D and the Six

Hello beautiful people! Just getting back from a weekend getaway in Toronto and I must say I had such a blast! Despite low temps (I had to buy gloves and a heavy scarf!) and a few rain showers I was able to see and do a lot in the couple of days that I spent there. It felt like I’d been visiting for the first time even though I had been a bunch of times before. What made this visit different  was that it was just me on my terms. Usually I’m heading there for a family event so the opportunities to really enjoy the city itself are always limited. I’ve been looking to get into solo travel but I was a bit nervous. A few days in Toronto was the perfect way to dip my toe in the pool and I’m so glad I did. There’s something pretty amazing about being able to just do you while you’re on vacation. I won’t bore you with a long play by play of my trip from start to finish but I will certainly share the highlights in case you are thinking of traveling there too.


Spring Style: Denim on Denim

I feel like I’m going through a slight style evolution right now. Denim has always been one of the last things I ever pick up when I shop…until recently. Typically, I avoid buying jeans because finding a great pair of jeans is much like searching for the perfect bra- it’s practically impossible! As real as the struggle is I have really opened up my palette for denim and I’m not just talking pants. Lately I’m drawn to all kinds of denim styles and there’s so much out there. I’m crushing on fringe, embroidery and beading as well as the classics.

I love this Rachel Roy outfit combo. The top is really easy to take from work to weekend and you know how much I love a style that does overtime.

When I do pick out a pair of jeans I like to go for a distressed look. This always gives an instant edge to an outfit. I love how soft this pair is so much that I’m contemplating buying the other two colors! I’d gladly welcome those additions to my closet.

Take a look below for all my Spring denim picks, including the ones I’m wearing.

Hope this satisfies your denim fix!

Hello Warm Weekends!

How about this unseasonably warm weather?! I am enjoying every moment of these spring temperatures that we’re getting on the east coast. Last weekend was so perfect for being outside. I was in Maryland visiting my dad and the temps climbed all the way above 70 degrees! I know spring is coming soon but it’s only February so this was a pleasant surprise. 

It was so nice that we ended up hanging out at Baltimore Harbor which was cool. As many times as I’ve been to MD I’ve never actually walked around that area during the day. It’s really cute with lots of shops and dining. So many people were out and about just enjoying being outdoors.

I kept it chill with a sleeveless turtleneck and chinos paired with my trusty leather jacket- which I practically live in- and my favorite cap and leopard slip ons. This was great for walking around the harbor and the 3 hour ride back to New York afterwards.

I can’t wait to have more warm weekend adventures as it gets warmer outside. How do you like to spend your weekends?
