Stripes and Plaid

I’m not going to lie to you, I am so sad to be back home. For the first time in a while, I wasn’t looking forward to going home. I’ve been tired of living in Miami since forever and can’t wait to move once I graduate. While I still don’t know where life will take me, I’m hoping it’s to NYC! I have always loved this city. Ever since I was younger (around 6) and started visiting when I lived in Connecticut for a few years. There’s something so magical about it and I couldn’t think of a better place to grow my blog and myself than in New York City.

I shot this look over the weekend on the most quaint street right by Central Park. This red door is actually the front door of a townhouse!  I mean, come on. I’d take that in a heartbeat. This striped sweater is my go-to this fall and, although I wish I got it in a S and not a M, it is so cozy and perfect for on-the-go. They actually now added two more colors so it comes in a total of four! I love that it’s a classic but it doesn’t break the bank (only $34!).

I absolutely love mixing stripes and plaid. So I added in this plaid scarf that is only $20. It’s a tan multicolored scarf so it basically matches with anything!

As you can tell, I lightened my hair again. I’ll be keeping it like this until the spring and then I’ll decide what I want to do. I love my hair lighter, though! I’ll also be sharing a NYC travel diary this week and I’ll go over some of my favorite places I ate, shopped and more.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! xo

    Living in NYC would be an amazing experience, you should totally move there when you graduate if it is possible. Your hair looks great lighter!

    OBSESSED. You know I’ve been dying over stripes and plaid lately…it’s kind of all I wear. I got this scarf from Nordstroms and love it…I love the ‘girly’ plaid!
