outfit // cashmere and floral









Ever since partnering with Ted Baker on this program, I have been so tuned into their collection. The pieces are so up my alley with their feminine prints, beautiful detailing like jeweled collars and structured dresses that are easy to throw on and get out the door.

I have been wearing this sweater almost every other day (recently seen here). It was a perfect investment piece and I am now considering getting it in the myriad of other colors in which it is available.

And this bag? I get so many compliments on it that when I reveal it is from Forever21 people are rather shocked. The quality is surprisingly good and they have so many good other bags there currently.

I hope you had a good weekend – I admittedly had a bit too much alcohol fun on Saturday night and therefore spent Sunday horizontal in bed watching a good ol’ SVU marathon (does anyone else have this addiction when they are hungover? Those USA marathons are literally everything). Here’s to a short week ahead that thankfully involves family, good food and pie.

Outfit: Sweater // Pants (love this similar pair)// Heels (on sale & also love these) // Forever 21 Bag // Karen Walker sunglasses // Watch // Bracelets

Seriously Distracted




The other week I had the pleasure of attending the launch party for POPSUGAR’s new scripted series, Seriously Distracted. The party was presented by fruitwater and themed around stealing a moment: a sliver of time you find and take for yourself during your busy, on-the-go day. I stole a moment at the party snapping photos like this one. fruitwater is a sparkling beverage that embraces that stolen moment mantra and I got to sip on fruitwater cocktails while at the event. The zero-calorie drink is light, bubbly and comes in delicious flavors like watermelon punch and orange mango. The perfect afternoon pick me up.

For me my stolen moment is my time walking to work in the morning. I love how quiet and peaceful New York is downtown before 9AM and my habitual routine of stopping at a favorite artisanal cafe is the perfect way start to my day. By the time I reach my desk 30 minutes later I am ready to seize the day.

You can tune into Seriously Distracted, a workplace comedy, on Tuesdays on POPSUGAR.com (a perfect opportunity to steal a moment for yourself with enjoyable programming- my favorite episode is here!)And better yet? fruitwater is giving one lucky fan the chance to win $1,000!

w&w weekly roundup


I am so glad it is Friday! I need tonight to regroup and get myself together after a hectic week. I am “hosting” Thanksgiving meaning my two brothers at my apartment next week and I couldn’t be more excited but I also have all of the anxiety.

Enjoy the weekend & this week’s roundup!

In case you missed it…
