As I get ready for my upcoming trip to Paris, I want to pack comfortable clothes that do double duty and I’ve found the best pieces at Talbots. This grey cashmere turtleneck can be worn with these knit wide leg trousers in addition to jeans and skirts. These pants are so comfortable I could even […]

I know we still have to get through Halloween but it’s also time to start thinking about your holiday shopping. A lot of popular presents sell out early every year so I always try to post them first so you don’t miss out. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t like Ina Garten. I’m […]

It’s funny, How to Spend It, now HTSI, put Fair Isle sweaters on the cover of their magazine last year right before I posted about Fair Isle sweaters and they’ve done it again this year. It must be kismet. It was cold enough to wear one today so it feels like the perfect time to […]

I’ve always had a soft spot for Talbots. I still remember a grey wool turtleneck dress I wore for years until it finally had to be retired. Talbots to me has always been a place where I could find pieces to wear to work and on the weekends. I’ve picked out an outfit you can […]

I’ve had a lot of questions about what I plan to pack for my Thanksgiving trip to Paris. Even though I don’t leave for five weeks, I’ve been trying to get my wardrobe in order so I’m not racing around at the last minute. I’m very glad I started early too because the tailor I […]

I had a moment in late summer when I decided to replace a lot of the makeup I use. After two years of not going many places and not wearing a lot of makeup, I felt like it was time for a fresh start. Of course, you need a good base for makeup and I […]

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 […]

Whether you’re still on vacation or are at home because the kids are already back in school, there are some great sales happening this Labor Day weekend that you will definitely want to check out.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ben and Jen Take Paris

07 . 27 . 22

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. […]

In case you have been living under a rock, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are on their honeymoon in Paris along with their three daughters. I loved the floral linen dress that Jennifer wore to lunch today and some careful sleuthing discovered that it is by Reformation and only costs $248. I think it’s the […]
