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 ...

My Hidden Gem For Designer Deals in NYC
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 ...

The Perfect Plaid Top For Now & Later
It wasn’t until I moved up here that I really started appreciating and loving fall. In fact, it’s one of my favorite seasons in the city and is definitely the best time of year to come visit. If you ask any New Yorker now they will likely agree with ...

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 ...

What My Days Really Look Like
I've been struggling with inspiration lately and have found myself drawn to the posts by friends sharing more about what their real lives are like, so today I'm going to share what my day to day really looks like! My days are actually pretty routi ...

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 ...

Adding Color To Your Winter Wardrobe
Color can be very tricky. Seasonally I am a total chameleon – in the summer all you see me wearing is color, but as soon as the weather changes it’s like the life and color just disappear (sort of mirroring my feelings about it, I guess!). I gave ...

New Year Closet Cleanout
How to build a wardrobe that you love – it's an ongoing learning experience and something that will continue to change every year. I just finished a major closet cleanout and re-org this weekend and had to take a step back and look at things from a n ...

Fewer Better Things
It's hard to believe that the year is almost over and that in just a few days I'll be 30. How did that happen?! I've been thinking about it a lot over the past few months, mostly because it doesn't seem possible, but also to gather some thoughts o ...

Casual Winter Outfit
Christmas is almost here and I've been running around like crazy trying to make sure I'm ready for it! We leave for Texas in the morning and had a packed weekend, so it's really been a late night endeavor to finish all of my errands in time. I'm sure ...

The Gift Of Cozy
Now that we’re in crunch time, if you haven’t started your holiday shopping you better hit the pedal! I’ve shared some ideas, but today want to talk about giving the gift of cozy. Living in 2 of the most desperately cold cities in the U.S. will re ...

GIVEAWAY: Bernardo Down Jacket
I have such a tough time packing for weekends away or trips in the winter and I'm sure you can relate. Coats are so bulky, so don't even think about bringing multiple or needing one to work out in. This packable Bernardo jacket is a lifesaver if you ...

Holiday Sparkle
'Tis the season to really shine! I love the holidays for a million reasons, but especially love getting a chance to get dressed up and a little extra fancy. Between company parties, holiday parties with friends and our annual family friend "Christmas ...

Lace High Neck Top
Most days when I stand in our closet and try to decide what to wear to get dressed I end up in some kind of top and jeans. Admittedly, I'm a blouse girl. I don't know how it happened, but I have more tops than I know what to do with. I fell in love w ...

Making Date Nights Special
When you live with your significant other, every night is kind of a date night by definition. In my single days a date night meant that we were going to see each other and so I would mayyybe try a little harder getting ready that morning and make sur ...
