In My Old Navy Romper

After finding this comfortably stylish romper at Old Navy, I think it’s safe to say that rompers are going to be my thing this spring. Not only do they look fab, since they’re one piece, they also make planning out an outfit super easy.

This spring look first starts with my Hell’s Kitchen rooftop. I absolutely love living in Hell’s Kitchen. I’ve been here for around six years now. It’s a great neighborhood just west of Times Square. While it gets its name from its rough past, the name stuck because now it’s full of great restaurants. I can’t wait to spend more time on my rooftop as the weather gets warmer.

In the spirit of spring, I mixed my Old Navy Slub Weave Romper with my fav Steve Madden Boots (these Over the Knee Boots are similar). I also accessorized with my monogrammed GiGi New York Chelsea Crossbody clutch and my Daniel Wellington ‘Classy Sheffield’ Crystal Index Leather Strap Watch.

My Favorite Fall Trench Coat

Fall in NYC

Fall is hands down the best time of year to be in New York City. Between the cool, yet comfortable air, changing leaves and holiday finds just entering the stores, you simply can’t beat Autumn in New York. A while ago, I came across this fab fall trench by bebe at a random store  on 45th St. At the time, I was holding off on buying a trench coat until I found one that made me feel like I was strolling through the streets of London and this was it. I just love how the contrasting sleeves and asymmetrical zipper make it one of the most fun and unique pieces in my wardrobe.

Surviving Hurricane Sandy: The Day After

New York was hit by Hurricane Sandy and I was here to witness it. Though where I live in Midtown Manhattan, had virtually no damage, my heart goes out to those in Lower Manhattan and other areas along the eastern seaboard who have suffered permanent damage from the storm.  After nearly three days of being confined to my apartment for fear of winds, rain, and flooding, I was happy to get out for a walk earlier today.  Thanks to a tip from Refinery29, I finally satisfied my Starbucks craving when I found out that the Starbucks at Marriott Marquis in Times Square had remained open through the hurricane.  As I see business, bridges, and hopefully the subways reopen, I couldn’t be prouder to live in the most resilient city in the world.
