All I can say here is, I apologize if my pale legs blind you.  I think it’s pretty obvious that I could use a day or two outside!

My Style | A Few of My Favorite Things

Someone recently asked me if I had some favorite pieces in my closet.  And while, I pretty much love everything in my closet, I took a look and pulled a few of my favorite things.  Here are just a few.  And please feel free to comment and tell me what your favorite pieces are in your closet.


1.  This is my grandmother’s mink stole.  She gave it to me a while ago and I cherish it.

2.  I will aways love my very first pair of Louboutins.  They’re timeless and super comfortable.  But what I love most is Greg surprised me with them  for Christmas a few years ago.  As you can see, they’ve gotten some wear!


3.  This Chanel bag was my 10 year wedding anniversary gift from Greg.  I picked it out through email while on vacation in Aruba.  I typically wouldn’t make such a big purchase without seeing it in person, but I knew “she” was mine at first sight.

4.  I bought this necklace from Net-a-porter a few years ago.  And while I felt a bit guilty about the price tag, I have definitly gotten my ROI on this piece.  It was a smart purchase because the colors are so neutral that I can wear it with pretty much anything.  And I do!

5.  As you know, I tend to monogram a lot of my clothing…bathing suits, shorts, jeans, and tops.  Here is a stack of sweaters and tees I have monogrammed.  I couldn’t choose because I love them all!

6.  I will admit, this piece sits in my closets for a good part of the year, but I still love it.  This isn’t your every day jacket, however when I wear it I feel chic and hip and feminine.  I love wearing this with a white tee and destroyed jeans.

7.  And last but not least is this little number.  I just purchased this baseball tee and I can’t wait to wear it.  I do wish I sized down because it’s a bit oversized, however I will make it work!

Outfit | The Colored Chino

It’s always a great idea to own a few pair of chinos.  Whether they’re the classic khaki chino, an army green pair or the leap a faith….the colored chino.  You can do just about anything with the chino pant, but I find myself usually pairing mine (regardless of the color) with a heel (or wedge) and a feminine top, because the last thing I want is to walk out of the house looking like Greg and I planned our outfits.

So, if it’s a boyfriend chino, pair it with a more fitted top or sweater.  If it’s a skinny chino, perhaps go with a long cardigan, and a great fitting tee underneath.
