Olivia Palermo. 

What can I say. A favorite of mine for impeccable New York style. Every time she steps out onto the street or shows up at an event. Polished. Poised. Perfectly Olivia. Here's a look at Olivia doing what she does best. Perfection.


I love nothing more than taking these locks and throwing them up, out of my face. Lately I've been totally crazy about the fresh styles I've seen for one simple look: the pony tail. 

Not just your basic casual, ready to work-out look anymore! The options are endless for simple, elegant style.




Little bites.

Now here's a great little appi to serve.

As football season is in full swing, these little tasters are a great addition to your typical Football Sunday feast! My friend also made these for a tapa-inspired Girls Night In. For any occasion- a simple, easy and delish little bite!

Goat Cheese + Roasted Pepper Crostini

. ingredients .
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
Olive oil
1 baguette, sliced
1 garlic clove, peeled and cut in half crosswise
12 ounces goat cheese
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

. method .
1. Roast red peppers over gas flame, under the broiler, or on the grill. Roast for about 10 minutes, or until peppers are completely black. Place peppers in a paper bag to allow to sweat for about 15 minutes. Peel the charred skins from the peppers and remove the seeds. Cut peppers into short, thin strips. Set aside.
2. Preheat oven to 325º. Brush baguette slices lightly with olive oil on both sides and place on a baking sheet. Bake until dry and lightly toasted, about 15 minutes. Rub the crostini with the garlic clove while they are still warm.
3. Spread a small amount of goat cheese onto each baguette slice. Top with a few strips of peppers and freshly chopped basil. Serve.
*Makes about 30 crostini*

Drape Cape.

Nothing says FALL like one of this season's greatest styles - the cape. Perfect for those first few months as the weather cools, but it's not quite chilly enough to have to completely bundle up.

The last couple years we have seen capes trickling in but playing it safe in mostly black + charcoal hues. This season however, it's a full blown free for all in terms of cape color and style.

Pretty pumpkin.

Last night while out doing some errands I noticed that most stores had started to wheel in their Halloween stock {trust me, I have a radar for the big bagged candy...}. Besides my incredible Halloween costume I am working on for this year's festivities {more on that later}, I've decided to do doorstep pumpkins of a different kind this year. 

No carving, but instead: creating! The perfect way to spice up the entrance to our home, and our main foyer.

Here's some ideas I've gathered.

. Painted chevron pumpkins .

. Cinderella pumpkins .

. Initial pumpkins .

. Button pumpkins .

Knit me.

Today marked an important day. I had to defrost the window on my car a bit in the morning. Fall is officially here {at least where I am!}and soon enough we will be seeing Starbucks Christmas cups and pulling out those cute winter jackets and boots.

Another favorite of mine that I can't wait to bring out of storage are all the cozy knits that are perfect for crisp fall days, and bundling up in as the snow begins to fall. Put together with a belt, a pair of cute riding boots or suede booties... perfect fall style.


Street style .

NYFW Street Style. One of the many components that make up the fashion week as a whole. Not only is what is on the runways an integral part of the industry... but what you wear walking into the show has surfaced as an equally exciting part of the week.

Here's a peek at some of the edgy, crazy, and oh-so-awesome looks saw this year at New York Fashion Week on the streets.

{Including one of our favorites, Kelly Framel from The Glamourai!}
