Easy Party Food

via Honestly Yum  Fall is hands down my favorite season. There are so many fun parties, holiday events, and seasonal activities to keep me busy and in the holiday spirit! Nothing makes me happier than pulling on a pair of riding boots, bundling up in a sweater, grabbing a bottle of wine, and heading out to a fun get together with friends! I love hosting little get togethers just as much as I enjoy attending them! Below is my go to collection of easy party food that I love making for my own parties, or bringing along with me when I am attending as a guest. The Perfect Fall Cheese Board If you need to know one thing about me and my eating habits, know that I am beyond obsessed with cheese boards. I can't…

Lounging in Vineyard Vines

| Long Sleeve T-Shirt, Vineyard Vines | Baseball Cap, Vineyard Vines | I am such a sucker when it comes to comfy t-shirts. Vineyard Vines is my favorite preppy retailer, and for good reason! They carry an abundance of colorful t-shirts, accessories, and other clothing items that frequently make an appearance on my clothing wish list. If you are new to Vineyard Vines I would recommend starting with a few staple items such as a comfy pocket t-shirt (I love this navy one!), a baseball hat, and a preppy pullover! Their long sleeved t-shirts are perfect for those times when you don't feel like trying, but also don't want to look homeless. You feel me. These babies are basically my college uniform. I wish that I was one of those girls that puts on a full outfit to…

The Faux Fur Vest

| Faux Fur Vest, Top Shop (Polo Leah) | Black Blouse, (similar here) | Convertible Purse, Henri Bendel  | Shoes, Sole Society (similar here) | Gold Bracelet, Banana Republic | Last winter when the fur vest came back onto the scene, I wasn't sure how I felt about them. I didn't hate them, but I wasn't quite ready to take the plunge and buy one for myself. I finally decided that I needed one for the cold upcoming months and decided on this faux fur beauty from Top Shop! There are two styles the Polo Leah (collar) and the Leah (no collar). Personally I prefer the collar on the Polo Leah. It frames your face nicely and makes the vest look a bit more expensive in my opinion! When it came to shopping for the…

Rainy Day Gear (and Decor)

| Kate Spade 'Rain Check' Umbrella |  Black Diamond Umbrella | Black and White Umbrella  | Blue Umbrella Stand | White Umbrella Stand | Boot Umbrella Stand | I love the crisp temperatures of fall and the drizzly weather that it can sometimes bring! On these grey autumn days I usually want nothing more than a cozy blanket, a good book, and a snack (or five). However, sometimes I have to leave my apartment - because you know, life... I try to shlep around in the rain in style though and have quite an extensive collection of chic umbrellas. These are a few of my favorites that I have found this season including three umbrella stands that you probably need in your life. Well pick one, three is a little excessive.  Enjoy your rainy days everyone. They truly are magical…
