How To Style Stuart Weitzman Gladiators

There is something so cool and graphic about the Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals, I love wearing them with flouncy dresses or floral rompers. To see how I styled my Stuart Weitzman gladiators visit my posts where I wore them to Coachella and my posts from St. Croix here and here.

White Ferragamo Vara Pumps

There are some classic styles that I have fallen in love with, and this only leads to buying them up in every color. Among my vintage Ferragamo shoe collection, the Vara pumps are my absolute favorite. I recently found these never-worn vintage pumps in white! The little grosgrain bow finished off with gold hardware... and the one inch heel is so flattering. Salvatore Ferragamo still makes the Vara style today, I have always lusted after the patent pastel styles and more recently the perforated leather styles. See some of my favorites below!

A New York City Staycation

Last weekend Patrick and I decided to have a little "staycation" vacation in Manhattan, so we checked into Hotel Americano. Changing neighborhoods for the weekend really can feel like a little getaway, I loved exploring Chelsea and the Meatpacking District as if it was my new home. Each morning we spent relaxing poolside with our books and coffees, I would recommend making a lunchtime reservation at La Piscine for some bites and drinks by the pool. The hotel also has bike rentals, which we took full advantage of for an afternoon ride along the water. On our return trip up the bike trail we stopped by the Gansevoort Market for dinner and gelato.

Silk Bandana Scarf

All white with a red bandana. I always love a good neck scarf, but for some reason I never had any desire to jump on the bandana train. That is until I saw this little red bandana handkerchief in silk- it suddenly seemed so much more luxurious and I had to have it. I only wish I could find it in more colors...

How to Break In Clogs

My shoe of choice is not always the most comfortable to break in, especially in a walking city like Manhattan. I have been too eager on multiple occasions after receiving a new pair of clogs, thinking to myself, "this time it won't be thaaaat bad..." After about my tenth pair of clogs (and lots of band-aids!) I have learned some tips and tricks to speed along the process and thought it would be helpful to share my easy three step process here. Before I even take a new pair of clogs out for a test run, I make sure to follow these steps. The last few pairs I have broken in this way have left me with what feels like clogs I have been wearing for a few weeks... and everyone who loves these wooden sole shoes like me knows, broken in clogs are THE most comfortable! Simply take a moist towel and dampen the inside on the toe box area and any edges that feel like they will rub your foot. Then put on a pair of socks, not too thick as you don't want to over stretch the leather. Wear your new clogs around the house for an hour or two. Slip the pair of clogs on without the socks to check how they feel, repeat the steps until you feel comfortable enough to take them out! Et voila, no need to grab a pack of band-aids for this pair!

The Washington Mews

By far one of my favorite spots in all of Manhattan is the quaint cobblestone block called the Washington Mews. Just above Washington Square Park is a little street that can transport you back in time, it is such a peaceful place... isolated from all the storefronts, bars and fast food chains, my little escape from reality.

How To Style Swedish Hasbeens

 It is no surprise that I am a Swedish Hasbeens fanatic, I just can't seem to stop collecting them! I wear them year round... on their own in the Summer with little dresses and rompers, and when it gets chilly I love to wear my Hasbeens with tights and socks. Their chunky wood soles are perfect for rain and snow, and they are honestly my most comfortable shoes for walking around in... which I do a lot of. To see how I styled some of my favorite Swedish Hasbeens visit my post where I am wearing my Peep Toe High in Natural with a silk nautical romper. I also love my Peep Toe High in Black where I am wearing them with a white eyelet dress or my Summer time outfit with a crochet top and eyelet culottes. I also love my Braided Sky High in Gold for a fancier aesthetic. My favorite way to wear my Hasbeens in the Fall and Winter is with socks, see how I styled my Savannah High in Khaki Green and Peep Toe High in Black this way.

Cat Eye Tutorial

I rarely wear a lot of makeup, only a simple cat eye for most days. For me that is all I really like, it is classic and makes me feel confident. Sometimes, if I am feeling really special I will add a couple brushes of mascara. I have been perfecting my bold cat eye for years now, always experimenting with pens verses liquids, different angles, thicknesses, etc. By now this is my go-to method, once you have enough practice, these four steps will seem like one motion. 1. Fill in a couple millimeters of your top lid, not the entire lid unless you want that Amy Winehouse vibe. I use e.l.f. expert liquid liner, it is the best and most affordable liner I have come across. I normally stock up on 10 tubes at a time! 2. Extend a line out, either straight across for a slim cat eye, or angled upwards for a curvier look. I always draw mine towards the end of my eyebrow, stopping at the half way mark between the corner of my eye and the end of the brow. 3. This is the tricky part... starting from the end of your extended line, make a connecting line to the inner corner of your eye. This usually take me a couple strokes to get the shape just how I like it. 4. Lastly, making sure not to stray outside the lines, fill it in!
