Philadelphia Bound

11 . 02 . 18

This week has been exhausting so I’m looking forward to getting away to Philadelphia this weekend. I haven’t been to the City of Brotherly Love since college so I can’t wait to experience all the city has to offer just a quick train ride away from New York City. Heidi Wynne moved to Philadelphia a […]

My Visit to Monticello

10 . 29 . 18

When I invited to Charlottesville at the end of September, it seemed serendipitous since I had already been looking into trips to Virginia to tour Monticello, the home of statesman Thomas Jefferson. I added a few days onto the trip and made plans to visit with interior designer Andrew Brown. He wasn’t going to arrive […]

Chic in NYC: Manhatta

09 . 20 . 18

When my lovely friend Andrea Stanford comes to town, we always go somewhere new. Last night it was the recently opened hotspot Manhatta. The newest edition to the Danny Meyer restaurant empire is terribly chic but the view of all of lower Manhattan is what really steals the show. Manhatta is located on the 60th floor […]

While I was at the Cabana Pop Up Party last week with my friend Young Huh, she announced that she was in need of a new tote bag for fall. Since we were at Bergdorf Goodman, I offered to go downstairs and help her find one. We kept bumping into people we knew at the […]

If you’re looking for a quiet place to get away from it all this fall, I highly recommend The Inn at Kenmore Hall in the Berkshires region of Western Massachusetts.  I have been anxiously following the renovation of the main house and property since owner Frank Muytjens and his partner Scott Edward Cole started posting about […]

I’ve had a few readers ask me how to style white jeans for autumn so I thought a blog post was warranted. I’m also over the heat and all my summer clothes so all I can think about are fall fashions. Since it stays warm through October, you can definitely still wear white jeans as […]

Hotel Lutetia in Paris

08 . 20 . 18

When I lived in Paris, I lived on rue Babylone on the top floor of a beautiful old building overlooking a park. When I looked out my window to the right, I could practically reach out and touch Le Bon Marché department store. At the end of the park on the left was the old […]

As much as I love traveling, there are only so many places I can go in a year. Some of my friends are also experts on certain cities and countries so I’ve asked a few of them to contribute travel posts for Habitually Chic. I couldn’t think of a better person to begin than my […]

Chateau de Villette

07 . 23 . 18

As with so many things these days, I learned about Chateau de Villette on Instagram. The beautiful property was renovated and designed under the expert eye of Jacques Garcia but was listed as a “private residence.” Further investigation has revealed that it is actually available for stays, private events and weddings. It has recently played […]

Happy Fourth of July!

07 . 04 . 18

I don’t know if there is a more patriotic place than Nantucket. Visiting right before the Fourth of July meant that flags were flying everywhere I went from Main Street to the Harbor and out to Sconset. In honor of Independence Day, I’ve put together some of my favorite images I took while I walked […]

Nantucket Bound

06 . 25 . 18

I’m headed to Nantucket tomorrow and could not be more excited. I have put together a great list of places to go and things to see thanks to all your advice. I can already tell this is going to be the first of many trips to the island. In honor of my trip, I thought […]

Old Westbury Gardens has been on my must visit list for a while and thanks to Preston Davis of Keep it Chic, we had a private tour last Friday. While I was most familiar with the gardens, I had not seen any photos of the interiors filled with antiques, chintz, chinoiserie, jib doors, and elegant […]

I have a bad habit of going on a trip and posting all my adventures on Instagram but never following up with a travel guide on the blog. Well, those days are changing. I am going to try to post a recap after every trip and go back to some of my old travels but […]

Planning for Nantucket

06 . 12 . 18

As I mentioned recently, I have never visited Nantucket. But that’s about to change. I decided to check airfare and hotel rates after I returned from Sag Harbor. I had a feeling I might be able to sneak in after the Nantucket Film Festival and before everyone arrived for the 4th of July holiday and […]

Annabel’s London

05 . 21 . 18

Most private clubs have a strict “no photos” policy. I was so afraid of getting my hosts kicked out of 5 Hertford in London that I didn’t dare pull out my camera, not even in the loo. Now, the pink ladies lounge of Annabel’s club is the most posted room on Instagram and the entire club […]

I’ve been to Versailles twice but didn’t make it to Le Hameau on either trip. The recently renovated and reopened Maison de la Reine will make it a first priority on my next visit. Marie-Antoinette had Le Hameau built by Richard Mique from 1783-86 as a place to escape court life and host small gatherings. […]

Bermuda Trip Recap

04 . 23 . 18

The first thing you notice when you arrive on Bermuda is the bright turquoise water as you drive across a bridge after leaving the airport. It’s so vivid that everyone comments on how it doesn’t look real. The whole island is so beautiful that it almost looks art directed. Needless to day, it was the […]
