Upper Westside Adventures

Sunday, September 30, 2012


Necklace: Dana n Nicholas
Dress: Madewell
Shoes: Repetto

Believe it or not, the BF and I have a very exploratory nature about us. When it comes to brunch, we'll walk almost anywhere for me to get a good dessert, I mean french toast. On weekends in the city we love exploring the Westside and eating at different places. It's always fun to find someplace new, right by where you live, that you never even knew existed. 

Roaming has become a weekend ritual for us, and I love it. 

BTW I've decided to start supporting new designers by purchasing a majority of my jewelry (as of late) from Etsy.com. It's amazing what treasures you can find there (like the necklace I'm wearing in this post)! 



The View of My Apt: Teen Vogue Style

Friday, September 28, 2012



I have some exciting news, my apartment was featured on TeenVogue.com! I'm so excited about this collaboration and could not wait to share it with you guys. Many of you have asked for a tour of my apartment so I'm glad some real photographers were on hand to capture my small studio. 

I hope you all enjoy this peak into my home life. 

Be sure to check out the entire feature here.

Drop Waist, Vintage Style

Wednesday, September 26, 2012


Dress: Vintage
Earrings: Jewelmint
Shoes: Madewell

Remember this post on the drop waist? Well, I bit the bullet and tested it out. This dress is the right amount of baggy that I was not opposed to the lowered waist. If you're looking to test out a new trend, and don't want to spend too much on it, vintage is the way to go.


Paradise by the Bay

Sunglasses: Rag and Bone
Jeans: Old Navy
Shoes: Miu Miu

What better way to say goodbye to summer than at the beach! The BF and I found this great little bay beach in East Hampton. Although it was private (shhh) we jumped out of the car and snapped some pics. The BF even took a stab at capturing the landscape and the results are GORGEOUS. I think we have a burgeoning photographer on our hands.

I have no musings today except to say, I love LOVE jewel tones. 

Actually, I take back the no musings. I'm struggling recently with shopping. I've always had a shopping  problem but recently it's spiraled out of control! The change in season has left me insatiable. I struggle to look at blogs every day without wanting to purchase the next best thing. Do you ladies (and guys)ever feel that way? I'm really going to try to be better the next couple of months. There are so many things to save for that aren't fashion related. I think that's something I need to always remember. 

To start with, the BF and I could use a larger place to store all my (I mean our) stuff. 




Last Glimpse of Summer

Sunglasses: Karen Walker
Dress: American  Eagle
Boots: Zara (similar style here)

I cannot believe it's almost October! This weekend I'll be traveling (on business) to one of my favorite places in the world, Orlando. Hopefully I'll be able to sneak away from work and hit up Disney World. 

Did anyone get a chance to catch my post from yesterday? When I woke up this morning my mom said, "doesn't look like your Emma post is doing well, you have no comments". I found that to be a really interesting statement because I don't judge each post on how many comments it gets. If I'm putting up content that I believe in, I think that's a successful post. And if there's something, or someone, I definitely believe in, it's Ms. Emma Watson. 

Plus, I'd rather get a comment that's meaningful than one that's not. There are regulars who comment on my blog with honest commentary that I look forward to reading each day. 

What are all your thoughts on the comment phenomenon?

BTW with fall comes football. With football comes a crazy BF and an even crazier me. Help. 

Football + Me + Studio + BF = Disaster

It's happening. I'm turning into Barbs. 

That's right. I shop at Eileen Fisher... with my mom. 

In my defense, there are some young (30 year old) looking women in her new ad campaigns. I'm only 23, but who's counting? 

There are worse things that could happen. For instance, someone could stop me on the street, while I'm wearing my Chico's pants, and ask me where they're from only to reply with, "oh the grandma store"?*
