Fashion Friday: Uniform Dressing in Black & Leopard

Obviously it’s known that I love leopard. And I know some people really don’t. But it is a time-tested way to add punch to otherwise simple outfits. Comboined with solid black in small or large doses, it always looks chic, playful and yet timeless. I would kill for this whole outfit, for example.  And you could picture it on Jackie O or Jenna Lyons in equal measure, right?

Fashion Friday: NYE Dressing By Effort Level.

So, it’s New Years Eve tomorrow night and I bet a lot of you have fun plans. As do I. Sitting on my couch (post putting Henry down), watching some episodes of The Crown with Andrew and a nice bottle of red and then going to bed by 10. BOOM. I bet you’re so jealous.  But really, I can think of nothing I want to do more than that.  I’m the youngest granny on the block, and I embrace it now, instead of getting all FOMO about life like I used to.  No glittery Instagram party snaps will make me feel bad about slothing it on the sofa this year!  But more power to you if you are so motivated! So I partnered with Nordstrom, my favorite place to shop online, to bring you four New Years Eve outfits based on your effort level from 1(leggings) to 4 (Spanx).  You’re bound to find inspiration in at least one of these ensembles, if not for tomorrow night, than another night in the near future.


Fashion Friday: A Modern Day Jackie

One of the things I hope to do over the holidays is go see Jackie.  The trailer has me in awe and as someone who has not only always admired Jackie’s style but also was taught to revere her in boarding school (she went to Miss Porters as well and her name seems to always be attached to the school now!)  I’m really interested in cracking the “perfect” exterior of this fashion icon– and I’ve heard the movie does that.


Fashion Friday: Holiday Dressing For All Ages with Halsbrook

I am psyched to introduce you to a new online shop I just discovered, Halsbrook. It’s unique in that I really feel like all ages can shop here (I know that you guys range in age from your 20’s to your 70’s, so this kind of source is so wonderful for those who like this blog!)  The aesthetic is sort of Kate Middleton meets Audrey Hepburn meets Jackie O.  Kinda perfect, right?  They approached me about becoming an EOS sponsor and I was thrilled.  I think their collection is high quality, tightly edited and refreshingly classic (with an edge).  So I put together some holiday looks from their shop to share today in hopes that inspires you in your dressing this season.

I love this look (and have that necklace on it’s way to me as I type!)  Comfortable and classic but with fun touches in the accessories. Oh and did I mention this trench not only has a leopard lining but also a zip in FLEECE lining for when it’s rainy AND cold? Genius (also available in tan).

This dress is STUNNING. Like, truly stunning.  And paired with big statement earrings and a smokey eye is absolute perfection for a fancy holiday fete.
