Sunny Side Up

My look: Free People teehippie pant, necklace - Jeffrey Campbell bootie | Simone's Look: Free People overall, tank, necklace, hat

Photos by my favorite photographer, ever: Alyssa Florentine
[A big big thanks to Jenn and Simone; you girls made this shoot wonderful. So beautiful on the inside and out!! xxx]

I live for that natural light kissing the city buildings. I also live for these pants. I could spend every waking minute in them. They flow in every way a girl could want and have me dreaming of Coachella days in desert heat. With love from my favorite super babes over at Free People Pittsburgh, this mini look book was shot welcoming spring and all of the sunshine and happiness it brings. A mix of rock n' roll with boho vibes is always my go to.. and a touch of chic elements like these cat eye sunnies and black brim hat are the cherry on top. Us girls had so much fun skipping the city streets detailed head to toe. We munched on cookies the size of our heads, chased the sunset, with messy hair and no agenda.. what free means to me. 

I have one more look from this lovely day to share with y'all.. so keep your eyes peeled. Free People Pittsburgh will be opening a new location at Ross Park Mall on May 2nd! I'm so so excited about shopping their new location, I've heard wonderful things! 

Go be free this weekend, eat lots of chocolate, and dance in the sunshine.

Studio City

I just got back from visiting my boyfriend in California and I'm already dying to go back. My silly point and shoot camera came along for the ride and I can't wait to show y'all the film once it gets developed. Until then, admire these palm trees and drool over globs of cheesy In-N-Out deliciousness. Happy Thursday!

REMember Music | SXSW

A night full of talent, originality, and love. I had the chance to travel down to Austin, TX this year for SXSW to watch my boyfriend, Dylan Reynolds perform in a showcase with his fellow label mates. Mac Miller's new label REMember Music brought Texas a breath of fresh air with a showcase of different artists doing what they love. The label is a mix of all genres - everything from singer-songwriters to rappers. This diversity really adds a beautiful aspect and made the night feel like an adventure. The showcase was held outdoors at The Scoot Inn which had a vast amount of room yet intimate feel. It was a perfect night under stringed lights with good music, a loving crowd, strong drinks, and a food stand serving the best veggie quesadilla I've ever eaten. Each performance had a specific sound that kept me wanting more and more. I seriously felt like a proud soccer mom the entire time. My camera strap was glued to my neck throughout the night as I soaked it all in through my lens and ears. I grooved, I sang, I captured. I left feeling both refreshed and overwhelmed after hearing such raw talent. Each and every artist and person involved with REMember Music did a wonderful job making the night magical. They are bringing the music back.

Spring Break, Please Donut End.


Over the past week I've been living my last Spring break.... ever. I started off in Austin for SXSW and recovered in Pittsburgh for a couple days of relaxation with my family. Being home means lots of "me" time, which is usually spent eating, painting, hiking, baking, and living a straight up couch potato life. I love the days with no agenda. No plans, no problem, I'm a happy girl. Overall my break has been absolutely wonderful and I feel so lucky that I have such beautiful, talented, and loving people in my life. Above are a few shots from the past few days. I have lots and lots of pictures from Austin that will be coming up on the blog soon, as well as some pretty cool outfit posts. For now, I'm gonna enjoy a few more pastries and lazy away my Sunday. New new new goodies coming up here soon!

Pretty Pretty Princess


Girls, we deserve to feel like princesses every once in a while. Take a day to treat yourself. Paint your nails with lavender and sparkles. Pick some flowers and put them by your bed. Sip tea, read poems, and sit in your pajamas all day. Be messy and magical and just, float. Happy happy hump day - start planning out a second, minute, hour, or day this weekend to be a princess. I'm gonna head to Krispy Kreme, grab a glazed donut, and put that paper their hat crown on my head. How's that sound? 

I hope you feel beautiful and have a wonderful afternoon. I'm headed to Austin tomorrow for SXSW and cannot wait. My boyfriend is showcasing and I'm a tid-bit excited to see him. So much packing, so little time. Can't wait to share all my memories on here when I get back! Until then, let me know how you made yourself sparkle this weekend!
