Celebrating Father’s Day in Style with Chaps Brand at Kohl’s

2

 Snuggles with Daddy are always the best… We like to celebrate our Hallmark holidays casual, but we also want to look nice and crisp. For this Father’s Day, Chaps was gracious enough to give The Hubby a new Father’s Day outfit to celebrate being a great Dad. Michael kept it simple and classic by choosing Chaps’ Classic Fit Gingham-Checked Button Down Shirt in Blue and the Flat-Front Shorts in Blue Fish.  These styles are easy pieces that can go with anything in his closet. That’s what I love about Chaps: it’s value-packed, easy, wearable classic styles that are timeless. …so are rides on Daddy’s…

Looking Chic in Neutrals

8

Living in New York City means that I wear neutrals. And a lot of them. When the warm weather hits, I do lighten up—but I still do pack on the neutrals. It’s easy for a busy mom like me. I know that I can pull out a top, cardi, a pair of pants and some accessories and know that I look good and put together.

What I Wore to Type A Conference Philadelphia #OOTD

8

Last week, I went to Type A Conference in Philadelphia (hashtag #TypeACon) with Lisa from Mom a la Mode. Going to any type of conference is always a fashion conundrum. You want to look stylish, yet you need to be comfortable and ready for those freezing cold conference rooms. Since Lisa and I were waking up at the crack of dawn to catch an Amtrak train to the conference, I had to be super-comfortable, too. So, this is what I wore. I decided on my favorite knitwear company, LABEL+thread. (Disclosure: They are one of my clients – but I proudly…

For most New Yorkers, including me, our closets are filled with blacks, greys, browns, whites and every shade of neutral in between. But there comes a time when you just have to break away from the earth-tone pack, shake out the winter grey doldrums and perk up with some spring brights. Luckily, Chaps’ spring collection is full of colors that will help brighten up your wardrobe. My picks for the season? Colored Denim. Chaps’ spring collection has a great fitting and slimming  capri length colored denim that comes in the perfect sorbet hues. There is a good amount of stretch which…

I saw these Thursday Friday bags at Lucky Shops last Fall and I fell in love. They were fun, stylish and practical – all the three things I love in a bag…and fashion for that matter! Loving my Moto Together Bag, don’t you?? As you know, I’m on a budget, so these Thursday Friday bags let me in on some of the obsession we all have for expensive luxury bags without having to spend the big bucks because its on an easy, accessible cotton canvas tote which is printed on all sides (including the bottom!) with images of an exclusive…

Flowy Top + Skinny Jeans = Professional Comfortable Fashion

1

Last Wednesday was a whirlwind. I had to go to a meeting, to an event with Vanessa Lachey, Robert Verdi and then to a Social Media Week conference. So, I had to look sharp, yet comfortable because I had to commute and go cross-town via the subway. I chose a “look” that I choose to call “Professional Comfortable”, but brought in new pieces to signal a bit of change. I am so done wearing heavy winter clothes, so I opted to wear a silky, textured short sleeve blouse with my skinny jeans, and a new fun purse from the fun brand,…

Rebecca Taylor Fall/Winter 2013 Collection #NYFW

10

Sometimes it pays having been part of the fashion industry for 15 years. This is one of those times. My old co-worker and supervisor invited me to the Rebecca Taylor Fall/Winter 2013 show at Highline Studios in New York City’s Meatpacking District. The show was feminine with an edge, beautifully understated, and the best part? Wearable. There was a moto-edge with leather, exposed zippers, and studs; but all balanced with subtle feminine touches like peplums, lace, pleats and fabrics that move with the body. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the collection:   To see the finale, check…

Celebrating my 40th Birthday with a Nod to my Fashion Past

12

This weekend, I celebrated my 40th Birthday with an intimate dinner with 18 of my closest friends, most of whom I’ve had the pleasure of twenty to thirty-five years worth of friendship. I was struggling with what to wear. I wanted to dress up, but be comfortable. I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money simply because it was my 40th. I came up with the perfect outfit: I’d wear pieces that celebrated me but also celebrated my heritage and my family. When my grandmother died several years ago, I was put to the task of cleaning out…

Staying Warm with LABEL+thread Infinity Scarves

12

I know that the fashion industry is in full-on Spring mode, but the reality is that it’s been under 26 degrees in New York City for the past week. And we are all over it. Right? Aren’t you? There’s only so much you can do to look cute and chic while temperatures are plummeting. When I’m dropping the girls off at school, and going to work, or going out for a GNO, you want to look cute and chic, but you just HAVE to stay warm. How do you do it? Lucky for me, I work with the ladies from…

How to Glam it Up when the Temperature Goes Down

1

Getting Glam when it is cold out can be very tricky especially living in New York City. In this freezing weather, you have to take into account if you’ll be walking, taking the subway, and/or a cab — or all of the above. Last Friday, we went to a classical music concert at Princeton University’s Richardson Hall. Luckily, we rented a car to get there, but we still had to park the car, walk to the restaurant and then to the concert hall. And last Friday, was FRIGID, and I was sh-sh-shivering. So, what to wear?  You know I’m on…

Bean’s Solar Emergency Weather Radio with Hand Crank: We have the version from 2001, but we didn’t use it until Hurricane Sandy, and boy were we lucky to have it. Without this hand-crank radio, we would not have had any idea what was going on during the time we had no electricity. We were…
