I have lived in this city my whole life and never knew what the inside looked like until today — safe to say this english major might've geeked out juuust a little bit! It's funny, we make bucket lists to have certain experiences or see new places or things so far from wherever we currently are, but rarely ever do we give a second thought to what's already right in front of us.
my upcoming trips this summer have me outfit planning already & all about a neutral palette with an added pop (red is my go-to) • from HYA for the fourth LAX for vaca, this outfit is just dressy enough while still keeping with the beachy vibe. // tap for outfit details 🏼🏼🏼 #ootd#sscollective

my attempt at dairy-free is going well.
do you ever visit someplace + think, 'I could live here'? • some days I wake up + crave being back in Sicily • everywhere I looked, there was some other beautiful entryway or balcony to photograph, the smell of espresso + ocean air wafting through its alleyways. forever missing the sensory aspects of this incredible country + hoping I'm lucky enough to get back one day.

still dreaming of last night's spread @moodysbackroom x @moodyswaltham • a big thank you to the chef who surprised us with my fave dish on the menu! (homemade black pepper mafaldine bolognese + a perfectly poached egg) • this flatbread though? crushed pistachio pesto + smoked scamozza, people • i literally dreamt about it all night.

Some days, you just need a little extra of whatever. Today it was peonies from @wholefoods (my most fave ever). They may not last long (especially because this girl kills just about every plant she's ever loved) but they're just so PRETTY.

You know when you eat something that you literally end up dreaming about until the next time you have it again? Current Mood as I [im]patiently wait for friday night din @moodysbackroom to eat ALL the carbs.
If you think you're sensing a pattern with my palette choice, you aren't wrong 🤷🏼♀️ • As much as I try + go bolder with my staples, I'll forever be drawn to neutrals for summer (+ every other day of the year if I'm being honest) • @balibody + @bobbibrown + @lauragellerbeauty are my go-to's for the kind-of-there-but-not-really makeup in this 100° mess.

We all reach a point in life where we question everything. Where we've been, where we are, and where we're going. And when you have certain dreams that you feel will never come to fruition, you find people who believe in that dream and who will work with you to achieve it in the highest sense. Thank you, Raya, for believing in my vision & more importantly my passion to write again, and helping me bring it to life with your incredible talent. : @rayaonassignment | coming soon: diaryofshe.com
When next week's forecast calls for straight rain + the desperation starts to set in. And we're all better people when we're tan, amirite? (PSA: for all my girls that struggle with rough or bumpy skin like me + suffer from seasonal allergies that make your skin a living nightmare, this is an entirely organic solution with caramel extract for smooth, hydrated skin). #balibody
