April showers are upon us in New York and that means trench coat weather. I still haven’t found the perfect replacement for my beloved Gryphon trench that finally had to be retired so I’m hoping one of these options might be perfect for me. But if you need a new trench, hopefully one of these […]

Spring has sprung and Mother’s Day will be here before we know it. So will lazy beach days and warm summer nights. Fortunately, my friend Heidi Wynne has a line of luxurious, lightweight cashmere, and chic straw hats and bags to prepare us for warmer weather. Her collection has wonderful options for spring wardrobe additions […]

It’s finally warm enough to wear dresses in New York and I could not be more excited. I already turned over my closet and realized that most of my dresses are either blue, blue striped, or black so it’s time to add a little more life into my wardrobe for this spring and summer. My […]

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. […]

It’s finally warmed up and I’m ready to lighten up my wardrobe and my apartment for spring, I’ve put together the chicest bags, furniture, and accessories in wicker, raffia, and straw to change up your outfits and interiors. I bought this Celine Medium Triomphe Basket Bag last year right before quarantine. It was my birthday […]

It was over 70 degrees yesterday but we might get snow flurries next week so dressing in March and even April can be a challenge. This year, I’m inspired by Sofia Coppola who has the perfect wardrobe for unpredictable weather. Her closet staples include navy sweaters, black pants, blue shirts, navy coats, striped tops, ballet […]

Since not many people are going into the office right now, there is no reason to carry a giant tote bag filled with a laptop, gym clothes, and everything else under the sun. Now crossbody bags are the perfect size to hold just what you need for a walk or a trip to the store. […]

I wasn’t able to walk as much as I would have liked this winter due to all the snow. Warmer weather is on the way next week and I can’t wait to take a walk every day and I’ve got lots of new sneakers to wear on them. I have bought so many pairs, someone […]

Deeda Blair: Part Deux

02 . 22 . 21

I had a great response to my first Deeda Blair post about her elegance and New York apartment and I’m following it up with a look at her Georgetown home. She and her late husband William Blair purchased the 1930s red brick Georgian home in the late 1960s when Mr. Blair “was named the first […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about elegance lately. Propriety is another thing that’s been on my mind due to thirst trap photos and Generation Z telling us where we can part our hair. As Justin Sylvester said today, “Why should we take advice from kids who are still on their parent’s family plan?” Why are […]

Because my hair is honey caramel colored, I’ve had a very hard time finding a camel coat that doesn’t make me look like the same color from head to toe. I finally found one that is the perfect shade of camel and the only thing getting me through winter and the pandemic now is planning […]

If I have one piece of advice for you this year, it’s that you better do something for Valentine’s Day. It’s been a hard year for everyone and we could all use a pick me up this month. Obviously those of you with significant others should do something for each other but don’t forget about […]

The third Monday in January is always designated as Blue Monday. It’s a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for the gifts are due. It’s even harder this year with the pandemic and the recent insurrection. I’ve seen a lot of people post in the […]

Celine Spring 2021

01 . 06 . 21

I hated the Celine Spring 2021 runway styling but luckily, Hedi Slimane redeemed himself with the Celine Spring 2021 campaign photos. I can’t wait to wear these looks when the weather warms up and model Rianne Van Rompaey has me seriously contemplating letting my hair grow out longer. The spring can’t come soon enough for […]

I’ve had a few people ask for a post of what I bought myself recently and I finally had time to put it together. Some things were Christmas presents to myself and others were items I picked up and ordered in the last few months. While upstate visiting The Mayflower Inn, I bought this Houdini […]

Pajama Party 2020

12 . 20 . 20

Since we’re all going to be spending a lot of time at home over the holidays, that means we sometimes won’t be getting dressed and could probably use some new pajamas. As much as I love plaid PJs, they always seem very Christmasy and I prefer styles that can be worn for sleeping, lounging, and […]

My friend Heidi Wynne, who you are probably familiar with by now, has a collection of luxurious cashmere wraps and fisherman knit sweaters, which all make thoughtful holiday gifts. Heidi, who is based in the Hudson Valley, has designed a line that is timeless with a focus on quality. Because the collection is classic and […]
