Who doesn't love a good sunset? One of my favorite things we did while in Florence was catch the sunset over the city. On our last night in town we trekked up to the Pizzale Michelangelo to capture a stunning sunset over Florence. We brought a bought of Chianti, pecorino cheese, and bread that we bought from the Mercato Centrale with us. After the sun had set we made our way back down and stopped into La Bruschetta for the most amazing meal ever. We went here on a recommendation from a friend...and I'm so glad that we did. The service was amazing and the food was so fresh. The menu is all in Italian but the waiters speak english and love explaining their meals and menu to the customers. The only problem is that this place has ruining gnocchi's for me...now nothing compares to the melt in your goodness that theirs was.

Today is my birthday! Most people fear turning 30...but for me I'm pretty excited about getting out of my 20s. Not that my 20s were particularly awful as I had made some really great memories in my 20s...like getting married, traveling, and starting graduate school..but I think the 20s are a little rough. Learning how to adult isn't easy. For most people this is the first time you are living life outside of school and it's hard. It's hard figuring out who you are, what you want to do, and what you are suppose to be doing. It took some time for me to figure it all out and I learned to be okay with that. I thought I would have my life all figured out by the time I graduated from college but that's a joke. I barely still have it together now, but at least I have more of a direction. I'm excited about the future, what other new things are left to explore and learn. What I've learned so far in life is to be comfortable about where you are. And be happy. Don't compare yourself to other people..especially in the day of social media...you just can't. Life is always changing, you'll continue to grow and change so enjoy the ride.

Wear Now: Fall 2016 Shoe Trend

 photo shoe2016_zps0er5d81m.png

There are two major Fall shoe trends that I'm loving right now: the ballerina flat and the menswear inspired loafer. Both of these styles are polar opposite of each other but I guess that also mirrors my style. I can be super feminine but also transition into something a little more tomboy. Both these style can spice up your look for fall. You can pair either with cropped jeans or a dress. The best is both these styles can be found from high end and low end designers. So you you can either splurge or steal the look for less.
