i had a blast shooting this look. i purchased this onepiece from shein on a whim for a whopping $20. it is now on sale for $10, so to celebrate this thrifty find i decided to run with the mod floral pattern that already existed on the suit and take this look to a whole other era.  Continue reading “a tip of the visor to 70’s beach style”

the brunch files: maison pickle, nyc

a few weekends back i caught up with some of my blogger buds, megan hoole & sami mauskopf, over brunch. i had eaten at the famous jacob’s pickles several times, and due to a tragic fire it shut down (and is slated to reopen next month!) — but in the meantime, i had been dying to try their sister spot, maison pickle. the time came, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!  Continue reading “the brunch files: maison pickle, nyc”
