ABOUT ARIELLE

Some people are born with a creative channel that just won’t stop. SomethingNavy was born in 2009 of an overflowing of all things stylish and creative, and satiated my excitement to share what was in my life and on my heart; the world of fashion.

Since then, nothing and everything has changed. I grew up in a fashion industry family, and as the middle child of three girls I’ve always looked for new ways to express myself. I now live in New York, I’m married, and a mother of two-ish (my daughter Ruby and Dylan, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel). My blog and passion for creating a life on my own terms are as strong as ever!

ABOUT us

SomethingNavy is the discerning woman’s guide to wearable, adaptable inspiration. We hold fast to the idea of staying true to oneself, yet we’re always drawn to new things and love inspiring women to step into and beyond their own personal styles. We’re honored to have been featured in publications like Glamour, Cosmopolitan, BRIDES, and The Coveteur, and have collaborated with brands such as TRESemmé, Rag & Bone, Neiman Marcus, Marc Jacobs, and Kate Spade.

On March 11, 2016 little Ruby came roaring into our lives and ever since I constantly marvel at how something so little can make my heart feel so big. I look forward to sharing my journey into motherhood with you through all the beauty, tribulations, and unexpected surprises that it brings.

  11. Hello Arielle I love your hair. It looks so smooth. Question, I bought the new Dyston Blowdryer and I feel it leaves my hair so frizzy. I am surprised because the dryer is so expensive. Do you have end recommendations on a hair dryer?

    Answer: I just bought the newest GHD blowdryer and I am loving it!

  12. Dear Arielle,

    If your baby is agitated and crying, why wouldn’t you consider your fellow passengers enough to delay boarding until the next flight? In truth, a child that young shouldn’t be flying anyway; for one thing, think of the vast diversity of colonies of foreign bacteria, viruses and other organic agents you’re exposing her to… it’s horrifying.

    Airlines should provide mom ‘n infant quiet lounges near their gates to accommodate families in these situations, and offer to rebook them on later flights at no charge. Or, if the family insists, then they would be obligated to pay a substantial ($5,000?) surcharge to be distributed to other passengers within earshot as compensation for the suffering they will endure. If I were paying an airline substantial multiples of an economy fare for the comfort and (presumed) quiet of first class, I would consider the contract violated and my money wasted.

  13. Arielle, What kind of terrible person writes a post on your blog like this:

    Dear Arielle,

    If your baby is agitated and crying, why wouldn’t you consider your fellow passengers enough to delay boarding until the next flight? In truth, a child that young shouldn’t be flying anyway; for one thing, think of the vast diversity of colonies of foreign bacteria, viruses and other organic agents you’re exposing her to… it’s horrifying….

    …….
    I mean, who thinks like that?
    As a father of a 18 month old who also travels for business and have seen both ends of the experience, i have a new found sympathy for parents traveling with infants and toddlers. Sorry for your experience on that flight and messages from assholes like the one above. Thankfully, I’ve been on several flights with a fussy baby and found support from other fliers who reassure us that they’ve been through it before as well. I just hope the next one is near the asshole who posted that other message.
    Good luck

  14. Arielle,

    Aside from a nose job, what other procedures have you gotten? Do you recoomend plastic surgery for ugly babies named Ruby?

    Xo,

  15. Why don’t you respect other passengers on the flight? If you can’t handle your kid, why do you even bring it on the flight?

    And why did you act like a bitch to cry in front of the media when it’s clearly your fault? Please acting like first class citizen when you paying for first class. Letting your kid annoyed other passengers is rediculous.

  16. Do you call this a job? Does it satisfy you? What value do you provide to society? Seems like a bunch of frivolous nonsense of a bored housewife.

  17. Came across your blog after reading about your awful experience with Delta (I have an 18 month old and totally get it; you did everything you could and hope you and your lovely family are doing well). The plus side for me is I got to discover your blog. After having put on some weight with my pregnancy, seeing all the fabulous clothes on here motivated me to get myself into better shape. So, many thanks and don’t let the internet trolls get you down. Clearly, none of them have children.

  18. I came across your website after hearing about your experience with Delta Airlines, I love it by the ways. After reading Ask Arielle questions and comments, I cant believe how mean some of the comments are about your experience. Obviously, they have no children and cant believe people can be so cruel. As mother we try our best for our children and instead of people judging a mother with a crying baby maybe they should try something called compassion. I have been in your position before and completely understand you cant control everything. As women and human beings we should lift each other up not tear each other down. If you can not say anything nice maybe you shouldn’t say anything at all.

