Boho in the Berkshires

Something about Fall weather brings out the boho elements of my personal style. Tunics, flowy/oversized tops, paisley print, ruffles and fringe – all seem most suitable while ushering in the cooler new season. Thankfully, boho looks continue to be ever popular this Fall. Perhaps we’re all still lamenting the loss of festival season or we’ve…

My Urban Oasis: Part II

The Wine Lounge Optimizing our small, but precious outdoor space to enjoy this summer also meant creating a cozy area to unwind in after work or on the weekends, or a place to (eventually, I hope) entertain family and friends. Since the Wine Lounge occupies the other side of our narrow terrace (located around the…

My Urban Oasis: Part I

The Sun Lounge Any amount of outdoor space in New York City is a luxury, but our terrace, with its narrow and L-shaped configuration, presented a real challenge for furnishing and enjoying it all these years. But, with all of this extra time at home, I realized it was time to give our terrace a…

My Postpartum Journey to My Prepregnacy Body

It’s hard to believe that seven months have passed since we welcomed our little angel into the world. Although these last few months have been life’s most fulfilling, they have also been the hardest. From an unexpected and painful c-section birth and recovery to baby’s hospitalization to a pandemic, time is flying by although I…

How to Execute an At Home Photoshoot

Now, more than ever, I am acutely aware of the many luxuries I once took for granted, including having a professional take photographs for my blog or to help document life’s milestones. For all of my new moms, I specifically empathize with your feeling of disappointment that this is not how you envisioned your first…

Pretty in Pleats

With everything going on in the world, it’s hard to think about anything Covid unrelated. But, this week, perhaps due to the gorgeous Spring weather and my return from maternity leave, I decided it’s time to get back to some sort of normal, albeit altered. So, I’m excited to finally share a pretty pleated look…

Trend Alert: The Shirt Jacket

Fashion week, both on and off the runways, solidified our need to try out a new trend – the shirt-jacket. But before we get into the details of this week’s look, I can’t tell you how excited I am to share my first fashion post since the baby. There’s no doubt that life and my…

Newborn Lifestyle Shoot

It’s incredible how tiny newborns are and how quickly they grow (sigh). I can’t believe its already been one month since Stephanie came to meet baby Rafa for our newborn shoot and how much he has already changed (yes, I’m already panicking about how quickly he’s growing and not so secretly hoping he stay mini…

Maternity Shoot | Look 3

I saved the best look for last. My third look for the maternity shoot was completely impromptu, but might just be my favorite of the three. I had the idea of using fabric to create a couture look and Steph arrived on the day of the shoot with an arm full of black tulle. I’ve…

Maternity Shoot | Look 2

For my second look, I wanted a clean silhouette that emphasized the bump, but slightly more glamorous than the first. To create contrast against the grey backdrop, I opted for a white off -the-shoulder bodycon midi maternity dress with ruched sides from ASOS. I was a bit nervous about the idea of a tight white…
