WEDDING LOOK DETAILS"

Foxiedox: Winnie Off the Shoulder Dress / Loeffler Randall: Emi Heels / Oscar de la Renta: Long Tassel Drop Clip Earrings (more affordable/identical option HERE) / Serpui Marie: Wicker Bag / BaubleBar: Mini Monogam Necklace 

We had to miss out on a wedding last weekend and this was the look I was going to wear but still wanted to share! I love the dress -- its super stretchy. I'm wearing an L but I should have gotten a M (I didn't know it was stretchy until it arrived!).

May Q&A: 

Q: Would you recommend your white Hermes bracelet? Does it go with a lot? I can’t decide between the white and the black.
A: I wouldn't recommend it for the price. It's very expensive and I don't wear it all that much because it's the larger size. I feel like I'm over the look and appeal of it for right now! But if you love it and see yourself wearing it all the time, I would think about what works best with your closet -- for me the white is better!

Q: How do you balance work, relationship and family? Do you go to church? What’s your favorite color? What’s your favorite meal to eat?
A: I find time when I'm with each of them to really focus on them and no one else. Time is a precious commodity! No, blue and anything involving rice.

Q: I know you find great deals through eBay, but what’s been one of your biggest fashion splurges? Any regrets? And do you feel like some brands are worth splurging on versus others?
A: Probably the most recent splurge is buying my Cariter ring since its so small and sooo expensive! But I rarely (if at all) regret anything I buy. Between thinking about wanting it, researching, waiting and buying I probably take 2-3 months on the process. I want to make sure that I know exactly what I want and that it's worth the price I bought it for. I personally love to shop for Hermes and Louis Vuitton just because they are never too trendy, so you know you're getting a good investment and because they both hold up extremely well over time. 

Q: Since you’re one of the few bloggers with a ft job I’ve always wondered how you address your blogging career to people in “real life”? Do you bring it up or let them figure it out? Are most people supportive?
A: It all depends on who I am talking to but I rarely bring up my blog because I usually lead with my job at MLB. I would say 70% of the time someone else will tell them or they will google/find me on Instagram and find it out for themselves. Everyone (at least to my face) has been very supportive!

Q: Can you talk about your experience with getting a job after college? 
A: I was pretty lucky in that I found a job before I graduated so I don't have a ton of advice to give post graduation but you can read about how I landed my job HERE

Q: How often you get a facial done? And what type of facial?
A: I get a facial once a month and I always get a signature facial which involves extractions, a peel and light therapy. 

Q: What are your favorite NYC coffee shops? Or are there any must not miss not-so-touristy places?
A: I don't really drink coffee but love Ralphs! Favorite things to do are ride bikes up/down the West Side Highway, visit the Top of the Rock, walk around (and go to the museum in) One World Trade, walk the Brooklyn Bridge, visit Dumbo, eat at Shake Shack, walk around Central Park and go to the Cloisters.

Q: Do you ever struggle with the blog/life separation? Sometimes I fell think there are things that we don’t want on the internet - but we love the support and the help (and often it’s just cathartic to share,) that we get from the people on the internet. Do you ever find that getting to that point of appropriate balance is challenging?
A: 100% there are a LOT of things I keep very private -- which may seem crazy because I am for the most part an open book. When things like this come into play, I just don't even hint or allude to the fact that something is going on on the blog or my social channels because I'm not trying to lead anyone on to then guess "oh what did she mean by that" or try and figure it out on their own. I'm just cautious of what I share here not because of my readers but because of the people who read who want to make it into something else/use it to hurt me.

[going to combine the last two since they were similar]
Q: How do you determine your clothing/accessories budget and what are key pieces per season that you would consider must have items vs always having classic pieces? Do you divide your budget by clothes, home decor, entertainment, bills etc or is it more of a lump sum?
A: It's a little different/difficult because I have this blog and can use some items as write offs but for the most part my budget is just a lump sum. I know (daily) what I have in both my bank accounts, what my credit card bill is at and how much money I need for rent and bills. So I'm very cautious to never go over the amount I have on hand but also am super selective with what I buy and keep. This is definitely a post for another day if you guys are interested!

I'm thinking of doing a monthly Q&A so if you have more questions please leave them below for me to answer!
