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. Of course my biggest concern? Wardrobe (did you think I was going to say something mature like “safety’?) 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 »

Plaid Pencil Skirt – Take Deux

As you may have noticed, I am a sucker for all things plaid at the moment, whether it be a masculine(ish) pant suit or this great faux wrap skirt, I just can’t get enough of this pattern! I loved dressing this skirt up in boss lady style in an earlier post (Take Un – see it here), but I also really like the edgy, tomboy vibe of this look. Read More »

A Parisienne in DC

 

Last summer I was interviewed by 40+ Style, a popular website and blog offering style inspiration and advice for – you guessed it – women over forty.  Although many of the questions were geared to that specific audience, I hope that my answers offer wider appeal. I thought I would share them with you here so that you might get to know me a little better. Enjoy!

Shine Bright Like a (Pink) Diamond

Street style, especially NY street style, is such a great source of inspiration! Take this look, for example. I was in SoHo the other day when I saw this incredibly chic (European, I assumed) woman wearing an oversized silver jacket. I never thought that I would find anything like it in the US, until I came across this very similar style at Nordstrom. Read More »

Denim I Tell ‘Ya?

If there is one thing I’ve learned on my frequent travels to New York City is that you have to be prepared for any eventuality. Cold weather, longer than expected walks, going from casual to formal situations without time for a major wardrobe change, etc. But isn’t that just like life? You’ve gotta’ be able to roll with the punches. Read More »

SoHo’s it goin’?

There is nothing I like better than an oversized sweater. I loved this one when I saw it on my favorite’s (Isabel Marant) runway, so I was really happy to find my size on sale. I have worn it with these black leather leggings on really cold days, but it works really well with a cropped jean on warmer days. I added a pop of red and a black and white bag to tie the look together. I was so lucky that the weather complied with my choice for this shoot! Read More »
