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!


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.

I like to let my hair air-dry. Cargo is the best blush man has ever concocted. Yes, those jeans from last season are still very, very cool.

  3. Hey Arielle,
    I want to start a blog but have no idea where to start. Any tips on weather I should go with blogger. Com or WordPress?
    Thanks for the help!

    Hi Sarah..I use WordPress and love it!

  4. Do you have a search button anywhere? The archive section in also not working very well (are there any page buttons to click on?). I’d like to browse some of your old outfits for inspiration and fall shopping.

    Answer: There is a search button in the top right corner of the blog, archives should be working now though!

  5. Hi Arielle! Can you recommend some chic simple flats for pregnancy? Work appropriate? I am dreading a shoe dry spell 🙂 Thank you!!!

    Answer: I love the scalloped Chloe ones, they are super comfortable and cute!

  6. HI Arielle,
    I love your hair color and the subtle highlights! I’m in NY often so I’m curious who does your color?

    Ruby is precious by the way, my Gabriella is just now 3, they bring you so much joy!


  7. I’m starting a blog, and I am currently all over the place. Any advice on how to streamline, and how to gain a following?

  8. Hi Arielle! I was wondering where do you, Jane and your sister get your Levi’s jeans from? and what style are they exactly? Thanks!

    Answer: We usually order offline from websites such as Shopbop and Revolve!

  9. Hi Arielle!
    Your blog is amazing! What is your GO TO perfume? I have been using tom ford black orchid and diptique looking for a change.
    PS I am also a Cuse alumni 2004!!

    Answer: I love the Chloe perfume- it has always been my go-to!

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. 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??

  19. Ignore the trolls-

    Keep up the goodness- you rock!

  20. 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.

  21. 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!

  22. 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
