Taking Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring

I’m in that awkward phase right now where it’s still winter and I love it, but I’m also craving spring. Please tell me I’m not the only one? I want to talk about taking your wardrobe from winter to spring. Similar to staying warm in the winter, layering is key here. There will be days where it’s unseasonably warm and you’ll want to wear lighter pieces. having them out in your closet and ready to go will make this easier. Also, embracing bringing back pops of color if you wear a lot of neutrals in the winter. Here are are my three easy steps to taking your wardrobe from winter to spring.

What to Pack for a Winter Trip in New York City

The official start of Winter is less than a week away and during our time in New York City, I got so many questions about breaking down what to pack! Even though I absolutely love winter and snow, I do not like being cold. We all hear layering is key, but how do you properly do it? What fabrics should you get? How do you really stay warm? I believe in being realistic and not sacrificing for fashion. You can totally have both! Cozy up with a hot cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa because I’m sharing what to pack for a winter trip in New York City!

Practical Gifts to Give for him & her feat. Mark & Graham

I’m a big believer in giving gifts people will use. After all, you’re spending your hard-earned money so you don’t want it to go to waste! I’m partnering with Mark & Graham to share practical gifts for him and her.  One reason I love Mark & Graham is you can personalize every gift. Adding a monogram is the extra touch and can make a gift truly unique and memorable. Plus, you can shop for anyone there, whether it’s a significant other, parent, best friend or coworker.  My photographer who took these photos is actually looking at items to gift her bridesmaids from Mark & Graham.  I’m breaking this post into gifts for him and gifts for her. If you’re an early shopper, grab some coffee or warm tea and settle in! I’ve got plenty of great gift ideas for you! Plus, Mark & Graham wrap all gifts in their signature gift wrap, so you don’t even have to do anything. Once they arrive, tuck them under the tree and you are all set.

Figure Skating with Outdoor Voices

Right boot on, then left boot on. Lace up the right skate, then lace up the left. On a crisp fall morning, come with me to Chilled Ponds, a local ice rink where I’m rediscovering my love for figure skating as a 27-year-old grandma (in figure skating terms, ha!)

I spent 11 years of my life figure skating. I pursued it competitively for most of those 11 years and as all good things, it came to an end. Injuries and just not being good enough to continue pursuing it pushed me to work hard toward my other dreams. I’m nowhere near as good as I used to be but figure skating in Outdoor Voices has inspired me to try some of my old tricks – even if it’s awkward, slow or ends in my butt on the ice.

How to Style Sneakers for Fall

I have a confession to make: I’m a sneaker addict. I’m not quite sure when this all started, but for years now, I have been in love with sneakers. I own a ridiculous amount of pairs I’m not quite comfortable disclosing. Probably because it’s embarrassing. I cannot exactly wear sneakers to work. However, I can wear them almost everywhere else. Today I want to share how to style sneakers with style. Sneakers are getting increasingly popular and can be worn day to night. Styling them can be a tricky situation, especially since sneakers do look so good with workout clothes or athleisure. However, they can look extremely stylish if you pick the right pieces.
