Shoes and Boots to Buy Now

Now more than ever, I want to be comfortable but without sacrificing style!  And this, or course, applies not just to my clothes, but to my shoes as well. Although I’ll never give up heels completely, I’m a lot pickier about the type of heel that I’ll wear. Comfort and walkability is a priority!  As we’re headed into the winter season, I am sharing my fave shoes and boots to buy now.  All classic looks with great style, I specifically chose styles that you’ll be happy to wear year after year. 😉 Continue Reading →

What to Wear Fall / Winter 2020, Wearing Zara Tweed Jacket, Sezane Skirt, Stuart Weitzman Over-The-Knee boots, and carrying Caroline De Marchi Bag

Hi Everyone!  Hopefully, you are enjoying the fall season.  With all the craziness of the past few months, I’m still stuck in a summer transition mode as time has flown by!  Also, I usually would have attended fashion weeks in NYC and Paris in Sep/early Oct, so not going in person kind of makes me feel like we’re still in early September. ?   But here we are in mid-October… It’s time to embrace the fall season, and of course fall and winter fashion 2020!

Some of the trends I loved that showed on the runways for this season are ruffle blouses, fringe detail, jewel tones, plaids and prep school inspired looks.  I put together a round-up of my fave pieces that incorporate some of this season’s trends while being versatile to wear dressed down as well as dressed up.  Continue Reading →
