101: wardrobe transitioning (summer to fall)

101: wardrobe transitioning (summer to fall)

October 2nd, 2014

So when I wrote this post back in spring – about wardrobe transitioning from winter to spring – I figured it would cover the reverse too. You know, summer to fall. But it’s actually a little different. It’s still been quite mild here in New York, yet the outfits I lived in all summer feel […]

101: how to pin roll your jeans

Now that the weather’s getting a teensy bit warmer I’m ready to ditch my boots and socks, and start wearing more “spring” attire – you with me? While cropped pants are an easy way to show off some ankle, a cuffed jean can give the same effect – with a little extra flair. I love […]

101: wardrobe transitioning (winter to spring)

April 22nd, 2014

It’s Spring. Yet it’s not. If you live in the Northeast you know what I’m talking about. It could be freezing in the morning, and then you find yourself stripping off layers by lunchtime. It feels like every article of clothing I own needs to be at the ready, until we can safely say that […]

This winter. It was 9 degrees this morning, and that was before the wind chill. I’m so done with hats, gloves and heavy coats –  how about you? As there seems to be no end to this deep freeze we’re in, I am more than ever grateful for this find:  legging jeans I LOVE these legging […]

Following my latest efforts to purge my wardrobe and streamline “my style”, I found myself with several bags – even more than usual – of clothing, shoes and accessories. There’s always a mixed bag of feelings associated with this occurrence. On the one hand, relief. Relief that those rarely (or in a few cases, never) worn […]

favor-“ette”: denim shirt (part two)

December 3rd, 2013

As my love for the denim shirt began to grow, so did the number of denim shirts in my wardrobe. And while the fitted, medium-wash shirt is still highest in rotation, this is definitely a close second: image credit: Madewell I love this oversized chambray button-up, in a lighter wash. I suggest going up one […]

For a long time I didn’t wear sneakers, except for running. I’m not a Converse girl, and I could never find a pair that was both stylish and worked well enough with my wardrobe to justify the purchase. And then Madewell arrived. I was an early adopter on-line, and practically catapulted myself to Soho when […]

favor-“ette”: a perfectly (imperfect) rolled sleeve

Am I the only one who’s obsessed with J. Crew? Like, obsessed in that I-worship-Jenna-Lyons kind of way? Of the many (many) things they do well, I think one of the best is the perfectly imperfect vibe that all of the outfits seem to project. Nothing ever looks “done”, yet it always looks totally cool.

One of the items on my life list is to do a major purge of my wardrobe (#36, if you’re interested). I know I’ve shared my clothing travails here before, and have even enlisted the help of a stellar wardrobe consultant to help me out. But I’m still “tweaking”. And this season I want to get […]

101: cold weather running

February 19th, 2013

fleece/tee shirt/leggings/hat/glittens/warmers Running is a part of my life that I rarely talk about, even though I’ve been doing it for almost 20 years. Mainly because I hate it. Can you imagine hating something – and sticking with it – for that long? I know – but I have my reasons. And the number one […]
