Fashion Friday: The Classic Sweater Everyone in the Family Needs!

I know it’s nothing new (as Miranda Priestly would say “Cable knits for fall? Groundbreaking.”) but the fisherman style sweater is where it’s at for fall– for everyone. For you worn shrunken with high-waisted pants or a feminine skirt or oversized with skinnies and heels it’s the perfect way to stay warm and look cool.

Here are some of my current faves (a lot of them on sale right now!)


Fashion Friday: Block Head

As we approach fall (yay yay yay yay!) so much new stuff is coming out and fall trends are coming into focus- for footwear that means the block heel.  We saw some of this during the summer, but it’s even BIGGER for fall. Which is fantastic since it makes walking a whole lot more stable (can we all agree there is nothing more cringe-worthy than watching a woman walking like a foal on new legs in expensive, painful 4″ stilettos?)  Be it boots, booties, pumps or even flats- a chunky heels of any size will make you look of the moment this coming season.  I’m still on the fence a little with the new trend of “lady who lunches” style small block heels on flats a la Ferragamo, but I’m sure I’ll come around!

Fashion Friday: Where I Shop For Henry

Sorry this is late- Henry’s nanny is out sick so I’m a little behind! A lot of you have asked me on Instagram to do another post about where I shop for Henry– so here you go, a big roundup of where I shop again and again for the little man.  Shopping for girls is easy (my ovaries shudder every time I see something baby girl that is leopard) but boys are a little harder, so I hope this helps!

Gap and Old Navy constantly leave packages by my door not only because their stuff in on trend and well made for the price, but they are ALWAYS having a sale (like right now, 35% off everything).  They have total classics too, like the cable sweater below that I bought when it was on clearance last spring in every size- he’ll probably have one for every year until he goes to college).

Fashion Friday: Welcome M. Gemi!

I’m happy to share a fabulous company with you guys today that is bringing a new angle to the shoe game (which we all like to play, right?) M.Gemi (who also happens to be based in my hometown of Boston) is named after one of the founding members, Maria Gangemi, a longtime devotee of Italian craftsmanship and artistry. Growing up in Sicily, Maria learned the luxury footwear trade from the best in the business. She recalls a time when she would wander Italy’s cobblestone streets and discover goods created with the most exacting attention to design and quality. Each week, boutiques would display new, limited-edition shoes handmade by neighboring shoemakers. They were always fresh, always rare, and always reasonably priced.

Fashion Friday: Fave Recent Purchases

A simple Fashion Friday since I’m on vacation and about to go up to the top of a mountain to have waffles (yup, for real!) Just some items I’ve picked up lately that I’m loving (and one I am lusting after!) Have a great weekend everyone!


  1.  Andrew got me this great Cuyana tote for my birthday and I love the grey color and the fact that it’s logo-less and big enough for all my (and Henry’s) crap (plus a front pocket!)
  2. Picked these great skinny cargo style pants up for my trip- stretchy, comfy and a great fit.
  3. Two fave new beauty finds: Kate Somerville face wash (heavenly smell) and Bumble Surf Spray Foam (a combo of a light mousse and sea salt spray- awesome for volume and beachy air dried waves)
  4. These are my comfy, killer new leopard loafers for fall from Kate Spade. Because DUH.
  5. Totally random sweater vest I happened to just try on and LOVE! Great for fall with fitted long sleeve tee, boots and jeans.
  6. Love Les Bon Bons earrings but can’t stomach the price? These are a fraction of the cost and the same look.
  7. These are J.Crew’s best selling new pant that is perfect for summer with a tee or tank and sandals or for fall with flats and a cute sweater!
  8. DREAM FALL SHOE (wish I could buy): Prada’s suede bow flat. So amazing in person.
  9. Soft, light jammies in a perfect preppy stripe.
