Fall is a great season for footwear, because you don't have to worry as much about function as you do in other seasons. You won't slip and fall on ice if you wear pumps like in the winter, and your feet won't be overheating if you wear close-toed shoes like in the summer. And don't even get me started on spring rain. So, as much as I love summer, I can't wait to start my fall shoe shopping. If you're right...

This weekend, I'm making the New England summer rite of passage to Martha's Vineyard. I've been looking forward to this since probably March, which means my wardrobe for the weekend has been planned for months.  Here's what I'm packing.  During the day: The vibe is pretty casual, but I still prefer to look polished. A simple, summery dress and easy-to-walk-in wedges are perfect for a Saturday spent brunching and shopping. ...

Though I'm definitely not one to buy into the whole "no white after Labor Day" thing, I do think that if summer had an official shade, white would be it. It's crisp, it's cool, and it just feels right. Need proof? Check out these stunning summer whites, all available from the retailers at Copley Place.  From top left:  1. Boyfriend jeans, J. Crew 2.

My favorite summer trends are the easy ones. The ones that are comfortable, cool, and don't take a ton of effort to pull off. This is precisely the reason I've been so into printed shorts over the last few years. You can find them in all of my favorite summer fabrics (like denim, cotton and linen), and all you need to do to make an outfit out of them is throw on a t-shirt or loose button down, and some gladiator sandals...

Banana Republic has been killing it with the designer collections lately (Milly, L'Wren Scott last year, and Roland Mouret and Issa London coming up later this year). So I was super exited to see their latest collaboration, which launched a couple of weeks ago with Marimekko (you may recognize their Unikko, or Poppy in English, print). True to the nature of the famed Finnish design house, the prints are big, graphic and...

Weddings are one of the easiest events to give a gift for, mainly because the people you're gifting have usually put together two or three lists of exactly what they want in the form of a registry. But, even registries can present gift giving conundrums. Maybe everything on the list is out of your price range, or all the "good stuff" has been taken, and you'd be left giving the couple a spatula and a few margarita...

In New England, we're serious about summer. I think it's a combination of the fact that our winters (especially this last one) are ridiculously long, but also our the proximity to some of the best coastal destinations (Nantucket, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Newport, Kennebunkport... the list goes on) anywhere in the world. Because we're so serious about enjoying our warmer months, our collective style seems to skew...

I have to admit it. Sometimes, I'm one to judge a book by its cover. I'm just a sucker for good packaging. I've been known to choose my wine by how cute the label is, or buy pricey designer candles because I like the font on the jar. It's not the best approach for everything (people, for one), but it serves me well for some of the superfluous decisions in life. Which includes beauty products. I always gravitate towards...

It finally feels like spring in New England and I couldn't be more excited. This year, I think, more than any other year, I'm really embracing the season because of the ridiculously long winter we had. I've had tulips in my house constantly since mid-March, I've already packed away all of my cold-weather boots, and I can't stop buying pastels. One of my favorite things spring this year though, is the abundance of...

I'm not sure where the tradition of dressing up for Easter in pastels and pearls came from, but I do know that I love partaking in it. In fact, I think Easter is probably the most fun holiday to dress for all year. Whether you celebrate Easter in a religious way, by going to church and having dinner with family, or simply a seasonal one, by eating peeps and hosting an egg hunt, here are a few of my favorite outfits to...
