The Best Start

I had a whole list of blog posts lined up for the rest of this week, but I thought it could be fun to do a little diary of our time here in NYC for the next few days! I will definitely be doing larger posts on our Fashion Week adventures, but I’m excited to upload a little recap of our days here in the city!

I hope you enjoy getting a little peek behind the scenes…

Diary, Day 1


We seriously lucked out yesterday and it seemed as though we had brought the sunshine with us all the way from Florida. It was a “balmy” 50 degrees and I spent most the day running around in just a sweatshirt, which was so lovely! 

It’s supposed to rain for the next few days so we did our best to soak it up while we could. 


Casual For the Day

On Monday my sweet friends on Bella Force sent me the most adorable bow sweatshirt and I’ve pretty much worn it ever since. 

Yesterday, I wore it with a coat on and off while running around the city! It’s one of those cozy sweatshirts that instantly become a staple. 


Bella Force Bow Sweatshirt // M.Gemi Sneakers c/o // Cuyana Tote // Vineyard Vines Coat (old, similar here)


Maman is one of our favorite New York traditions. We love to go as soon as we step off the plane to sip our favorite lattes and feast on our favorite brunch. 

If you haven’t been to Maman yet, put it on your list… it’s a must!

Note: get the lavender lattes and the avocado toast!!

Podcast Recording

Yesterday evening Ryan and I recorded our very first podcast together and I’m so excited for you all to hear it!

The show will air later this Spring and I will definitely be sharing more details about as we get closer! 

The experience was so much fun and I’ve got to tell you, recording in a professional studio definitely makes you feel like Ryan Seacrest! I couldn’t get enough!

That’s all for now! It’s now almost 2am and we got up this morning at 4am… I think it’s officially time for bed!

For more, follow along on my instagram stories as I share peeks into our days here in the city!
