The Sandals You Need

The Sandals You Need


Clockwise from left: Zara / DV Dolce Vita / Zara / Zara / J.Crew / Steve Madden



I'm somewhat of a shoe hoarder. If you've seen my Instagram account, you have probably noticed that I utilize my floor-to-ceiling bookshelves to showcase my footwear instead of your typical books and knickknacks. I tend to wear my sandals into the ground so I've been on the lookout for new styles for this summer. 

The six styles pictured above are staples that every girl can get a ton of use out of during the summer months. And they're all under $170! I have four weddings this summer so the nude heeled sandal will be great for not only those occasions but also for dressing up my favorite boyfriend jeans. Metallic flats spice up an otherwise bland outfit. And when it comes to leopard print, I'm not normally a fan but on a pair of cute sandals? Sign me up. Oh and every closet needs an embellished flat sandal AND a fun sexy heeled one. Duh.

Which are your favorite?

Have a great weekend!

Four Eyes

Jacket: J.Crew Factory (old); Jeans: James via RueLaLa; Sweater: J.Crew; Heels: J.Crew; Bag: Phillip Lim; Watch: Michael Kors; Rings: Tiffany & Co., vintage; Glasses: Woow via Vizio Optic; Nails: Essie "Bobbing for Baubles"

Some mornings are spent primping and putting together a great outfit. Other mornings I'm lucky if I make it out the door with the same shoes on both feet (yes, that's actually happened.) Today was somewhere in the middle -- got a good night's sleep but also didn't have the energy or desire to dress up. So out came my uniform -- skinny jeans, comfy heels and a sweater. Lately my uniform has also included my fabulous new glasses from Vizio Optic. They're not only functional (thank you, astigmatism!) but they look cute too. They're the perfect addition to any outfit and make me feel sophisticated and pulled together.

Business Casual

Tee: c/o Skip n' Whistle; Skirt: J.Crew; Heels: Zara (old); Bag: Zara; Bracelets: Stella & Dot; Sunnies: Chloe

I love a good graphic tee. Especially when I can pair it with a pencil skirt and wear it around the office -- brings new meaning to the term "Business Casual". In the week I've owned this shirt I've also worn it with a flowy maxi skirt and denim cut offs. Talk about versatile!

Red, White & Blue

Red, White & Blue



In a few short hours I'll be en route to Newport, RI for a little vacay with the girls. And while our current plans for the 4th are to completely veg on the beach with some good tunes and an adult bevy or two, I still plan to be festively dressed for the occasion. Above are my picks for properly celebrating our beautiful country and looking stylish at the same time!

Clockwise from top left: Zara Dress / Tibi Tank / Red Chucks / Kate Spade Watch / H&M Linen Pants / Kate Spade Wedges / L*Space Bikini / Nautical Towel / J.Crew Striped Linen Shorts / Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

Napa Snapshots

Sweater: J.Crew Tippi; Shorts: J.Crew Factory; Sandals: J.Crew Factory (in pink & mint HERE; Watch: Michael Kors; Bangles: Alex & Ani

Just wanted to share a few quick shots from my trip to Napa. We had such an amazing time -- I can't wait to go back!

What says summertime more than sunflowers?

Ram's Gate takes the cake for best architecture AND best sauvignon blanc!

Duckhorn Vineyards

Look at this scenery! Sterling Vineyards (you take a gondola up to the winery -- how cool?)

Summer Wind

Dress: J.Crew (similar HERE); Wedges: Seychelles; Bag: Michael Kors; Watch: Michael Kors; Bangles: Alex & Ani

L's Lesson of the Day: It's physically impossible to look cute when there are gale force winds ripping through your hair. I shouldn't complain too much because we had an absolutely beautiful weekend here in Boston, regardless of the "breeze". I should also be thankful the pedestrians of Cambridge weren't exposed to a Marilyn-type moment while snapping these photos. So all in all, I guess we can chalk Sunday up to a win.



Thank you to Jordan for being my photog for the day!

A Metallic Moment

A Metallic Moment

I NEVER in a million years thought I'd be digging the whole metallic thing. But I am, and now I'm obsessing over every single piece in this set. Add one of the above items to an otherwise understated outfit and BAM! Instant pizzazz.

Middle Row: Kate Spade Bow Belt / J.Crew Wedges / Sperry Top-Sider Sandal / Jimmy Choo Heels

Bottom Row: Zara Blouse / Forever21 Necklace / Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC / Toy Watch Rose Gold Watch

Would you wear any of these pieces? If so, what and how would you rock them?

Mad Men Style

Mad Men Style



Sooo I don't actually watch the show {yet} but I've always loved the glam, retro style that Mad Men embodies. So clean and polished. I also love that it's become incredibly mainstream as of late... Thank you, Banana Republic. My office is hosting a Mad Men style day tomorrow where all are encouraged to dress in their best Don Draper and Betty Francis get-ups. Should I go with the dress, neckerchief and gloves or the cropped pants, cat eye glasses and cardi set?

