ditch your jeans – i’m saying YES to dresses this season!
as soon as the ‘kinder’ weather hits, i start wearing dresses. as often as utterly possible. because dresses are comfortable…. easy to wear… and obviously because they’re super cute. it’s the easiest way for me to express myself without putting a ton of thought into my look – because let’s be real – life gets crazy, and sometimes your wardrobe gets thrown onto the back burner. in this entry, i’m discussing ways that basic casual day-dresses can elevate your look with little thought!

An Ode To Empire Waist
Real talk: If you’ve been watching my Insta Stories lately, I’ve mentioned (more than once) that since moving to the ‘burbs I’ve put on some serious pounds. (Somewhere between 10 and 12…. but who’s counting, right? Oh yeah…. I AM….) I’m clearly a stress eater, and when the going gets tough, I get the munchies. Packing, moving, acclimating, commuting…. getting used to a new schedule and way of life… using my new kitchen for Taco Night… these are all factors that led me to this uncomfortable state, and as of May 1st I’ve been on an epic cleanse to get back to where I felt ‘bomb dot com’. That being said, I recently stumbled upon a cross-back dress with an empire waist that I bought in two colors because it was just THAT flattering (even on my current frame). I realized I never talk about empire waist… probably because I don’t wear it all that often… but it’s a silhouette we ALL should have stashed in our wardrobe for the inevitable day when we feel like we’ve gotta let it all out and cover it all up at the same time. I KNOW you know exactly what I’m talking about. Continue reading “An Ode To Empire Waist”

new york really takes a beating during the winter. in what feels like the sixth straight month of cold, bitter weather… i think we’ve all thrown in the towel and have agreed to collectively freeze in spring clothing until mother nature decides she’s ready to join us… so this next look that i’m featuring pairs a (new) denim shift dress with some old accessories that help to keep this look transitional and functional (enough) for our current temperature situation. if you’re reading from a region that’s already warmed up significantly… forget everything i’m about to say, throw this dress on with your favorite sandals, and call it a day. but if you’re here in the tri-state… read on for some simple tips to mid-april-warmth.

lets call a chartreuse
i’m a born & bred jersey girl with lifelong roots in nyc and i try to steer clear of tourist attractions 10 months out of the year, but there’s just something about the holiday season in manhattan that has me flocking to all the best sights – the bryant park winter market, the rockefeller center christmas tree, the ice rink, and of course the ‘top of the rock’ exhibit! so last weekend i took to one of my favorite exhibits on the coldest day of the year, bundled in some new winter gear that i’m super psyched to be featuring.
