This Week's Top 10

is it weird that this beautiful bathroom was one of my biggest sources of inspiration this week? source: AD greenwich village apt tour


1. Happy Friday! The past couple of weeks have been so crazy with work, I am so happy it's Friday. I am also looking forward to heading back to New York this weekend and reuniting with my little apartment. I've been gathering quite a bit of inspiration since I've been gone and I am excited for my furniture to arrive next week!


2. Speaking of my apartment, decorating is, like, all I can think about, all the time. I am pinning nonstop to my Pinterest boards!


3. I love this post from Eye Swoon on how to find the perfect vintage vessels and vases (Athena Calderone is one of my biggest sources of home/lifestyle inspiration)

Perfect Pieces for the Start of Summer


It feels like just yesterday the sun was already set by 4pm, and I barely went outside for fear of hypothermia. But... somehow it's actually mid-May, and I couldn't happier! The sun is up at 8 PM these days and that is a sign that summer is upon us! I head back to New York this weekend, and then I am on Martha's Vineyard at the end of the month for Memorial Day. I am so excited about the warmer weather and some beach days ahead that I rounded up a ton of pieces perfect for this start of summer.

This Week's Top 10: Apartment Updates


 1. This week absolutely flew by for me. Anyone else? Work was insane, and on top of that, I've been in Wisconsin at Joe's apartment! I leave here tomorrow afternoon for Charleston to spend Mother's Day with my mom!


2. Speaking of Mother's Day: I shared a mother's day gift guide here. Graduations are also right around the corner / already here for some, so I shared a graduation dress roundup here and a graduation gift guide here!


3. I packed this dress to wear in Charleston and I'm so excited to frolic around in it. It's so cute and fun!

Graduation Gift Ideas


Graduation season is here! How did this happen? I started my post-grad job in September just a few weeks after some of my friends in college headed back to school, and it's wild to realize an entire school year has just gone by. Today I want to share some of the best college (or high school) graduation gift ideas for anyone in your life graduating in the coming weeks. 

May Moodboard (Desktop Wallpaper!)


When you think of May, how can you not think of James Taylor songs, a cottage on Martha's Vineyard complete with a massive shaggy dog, and a crisp glass of rosé accompanied by a gorgeous floral arrangement? The start of summer is hereeee babbyyy and this month's moodboard really sets the vibe for the month ahead!!!
