Once fall hits, my music taste goes from upbeat and summery to more quiet and folksy. My favorite genre in any season is indie folk – but in the fall I really have a hard time listening to anything else. I’m always looking for new bands to listen to, so I’ve mashed up some undiscovered talent with other songs you may have already heard!
And if there’s any artist/song you think I should check out, let me know in the comments or on any of our social feeds!
Just click the image below to start listening to some of my current faves!
There is nothing better than a cozy slouchy sweater in the fall! If you’re searching for that perfectly loose fall shirt, you don’t have to look so far. I usually just find a style of shirt I like and then go up two or three sizes! I did just that with this shirt. I liked the style, but the only size left was a few sizes up than what I typically wear. I bought it anyways and now it’s one of my go-to shirts for a lazy weekend or when you’re going out to eat, haha!
If you haven’t already noticed from our blog content, we frequent NYC food markets. Tara and I were actually just talking the other day, and came to the realization that we have been to every single one of them. Every. One. No joke! So when I heard that Bowery Market opened up this summer, we were there right away. We checked it out for the first time in August and snagged a few pics to give you guys a preview of how cool their vibes are.
Cai and I our big fans of NYC food markets because you’re not limited to a restaurant’s cuisine of choice and you don’t have to deal with that one friend who always wants to split the check, haha! 😛 This time we went to one of our favorite markets, Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place.
This week we are featuring fashion illustrator, Joanna Baker! Joanna is a testament to taking the leap from the corporate world and becoming your own boss. Joanna took that initial risk and started her very own illustration business. Since then she has garnered recognition from some of the fashion industry’s top names and we can definitely see why. We love her illustration style in all its pretty details and chic accents! Read on to learn more about Joanna’s story.

: Hi, I’m Joanna! I currently live in Manhattan with my husband and our cat, Junebug. Originally from Maryland, we’ve lived in NYC for a little over eight years now. (Junebug is born and bred a New York City girl, though)
Thank goodness for dresses and skirts in the summer! We have been going through quite the heat wave in NYC and my swing dress has come to the rescue. It’s so easy breezy and takes no effort to throw on in the morning and style. You can really change up this look depending on what accessories you pair with it, but this time I went for a casual summer vibe with a long Half United Hunger Necklace, Pura Vida Bracelets and a Freely Clothing Bracelet.
After sitting inside all day working it’s always great to find an outdoor oasis to relax and have a cool drink in the city. Of course, there are all the great rooftop bars in NYC, but sometimes you may want a change from your go-to happy hour spot. If you’re a latte or greek yogurt lover, Greecologies may be your new summer hangout.
This week we are featuring Berna Buen of design company, BLUESOUTH. Berna creates awesome cement jewelry and housewares. Yes you read that correctly, she creates her pieces using cement! We love how she works with such an industrial material and makes it into something usable, wearable and stylish. To learn more about Berna’s entrepreneurial and creative journey, read on!

: I grew up in a small city off the gulf coast in Texas, Growing up I was a beach child I lived to be in the water, One of my fondest memories is how me and my brothers would swim so far out in the ocean we would land on small islands, you couldn’t see them from shore but the water became shallow again and you could stand or sit on a piece of earth. I eventually moved away to start on my grown up life I went to California, then moved to Austin TX where I got married and started a family before finally settling down in Dallas, TX. I am the proud mother of 2 very strong willed girls, they are a challenge but I cant blame them I know where they got it from.
24! Woohooo! My 24th birthday just passed and I wanted to let you in on the festivities. Ever since we were little Cai and I decorate the house for each other and this year Cailin set up this awesome photo station with gold balloon letters.
There is nothing like an ice cream on a hot summer day in the city. Cailin and I were craving soft serve one day and decided it was the perfect opportunity to try Milk Bar’s cereal milk flavor. We went to their East Village location which always seems to have a line, but it moves fairly quickly. This location has a set of benches outside, but the inside is designed purely as an ordering window.
