For a while now, I have been wanting to try out a pair of cropped jeans, but have been unsure of which brand to try. So when Zappos reached about a partnership with Joe’s Jeans and Steve Madden, I was excited to style an outfit around two brands that I love.read more >


I recently teamed up with NYDJ to create an outfit to share on Instagram, but I loved the pieces so much I wanted them share on the blog as well! My jeans, top and jacket are all from NYDJ and I loved the fit and style of each item. I also loved that I didn’t have to hem the flares because they were already the right length for me. That is a always win-win in my book!

Now that I am in my early 30s, I have really started to think about how I want to take care of myself and the changes I want to make to live a healthier lifestyle. There are a million things I know I should be better about (drinking more water, wearing sunscreen daily, flossing more regularly, to name a few) but the one thing that my Grandmother and Mother always told me was that it was important to take care of my skin. Not just my face, but my whole body. I’ll admit, I have gotten much better at taking my makeup off before I go to bed and moisturizing my face two times a day. But, I neglect the rest of my skin as far as moisturizing goes. The problem that I have aways found, is my skin is extremely dry and sensitive, and I’ve had far too many experiences where it will get super itchy after using the wrong body wash or lotion.

However, now that summer is right around the corner and I plan to be in a bathing suit for most of it, I no longer can hide behind an excuse not to take care of my skin head to toe. That said, I’ve decided to make a pledge and switch from not using any type of body moisturizer to making a conscious effort to do so everyday. It may not seem like a hard task, but habits are hard to break. I just have to keep reminding myself that I don’t want to have scaly, wrinkly, dry skin as I get older so I’m tackling the issue now and giving it my best shot!  I now encourage you all to make a pledge of your own! What healthier choices do you want to make in your life?

I seem to really be on a burgundy kick right now. Whether it’s tights, hats, bags or socks even, I love the color and have been incorporating it right and left in my recent outfits. I’ve been dying to pull together all of my favorite wine-colored accessories into one look, and this was the perfect opportunity.


Brown, like black tights, are a perfect go-to color for everyday wear, and are just as critical to a well-rounded wardrobe. I built this outfit around legwear, and these Super Opaque Tights in rich Espresso and Essential Boot Socks in Deep Burgundy, both from No nonsense, helped me stay cozy in my classic denim cut-offs. You can’t beat this great boot sock, especially when they’re so versatile and the perfect thickness; not too thick or too thin, but just right to wear with an ankle bootie. Paired with a cream sweater and camel coat, this outfit is perfect for me who’s always on the go.

Happy October 1st! I am so happy this month is here, aren’t you? There are a lot of great things happening in the next few weeks, which include my family coming to visit, a quick trip home to Seattle for a fun event (more on that soon!), plus a scenic drive up to Warwick Valley for apple and pumpkin picking. So, I’d say I have quite a few things to look forward to, which always makes me extremely happy and feel very lucky.
Another great thing about fall, is that it offers up the perfect temperature to start wearing jeans, blazers and cute boots. Case in point, these pretty, cognac-colored lace-up booties from Clarks have patiently been waiting to be worn, so I was happy to finally break them out last week for a walk in the neighborhood with the lovely Allister (who also snapped these photos for me). Gotta love autumn in New York. :) xo


For those of you who don’t know this about me, in addition to maintaining this blog and collaborating on brand campaigns, I work as a personal stylist and wardrobe consultant. Though I generally keep my job separate from this platform, it’s been my career for the past five years and is a huge part of my life. So when Staples asked me to use their Arc Notebook and demonstrate how I put it to use, I thought it was the perfect time to explain how I prepare for new or existing clients.


( First things first: When preparing to meet with a new or existing client, I will usually jot down notes or ideas beforehand: what we’ve discussed their current style is, what they want it to be and how we are going to accomplish that – whether it’s trends we want to try or places we want to shop. Much of what I eventually do with my clients is very hands-on and the final looks are captured on camera, but my preliminary process involves, a pen, a notebook, and often Pinterest to get the ball rolling and create a place to help my notes and ideas come to life. )


 As a child (of the 80s, I might add), I loved writing and would collect all sorts of stationery, sticky pads and notebooks. To this day, I have boxes of pretty paper and so many random half used notebooks, it’s not even funny. In an age where everything is electronic and done on computers, iPads and iPhones, I find myself even more drawn to putting pen to paper. There is something satisfying about seeing my ideas and thoughts come to life on a fresh sheet of paper. As I’ve gotten older, much of the work I do requires lists and note taking. I have come to rely on larger, sturdier notebooks that aren’t flimsy and are easy to flip through. With that said, I am happy to say that this Arc Notebook fits all of my criteria and has been perfect for client meetings, jotting notes and just generally keeping me organized. Do you guys have a system when it comes to keeping yourself on track?

I’ve always loved making fun mini films on my iPhone or back in the day, walking around with my video camera capturing funny moments of my friends, but I never took the time to truly edit the film, add music or make it into anything worth sharing. So, when I was introduced to a special film making application by French Connection, which allows you to make a unique scene from pre-made film clips from their new campaign, I jumped at the chance to give it a try.
All the backdrops are set in the lovely town of Portofino, Italy and is all about whimsy and romance. What’s fun is, it’s all up to you and takes a matter of maybe five minutes. You get to be the director and create the perfect mini film, all edited together for you at the end.
The next best thing is, once you have created your film, you can enter it in their contest and get a chance to win a trip to the Sydney Film Festival, complete with a shopping spree, and your scene will be played live in French Connection stores as part of their campaign.
You can watch my mini film here, which I based off of two best girlfriends that are on a spring break together in Europe, which is very reminiscent of how I spent my junior year abroad with one of my best friends, frolicking around the mediterranean coast – just us being girlie, and it was a blast. Hope you enjoy!
Just wanted to do a little recap of all the great things Chevy Malibu has been doing lately. For those of you just joining, you can read all about my adventure with Helena here and here, where we drove a brand new, red Malibu upstate for a weekend getaway. Then there was the fashion show and meet and greet with Isaac in LA, that sadly I couldn’t attend, but my good friend Helena did – view her cute photos here. And now, the Isaac Mizrahi x Chevy Malibu collection, that I have been patiently waiting for, is available on Living Social, which you can view and purchase here! Lastly, I will be doing a giveaway next Friday with all the items, which will include the blouse, driving moccasins, red colored skinny jeans and a double handle tote bag. Helena is doing her giveaway today, so head on over and enter since there is even more of a chance for you all to win these great pieces!

P.S. Here is a cute video of Isaac and his muses to give you a better idea of what this great program is all about!
