Happy {So Long Summer} Weekend

Oh August, why were you in such a rush? We begged you to hang around a little longer but you just wouldn’t listen.

Oh well, we’re on to bigger and better things anyway!

But before I head out to take on the big city, I wanted to send a huge thank you to our lovely summer sponsors! If you’re hanging around this Labor Day weekend, I highly recommend you do a little online shopping.

Ruby Lane is a one-stop shop for all things vintage. Perfect if you’re looking to add a little character to your home!
I’m swooning over each crisp, colorful necklace from Lilah Vintage. I love how she takes vintage pieces and reworks them into fresh, modern looks.
Since turning back into a renter, I’ve become a major fan of wall decals. They’re the perfect solution for commitment-phobes and Urban Walls has everything you might need!
And trust, I’m going to be turning to my Clare Vivier clutches throughout my New York stay and I have Shop Pretty Mommy to thank for each one of them!
I’m so appreciate of everyone’s support of Apartment 34 – it’s what is making this New York adventure possible. I hope you’ll enjoy tagging along with me as I report from the fashion front lines.
Wish me luck luvies!

Triple Threat: {Quiet Corners}

With New York only a day away, peace and quiet, let alone a moment to myself, is going to be rather nonexistent for the next little while. That’s why I’m reveling in these serene scenes this morning.


There’s got to be a secluded corner hiding somewhere in the big city right?! I guess I’ll find out soon enough!

What I Wish I Was Wearing

With New York Fashion Week only days away now, style is weighing pretty heavy on my mind at the moment. That’s why I was thrilled to pop over to one of my must-read blogs, A Piece of Toast to participate in their She Wishes She’s Wearing series! One part dream outfit, one part blogger profile they devised such fun way to get to know fellow bloggers a little better. I feel quite honored that they asked me to join this style savvy group!

I’ve been digging a casually chic vibe lately, which obviously informed my dream wardrobe selection. What do you think?

This look also incorporates my answer to their question: what are my three fashion must-haves? Blazer,  dark skinny jeans and a good heel! I think the ensemble is perfect for Sunday brunch in New York, right? The dream of that experience was my inspiration.
Head on over to A Piece of Toast for the full interview. Thanks again to Moly and Sally for having me!
