Long Line


 Coat: Mango (also love this one) // Sweater: Zara (similar here)  // Jeans: J.Brand (similar here and here) // Shoes: J.Crew (old, similar here) // Hat: SofiaCashmere // Sunnies: Celine

Christmas flew by in a blink of an eye and alas, we have entered New Years week. In my tireless quest for the perfect New Year's Eve outfit, I have encountered some of the great post-Christmas sales and the Resort 2015 styles that are rapidly hitting the stores. As per usual when I am shopping for something I really need, I find a million and one things that I don't really need. Nevertheless,  I have the uncanny ability to justify any want into a need. In fact, to the average person I suppose my inner monologue while shopping would be reminiscent of a used car salesman's pitch. I am also a firm believer in the saying that "nothing haunts us like the things we didn't buy." Which brings me to this coat, which is undoubtedly one of my favorite after Christmas sale finds. I have been wanting an oversized long-line coat for sometime now, and finding one at a undersized price point was a great victory in my book. And though at this point I may show up to my NYE party as naked as baby New Year, if nothing else, I have this super chic coat to keep me warm on the walk between the Uber and my door. I hope everyone has great beginning to the week and safe travels this holiday season. And as always, thank you as always for reading!

Gray // Gray

 One: Sweater: Zara // Skirt: Zara // Jacket: Maje (similar here and 30% off your entire purchase with code WRAPITUP) // Shoes: Schutz // Bag: Gucci // Sunnies: Karen Walker
Two: Shirt: Madewell (30% off your entire purchase with code WRAPITUP) // Pants: c/o Ann Taylor // Necklace: Nordstrom // Bag: Clare Vivier // Shoes: Banana Republic // Sunnies: Karen Walker // Lips: NARS


Hello and happy Monday! I can't believe it is the week of Christmas already. I am gearing up for a week filled of shopping, eating, drinking, and family time! While gray doesn't necessarily scream holiday, it is such a chic winter shade that is a perfect neutral canvas for accessories. Most importantly, all of these gray items are warm and cozy pieces that feel way more like lounge wear than they look. I hope everyone has safe travels and happy last minute shopping this week, and thank you as always for reading.

Bows on Toes

Shirt: J.Crew (On sale and an extra 40% off with code JINGLE)// Shoes: Kate Spade // Jeans: Topshop // Jacket: Maje (similar here, and 30% off your entire purchase with code WRAPITUP) // Sunnies: Karen Walker // Lips: Stile 'Fiore'


Hello and happy Wednesday! Since we are officially half way to the weekend I wanted to discuss one of my favorite weekend styling schemes: the classic combo of jeans, t-shirt, and pumps. Ok, so this combination can be very boring if you are not careful, so choosing pieces that have a little more oomph will keep you from looking too basic. For example: this comfy black sweatshirt is deceptively fancy with a silk ruffle hem. My jeans have a trendy high waist and just the right amount of distressing, and well, these pumps with their jewel bow couldn’t be more holiday party ready. I love that I wore them to a black tie event, and I can also throw them on with jeans. All that’s left is to toss on my leather jacket and I am good to go for Saturday night of dinner and drinks.

Minimal Chic

 Shoes: Madewell // Turtleneck: Mason // Shirt: Madewell // Jeans: JBrand // Clutch: Zara (very similar here and here) // Sunnies: Karen Walker


Happy Monday! One of the key basics every woman should own is a pair of black flats. You would think that this acquisition would be easy enough, right? Well, to find a pair that are comfortable, chic and don’t make you look completely boring takes some serious searching. That is when I recently stumbled upon this Madewell pair. I love their menswear inspired shape, their shine, and most of all… no blisters in sight. My new shoes inspired the rest of my minimal outfit that makes me feel kind of like a Parisian artiste!  I added my fluffy blush clutch to break up the black and add a fun element to this otherwise simple ensemble. I hope everyone has a great start to the week, and as always, thank you for reading.

Vineyard Weekend


 Jacket: Fillmore (It's waterproof!) // Vest: J.Crew (On sale and an additional 30% off with code MERRYCARD using your J.Crew card) // Sweater: c/o Ann Taylor  // Shirt: Madewell // Jeans: JBrand  (also love the way Madewell jeans fit here) // Hat: J.Crew (On sale and an additional 30% off with code MERRYCARD using your J.Crew card) / Boots: Stuart Weitzman // Bag: Gucci // Lips: Bobbi Brown 'Red' // Sunnies: Rayban 

 

Happy Friday! I wore this outfit last weekend on a Saturday trip to Cana Vineyards in the Virginia countryside. While the weather was cold and rainy, I managed to stay plenty warm thanks to a lot of layers, and a glass or two of red wine. Speaking of warm, one of my favorite purchases of late is this cozy red cashmere hat.  It’s a great way to add a pop of color to an outfit and it is perfect for the holidays. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and thank you for reading.
