9 Stand Out Coats (all on sale!)

It’s that perfect time of winter where it’s likely we have a lot more cold to endure, but the prices on the cold weather pieces that we need start dropping! You may know that I’m a fan of statement coats, so today I have gathered 9 beauties that may make it a little easier, or […]

Talking Basics: the white tee

I have always been a fan of the basics. By basics, I am referring to those articles of clothing that you reach for as a starting point and good foundation to your outfits. This includes, but isn’t limited to, your denim, t-shirts, basic sweaters, bras, underwear, everyday shoes etc. The majority of my outfits revolve […]

Pepped Up Datenight

Ok girls, this top is SO much fun! When it arrived I had a hard time narrowing down how I wanted to style it. With the storm passing through over the weekend, I decided to shoot a few looks indoors, just so you’d have options ;) Despite the various styles, I’d say pumps are a […]

Crock Pot Chicken Noodle

Is there anyone that’s not a fan of a piping hot bowl of chicken noodle soup? I was fighting a head cold this week and thankfully I had already had this meal planned out for our family. Talk about timing. For such a classic dish, there must be a gazillion recipes you can find for Chicken […]

Valentine Style

With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, I decided to do a little preparation…for you and I. To be honest, I haven’t a clue what our plans will be at the moment. Over the years we have had dates that run the gamut from formal events (funniest memory: Jack once took me on a […]

Striped Poncho

Sweater coats have certainly taken a front seat  in my closet this year. I don’t know exactly what it is that draws me to them. The ease of quickly pulling an outfit together by throwing one on over a few basics? The comfort of what feels like wrapping yourself in a blanket? Yet the chicness […]

Turkey Chili

Chili is nothing new around here, but that being said, we’ve never quite found or created that one perfect pot of chili that we want to turn to time and time again. Well, that is until now. This recipe isn’t reinventing the wheel in any way, but it’s the perfect amount of vegetables, spices and heartiness […]

Get Cozy!

With the holiday’s now behind us and winter setting in, does anyone else find they want to be bundled in cozy layers 24/7, or is it just me? My entire family is one that enjoy’s their ‘comfy clothes’. My husband works from home and is in sweatpants 95% of the time and my son runs […]

Packable Down

January through March are the months where winter really settles in and I often find myself in a constant state of being cold. A few years ago I was all over the super puffy down coats. Especially during the years that I worked and commuted into NYC, I was bundled and warm and ready for […]

Bow Coat

When it comes to higher end brands, Kate Spade has to be one of my favorites. Their overly feminine details, bold colors and patterns bring a huge smile to my face. Although most pieces tend to be investment items, mine have all held true as some of my favorites years on end. When my mom, grandma […]
