I waited all summer for September to arrive and I can’t believe it’s already over. Time flies when you are having fun! New York is back and even better than our pre-pandemic days. There are new restaurant and store openings, premiers and parties happening all over town. There are also so many television shows filming […]

Autumn officially began yesterday evening and the temperature in New York this morning is 51 degrees so fall is really here. I’m excited to wear all the new sweaters I bought so far this season but I definitely need to turn over my closet this weekend. If you need any inspiration to get you into […]

Sorry for the radio silence on the blog. It’s been a busy week. I’ve been working on my annual What I Bought for Fall post but decided to add How I Plan to Wear Everything since you all seem to prefer when I post full outfits. It’s still a bit warm in New York right […]

I featured my friend Heidi Wynne’s luxurious cashmere wraps years ago in my post What Should I Pack for Paris. Her cashmere scarves are still the perfect travel companion, and she has since expanded her collection to include fisherman knit sweaters from Ireland and fair isle knits from one of the oldest mills in Scotland.

I’ve always loved the French phrase la rentrée which means the reentry. It encompasses back to school and back to work as everyone returns from their August holidays and tries to get back on track. They’ve already come back but as Americans go back to school and work after this long Labor Day weekend, it’s time to […]

My friend Ana Mari Ortega mentioned that she was looking for a new tote bag so I told her that I would put some options together in a post. An Instagram follower also asked for my opinion about buying a Goyard tote. If you have one, by all means, keep using it but I don’t […]

The days are getting shorter and the light is getting lower which means summer is almost over. While I might be shifting to wearing neutrals instead of bright colors now, I don’t plan to give up wearing white just yet. It also means a good excuse for a color compilation post. Enjoy.

One of the best things about fall besides crisp weather, changing leaves, and cashmere sweaters are the great interior design stories online and in magazines. I haven’t been posting that much design this summer because there wasn’t much of anything to post except for some real estate listings. So, I was very excited to see […]

I asked my Instagram followers this week what things they needed for fall and I’ve tried to incorporate some of their answers into this second fall transitional outfit post. There are options for how to dress for going back to the office, how to dress for September when it’s still very warm, and how to […]

I took all the photos above when I was in Paris for a month this spring. Residents and tourists of all ages wear sneakers for traversing the cobblestones and running around the city. By popular demand, I’ve put together 24 pairs of sneakers and have tried to choose options in many different price points so […]

The rumors that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are getting married at his property on Hampton Island, Georgia appear to be true. Two people close to Jen posted photos of themselves on the property that have since been deleted. Too late. I already saw them so I thought this would be a good time to […]

Even though we just got out of a heat wave, I’ve already been shopping for fall. I always joke that if you’re not sweating when you’re buying a coat, you’re doing it wrong because by the time you actually need one, they will be sold out. I’ve put together a few transitional outfits for fall […]

If you missed the classic French film La Piscine at the Film Forum last summer, you still have a few chances to see it on the big screen at Metrograph this month. I think the reason that the restored film from 1969 ended up running for 18 weeks at Film Forum after only being scheduled […]

I’ve posted the directions on how to buy my Paris Guide in Instagram stories and in one of my Bon Weekend posts but it seems to be getting lost. Since people are always messaging me and asking how to buy it, I thought I should create a dedicated blog post so it’s easier to locate. […]

My dear friend Andrew Brown, and interior designer based in Birmingham, Alabama, celebrated his birthday in Zanzibar this year. I was so inspired by his trip that I decided to create outfits based on the colors of his photos. I started with the burnt orange terracotta tiles as inspiration from the first photo take in […]

Just in case you haven’t been following my Instagram stories, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been in Paris with four of their children on a family holiday. It’s also a bit of a honeymoon since they just tied the knot in Las Vegas and a birthday trip to celebrate Jennifer’s 53rd birthday on Monday. […]
