Pats Game

 Jacket: Piperlime (similar). Sweater: Gap. Jeans: AG. Scarf: Forever 21. Boots: Nine West. Bag: Ziploc (NFL stadium rules... ugh).

It's official... I am now a Pats fan. Sorry, Giants! Marriage....
(Baseball is another story... I will forever be rooting for the Yankees.) I gave Ted tickets to the Pats vs. Bears game as a first anniversary gift. Not bad for paper, right?

I found the tickets on TickPick (similar to Stubhub but without fees for buyers), a company that was started by a fellow Lehigh alum. I have also bought concert tickets and highly recommend you check them out if you are in the market for event tickets. The site ranks ticket based on location and price to help you identify the best deal.

Go Brady!

My scarf doubled as a blanket when it got chilly. It was only $12 from Forever 21.

I am in love with this Gap Eversoft drop shoulder sweater. I have it in gray and mushroom... on sale now.

Ted and I made an agreement that if I became a Pats fan he would buy me whatever gear I wanted. I passed on the "Spirit Fingerz"... unfortunately not iPhone compatible.

Weekend on the Cape

My view from the Chatham Bars Inn this past weekend while spending time on the Cape with Ted and his family. My sister-in-law was visiting from across the country with our beautiful niece. We have been waiting anxiously since March to meet her!

How cute is she?!

 Jacket: Piperlime (similar). Top: Madewell. Boots: Frye. Bag: MZ Wallace.

Obligatory photo with Lilly Pulitzer Jeep Wrangler at in the pink.

Strolling downtown...

Wine tasting at Chatham Wine + Provisions. One of my favorite stops on Main Street.

Love these M.W. Coastal Goods bottle openers. Too early to think about stocking stuffers?

Ted and Charlotte at Pumpkin People in the Park. 

Love her anchor hat.


Wish I could end every day walking on the beach!

Work Totes

Kicking off the work week (sorry if you didn't have yesterday off too) with work bags. Here is a selection of popular totes that are versatile for the office, or class if you're lucky enough to still be in school, and running around after hours.

From top, left to right

MZ Wallace Sutton $225
(25% off with code FAMILY25 through 10/16 at Shopbop)
This bag is on my wishlist. One of my colleagues has it in a slate color... seeing hers everyday makes me want one too.

I am currently using this bag in avocado. It's also served well as a travel bag. 

Longchamp Le Pliage Large $145
(25% off with code FRNFAM through 10/19 at Saks)
I've featured this bag countless times because it's so versatile. Make it unique with your monogram.. I brought mine to my monogram lady to customize.

Lo & Sons O.M.G. $245
(20% off  $150+ with code FALLFRIENDS14)
This bag is constantly featured on blogs. The "Overnight and Medium Gym", aka O.M.G., has an organized inside and a back panel to slip over luggage handles.

Madewell Transport Tote $168
(25% off with code FAMILY25 through 10/16 at Shopbop)
Keep it simple. Another blogosphere favorite.

Splurgeworthy. It amazes me how much this bag can hold with its thin straps. I have the medium size and would love the next one up to fit my laptop.

My Boulevard bag in avocado.

FYI, Shopbop's Friends & Family sale is on through 10/16 - 25% with code FAMILY25. Perfect timing for a new bag!

Is it Friday yet?

In exactly one week Ted and I will be traveling to Europe. Our first stop is London, followed by Munich, Brussels and the grande finale in Paris. I visited Paris when I was younger... I am so excited to finally return.

I wish I could pack for 10 days in a carry on but it's just not happening. I'll be consolidating as much as possible this weekend. Lots of basics and black. I have failed to do much research on what we will actually do upon arrival... any advice would be appreciated. I get overwhelmed each time I start researching... now the trip is almost here!

We will be staying at The Savoy. We are only there for 2 days... so need to make it count. My friend kindly gave me two Oyster cards to load upon arrival.


This is the one city where we have a plan...Oktoberfest. We are meeting up with our friends that live in Germany and a few of our best friends from home. Together we will travel to Brussels and Paris.

We will be staying at an apartment in the Latin Quarter along with our friends Mike and Kate. Croissants, Macaroons. Wine. People watching. I can't wait.

I'll definitely be visiting City Pharma... I have a long list of French beauty products to get my hands on. That I have done my research.

If you have any tips or recommendations.. please, please share! I really appreciated all of the advice before my Charleston trip back in the spring.

First Anniversary

This past weekend Ted and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. One year later the cake was still good, if not better!

The ginger jar and monogrammed napkin were part of our reception. More pics from our big day here. 

Spooning together since September 7, 2013. This cute and thoughtful gift was from my bridesmaid, Kate. You can find them at Spoon Tracker.

I keep this picture of my parents on their first anniversary on my dresser... this inspired me to have our cake cutting captured.

Love you, Ted! xo
