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.

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…

outfit // stripes + faux fur









This time of year I always unearth my heavier outerwear pieces and one of the first to go into rotation is my faux fur vest. I’ve had this one from the LOFT since my San Francisco days if you can believe it. It is cozy and perfectly pairs over any number of Fall outfits. When I bought it they were just becoming a trend and now I feel like I need another because there are so many great styles out there from practically every retailer. I rounded up some of my favorites in the below pictures that each hyperlinked for easy shopping (at all different price points)!

Yesterday I landed to 19 degrees in Ohio and snow on the ground, brrr! But clearly I shot these photos in New York before temperatures dropped. This & Other Stories (read more about the store here) is fleece lined and so cozy and will be perfect to pair with tights when bare legs are no longer acceptable.

I hope you’re having a great week!
