Here's to the Night

I absolutely love the big (faux) fur coat + slinky dress pairing. I did it a few weeks back with this look and I'm doing it here with another Zara coat (p.s their faux fur selection is so good right now) and a Gypsy05 dress.

Local Finds

Accompany Bonneville Jacket (c/o), Sonia Pom Pom Clutch (c/o), Madewell Heels, Michael Stars Romper

Last weekend my husband and I made the short drive to Cape Cod - our first trip there since moving to Boston. Despite it being "off season" already, the weather was gorgeous and we were still able to hit up some delicious seafood restaurants before they all closed up for Winter. We stayed at an adorable bed and breakfast right around the corner from this market, the perfect backdrop for this outfit I'm wearing. The jacket and the clutch were sent over by the awesome team at Accompany, a New York based company with a mission to bring us unique, ethically made items from artisans all around the world. Check them out:

Designer Dialogue: T&N

Tintisha and Natasha are the New Yorkers behind the super dreamy ballet shoe line, T&N. The fab sister act accomplished a major fashion feat (no pun intended!) when they launched their line this past Summer- they proved that shoes can be both fancy and casual, chic and comfortable. Those reasons alone have me scouring their website for my next soulmate (and I have my eyes on these gold babies) but it get's better, the shoes can be personalized with your initials! See the entire collection here and read on for my interview with the ladies.
What's the story behind T&N? 
Inspired by Tintisha’s love for all things fashionable and Natasha’s keen insistence on comfort, T&N is a labor of love that combines high fashion with luxurious comfort. The futile search for an aesthetically pleasing, yet comfortable ballet flat led to the birth of the idea of providing ‘luxurious comfort’ in a ballet shoe. A shoe that is Stylish, Classy, Timeless & Versatile. 

Favorite pair from your collection? 
The beauty of our flats is that they transition really well from a casual daywear to an elegant pair for a night out in the city! Natasha: I love the crackled silver because it is such a fun color Tintisha: I’m a gold girl all the way! 

Who is the T&N  girl? 
 The t&n girl is your modern day Audrey Hepburn! She is fashionably driven and confident in who she is. In fact, the unique feature of our shoe speaks to this very aspect: a charm that hangs at the back of the shoe can be personalized with the customer’s monogram! Our fans love this aspect of our shoes – in a world where new trends appear every so often, we take fashion & make it very personal – almost as if it were timeless – by engraving their monogram on the shoe. In short, our brand essence: 'Stylish. Classy. Timeless. Versatile.' aptly summarizes the quintessential T&N girl. 

What are your go to spots in New York? 
 Tintisha: I love this little brunch place ‘Gemma’ down at Bowery, they have the most amazing pizzas and banana bread that’s to die for! The New York Library/ Bryant Park Plaza is one of my favorite places to catch a bit of ‘me’ time during a busy work day. Natasha: I’ve a bit of a sweet tooth! Max Brenner is my go to place for desserts! The Loeb boathouse in central park is a great place to end a long walk in central park!
