My 2018 Holiday Fashion Lookbook + VIDEO

Hello and Happy 2019!!! I really wanted to have this post up before the clock hit midnight on January 1st but to be completely honest, I was spending some time off of social media to enjoy quality time with friends and family over the holidays. These are some of my holiday outfits and outfit inspirations from this past season that I believe will also carry over to the next holiday season!

First is the whole lookbook video followed by still photos.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year! I am so excited to see what 2019 brings.

Last Week Living in Florence, Italy

After almost four months living in one of the most beautiful places in the world, my time eventually had to come to a close. I saw some of the most amazing things and traveled to the most beautiful cities. Here, I learned a lot, not only in school, but about myself. I ended up spending a good amount of time by myself and kind of figured out what I wanted to do with my life when I got home. I had a great time and will definitely be back very soon.

Ciao for now!

Rome, Italy | 11/30/18 – 12/2/18

Rome is by far my favorite city in Italy. I’m thankful to say that this was my 4th time visiting and I’m always ready to go back again for a 5th.

If you are ever in Rome, you HAVE TO GO to Trattoria Luzzi for lunch. This place is so good and SO inexpensive. It is just a few blocks from the Colosseum and halfway to the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterno.


Unfortunately, we did not get to go inside the Vatican Museum to see the Sistine Chapel because it is closed on Sundays… important to know if you’re there on a Sunday :/. However, just standing in front of the church is incredible and being in this area feels like you are in a totally different place.

Pisa, Italy | 11/26/18

The iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa is only an hour train ride from Florence so it is a definite day trip must! Pisa is a very small town and you can do this in a day, or just a few hours like I did.

We ate dinner at a place called Pizzeria Trattoria Toscana right across from the leaning tower and it was absolutely amazing! Slightly touristy but we wanted to stay close to the tower. Very good- if you go, you have to try it!

Dublin, Ireland, Cliffs of Moher, and Galway, Ireland | 11/22/18 – 11/25/18

I recently traveled to Ireland for a weekend and here are some photos I took while I was there. We toured the Jameson Distillery on Bow Street, had a drink at Temple Bar, and toured the west side of the country. I have been to Dublin before; see my first post from last year, here.

On our second day in Ireland, we took a 12 hour tour to the far west side of the country to see the Cliffs of Moher, Kilmacdaugh Monastery, The Burren Rocks, and the city of Galway. This day was one of the coolest things I have ever done and probably one of the best things I did while being abroad. The tour was extremely affordable; it was only 40 Euros a person + additional food and fun expenses. For a full day of travel and sightseeing, this was incredible.

Here is the link to the tour to buy tickets if you are ever interested in going – https://www.getyourguide.com/dublin-l31/cliffs-of-moher-full-day-tour-from-dublin-t91047/?referrer_view_id=c7f9b212cddf6cdc5aaf4f1925b9a90a&referrer_view_position=1
