The First Day in Milan

There are so many reasons why I love Milan. I will be taking you on a tour of Milan from my trip there last month in the next few days. My first taste of Italy was Florence last year, so I had a high standard of what an Italian city should be like. Milan did not let me down. But, of course, there was pasta and lots of it. So no complaining either way. For now, here is a quick peek at my first day in this vibrant city.

Tones of the Seventies

October 6, 2017


Coach leather jacket
M Missoni pants
Isabel Marant Etoile bag
Frye mules

I wasn’t lying when I told you I got too caught up on That 70’s Show in the past. This Coach leather jacket was the foundation of this look, and if it was transformed into a song . . . it would be MY song of the season. A folksy, autumnal song of the blues. How nice does that sound? The subways still feel warm and humid; full of hot heat leftover from summer that gets my grumpy and tired. And then all of a sudden, I step outside and feel that cold rush. It’s a little surprise that never gets old. This season has already started on an awfully good foot. A trip to Milan. My birthday. A trip to the Catskills. It feels almost funny to have my feet on NYC soil because I get so used to being elsewhere. Yesterday, for example, I really wished I was still upstate in the Catskills sleeping in our forest bed. But really, at the end of the day, I feel oh so lucky to be able to come back home to my quiet little side of the mostly busy Dumbo neighborhood, and just melt into the simple furnishings of my home. Knowing that the rest of the city is as buzzing as can be, and that I have total and complete control over how I decide to spend my days. It’s a comforting feeling. Home is a comforting feeling. And it always has me. And I always have it. But in the fall, it especially feels like we were meant to have each other.

Pants That Keep Me Going

October 4, 2017


Ellie Mae blazer
Topshop mesh bodysuit
Tanya Taylor pants
Cafune purse
YSL shoes

A little bummed to be back in the city after two days upstate in the countryside, where my man and I were surrounded by forest and stars in our little wooden oasis. It was exactly the extended weekend we needed. The horrifying news of the shooting in Vegas was a dent that we couldn’t stop thinking about, but it did make me feel lucky to be somewhere safe, sound and away from the chaos with someone I loved very dearly. I hope that America, not to mention the world, no longer has to endure more pain and hate like what most of us have been feeling so much of lately. Take the time for your loved ones; keep them close physically and close in your hearts. The world is so unexpected today, and that is reason enough to not let anything be taken for granted. That is something very clear to me right now. 

Have a beautiful Wednesday. I hope you all look forward to the weekend and think of ways to spend your time wisely and magically with the ones you call family and true friends. Even if it’s just with yourself, that is very important, too. 

Just sharing a quick outfit here today to inspire you to put some fun pants on before running out the door. Pants like these keep me going and going, through both the tough and easy times.
