Off to the Races

The horse track: It’s an excuse to get dolled up, soak up some sun, sip on a few cocktails and dabble in a little harmless betting. As a competitive person who loves fashion and enjoying…

A Chicago Love Affair ~ Brittany Townsley

They call Chicago the “Second City” — behind my love, New York of course. But for one blogger, Chicago is second to none. And so continues my ‘Love Affair’ series. I thought this would be…

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

A place to see and be seen. A sea of beautiful people in beautiful clothes. The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic was really everything I imagined it would be. Last year I saw pictures of this event…

Dressing For All Your Early Summer Adventures

Memorial Day Weekend marks the official beginning of summer. The starting line of a marathon of barbecues and beach houses, picnics and pool parties. Months of being cooped up inside are easily forgotten, as the days grow longer…

Memorial Day Essentials

Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but before every trip I make a checklist. I write it out with a pen and paper down to the tiniest detail, and then check off everything as I pack it. This…

Flavor of the Month

Has this ever happened to you? You’re browsing the racks and a color just speaks to you. All of a sudden you wonder how you could possibly own so many clothes and not a single item in that beautiful…

Wantable Box ~ May

Delivery day! With summer fast approaching, Wantable filled my latest shipment with some bright accessories. To be quite honest, this wasn’t my FAVORITE box so far … but there were still at least three pieces I could get…

Spring in My Step

In New York, spring is the “one or the other” season. Bare arms, or bare legs. Never both. Shorts and a sweater, or pants and a tee? Short dress with long sleeves, or long dress with…

Marching to a Brooklyn Beat

If you’re going to go to Brooklyn, you’ve got to dress the part. For me, that means leaving behind my ultra-preppy daily uniform for a more casual, laid back look. Every twenty-something girl in New…

Luxury in Simplicity: It’s a Walk in the Park

Sometimes the simplest activities make the best memories. There are a thousand different restaurants we could have gone to for brunch yesterday, but Peter and I brown-bagged it. We packed a gourmet meal, picked up…

A Milwaukee Love Affair ~ Molly Rasmussen

New York stole my heart and probably definitely won’t give it back. But I’m not the only one with a love affair, and Manhattan isn’t the only eligible bachelor. There are so many cities out there…

My Easter Sunday Best

There’s your Sunday best, and then there’s your Easter Sunday best. I’ve always dressed up for church, but on Easter I wear the newest, brightest, and prettiest dress in my closet. Ever since I was…

Maxi Mentality

It’s easy to see a trend you like in the pages of InStyle or Pinterest and simply regurgitate it piece-for-piece as part of your own wardrobe. But how do you stand out? How do you…

Bluegrass & Bourbon

It’s true, you’re more likely to find me drinking vodka lemonades while watching golf, than sipping bourbon while watching horse racing … but what girl doesn’t love an excuse to get dolled up in her…

Wantable Box ~ April

Wantable delivery day is like Christmas morning. I hustled up the elevator and tore in to my goodie box the second I walked into the door. It’s so fun getting treats in the mail! For…

Style Me March ~ A Little Bit O Sparkle

So maybe I broke the rules a little bit with this ensemble. Yes, I wore white. White on white to be completely honest … in March. So SUE ME! I just had to. I’m getting…

Getting Lucky in Las Vegas

With winter overstaying its welcome in New York, my Las Vegas vacation came at the perfect time. A weekend full of poolside drinks, brightly colored outfits, and some much needed Vitamin D was just what…
