The end of the school year is one of the most exciting times of the year for me. The satisfaction alone of knowing that I have almost completed another year of my schooling is enough to make me celebrate, so just thinking about all the events and celebrations coming up in the next few weeks makes me even more ready for what lies ahead!

This week for me, has signified the beginning of the end of my Freshman year. After being acknowledged with several awards at my schools academic award ceremony on Tuesday night, I realized that we have in fact made it to the end, and that now, we get to celebrate the year of hard work we have completed.

I’m sure that many people are in the same position as me of having a million things to go to, and not being entirely  sure of what to wear. That is why today, I decided to share what I wore to my brother, Gabriel’s Spring concert this morning, and share a little bit about what my day looked like.

This look is extremely versatile, having the potential to be as casual, sophisticated, or bold as you like. I simply adore this white Kate Spade dress. It is so comfortable and can be worn so many ways. Today, I decided to keep my look pretty basic, as its quite warm here in NYC at the moment. To stay comfy yet still dressed up, I strapped on my black metro watch by Kate Spade, carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag, slipped on a pair of plain black flats from Nine West, and called it a day. This outfit could have been brought to life even more with additional accessories, a jacket, or some bold shoes. However, I personally have been obsessed with the minimalistic look lately, and wanted to show that with this look. Perfect for any graduation, award ceremony, concert, or luncheon, this outfit can easily be molded to fit anyones personality and is a safe bet for all occasions.

We never really get the chance to explore together and simply enjoy each others company, so today, when the opportunity became available, neither of us hesitated to do so. From getting fro-yo, to exploring Barnes and Noble, to lunch dates, to debating political affairs, we had the most marvelous day. I had one of those moments today where I realized just how fast he’s growing up. It seems like yesterday I was teaching him how to play tag, and now we’re having long discussions on the French Revolution. I am so blessed to not only have Gabriel as my brother, but also my friend.

So there you have it folks! I hope you enjoyed todays post. If you would like to work with me or connect with me personally, please refer to my contact page.

I love living in NYC. Like, I really love it. Not only am I constantly faced with the the world’s most sought after scenery, food, and hotspots; I am additionally given so many opportunities that truly surpass even my wildest dreams. This summer, I have so much going on– and I couldn’t be more excited! Over the next couple of months, I will begin to show you all what I’m part of and working on. Although I can’t reveal all the exciting details just yet, I can tell you about my first project that seems to be approaching at a rapid rate. And that is: a musical.

Yes! I will be in Beauty and The Beast Jr. Off Broadway THIS SUMMER! AHHH! CAN YOU TELL I’M EXCITED?! This will be my third Off Broadway musical with my theatre company, CYT, and I am beyond thrilled to be part of it. I have met some of my closest friends through CYT, and the memories I make at rehearsals and shows, are some of my most cherished. If you would like to purchase tickets for Beauty and The Beast, click here. For even more information on CYT and the show, head to their website here. And if you would like to catch a glimpse of what it’s like to be in an Off Broadway musical, and see where we’re up to in the rehearsal process, check out the cast blog. Here, you will find pieces written by our cast members (including myself), and exclusive photos of our rehearsals.

There is much more I wish I could show you and tell you about, but for the mean time, I am so thrilled to be sharing this exciting project with you, and I truly hope that I will see some of your faces in the audience when the time comes!

Talk to you soon,

Madeline xo
