Black and White Chic

Because I work from home, I generally don’t have to worry about what I wear during the day. (It’s the best.) I still go into the city a couple of times a week for meetings. I also try to cut down on the number of times I have to take the train, so I pack my city days with back-to-back meetings and try to squeeze in a dinner or lunch with a friend too. Finding something to wear that can take me through the whole day all over the city can be a tiny bit of a challenge, especially when I would prefer just to wear a sweater and jeans on a cold day.

My friend Nicole gave me the book when she was in town…

Kate Spade Scallops

I am obsessed with this outfit. It’s not something I could feasibly wear as an everyday look, but I kind of wish I could. It feels like I can conquer the world in the matching tweed. Luckily each of the pieces can be mixed and matched with my existing wardrobe to create different options that I can wear more frequently– like the cropped jacket with a pair of black pants. Every year my love for kate spade new york grows a little bit more, and these scallops have taken that love to a new level.

What Knowing Yourself Actually Means

I am so obsessed with this post from Maxie. I honestly go through intense periods of “finding myself” where I do (or try to do!) everything Max has laid out here. I wish I had known to do it much, much sooner in life, though. It’s an important practice to get yourself in the habit…

Trench Weather

I know it’s still February– and I know we will definitely have more snow in our future– but this weekend is the springiest weather ever. I’m talking perfect sixty-degree pure sunshine days. The birds are non-stop chirping outside, and I can’t stop smiling.
