Haute Date

I love wearing classic pieces, like a double-breasted black blazer and jeans, in unexpected ways. Anyone can throw a white button down or silk blouse with that and call it a day, but I thought it would be fun to throw some of my favorite athleisure pieces into the mix instead. Read More »

A Peak at Preakness

Last week, my husband and I attended the Preakness Stakes as guests of the Stronach Group, the owners of the Pimlico race course. I have always enjoyed watching horse races on television (especially in 2015 when American Pharoah won the triple crown at the Belmont Stakes), but have never actually attended one in real life, so this was a big treat. I have to admit that I was just as excited to see the fashion, and of course, the hats that guests would be wearing, as the horses (because let’s be honest, millinery opportunities are few and far between these days unless you’re a member of the Royal Family) .  Read More »

A Taste of Paris

As you can imagine, there are beaucoup de good restaurants in Paris. When I visit with my husband, we tend to go to a handful of favorites, but sometimes we discover a place or two that we haven’t tried before.  We stay in a darling apartment in the Marais, which is on the right bank and in the middle of Paris. Most of our usual spots are a short, scenic walk or cab ride away.  Here is a non-exhaustive list of those places. Read More »

SoHo-liday in New York City

It’s no secret that I love New York (it’s the closest thing to Paris, after all), especially during the holidays. This year I was lucky to get there a couple of times during the month of December for a few days each trip, which is just the right amount of time to savor it all without getting overwhelmed (or going broke).  Here’s a little recap of the stops during what to me were two perfect NYC getaways.

London Select

I recently spent a week visiting my son in London, which between you and me, was not nearly enough time to get to everything on my to-do list. I did make sure to at least walk past most of the iconic spots like Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, the British Museum, and the London Eye, for example, but I had to be very selective when it came to the places that I actually visited.  The same went for restaurants…who knew London was such a foodie town? Luckily, my son will be there for a while, so that I’ll hit any spots that I missed on the next trip.  Here are the highlights of what I did manage to do. Read More »

Eats Hampton

There is nothing quite like summer in the Hamptons. Great beaches, fantastic weather, outstanding people watching ops, and truly amazing food. Here is my list of tried and true dining picks, from the most casual, family friendly options to those worthy of a romantic evening en tête à tête. Read More »

Le Paris Packing List – Summer Edition

I don’t know about you, but to me the most stressful part of traveling is editing my packing list. For my last trip to Paris, I was determined to be as minimal as possible (never mind the THREE jackets I brought because, you know: PARIS), and to fit everything into my carry-on bag. I kept my eye on the weather forecast (which was all over the place) and tried to choose pieces that I could mix and match and easily convert from casual to dressier looks. I knew I would be spending most of my time walking around the city, so comfort was essential, but not at the expense of style, bien sûr. Here’s what I ended up taking. Read More »
