January Wish List


Speaking of neutrals, some fun accessories I’m coveting in the new year…

1. Faux Fur Pom Beanie – cozy and chic // 2. Smashbox Travel Eyeshadow Palette – all my favorite matte and metallic shades in one small compact // 3. Firefly Cluster Earrings – love their vintage charm // 4. Shimmer Marquee Ring – subtle sparkle // 5.Comme des Garçons Polka Dot French Wallet – the polka dot grows up // 6. Glitter Kitty iPhone Case – I’m allergic to cats, but something about this case makes me smile // 7. Nike Free Flyknit Running Sneakers – thinking of committing to a half marathon in May, these would be great motivation! //

Blank Slate










Fashion designer Jenni Kayne’s Los Angeles home has been published far and wide, but these shots by C Magazine didn’t cross my path until today. I’m trying to adopt a “less is more” mantra for 2015 (time to declutter!) and Kayne’s neutral palette is right up my alley. I love the interior’s subtle textures and clean lines. British fashion icon Vivienne Westwood once quipped, “Buy less, choose well” and I hope to remember her sage advice while editing down my home and wardrobe this year. Is there anything better than a fresh start? Out with the old, in with the new. Speaking of which, lots of exciting updates to come…stay tuned, I can’t wait to share! Happy New Year!

Insta-Crush: @heynataliejean









There are few instagram feeds that make me smile more than that of Natalie Holbrook. We were on a social media panel together a couple years back and I instantly took a liking to Natalie’s refreshingly candid approach to blogging and well, life. She’s got killer style, a heart of gold, and a rare genuineness that instantly endears you to her. Natalie’s irresistible instagram feed is full of her NYC adventures with her handsome ginger husband and their cute as pie son, Henry (known as “Huck”). Photos of Huck at the Met Museum and strolling the streets of Brooklyn never fail to warm my heart — what a special experience to raise a child in New York City. You can bet Alfred and I are inviting Natalie and Huck for a play date when we’re next in town! In the meantime, we’ll be following their escapades on Natalie’s charming instagram feed here.

J.Crew Crisp White Bib Shirt – a classic, always and forever piece… / 4. Topshop Faux Fur Coat – the statement piece… / 5. Essie Nail Polish in Tiny Winey – a great red… 6. Giles & Brother Cortina Cuff – she is often spotted wearing one on each wrist, SO chic… / 7. Clare V Metallic Dot Clutch – understated with a hint of sparkle… /
