I can’t believe we’re already into October. September seemed to go by in a flash. But it still feels a bit like summer. I can’t wait until it’s a little cooler and the leaves change. Until then, here’s some inspiration for the month. Camel Hair Blazer Double-breasted wool and cashmere-blend blazer Similar shawl collar cardigan […]

Welcome to the first day of Fall! Spring may last longer in New York but autumn is the city’s best season. Of course, it stays warm through October and we don’t see peak foliage until late October but that doesn’t mean it’s still not exciting. Here are some fall inspired images and fashions to get […]

I’ve always loved the French phrase la rentrée which means the reentry. It encompasses back to school and back to work as everyone returns from their August holidays and tries to get back on track. They’ve already come back but as Americans go back to school and work after this long Labor Day weekend, it’s a time […]

En Vacances 2020

08 . 17 . 21

I always find it amazing that the whole of Europe can be en vacances at the same exact time. I exaggerate of course, but only slightly. I haven’t done a color post in a while so this one is inspired by holidays spend on Greek isles and Italian beaches. @valerieleberichel @aerin Belted lace-trimmed cotton dress […]

Last March seems to drag on forever but his March flew by and I can’t believe it’s April. I’m not really complaining though since it’s my birthday month and Central Park is finally starting to bloom. I plan to add a little color to my wardrobe with my favorite spring shades of lilac and lavender. […]

“Whether you consider it a fresh start or a clean slate, there is nothing better than the beginning of January to plan out what you want to do in the coming year. I personally love a new blank calendar just brimming with possibilities. I like to plan out each month which helps me plan out […]

Long time readers know that grey is my go to color for fall and winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black does. It also pairs well with tan, brown, burgundy, navy, and black. November is also when I pay homage to my favorite shades of grey […]

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, […]

“April is the cruellest month, breedingLilacs out of the dead land, mixingMemory and desire, stirringDull roots with spring rain.” – T.S. Eliot I don’t think even T.S. Eliot could have predicted just how cruel April would be in 2020. April has always been my favorite month since it contains the day of my birth but […]

It turned arcticly cold this week in New York which means I’ve swathed from head to toe in grey cashmere and wool. Grey is always my go to color for winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black does. It also pairs well with tan, brown, burgundy, […]

I’ll admit that it felt like this summer flew by but I’m still very ready for la rentrée, which is what the French call the reentry after their August holidays. I can’t wait for sweater weather, leaf peeping, and fall events like the Lee Radziwill auction at Christie’s in October. If you’re not excited for […]

It’s a bank holiday weekend in the UK and it feels everyone else in Europe is en vacances until September begins. I’ve been traveling so much this summer that I’m happy to be at home getting ready for fall. But here’s one last look at summer for those of you who aren’t ready for it […]

Summertime Blues 2019

08 . 19 . 19

I posted a Summertimes Blues post last August and I liked it so much I decided to repost it again this year. I made a few tweaks so it’s not exactly the same. I hope you are enjoying your last weeks of summer before it’s back to school and reality time. Interior design by SJB Nine […]
