Winter is Coming

11.21.2014


I'm writing this under a sea of blankets - the evidence that the weather is truly getting chilly. Winter is coming in fact it already feels like it's here. When it starts to get cold, I love to cuddle up and drink warm tea in something super cozy and warm. That's why I was so excited when Adore Me invited me to try out their November Collection of sleepwear and intimates (because you need something a tad sexy under all those layers this time of year!) I love their site, you take a fun little style quiz when you first sign up and the result is gorgeous lingerie and sleepwear personalized to your taste. My first pick was this ice blue robe that I am totally obsessed with  It's so warm and soft I honestly wish it was socially appropriate to wear this to work. I paired it with the Ruthie bra & panty with gorgeous baby blue lace that's totally winter chic. I also tried out the Mathilda PJ set which may just be the chicest thing I've worn to bed. It fits perfectly and the material is really soft. Want to win a set of your choice from Adore Me?

1 Skirt 3 Ways: Feathered Skirt

11.19.2014

I'm so excited to partnering with one of my favorite brands, Sam Edelman to create 3 looks with one of the pieces from their newest collection & 3 pairs of the shoes they're known for. I visited Sam Edelman shop in SoHo and fell in love with this flirty feathered skirt. I styled it into 3 unique outfits: Weekend Casual, Flirty Festive & Night Out. Check them out below.

For the first cozy weekend look I paired the fringe skirt with a color blocked blazer,  my favorite blanket plaid scarf and comfy & cute black loafers from Sam Edelman. The scarf adds some volume on the top and the adorable flats (similar) balance the length of the skirt.


For the second look, I wanted to create something flirty that's perfect for casual parties around the holidays. I paired a red flannel top with the fringe skirt, tights and classic flat booties from Sam Edelman.  I love the juxtaposition of the casual tee with this fun, fancy skirt. It begs for crunching through leaves and dancing the night away.

For the last look, I wanted something sexy with a slight edge. I fell head over heels (literally) with these Sam Edelman suede & mesh beauties. On top, I'm wearing a black crop top and cool moto jacket. The red beg & lips add a pop of color to the all-black ensemble. I can't wait to rock this look for a night out on the town.

I can't tell you how excited I am to be sharing my apartment tour here on the blog. I've been showing snippets of my space for the past few months, but I feel so happy to be showing you the entire place! For this post I collaborated with one of my favorite online decor sites, Lulu & Georgia. I absolutely love their collection of unique and charming products for the home. Be sure to check out the site at www.luluandgeorgia.com and use code Rach20 for 20% off your purchase! I first fell head over heels for their Bold Arrow Rug a few months ago. I love how it helps break up the kitchen and living room space and add some much needed color to my all tile floors! I have really enjoyed the process of decorating my first real apartment. There have definitely been challenges like no-painting the walls and of course the grey tile floors, but I feel like I've learned so much about myself and my interior style. The place really reflects my upbeat personality with pops of yellow mixed with calming blues and greys. My favorite room is probably my office/beauty room because it truly is my sanctuary. I love working on my blog and YouTube channel so I wanted to create a space that fostered creativity but had tons of storage for my makeup, technology and documents! I especially love the bold pink chair with the Lulu & Georgia pillow I feel like it ties the room together perfectly. Big thanks to Lulu & Georgia for working with me on this project. I can't wait to keep evolving my space over time and sharing more with you.

Fall Fun with SOREL

11.17.2014

Top & Jeans: Madewell, Boots: SOREL, Bag: Kelsi Dagger



Nothing is better on a fall day than a flannel, skinny jeans and a great pair of boots. I'm loving this new pair from SOREL, The Medina II. They're waterproof with great leather detailing and a compliment-worthy gold heel. These boots are perfect for stomping through crisp leaves or traipsing through puddles on rainy days. I paired the boots with high-waisted black jeans, a brown suede satchel and a cozy & classic black and white flannel. See my other posts with awesome SOREL boots here. P.S. I'm so excited to be hosting an event at the new SOREL pop-up shop in NYC with Lucky Magazine this Thursday, November 20th from 6-8pm at 345 W. 14th St. I hope to see y'all there!
