Good morning! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I’m in the process of moving to a new apartment. A friend recently sent me an article that said moving is one of life’s most stressful events. And I have to admit […]

Bagels & Mimosas: A Last Minute Birthday Brunch

A few weeks ago it was my birthday. I’m usually the type of person that plans a party to celebrate weeks (sometimes months!) in advance. But this year there was just too much going on. Somehow the big day totally snuck up on me before […]

Fall Edit 2017: Best of Fashion, Beauty, Home & Travel

Hello, hello! I’ve been so distracted this past month, between launching a new e-commerce website and decorating (more on those topics later), I really haven’t gotten the chance to take advantage of the season. And it is my favorite season! So I’ve finally put together a little fall […]

Summer Brights and Sunshine

Summer Brights and Sunshine

Last weekend Scotty and I met my family in Bellport for a little city getaway. We planned on a day at the beach, an evening sail, dinner outside, and walks through town. Well, unfortunately it was cold and rainy for a lot of it. We […]

My Five Favorite Sea Salt Sprays

My Five Favorite Sea Salt Sprays

I cannot believe it’s already August! Why does summer fly by so quickly and winter seems to draaaaag on forever. I’ve really been letting my hair fly free this summer, hardly ever taking the time to style it. I’ve mostly been dousing it in sea […]

Summer Weekends in the City

Summer Weekends in the City

New York is such a funny place in the summer. Every weekend the city empties out as residents head for their preferred beach destinations: The Hamptons, The Shore, The Cape… to name a few. I’ve done my share of fleeing Manhattan’s heat this summer, but […]

My New Pleated Pants

My New Pleated Pants

My mom wore these pleated pants to a dinner the other night and got so many compliments, she called me up and told me to buy them immediately. One friend even asked her if they were Celine. It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but […]

I was walking through H&M last week and spotted this colorblock sweater in the corner. It’s not the usual fall color palette that I tend to gravitate towards at this time of year, but the oversized sleeves and turtleneck looked so cozy that I had to try it on. So happy I did because it’s turned into one of my go-to fall sweaters. It’s super warm and comfy, and has a slightly cropped body so that you’re not too overwhelmed by the giant sleeves and neck. I’ve actually come to love the brighter colorblocks, something a little different when the rest of the world is wearing dark tones. (They also have it in a pink colorway that’s really cute!)

Can you believe we’re a week away from Thanksgiving? I feel like this month has flown by! I’m so excited for the holiday though, it’s one of my favorite times of year. My sisters are coming to NYC for the week, and we have a bunch of fun plans on the agenda – I can’t wait!

Happy almost weekend, thanks for stopping by!!
