vintage summer style

June 30, 2015

on alexa: swiss dot cami and denim bermuda shorts (with a little of my DIY help distressing them!)
on hayden: california tee and plaid canvas shorts

we are out at the outer banks in north carolina for a HUGE family reunion, which i will eventually blog about, but in the meantime had to share some cute beachy and summery pictures of alexa and hayden. another little shout out to old navy because they have the cutest summer clothes for the kids right now. i love how these vintage-y feel of these pictures… kind of makes me think of the wonder years for some reason. stay tuned for a full recap of our napa trip and the beach trip when we are back from vacation!  Continue Reading…

the first hike!

June 21, 2015

when nate and i first started dating we were pretty into hiking… he even proposed to me on a hiking trail! since we have lived in new york–and had kids–hiking has sadly fallen off our list of regular activities. this past memorial day weekend we were trying to figure out how to spend the day and we decided to take the kids on their first real hike! so, we packed some lunches, hopped in our zip car and headed out of the city… Continue Reading…

hey there miami

June 8, 2015

it has been a minute since i blogged… ok, a lot of minutes. the truth is i have been crazy… busier than i’ve been in a long time. that is the trouble with moonlighting as a blogger… pulling doubles isn’t always possible–especially with two kids! i have a lot going on and more that i will share at some point soon, but for the time being i thought i would post these fun pictures from our miami adventures a couple weeks back. we just posted a behind the scenes story on (see it here!), so i thought i would post some of my outtakes… Continue Reading…


a greek salad you will dream about…

May 27, 2015

ok, so dreaming about a greek salad seems silly, but i do. growing up in atlanta we went to mellow mushroom pizza a lot. after 9 years of living in nyc i don’t crave the pizza as much as i used too (sorry mellow mushroom, nyc wins), but i do crave their greek salad and their esperanza dressing. after some digging around online and slight tweaking, the below recipe is about as close to perfect as it gets (and i am pretty sure my version is a bit healthier!). enjoy!

hole-in-one! #trumpgolf

May 25, 2015

while neither nate nor i are golfers, we decided we should give the kids the opportunity to try their hand at the putting greens–we were at trump national doral afterall (home to the blue monster golf course). they got all dolled up in golf apparel too, which was pretty adorable.

alexa and hayden’s personalities really come out in competitive environments. alexa is determined and focused. she is actually quite competitive and gets pretty upset if she meet her target! hayden, on the other hand, is super chill. he is actually a bit more athletically inclined, but he is very relaxed and enjoys making sure others are watching him as much as he enjoys playing the game.

work + play in miami!

May 24, 2015

it is a rare occasion that i get to fully blend work, family and a little vacation together, but a week ago i was able to do just that! as the creative director at ivanka trump i am often working on photo shoots for the brand. katie (the art director on my team, and one of my super close friends) and i decided that trump national doral was calling our name for our summer campaign shoot. if you follow me, ivanka or katie on instagram than you probably know that nate does most of our photo shoots (i feel pretty lucky to be married to such a talented photographer that i get to work with on the job as well). since we all would be down in miami for the shoot i thought i would take the opportunity to bring the kids and our nanny, norma, as well.
