My Secret Spice

I have used this Japanese seven spice mix in about every meal as of late–it gives a great flavor that’s not too spicy, but gives a seemingly plain dish a delicious kick! I first came across it at a ramen restaurant and liked it so much that I ordered it in bulk on amazon.com. (It’s … Read More

The Relaxed Suit

I love a good pantsuit, and I’m always on the hunt for one that’s a little off the beaten path. I’ve featured this suit jacket before— I use interchangeably with these relaxed pants and my navy ankle tie pants. The exposed zipper and d-ring belt gives these pants a more casual look, but when it’s paired with a matching jacket, it … Read More

The Comfortable Commute

When I first started working in NYC, I was amazed to see on my Health App on my iPhone that I walk between 3-5 miles per work day! I commute to work on the subway, and I realized that the walk to and from my stops–not to mention the stairs I climb during train transfers–really adds … Read More

Workout Wednesday: Leg Lifts

Happy Hump Day! To celebrate, I’m channeling my inner Sir Mix-a-Lot (yes, I went there) by focusing on two exercises that tone your butt. I like doing 10-15 reps of each of these moves per side. Fit them in after a run or walk, or take 5 minutes to bust them out in your office if … Read More

Windowpane Trousers

Happy Friday! Today I’m wearing a version of my “work uniform.” I typically wear slightly funky separates that work together nicely. When I build outfits like these, I start with whatever piece I want to focus on–in this case, the windowpane trousers. As you can see, I love patterned pants. I’ve realized that you don’t necessarily … Read More

Red, White and Blue

It has been so hot lately that the thought of putting on pants in the morning is terrifying. I’ve been digging into my closet to look for skirts and I found this J. Crew skirt from last winter. I paired it with a simple white blouse and some cheetah print pumps. This T. Anthony bag … Read More

Watermelon Spritzers

It’s Friday and there’s no better way to celebrate the start of another sunny weekend than with a watermelon spritzer. You can pretty much consider it a healthy fruit juice. Makes 8 cocktails Ingredients 3 cups of watermelon 1 cup simple syrup 1/2 cup lemon juice 1/2 cup lime juice 1 liter club soda mint … Read More

Jump Around!

Like Jackie, I also enjoy the comfort and style of a good jumpsuit. Besides “putting a blazer on it,” the other key to wearing a jumpsuit to work is a solid color–save your prints for the weekend! I love the cut of this particular jumpsuit–the button accents and side pockets give it a nice structure … Read More
