Pink Silk Blazer

I just got back from the Hamptons and I feel so refreshed after 2 days at the beach. I’ll be uploading my new favorite spots to my Travel App and links to everything I wore on Liketoknow.it. I packed these fun white lace up heels that I ordered a few weeks ago and wore them with this silk wrap dress from Reformation. I love the way white lace heels look with everything from dresses to jeans and a white T. This outfit has been my go-to look for showroom and PR meetings. This pink blazer is one of the only pink items I own – and I absolutely love it. It’s bright and cheery for spring/summer and looks polished but not overly formal. I also love this pink blazer and this one. This one is a splurge but gorgeous right?! These jeans are from Abercrombie and only $44. They have such a great selection of denim and it’s all insanely affordable. The washes and distressed details are on point. I’ll never tire of denim + a classic blazer together. It’s pretty much my uniform in the city during the week. I wore this white blazer with jeans last week, and this houndstooth blazer with black jeans the week prior.

A White Pencil Skirt

I bought this white pencil skirt a few months ago and it’s quickly become my go-to piece when I need to throw on something for a meeting, formal brunch or event. It’s such a flattering item and can be paired with a button down like I did here, a sweater, a bodysuit, or a flowy silk blouse. I love the subtle button details down the side. It’s sadly sold out, but this one and this one are almost identical and super reasonable. I tied this blue and white stripe button down up to make the look more playful and less corporate. I love a classic button down and tying it at the waist completely changes the vibe. A few other button downs I have my eye on are this one, this one and this one. Rails makes such great button downs. I have a ton of their plaid shirts and always pair them with my Cuyana sweatpants on the weekends. I had the best weekend celebrating my sister at her bridal shower. We rented a room at Cecconi’s in Dumbo and had 20 of her friends and family gather for a beautiful afternoon! The food, service, weather, and decor was IMPECCABLE. I can’t recommend it enough if you’re looking for a new, fun brunch spot – or event space! I’m gearing up for my sister’s bachelorette party next month and getting so excited about all of the activities and goodie bags. I’ll be doing a full blog post on the prep and tips on how to plan one. If you have any games or goodies you recommend I would love to hear them!

Dressed up Jeans and a White T

Blue jeans and a white T. Such a classic, basic, and simple combo that always works. I’ve been resorting back to the staple pieces in my closet since moving back to NYC. It feels so good to get back to basics and not be overthinking my outfits. I’ve been wearing things that are 100% fuss free… I threw on my trusty Mango blazer (they really do make the best blazers) for a lunch meeting at Laduree and these beautiful Sarah Flint heels. Sarah’s shoes are iconic and she designs them with beauty AND function in mind. They have a thick, padded sole and buttery soft leather straps that make walking in them a breeeeeze. ——— On a personal note, I’ve been a little more silent on the blog this week because I’ve had a lot on my plate – both good and bad. The good – and there was a lot of good! – was my housewarming party, book launch party, family + friends coming in town and my sister’s bridal shower. The bad – I found out a friend and confidante who had a really positive impact on my life passed away far too soon. She was only 37 years old. I’m shocked and still fully processing her death. When things like this happen, it just reminds us how short life really is – and how important it is to be as present and grateful as possible. I learned so much from this person and I know she would want me to share some of that insight with the world. When I’m ready, I absolutely will <3

A Classic Houndstooth Blazer

I recently bought this houndstooth blazer, which FYI just went on sale, and it has quickly become my go-to blazer to wear during the week. It’s a longer cut, with a structured shoulder and slim fit back so it elongates your entire figure. The subtle, classic houndstooth pattern along with big gold buttons makes this an iconic piece that I know I’ll be wearing in 10 – even 20 years from now. It also comes in this dreamy crisp white color. The houndstooth blazer comes from one of my favorite brands; ALC. I listened to the Second Life podcast with the founder of ALC, and it made me fall even more in love with the brand. I’ve been craving a brand like ALC for years. It’s classic and sophisticated, but also modern and feminine with just the right amount of edge. The materials she uses are all insanely high quality, and the attention to detail in every garment is obvious. Few designers today get the fit, pattern, color, and details right – but ALC does it time and time again. Speaking of podcasts, I’m SO addicted to them! I listen to them while I’m getting ready for the day, doing my hair + makeup, cooking, cleaning, or walking around the city. They always teach me something, or make me think more in depth about a topic I wasn’t familiar with before. Some of my favorite podcasts are; Second Life by Hilary Kerr, The Skinny Confidential by Lauryn Evarts, Goop by Gwyneth Paltrow, Bad on Paper by Grace Atwood, and The Skimm by Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin. Such an incredible and inspiring group of women!!! The founders of The Skimm are also in the book that I was recently featured in called; Earn It. I am so happy to share it’s already a BESTSELLER and encourage you to order a copy if you haven’t already. It’s jam packed full of stories and tips from women doing amazing things in their field. It really gives you an in-depth look at what it takes to succeed in the workplace today. The outfit I’m wearing here could easily be worn to work or drinks.You would never even have to change your shoes. I’ve said it before, but these heels that are from WALMART – YEP Walmart – are under $35 – and SOOOO comfortable. You’d never even be able to tell that they’re that inexpensive! I walk all over the city in them, stand in them for hours, and love that I don’t have to worry about them getting a little scuffed up or dirty. I’m tempted to order them in nude now, especially since summer is coming!
