One Love, Jamaica

When it comes to travel, are you an adventure junkie? Or a creature of habit? I’d have to call myself something in-between. Maybe that’s why after all these years I still love Jamaica so much. It’s the Caribbean paradise that welcomes you back like an old friend even after one visit. But it also promises discoveries, both big and small, on the daily. That’s probably why we’re already planning our next trip. And it can’t come soon enough.

I Left My Heart in Jamaica

I have been going to Negril, Jamaica since 1990, with a few around-the- island forays thrown in between. It is our family Happy Place, for sure. So after a 6-year hiatus, my husband and I finally made it back. And guess what? My love for this gorgeous island (and its people!) has only grown stronger. This post is the first of two and is focusing on what I wore…mostly on the beach. Post #2 will feature travel recos. As always, one love!

Wild at Heart

Hey there. Happy New Year, and wow, the first week of January is almost over. Did you make a resolution…or two? And are you keeping them? Or is it too soon to even ask? OK, enough with the questions. I didn’t make a formal list, but one thing I’m focusing on is making 2020 a year of less holding back, more adventure. And my Wild At Heart t-shirt is just my own personal reminder to do just that. And more.

Cozy Does It

This time of year I find myself reaching into my closet or shopping the sales for cozy pieces I can mix and match. A crewneck sweater, especially in a fun design, is an easy and affordable way to add some fashion freshness to your wardrobe…and stay warm. Corduroy pants and a faux fur jacket also make the grade. 

Stripes on the Street

It was almost 50 degrees in Jersey City today, and though temps are going to drop, we’re predicted to have some of the same weather next week. Is this December? Is this Global Warming?? Without getting too political here, I just wanted to post a transitional outfit that’s all about key pieces that look (and work) as great on their own as they do all together. And it all starts with this zebra-striped midi skirt.

The Perfect Party Dress

I hope you and yours had a very Happy Thanksgiving. And that if you actually ventured into the physical madness that is Black Friday you survived! We passed two huge traffic backups into outlet malls on our way up to the cabin, and I’m not ashamed to say that I was beyond relieved to be driving on. I did not even shop online! But now holiday celebrations are going to kick into high gear. We already have 4 parties and 3 events on the calendar. So…the perfect party dress is a must. And for my money, this is it.

Pattern Clash

I don’t know if I’m all about overalls, but I am all about mixing and matching my favorite fall patterns. If that means taking a walk on the wild side, then count me in. Layering on classic houndstooth check and lovable leopard just feels right. It’s my “pattern clash” of choice, and I’d encourage you to give your own version a try.

Simple Dress, Statement Boots

As much as I get a kick out of putting together new outfit combinations, sometimes I just want to keep it minimal…but without sacrificing style. That’s why I gravitated to this simple dress. I’m loving how effortlessly elegant, and flattering, its flowy silhouette is. I stepped up the vibe with these statement boots. Their modern take on the Western trend is on point!

Favorite Fall Fashion Finds

This post is all about a few of my favorite Fall fashion finds. Some were shopped directly from my wardrobe once I finished my seasonal closet changeover, while others are new purchases already in heavy rotation. Like these high-rise cigarette jeans I’ve been wearing with everything. Seriously, I love them so much I have to stop myself from reaching for them every day. Or do I? (Spoiler alert: wearing them as I write this post!)
