Easy Does It.


Sometimes, easy is best.  This outfit is a go to when I have nothing to wear.  Light on top, dark on bottom.  The blazer was a Spring purchase last year but I’ve surprised myself with how much I wear it all year long.  I added the fedora that I picked up at Goorin Brothers during the holidays {still just so happy to have found a few great hats that fit my big old head!}  Also, my cute little pouch is now half off… I am so glad that Rebecca Minkoff has started selling her monogrammed pouches, especially because you all always asked where I got this version.

Happy Monday!  My weekend was really nice.  Pretty low key {lots of naps were taken} but sometimes that is just what you need.

PS – Today marks eight years of living in New York for me.  Kind of crazy!  When I first moved here, the plan was to stay for a year or two to get the career experience.  Funny how plans change.

  9. It’s amazing how much of a time warp living in NYC is. I’ve been in Manhattan for over 7 and in Hoboken a year, nuts I tell you!

  11. I love that hat!! Great look and the lip color is divine. Crazy that you’ve been in New York for 8 years when you thought it would be a short stay. Life has funny ways of changing, doesn’t it? Have a great Monday!
