my patio in NY.. too bad I was born with a black thumb! Loved sitting out here enjoying the 360 views while eating breakfast and/or an afternoon refreshment.  
It was so beautiful and hot in NY today, brought back these memories of summer and made me think of breaking out this white shift dress again! It has this amazing alligator like jacquard texture to it and of course one of my fave details on any dress, pockets!
Hope you are having a good week!

urban jungle

trench - H&M Conscious Collection (love these - here and here) // shirt - Madewell (want the silk one too!) // leather skirt - Payne (similar)
sandals - Madewell // bag - Alexander Wang // sunnies - Madewell
A little more from San Miguel! Stumbled upon this beautiful park one day hiking through town. Love seeing so much green in the middle of an urban area, takes you miles away without actually having to go so far!
Wore a little "pre-transitional" outfit (since it was still technically summer), layering my fave lightweight trench over a leather mini. Will totally be making this a little more fall/city appropriate with some ankle booties soon!

fall into the season

dress - Zara // cardigan - Raquel Allegra // boots - Alexander Wang
ring - Bliss Lau // earrings - Loren Stewart // bag - Gucci // hat - Biltmore & Madewell 

Summer is drifting away and all I can think about it switching out my closet for the new season! Loving an earthy neutral palette of light flowy dresses layered with oversized slouchy cardis and of course, boots, boots, boots! Been lusting over this fringy Gucci bag for awhile (in every color!) and I might even get wild and try a little fedora action this year (I look awful in hats)!! And as always gotta throw in some statement making jewels!
Off to the Hamptons this weekend to grasp whatever tiny bit of summer I can find! Wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!

Being in this beautiful brightly colored town seemed like the perfect occasion to throw on a pop of color (a rare occasion for me!). Not to mention this being the perfect dress to learn a little bachata and dance the night away! For the record, I was horrible at it!! It's one of the only times I've felt like I had two left feet!
But horrible dancing aside, it's really hard not to be in a cheery mood surrounded by so much color here. (It could have also been the many large pitchers of sangria ;))
Still more to come soon!
