Today’s look features this Red Valentino striped dress.
I actually shot this look back in April when the trees were still bare and the grass had yet returned to green. The weather just happened to be gorgeous and warm and I had this beautiful dress. So I thought, why not take a few photos. Best news yet, the dress is now 50% off. Or you can get 45% off and free shipping here. See, sometimes it saves to wait!

Today’s post is short and sweet. I apologize that it isn’t my typical trend report or lookbook, but don’t you worry! I am in the process of writing up a ton of new and fun posts for you, so stay tuned for that. I am also in the process of adding new discussion pieces, and revamping how this blog will work! I am beyond thrilled and excited to add those pieces into the blog soon. I really think you are going to enjoy them.
I can’t believe Christmas and my birthday are in a few short weeks! It didn’t feel real until I went to Rockefeller last weekend and saw the Tree sparkling and hundreds of tourists shopping Fifth Avenue. I love this time of the year and how festive everyone gets!
Speaking of festive, holiday parties have officially begun. What you wear to these types of parties is up to you, but I love staying warm and comfy! This look was extremely toasty with the faux leather skirt and cashmere off the shoulder. The top was super comfy and cozy as well. It is always a winner when I can look dressed up but feel super comfortable. This look is perfect to go from the office to holiday happy hour or an evening holiday event.
If you live in New York City or visiting, you must check out Rolf’s Bar & Restaurant. It is extremely festive inside and fun to snap photos! Their homey pub puts me in the holiday spirits immediately!
In the comments, let me know what your holiday look is and what you wear to parties!
I am loving the latest sweater trend this season- long cardigan sweaters. It feels like you are wearing a big hug. Plus it looks super chic and it’s an easy way to dress up a casual look.
This sweater is from Gap (PS they are having 40% off sweaters sale). I found the length perfect and the thickness exactly what I wanted. Something comfy and warm that if I am not wearing a coat, I will still be okay. Of course, once winter hits I can double up with a long outer coat.
I just found the best faux fur jacket. So good that I’ve literally fooled friends. People thought I stole the coat out of my mom’s closet, but I just snagged it from Zara. It feels so soft and lush and the color is perfect with a mix of black and dark brown. I am obsessed with the leather trim and buttons that run down the front. It is very 70s inspired.
When I saw the coat in the stores, I did that one thing I swore I would never do… tried it on right in the middle of where everyone was shopping. I dropped my bags and slipped the faux fur jacket off the hanger and onto my shoulders. I loved it from the first moment I put it on. I went up one size because it was a lot smaller in the shoulders and arms than Zara’s usual pieces. I also wanted to be able to layer underneath for added warmth. By going up a size I am more comfortable and have more room for extra layers.
