Winter Style | Black on Black

January 5, 2017

I purchased this jacket when I was (pregnant) in Paris in 2015, but don't think I've ever worn it on the blog. I remember trying it on in Bon Marche and both Wendy and Anh agreeing that "I need it." After I came home, my belly got bigger and bigger and I just tucked it away in my closet, resorting to cozier wrap coats.


Starting off 2017

January 3, 2017

I took most of last week off from posting, wanting to take some time off to spend it with my family. It was our first holiday as a family of three and even though Nate doesn't understand anything just yet, the holidays have never been so special. As always, I felt guilty for not being as active on the blog and on social media, but I had Keith remind me that it was okay to take a few days off.

One of my goals going into 2017 is to be more present. I've said it before, but nothing makes time go quicker than watching your baby grow up. We all kind of stand still in time (or so it seems), but watching a little person grow up at some a rapid pace is quite the reminder to live more in the moment. It's amazing how much more I see or get done when I put my phone away for a bit.


Wine Velvet

December 30, 2016

What better way to celebrate the upcoming New Year than in a luxe, wine velvet blazer? I got this piece from Bergdorf Goodman several days ago and wore it with denim, as shown above and on Saturday night, I'm planning to wear it over a LBD and a berry lip.


Upper East Side

December 23, 2016

This outfit was mostly made up of pieces I've had in my closet for over a year. For some, that might not be too impressive, but I've been trying not to buy unnecessary pieces or any "dupes" of what I already have. The other day, I walked into Club Monaco and saw a gorgeous grey coat. I picked it up, tried it and thought to myself "oh! this is a must." As I was waiting on line to pay, I thought to myself "what the hell am I doing? I have an almost similar one home..." I walked out of the store, came home and took this coat out of my closet as a reminder to wear it.


Holiday Edge

December 21, 2016

I've aways loved playing with textures and as soon as I tried on this stunning pleated number from Parker, I knew I wanted to pair it with a leather jacket. The juxtaposition between the leather mixed with the gold pleats, keeps the look holiday ready, but slightly toned down.


Motherhood: A Wonderful Idea

December 19, 2016

Every Tuesday, I get together with a couple of girlfriends, all of us newish moms to boys. We'll bring our little ones and meet at a coffee shop, a restaurant or at one of our homes. I've talked about the importance of meeting other moms and whenever we get together, I walk away with a bit more motherhood knowledge.
