Worn in Denim

I'm loving these relaxed denim looks - especially the jeans in the top left corner which have been so carefully patched.  I'm planning to patch up the next pair that rips in a similar fashion.  I think it's a great way to give them new life.


Happy Holidays!

I'm enjoying a bit of time off - and hope that you are as well!  This is my first Christmas away from my family, but I am glad to be spending time with Steve's family and learning their traditions.  I'm wishing you all a relaxing holiday filled with family, friends, and good food!

The skyline in Dumbo has been really beautiful this week with the constantly changing weather.



This week I've felt so heartbroken for all of those who lost loved ones in Newtown, CT.  I can't even begin to imagine how difficult this is, and am still shocked by the events.  I have no words, and so instead I'm sharing photos from Cape Cod as I find them to be comforting.  We have friends that live in a neighboring town and their co-workers daughter was a victim.  I wanted to pass along the link to a fund which is being set up in their daughter Emilie's name in case anyone is looking for a way to show their support for the family.  USA Today also has a list of ways to help which I found through Mrs. French's blog.

I love this large Christmas tree under the archway in Dumbo.


Matisse at the Met

It's been a while since I've made it to a museum, even though I really enjoy going.  I'm definitely going to make it to this new Matisse exhibit that's at the Met through mid-March.  Aren't the colors fantastic?  I'm feeling inspired already.


Ilana Kohn Marbled Pants

You may remember me mentioning Ilana Kohn on the blog before.  I love her prints, especially her marbled designs.  I'm seriously loving these marbled pants (especially the ones on the left)- but am not sure I could pull them off!  What do you think?  Would you try this look?

Autumn on the Beach

The weather was pretty mild when we were home for Thanksgiving.  We took a nice walk to the beach which is one of my favorite things to do.  It was so calm compared to the summer rush.

Holiday Inspiration

We're trimming our tree and getting ready for the holidays.  I just love having a Christmas tree as it makes the whole apartment smell wonderful.  What are your favorite things about this time of year?
