Velvet is having a big moment right now. From clothing and accessories to home decor, I've always had a thing for its luxe-ness.
One of my favorite velvet pieces is a plum colored J.Crew blazer with lime green lining. I've had the jacket since middle school (#vintage?)and I'm glad I've held onto it.
When I moved to the city and started hunting for furniture to fill my apartment, I couldn't pass up a navy blue velvet couch my mom and I found. The tufted cushions add the perfect accent.
Last February when I saw I saw pictures photos from Tory Burch's Fall/Winter 2017 runway show, I couldn't take my eyes off the beautiful velvet ribbons tied in asymmetrical bows around the low tousled ponytails.
From movie ticket stubs to birthday notes from my sweet friends, I always try to save mementos. You never know what might spark a a creative idea down the road.
A Jane Birkin-esque inspired outfit that ties in her iconic and cool Bohemian flair.
J.Crew chambray shirt One of my favorite shirts for layering under sweaters or just wearing by itself. The blousy fit and gathered detailing on the back adds a feminine twist to the run-of-the-mill chambray shirt. But if you're not into the whole Canadian Tuxedo look, try a classic shirt instead.
J.Crew wide leg chinos There's something about a good pair of pants that make an outfit look effortlessly chic.
Loeffler Randall pumps Give your outfit a little lift with these natural colored round toe pumps.
Krewe sunglasses You can't forget the perfect pair of tortoise sunnies.
Although the weather might not feel Christmassy outside, it sure feels like it inside. I managed to escape in the wee hours of the morning during one of New York City's first snowstorms to fly South for the holidays.
My mom and I have been cooking up a storm and making sure everything is set for our Christmas festivities. From decorating the house with paperwhites to planning holiday parties with our neighbors, the holidays always remind me of how nice it is to cherish family traditions.
