Craig and I re-decorate our apartment often. With his carpentry skills and my obsession with utilizing every corner of our tiny apartment (I guess it’s become less of an obsession and more of a necessity) we are always looking for new ways to make our space feel cozy but not cramped. One trick is to keep as much as possible off the floor, so Craig has built lots of shelving and garment racks for me throughout our apartment. Our latest project was our bedroom, and I was super excited to team up with Nautica to give it a little makeover. I absolutely fell in love with this bedding because of it’s beachy bohemian vibe that completely brightens our bedroom. I love the subtle hints of grey throughout that add just the right amount of color. Throughout the room we have little pieces from our travels (a glass jar from Paris, a painting from a flea market in LA) and a few things we’ve found on the beach in the summer (Craig built the shelf above our bed out of driftwood and the shoe shelves from old dresser drawers and old shutters). As you may be able to tell there’s lots of spring pastels and neutrals in my closet, just need to wait another 2 months before I can wear any of them! This month I’m also curating a guest Pinterest board here with Nautica that has lots of nautical and coastal inspiration so be sure to check it out. Happy Friday! xx

As winter drags on I’m starting to try and get creative. The same old 14 layers under a coat thing is getting tiresome (though still necessary) so I’ve started experimenting with other ways to stay warm and still look somewhat presentable. I absolutely love this white coat from French Connection (60% off w/ code PRES60) but I wear it all the time so to give it a completely different look I layered it under this faux fur vest. Win win because it’s a lot warmer too! And to brighten up my look and make me “feel” like Spring is on the horizon I pulled out my white skinny jeans and rocked these new over the knee boots from Bluefly (they have tons of Stuart Weitzman boots on sale!). Believe it or not it really does help keep your legs warm if you wear thick socks underneath. More snow today and tomorrow but on a happier note, daylight savings is 10 days away and my warm weather getaway is 12 days away!

Some of you may have already seen my feature last week on The Everygirl, but for those who missed it I wanted to share a little sneak peek at the three looks I styled with ankle boots. I wear ankle boots a lot, practically every day and I wear them year round. There are so many different styles, sometimes they can be hard to figure out how to wear them or what to wear them with. You can see my full feature here and hopefully get some inspiration on how to wear your ankle boots.

Sometimes the simplest look can turn out to be the best. Easy boyfriend jeans, a ribbed mock neck sweater and a plaid wool coat is the ideal comfortable, casual and chic look for everyday. If boyfriend jeans aren’t appropriate for your work wear swap them out for a skirt or trousers. Happy Monday!

Taking a break from sharing my NYFW style to share an outfit I wore to explore Central Park with Craig when we had some free time between shows. It started to lightly snow while we were there and it was so pretty. I stuck to my usual weekend uniform of skinny jeans, an oversize sweater, ankle boots and a warm wool coat. I’ve been getting a lot of use out of this coat and scarf because they go so well everything. It’s almost impossible to dress warm enough for the weather we’ve been having lately. It’s a feel like temp of -18 today in Newport so there just aren’t enough layers in existence to keep me warm. My warm weather vacation can’t come soon enough.

Not sure if you can tell how absolutely FRIGID New York was on this day but it was BEYOND cold. After shooting NYFW street style Craig had to put my socks and sneakers on because my fingers were frozen. A photographer did say he thought I was French though so that basically made my day (maybe it’s the hair?). Despite being absolutely frozen I was really excited to rock this look from French Connection. The top is actually a dress which I can not wait to wear in a few weeks, but it’s also super chic tucked in to these powder blue trousers. I’ve never really been a huge fan of power blue so it’s funny that I was drawn to this outfit. It feels very spring though and despite it being in the single digits the colors made me feel happy.

On a more personal note, I wanted to share with all of you the website my cousin recently designed for Project ReMind, a non-profit that’s near and dear to our hearts. The mission of Project ReMind is to expand knowledge, increase public awareness, and aid researchers in their efforts toward finding the cause and a cure for Frontotemperal Degeneration (FTD). FTD is a progressive degenerative brain disease affecting 50,000 to 60,000 Americans.  The onset of the disease often occurs between the ages of 50 and 60 and affects parts of the brain that control behavior, language, and movement. After our close friend’s father passed away from FTD in 2011, they founded Project ReMind, and the work they are doing to raise funds and awareness for the disease is truly inspiring and remarkable. You can visit Project ReMind to learn more about how you can be a part of of this incredible non-profit.
