trend: denim

denim on denim

Inspirational dressing is no easy accomplishment when you’re pregnant. Shapes are limited, and while I do like creatively interpreting trends and silhouettes, the assortment is much, much smaller. With that said, the ever-so-popular denim on denim look (see above) is one that can easily be enjoyed by all body types, whether expecting or not. I love the oversized button-down, paired with detailed denim, and chunky brown braided sandals combo which update this classic head-to-toe ensemble into an on-trend 70’s inspired one.

Get the above look with an oversized button-down from Sundry, a pair of straight leg denim from Baldwin Denim (slim maternity boyfriends from H&M for the mamas-to-be) and these two-tone sandals from See by Chloe.

And a few other ideas to inspire you…

fall sales!

The cold snap has finally arrived throughout most of the country, and nothing says winter holiday months are upon us like seeing your breath come out of your mouth! Tis’ the season. In addition to the weather change, Macy’s Christmas windows going up (yes, this really happened!), and the Rockette’s performing on the Today Show, another indicator that the holiday has arrived is the plethora of sales kicking off! There are a bunch happening this weekend, and even though it might seem early to begin the gift shopping madness, why not get a jumpstart so you don’t feel rushed come December?! Or, just buy a few things for yourself. It’s the weekend after all. Happy shopping!

back to the beach

beach getaway

Hello and happy Friday! It’s getting chilly here in NYC and despite my great love of summer, I’m excited for winter’s coziness and of course the holidays which are right around the corner! So much celebrating and goodness ahead. And possibly a warm getaway in-between the sparkle and eggnog? Dina and I have a trip on the calendar to head down to the Caribbean in early December and I’m so looking forward to it. In lieu of planning ahead (I am type A to the fullest), I started to shop around for a few new breezy dresses to throw in my suitcase. The way I pack for beach getaways is pretty simple: a light, airy dress for each evening, a few bikinis, cover-ups and shoes that go from day to night. I don’t really need much else and will likely do without shoes at all if circumstances permit. With that said, I’ve already scooped up a gorgeous maxi from Reformation, a caftan from Free People, and a gauze dress from Black Crane, that I was coveting all summer long, which is unfortunately sold out. Don’t fret though, because there are so many other choices that will work for your vacay, and many of them on sale since the season is now over. I’ve personally got my eyes on a hot pink swing maxi from ASOS to take me from beach to dinner, a strapless from Ella Moss, a peach plunge neckline style from Indah which will look outstanding with a tan (this one from Indah too!), a cheetah print halter from Zimmerman, and a sleek wrap dress from Norma Kamali.

Now onto swimsuits! Stay tuned…

Happy weekend’ing!

The American culture is drowning in excess. We use way too much of everything and manufacturers are mostly interested in profitability as opposed to saving our planet. I’m as guilty as the next person and consume on an unnecessary mass level, but work everyday at becoming more socially responsible and conscious. With that said, I’m a huge advocate of companies like Chairish who bridge the gap between design lovers, giving us the option to buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another. Instead of adding more stuff to our universe, Chairish trades existing sustainable goods. While Dina and I are discussing our move, it’s brands like this that will come in handy when decorating our new space!

Practice makes perfect so when Chairish challenged me to create a style board featuring one of their chairs that would add a pop of color to a room, I was so up for the challenge! I landed on this moroccan-mid-century modern-bohemian inspired situation. Head on over to the site to check out the full assortment of colorful accent chairs!

supersize it

we the people

Hello friends!  I hope you had a most amazing labor day weekend!  We spent a couple of days outside the city, but were mostly local, super mellow and enjoying the extremely rare silence of the urban jungle.  I cannot believe summer has unofficially ended and while the weather through September remains warm (hello 93 degrees in NYC yesterday!), fall is conceivably here.  This will likely come back to bite me in the ass three months from now, but I am excited for it!  I’ve come to the conclusion that I equally love a chunky sweater as much as a long bohemian’esque maxi dress.  #Truth

With that being said, this season bigger is actually better.  Oversized coats, knits, pants, etc. and who doesn’t love cozy and comfortable when the temperature starts to decline?  I’ve been making mental notes of my “uniform” which will consist of an oversized sweater, a relaxed pant, comfortable booties, a giant scarf, topped with my Urban Outifitters hat that I’ve legit not taken off since purchasing, and a bold red lip.  I’m also debating a major haircut situation, but remain on the fence.  One that resembles Beyonce’s.  Should I bite the bullet and go for it?  What do you guys think?  Other items on the wish list are a Tibi cardigan, this Alice + Olivia coat, this Acne Studios scarf, a wear-with-everything BLK Denim sweatshirt, a turtleneck sweater from Zara (and this cardigan and this crewneck too).  I am also loving these faux leather joggers and a faux fur coatFree People jacket and Mango cocoon coat because outerwear is just as essential as what’s underneath since always on!  I already scooped up these because after embracing my sportier side last year, I’m ready to kick it up a notch.

Do you have your “uniform” picked out yet?  Get in touch with me for personal styling via Keaton Row so I can put together a lookbook(s) for you.  I’d love to help you get locked and loaded for the season.  And remember the service is free.  All you pay for is the clothes you buy!
