It’s Always Sunny In Miami


In the past couple of weeks, I’ve been lucky enough to take a couple weekend trips back down South to soak up some sunshine and escape the cold and stress of the city. My first stop? Miami! To be honest, this trip had me seeing a different side of the sunshine state and the flavorful city down South. It’s funny since I’m actually from Florida, but the weekend exposed me to a new view of my home state.


First of all, Miami has grown so much in recent years. Jason and I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton in Coconut Grove, where we enjoyed relaxing afternoons by the pool. But in the evenings, we were close enough to hit South Beach, The Design District, and enjoy the city’s new architecture, restaurants, and shopping. We ate at our favorite modern Italian restaurant, Cecconi’s, at Soho Beach House and enjoyed a “Letters to Andy Warhol” exhibit during our last night in Florida. It was the perfect evening and perfect trip!


We also welcomed the escape from New York, because I was able to break out some summer-wear and put my over-the-knee boots away in favor of sexy sandals. During the day, I basically LIVED in this new black off-the-shoulder dress with a smocked top. The a-line cut made it super comfortable, while bare shoulders and bell sleeves kept it undeniably on-trend. I wore the dress with strappy nude sandals, and 70’s inspired details including my “Faye” bag and favorite hoop necklace. The fabric is so easy and breezy, I also threw it on over my swimsuit when heading to the pool the next day! The best part? The dress is only $59!! Can you believe it? I love that I can dress this up for a summertime evening event with some tall strappy sandals – or down with oversized sunnies and gladiators. This one is bound to be a staple in my closet once the weather gets warm again in NYC. Until then….we’ll always have Miami.

A Walk In The Park



On a perfectly cool and crisp morning, Jason and I decided to head out for a walk in Central Park before the weekend crowd usually hits. Admittedly, this is about as naturey as I’ll get if there’s not an ocean around – but the fresh air and autumn leaves were absolutely gorgeous. Even I had to give in to the splendor of nature on that morning.


We walked hand-in-hand, sipped lattes from our go-to coffee shop (shout-out to REX) and shared stories from the week. Despite sounding cliché, it was really nice to take a break from the noise and crowd of the city and just chill. Oh, speaking of chill… Did I mention that it has gotten really cold really fast. But I’m not complaining, the chilly weather gave me an excuse to get a new coat! My new black Rag & Bone beauty is a long and tailored peacoat with military-inspired shoulder epaulettes. I call it my Severus Snape coat… because I feel a tad bit dark and villainous in it. I also love that it feels a bit more masculine than my other coats.


For this morning’s stroll, I paired my coat with a simple long-sleeved Theory dress. Since it’s a bit on the short side, I layered it under my favorite shawl-collared, olive silk vest. To add some drama and polish, I finished my look with my AllLegs boots, two gold necklaces, and my Chanel boy bag. I love the autumnal feel of this olive and black pairing, and how each piece can be mixed and matched so easily. I feel like there are infinite possibilities with all of these favorites! I’ve already thrown my coat over so many Fall outfits and instantly feel put-together. Stay tuned on how I wear it next!

Pre-Fall Musings



Even though we’re in the heart of Summer, I can’t help but look forward to Fall. I’m starting to see new colors like bordeaux, forest green, and navy fill my favorite stores, and I’m getting excited at the prospect of cooler weather, sweaters without the ‘sweat’, and of course – boots! Even though Fall isn’t here just yet, I’ve picked a couple transitional pieces that can take you from season to season with ease.


1. Free People. The Western trend has been big this year, especially this belt seen on hollywood it-girls like Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez. While I usually don’t have celeb-envy, I have to say that I love this adjustable, statement belt. I can see myself wearing it around a shirtdress, or pairing it with one of my graphic tees and a leather jacket in the fall. I also love the navy leather and rose gold buckles – I think it’s just a little bit more unique!


2. Zara.  Like I keep saying, give me a dramatic sleeve all day, every day. This powder blue Zara top is great for work with white jeans in the Summer months, or a dark jean and boot as the weather cools down.


3. Maje.  This skirt looks even more amazing in person. The scarlet color and the fringe are unstoppable.


4. Equipment.  I feel like this sweater is so playful with its all-over star print. But somehow, it doesn’t seem overwhelming. The neutral colors and the uber-soft cashmere will make this a cozy addition to my Fall wardrobe.


5. Rag & Bone.  I haven’t tried these in person, but something tells me these lace-up Rag & Bone jeans will be amazing! They remind me of a modernized version of the lace-up jeans that I owned in middled-school.


6. Chanel.  Gel manicures are an addiction of mine. Nothing compares to the high-shine you get with a great gel polish. I’m excited to try this Chanel topcoat which boasts the benefits of the gel manicure without the UV light.


7. Alexander Wang.  The must-haves boots! Ok, so I actually bought these already because I loved them so much. I’m obsessed with the rich brown suede, and the metallic cut-out in the heel. I can’t wait to wear these with both jeans and dresses in the Fall!


8. Jennifer Zeuner.  I’m really feeling this dainty, but oversized gold necklace. The shape instantly inspires thoughts of the 70’s and could easily glamorize any outfit. Plus, it even has a tiny stone inlaid that’s hidden to the naked eye!
