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’ve posted the directions on how to buy my Paris Guide in Instagram stories and in one of my Bon Weekend posts but it seems to be getting lost. Since people are always messaging me and asking how to buy it, I thought I should create a dedicated blog post so it’s easier to locate. […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

The questions I’m asked most often on Instagram are “where should I go in New York” and “do you have a guide”. People haven’t been to the city in years due to the pandemic so they are planning trips and want to know where to stay and most often, where to eat. I don’t have […]

Cour des Vosges

02 . 13 . 22

While I was working on my posts about the film France and 24 Place des Vosges, I came across a very chic hotel. Cour des Vosges sits at 19 Place des Vosges and is the only hotel with views of the square from every room. The 17th-century historic site is known as the Hôtel de […]

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a love/hate relationship with the HBO show Succession. I don’t like the nouveau riche ridiculousness but I do love it when they shoot on location at a historic house. Episode Eight of Season Three which just aired on Sunday, was shot this past summer in Italy and might be […]

Thank you for all the great feedback on my first two holiday gift guides. I’m sorry some things have already sold out but we’ve put together more than 40 new gift suggestions that are currently in stock that I think your friends and family will love. I love to start each of my gift guides […]

When I visit Paris, I usually rent an apartment because I tend to stay at least 10 days. But I always keep a list of hotels for recommendations and will be adding the new Château Voltaire to the list when it opens in mid October. It is located in the 1st arrondissement which is quite […]

Summer Vacation

08 . 23 . 21

I’m not going on vacation until next week and it’s probably for the best. It will give Montauk and the Hamptons a little time to dry out after Tropical Storm Henri. Luckily, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been but did cause major flooding in some areas.I came across these photos of model […]

En Vacances 2020

08 . 17 . 21

I always find it amazing that the whole of Europe can be en vacances at the same exact time. I exaggerate of course, but only slightly. I haven’t done a color post in a while so this one is inspired by holidays spend on Greek isles and Italian beaches. @valerieleberichel @aerin Belted lace-trimmed cotton dress […]

I started following designer Camilla Guinness on Instagram earlier this year and was thinking about putting a post together. Today, her villa in Tuscany was featured on House & Garden so it felt like the perfect time. She shares the house named Arniano that she decorated with her daughters Amber and Claudia. Amber lives in […]

It feels like everyone is in Paris right now or just returned like my friend interior designer Andrew Brown. He and his partner Kip took a last minute trip to celebrate Andrew’s birthday. While they were in the City of Light, they took a day trip to Versailles where they quickly toured of the chateau […]

My Recent Etsy Finds

07 . 06 . 21

In the past year, I’ve found myself buying much more from Etsy. There are so many lovely and creative people running their entire companies on the platform and offering great prices. I’ve put together some of the things I’ve recently purchased and some things that have caught my eye. I’m not usually one for dupes […]
