A Change of Direction

07 . 29 . 20

It’s always around the end of July that I start to get sick of my colorful summer clothes and begin to reach for neutrals. It’s also around this time that I try to take advantage of the final days of sale season. There are still a a lot of good pieces left this year. I’ve […]

Palazzo Sacchetti

07 . 17 . 20

Since we can’t travel the world right now, the next best thing is to travel virtually. Today, Gucci showed their Gucci Epilogue collection at the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome and I took a deep dive into its historic beauty. Palazzo Sacchetti is one of the most beautiful late Renaissance buildings in all of Rome. The […]

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s hard to feel inspired to blog when you can’t go anywhere or do anything. New York just cancelled all large events that require a permit through September which means no fashion week or design events that make autumn in the city so exciting. I’m going to try to plan a […]

I recently learned that there are Seastreak ferries from New York to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. They take five to six hours and you can’t bring a car but you can remain socially distant outside. I will probably just take my chances with the easy one hour flight from LaGuardia to Nantucket but will consider […]

Summer by the Sea

07 . 06 . 20

The Coronavirus crisis caused many companies to get creative. Ralph Lauren Home tapped photographer Matt Albiani to photograph their summer collection at his house Sea Roost in Montauk. I stayed at Sea Roost last year and can attest that it was the perfect backdrop for nautically inspired tableware and Aran sweater inspired blankets and pillows […]

Quarantine felt like the slowest time ever but now it feels like summer is flying by. The Fourth of July will be here in a week and a half and if you need anything patriotic for your family, I’ve got you covered. You can never go wrong with a Ralph Lauren Cotton Flag Sweater. Striped […]

Sears Cottage

06 . 10 . 20

Some of you might remember that my friend Grant Gibson spends time in Maine every summer. I asked him today if he still planned to go since they have a two week quarantine for anyone coming into the state. I have read they might change this since most of the businesses in the state depend […]

Since it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to go out to the Hamptons or anywhere else this summer, I am starting to think about lightening up my home decor for warmer weather. It’s time to put away the velvet pillows and cashmere throw blankets and swap them with lighter linen and cotton […]

It might be cold today but it will be in the 70s next weekend. Perfect time to think about the house dress, a loose and comfortable dress that can be worn for Zoom calls and a walk around the block without feeling constricted. I’ve put together 20 of my favorites to get you started. I’ve […]

After a very rainy and grey April, it feels like blue skies are ahead which means we can finally start wearing cute clothes. I’m ready to burn everything I’ve worn so far in quarantine so far and if you are too, I’ve put together some colorful options to get you excited about warmer weather. I’ve […]

It was 70 degrees in New York on Monday which makes me glad I’ve already been buying dresses for spring and summer. I just know it’s going to be consistently warm very soon after a record warm winter. I’ve put together 20 dresses that are perfect for everyday, events, Easter, and more. I also tried […]

While most people think of the Hamptons as just a place to visit in the summer, they can be just as fun off season. Last week, my friend Michelle Adams and I went out to Montauk to stay at Sea Roost and visit some of our favorite friends and stores out east. You may remember […]
