My Wishlist




For as long as I can remember, I've always had a love affair with pastels.  Intially, I had thought of them as a perfect way to welcome springtime with all those pretty pinks, mint greens, soft yellows and of course, powder blues.  As time went on and my love affair matured, I came to realize how much I really loved those hues as a way to add warmth to winter.  

Maybe they are a reflection of snowscapes and winter sunsets or maybe they are just a realization of how much we all look forward to warmer days ahead, haha but either way, I love pastels in winter.  Today's look was created to celebrate the season we are in with a combination of soft shades and pretty neutrals that can't get enough of each other.  Hmmm, sounds like a love story to me, haha.

This color blue says winter to me but in a very cozy and comforting way.  I love making it the star of the show by pairing this coat with ivories, creams and blush tones alongside shades of sun-washed denim.  Then for some added interest and just enough contrast to make the look interesting, I love these animal print loafers.  

Gold and rose gold accessories in the form of this ring and this watch are my favorite ways to finish the look while keeping everything so beautifully balanced.  See, with looks like this, winter isn't so bad!

What do you all turn to to keep the winter blues at bay?  Hope you're having a beautiful week!

Ready for a revelation? It doesn't take a ton of clothes to create an endless array of looks you love and will want to wear everywhere.  Amazing right? Haha, I know!  But seriously, if you've been here for even a little while now then you know that I often feature an item or piece way more than once across multiple posts but style it in a different, fresh way each time.  And while to quote Isaac Mizrahi, who I happen to adore, "A girl needs a lot of clothes" she doesn't sometimes realize how far she can go with a few pieces carefully curated.  

So let's begin with the basics.  A great outwear piece can go in a number of directions depending on what and how it's paired.  This leather jacket is a classic and looks great with everything from a pleated maxi, t-shirt and sneakers to skinny jeans, Chuck's, an oversized sweater and a chunky scarf.  Accessories can always be a game-changer. They are the key to taking any look from playful and feminine to sassy and street-styled with very little effort. When taking things in the direction of today's look, I'm reaching for these Ray-Bans, this bag and a beanie.  This pom pom one is great for adding a bit of sweet to the mix if you want but I also love this one as it gives me model off-duty vibes.

Keeping the look and the pieces neutral gives off winter and cold weather feels.  But once the spring rolls around this jacket will make fast friends with white denim, sheer dresses, tanks and shorts.  The style possibilities are always endless if you just blur the lines a bit and be playful about how you see your favorite pieces taking on some new and unexpected personas and getting stylish together.  Remember there are no rules in fashion other than letting your personal style shine.  Have fun!

You know that feeling...the one you get when it's just so cold outside that all you want to do is cozy up?  January seems to be quite familiar with it too and that is why, come the weekend, I want nothing more than to reach for the warmiest, coziest pieces that will keep me feeling toasting while still looking cute.

It's no surprise that pinks, greys and ivories have made it to this party too, haha.  But they are some of the prettiest ways to achieve that goal.  This funnel neck bouclĂ© sweatshirt for example makes for the perfect layering piece whether you're going out or staying in.  It is super casual paired with your favorite yoga pants but just as easily tops off this ultra-comfortable pair of grey straight-leg denim.  These New Balance sneakers are topping my list right now.  The color, fit and style are all perfect in my eyes.  

When it comes to outerwear, I have to say that if it isn't warm, comfortable and flattering, I am not going to want to wear it.  Lucky for me, this jacket checks all the boxes.  I love that it is insulated yet lightweight and has a drawstring-waist feature that lets you tailor it to be exactly the way you like it.  A sweet pom pom beanie makes for its perfect counterpart of course.  

A fit tracker, set of hair ties, swipe of buttery balm and sunnies make for the best weekend accessories.  Casual and easy alongside warm and feeling fantastic are the keys to a wonderful weekend for me.  How about you all?  Any fun plans and ways to dress for them?  I'd love to know!

Enjoy!

Winter blahs? Never! Haha, well at least not when their are gorgeous neutrals like these waiting to be worn.  If you've followed along for a little bit of time then you likely already know that I love a great neutral.  Ivories, creams, cogbacs, greys and subtle shades of rose all qualify for this much adored category.  And what makes this love affair even better is the fact that you can wear it all year long no matter the season.  

During the cold winter months, I am always reaching for the coziest of items in these shades and colors.  To me they are just so truly romantic and angelic as they light you up everywhere you go.  My favorite way to wear them is by combining winter whites with icy greys and taupes and then added a bolder bit of interest with your accessories.  This sweater, these trousers and this fedora would be so chic paired with these ankle boots, these glasses and this bag.  Keep the vibe going on into spring by switching out these cozy fabrics for sheerer options warm days will be begging for.

To me this palette is the easiest way to dress for the day, no matter where it may be taking you and the look is always timeless.  I have linked the pieces you see here down in the thumbnails below.  I hope you love hem as much as I do.  Have a beautiful Wednesday everyone and thanks for stopping by!

So, it's that time again...we just wrapped up holiday gifting and are enjoying all the great gifts we received.  But there is a bit of a craving for something we see while window shopping the web.  "Oh, that's so cute but do I really need it?" is a question I find myself asking this time of year.  Well, you all know my mantra when it comes to curating my closet and that is I have to be able to wear an item at least three ways before it earns a spot on the rack.  Today's post is a new take on that and highlights one piece (that can be worn in wayyyy more than three ways) and transcends the seasons of then and now.

The cardigan is the prizewinner that will be something I know I wear all winter long and the easy, simple fix I reach for as winter melts into spring.  Layering is the key to this trick and once you pick out the right pieces to do so you are set for almost any season wearing this one.

Right now, if you are living in a colder climate like ours here in the NYC area, then you know what I mean when I say layer.  Depending where you are going any given day, the temps in and out can fluctuate from cool to cold.  I always like to start out with a fine-gauge turtleneck and build the look from there.  Black denim plays so well all winter long and the neutral cardi loves it as well.  Scarves are a city girl's best friend and I love one in this color as it adds just a little bit of edge and interest to an otherwise neutral look.  Beanies, boots and a brushstroke of burgundy (love this bag!) pull the look together and leave room for the finishing touch of your favorite accessory.  Cardigans love long layering necklaces like this one.  Mee too.

Later, when the weather warms up but there is still a chill in the air at any given time of day, you will find me reaching for my white denim and pairing it with the classic warm-weather jean.  Toss on a little striped tee, a classic pair of flats, some great gold and tortoise shell accessories and a great leather bag and you are set for a day of fun with the girls.  Ahhh, it feels so good to know those days will come! 

One piece, two ways.  See how easy that was? Haha, I hope that helps make those January buying issues a bit easier and your closet a happy place to be!  What pieces are you all wanting right now that you can also wear into the spring?

Have a great day everyone and for all those getting a long weekend, enjoy!
