Venice is beautiful. I know you can see in photos how picturesque it is, but that is nothing in comparison to seeing it with your own eyes. I wish we had some more time here, but the 6 hours we had were enough to get the feel, walk around the non-touristy areas and go to some of the usual tourist spots.

This past Monday I attended one day of New York Fashion week. Sadly I was in Florida for a good chunk of it and missed some events I was invited to. But Monday I went to 2 events and got a nice taste. I could never do the full week - takes a lot of energy!

For those of you that don't know me - I'm a walker when I go to the city. I like the exercise and I really really dislike taking the Subway alone because I'm afraid I'll get lost. MY first show of the day was almost 3 miles away from the other. So my choices were: run 2.7 miles, find a cab (also terrifying for someone with social anxiety) or brave the Subway; otherwise I would have missed my second event.

Luckily for me, Blacklane came to my rescue when they asked if I would like to try out their car service. I was easily able to make my reservation through their website and smartphone app. All you have to do is share your pickup location, destination and time of pickup! Easy peasy! And you can cancel up to an hour ahead of your scheduled pickup if something changes. And finding my drivers was very simple; I got a text message a couple hours before letting me know my drivers name and a second text when they arrived at the pickup location along with their phone number in case I needed to call. Stress free and you get to feel fancy for a few minutes. The fares are a bit pricey (around $50 for each) but that included tip as well and you get the peace of mind knowing your ride will be on time.

*Blacklane provided me with 2 free trips in exchange for a mention in this post*

Leanne Marshall: I was a huge fan of Leanne when she was on Project Runway back in 2008 (and won!) Her collection was full of flowy dresses in amethyst, tanzanite and nudes. My favorites were obviously the purples and then one really beautiful tan dress with embellishment on the bust. I also loved the final look, a tanzanite gown with bead and organza embellishment.  While simple, the dresses had beautiful braided detailing as well as a bit of sparkle thanks to sequins! Some of the dresses are available online now - shop here!

Sherri Hill: Admittedly I hadn't heard of Sherri before getting my invite to the show but I always enjoy discovering new designers so I was excited to attend. The show is definitely geared toward the younger crowd with prom-type dresses so it wasn't totally my style but it was a really fun show. There were some adorable child models as well and the crowd cheered every time one walked out. Unfortunately I didn't get any good photos from the show due to people standing up and blocking the view.

I also got to meet Aly Raisman and Nick Fradiani which was pretty darn exciting! For those of you that don't know, I was a gymnast for 13 years so being able to meet an Olympic gymnast I admire was amazing! And Nick was the winner of American Idol season 14 and is from Connecticut! I rarely voted on American Idol but I voted for him, super talented!

I've been to Universal so many times in the past 3 years but this trip I did something I've never done. The Men in Black Immigration Tour. We were lucky enough to be allowed into part of the ride that most people don't get to experience: the ground floor of the immigration room. We were also able to go to the new restaurant, Toothsome Chocolate Emporium, which doesn't officially open until later this month. It is steampunk themed and is super cool inside! I highly recommend it.

This was another day where I didn't take dedicated outfit photos so it's mostly a photo diary. How adorable is the Hogwarts Express conductor!? Loved him.

No trip to Florida is complete without a visit to Disney! I didn't really take any outfit photos while we were there, was having too much fun! So here this post is mostly a photo diary of the day. We were lucky enough to get into the Beauty and the Beast restaurant (Be Our Guest) without reservations and managed to go on all the main rides. Was definitely a long day, but well worth it! Disney was all decked out for Fall/Halloween which I had never seen before, always something new to explore!

Last week I took a somewhat spontanious trip to Florida with some friends. We hit up the usual haunts - Universal Studios and Disney. It was still in the 90s there so light dressing was essential. So I brought a few tank tops and shorts and stayed as cool as possible!

I wore this a couple weekends ago to visit Mystic Aquarium with a friend. Excuse the not so great photos, took these with my iPhone, ha ha. We had a lovely day watching penguins (and fun fish), doing some window shopping at the Mystic shops and ended at our favorite restaurant for dinner where we proceeded to stuff our faces with fish & chips, shrimp, honey butter bread and onion rings! YUM!
