Hi Friends! I hope everyone is having an amazing week. I know so many find the holiday season stressful, and yes, that can be true. But I truly adore the holiday season and celebrating with friends and family! Holiday parties galore call for endless outfits. I love a festive look, but sometimes you want something thats a bit more casual, with a little edge, instead of feeling like you dumped a bucket of glitter on yourself. A great pair of boots can help add a little edge to any outfit. This pair from Sudini adds a whole lot of comfort to the look as well. The centerpiece of this look is one of my favorite pieces from Marissa Webb, the queen of downtown edge, but in the most refined way. Winter dressing is all about layers. I took this double breasted vest top and layered a turtleneck bodysuit under it. Paired with a little distressed denim and tall boots, the look is so easy and great for rocking from office to holiday party.
Style tip: I buttoned the vest off center. You can do this with any kind of vest for a look with a bit of interest.
You know that dress that always makes you feel fantastic the moment you put it on? This bright yellow dress from Marissa Webb does that for me. It’s easy, effortless and makes the perfect statement. Though this flirty little dress is sold out, I’ve picked a few of my favorite yellow dresses to brighten the end of your summer days.
Out and about in this post with my amazing and talented friend Ashley Nelson of On The 10. Ashley has an amazing blog and Instagram @Ashleynii. She’s one of my absolute favorite people to grab a quick workout or glass of rose with….or both 🙂
As the weather warms and those legs that haven’t seen sunlight find themselves revealed, it’s time to take a refresh. This cheeky little spring romper number from Marissa Webb immediately caught my eye. I loved the lapel neckline, belted waist and short hemline. Though I loved the short-short look, my poor legs hadn’t seen the sun for a bit. I remedied that problem with a touch of Prtty Peaushun. It added the perfect touch of color so that my legs wouldn’t blind you.
I added a few fun accessories to finish the look. My favorite Olympia Le-Tan Clutch, these aaaaammmmmazing Tuleste feather earrings, and a great Valentino rockstud heel. Happy spring friends!
Don’t we all love shopping for the season ahead? I love a great trend just like the next girl, but sometimes I feel a bit defeated when something goes so out of style after one season. There are trends, that even though they are trendy, are going to stick after a season or two. Military style is my favorite timeless trend that isn’t so trendy as to blow away with the summer wind. Take a look at a few of my favorite military staples for this coming season.
It may finally be spring in New York! And as my countdown to my wedding nears (42 days and counting) I am working on savoring every beautiful moment. This day, Trevor and I spent a relaxing afternoon enjoying our neighborhood and walking to a few of our favorite haunts (The Smith, Green Market at Union Sq, etc).
I may be a little eager but I was ready to head out in my perfect new moto from Banana Republic. I am loving the new direction at BR thanks to Marissa Webb. Marissa has already made a name for herself with her namesake collection (which I’m obsessed with). Now she’s bringing that same outstanding style, attention to detail, fabrics and tailoring to the BR name. If you live in New York, be sure to check out their new 5th ave store near Union Sq. It’s a shopping sanctuary.
Sitting at the Marissa Webb show, the words effortlessly cool were streaming through my head. Marissa’s collection is the perfect pairing of staple pieces layered in just the right way. We saw lots of hard tailoring mixed with soft feminine lines. There were perfectly tailored blazers layered over flowing dresses, army jackets that were cinched at the waist, and lots of variations of the shirt dress. I especially loved the reacurring construction detail we saw on so many of the dresses which was a simple little button placket running down the entire center back. The color pallete was easy and oh so possible to intigrate into your wardrobe. I’m already seeing these chic little numbers hanging in my closet this spring.
