Shopbop is having one of their dangerous sales right now, which is going on now until November 30th. It’s called the Buy More, Save More sale and it’s pretty spectacular. (I’ve had to be really careful not to go on a shopping spree!) But sometimes these sales can feel a little overwhelming and you might not know where to start, so I pulled together 24 of my favorite things that I would say fall under items I would recommend you have in your closest or the “staples” category. Such as a good pair of leather pants (they are 25 percent off!) cozy scarves, comfortable boots/booties etc.

Also, I thought it would be fun to share past photos of me wearing some of my favorite pieces that I got from Shopbop that are now on sale!

 Ok, enough of me gabbing away, I’ll let you get shopping. Good luck!

Can you believe that Christmas is only a month away? That blows my mind. Where does the time go?! I think I must say, and feel that way every year, but still. Anyway, with the holidays just about in full swing, I wanted to kick things off  by rolling out the first category of the My Style Pill Gift Guide, The Hostess!

I love shopping for these types of gifts so naturally it was the first section that I wanted to post, but sometimes it can be hard to come up with options that are not only thoughtful but affordable too. I rounded up ten of my favorite things at all different price points (who doesn’t love cute champagne flutes or fancy chocolate?) and am excited to share them with you guys. Happy shopping!

Product Descriptions:

1. Mini Donut Maker  Whip up a quick batch of six delicious, perfectly shaped mini donuts at home without the fuss of filling the deep fryer or firing up the oven.

2. Assorted Toasting Flutes An elegant set of 6 stemless champagne flutes. Each glass has a metallic, celebratory phrase in a different language.

3. All In Good Taste Book Filled with how-tos, personal essays, anecdotes, recipes, and a liberal dash of style, all in good taste will transform you into the hostess with the mostest.

4. Diamond Ice Cube Tray Flexible silicone ice cube tray that produces diamond-shaped ice cubes. Fits six ice cubes at a time.

5. “Give Wine” Curated Wine Pairings Carefully thought out pairings are transformed into beautifully presented gifts thanks to our custom-designed gift boxes.

6. Mast Brothers Chocolate Two brothers started a company that offer a variety of single estate and single origin chocolates from around the world as well as their own house blend.

7. Foodie Dice Roll the dice and see what’s cooking with this foodie-friendly set that makes everyday meals extraordinary.

8. S’well ‘Sparkling Champagne’ Stainless Steel Water Bottle  This 25 oz sleek, double-walled stainless-steel water bottle holds a whole bottle of champagne, featuring ThermaS’well™ fabrication that keeps cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours

9. Bodum Copper Coffee Collection Sip your coffee in style with this sleek Coffee Set from Bodum. Each Chambord-inspired piece features a glass vessel and sturdy copper-finished steel body.

10. GlassyBaby Candle Holders (plus tea lights) This company started in Seattle, Washington and primarily carries handmade glass votives, known as a “glassybaby”. There are more than four hundred colors and the company donates money from sales to charities helping cancer patients with costs during chemotherapy, and other charities “dedicated to healing”.

Hey guys! So remember this post when I wore this burgundy leather jacket? Well, I thought it would be fun to go one step further and create three varying looks based off of my original outfit. But instead of a traditional remix, which means wearing the same exact pieces different ways, this is something that I like to call My Style Recipe. As long as you have similar looking pieces, you can recreate this look, easy peasy!


What you’ll need to recreate this look:

1. Leather Jacket | 2. Blanket Scarf | 3. White Tee

4. Boyfriend Jeans |5. Aviators | 6. Pumps | 7. Favorite Tote

Ok so now let’s focus on the three looks below. Look one is the closest to my outfit that I’m wearing in the photo above. I wasn’t able to find each exact item online since my scarf and bag are from past seasons, but hopefully it will give you an idea of what to wear. Look two and three are varying versions of my original look just based off different colors and styles (i.e. black and white outfit versus cream, navy and camel), but again, all giving off very similar vibes. Does that make sense? If you have ANY questions, please leave them in the comments below!

P.S. I also created a fun vlog-selfie-style YouTube video sharing three more looks I put together based around the jacket with some pieces from my closet. So, if you think about it, that’s actually SIX different potential outfits all styled around one burgundy leather jacket! If you like this jacket as much as I do, you can purchase it here! Win, win!

J.Crew Edit

After spending a couple days in Newport, Rhode Island, I am in full prep mode and loving it. So I thought I would channel that aesthetic (via J.Crew) and share some pieces that might make up a potential outfit I would wear while touring the mansions and walking around downtown Newport.

P.S. J.Crew is having a SALE right now, online and in stores for 25 percent off using the code SHOPTOIT! :)

Coat / Sweater / Shirt / Pants / Boots / Scarf / Socks / Bracelet / Bag

Happy shopping! xo


So we just had our first day in Newport, Rhode Island at The Chanler and it was pretty awesome…

Just some of my favorite beauty products I’ve been loving lately.

What are some of yours?

I’ve been wearing UGGs for over ten years now — ever since my parents bought me a pair for my first winter in New York. I now have a couple pairs – one short and one tall pair in the traditional chestnut color and I love how comfortable and cozy they are; especially when it’s freezing outside. So when UGG approached me about trying out their new Classic Slim style, I of course couldn’t say no! I was curious to see how they would look and feel compared to the traditional style, but they are arguably the most comfortable shoes I own and I love the new silhouette, which hugs your foot and calf creating a sleeker look.This holiday, UGG is currently focusing their new campaign on the idea of warmth, comfort and love with a concept called #hugitout. I love this idea because: one, the boots feel like they are hugging me when I wear them, and, two, I love hugs – giving and receiving – so I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos of me and Casey hugging in a few of our favorite ways.

Shop my ED by Ellen Heels.


I wore this outfit yesterday to run up to 18th and Broadway to preview the new ED by Ellen (as in Ellen DeGeneres!) spring ’16 home and ready to wear collection. My favorite pieces were the gorgeous dark gray dinner plates, the indigo throw pillows and the marble cheese board, which aren’t available quite yet, but when they are I will be sure to share them with you! Afterward, I met up with a client for a quick chat about a new dress she is planning on wearing to an upcoming family event, before running home to meet up with Krystal to do some outfit shooting.

Styling Notes:

Originally I had on little ankle booties, but at the ED by Ellen preview, they were kind enough to gift me these gorgeous gray felt pumps, which I am obsessed with, so of course I wanted to wear them immediately. They are super comfortable too!

Can we also discuss this burgundy leather jacket? I spotted it at a Forever 21 preview last week and fell in love with it. It’s quite a bold shade but really pretty so I wanted to play off the richness of the color by pairing it with a scarf that had complimentary colors. It comes with a removable faux fur collar, which is the same color as the jacket. In this instance, I removed it, although I may wear the two together, but I actually think it will look really cool draped over a classic black overcoat for a dramatic touch.

Anyway, as you all know, this kind of outfit is my go-to look because it’s so easy to throw on and still feel put together. So with that said, I’m thinking about creating some collages recreating this type of outfit for you guys but in different color ways so you can also easily get the look! Would you guys be into that type of post? Let me know in the comments below!
