Wearing Navy and White for Spring Fashion

7

I love the look of navy and white once warm weather hits. It’s just so crisp and clean, but remember to pick feminine pieces so you don’t look like a sailor. I love my white wide legged Banana Republic white jeans from ages ago. Wearing it with Banana Republic wedges makes my legs look long (which I need!). It still looks new and feels great, with a touch of stretch. I pair my white wide leg jeans with this LABEL+thread navy and white crochet top. The top is flowy at the top but fitted at the bottom which balances out the…

Wearing Mixed Media and Textures

2

We’ve finally found a great date night babysitter to replace the one who went off to college in Pennsylvania. Which now means that I get to “dress up” once in a while (Meaning I’m not wearing my jeans and Ugg boots)! We went to a fantastic restaurant near Union Square called Ichabod’s that my girlfriend took me to for my birthday. Of course, I had to make it our next stop on our date night. I was so tired of wearing sweater after sweater that I was excited to pull out LABEL+thread’s Mixed Media Sheer Trim Scoop Neck made with a super-chic silk…

How to Wear Black, White and Grey

2

Sometimes black, white and grey just nail it for me. It’s simple, sleek and very New York City. When I started out in the fashion industry, I was on the buying and merchandising team of a then Fortune 500 company. I was regularly in meetings with our president and I never understood why she always looked so put together. So effortless. So chic. I remembered when it finally clicked and I realized why she always looked that way. It’s because she wore black. All the time.  This is how to wear black, white and grey so you can lighten up an all-black…

Lightweight Spring Cashmere

0

This time of year can be so crazy in terms of what to wear. For example, two days ago it was 61 degrees; yesterday a nice and temperate 50 degrees;  and today – holy cow! It’s 23 degrees, with a windchill in the single digits. It’s all about layering and wearing unbulky sweaters and cardigans that don’t read “winter” yet still keep you warm. Enter LABEL+thread and their lightweight spring cashmere. LABEL+thread is a brand I work for — and wear — all the time. It’s a luxury knitwear brand owned by two ladies who design well-constructed sweaters, knit tops, cardigans and…

Fashionable Cottonelle at Strut: The Mom’s Fashion Show

1

This is a sponsored post. I attended Strut: The Fashionable Mom’s Show as a Cottonelle Ambassador. All opinions expressed are always mine. New York Fashion Week just ended and it was a treat for me to go; I had left the crazy, whirlwind life in the corporate fashion world a few years ago so it truly is fun to come back as a “guest”. This year, I attended Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week as a Cottonelle Blogger Ambassador at Strut: The Fashionable Mom’s Fashion held at Lincoln Center in New York City. I loved going back stage and feeling the…

Fashionable Sun Protection with Coolibar

1

I was given Coolibar samples for me and my family to try out for this post. All opinions expressed are mine. We are very big beach people. We enjoy being in the sun, sand and water. Even though we are very thorough with our sunscreen, we should take extra precaution when we are out in the sun. This year, we’ve taken a two trips that really warranted extra sun protection: a trip to Turks and Caicos and our yearly trip to the Jersey Shore.  Coolibar was gracious to outfit my family so that we had the highest protection under the…

Wearing Denim on Denim

3

I was not compensated for this post in any way. All opinions expressed are always mine. I am a denim girl through and through. When in doubt, a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt is always a staple look for me. In the summer, I love a monochromatic look of Denim on Denim. I just think it looks smart and city-chic, and a look that you just can’t go wrong with. I think any shade of denim can go together, as long as it doesn’t look too fussy. Old Navy Chambray Denim Pullover Shirt. Similar here | Lucky Brand Skinny Jeans.…

Wearing My Maxi Dress Because it’s Still Summer

6

It’s August, which means a lot of people are talking about Fall 2013 fashion. For me, I still want to hold on to that last bit of summer. We still have a summer vacation to be had and school doesn’t start for more than a month. So summer it is. Which means that easy (yet fashionable) summer dresses are a staple in my wardrobe. My silhouette is the Maxi Dress. My favorite is (of course) LABEL+thread’s summer dresses, which are all under $100. I am their Community Director, so I do get a discount on their apparel, but but…
