Over the Moon for Over the Knee

Personal style is a way to make a statement without saying a single word. And believe me, I’m all about finding your sartorial voice and expressing that individuality. I try to draw inspiration from various…

One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Peter asked me a really great question the other day: If you had to shop one brand for the rest of your life (within budget), what would it be? In other words, which brand perfectly captures your…

If The Shoe Fits

I had a little Cinderella moment in Kate Spade. Let me tell you my fairy tale story… A few weeks ago I was prepping for my Caravelle New York instagram takeover, which consisted of Peter and…

Life Lately

Over the weekend we “fell back” with our clocks, reminding us that summer is definitely over, fall is slipping away, and winter is right around a very cold and windy corner. I woke up yesterday…

Shifting Gears

I’m back! Did you miss me? I missed you! Sorry for being extremely M.I.A. on here lately (but thanks for following along on insta in the meantime!). When you work a 9-5 (which in my case is…

NYFW ~ Day Four Look

Black, black, black and more black … the signature color of fashion weeks everywhere. We wear black on black all the time, and it is consistently associated with high fashion. But what about its counterpart?…

NYFW ~ Day Three Look

September New York Fashion Week is the hardest week of the year to dress for. Forget about all the pressure to strut your stuff in a killer look each day. I’m talking more about the…

NYFW ~ Day Three Recap

After taking a day off from NYFW on Friday (I know, day two and I’m already a fashion week drop out…), I was back at it by the weekend. With a little time to kill before my afternoon…

NYFW ~ Day One Look

Fact: I fancy myself as an outfit planner. Not quite “lay your outfits out the night before” level, but I’m guilty of mentally styling my looks ahead of time. Prepping for fashion week was no different. I did…

NYFW ~ Pre + Day One Recap

I can’t believe it’s been one year since my very first fashion show. When I received my first invitation last year, I had NO idea what to expect. What do I wear? Who will I see?…

Tips for Transitioning to Fall

September is such an tricky time of the year. Post-Labor Day, my mind turns to full-on fall mode, and yet the weather is still screaming summer. By now, I’ve pretty much worn my warm weather…

Love Affair Links ~ Labor Day Sale Rundown

There are only a few things that help soften the blow of summer ending: (1) the prospect of styling all my favorite fall layers, and (2) the killer sales that mark the end of one season…

Wine Not?

Burgundy, merlot, and bordeaux – they’re not just for drinking anymore, ladies! I couldn’t be more excited to re-introduce this oxblood hue to my wardrobe for fall. If you hadn’t noticed, its everywhere lately, and will be a…

Steering Clear of Fashion Autopilot

It’s so easy to fall into fashion lock step — “I bought this _____ to specifically go with my _____”. And every time you wear that item, you wear that outfit – same top, same pants,…

The Cure for Wardrobe Paralysis

The tail end of summer might be the toughest time for wardrobes everywhere. By now, you’ve worn your summer clothes to death, so I guarantee you’re staring into your closet with severe wardrobe paralysis — the…

Buy Now, Decide Later

Last week I shared one of my weaknesses as a fashion-loving New Yorker … buying clothes for no reason (read my confession here!).  A close cousin of that problem, is my habit of buying things “so I can take…

Toga Trip 2.0 – A Year’s Worth of Growth

Have you ever been working toward something and felt like you hit a rut? Whether it be a career milestone, a fitness goal, or if you’re a fellow blogger maybe even a readership target, I’m sure we can…

Celebrating the No-Reason Occasion

Have you ever bought something off a vision? For a party you thought it would be fun to throw, or a vacation you dreamed about taking? Well I have. Quite a few times actually… Buying things…

Summer Layers

Getting dressed in summer can be kind of boring. Most of the time it’s too hot to wear ONE layer, let alone multiple layers. And for me, most of the fun comes from mixing pieces and…

Navigating Nauticals

Not that I ever need a reason to rock some nautical stripes, but hanging out by the water on America’s birthday is as good an excuse as ever! Nautical style has been a part of our…
