Wedding Guest Attire Breakdown: The Infamous Cocktail Party

Attire: Classic New York Thoughts: What does this even mean? Can I come wearing a nude dress a la Carrie Bradshaw circa 1997?! Outfit: In all honesty I think there was a word left off that invitation. So without disturbing the bride-to-be with a petty question like “oh hi you don’t have 30 million other things going on so can you tell me what the heck I should wear to your wedding?” – take it from a ...

Denim + Stripes

Nothing beats a warm weekend in September, where the crisp fall air hasn't yet rolled in and the patios are still bustling with folks. These are my favorite kind of days in NYC sometimes. You have to take it in while you can because as New Yorkers we know that it's only a matter of time before the cold winter air comes barreling into town. One of my favorite spots in the city as ...

Wedding Guest Attire Breakdown: Black tie optional  

Attire: A long dress Thoughts: Keep it simple and easy. Outfit: This was the ideal occasion to wear this Parker New York floral number. Long, breezy, ruffled perfection. Paired with these Lulu Frost drop stone earrings, easy layered bangles, my Karen Walker sunnies and this simply adorable Zac by Zac Posen mini clutch.

Wedding Guest Attire Breakdown: The Garden Cocktail

Wedding season for me is in full swing. With four weddings in six weeks it’s a busy one. What makes it even more crazed than usual? Each wedding has a very different attire than the other. Not that I’ve ever been a fan of wearing outfits more than once to a big event but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do sometimes. This is not one of those times. So I’m breaking down ...

Late Summer Picnic and the Perfect Pink Dress

Solid Saturday morning out east. As I browsed the racks I came across this Reformation Belize Dress in a perfectly girly blush pink. Along with about 10 other pieces I tried it on. Fit was spot on. The dress was made for me so out ...

Weekend Escape: Newport, RI

A few summers ago I found myself up in Newport, RI seeking an escape from the city. It was far more relaxed and laid back than expected, a welcome change without a doubt. I haven’t been back since so when I was scratching at the walls to get out of hot, steamy NYC a trip up to cooler Newport was just what I needed. A calm, relaxing escape. The stay was only three days but ...

The End of Summer Escape: Hamptons

For New Yorker’s heading to the Hamptons on the weekends is the equivalent to going to the lake for my Southern friends. It’s the easy escape out of the city, the closest body of water and the beach (but definitely not the nicest) and will inevitably end with a beautiful sunset closing out a wonderful weekend with friends. I’ve done Hampton’s guides before but as new places have opened, old ones closed and a few ...
