Divine Secrets of the Blogger Sisterhood

The blogging community is a sisterhood. I know that sounds so cliche – but it really is true. The girls I’ve met (both in person and over the internet) are so supportive, and have become…

SoHo Chic

Dang it, if I knew we were going to SoHo I would have dressed for SoHo. Yes – this is a real quote heard on the streets of New York. No – I did not say it. Yes – I…

Wanderlust + Wednesday Link Up

With Memorial Day right around the corner, it’s officially starting to feel like summer in the city. And for most New Yorkers, summer in the city comes with a side of wanderlust. Why stick around this hot…

After the Party Is the After Party

It’s wedding season, people. The four months of every young adult’s year that are spent jet-setting around the country to celebrate their friends tying the knot. If I had a dollar for every person that…

Transitioning Your Wardrobe to Spring

The transition to spring can be a funny time in your wardrobe. If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the entire winter hibernating in black and grey clothes, and then the minute the first flower blooms…

Take Your Warm-Weather Faves Out of Hibernation

There’s no place better than Manhattan in the spring. Not just because the weather turns and we get a perfect few weeks, but because everyone sheds their heavy coats and scarves and once again gets…

Turn Your Bedroom Into A Dressing Room

The best part about getting new clothes is shopping. Searching. Digging through rack after rack until you find the perfect item. It’s the chase really.  But what if you need something in a hurry? Or…

In My White Tee

White doesn’t have to be boring. It doesn’t have to play the supporting role in your outfit of the day. No one likes basic. I could borrow my boyfriend’s white undershirt if I wanted basic. You can have…

A New York Love Affair Turns 2!

Year 1 of this blogging journey was about searching. Looking for my voice. Trying to find what I had to say that was different from the thousands of other bloggers out there and putting it…

Little Red Riding in My Hood

Have you ever wanted something so bad, you’d go to the ends of the earth for it? Although maybe not the ends of the earth,  I have been all over Manhattan, which is the center of the…

Turning Over a New Leaf…

Every month I tell myself: “I’m turning over a new leaf. From now on I’m buying less quantity and more quality.” And then … because I live in New York and I walk by about 100 stores…

Stating the Obvious: Plaid for Fall is a Thing.

Fall weather must flick a switch inside me or something. When the temperature drops to roughly 50 degrees, I seem to turn off my “chic city girl mode” and turn on the “cozy Midwesterner mode”. Out with…

Re-framing the Fashion Conversation

Was anyone else teased relentlessly growing up? “Four eyes” and “geek” were just a few of the negative connotations thrown my way as a bright-eyed middle-schooler. Glasses were uncool. And if you wore them, so…

NYFW ~ Day Four Recap

By Day Four of Fashion Week, the honeymoon period had officially worn off. My feet — having been in heels more consecutive days than I could remember — felt like plump little sausages. My body —…

Rompin’

When it comes to new trends, I’m more of a “sit on the edge of the pool for a little bit, then dip my toe in, before … diving in head first” kinda fashionista. I wish I was…

Running Errands Meets ‘I Woke Up Like This’

There’s something about a fully stocked fruit bowl and a fresh bouquet of flowers that just makes me happy! The last few Saturdays, Peter and I have been on a “Farmers Market and Fresh Blooms”…
