I took some time off last week for a quick trip to Boston but now that I’m back, I need to get started on all my apartment organizing and decluttering projects. The big issue most people tackle in the new year is the dreaded closet clean out. I usually post a closet inspiration post each […]

One thing I wish I had asked for as a Christmas present is a stay at the Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay. The country estate hotel outside Paris has been completely renovated and updated by the French hospitality group, Paris Society. The location was originally a 12th-century Cistercian abbey and later a weekend estate of […]

I still can’t believe that 2024 is here. It feels like just yesterday when we were staying home in 2020. Time flies when you may or may not be having fun. But I love fresh starts and new beginnings. I love making lists and cracking open a fresh Smythson agenda just waiting to be filled […]

Merry Christmas 2023

12 . 25 . 23

After taking off a busy pre-holiday week, I’m back to wish you a very Merry Christmas. I joked with a friend recently that I thrive when everyone else is away since it gives me some quiet time to do things without distraction so expect some blog posts between now and the year. That is my […]

If you’re behind on your holiday shopping, Saks has you covered with some great last minute gifts for yourself and others. I’ve picked out some of my favorites to help get you started. Actor Glen Powell wore a suede jacket to an interview this week. If your significant other wishes he was a leading man, […]

Whether you want to stay home on New Year’s to escape the madness or need a mental health day this month, Net-a-Porter has you covered with chic pieces for lounging inside that can also be worn outside. They also have beautiful home decor items to create a sanctuary or even a spa day at home. […]

You probably already have a black dress to wear for the holidays but so does every other woman. That’s why I am highlighting some other chic options from MATCHES with an emphasis on green. MATCHES has extensive offerings for event dressing no matter where you are celebrating. The first outfit is inspired by the newly […]

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that another thing I started to notice during my two weeks in Paris were brightly colored winter accessories. It was interesting to see since we always think of the French as wearing mostly neutrals but these bright pops of color add an uplifting mood booster […]

There is nothing I love more than seeing what Parisians are wearing every day. During my two weeks in Paris, one thing started to stand out from day one, shearling coats. They seemed to be even more popular with men than women but by the end of my trip, they seemed to be neck and […]

For Small Business Saturday, I’m featuring my friend Heidi Wynne’s timeless collection. Her cashmere wraps and fisherman knits make such thoughtful gifts for anyone who enjoys classic style and quality. Her sweaters are made in Ireland except for her Fair Isle styles which are made in one of the oldest mills in Scotland. Heidi is […]

I’m headed to Paris next week for Thanksgiving, as are many Americans, so I thought a post on what I’m packing would be in order. But if you’re not going to Paris, you don’t need to check out and stop reading. I will also wear all of these outfits in NYC and they also work […]

The time change comes at the beginning of every November and yet I still struggle with it every year. As soon as it gets dark at 5:00pm, I find it so hard to work and be productive since it feels like 8:00pm. I also have a trip to Paris coming up so there is the […]

Thank you for all the lovely messages about my first holiday gift guide this season. I’m back with even more chic and fun presents for the entire family. Happy Shopping! I think these Blue Moiré Mary Jane Flats would be a perfect early present for a tween to wear to holiday parties. Mario Buatta was the Prince […]

If you’ve walked down Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris in the past few years, you might have noticed a renovation project happening by Chopard. It was actually for their newly polished gem, 1 Place Vendôme, a five-star hotel located in an 18th-century six-story mansion that was originally designed for Louis XIV’s secretary Pierre Perrin. Paris-based architecture […]

The temperature has finally turned cold this week in New York which means I’m swathed from head to toe in grey cashmere and wool. Grey is always my go to color for late fall and winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black. It also pairs well […]

I’m answering more of your questions on what to wear in NYC, Paris, and a weekend away with Net-a-Porter today. I love ordering from Net-a-Porter because they have so many options and their fast delivery. This is especially important when you book a last minute getaway. I’ve been wearing a lot of black and navy […]

Sometimes I forget that interior designer Remy Renzullo is so young since his style is so evolved. His apartments look as they belong to collector who’s lived in them for decades which is no doubt why is was tapped to refresh and redesign rooms at Castle Howard. It’s the perfect project for his sensibilities and […]

The weather has been so up and down lately that it makes it hard to figure out what to wear. I love the idea of mix and match pieces that can work for different temperatures and MATCHES has so many great options. I put together three outfits that can work anywhere but that I would […]

Yes, I am posting my first holiday gift guide for 2023 when it’s unseasonably warm and before Halloween has even arrived but the early bird gets the worm as they say. I slacked off my on gift guides last year because of my two week trip to Paris so I wanted to get a head […]
