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…

Take Your Warm-Weather Faves Out of Hibernation

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…

I know this isn’t earth shattering news, but Saturdays and Sundays are my favorite days of the week. Yes there’s the fact that they’re the only two days where it is totally acceptable to stay inside all day…

Treat Yo Self

New York can be a grind. It’s a city full of dream chasers and overachievers. We pour ourselves into our jobs, working 10, 12, 14 hours days, and follow it up with long nights (obviously this…

Bling in the New Year

After spending the better part of a week lounging around in my Christmas pjs, I’m thrilled to get dolled up one last time in 2014. And although I rarely need an excuse to wear sparkles, sequins…
