Shop By Color: Radiant Orchid

Shop By Color: Radiant Orchid

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 3 comments

Ever since lamenting about how Radiant Orchid is very definitely not my favorite color, I have to admit that it’s totally growing on me. Especially as we head into spring months, it feels like such an easy way to add a little pop of color to your home or to your outfit. If you’re like me and you’re not so sure about this color just yet, try wearing it as a cute cotton tank to freshen up your workout gear. …

What To Wear: Welcome Spring

What To Wear: Welcome Spring

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 5 comments

It’s the first day of spring – hooray! As excited as I am that winter is at least technically out the door, I have to admit that today isn’t feeling spring-like around these parts. It’s cold, gray and spitting snow. So I’ve resigned myself to the fact that spring dresses are still a ways off, but that doesn’t mean I can’t welcome spring with hopes of sunshine and pretty floral-printed scarves and cute flats in the meantime. If it’s feeling …

What To Wear: Surviving a Blizzard

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 0 comments

Well, guys. We survived! Three days and more than four feet of snow later, the first official blizzard of 2014 is in the books. I’ve spent much of today doing the post-blizzard clean up. Shoveling the walk and stairs, trying to unbury my car. All the good stuff. If you’ve never been through a real all-out blizzard, I have a few survival tips for you today. First up, have a sense of humor. Your plans are going to be derailed, …

Three Ways: Leather for Fall

Three Ways: Leather for Fall

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 0 comments

There’s no denying that leather is a huge trend in fashion this fall. (Or faux leather if you want to keep it animal-friendly!) I find myself loving the way a cool leather jacket can edge up an outfit, without putting off that biker vibe I know known of us are after. Pair it with a really feminine dress and a pair of boots and the look is just so fun. Or top tailored leather pants with a bright colorblock sweater …

Pretty Little Things That I Love vol. 43

Written by | filed under Fall, Fashion + Accessories | 2 comments

I can’t even believe I’m about to type this, but guess what? Starting next Friday, we’re talking holiday gift guides! Yeah. That happened insanely fast for me, too. I hear ya. Pretty much that means that I’m going to be cranking the Christmas music anytime now, because I’m that girl. But in the meantime, I figured it was worth indulging in one more dose of Friday window shopping before we turn all our attention to gift buying and stocking stuffing. …

What To Wear: Sweater Weather

What To Wear: Sweater Weather

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 2 comments

Guys, it’s officially sweater weather in Upstate New York this week! We went from zipping right along with incredibly unseasonable warmth and sunshine (I’m talking lows 80s as of just a couple weekends ago) to a heavy flurry of sleet and snowflakes yesterday. While there’s no snow sitting on the ground just yet, I’ve definitely been grabbing for sweaters and boots all week long. So in an ode to sweater weather, today we’re taking one awesome colorblock sweater (with the …

What to Wear to the Pumpkin Patch

What to Wear to the Pumpkin Patch

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 1 comment

I know I mentioned it earlier this week, but I seriously want to go to the pumpkin patch like it’s my job right now. We’re hoping to make it this weekend in between a flurry of football games and a birthday to celebrate tomorrow. We’ve been having the most amazing fall weather this week. Bright, sunny, temperatures in the high 60s. It’s the perfect time of year for my favorite fall fashion. Think great jeans and booties, oversized sweaters and …

Three Ways: Fall Dresses

Three Ways: Fall Dresses

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 0 comments

I make no secret of the fact that most of the time I’d rather be wearing yoga pants or dresses. At last count I had some obscene number of dresses in my closet, nearly all of which I don on the regular. Our fall so far has been really warm and sunny, but there’s still just enough of a chill in the air to necessitate layering things up before leaving the house most days. Chillier weather definitely doesn’t keep me …

Three Ways: Floral for Fall

Three Ways: Floral for Fall

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 2 comments

I’ve been crazy about floral prints for a while now. I’m so glad to see this trend of yore making a major comeback this year. And it’s pretty perfect for fall, if you ask me! Layer it up with a great blazer and cropped jeans, pair it with rich autumnal shades of orange, or add a touch of leopard and this look will transition seamlessly from summer to the cooler months. Personally I’m into bold, slightly oversized floral patterns for …

What To Wear: Going Camping

What To Wear: Going Camping

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 1 comment

We’re gearing up for our big annual summer camping trip and, guys, I am so excited! I can’t even tell you how much I need this trip right now. We’re talking three days stranded on an island, cooking over a fire, sleeping in tents and lazing away the hours swimming and strolling the woods. Ok ok, so we’re not really stranded considering everyone is there with boats, but I like to pretend we’re on a completely deserted island with no …
