outfit // lace sleeves








In addition to the Tibi tank seen here that I scored on Gilt, I also got this blouse at the same time.  I love the lace sleeves and how it can be dressed up or down. One of my favorite designers season over season, Tibi has so many great tops right now so I pulled together a few of my favorites below (including a couple on sale currently).

How was your weekend? I ran a 10K (ouch!), got my new phone, celebrated a friend’s 30th birthday, indulged in brunch here and here and fit in some errands, shopping (I took advantage of Madewell’s sale of 30% off purchases of $200 or more!) & watching the Niners game with friends. I hope you had a great one!

Outfit: Tibi Chantilly Lace Silk Blouse, Zara skort (old but similar versions for under $100 here and here), Joie Roxie heels, Karen Walker Anywhere Sunglasses, Sophie Hulme Zip Top Bowling bag, CC Skye and J.Crew bracelets, Michael Kors watch, BaubleBar stacked rings

outfit // kaleidoscope







Ever since Tibi released this Rococo print I loved it for its kaleidoscope like effect. When the silk tank (I swear by their silk tanks) hit Gilt, I snatched it up as soon as I saw it. Shooting this outfit on Park Avenue was such a fun experience as I A) rarely head to midtown and B) I was headed to Ted Baker to shop the store (all to myself!) for last week’s collaboration.

I’m en route back to New York from Lake Tahoe via Sacramento and Minneapolis after what was such an amazing and love-filled weekend. It made me so grateful I joined a sorority in college (Alpha Phi!) and made friends with some incredible girls who I’m lucky to call my friends so many years later.

Outfit: Tibi Rococo tank, J.Crew denim jacket + skirt, Joie heels, Sophie Hulme bag, Ray Ban sunglasses, BaubleBar necklace, Ice Watch

fall 2014 investment pieces

Fall 2014 Investment Pieces

Fall is one of my favorite seasons in New York so naturally I am already looking forward to September. As I’ve spoken about in the past on this blog, over the past couple of years I have looked to quality over quantity when it comes to my wardrobe. I’ve found I wear certain pieces so much more when they are well made and I’ve spent money on them. The investment has always paid off for me and I get to wear things for years rather than months.

In this spirit I wanted to share some personal favorite investment pieces of mine and also some future ones I plan to make with the changing of the seasons. Hope you find it helpful! 

Live-in Denim: I swear by Rag & Bone denim. I instantly feel a bit more tucked in, they don’t stretch too much like other denim brands and the wear well. Their “The Skinny Jean” are my favorite pair. Second favorite are these – I wear them almost every time I travel.

Wear With Everything Boots: My love for the Rag & Bone Newbury boots have been well documented on this blog but I am preaching again today. I can’t stress how comfortable they are. Instead of buying 5 pairs of boots that you’ll end up chucking when Spring has sprung, invest in these and thank me after you see how many ways they can be worn and how many miles can be walked in them.

Get a Statement Coat: Have a good coat in your possession that doesn’t make you feel drab or like you’re hiding. A coat with good details goes a long way when you’re facing a long winter. I absolutely love this one with leather sleeves from Vince. This one is a great alternative as well for much less.

Have the Perfect Layering Piece: If you’re like me you live for layering in the fall so I stock up on black tanks and camis that can have sweaters and jackets draped over them. The Tibi ones are my favorite and I love the high neckline on this one.

Have Go-To Neutral Flats: This pair by Tory Burch stand out just enough while being neutral and able to be paired with loads of outfits. I also adore these that bring just the right touch of edge to any ensemble.

Invest in a Timeless Bag: Buy a bag that you’ll never get sick of and that you’ll love carrying no matter what you’re wearing. I love my Sophie Hulme bag for its classic shape but this tote is so sleek and yet feminine. And Sophie does the best hardware around, let’s be honest.

Have a “You” Piece of Jewelry: My friend Bridget always wears an initial ring and I love how it’s always on her hand. It’s very “her” and I think every girl should have a piece of jewelry that they never want to leave home without. I think Vita Fede’s piece are timeless and this double crystal band ring has just enough elegance with a hint of edge.
