Day to Night The most versatile things in your closet can be elevated by the switch of a shoe. From wearing sneakers to heels and taking this outfit day to night, this is one of my favorite outfits right now. I can add a scarf or a jacket when it gets cooler, and with a […]


I have an older brother.  That sentence right there should tell you everything you need to know; he teased me relentlessly, I had a crush on every single one of his friends and he was totally embarrassed by me.  After being tortured by him for years, I realized one day that his initials are in […]

Jeans + White Tee

Organize Your Accessories, Part 1

 I love nothing more than accessories; jewels, pearls, golds, sterling silvers, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, you name it.  Organizing my jewelry, especially necklaces and earrings, is another matter!  Coco Chanel is famous for advising that you should take off one accessory before leaving the house.  I say do whatever makes you feel fabulous (unless that […]
