One Skirt Five Ways, Black and White Stripes, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Metallic Pumps, Black Jewelry

Well, that went by fast! Can you believe it’s already Friday? Today, I’m sharing with you the last look in my week-long “One Skirt, Five Ways” series.  I hope you have enjoyed all of the looks this far.  If you have been following along, I’m curious – which look was your favorite? For me it’s hard to choice, as I really do love them ALL – each look shows a bit of my personal style, which is what fashion is… Read more »

Full Skirt, Shoptherunaway, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Nordstrom, Zara, One Skirt Five Ways, How to wear a full skirt

Another day, another skirt pic! Are you sick of this skirt yet?  I sure hope not.  I for one, can not get enough of it – obviously.  Today, is also a favorite though, cause let’s be honest, the scarf and the shoes are absolutely fabulous and totally make the look. I say that and then I have to apologize, because they are both last season (scarf from Nordstrom and shoes from Zara) and no longer available.  I did however find a… Read more »

Full Skirt, One Skirt Five Ways, H&M, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Shop the Runaway

Today marks Day 3 of “One Skirt, Five Ways” and it happens to be one of my favorites.  I actually wore this outfit to work last week and received so many compliments on the color combination, that I knew I had to include in this series.  Hunter green and pale pink (see similar color combo here) is such an unexpected color combination that really feels like a classic.  I love how alone each piece is simple, but together this looked… Read more »

FEED Supper, #feedsupper World Food Program, WFP

When a coworker told me about FEED Supper, I knew I had to participate.  While I had lofty goals of hosting a dinner party, I didn’t have much time so I ended up hosting a dinner for two… i.e. a typically night, but amped up with a purpose.  It was nice to not only put a little more effort into a weeknight meal for just the two of us, but the best part was really the conversations we had focused… Read more »

BCBG Hat, Luciana Tee Shirt, Ful Skirt, MICHAEL Michael Kors Booties

Well, it’s back to the work week for me today, happily rested after a 3-day weekend.  I crossed a few things off of my weekend agenda… The closet clean out/ seasonal switch is complete, enjoyed Sunday brunch, made one pumpkin dish, (mostly) cleaned the apartment, and attempted to finalize Italy plans (must finish that up tonight).  All in all, it was a great weekend. We decided to hold off on the pumpkin patch, as we like to drive up state… Read more »

Olive & Oak Plaid Top, Green Scuba Skirt, Green Gloves, Fur Scarf, MICHAEL Michael Kors Boots, Sage+Sparkle

Today’s look is one of my favorites for fall – ladylike and rugged at the same time.  I picked up this neoprene full scuba skirt, last Sunday at the LIC Flea on the way to hot yoga and seriously, I can’t stop wearing it! When paired with my new brown booties from MICHAEL Michael Kors and a plaid top from mimi&mo, this look is seriously perfect for fall. I particularly love the mix of textures here… Neoprene, fur, leather, and plaid… Read more »


I have been majorly slacking on my pumpkin recipes this year! For some reason, Fall seems to be headed in the same direction of Summer – passing by WAY to fast.  This weekend, I plan to put a stop to it.  Fall is my favorite season and I refuse to let it pass me by. After receiving a few emails wondering where my pumpkin recipes were for the season and after this weekend, I promise I will be back on… Read more »

afternoon tea2

I finally got around to shifting through the 100′s of photos I took while in Paris and London last Fall – yes, almost a year ago.  In my defense, I took over a thousand photos over the course of the week life has been moving full speed ahead ever since.  It was nice over the last couple of weeks though, to be able to look back and relive the memories – and I can’t wait to share a few of… Read more »

MICHAEL Michael Kors print dress, Over the Knee Suede Boots, J Crew Hat, old Navy Bucket Bag, Kendra Scott Necklace

I got these boots a few weeks ago from Michael Kors and have been waiting for the perfect moment to wear them ever since.  The over the knee style fits perfectly, even on my 5’3 frame – which isn’t always the case with a style like this.  What I love most about these boots, is that not only are the totally chic but they’re actually really comfortable too. I wore them yesterday to work… meaning walking to and from the… Read more »

I can’t tell you how excited I was yesterday, when I realized that we have Columbus Day off next Monday – which means a three-day weekend is on the horizon! Three day Fall weekends are the best!  I’m already plotting a trip to the pumpkin patch, along with some apple and pear picking and a delicious apple cider donut.  But alas, it is only Tuesday and first we have to get through the week before all this fun fall indulging… Read more »
