Ahh, sweater weather….one of my favorite times of the year, and Christmas is right around the corner!  There’s nothing cozier than an oversized chunky knit or softer than a cashmere turtleneck.  I had a lot of fun pulling pieces for … Continue reading

Today is already November 11th, and I can’t believe how quickly Fall has come.  Temperatures are still in the low 60s here in Manhattan, but there’s a cold front knocking on our door later this week, and I think I’m … Continue reading

Before moving to NYC, I don’t think I realized just how much there is to do in and around the city.  With over a year under my belt, I’ve been feeling much more “settled” here lately, and I think this can definitely … Continue reading

Celeb Style Crush – Reese Witherspoon

I have to admit, I’m pretty disappointed with myself for letting this much time pass between blog posts! Truth be told, summer usually means a busier social calendar. However, I do really enjoy blogging, so I’m making more of an effort to schedule writing time into my weekly routine. Thanks for sticking with me!

To unwind after work or to pass time during cardio at the gym, I love to read fashion magazines and blogs.  I love seeing how celebs and bloggers take on trends, then look to my closet for new outfit ideas. Reese Witherspoon is one of my absolute favorite actresses and style icons – she always looks polished and put-together, and her outfits are never too outrageous (I love Rihanna, but would I ever seriously wear one of her outfits?  Probably not.)  Simply put, I usually have serious outfit-envy when I see a picture of Ms. Witherspoon!

For today’s post, I scoured the internet for three of my personal favorite of Reese’s outfits, and put together looks based on them. Keep reading to see!

4 Ways to Wear Red, White & Blue on the 4th of July

Wow, I can’t believe how fast June has flown.  I apologize for how long it’s taken me to post again…with work, day trips to the beach, and hiking upstate, I’ve been pretty booked!  And now my 2nd favorite holiday is only a week away.  I love the 4th for many reasons – warm weather, yummy BBQs, family get-togethers, fireworks, and usually a concert or two (Summerfest and Country USA are taking place in Wisconsin this week).  Next Wednesday I’m flying home to Milwaukee to spend a long weekend with mia familia, and I’m so excited to see them as well as catch up with some high school friends!

On today’s post, I’ve pulled together four very different looks for various 4th of July occasions.  Let me know which is your favorite!!

Monogram Madness!

I hope your summer is off to a great start!  I’ve been busy this past week, juggling work, friends and gym-time.  I went to the Belmont Stakes races yesterday – what an awesome experience!  I loved witnessing race-day fashion firsthand, and had fun keeping track of the various horses I placed bets on – too bad I didn’t win big!  I wore this floral J. Crew dress featured on a previous post, with Jack Rogers wedges, pearls and sunnies, and a big hat of course!

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of monograms – there’s something chic about putting your personal spin on anything from tote bags to pillows.  (Not to mention should you misplace your monogrammed phone case, no one else can claim it!)  Today I thought I’d share my favorite monogrammed pieces, as well as a few I have my eye on!!
