Finally getting back into this little blog after a few months of debating how to best prioritize all that I juggle in this city that never sleeps. Or maybe, it's just me that's not sleeping with so much to do on never ending to do lists. I'm in the midst of wedding planning, and as fun and exciting it is to picture our special day, the self planning of such a big soiré has honestly been overwhelming. August will be here soon enough and we can't wait to celebrate and let all the little stuff go.
So it's been a struggle to find the right balance, and coming back to what I'm passionate is what I need to fuel me for the long haul when the going gets tough.
In the fall my fiancé and I had taken a trip out to Long Island with my family. After a second visit we both knew upon entering the historical mansion on the Gold Coast of Long Island that this would be our spot. It felt like a home really, a place that we could see our friends and closest family gathering together, but with the right kind of gatsby feel. We spent the day exploring out of the city and ended it at a delicious spot on the water for some seafood and an unexpected sunset. We captured some little previews of our spot and the rest will have to stay a surprise.
This day was a little chillier and I love soft pastels so I slipped on this warm off the shoulder sweater and some mules. Mine are originally from the Dolce Vita for Target line, so I linked similar ones here. With my skin fair in the fall and winter I tend to gravitate toward more muted and neutral hues.
