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 […]

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 […]

So excited about today’s post! As I’ve written before, I really struggled with the whole “what to wear” thing after having Noah.  Having had two big kids for so long – as well as my own business – I was accustomed to dressing in a more stepped-up/less practical fashion than I had to when Chelsea and […]

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 […]

I’ll admit, I was late to the denim shirt trend. I never really appreciated how versatile this article of clothing could be, until I found myself reaching for it again and again – for all sorts of outfits and occasions. image credit: J. Crew Now I practically live in this shirt. It’s a medium wash and […]

I need your help here guys. See, I’ve been obsessing over clogs lately. A very specific kind of clog. Mid-height heel, a little strappy, and just a bit nerdy.   image credit: nina z I typically think of these shoes for warmer weather – and I have a pair that I love with my summer […]

favor-“ette”: the perfect pair of shorts

sanctuary long shorts

August 13th, 2013

At some point early on in my 40’s, I just stopped wearing shorts. I found them to be too casual, not very flattering, and for some reason, “not befitting” a woman of a certain age. And then the lovely gals at Tumbleweed sent me a version of these, to wear under a few summer dresses […]

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 […]
