Basics, timeless, classic..... three words that equal my style motto. As you are learning through this little fashion journey of mine, is that I am really very simplistic with my style. I believe less is more, (unless we are talking about accessories, in that case pile on everything you have and then pile on more). But we can discuss that in another blog post. I really do believe that you can dress up most anything in your closet, especially when you are working with basic pieces that can all go together. Ok, put on my to do list of posts " 10 basics that all women should have in their closets". 6 out of those 10 I have on on this moment. can you guess them? The one I want to point out today, is the pump. The most versatile of the shoe species. Clean lines, no fuss, goes with anything. Whether your a dress girl or a jeans and t-shirt kind of a gal like me, the pump is an instant pick me up. Like folgers coffee, but not all. Just remember these fall in to the category of investment pieces, hence the whole classic, timeless thing. So if you need to start a pump fund jar then do just that, as you will want these to last. Oh and start simple with a neutral color like black, nude or grey.

Reflecting back a year ago now to my wedding day and thinking it may be cliche to say my wedding day was one of the best days of my life, but it was. The only way I know how to describe the whole day, the entire weekend is perfectly perfect. I could get all mushy and go on and on about every detail, however the saying a picture is worth a thousand words is entirely true. So I am going to keep this brief (ish). To be completely honest, I am not the girl who had ever really thought about the actual day of the wedding, the details, venue.... so when the time came to plan my wedding day I just went with what was organic to me. Intimate, simple, classic. I was also planning a wedding from across the country, so I needed simplicity during the planning process. We got married at a little oasis in the middle of New York City. The Park Restaurant brings the outdoors indoors with its brick lined floors, ivy covered walls and trees growing in the middle of the space. Ceilings resembling an Aviary, birds come flying in and out of the ceremony space. For the reception upstairs in their penthouse, which resembles a Japanese garden, My amazing florist Amy Merrick used over 1000 white lillies to line the family style tables. Votives and candlesticks of varying heights atop mirrored runners made the room feel like a wonderland. As I said I could go on and on... starting with the welcoming shabbat dinner for our out of town guests, to our pool side meet and greet of our families which had never met before to our actual wedding. Everything was pure magic. A few precious captured moments below....

Brogue season is upon us. The not too warm enough to wear sandal weather, but too warm to wear a booty. Enter the brogue. The perfect transition shoe from spring to summer and can be paired with just about anything. I typically wear a brogue, or wing tip shoe with a slouchy pair of jeans or trousers. But I finally got to wear this Isabel de Pedro dress that I ordered months ago and have been dying to wear and immediately thought to pair it with these silver lace ups for a little 40's retro vibe. And as always I have to have some sort of "borrowed from the boys" vibe in anything I wear. More style inspo below...
