My New York City Style
New York City is one of the greatest places in the entire world for fashion inspiration. When I moved here 2 years ago (can you believe it?!) I was immediately taken by the fearless way that New Yorkers dress and express themselves. I've mentioned th ...

A Touch Of Plaid
I feel like New York has rubbed off on me in so many little ways – I walk way faster than I ever have in my little legged life, I don't even remember what cooking is like, and I find myself shopping less because I just don't have as much room in ...

Winter Weekend Casual
This past weekend was beautiful. I almost forgot that it snowed last week when I came back into the city on Saturday afternoon. The snow had melted and you really only needed a coat and a long-sleeve shirt. Oh, what a joyful hiatus it was.

Drape Front Jacket
I have to admit, my winter rotation is getting a bit stale. Sweaters, jeans, boots, repeat. You probably know exactly what I'm talking about! Getting dressed up is trickier in the winter and let's be honest.. there's not a ton of motivation. Every ...

Blanket Scarf Season
I have a weird habit where when I check the weather, I always look at the 15 day forecast. I don't know what it is but it's like I have to know if the temperatures are going to rise or fall or if it's "bundle up for the next 15 and then some." Aft ...

How To Find The Perfect Flares
I've been on a pretty heavy skinny jean kick for ... oh, I'd say about 4-5 years now. By kick, I really mean that I've kicked everything else out and that's all that remains. (No but really, I cleaned out my closet this weekend and it's true–skinni ...

Nothing New
This holiday season I promised myself I’d try to spend less on buying new outfits and more on presents for people that I love, trips that I have coming up next year, and helping other people. I’ve challenged myself to come up with some new looks ...

Holiday Happiness
As much as I tried to get ahead of my holiday shopping this year, inevitably I always end up needing a gift or two when I head home. I picked up a few gifts from the Union Square holiday market this year and always love bringing something back to Tex ...

Slate Blue
There's something about December and this time of year that tends to bring out different color cravings for me. Something in the (well, not so wintery) air beckons cooler tones and subdued statements. While I've kept my recent outfits relatively simp ...

Uptown Girl
Confessions of being a New York transplant–there are still some songs that make me so happy to listen to when I walk around the city. One of those songs is Uptown Girl by Billy Joel.. it just puts a smile on my face. If you saw the movie Trainwr ...

From Fall To Festive
December. You're finally here! It doesn't really feel like it's you, but it sure does look like it's you. The halls are decked all over the city and we've officially begun my favorite month of the year! I love the holiday season and everything about ...

How I Like My Coffee
My pet peeve with myself in the coming months is that I tend to wear the same color combinations over and over again. I get sick of my closet (and myself for not diversifying) so quickly by wearing them all out. My other fall challenge this year was ...

Fall Uniform
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know leopard is a print that took a little bit of growing on me. I started small with the skinniest belt you’ve ever seen, but since have expanded into other pieces and most recently these cute litt ...

Stealing From The Boys
You know, I hate to admit it but sometimes the boys just have it right. There's something about a simple stripe that works on just about everyone. If you ride the subway to work in New York City you're bound to see many a suited man usually in some ...

In A Pinch
Thanksgiving is around the corner and with a lot of festivities here in the city (like a certain special someone's birthday, going away events, visitors in town, etc.) I've been running around like a mad woman trying to make sure I can do it all. ...

That Something Extra
Sometimes it's a necklace, sometimes it's a handbag, but in this case that little something extra is this pair of boots. Like every good pair of shoes, they have a great story. These are no different! One of my friends works for the Net-A-Porter g ...

Flirt In The Skirt
More often than I care to admit I find myself relating fashion to song lyrics or movie lines. As soon as this skirt arrived the movie that popped into my head was A League Of Their Own. If you've never seen it, save it in your iPhone notes and next t ...

Black Lace
When I really like something, I really like it. Lace just happens to be one of those things that I can't seem to get enough of. It could be a little black dress, a little navy dress, or something like this matching set for whatever reason I tend to ...

Turning Over A New Leaf
Growing up, I never really needed a ton of cold weather staples. You really just needed one coat, a few sweaters and a North Face jacket and you were good to go. After all, winter in Texas is really over in the blink of an eye – and summer clothes ...

Olive And Navy
I've been playing it safer with styling lately and have been trying to find other ways to branch out – mostly through new color combinations. Our tiny apartment and the re-emergence of my winter coats and sweaters means there's less room than ever ...

Cozy Fall Additions: Capes
I have to admit - I've been on the cape train for a long time now. Give me any easy solution that will keep me warm and be stylish and I'm sold! I've mentioned this recently but this year I'm all about finding simple solutions to my fall style. I ...

Back To The Basics
Ahhh. It's really, actually here! This weekend in New York truly felt like fall and I have to say, it was pretty amazing. The windows were open, you just needed a light sweater, and the candles are coming back out on Sunday nights. I've been a lit ...

People StyleWatch: Finding Your Perfect Denim
I can't even tell you how excited I am for today! The October issue of People StyleWatch is out and yours truly is a part of a great piece on how to find denim for your body type. Jeans are my jam and I've found over the years that they're an inc ...

Emerald City
It seems like mother nature has decided that it's not quite Fall yet here in New York – and I'm not mad about it. Last week we had some extremely hot and humid days for the fact that it's mid-September and so I have been keeping my summer clothes o ...

Pretty In Pink
If you want to talk about stepping out of your comfort zone, let me be the first to tell you that it's not easy. I used to hate change, bright pink and busy crowded places... but now here I am in a bright pink skirt living in New York City. It's funn ...

Wardrobe Staples
How many times have you woken up, walked into (or just stared straight at in my case) your closet and thought… I have absolutely nothing to wear. Hand raised x 1000! If writers block is real and artists need muses, I think we all need something for ...

Shearling Jacket
People ask me all of the time how I survive the winters – 3 years in Chicago and now my first winter in New York.  The answer is actually pretty simple... I've become a coat & jacket hoarder. Just kidding! Well, maybe a little bit. It's f ...

Flirty Skirt
About this time of year I start dreaming of warmer temperatures as I have to start planning for fun events like showers, weddings, vacations and all things that don't involve the cold and snow. It's so tempting to want to pull out my favorite s ...

Gray Turtleneck Jumper
Maybe it's the 5+ years I've spent living in cold climates now, but I think I'm getting a little better at this whole "getting dressed in the winter" thing. I've learned that having a few good staples will make this daunting task so much easier wh ...

Weekend Attire
Saturdays have become pretty special to me lately and they're by far the best day of the week in my book. The thing about New York City is that it makes it really hard for you to be basic. Sure, there are days when I leave for work and think wow.. ...
