One way to escape the January doldrums is to start shopping for Valentine’s Day. I’ve put together almost 60 gifts for women, men, teens, little kids, furry friends, and of course, yourself. One for them, two for me is my motto. Brighten up your wardrobe for February with this fuchsia double-breasted belted wool-blend felt coat. […]

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a dinner to celebrate the launch of the new Remy Renzullo x Carolina Irving & Daughters, Olympia and Ariadne Irving, collection launch on Moda Operandi. I haven’t seen Remy in person in years since he’s been spending more of his time in London working on Castle Howard. […]

I thought I would be a little more gung-ho to start this year but I forgot just how uninspiring January can be. It’s not an exciting new seasonal start like fall which has beautiful weather and all new fashions. It’s freezing cold and snowy in New York which makes everyone want to hunker down at […]

Pajama Party 2024

I’ve been hiding out in my pajamas this long holiday weekend after getting a peel from Oni Skincare on Friday. Now, we are expecting a big snowstorm and arctic temperatures so that’s another great reason to hunker down at home in your pajamas. I also love packing a chic pair of pajamas when I travel […]

The New Moon in Capricorn today is a great day to restart your new year and a perfect time for a little wardrobe refresh. Since I didn’t post my usual “what I bought” post for December and Paris, I thought I would combine some of the favorite things I bought at the end of last […]

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

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 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 […]

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 […]
