trend: menswear jackets

December 9, 2015

i have had my eye on long, cozy menswear jackets for awhile now but i finally pulled the trigger and decided that i actually need one.  they are so chic and timeless and complete any look - dressy or casual. my favorite way to wear mine is over my shoulders with distressed jeans, a white button down and pumps. here are a few of my favorites in all price ranges. xx

gift guide for the fitness fanatic

December 3, 2015

i had such a hard time narrowing down all of my favorite styles for this one!! zara terez is killing it (yes, those are gold glitter workout pants and i have the skyline ones - they are my favorite) and private party obviously has the best tees (on fleek is in my regular vocabulary and i basically live off of avocado toast). i included a few additional things below the picture if you scroll through because i couldn't leave them out!! also, for any of you interested in my previous gift guides, they can be found by clicking here. enjoy. xx

gift guide for the jet setter

November 19, 2015

shop: one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten

i am so excited to be launching my first gift guide of the holiday season!! this is my absolute favorite time of year - the lights and shows in new york city, sitting by the fireplace drinking wine hot cocoa, baking cookies, going to christmas parties, watching your favorite movies on repeat, just being with family - it doesn't get better in my book. but my absolute favorite part is giving the gifts. i pick out my favorite wrapping paper and ribbon and i'm lucky if it lasts five minutes let alone to christmas day because i always get so excited for everyone to open them! but i also know that gift giving can be a bit stressful, so i hope to alleviate that feeling for you. this first one is for all of your friends that like to travel - which is everyone??? right? links to product are above - happy shopping!


little black dresses

November 17, 2015

with the holidays just around the corner (i can't believe i'm already saying that!) and lots of parties to go to, i started picking out some outfit options - aka some little black dresses. i love them! i love a good, chic, black dress with a really good pump during the holidays (and always).  they can be as simple as you want, or as dramatic as you want - you just can't go wrong. throw on a red lip and a piece of statement jewelry and you're done. here are my favorites!

shop: one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

fall & plaid & flares

laurel & wolf

November 9, 2015

i've been spending so much time dreaming about interior design lately. im so inspired by different designs and pieces of furniture, and i finally think i know what i prefer - a mix between scandinavian, industrial, mid century modern & traditional, ha! its almost like new york meets los angeles meets paris. but really i think its possible, take a scroll through my "jolie casa" pinterest board, you'll get what i mean.

anyway, i don't know what it is but i am itching to decorate my own house more than ever! too bad that day is like, not even close to present day. #thankyounewyorkcity. but, i did come across laurel & wolf and it is seriously the best secret weapon for anyone that wants to decorate a house, or even just a room, on a budget. you take a quiz to sum up your style, they charge you a one time fee of $299 (amaaaazing) and from there you submit pictures of your current space and a design brief and then you are matched with an interior designer. i am dying to try it - has anyone else tried it?

also, on the subject of home, has anyone seen  the new home collection from kate spade new york? in love with everything, but here are a few of my favorites.


boot weather

November 5, 2015

the weather has been so amazing in nyc the past couple of weeks, but i know in the blink of an eye it will be time to pull out all of my cold weather necessities. boo. but, ive seen so many good boots lately - here are a few of them. which ones do i get? 

interior inspo

November 3, 2015

i am definitely an interior junky.  i could look at pictures of homes all day long, and when i was little, my mom and i used to go explore homes for sale just to see what different people's homes looked like. it was my favorite!! i redo my room all the time, but living in a 500 square foot apartment in nyc is basically torture.  also i love flowers and plants and they would die if i tried to keep them alive. note to self - never move in an apartment that doesn't have an abundant amount of natural light, and don't listen to your broker when he says "oh, its just the time of day, it gets plenty of natural light". bulllllshit. anyway, when i came across this house on domino, i had to share. i am so obsessed with it.  the open air, the white, the plants, the beachy vibes, the textiles - its perfection. and makes me want to move to california…

here are links to a few of the amazing pieces:

pyramid dining side chair in white (the ones shown in the kitchen)
sheepskin throw (i looooove this thing. shown on the kitchen chairs)
peekaboo acrylic coffee table (i have this in my apt now and will have it forever!)
south seas bar cart (gorg, obvi)
threshold bar cart in gold (a less expensive, equally chic version)
hanging rattan chair (what i would do to have a spot for this …)