Outfit 1: TopMan Vest / Neil Barrett Shirt & Tie / TopMan Suit Pants / Black Penny Loafers / Salvatore Ferragamo Watch

Outfit 2: TopShop Jacquard Dress / Neckerchief / Tights / Lanvin Short Gloves / KORS Michael Kors Strappy Heel / Structured Bag / Red Lipstick

Dot Dot Dot

Pajama Blouse: J.Crew (ON SALE); Skirt: J.Crew; Jacket: J.Crew Factory; Tights: Express (old); Boots: Victoria's Secret (old); Bag: Vintage Chanel; Rings: Stella & Dot

Happy Monday my loves! Are you growing tired of my black & white outfits yet? I vow to incorporate more color into my wardrobe as soon as the weather perks up a bit. I've picked up a few spring/summer pieces in bright colors and can't WAIT to wear them. On a totally random note, I'm also tired of my hair. I'm thinking of chopping a few inches off... thoughts?

Weekday Grunge

Cargo Jacket: F21 (old); Sweater: J.Crew Tippi; Boyfriend Jeans: Gap; Booties: Steve Madden; Watch: Michael Kors; Clutch: Louis Vuitton

Oh hey guys! Sorry for being MIA lately. Between a crazy day job, traveling on the weekends, and wacky weather that can't decide what it wants to do, it's become near impossible to find time to snap pics. The good news is my schedule is calming down and the forecast is looking up so there should be plenty of outfit posts to look forward to from here on out.

Yesterday I was feeling a bit frazzled, if you couldn't tell by my outfit. But the end result was exactly what I was going for -- a little bit grungy, a little bit girly. Luckily I work in a very creative workplace that allows us to wear basically whatever we please. Add a dramatic lip and some frilly details and you're left with an outfit that's perfect for running errands or running around Rue La La.

Holiday Plaid + Sequins

Shirt: J.Crew (similar); Skirt: Ann Taylor; Belt: Express (old); Tights: Hue; Heels: Charles David; Clutch: F21; Necklace: F21

I guess there are worse things than having multiple holiday parties to attend, right? Lately I've actually been looking forward to Mondays (I know, what's wrong with me?!) because it means I can get through my work day and potentially go to bed at a decent time. Working in retail means this time of year is insanely busy and the days have been blending into one another. That's great for getting to the end goal of a little vacation time with the fam, but really bad for sleeping schedules and stress levels.

Last week Rue La La had their annual holiday party and we all got to enjoy a night off to dance and let loose. While some let loose a little more than others, it was a night enjoyed by all. Our dress code was "festive casual" so I decided to mix a little holiday plaid with some festive sequins. Add a red lip and a pearl necklace and voila! I was instantly back in the Christmas spirit.

My fellow blogger friend Linds opted for another holiday color scheme I love, white and blue. How stunning does she look?

Dress, shoes & clutch, all TJ Maxx (the girl can find some amazing deals!)

What's your go-to holiday look? Are you more of a traditional green and red gal, or are you more in line with the colors in Lindsay's look?

Happy Holidays loves! Safe travels and enjoy the time off with your family and friends.

L's Holiday Gift Guide

L's Holiday Gift Guide


The holidays are all about giving. And my absolute favorite part of gift giving is the look on my family and friends' faces when they open something they truly enjoy. Whether it's a Peace, Love & Barbecue book for my dad or a cool gold giraffe paperweight for one of my girlfriends, these handpicked gifts are a small token of my appreciation.

I LOVE holiday shopping but I cannot stand the crowds so I tend to do most of my shopping online. Be sure to look for websites that offer free shipping or coupon codes. Websites like INPINK.com offer free gift wrapping on all orders, how amazing is that? Oh and today only (12/5), Brooks Brothers is offering 40% off everything. No more procrastinating, get out there and shop! Happy Holidays everyone.

Winterized Leather Peplum

Jacket: J.Crew Factory; Vegan Leather Peplum: Piperlime; Blouse: J.Crew; Jeans: J Brand; Heels: Zara; Bag: Chanel; Nails: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark

Winter is in full swing so lately I've been trying to find ways to get use out of my summer and fall pieces without freezing to death. The answer: layers. Instead of throwing a blazer over my leather peplum top (last seen HERE), I added a simple blouse underneath and can now enjoy it for months to come. Plus the contrast between the soft girly blouse and the "tough" leather top is fun.





Happy Monday!

The Circle Skirt

Skirt: F21; Sweater: J.Crew Tippi; Tights: Target; Shoes: J.Crew; Necklace: Stella & Dot; Watch: Michael Kors "Runway"; Bangles: Alex & Ani

Hi guys! Hope everyone had a fabulous Turkey Day! It was a beautiful day in Central New York and shortly thereafter, it dropped about 30 degrees and snowed. There's something so comforting about being around loved ones and friends who have known you forever. It's so easy to get caught up in life and the problems we think we have -- I know I'm guilty of that. Then I arrive home to my tiny little town that no one else in the world has heard of and voila, I'm reminded that my family, friends and I are really pretty fortunate.