  19. Arielle, my daughter is 9 days younger than yours. I flew internationally with her at 5 months. She was fussy and cried. Flew with delta as well. It’s funny that people consider flying to be so luxurious like a trip to the spa or something. It’s a mode of transportation people. This woman paid for her ticket like anyone else and all you assholes were babies once. What was she supposed to do, Drive? Also, to the individuals bashing this beautiful woman and her family, continue hating, jealousy is such an ugly thing. Calling a child ugly is uncalled for and hurtful. I don’t know Arielle but she is a human with feelings so back off and leave this woman alone. Go get a fucking life instead of being envious of her’s. Arielle you go girl, let the haters hate. Sending love and peace to you and your family.

  20. This is exactly why there are now restaurants that ban children under a certain age. Because of people like you that have no consideration for anyone else. It was what, a 3-4 day trip to CA? I’ guessing because of the timing it was to see family? How about flying them out to see the newborn, instead of ruining everyone else’s trip? Flying with a 9 month old is just stupid and inconsiderate, not to mention dangerous to your child (limited immune system, planes are prolific germ farms). Self-centered people like you will be the downfall of our society, I hope karma catches up with you

  21. I am writing about your screaming baby onboard Delta. What make you think you can board a plane and create chaos among people who paid as much as you did.
    First class is a zen zone when passengers can relax and stay away from travelers like yourself, not a nursing hospital waiting room.
    If you have that much money, hire a private jet and leave people with in peace and quiet.
    Good job Delta.
    Enough is enough.

  22. I love your blog and am outraged by what some people have written below. You and your beautiful family are clearly lovely, and crying babies and young mothers need our compassion, patience and love, not the vitriol that’s been spewed below. Please don’t let the hateful comments stick. Thanks for having the courage to start this blog and bring beauty to life every day. Stay strong and keep at it!

  23. I follow you on instagram and love watching your insta stories, especially the ones with Ruby. While having dinner with my husband tonight I showed him how cute your daughter is and he was curious as in to why the name “something navy” ? Funny thing is I don’t know either. Would you mind sharing the story behind it?

  24. Hi Arielle

    Can you please please tell us what lipsticks you’ve been wearing in your recent posts? The post for FAB (a dark berry) and at Two Hands (red).

    Thank you!!

  25. Hi! Looking at this photo from the Foray website. Wondering who makes your sunglasses. You wore them with a rainbow shirt. They kind of look like aviators.

  26. Arielle, I want to buy my first high end designer handbag that is simple, classic, and goes with a lot. What are some good ideas for a piece that will last me for awhile??

  27. Ignore the trolls-
    So unhappy and disturbed, it’s honestly horrifying. You are beautiful, talented and a great human-
    Keep up the goodness- you rock!
    Mom of 3 young girls who are inspired by you daily x

  28. Regarding your Delta incident, you need to act like a responsible adult. It was not the airlines fault. They have to respect the other first class passengers as well. Why do you feel that you are a victim. Quit blaming other people for your problems and deal with them. This is all a part of life and being a parent. We are not entitled to anything and it is not the job of others to coddle you.

  29. Hi Arielle!
    My prom is coming up and I was wondering if you had suggestions as to where I can find gorgeous dresses that won’t be too over-the-top or too pricy. I don’t want to have the same dress as everyone else but I don’t want to sacrifice a budget to find a pretty dress.

  30. Hi Arielle, it seems the archive section is still not working so is there another way to view older posts? Also, you still have jane’s email listed… Just want to help you keep your site updated!

  31. Not a question but I just was flicking through your comments & can’t believe how awful people can be. The creative content you are putting out there is great & you were so ahead of the blogging game you deserve everything success you get, some people are just mean & will never be happy of anyone else’s success!!
    With very best wishes
    Ella

  32. Hi Arielle! Have you ever had your hair short? I recently went short with mine, but your beach waves have me wanting long hair again. Any tips for short hair styles until then?

  33. Hello from Chile.

    I have a baby girl clothing brand, all Made in Chile by artesana….and would love to send Ruby some Outfits. Is it possible?
