Metallic Mood


Raise your hand if you like shiny things. Go on, don’t be shy. You know you want to. I’m raising mine too. I love a good metallic statement piece. They go with everything! Whether its jewelry, a handbag or metallic shoe you really can’t go wrong.  (more…)

A Love Letter to Summer


Dear Summer, I LOVE YOU.

I frolicked in the grass. I sipped on lots of rosé…and other delicious cocktails. I had good times with friends. I shared special moments with family. I almost drowned…sadly this is true. I made peace with exes. I celebrated love. I tried to find love. I started a new job. I ate delicious food. I laughed until I cried. I danced until my feet hurt. I lived and then lived some more. I’m so grateful to have experienced each and every moment. I would not have changed anything about it.

Since Dirty Dancing is my number one all time favorite movie, it must be said that I truly had the time of my life and I owe it all to you, Summer. Can’t wait see you again in 2018.

September


September is such a weird month. It’s that odd not quite summer not quite fall in between moment. You never know if you should fast forward into fall fashion or continue to embrace the current season until it’s bittersweet end. To make it even more difficult, it almost never feels like summer in New York after Labor Day even though the official end isn’t until late September. To that end, I love love love mixing clothes together from each season. This is seriously the only time that I can seamlessly (sans tights) mix boots and shorts, sweaters and shorts…really anything and shorts. Clearly I love shorts!


Two staples that I always have ready are this lightweight military jacket and my trusty Chelsea boots. I bought the jacket a few years ago while shopping with my girls at the cutest boutique in San Francisco. It’s so soft and easily a perfect topper for chilly days. My Chelsea boots make it so easy to traipse around the city, I really don’t know how I functioned before I got them. They’re my rain boots, my walk about town boots, my “my feet hurt, where are my flats”?” boots, my everything boots.


Versatility is exactly what you need this time of year and you can never go wrong with these wear with everything staples. Even though these are not new to my closet, they do get restocked each year because they’re so popular. I guess I’m not the only one who loves the classics.
