Weekend Reading.

Hello (or Hej, for that matter) from Copenhagen! My friend Stanley and I arrived on Thursday at noon (we took the red-eye from JFK) and it’s been pretty much non-stop since our arrival! I will of course have a blog post up soon about my time spent here and all of my recommendations, but I’ve been blown away by how clean the city is, how nice everyone is, and all of the bikes! (I swear, there are more bicycles here than cars, and I just love that.) Also, for the record: everyone here is very tall, and very good looking. The next stop is Belfast – I leave this afternoon and will be staying with my bff Aly and her family for the next four nights.  Then it’s London (with Aly), then Paris (by myself)… ahhh… what a whirlwind! I hope you had a great week and have fun weekend plans. I know New York has been cold and snowy – seems like the perfect excuse to venture upstate or stay in with a pile of books and a big mug of tea. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab! xo

While I missed the snow storm, I loved these photos. New York really was a snow globe!

We’ve been talking (at length) about protecting your skin in the winter… but what about your hair!? That needs hydrating too!

J’adore the oversized paisley print on this scarf.

Oh em gee – these Alberta Ferretti Days of the Week Sweaters are basically everything.

What role should fashion media take when covering politics? Hint: I wholeheartedly agree.

Loving the subtle lips motif on this sweater.

Another good reason to exercise.


I am so, so excited for my friend Julia and her big news!!!

Now I’m curious about bee pollen – anyone else add this to their smoothies?

J.Crew is having a big sale. Prior to leaving for Europe I scooped up this jacket, this cardigan (in flax), and these earrings (in crystal). Take 20% off with code INSIDER.

This week’s cat-related news: Cats are badass loners… and Karl Lagerfeld is now selling $538 stuffed versions of his kitty, Choupette.

Well, I guess “ghosting” really is a thing – it’s now in the dictionary. Find out what other words were added.

Sale sale sale sale alert!!! Ann Taylor is offering $50 off dresses with code DRESS50! My favorites are this, this, and this.

I want a warm weather vacation – and both of these cute outfits!

How to efficiently contact your elected officials.

This cozy tunic sweater has the prettiest lace detailing.

The proper way to apologize.

SO psyched about Nordstrom’s new K-Beauty Pop-Up!

It’s cold outside so snuggle up in these things.

Love the shape (and the big gold ring) on this OTAAT/Meyers Clutch!

You need to know about these up and coming handbag designers.

Scenes (and trends) from Fashion Week 2017.

This unicorn clutch is just really fun.

Blair hit it out of the park with this outfit.

Basically the perfect tee/sweater hybrid AND under $20!

Love this warm weather wish list.

    Fun things here! Bee pollen has been around forever, cool to see it’s getting some new press. Maybe I will try it again! So jealous of your Europe trip. Copenhagen is on my list. Visited my sister several times when she lived in the Netherlands. The people there are super tall too. I remember loving how big the bathtubs were! I would take a bath everyday ❤️

      Thanks Cy! I know, I noticed that too – the tub in my hotel was really really deep!!! 🙂

  4. I’ve been adding bee pollen to almost all of my smoothies for a few years now! It’s such a great superfood with antioxidants and protein. You can also take a spoonful on its own, but I prefer it mixed into a smoothie.

      That is so interesting! I think I’d probably also put it in my smoothies… alone feels intimidating!
