It’s a little warmer in NYC right now but this is known as “Fake First Spring” but the wintery weather will be back this week so I’m starting to think about fashions that can work with fluctuating temperatures. Luckily, NET-A-PORTER has many new season separates that are perfect for this transitional season. As a jumping […]

The days are getting shorter and the light is getting lower which means summer is almost over. While I might be shifting to wearing more neutrals instead of bright colors, I don’t plan to give up wearing white just yet.

The reason I get so excited about fall is because it’s New York’s best season. It can still be quite hot into October though so I’ve put together an array of pieces that can be mixed and matched when it’s still warm and then can easily transition to cooler temperatures. If you aren’t into skirts, […]

I delayed my October Inspiration post this year because it has still felt a lot like summer lately. I think next week should feel more like October so hopefully this will put you in the mood for pumpkin patches and tweed jackets. Photo by me .

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Welcome to the first day of Fall! Spring may last longer in New York but autumn is the city’s best season. Of course, it stays warm through October and we don’t see peak foliage until late October but that doesn’t mean it’s still not exciting. Here are some fall inspired images and fashions to get […]

A Change of Direction

07 . 29 . 20

It’s always around the end of July that I start to get sick of my colorful summer clothes and begin to reach for neutrals. It’s also around this time that I try to take advantage of the final days of sale season. There are still a a lot of good pieces left this year. I’ve […]

It’s been cool enough in New York that I’ve started wearing flats and I’ve seen many editors already wearing boots during fashion week. That might be jumping the gun a little but it is a good time to think about your fall footwear. We all know that that by the time you really need a […]

Every year, I eagerly await the first pre-fall collection from Sézane and it’s finally launched today. I don’t think the styling and photos are as beautiful or inspiring as they were last year but the collection is still filled with wonderful pieces to add to your autumn wardrobe. Happy September! XOXO, HC Johnson Coat and […]

The days are getting shorter and the light is getting lower. That means I’m ready to shift my colorful summer wardrobe into neutral. That means an excuse for a color compilation post. Enjoy.

While I’ve been adding navy and lavender to my spring wardrobe, I also love wearing neutrals. One of my favorite go to outfits is a trench or blazer paired with an ivory blouse, jeans, and flats. I actually wore this exact outfit on Friday when we had a brief warm up to 70 degrees. If […]

The French had la rentrée yesterday and now we have our own today as everyone returns to work and school. I am always excited for fall in New York since it starts off with a bang with fashion week shows and parties. There are also a lot of great art exhibitions coming up like Delacroix […]
