I cleaned out my closet yesterday (again) and as I sifted through all my clothing, I realized the older I get the more I’m drawn to classic pieces – as in items I will have for a while and not get sick of within a year.
This would be an outfit that I definitely throw on when I’m “off-duty” so I decided to share it with you guys hoping you’ll share your go-to outfits with me!
On Thursday we drove out of New York City in a beautiful 2016 Volvo XC90, that the brand loaned to us for our road trip to Cleveland. It took us eight hours to get there (one hour longer than normal because of road work and traffic), which isn’t terrible but definitely isn’t short either, so I wanted to make sure I was prepared to sit in a car for that long and be as comfortable as possible.

As someone who works from home for the most part, I usually wear fairly casual clothing when it’s just me sitting at my desk. But there are also plenty of days that I have meetings or client sessions and I want to take my style up a notch and wear something I feel good in. On my busiest days, I definitely wear a few different “hats” whether it’s “blogger, stylist, friend or girlfriend,” but I always want to make sure that my outfits transition effortlessly into whatever it is I might be doing. I find that during the summer I am drawn to pretty, lightweight shift dresses that I can easily dress up or down and this pretty white linen dress with elegant embroidery from Tommy Bahama is the perfect piece to wear to a meeting then straight out to happy hour with friends. Case in point: I wore this look earlier to a causal client session (a pair of simple flat sandals were in my bag – see my styling tip below) straight out to drinks with Casey and a few mutual colleagues at Parlor for some after work drinks.Styling tip:
Stash a high heel sandal in your bag to swap out your flat sandals, and a favorite accessory such as a statement necklace or a couple of bracelets to elevate your look in seconds. Or if jewelry isn’t your thing, grab your favorite red lipstick to really pack some punch!

Happy Friday loves. How was everyone’s week? Tomorrow is my Birthday and I am very excited. The celebrating actually started last night when Casey surprised me with tickets to see Romeo & Juliet at Lincoln Center. As someone who danced ballet and pointe for many years, watching this performance was pretty incredible. I definitely got choked up at the end when the dancers came out and took their bows. Such amazing talent!
Tonight we are getting together at my new favorite spot in Williamsburg, Midnights, (remember this post?) for a low key gathering with lots of rosé, oysters and french fries. Saturday is my actual Birthday, but I have no idea what we are doing because it’s a surprise, which I love. I’ll be sure to share the details with you guys next week. :)
Happy Birthday to all you June babies and I hope everyone has a fun and fabulous weekend!
Lately I’ve been into wearing simple pieces like jeans and button-downs and adding fun accessories to pack a bit of punch. With this outfit I opted for some pattern play (stripes x leopard) and finally got to break out my new strappy lace-up heels from Schutz.
This past Saturday was a busy one. I tried a Tabata core class for the first time, which makes laughing, sneezing or getting up from sitting down, particularly painful because I am so sore! Casey and I had a nice breakfast at one of our favorite cafes and then had a slew of parties to go to (one going away party for a dear friend of mine, one Birthday party for a client of mine and a wrap party for Casey’s job at Netflix), and had a great time bouncing around the city all night.
Now onto the outfit! I just bought this jumpsuit from Zara and loved how breezy and comfortable it was to wear…read more >
Just a quick hello from California! We are off to Disneyland today (YAY!) but I wanted to share a couple snaps my Dad took yesterday. I will share more photos in a roundup post once I’m back from this trip, but for now here is what I wore during our visit to Palos Verdes.
