A Mommy NYE

While living in the city, the hubs and I had the absolute best New Years Eves. Some highlights included midnight dinner in the west village with my college girlfriends, followed by all nighters at the various bars along Christopher Street. Since moving to the burbs and having our sweet little man, the holiday has meant different types of fun (and certainly different attire). This year, spending the evening with fellow parent friends while the kiddos play until they pass out is my perfect plan.  The agenda calls for plenty of champagne, and some lovely leggings.

Christmas Eve

Keeping our family traditional in tact, we'll be dining out Christmas Eve and then my hubby and I will be cooking Christmas dinner for the family the following day. I opt for a little glam for dinner out, and then comfy yet chic pieces for the next day. I'll be happy if Tucker agrees to wear anything other than sweatpants!

Looks to Love

December 19, 2014


I am loving Nars' new Audacious lipstick line. So far I have Anita (nude rosey-hue), Raquel (above, a perfect bare pink), and Audrey (berry-wine shade I am wearing to my office party tonight). I also cant go too long with some hand lotion (such as EOS) and my new impressive business cards are always within reach. What are your #necessities ?

#TBT: Blogger edition

For 'throw back Thursday' I'm revisiting my very first post as a new blogger at Wearing White After Labor Day back in 2009, when I was a recent law school grad studying for the Bar exam and planning my wedding. Read it here, on my old site. Happy Thursday Musings friends!

Winter Chic for Him

Winter Chic with Bonobos

A wool sweater over a classically tailored shirt, some preppy driving loafers, and a plaid scarf are the epitome of winter style to me (as is watching college football on Saturdays to my husband). When Bonobos asked me to participate in their style challenge last month, I did some shopping of my own. Not only do we love the brand for its quality and tailoring, but they have a great style and sense of humor that differentiates them from the myriad mens clothiers. Be sure to visit for some holiday shopping.

Ahh, those days where by 9 am, you are done and ready for bed. When a sweet, adorable 3 year old is possessed by something evil, refuses to dress, to eat, to leave the house, and work seems like vacation.  As a not yet- potty trained tot stands there without his diaper and refuses to put one on, and is then irrationally upset when he pees on the floor and your Prada pumps (because today, of course, you have a meeting). These episodes are infrequent in the evil threes at first, and you think maybe you are among the lucky few that will listen to others tell tales of misery while cuddling your sweet boy. But then, the iPad is slammed onto the floor and tears fly over a lost wifi signal, and you see that it will not be such smooth sailing. Though surviving sleepless infant-hood should prepare us for the trials and tribulations for the toddler years, they seem no less intolerable as they are occurring. Just grant me patience, wine, and Soul Cycle.

Modern Decor with Modani

Modern Decor with Modani

Modani epitomizes modern chic. Their contemporary lines, bold silhouettes and rich textures are the perfect compliment to my personal style. I love the icy silver of these chairs against the graphic area rug and citron pillows. Anyone who has been to my home knows I can't get enough citron accents! The modern sofa is the cherry on top- just as the perfect silk blouse can completely make an outfit.
