happy friday!

I hope you are doing something fun and fabulous this weekend. I’m headed to a friend’s birthday dinner tonight and a dinner party the next night. I think I’ll be needing a little red dress to wear… Also – I updated the books page so check it out! Any fun weekend plans? image

gold elbow patches

Although elbow patches usually make me think of old professors or Ross from friends, I love this sweater from Zadig and Voltaire – one of my favorite French brands. The gold elbow patches are a fun surprise, and it’s cashmere – my favorite.  pull cici cashmere sweater, €298.00 Are you a fan of elbow patches?


Joanna over at A Cup of Jo is currently focusing on different topics pertaining to NYC. I couldn’t help but pass along her cute post about hailing a taxi, and I must say I laughed aloud at some parts. I love that she mentioned that New Yorkers do not make any facial expressions when hailing a taxi.  Liev…

go-to casual chic

This picture sums up my favorite go-to outfit. Hair high in a bun, tortoise cat eye sunglass, simple grey tee, and an asymmetrical black leather jacket. What more could you want?! Also, I’m sure that little chain over her shoulder leads to a lovely leather quilted bag – you know what I’m talking about here (2.55 Reissue anyone?)….

kendra scott

My friend Rebecca wore the Nyla Starburst earrings by Kendra Scott to her bridal luncheon this past weekend, and I can’t help but want them. Aren’t they gorgeous?

mix and match

It’s okay to mix and match. These pretty Mr.Kate ‘glow worm’ bangles are available in yellow, white and rose gold plate.  Do you mix and match your metals, or are you a strict silver or gold gal? bangles

head over heels

I think these Matt Bernson booties are a necessary purchase. Who’s with me? The only problem is which color. I am surprisingly leaning towards grey. I usually go straight for the black. Some of my other favorite fall choices are below. Basically I love them all: Matt Bernson site here.  What’s your favorite style? grey booties, black booties, leopard, gold flats, quilted, lace-up booties

I am on the hunt for rings that I can wear on my index finger. Inspired by the photo below, this moose ring could be just what I’m looking for.  moose ring, $39 inspiration Do you wear rings on your index finger? How do you feel about the moose?

lusting after: fall sweaters

Fall has finally hit NYC, and it is my favorite season. I think the city was meant for cooler weather with its walkable streets, cozy restaurants, and hot cups of coffee. Fall means light sweaters now required. I love to layer and cozy sweaters are just the beginning.  Donna Karan, $1595 Net-A-Porter This sweater is…
