I've had a fascination with ancient Egypt since 5th grade history with Ms. O'Connell. My husband works a lot of nights and so I find myself unwinding in front of the TV alone. Lately, I've been having an allergic reaction to reality TV (Housewife induced nausea) so my go-to has been documentaries. I'll watch almost anything in the documentary genre on Netflix, but if it has to do with Egypt or outer space, I'm not going to miss it--equally enchanting, but wildly different topics, that is, unless you think aliens built the pyramids.Read More

There is nothing more American than blue jeans and a white T-shirt, except for maybe Coca-Cola and baseball. Fall fashion demands denim, but this basic has undergone a very unbasic transformation. This season's blue jeans come in the form of patched jackets, 70's-inspired button front skirts, chic dresses, bags, and even heels. I find myself constantly gravitating to these upgraded denim pieces. The juxtaposition of a polished silhouette composed of the iconically laid back fabric is irresistible. When dressing up denim, it is important to elevate the look with fabulous accessories. These exquisite jewels from Melissa Lovy add the perfect, elegant finishing touch! Melissa Lovy's jewelry has a classic-meets-modern take on versatility with styles that appeal to every woman for just about any occasion. I have been living in the sleek Augusta cuff!

I live in sundresses during the summer and I wear them to the point that I never want to see them again come the following year. For this reason, 99% of my summer day dresses cost less than $100, with many as low as $30. I find most of my favorites from Zara, H&M, and Forever 21. I get such great pleasure from taking an inexpensive dress, like this beautiful one from H&M, and accessorizing it in all sorts of ways. My good friend, Shani, and I discovered this particular dress on one of our shopping excursions and both bought it in different colors. We have been having the best time sending each other mirror selfies of the different ways we style it. Isn't it a blast to see how two people can conceptualize completely unique ways to wear the same dress? Do you and your friends do the same thing?
Unlike most New Yorkers, I actually enjoy Manhattan in the summer. It's quieter, there's less traffic, and the warm city evenings feel romantic and sexy. I don't mind a Sunday afternoon at the beach, but I prefer to see the sunset over the city skyline. A loose white dress like this one from MLM is perfect for cocktails al fresco on a humid, sticky night. I love how off-the-shoulder designs leave room for lots of glamorous jewelry. I have rekindled my 90s obsession with chokers and I love the way this gold one looks with giant earrings. Wishing everyone a hot and sexy summer whether it's here, at the beach, or on a yacht in Capri. Xoxo
