Instagram Life

This is just a little recap of the last month and a half. I was cleaning out the pictures in my iPhone and found a few that slipped through the cracks but also some favorites that I’ve posted.

Right before I added blonde high lights! I’m actually going back and forth with it, I love the lighter hair but I have been missing being a full brunette. We’ll see!

This beyond stunning dress was given to me by Christian Siriano. He is so incredibly talented and I pretty much died when I saw this one. I had to wear it. We had so much fun at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation Hot Pink Party last night. I’m so glad we were able to support.

Seriously loving these PAIGE DENIM overalls. It was the perfect day to wear them, after being super dressed up, all you want to do is wear the comfiest items you own.

BANDIER!!!! Do you guys like the work out pictures? I felt like video became too controversial and I hated all the negativity it brought to my Instagram page. I’m sticking to my photos now, hopefully everyone still enjoys!

Ippolita x SomethingNavy

On Tuesday morning, I hosted a small gathering for friends and family at the Ippolita store on Madison Avenue. I was excited to invite my mother and my husbands grandmother because this month, it’s all about Mother’s Day. Ippolita has so many beautiful pieces to offer as special gifts for the women in your life. My mother is my biggest inspiration and my biggest cheerleader, a gift from Ippolita is something special and classic that I know she will have forever. My husbands grandmother over the years has given me so much of her jewelry that I felt this was the perfect way to give back.

The pieces I came in with were simple and delicate gold jewels. The necklace was a simple yellow gold bar and I paired it with a classic gold bangle. While there, I also learned all about the Citrine gem which I am now in love with. If you’re on the hunt for something special for your mother, check out the entire Ippolita collection here or head over to the store!

Jacket: Elizabeth Roberts | Tee: Elizabeth Roberts

 It’s not always easy finding transitional coats that are appropriate for Spring. I feel like we think of the typical denim or leather jacket but during days like today when it’s still in the 50’s with a little bit of a chill in the air, we look for something specific. Something like Elizabeth Roberts.

Channel-quilted lightweight taffeta and proprietary SMARTSHIELD™ pocket make this a technically advanced jacket while the grosgrain trim and bomber-style silhouette create a wearable feminine design that is appropriate across occasions!

An even more amazing piece I found from Elizabeth Roberts were their Tissue Weight Jersey tees sourced from Italy. They’re so light but not sheer, so soft but not cotton and the silky soft fabric has a great drape and resists wrinkling and pulling.

All in all, the perfect Spring combo to get you through the season while looking chic.

You can never go wrong with a simple black blazer. Thanks to Karen Kane, I found the most perfect one for summer. It’s light weight with pockets and chic button make it the ideal piece to throw over almost anything over the next few months.

I paired it here with simple silk shorts and a floral blouse for some color. This will be my go to look for a night out with friends or a dinner date with my husband.

I head out East to the Hamptons almost every weekend once Memorial Day Weekend hits and at night by the water it gets super chilly so it’s imperative to bring a light jacket or blazer. However, it’s always the one thing I’m searching for in my closet when I’m packing and never find the right piece to bring out. I wind up hating everything I packed and get stuck throwing on my moms denim jacket. I can’t wait to finally have something that will actually dress up a summer outfit, keep me warm and chic all at the same time! I bet my sisters and my mom will be the ones asking to borrow mine this year.

Check out HERE more of the Karen Kane collection and find your staple pieces for this Spring/Summer!

Top: Velvet by Graham & Spencer | Jeans: Rag & Bone | Shoes: Aquazurra | Bag: Chanel | Sunnies: Illesteva

I saw this top on Lily Aldridge and needed to have it. I mean everything she wears I need to have but this specifically really spoke to me, the red with a brunette really popped and I loved the color paired with simple blue jeans. Graham & Spencer has always been a favorite brand of mine since I was young so Velvet naturally made sense with my wardrobe and style.

The jeans are Rag & Bone. Pretty much my all time favorite denim, I love the way their jeans fit and I love every single style. I would wear any jean they make without even trying on, that’s how much I trust their denim (with my body type).

Today is a little bit chillier so I added a leather jacket on top of this to run some errands. Happy Thursday everyone, almost the weekend – hang in there! x

Jeans: AYR | Shoes: Jenni Kayne (N/A) – beige | Tee: LNA | Jacket: Topshop (N/A) similar | Clutch: Marie Turnor | Sunnies: Smoke x Mirrors

All white and a little fringe action for Wednesday’s outfit inspiration. I’m always pairing different shades of a color to make an outfit, I get it from my mom. She’s a huge fan of monochrome and has totally passed it down to me, it’s simple, it’s chic and always looks pretty (just like my mother). I decided to make my shoes the pop of something and I think they wound up really completing the look. I love Jenni Kayne flats and these leopard pony hair have been one of my favorites from her. Yesterday, on Instagram I posted my new black Jenni Kayne mules which I know I will absolutely live in this summer. They are so easy to throw on to run errands, walk Dylan, but still look nice enough to dress up for a day of meetings. Speaking of Dylan, I need to go pick him up from his bath/haircut.

Happy hump day guys, thanks for stopping by!
