La Garçonne

I think even the girliest of girls can agree that sometimes, it would be nice to think like a guy when it comes to putting an outfit together. Like, “I think I’ll wear grey today.” And instead of worrying about whether their outfit “pops”, they just layer all the grey things they have in their closet, AND they get to wear comfortable shoes. This outfit is my ode to that kind of tomboy – I mean – garçonne – nonchalance. Read More »

Bundled Up In NYC

If you follow me on Instagram, you have often seen me joke about the fact that I am not a winter person. Like not even close. So you can imagine my dismay when my son and I learned that one of the worst winter storms in decades, the so called “bomb cyclone,” was set to hit NYC the day we were to arrive there.

In Residence at The Jefferson

My husband and I treated ourselves to a little staycation a couple of weeks ago at The Jefferson, a five star boutique hotel in the heart of Washington, D.C.

La Petite Robe Noire

As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I visited Paris with my husband recently. I usually do photo shoots when I am there, but have tended to avoid the big, iconic backgrounds like the Eiffel Tower or one of the many beautiful bridges in the city because that always seemed so cliché to me. This time I went full tourist/blogger to get those shots, and I could not be happier with the results. Read More »

The Marcel Sweater

I have been trying to simplify my wardrobe lately, buying only key pieces that I can style in various ways. This Marcel Sweater from the cult favorite French brand Sézane is the perfect example of a wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down, depending on my mood. To illustrate my point, I styled the same sweater in three totally different ways. Read More »

L’Auberge Provençale

A few weeks ago, my husband and I spent the most lovely two days at L’Auberge Provençale, an elegant French country Inn in the heart of Virginia Wine Country.  Given that I spent most of my vacations in Provence when I lived in Paris, I was intrigued when I received an invitation from the Inn keepers. Could this place really live up to my expectations?  Read More »
