Thanks for coming by.  This project served as an amazing creative outlet for both Sam (‘husband’) and me.  We started this project together shortly after we were married and it provided a much-needed distraction (and creative outlet) while we were in the process of waiting to close on our apartment.  The project resulted in what I think are beautiful photos documenting our little corner of Brooklyn, our travels, and, of course, many of my daily outfit choices.  Thank you to all of you out there who came through, especially those who left comments – they made (and still make) my day.   Though I may no longer be posting regularly, please do stop back as this will continue to be a creative space.

The pages remaining here are a curated collection of the posts of which Sam and I are most proud and we feel represent the best of


It’s about time to introduce the man behind the photography.  Sam, (‘Husband’), is a video editor for film and TV.  In his words, "The blog is an opportunity for me to work on my photography, while also attempting to wrap my head around women's fashion."   

Here are Sam's favorite five photos:

Though I've been more front and center throughout the project, I thought I'd take this opportunity to tell you a little more about myself as well.  I work for Ralph Lauren as part of the digital team.  I love living in Brooklyn and visiting the Adirondacks.  Home improving, sewing, reading, internet perusal, putting together a great outfit, good food and drink, spending time with family and friends can be counted as some of my most treasured past times.  This project has given me confidence in my choices and made me much more comfortable in front of the camera!

Here are my favorite three posts:

It went from "When is spring going to arrive??" to "Hello, summer." in a matter of a day or two last week. Every once in a while I get major DIY sewing inspiration and have to take advantage right away before I loose the ideas.
While this fabric certainly wasn't lacking in color, it lent itself well to a pop of neon.
Since it was so hot, I didn't want to carry around a big shoulder or handbag.  This oversized wallet was the perfect solution and held all the essentials (wallet, money, keys) for an afternoon out.
 I'm definitely not adverse to mixing patterns, but putting the same pattern on top and bottom felt fun and new.  I felt sort of like a Von Trapp kid.
Here's to keep in cool (and coordinated) over the next couple months.

Hat Head

So Memorial Day Weekend this year may not have been particularly summer-like this year (more rain than sun, more cool temps than warm), but it didn't make it any less nice to get out of the city and get a little closer to nature.
I recently discovered a new lipstick: Revlon Just Bitten.  It goes on like a gloss but stays more like a stain.  My ideal situation.
My solution to not doing your hair on the weekends?  A fun hat!  No, seriously, this hat is sort of too cool for me.
My solution to not really bringing the right warm clothes?  Wearing all my sweaters at once (here I have on 2 wool sweaters and a t-shirt...and I borrowed my husbands watch).
My version of a practical shoe.
Perfect for a walk on a pretty perfect weekend.

Lemon Zest

While I wouldn't say that yellow is necessarily a go-to color for me, every so often, when you find a yellow that works, it can be sort of perfect.  Between the bright color and and flowing cut of this skirt, it was pretty fun just walking around.  Especially on a beautiful spring day.

A casual, dark denim shirt was the perfect complement to the bright and ethereal skirt.

Who'd argue against pink shoes?  I mean, really?

Corrugated Color

I love an outfit that mixes styles, color, pattern, and texture.  Perfect for a bike ride around Red Hook and impromptu stop at the Red Hook Winery for a tasting.  It happened to also work quite nicely against this colorful, corrugated metal wall.

Last Ray

I was able to catch the last (very) few rays of sun after work.  It's been really nice to have daylight later in the evening, and lately I've been seeing flowers and trees just about to bloom.  It won't be much longer now before I can loose the hat and tights.  I'm looking forward to it!

St. Patrick's Day fell on a Sunday this year -- which means I sort of forgot about any sort of celebration.  But I was pleasantly surprised when as I walked out of the apartment I noticed I was wearing quite a bit of green without even realizing it (I had a green shirt on under my coat as well)! Unfortunately I spent the rest of the day doing less than celebratory things (work and chores and other Sunday sort of things) -- but at least I was wearing green!

Welcome back, Spring!  I'm ready for you to warm up the weather anytime.

Neon Daydream

On a recent sunny afternoon I decided to switch up my usual skinny jeans for a pair of '70s inspired bell bottoms and topped it off with a bright hat.  It was a welcome change -- and matched the graffiti wall nicely quite by chance.  
Aviators added to the overall '70s feel.

My favorite detail on this tote is the bright red and green on the straps.

Looking forward to more sunny days, fingers crossed for the weekend!
