I’m on Nantucket right now and usually travel derails even the best laid intentions to eat healthy but I am completely on track and I credit this to the Prolon Fast Mimicking Diet I did in August. Since I finished, I haven’t had any cravings for sugar or dessert and haven’t eaten anything sweet in […]

Unlike last year when I was sweating on the first day of autumn, we are enjoying some beautiful crisp blue sky fall weather this year. It’s been so nice to actually be able wear cashmere sweaters and jeans with a jacket. I hope you enjoy this autumn inspiration no matter what your weather. Via Ralph […]

The new fall 2020 Sézane collection just launched today and it’s full of pieces with the perfect French flair. I love adding Sézane fashions to my wardrobe because they really are stylish but are also very reasonably priced. It’s the perfect time to shop for fall fashions too since it’s actually chilly now in New […]

I’ve had so many requests to post more flat lay outfits so I’m going to try to comply. One of the issues I run into is that things I buy often sell out so if that’s the case, I’ll try to make similar suggestions. It’s a beautiful crisp fall day in New York and this […]

There is a chill in the air now and it is time to stock up on cozy cashmere scarves and wool sweaters. A luxurious cashmere wrap is the perfect accessory to liven up a Zoom call or wrap around your neck for a walk in the park or dinner outside. My friend Heidi Wynne is […]

There is nothing I love more than a before and after, especially when it’s the home of someone with impeccable taste. Architectural Digest just published the recently redecorated Greenwich Village apartment of architect Gil Schafer online. He had the in-house interiors department give the pied-à-terre a slightly more contemporary feel which included lightening the walls […]

There has been a fall chill in the air of New York this week. So much so that I wore a cashmere sweater yesterday with a light coat. I wasn’t sweating but I did realize that I maybe needed to slow my roll and transition to a blazer first. Someone asked a columnist at The […]

So many people are back in the city for work and school that New York is definitely feeling back to normal but with masks. One thing that has helped with the normality is the reopening of museums. I visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Friday with a friend and it felt so good to […]

The weather in New York usually stays warm until October so you can definitely wear white jeans past Labor Day if you style them for the season. That means putting away your pastels and straw beach bags and replacing them with neutrals, darker colors, and heavier fabrics. It’s the time to start wearing camel, suede, […]

I came across some new photos of fashion designer Michael Bastian‘s downtown apartment recently and I was reminded how much I love his living room. It reminds me of the male equivalent of my art filled space except I don’t have a fireplace. There is something about it that always reminded me of autumn so […]

La Rentrée or the reentry period after summer is my favorite time of year because it means that life begins again in earnest in New York. Usually, fashion week kicks off with big events and then the fashion shows start. In the following weeks, there are press previews, lunches, design events, cocktail parties, art exhibitions, […]

I hope everyone is ready for the long holiday weekend. Make sure you give yourself some time to shop because there are some amazing Labor Day weekend sales* happening now. While some of it is summer merchandise, there is a lot of fall fashions and home decor to be found on sale too. Anthropologie – Extra […]

One of the most exciting collaborations for fall 2020 is Giuliva Heritage x H&M. I’ve been following Giuliva Heritage since the came onto the scene but their beautiful tailored pieces can be very expensive. The Giuliva Heritage x H&M collection has the same great look but at much more accessible prices. They suiting separates and […]

Sir John Richardson, the “renowned Picasso scholar, curator and bon vivant” was an inveterate collector as seen by the rooms in his lower Fifth Avenue loft and Connecticut house. He also had exquisite taste and now some of his fabulous finds can be yours when they come up for auction at Stair Galleries and Sotheby’s […]

Have you been reading all the features on whether New York is dead or not? I took a walk today and every street on the Upper East Side was bustling with outside dinners and a new bodega had opened in a location that was left empty when another bodega closed this past winter. A lot […]

I looked in the mirror last week and thought, “wow, my skin looks really great”. This was a pleasant surprise since I didn’t think it looked that great during quarantine and it’s completely product driven. We still can’t get facials yet in New York and I haven’t see Dr. Wade since January 3rd. She is […]

Since we can’t real vacations to Europe this summer, why not take a virtual vacation through the Instagram account of Marco Mansi. I’m especially loving his photos from Ravello, Italy which has now moved to the top of my must visit list for when we are allowed to go places again. Enjoy.

I think I mentioned Jennifer Ash Rudick’s new book Summer to Summer: Houses by the Sea in an earlier post but I just came across this new look at Aerin Lauder’s house in East Hampton from the book on the House & Garden website. I got to see some of this special Greek Revival house […]

After making everyone without a Nordstrom credit card wait to shop, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open to everyone. I probably won’t be inundating you with anymore posts after this but I first wanted to highlight some self care essentials that are on sale. This includes a few cozy pieces and more of my […]

When I knew I was going to the Berkshires, the first place on my list to visit was The Mount, the country home of novelist Edith Wharton from 1902 to 1911. Edith Wharton was born into one of the most wealthy and socially prominent families in New York and she would later draw upon her […]
