Old Standbys

Black and White

As much as I love to shop for new things, sometimes you just have to stick with old standbys like this black and white dress. It’s from a couple of years ago at H&M, and is easy to wear with different accessory/shoe combinations. The one new thing I’m wearing is my bow belt. I’ve been coveting the Kate Spade version for longer than I can remember, but never felt like I could shell out $70 for a belt. Lucky for me, LOFT had one on sale for far less. Which old standbys do you always fall back on and how do you change them up? I would love to hear from you!

Weekend Deals

There are so many amazing sales happening this weekend that I just had to put a quick post together. This is a great time to fill out your fall wardrobe with sweaters, jackets, boots and more, and sales at some of my favorite stores guarantee some fabulous deals. Here’s the lo-down:

Happy Shopping!

Slouchy Stripes

Fall Colors

Mother Nature is clearly confused. It’s mid-October, and the weather in New York City has been very up and down. Some days are sweater weather perfection, while others (like yesterday) are 70 and humid. So I’ve been wearing a hybrid version of my wardrobe and making the most of my collection of lightweight jackets and sweaters. I love that this sweater is slouchy, but still flattering and feminine. The heart-shaped elbow patches are just an added bonus! Read More →

Beauty In The Battle

It’s rare these days to meet someone who doesn’t have a connection to cancer. The reach of the disease is staggering, and far too many lives have been lost. But thankfully, there are so many amazing survival stories too. Having been by my mom’s side through two surgeries and months of treatment, I can tell you that true beauty and strength definitely come from within. One of the best days of my life was the day the doctors told my mom she was cancer-free, and I am endlessly grateful for the incredible care she received. I know full well that many people never reach that day, and that the battle against cancer is an uphill fight. It is SO important to continue to raise money for research and celebrate the survivors among us.

In my opinion, the best clothes aren’t from the trendiest designers, they’re the ones that give back, and that’s why I want to introduce you to a special line of tees from Life Is Good. The Avon Walk Giving Collection includes six limited edition tees and a tote, and 100% of proceeds go towards cancer research and access to care.


There are many fun ways to style a graphic tee, and I’m really excited to wear this one from the collection. Life is short and every day is precious. Please consider supporting this very worthy cause with a tee for you or someone you love.

Disclosure: While this is a sponsored post, this is clearly a cause that means a lot to me and all opinions are my own. Thanks to Life is Good for doing something good for others.

Underrated Layer

You’ve probably noticed by now that my denim vest and I have a love-love relationship. But, because it’s light wash (and not exactly the warmest), I’m looking to expand my vest horizons for fall and winter. Fortunately, there are tons of options: puffy, quilted, (faux) fur, knit, utility, moto, suit…I could go on and on. I just found a fluffy buffalo checked vest at TJ Maxx, and I’ve been doing some window shopping too. In case you’re also on the hunt, these are all worth a click:
