Raquel Allegra’s Ultimate Everyday Dress

There isn’t a single piece of Raquel Allegra in my closet that I don’t have in heavy rotation. She is the master of easy, comfortable and low maintenance fabrics. This new shirt dress is insanely soft and wearable and heading straight to the top of the stack of my go-to summer day dresses.

Memorial Day Shred

I dipped my toe in the water with a little knee shredding on my denim last season and we’ve all noticed that designers have taken the look a lot further this season. I love contrasting super casual worn in jeans with a crisp white top or a silk blouse. For a comfortable higher waisted, relaxed...

Skirting – Summer Style Inspo

As the temperatures hit triple digits last week, it was the prompt I needed to start pulling my skirts to the front of the closet. Skirts aren’t always the easiest throw on since they need a complimentary partner to go up top. That’s when I turn to Pinterest for some outfit inspo. Here are...

A Tale of Two White Shirts and a Denim Skirt

I think we can all agree that you can never have too many white shirts. They kind of fall into the jeans camp where different looks call for different cuts. Sometimes you need a high neck, sometimes a short sleeve, and sometimes the kind of fabric is what’s integral to making an outfit work. As...

Overall Overhaul

I resisted the return of overalls until I finally caved in and tried on Citizens of Humanity’s Quincey style. I have to say it doesn’t take more thought than throwing on your favorite pair of jeans. You can still wear them with tees, sweaters and leather jackets and, as I discovered the...

Thinking Pink

When I was buying spring/summer for my boutiques last fall, there was a strong color trend that ran through each collection – Pink and all it’s glorious and feminine shades. Whether it’s just a simple piece of jewelry here, a sweater or a pair of shorts below, it’s a color...

Good As Gold

It’s not often that I’m without a gold accessory on hand. It’s as relevant as any neutrals and adds just the right amount of shine and texture. I’ve been waiting for these n.d.c Made by Hand sandals to arrive in store and love the delicate and feminine straps. Call 1 877 342...

Hanging Loose at Night

The Getting Back To Square 1 DC pants are making their second appearance (I told you I’ve been wearing them all the time) and I’ve found them to be super easy to style for evening looks. It’s simple when you go head to toe black – Just add some variety with texture, like a leather...

Hanging Loose

 So, I know the jury is out on the Hammer pants, but I will say this: they are extremely comfortable and surprisingly flattering, if you get the right fit. I’ve been kicking around in the Getting Back to Square 1 black slouch DC pants, and I’ve found them to be the perfect pant for day...

Golden Goose Yellow Fever

No other color represents spring better than the color yellow. And as the daffodils bloom, and the sun shines longer, these yellow color blocked Golden Goose hi tops are quickly becoming my faves. And they’ve brought a whole new meaning to catching yellow fever! New arrival to DIANI. Call 1 877...

Chloe – Back to the Blocks

A new crop of heels are emerging and they’re sturdy and chic and and dare I say practical. The chunky blocks go perfectly with a cropped wide pant or boyfriend jean and give the height you need to still feel elegant. I love the flesh tone of my new Chloe blocks. They’re fresh and help transition...

Scoops of Ice Cream and a Santa Barbara Sunset

While I trudge through the snow in NYC on Valentine’s Day (don’t feel too sorry for me, my husband just flew out), I’m remembering one of my favorite sessions with the brilliant Leela Cyd. She captured Jeffrey and me on a post dinner stroll along the pier in Santa Barbara. We grabbed...

Snuggling and Santa Barbara Sunsets

I have to admit, I don’t spend nearly as much time at the beach as I should. For someone who lives in a beach town, you’d think I’d head down to the shores at the end of every day. Not so. I live up in a canyon and, whilst I can see the ocean, it seems like another world down there...

Pedal Partners

Grabbing our bikes and taking them down the hill for a leisurely pedal around downtown is always time well spent, especially with Valentine’s Day approaching. And, while NYC is buried in snow, I’ll take as many days like these as I can… in no time I’ll be knee deep with the rest...
