I was in Brooklyn for a few days with one of my besties, Meagan, as my travel partner. The excuse was to attend a blogging awards event, I was a finalist for a Golden Link Award for Best Influencer Monetization. It was a formal event and I always love an excuse to buy a new dress!

After a full day of hanging out in the city we got ready and I wanted to capture the special occasion right in Brooklyn with photographer Fernando Ceballos! These darling homes were around the corner from our hotel, Bond and State Street.

When I thought about how I wanted to style my hair I thought about the movie in The Life of Adeline.

I loved the scene when Adeline attends a formal dinner meeting her future love and her hair was swept to the side with a comb. I searched high and low for the right look and found this rose comb which comes in several colors. It’s so easy to style it and stays put all night!

I was obsessed with finding a red clutch and stumbled upon this studded clutch by Marni and it was just the right size! My pearl ring is by Rebecca Minkoff and it’s one of my favorites (also may need to get this one).

I found the perfect white polish for summer – and I’m a fan of the almond shaped nail. I’ve been steadily growing my nails out so I could shape them just for this event and now I’ll try to maintain them for as long as I can. Typing can be a little harder but I think it’s worth it! Off to celebrate!
