These were taken during my recent stay in New York, while I was in the city interning. I had the day off work and spent all of it walking around my next door neighborhood of Nolita. While I was in New York, I picked up these great Dr. Martens because no matter how many comfortable shoes you think you brought to New York, you quickly realize this city has a way of hurting your feet in ways you never imagined possible, and turning your favorite shoes against you. All of that to say, these have been New York tried, tested, and approved, and now have become my go-to pair even after leaving the city (I'm actually wearing them right now while typing this, no joke). I've been loving these shoes so much that I forced my cousin to get them before traveling to Europe. She's currently sending me pictures of her gallivanting the streets of Paris in them. So, it's fair to say they are now also Paris tested and approved. Find this exact pair linked above or shown below in the scrolling bar, along with how recreate the rest of this look.

My friends and I have lately formed the habit of roaming around tiny towns in Alabama to see what treasures they are hiding. We recently stopped in on Talladega, took a stroll 'round the town square, watched a movie in the old theatre, and snapped these pictures. Even though I am from one of the smallest towns on this great Earth, there's still something incredibly charming about stepping into small town you have never visited before. Stay tuned for more Alabama adventures to come. In the meantime, follow along on my Instagram

My obsession with the UK based brand Shrimps has been long running. And so, during an end of the season sale last winter, I was finally able to get in on the multi-colored faux fur action. But the thing about end of the season sales is you likely have to wait the duration of the whole next year to wear those treasures scored, which is exactly what happened with this beauty. So here you have me lying in my long awaited coat and sock feet in Kenslie's living room during one of our many weekends in Birmingham.

This is one of those rare moments when you show up completely coordinating with your surroundings, and your photographer friend is coincidentally there to capture it. I'm wearing my new favorite bell sleeve turtle neck from Madewell, which I may or may not have purchased in all three colors... Treat yoself, you know what I mean? And as if it's not amazing on its own, it's now on sale.
