If I Could Redecorate…

Every once in a while I get the urge to redecorate. Since I can’t afford to right now, I’ve settled on compiling some photos and I’ll come back to them when I’m ready. It satisfies my urge so I can move onto something else, like work. Enjoy!

Winter Beanies & Head Warmers

Our warm spell in New York is going to end soon, and we’ll be hit with another snow storm in no time at all. Hopefully, this winter won’t be anything like the last (..winter ..and snow storm). BUT if it is, you should be prepared to keep your head warm… with a super cute beanie:

Style Crave: Jessica Simpson Winter Coats

Two things that make winter more bearable: red wine, and a good winter coat. Surprisingly, Jessica Simpson has a wide variety of adorable outerwear to keep you warm this upcoming season. My favorite is this tan coat with a built-in scarf:

Sophisticated, but also very warm! And no need for an additional scarf. Perfect over jeans or a dress. If you’re looking for something a little brighter, check out her Patch Pocket Coat in Lipstick:

New Obsession: La Mer Watch Wrap Bracelets

I am head-over-heels in LOVE with these watches by La Mer Collections. What a unique and fun twist on the traditional watch! Instead of putting on multiple bracelets and wraps, you just need one of these beautiful designs from La Mer.

Chic Loose-fitted Sweaters

It’s getting to that time of year when you pull out your fall wardrobe from years past. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably tired of the same old pilling sweaters you wear every day. Here are some chic new pieces to carry you through the season:

My Kind of Fall Decor

I’m always sad when fall comes around. I miss the warm sunny days even before they’re gone. There is something nice about the crisp, fall air, though, and I can certainly appreciate the beauty in the changing leaves. But the one thing that bothers me most about fall is the super-depressing home decor. I find all of the oranges, reds, and browns to be dark, burnt and dreary. If I were ever to be hired as an interior designer, I’d love to incorporate bright whites, neutrals, and blues with a just a ‘touch’ of fall. Here are some design ideas for those who agree:
