    How to Update Your Home For Summer

    Summer is coming so now is the time to clear out and give your home a refreshing update.  The windows will be open, the sun will be shining, and the scent of flowers will fill the air.  This is the perfect time to give your home a little update for the summer.  Put away the faux fur throws, the velvet pillows, and the cookie scented candles until next season. Here’s what should be on your list to lighten up, brighten up, and freshen up your home! Throw pillows Move over velvet. It’s your turn to hibernate. I want to feel light linen and cotton with fresh colors and prints.  Cool,…

    Why You Need a Little White Dress

    Dress: Ann Taylor | Bag: Jacquemus | Shoes: Chanel, similar here Why You Need a Little White Dress The little white dress is the counter to the infamous little black dress.  I do think that a little black dress has become so classic and such a staple in a woman’s wardrobe that a little white dress is almost daring.  Black is a safe color.  It’s all-occasion appropriate, while white does still have some outdated stigmas attached to it. Habit tells us that only the bride wears white, or do not wear white after labor day.  I’m here to tell you why you need a little white dress! The little white…

    Mother’s Day in Maggy London

    Mother’s Day is extra special to me since my twins were born right around that time. On my first Mother’s day, they were just days old. That first one was kind of a blur since I was sleep deprived, feeding two babies, changing two diapers. But it was special.  It’s the little moments that we spend together every day that are most cherished.  I still read them bed-time stories every night, we listen to music on Alexa after dinner (which means dancing too!), and we enjoy family board games.  Mother’s day is a celebration of all of those moments. Brunch is a fan favorite in our house and Mother’s Day…

    Cult Gaia for your next Destination Wedding

    Destination weddings are always so dreamy to me.  The thought of a beautiful event at an exotic place is exciting.  What to wear to a destination wedding also makes my imagination soar.  I think of very romantic and feminine pieces with lots of florals. This dress from Cult Gaia has all of those vibes and more.  A true heirloom item. Did you ever have a piece of clothing that transports you to another place? One that you immediately feel connected with and also feel soulful?  Cult Gaia does that for me.  Their bags have reached real cult status and I believe their clothing line will be next. The name Cult…

    What to Wear to the Theatre

    Jumpsuit- Ann Taylor | Bag- Shrimps | Shoes- Chanel (Chanel boutique), or similar here, affordable here | Sunglasses- YSL (last year’s style) but similar here I love live performances.  Maybe it was my years in dance as a child that got me to love the theatre.  I always thought it as so exciting to perform on a real stage.  In fact, my secret dream career was and still is to perform on Broadway.  Not that I can sing or act, but dancing has always been a love for me. We often go as a family, or just my husband and I to the local theatre or to a Broadway show. …

    The Occasion Outfit for Any Occasion

    Pants: Aritzia, similar here, and here | Top: Sandro | Shoes and bag: Chanel, similar shoes here, similar affordable bag here. Some occasions may be formal and call for dresses, while others just call for your best version of you. During the last several years, that version for me, has often meant a comfortable pants outfit. Having young kids at family parties has made me often choose pants over dresses.  I am always chasing somebody around, playing on the floor, or dealing with a meltdown. Dresses will always have my heart. I absolutely love a good dress, but pants often win because of practicality. I’m always on the look out for…

    Ann Taylor’s New Snakeskin Print

      Ann Taylor has always been a source of work wear for me.  Back when I worked in the office 5 days a week, Ann Taylor  was a definite go-to.  They make styling very easy with lots of options for mixing and matching.  Now that I work from home the majority of the time, I haven’t shopped at Ann Taylor in a very long time.  Just last week I decided to hop on their site and saw this gorgeous snakeskin print that just spoke to me. The snakeskin print was big in 2018 and is still going strong.  I love how this matching set is very subtle.  From afar, it doesn’t…

    An Eyelet Top for Spring

    An eyelet top is a Spring necessity.  It’s one of the most versatile warmer weather tops you can own.  If you are looking for a top that you can easily pair with a variety of items- jeans, shorts, skirts, pants, you name it, then you’ve got it in an eyelet. A white top is a wardrobe staple in most women’s closets. They are simple, stylish, and can be dressed up or down.  If you are looking for a fun alternative to a white shirt, I would suggest trying an eyelet.  It’s pretty, feminine, and a bit more playful than your standard white top.  I like to have both a long-sleeve…
