guys, how cool are these GREEN suede pumps?! as far as fall shoes go, you’re most likely into the basic ankle bootie or a high-knee boot with a heel – am i right or what? if so, why not switch it up and try a sophisticated pump with suede, like this one by tory burch. trust me, i normally wouldn’t go for a shoe like this but look how great they look paired with this outfit? ya just never know & plus, you have to take a little risk in fashion – that’s how you stand out.
just the other day my sister said and i quote ‘you always bring me to sketchy places to take your pictures’. when she said that, i laughed because she’s right. and yes, while this may be true, you have to be open when it comes to location. sometimes those small alley ways create the best back drops! with time, i think she’ll get used to it …
these jeans i’m wearing are brand NEW (j brand) & i love them. if you’re gonna spend a good amount of $ on clothing, one of the items should be on jeans. it’s way worth it to get a good quality pair that fit perfectly. you’ll have them for more then one season, that’s for sure. it’s just the beginning of fall, so a light-weight jacket, like this one by elizabeth & james will do the trick. to top it off, i’m rocking my new sam edelman ankle boots that i can’t stop wearing. sam edelman is a shoe god … who’s with me?
this home is stunning. i really don’t know where to begin. i just WANT everything. let’s start with the first image – the kitchen. i love the lighting, the bar stools & the all white, including the white subway tile. how about the living room? the oversized mirror is perfect for the space and i love how it’s placed behind the couch, against the wall. a little unexpected dimension is good and plus, it adds character to the space. now, the office. this room is sophisticated, simple in design and the designer nailed it with the bookcases. & lastly, all of the bedrooms? they’re done perfectly. the colors, lighting and furniture are all gorgeous. i LOVE that the girls room has wallpaper on the ceiling. that’s another design element, if done right, that makes such a great statement. overall, every room flows nicely into the next. the attention to detail throughout the home is very present, between the beautiful wood paneling and large windows that bring in a ton of natural light. i really do want to move in.
xx and happy almost weekend!
p.s is this hurricane REALLY coming? yikes …

how cute and simple is this living room e-design? a few things worth mentioning. when putting this room together, i found the artwork first & then based everything else off of that. when you’re working with a simple & neutral space, it’s fun to add a pattern, like these striped chairs! just be careful not to mix too many patterns together because then things start to look messy. i’m definitely no expert, but just going off of what i’ve learned!
happy hump day.

fall fashion. i LOVE it. it’s finally getting to the point where wearing layers and pants on a consistent basis is normal. of course, i have an ongoing list of stuff i’m eyeing, including all of this. you can’t go wrong with the staple items, like an ankle bootie or a simple coat. plus, i’m digging the suede lately, weather it be an entire shirt made of suede or just little patches, like this tory burch dress.
what are your favorite fall trends?!
happy friday, friends! i’m looking forward to the weekend for two reasons. the first is that on saturday morning i’m going to the new vernon auction. it’s like going to a garage sale but it’s HUGE. i love it because i usually find some amazing pieces (you have to be mentally prepared to dig & sweat) and also because my biz partner & I find a bunch of great ties!
also, we’re selling at the hoboken festival this year so if you live in the new york city area, you should come & visit us!
