Happy Wine Wednesday! Today’s wine is a Pinot Noir by Alit wine, which originates from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. I brought a bottle of this tasty vino to a dinner party that Helena hosted a couple Friday nights ago and it was a big hit…
Over the weekend I popped into a boutique in Soho that I hadn’t been inside of for years and came out with this incredibly soft and cozy cream chenille sweater. Admittedly, I’ve worn in a lot since Saturday so I thought it would be fun to share two easy ways to remix it simply by swapping out different shoes and accessories.

How’s everyone feeling on this lovely Monday? Today is a busy one for me – lots of errands and running around before my trip to New Orleans on Tuesday, which I am very excited about. I will be speaking on a panel with Krystal Bick for the W Hotels What She Said panel where we will be discussing our thoughts, sharing our stories and answering questions on what’s it like to be creative women entrepreneurs, and how we can all continue to make an impact on the world with what we do. It’s going to be such a positive and inspiring week and I can’t wait to meet any of you that might be attending!
On another note, I wanted to quickly discuss these OTK boots by Marc Fisher before I sign off. I am officially in love with them and can’t wait to pair them with everything I own. The color is perfect plus they are comfortable! You can purchase them here or check out 12 other similar options (ranging in price points) below:
Here’s to a happy and productive Monday! xo

This week has been quite a doozy, amiright? I decided to take the past few days off from posting because I guess it just didn’t feel right sharing my regular content on here when everything felt so…discombobulated. And since I don’t know your political views, I will just speak for myself and say it’s been a very emotional, upsetting and shocking past few days. I considered writing a post on everything that has happened and how I feel, but instead I am going to let my dear friend Krystal who wrote this beautiful and poignant blog post, take it away.
And with that said, I’m keeping this short and sweet today, so here are a few links from from around the web…
Here is a list of some great causes to donate to if you’re interested.
I am going to try out this silk pillow case, which I have been so curious about. Have you guys tried it or anything like it?
One of my long time, favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo had commissioned ten original illustrations to celebrate Hillary’s win, which many of her readers requested to still see. I already belong to her newsletter, but if you’d like to as well, you can sign up here.
Personal question for those of you on birth control. What are your thoughts on getting an IUD?
If you are suffering from puffy eyes or lack of sleep over the past few days, I highly recommend this eye gel, which is super soothing. I keep mine in the fridge so that it’s super cooling when I apply it.I was supposed to be in DC with White House Black Market on a two-day press trip, but I have been battling horrible stomach pains, so I ended up staying home. However, even though I couldn’t be there with them, I wanted to share two current favorite pieces from the brand that I have been loving. This red leather is just as vibrant in person and super soft, and I love how this blazer is perfectly tailored and has a great silhouette.
Alright my loves. Thanks for hanging in there with me and I will be back to my regular posting schedule next week! xoxo
Lately all I’ve been wanting to wear are chic sneakers, and since I am on my feet so often throughout the day, it’s just not practical or good for my feet to be wearing heels running around the city for hours on end. Needless to say I have definitely been loving the resurgence of wearing cute tennis shoes (that’s what I grew up calling them) with everything from skinny jeans, cropped flares or skirts and love how instead of feeling like I’m dressing down, I feel really pulled together.
This roundup was prompted by a comment my friend Monica left on my Instagram the other day wondering where my gray sneakers were from and that she was in the market for a cute new pair. So I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite sneaker styles that are available online right now. Hope you enjoy!

I bought this sweater after I saw it on Helena because I love how it has an attached neck that looks like a thick choker, as well as cool, slightly belled-out sleeves. It’s super cozy and warm and hope to buy it in gray, but have to wait for my size to be in stock again. For me, the only issue with this sweater is it’s sort of low cut and without a tank underneath, it can be a tad exposing…
I’ll admit, I don’t always buy into trends because I tend be more into buying classic pieces or items I can wear for years to come, but then again, playing around with trends can be pretty fun. For instance, crushed velvet, chokers, chunky heeled boots and bodysuits are all back and to be honest, it’s both weird and amazing to see styles that you wore as an adolescent or teen come back around when you’re in 30s. At first it’s sort kind of conflicting – do you push back and refuse to get on the bandwagon because it reminds you too much of your youth or do you say screw it, and embrace it by putting a new twist on the trend? In this case, I am all about embracing the fact that velvet is having a major moment right now, so I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of some pieces from around the web that I have my eye on. What do you guys think of wearing velvet? Are you into it? Let me know in the comments. Click on the images below to shop! xo
