Hard to believe it, but another NYFW has come and gone. With my first fashion week over a year behind me, I was ready this time around to get to share even more of the excitement that occurs over those few days with all of you. I’d been toying with the idea of vlogging for quite some time, and finally realized there was no time like the present, and no better time than fashion week to start! From the madness of the shows, to a peek at trying on wedding dresses, and a little bit of behind the scenes, I’ve…

The Vibe at Tadashi Shoji

Though NYFW has officially come to a close, I’m still on a fashion-high, and have lots of content up my sleeves to continue to share. There are certain shows that always stick out in my mind has high points during NYFW; Tadashi Shoji being one of them. Whenever asked what my favorite show I’d seen at fashion week so far, my answer was always a resounding, “Tadashi.” I had always loved watching the show from afar in years past, but when I had the opportunity to see the show in person for the first time last year, my appreciation for…

What a whirlwind of a week it has been! My second fashion week has come and gone in the blink of an eye.

I’ve literally been bursting at the seams to share everything I saw in New York with each of you, so be sure to stay tuned to the new tab at on my menu…

One Dress, Three Ways

One Dress, Three Ways

When taking the plunge on purchasing something new for my wardrobe, I always ask myself the cost per wear question. Will I be able get enough use out of this item to make it worth the price tag? If the answer is no, as much as I love something, I will usually walk away. However, if I can see myself styling a piece several different ways, or reaching for it on a daily basis, then it will be a strong contender to be coming home with me. When I saw this Anthropologie blazer dress on the hanger, I was immediately…

Hurricane Harvey

Hi lovlies – I’ll be keeping today’s post short and sweet because I can’t bring myself to write about anything other than what is on the forefront of my mind today. While The M.A. Times is typically a place of fashion, beauty, and travel, I can’t ignore what’s actually going on today in Texas because of Hurricane Harvey. All of my thoughts and love go out to those in Houston and those with friends and family there. Today, I wanted to dedicate my post to sharing ways we can all help, no matter where we are, fight for this cause.…

NYC Guide: Where We Ate

NYC Guide: Where We Ate

Restaurant: by Chloe Whenever Ryan and I visit a new city, one of our favorite things to do is walk around and explore. We never go with too many pre-set plans. Some of our best memories have come from putting our phones and maps away, and letting the day take us wherever. On our trip to Paris last fall, we discovered some of the most charming Boulangeries by doing this, and it’s become something that we’ve continued to do ever since. The trick comes when we visit a city we’ve been to several times before. It’s always so tempting to…

10 of the Best Midi Skirts

Maybe it has something to do with getting older, but as the years go by, I can’t help but enjoy adding inches onto the hemline of my skirts more and more. Though I still love a sweet mini skirt on occasion, I find myself gravitating more towards midi styles on a day to day basis. For both their ease of wear and ability to be styled a hundred different ways, my closet’s collection of midis has tripled in the last couple of years. Ten Favorite Midis Just because you’re covering more skin doesn’t mean the look has to be ultra-conservative.…

Cozy Transitional Layers

While most regions of the country are still facing some seriously scorching summertime temps, I was able to get away and catch some cooler air up in the mountains of North Carolina. It’s one of my favorite places to escape to, especially this time of year (you can see my travel guide here). Though it’s still far too early for the leaves to turn and nights by the bonfire to commence, we did have enough of a crisp to the air to start layering on our favorite cozy basics. This knit open-front cardigan from Anthropologie proved to be the perfect…

Making the Most of Your Maxis

Making the Most of Your Maxis

Remember that gorgeous maxi dress you bought for that special wedding or event you had to attend last summer? If you’re anything like the me, the answer is “barely,” because it’s been so long since you’ve had a reason to pull it back out of your closet. While it’s pretty much a given that a maxi can be dressed up for a special occasion (hello heels), it’s sometimes harder to justify pulling our prettiest pieces of our wardrobe back out for less formal days. With the help of accessories, it’s easy to turn your most loved, yet least worn, dresses…
