Spent the day yesterday walking around the Marais and stopped off to admire the Place des Vosges, which is one of my favorite spots in Paris. Afterward I grabbed brunch at Les Philosophes, then spent the afternoon reading and getting some work done at a nearby cafe. I leave tonight to fly back to New York, which is always bittersweet for me when Paris is involved, but I feel so refreshed, inspired and ready to take on the holidays and new beginnings. Hope this week has been a happy and productive for everyone so far! xo

Just a quick hello from Paris! Quite the last minute and very spontaneous trip, seeing that I was just here a couple weeks ago, but the stars aligned and an opportunity presented itself for me to fly back, so I jumped at the chance to do so. I have some meetings lined up as well as shooting a few things for work, but I hope to find some time to relax and soak up as much of Paris as I can before I fly back on Thursday. Stay tuned for more outfit shots and you can follow me on Instagram here!

I can’t tell you how much use I got out of this faux fur vest while I was in Paris. I layered it under almost everything, and I loved how it added that bit of added luxe to every outfit.
Overall, I wore and remixed all the basic pieces that I brought, such as this pleated gray skirt (remixed here and here!) with tights, boots and my go-to black bag. I think it’s true what they say (or what I’ve come to believe) that when you pack for certain trips, it’s a good idea to keep your clothing fairly monochromatic. In this case, it was black, gray and navy, and it definitely worked for me. :)

More photos from my recent trip to Paris! Packing for this type of trip can feel so overwhelming, especially if where you are going, the weather is cold, because you have to factor in bulky layers. I decided to try and keep things simple by bringing easy pieces I could mix and match and then pull the whole look together with a tailored overcoat, or as Jenna Lyons like to call it, “my candy wrapper.”

Seeing that it was frigid most days while we were wandering around quaint Parisian streets, it ended up not really mattering what I was wearing underneath because my jacket was kept on at least 75 percent of the time. But I made sure to bring a coat (or coats rather) I love and this navy one from Zara definitely did the trick. And on days that I wanted to spice it up a bit, I simply layered it with my favorite faux fur vest to give it a dressier feel.

montauk-refinery29-getaway-01

 This past weekend, I was lucky enough to spend a weekend away with some friends at the Refinery29 house in Montauk. The house was amazing and the weather was pretty perfect too. We spent most of the time lounging at the house, by the pool and in hammocks, but managed to venture out to have a couple amazing meals and spend time strolling around town. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the weekend!

One of my favorite parts of the evening was when we would turn on the lights in the backyard, turn up the music and hang by the bonfire toasting s’mores.

Thanks again, Refinery29, for hosting us, and to Sunglass Hut, Malibu Rum and Olay Fresh Effects for all the great goodies from the weekend. xo

If you guys remember from this post, back in January I was lucky enough to travel to Copenhagen with ECCO for Copenhagen Fashion Week, alongside amazing company from MarieClaire.comRefinery 29 and Boston Fashionista. We spent our time learning all about ECCO and how their products are made. We saw the changing of the guards and toured Georg Jensen’s headquarters. We dined at wonderful places like Madklubben Steak and The Royal Cafe, and tried out “Nordic tapas” with wine. And, we of course found time for some shopping where I found the most amazing gray leather vest at a little consignment boutique just off the Strøget. All in all, it was a wonderful trip and I left loving ECCO and Copenhagen even more than before. Thank you to everyone at ECCO for a fantastic trip!
So now, as a fun treat for you guys, ECCO is giving a way one of the three bags above! All you have to do to enter, is leave your name and email in the comment section below along with which bag you would like to win. I will be picking a winner one week from today and will notify you via email. Thanks and good luck! xo
