Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Keep reading for the recipe…

While it seems like summer finally hit the Northeast… it’s still the end of August and I can’t help but think of my favorite season.  With fall, comes cooler temps, especially at night but the days can still be rather warm – in steps transitional style.  What I love about this outfit, for late August into September, is the versatility.  The silk tank layered with a cropped tweed like jacket adds while the jeans cuffed still feel fun and weather… Read more »

açaí bowl recipe

One of my favorite quick + easy breakfast recipes (outside of a green juice) is an açaí bowl.  Not only does it taste delicious, but it also looks great too.. which earns major points in my book.  What I love about açaí bowls, is that like green juice, the possibilities are endless.  Today’s recipe is a little tropical but with a good dose of healthy (hidden) greens.

Happy Monday… is there really such a thing?  Today, I would have to say yes! While I’m beyond exhausted, in a matter of hours I will be getting ready to attending Le Dîner en Blanc, and while said event was the cause of a bucket boat load of stress yesterday, while we drove all over Long Island looking for our supplies, (thank God we have a car and can drive out to LI for these types of excursions… I don’t think… Read more »

If you have been following my blog for a while now, then you know that mixing prints/textures is my thing.  The more interesting details a look has, the more I love it.  While I have a great appreciation for the simply things in life, when it come to fashion, I tend to lean towards the complex. Case in point, with todays outfit. When it comes to mixing prints, it’s all about having some common thread amongst the patterns you’re mixing…. Read more »

MICHAEL Michael Kors Dress, BB Dakota Faux Leather Vest, Sage+Sparkle

Over the weekend, we came across a new mural in Astoria that I knew I had to take pictures in front of.  I wish I knew what the artist was thinking, while they created this pieces or even who the artist is.  Something about this wall reminds me of a grownup version of the Disney song “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah“, probably not at all what the artist intended but what can I say, I relate many things in my life back to musicals,… Read more »
