I’ve driven by this wall in Los Angeles so many times by myself and thought it would be fun for an outfit post. This past weekend, my son and husband were taking me to the shopping event at J. Crew and they both pointed to it as we drive by and said “that would make a great shoot”. So we stopped and did a quick shoot in my event outfit (which included my favorite new shoes). I styled them with my latest denim obsession, New York sweatshirt and a gingham button-down.
Thank you to all who came to the event. Stay tuned for an evening event in the next month or so.

I am having a New York moment with “New York Through a Fashion Eye” by Megan Hess while wearing mostly black. This Edie top is one of my favorite silhouettes after discovering it in plaid here. This one in black and white is so versatile. I styled it with my J. Crew black toothpick jeans, J. Crew black cashmere sweater, J. Crew Ryan Sunglasses and Tod’s Driving Shoes.

I miss New York City on a daily basis. I loved my life there even if I did feel like money just fell out of my pockets when I left my apartment. Sometimes I am in shock that I have now lived in Los Angeles for eleven years. I am married to a New Yorker that has no desire to move back.
In the meantime, I love this J. Crew New York T-shirt. I featured it this summer in New York on the Vineyard and wore it on September 11 when we “visited” New York at Legoland’s Miniland in Sliding Doors. It is back in stock along with the Paris version that I featured in Cheers to the long weekend! and I’ll take Paris and the Vineyard. It is definitely time to plan some travel, but I will enjoy having my two favorite cities on my t-shirts while I dream about my next trip.
I styled my New York t-shirt with my favorite J. Crew for NET-A-PORTER coat that was previously featured in Keeping Warm in the Butler’s Pantry, red flats, jeans, sunglasses and a Sunday New York Times.

On Monday I wrote about my experience at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001 in Sliding Doors. New York is definitely one of my favorite cities in the world and it holds a special place in my heart. A friend gave me a I ♥ NY tee shirt during my visit back after I had moved to California. The anniversary of this horrific and tragic day makes me want to hug all those close to me and give New York a big hug.
The color is “Alpine Snow” by OPI. The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.
Right before I left for my vacation J. Crew came out with these “destination” art t-shirts. I had to have the New York version. I love the navy trim on the sleeves and neck and the graphics are just so quintessentially New York. I styled it with cut-off denim shorts, panama hat, sunglasses and one of my favorite pairs of New Balance for J. Crew kicks. The color is salt and gold and they go with everything. I love the gold. It is the perfect polish for a pair of white kicks. We had a leisurely afternoon at Alley’s General Store. My son could spend hours there. They have an unbelievable selection of toys, housewares, toiletries, supplies, you name it. It is a true general store. It is the oldest operating business on Martha’s Vineyard and was established in 1858. Then we headed to Oak Bluffs for a casual dinner and ice cream.
