Holiday Dressing

Wearing: H&M Faux Fur Jacket | BCBG Sweater | Boohoo Pleated Skirt | Derek Lam Velvet Booties


I feel like when people say “Holiday Dressing” they think Red, Black, Dresses, Glitter, and Metallics… I’m not much of a dress person and if I am I perfect the causal dresses over body con. I wanted to show off an outfit that can be worn for the Holidays, NYE, and beyond! Something I’m comfortable in yet chic and can take all the separates and wear them again!

Montreal Round-Up

My husband and I went to Montreal over Thanksgiving and oh my was it the cutest place ever! Just an hour and half away from New York City (flight) and you feel like you have been transported to a cute little town in Europe. Everyone there speaks French and they have the cutest cobblestone streets filled with amazing restaurants, speakeasies, and cafes. My favorite cafe was hands down Tommys, first off it’s right next to the STUNNING Notre-Dame Basilica plus the coziest interior filled with amazing plants, booths, and flowers.

While we were there it was freezing so layering was definitely a must! I have been obsessed with layering camis over t-shirts and turtlenecks lately. It gives your summer cami a fresh new look while keeping you warm during the colder months! What’s you favorite “keeping warm while fashionable” tip? Would love to hear!

The weather has been so crazy lately… first it’s hot and summery, we get a glimpse of fall then but to 80 degree weather! When the weather doesn’t want you to put you summer clothing away you have to get creative. I love pairing this OTS gingham top with the one of the hottest trends for fall the cropped raw hem denim and creeper shoes for the perfect transitional look.

NYFW Recap

I really can not believe how lucky I am to attend NYFW, to be able to see all of these amazing designers is really a dream come true. The energy in NYC during fashion week is unlike no other, the excitement, the fashion, the feeling of renewal. Every show/presentation I attended this year was absolutely stunning and already having me yearning for Spring! Below is my entire recap.

Kennebunkport


Every year my husband and I go back to Kennebunkport Maine to celebrate our wedding anniversary. If you don’t know about Kennebunkport, you should! This little slice of heaven is a quaint New England town surrounded by water and is the quintessential Maine. Filled with cute shops, amazing food, and rocky beaches you can’t find a better getaway.

Black Out


Wearing: Zara Tunic (similar here) | Zara Flares | Jeffrey Campbell Clogs


Everyone knows how much I love my all black outfits, they are always chic and always in style. However that doesn’t mean they don’t need an upgrade. I decided to layer unexpected pieces to make this all-black outfit more interesting. Playing with proportions and volume by mixing a long tunic with large flares giving this black-on-black look a fresh new take.

Boyfriend’s Shirt Redone!

Wearing: Husband’s Banana Republic Shirt (similar here) | Romwe Lace Up Skirt | Seychelles Sandals


I have been inspired with seeing all these stories on how to style a maybe then boring button up into something fashion forward…Cue me raiding my husband’s closets! I took his stripe work shirt and gave it new life! Paired with this AMAZING (I’m obsessed with anything lace-up!) skirt from Romwe. It fits like a glove and gives me everything I wanted from a skirt and more. Below are instructions on how to re-work your boyfriend, husband, own button up shirt.

1. Button your shirt from the bottom up to your chest, wherever you want the top to hit, keeping your arms out.

2. Pull both sleeves to the front and tie in a knot. Make sure when tying in a knot to go opposite ways, meaning if the first tie is right over left then do left over right the second time. This will keep the knot centered.

3. Adjust the top to puff a little to make it a sweetheart neckline and that’s it!

Overall Upgrade


Wearing: H&M Denim Overalls | H&M Stripe Tee | Topshop Sneakers


When you think of overalls a couple things come to mind… childlike, 90’s, can’t pull off. I’m here to tell you while all of those may be true pulling them off isn’t one of them. This white denim overall dress from H&M is the upgraded way to get the look. The streamline style allows this piece to be fun and sporty or minimalist chic, either way you can pull it off!

Check Mate

Wearing: Mango Gingham Dress | Topshop Sneakers | Denim Jacket (similar here)


What happens when your favorite trends merge together?! Pure happiness! I love classic B&W gingham (hello anything black and white!) and add a cami dress with frayed ends and you have a perfect look my friends! I love this dress from Mango so much, it can be worn as shown for a casual look, dressed up, or paired with a tee underneath for a throwback 90s look. Best part, it’s so comfy and lightweight, perfect for the summer season.
