Bento

 Good morning and happy Monday! I’ve been a fan of MM.LaFleur for a long time and was so excited to finally try the Bento Box, a selection of 4-6 work wardrobe staples hand-picked for you based on your style and fit preferences.  Of the five garments I received, all except the jardigan are machine-washable. It’s […]

Blazer

 Wearing this blazer non-stop – and I find myself looking for similar styles: a little boxy but slim in the arms, hip-length, and bonus points if it has unique detailing (like the leather pockets on the one I’m wearing!). A few I’ve bookmarked: Under $100: In blush here for $75, in a neutral soft boucle here […]

Beige

 Cheers to the short week – it’s Fri-YAY! We’ve had so much fun with a “revolving door” of visitors lately!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend […]

Cargo

 Three things: This skirt (located the exact same one on consignment here!) – In my closet for *I think* 9 years, it has always been a special one. I found it during a huge sale here (and is it cheesy that I still remember the thrill of finding it in the sale section in the store?!)… I […]

Floral and Tweed

 Feeling all kinds of flirty, feminine and confident in this matching floral set for work today. It’s equal parts romantic and sophisticated – the fuss-free day-to-night outfit that I can depend on to get me through the day. That, and a double vanilla latte, of course!

 Weekend relaxation at its best! I “shopped” my closet and pulled out this old full midi skirt from a few years ago.

Trench Coat Love

 It’s no secret that I love, love, love trench coats. They are the epitome of classic, the best investments I’ve made (remember the Stella McCartney one I wore endlessly for several years?), and among my favorite items in my closet. I’ve scored many of them at sale season (including the Gucci one I’m wearing here), […]

3 Days in Bar III

 Good morning! I partnered with Bar III to share some of their latest arrivals: modern pieces to mix in with what I already have in my closet to make things feel fresh and current. My favorite piece is the romantic white cold-shoulder top but the jumpsuit was a surprise winner for me too! Loved how my […]

Linen

 We got a rare date night out and headed to our favorite meal: sushi. After our trip to Japan last year, we decided that we would, without hesitation, travel there every year if we could. Probably not going to happen this year (sad face!), but there’s always next! ‘Til then, we’ll take our sushi dinner and think […]

Flared

 Weekend goals: unpack everything and enjoy our newly installed floors! Phew. It’s been a journey (that’s for sure) – one that we didn’t expect would be so complicated and fraught with challenges.

Lucia at Three

 I’m feeling pretty lucky: I get to celebrate my third Mother’s Day with my favorite girl this weekend. Lucia at three is a hoot: she is a natural little actress, with comedic timing even! She wants to wear dresses all of the time, loves to climb trees and eats sushi. After a really wet, stormy winter, […]
