Guys, I am loving everything metallic right now. I mean, I always love everything metallic, which I’m pretty sure you’ve figured out by now. But with the holidays on the way, every little bit of sparkle captures my eye. I am loving these pretty, glittery things in particular right now. I mean, hello, how gorgeous are these heels?

Can you seriously believe that Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away? I have no idea where 2012 has gone! But I’m not complaining because I just love this time of year. For Thanksgiving I like to dress up a bit, but keep it comfy. (Because let’s face it. We all like to be comfy when we’re sneaking a second slice of pie!) Our Thanksgiving this year is going to involve nearly 20 people, a whole bunch of kids, loads …

Not surprisingly, with fall here I’m all about cozying up for the colder months. I recently picked up a few new wool blankets that have been in heavy rotation in recent weeks and a new pair of boots is next on my fall must-have list. I’m also loving everything copper! The color is warm, inviting and completely timeless. So this week, it’s all about the cozy and the copper and I’m loving every little bit.

I don’t know what it is about fall, but lately I find myself online window shopping way more than usual. I think it’s some sort of nesting instinct that comes with chillier weather. It becomes all about cooking, baking, and layering the house with cozy textiles and flickering candlelight. Recently I find that I am loving moody metallics, teak brown, and sleek earthy pieces that are simple in their easy beauty. Take this door mat from the recently launched Zara …

What To Wear: Apple Picking

What To Wear: Apple Picking

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 4 comments

Here in the Northeast, apple picking is one of the ultimate fall pastimes. While apple season is dwindling now in early October, I still can’t get enough of the fresh apple cider and apple cider donuts you find everywhere this time of year. On a crisp fall morning there’s nothing I love more than heading out for a few hours wandering the orchards, stowing the perfect apples for snacking and making pies in a big tote bag. The perfect outfit …

This week I’ve been loving black and gold. It’s just a timeless pairing and always looks so incredibly chic. While far outside of my budget, I have to be honest and admit I’m totally loving these ridiculously funny 24k gold mustache tumblers. They would make such a fun and humorous addition to any cocktail party. Seriously. You know you want them, too. I personally love using gold as a neutral. You can work it into any outfit or decor and …

It’s that time of year again, folks! Crisp, fall air is moving in and it’s officially time to start thinking about layering up for the colder months. To me this is the perfect uniform of sorts for fall. A great pair of boots, a colorful scarf, a cozy sweater and coffee always in hand. Of course these adorable little button earrings don’t hurt either. While I am already kind of regretting that summer is behind us, I have to say …

I am loving chic, equestrian-inspired accessories for fall this year. Something about the mix of leather and bright gold and brass detailing makes the look so timeless while still making a fun fashion statement. Of course we all know that riding boots are a staple for me throughout the fall and winter months, and this year I’m definitely in the market for a new pair. And, hello, how pretty are these ones? What I love about this look is that …

Hey, gang! Popping in a little late today, but I’ve been traveling and lost most of yesterday in the Newark airport and today I’m settling in for a fun week in Charleston with my pals at Delphine. Stay tuned here and on Instagram (@cydconverse) for little snippets of my travels. But in the meantime, let’s chat fashion, shall we? You know you want to. As we transition into fall, it’s still hot and stuffy so I’m not quite ready for …

When I first hit that golden age where all of my friends were getting engaged and buying up bridal magazines quicker than I ever knew possible, time and again I found myself ogling the large glossy photos of Tacori rings that seemed to grace all the magazine. Hands down, they were the most gorgeous bits of glitter that I’d …
