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 […]

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 […]

I usually post what’s new and noteworthy on Fridays but seeing as how it’s 9,000 degrees everywhere, I thought you might like some ideas of things to read and watch while you are at home sitting in front of the air conditioner. The team behind Baron’s Cove, my favorite hotel in Sag Harbor, have just […]

My friends David Lawrence and Carlos Garciavelez of Carlos David have done it again. Their breathtaking project in Barcelona has been featured on ArchitecturalDigest.com this week with photos by Douglas Friedman. I had the pleasure of seeing behind the scenes photos and progress updates on this remarkable home and I’m so proud to see the […]

If you are lucky enough to get invited to someone’s home or boat this summer, you definitely want to take a hostess gift so you get invited again next year. As I’ve mentioned before, I love giving and ephemeral gift like food or wine with something that will they will have once the others have […]

Nine Orchard

06 . 22 . 22

I love living uptown but we are seriously lacking in the hotel department. That’s why I’m very jealous of the new hotel, Nine Orchard, that just opened downtown. DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners has transformed a 12-story Lower East Side Beaux-Arts landmark building into an elegant hotel and culinary destination. Originally built in 1912, the […]

I can’t believe Fourth of July is in less than two weeks. Time flies when you’re having fun! It feels like everyone is in Europe right now but in case you plan to celebrate Independence Day in the USA, I’ve put together almost 50 red, white, and blue options for the entire family. his 4th of […]

I know I have slacked off on the blog since before I went to Paris. During the pandemic, it was hard to post because of brain fog but I’m not sure why I can’t get focused lately even though I have so much to post. I’m in Sag Harbor this week so there will be […]

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Platinum Jubilee celebrations have been taking place across London to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. It’s been fun to watch the coverage on tv and from my friends on Instagram. I might be going to London in early July so I’ve been taking lots […]

Hope you are enjoying the long holiday weekend. I thought I would put together a post of some of my favorite things on sale right now and remind you that many of the sales end on Monday. I loved this Voluminous Poplin Dress so much that I bought all three colors: stripes, white, and navy. […]

While Memorial Day is a time we should be remembering and honoring people who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, it also signifies the unofficial start of summer in the US. More people than ever will be traveling this year to celebrate the long weekend since most couldn’t go anywhere last two […]

Guess who’s back? Thank you for being so understanding of my pause in posts. In the 15 years of blogging, I’ve never taken such a long break but I was still posting almost 100 Instagram Stories each day of my month in Paris so I didn’t take a complete break and I hope that you […]

Chic in Paris

04 . 25 . 22

I haven’t died. I’ve just died and gone to Paris. Sorry for the lack of posts. Three weeks is the longest I’ve ever gone without blogging in the 16 years of Habitually Chic but hopefully you will forgive me since I have been celebrating my birthday in Paris with friends. I had grand plans to […]

I’ve written about many Paris pied-a-terre apartments so it will probably be a little confusing that I’m now writing about a company renting apartments in Paris under the moniker, Pied A Terre. There was a hole in the Paris apartment rental market between traditional Haussmann style places and hot mess expresses on Airbnb that Pied […]

Did you watch the film Windfall that was just released on Netflix? I did and immediately fell in love with the house where it was filmed in Ojai, California. The film is about a man who breaks into a tech billionaire’s empty vacation home only to have things go sideways when the arrogant mogul and […]

Spring has finally arrived but that means beautiful sunny weather mixed with cold and rainy days. We’ve got you covered if you want to be out and about or hunkered down at home with something to watch or read this weekend. Filmmaker Sofia Coppola doesn’t seem to grant many interviews so I was excited to […]
