The Perfect Camel Coat
Last winter I started searching for a camel coat that fit me proportionately, was classic and well-made, and wasn't going to cost me an arm and a leg. Believe it or not but I spent the entire winter looking, buying and returning, and came up empty-ha ...

Dressing The Part
Have you ever heard the saying “dress for the job that you want, not the job that you have”? I’ve heard it countless times over the years, especially back when I used to work in more corporate environments.

My Favorite Outfit As Of Late
Can you really top walking out of your house on a Monday feeling like a million bucks? That's what this outfit does for me. I've been trying to pull myself together more than usual to kick off the beginning of a new week–they're coming and going too ...

Styling A Leather Skirt
Getting dressed up in the winter can be tough. It's hard enough to motivate yourself sometimes to do more than throw on a sweater and jeans and call it a day. After a while though I usually get an itch to wear something that's a little more exciting. ...

10 Sweaters Under $100
If there's one thing in my closet that I would say I've sort of figured out over the years it would be jeans and sweaters. You really just need a few good ones to invest in and then the rest can be more inexpensive fillers. If you live anywhere cold, ...

A Special Occasion LBD
I can't help but smile when I think back on this outfit (that was shot pre-winter) because it's what I wore the night that we got engaged. This adorable little black dress had just arrived that week and in the whirlwind that was the day that we got e ...

Bernardo Coat Giveaway
Most winter days you can find me in an outfit just like this one–I love finding coats that are not only warm, but fit my style perfectly. I fell in love with this sweater coat for a lot of reasons. It works well as a slightly oversized duster on me a ...

The Season Of Giving
No matter what holiday you celebrate this month, one thing rings true – it's the season of giving. While that message often gets lost in behind beautifully decorated trees, delicious food, and festive outfits, it's really what it's all about.

Sweaters & Skirts
If there's a staple combo that just makes me happy it's this. I live for the early fall weather where you can pair sweaters with skirts and you don't need a coat. It's the best!

If you live anywhere on the East Coast you're in the same boat as us – all of a sudden it went from a warm Fall straight to Winter. I couldn't bear to break out my winter coats right away and was so sad to have missed the boat on getting to wear swea ...

Dressing Up Your Winter Coat
Winter is all about being prepared – if you're bundled up appropriately it can be so enjoyable to stroll around outside and take in the sights or the snow. If you're not... it can be totally miserable. This past weekend was an extra chilly one and we ...

For all of my New Yorkers, I have a special and very exciting piece of news for you. Did you know that there's a Bloomingdale's Outlet in Manhattan? It was news to me, but the best kind.

How To Choose The Perfect Winter Coat
Finding the perfect winter coat is one of the most challenging aspects of living in a cold-weather city. I still cannot believe that when I moved to Chicago I only owned one coat. I have embarrassingly over-corrected at this point after living in col ...

My Favorite Cozy Sweater
After hearing everyone complain for weeks about our how warm our fall has been, their wishes have been granted. It's officially fall headed straight towards winter. I am using this time to pull out all of my favorite new sweaters and shoes before the ...

The Only Over The Knee Boots You’ll Need
I've seen girls post time and time again about the Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots (Thighland, Highland, Lowland, you name it) and how they were totally worth the money spent on them. I just couldn't bring myself to actually spend that much on a ...

Velvet Platform Heels
Let's talk about these heels. I'm sure you've seen velvet heels pop up everywhere this year! I saw them at the beginning of the season and knew that I needed to find a pair for dressing things up this season.

Everyday Ankle Booties
Style for me these days is all about knowing yourself and what you'll actually wear and what works for your body. I think back and laugh a bit at some of the trends I used to try in my early 20's. These days you could call what I wear in the fall mor ...

Grey Sweater Dress
We had an incredible weekend in the city after a few short days in Dallas doing some early wedding planning (!!!). It was a weekend for catching up with friends and soaking up the incredible weather.

My Fall Color Palette
I hinted at this earlier this week, but burgundy is the color of the season for me. Merlot, wine, burgundy – it's all the same to me and I'm here for it all season long.

Burgundy Lace Top
I admittedly love to dress for comfort most days before anything else. I'm lucky to be able to wear jeans to work and I usually gravitate towards things that are stylish, but still low maintenance and low key. I'm sure everyone goes through this, ...

Back To Black
It feels very fitting that my first post back in the city was in this virtually all black ensemble. There's something about colder weather that always leads me to purchasing items in my favorite and unfailing wardrobe color. This fall I really wanted ...

Preparing Your Fall Wardrobe
My goal this upcoming fall is to focus on pieces that I can get a lot of wear out of and feel like I'm contributing more to my overall "wardrobe" with each purchase. I fall very guilty in the summertime of looking for super trendy and extra colorful ...

Bell Sleeves
It's no surprise that this trend has recently exploded, especially this time of year when the subtle details and smallest rays of sunshine or delight make the most difference. Bell sleeves are a cute way to add a little something extra to your standa ...

Black + White Basics
Sometimes you have to just get back to the basics. The weather here in New York has been all over the place – one day it's sunny and high 40's and the next 3 are rainy and freezing. On most mornings when I'm getting dressed I've been thinking: sim ...

2017 Travels with Away
Woo hoo! January is in the books and I’m happy to say it was a really quiet one. By the end of the holidays I just felt like I was running on empty and needed to hit the reset button – like 8 times over. That being said I’m rested and ready to hit ...

Polished Winter Coat
The first person that came to mind when I saw this coat was Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) from Scandal. It just says I'm a smart, polished woman who gets it done. Right?  I've been channeling those vibes into this first month of the year and tryi ...

Soft Winter Hues
Do you ever feel like the only color you ever wear in the winter is black? Me too. I blame it slightly on living in New York and that being the color of choice, but I really wanted to soften my winter wardrobe up a bit. I shared another look earli ...
