Highest on my shopping list right now is a versatile, lightweight tote that can carry all my belongings, and will double as a baby bag this summer. Suggestions are highly welcome! Do you guys have any of these bags?

Have a beautiful day!


I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather here in NY has finally reached summer temperatures, which makes me both happy and exhausted (being in my 8th month of pregnancy.) It was fun to relax, sleep late and go to some yummy brunches around the city this weekend, and now I am on to a crazzzzzy work week!
Hope you all have a wonderful day! and short week!

Good Morning!
I saw these Tory Burch "Coralee" flats on a woman in my building the other night, and haven't stopped dreaming about them since. I live in my TB Reva flats, and I'm dangerously close to pulling the trigger on these beauties.
What do you guys think?

Summer Totes

I recently had the pleasure of modeling handbags for my very dear friend's new line and wanted to share the gorgeous construction and versatility of the Sidney & Sons brand.
The bags are oversized, which I love and include cool details like toolbag openings and soft leather handles.

Check out Lucy's Etsy Shop for more info!

Bill Cunningham, New York

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
Sunday afternoon we decided to pop into the IFC theater to see the Bill Cunningham New York documentary. My husband and I are both fans of his photos and short commentaries on This film was so touching (especially if you live in New York) and we left the theater feeling totally inspired.

Has anyone seen it yet?

Dressing the Bump

Dressing up my baby bump has been one of the funnest parts of my pregnancy so far. I'm holding out on maternity clothes for as long as possible, and so wearing my regular dresses and tanks in creative new ways has been both challenging and fun. I also love looking to pregnant celebrities for style ideas and new ways to accessorize. Here are a few of my favorites...

Italian Wedding Soup with Chicken Meatballs.

italian wedding-1
My first taste of Italian wedding soup came in high school when I worked in a Cafe after school and sampled all the soups constantly. I was fascinated by eating tiny meatballs in a soup. I always order Italian wedding when out, but never thought to make my own until last week when I was hit with a horrible sore throat. I made several changes to this recipe, including substituting spinach with kale, pasta with white navy beans, adding 2 small chopped potatoes, generous sprinkles of cayenne pepper and replacing 1/2 the chicken stock with water. I've been eating leftovers all week and it's officially my new "feel better" meal.

It's in the details

Good Morning!
We are back from Florida and had a really glorious time down there.
It wasn't easy coming back to the cold, but I'm slowly getting back to normal life here in NY. I've missed you all TONS these past few weeks and can't wait to get all caught up.
In the meantime, this what I wish I was wearing...

happy weekend!

... and more for my wish list.
Adding this watch and this purse to my Spring wish list was a very easy decision, as I cannot get either out of my head at the moment.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll be trying extra hard to make mine linger since it's our last one in Florida for a while.

Dressing the part

I've been searching my closet for days now, trying to find some warm weather clothes to pack for our extended stay in florida (which is quickly approaching) and I'm coming up with nada. It's as if I didn't shop at all last summer !
I'm thinking of hitting the stores to pick up a few new dresses and skirts, and here is what I'm after...

long and breezy
soft prints
bold solids and long silhouettes

Any stores you think I should check out?

With Love, Nikki
