Lookbook: Graphic Striped Dress

Who doesn't love stripes? This Milly dress puts a modern spin on the traditional nautical stripes we've seen over and over again, yet is still classic enough to become a wardrobe mainstay.

Prompted by my recent move and inspired by The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, I have made serious strides in streamlining my wardrobe. So when it comes to buying a new piece, versatility is key. What I love about this dress is how it can be worn to so many different occasions - a nice day of shopping, a bridal shower, an evening out or a summer barbecue. The pattern and silhouette are simple enough that you can dress it up or down, depending on the accessories.

For a casual lunch on Worth Avenue, I accessorized with jeweled sandals, Dior So Real sunglasses (which I absolutely love - they give a little edge to an otherwise preppy look) and Goyard tote.

Lookbook: Spring Neutrals

Considering yesterday's snowstorm in the northeast, it is still a bit early to be dressing for spring! Nonetheless, I thought I'd provide a little spring inspiration from our recent trip to Palm Beach.  This was a great day-to-evening look that I wore for afternoon shopping along Worth Avenue (more to come on that later) and then dinner at Bice. One of my favorite, and most versatile, wardrobe essentials is a little tailored jacket that can be worn over the most basic pieces to add a bit of polish and pull the look together. Here, I paired a classic ivory tweed jacket from my days at Oscar with white jeans and a white tank top. To complement the white and ivory, I kept my accessories neutral - nude platform sandals and a ladylike top-handle bag in blush. As winter is (hopefully) about to start winding down, this is the perfect time to start working these light neutrals into your wardrobe!
