milan street style.

these girls spotted on the streets of milan aren't afraid to take fashion risks. color blocking, glitter, extreme patterns, sky-high stilettos, and head-to-toe leather... just a few of the bold, fabulous trends for fall! fashion is supposed to be fun, so go big or go home!

sit for a while.

one of my favorite paris pasttimes is sitting outside at a sidewalk cafe, sipping espresso, and watching the world go by.

this one i spotted in the 6th arrondissement looks particularly inviting, don't you think?


pink paint.

i recently borrowed an issue of house beautiful magazine from my mom that had a whole section on decorating with pink. now, i can't get all those gorgeous pink interiors out of my head!

i love the idea of orchid pink, almost verging on lilac, walls. paired with crisp white trim and taupey-grey accents, i think it could be so beautiful and sophisticated... dare i say even a bit parisian?

what do you think... are you brave enough take the plunge and decorate with pink? and how do i convince my husband that we need a pink room in our house?


wine & food... and plenty of it!

it's been over a week now, but i'm still recovering from this year's new york city wine & food festival. i consumed way more food and drink than one person should probably consume in a month - over the course of three days. i think i must have gained ten pounds!

while all the events were amazing, the standout this year was definitely the blue moon burger bash. 21 of the city's best restaurants and chefs came together in a warehouse under the brooklyn bridge to determine who serves up the best burger in new york. i don't necessarily recommend tasting 21 burgers in 3 hours, but my family and i were on a mission to find the best one... so we did! there were tons of great contenders, and while we might not have all agreed once the winners were announced (i'm still rooting for shake shack and quality meats!), a good time was had by all.

i also got to mix and mingle with some of the hottest celebrities in the food world. some of my favorites... bobby flay, giada delaurentiis, robert irvine, paula deen & family, and ming tsai!

all in all a spectacular weekend... a big thanks to my parents for inviting us to tag along. let's do it again next year!
