Vlog: I Wasn’t Going to do This, But…

Happy Tuesday Lovelies! I’m so excited to share that I’m officially kicking off my weekly vlogs this week! Instead of waiting for upcoming trips or special events, I’m looking forward to sharing the in’s and out’s of my daily life. Whether I’m at home, out shopping, or jet-setting off on my next adventure, all are parts of me that I’m excited to be able to share. The M.A. Times is all about sharing stories of style, beauty, and travel, and doing it via YouTube is the next step that I’m so ready for! In this video, come with me as…

Current Color Craving: Vibrant Red

If you were to take a peek into my wardrobe, you would notice one thing right off the bat. About 95% of my closet is either white, gray, black, or navy. I have a select handful of colored pieces that I’m comfortable in, and they’re probably the least worn items in my closet. If something comes in white or black, you can guarantee that’s what I’ll buy it in. During NYFW, it’s always the perfect opportunity to step out of your comfort zone when it comes to dressing, and that’s exactly what I did. I fell in love with this…

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 Vlog

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…

The Vibe at Noon by Noor

What a whirlwind of a week it has been! My second fashion week has come and gone in the blink of an eye. Since leaving for NYFW this time last week, I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of some amazing events, be inspired by stunning collections I saw on the runways, and of course, become completely enthralled with the hustle and bustle of the city. 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…

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…

How to Style your LBD for Summer

When I think summer wardrobe, my mind immediately goes towards whites, pastels, and floral printed fabrics. I’ve always followed the simple equation of higher temps equals a lighter colored ensemble. However, only a month into summer and scorching temps, I’m already finding myself reaching for something a little more unpredictable for this time of year. Instead of my usual pastel picks, I started gravitating towards darker shades – in particular my little black dresses that have been sitting neglected since last fall. I was pleased to discover that some of my favorite LBD’s remain completely appropriate for this season (regardless…

The Skirt of Summer

Every summer it’s inevitable that I fall prey to at least one trend. Whether it be 90’s slip dresses or cut-out dresses, I can always look back on each summer and link it to a specific fashion trend. Becoming obsessed with one trend in particular this summer, however, was easier than ever. It was actually love at first sight – and then began the hunt to find just the perfect piece to add to my Summer 2017 Wardrobe. What was this infactuating item, you may ask? Well, let me introduce you to the ruffle midi. Ever since I saw my…

Sunshine Jumpsuit in Charleston

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a retro-inspired piece, especially during summertime travels. When venturing to charming historic towns, I always feel it’s the perfect time to become more playful with my wardrobe and allow those vintage vibes to shine. The moment I saw this sunshine yellow jumpsuit at Anthropologie, I instantly knew it would be coming with me on all of my summer escapes. There’s something about an all over print (that slightly reminds me of something you’d see on a 1970’s style wallpaper) that I just can’t resist. Paired with a culotte-style leg and a crossbody…

Best of Summer Wedding Attire

Once spring and summer hits, it means wedding season is in full swing. Chances are, there’s probably at least one on your calendar for this season. Being in the midst of wedding planning myself, wedding wardrobes are currently front and center on my mind – including what dress code will be (casual, black tie, etc.) and picturing all of my guests – and what they’ll be wearing – on my big day! When planning a look for attending a wedding, there’s a few things to take into consideration. Firstly, is it formal or casual? Take tips from how fancy the…
