Each January has a date designated as Blue Monday. It signifies a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for presents are due. The weather in New York has a windchill below zero but it’s also a bank holiday so at least most people don’t have […]

Did you watch The Last Days of John F. Kennedy, Jr. last week?  The best part was seeing videos of him with Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. We normally see photos of her running away from the paparazzi so it was nice to see her smiling and actually hear her voice. It’s also amazing that her fashion […]

Every fall, I try to put off wearing boots as long as possible since I know I’ll be wearing them until March. There are much colder temperatures forecast for this weekend and even possible snow flurries coming soon so I don’t think I can put them off much longer. I’ve been adding a few new […]

Fall transitional weather lasted about a day in New York before the temperatures dropped and the heat came on last week. We are all now wearing coats now and complaining about the cold. If you’re looking for coat inspiration, I highly recommend watching the film Ocean’s 8 if you haven’t already. It was filmed in […]

Cabin Fever

12 . 12 . 14

I really thought I would be feeling better by now but I’m still sick. I’m starting to have cabin fever from staying home more than usual but I’m also having real cabin fever.  Pinterest was full of snowy winter cabins this morning that had me wishing I was visiting one this holiday season. It also […]

I usually prefer to wait until after Thanksgiving to start thinking about Christmas but retailers won’t let me.  So in the spirit of “if you can’t beat them, join them” I give you some looks from the J.Crew December Style Guide.  The cute family photos shot in Norway actually make me excited for winter and […]

New York is a wet and slushy mess today.  I thank my lucky stars that my morning commute is from my bed to my desk.  I still can’t completely escape the grey skies and black and white landscape though.  Here’s how it’s inspiring me today.  Place de la Madeleine – Rue de la Paix Paris […]

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. – Edith Sitwell Photo of my apt via instagram

Winter Reading

The love of learning,the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow As much as I love reading on the beach in the summer, there is really nothing better than snuggling up with a good book in the winter.  Yesterday, I stopped by the Strand Bookstore in the newly renovated […]
