I wanted to dress casually for this year's holiday party because when I purchase fancy outfits I never wear those items again. This year I'm relying on my accessories to dress up my look. As a year-end treat for myself I purchased a pair of Cole Haan wedges which I plan on wearing to all holiday dinners and upcoming weddings. Lastly, to pack a punch, I'm whipping out my favorite Kate Spade statement necklace.
I'm looking forward to seeing how I fare against others' holiday attire. My fingers are crossed that I'm not totally off kilter!

Nothing says summer like a meal outdoors on the water. As we New Yorkers enter in to the colder months I wanted to remember a warmer time.
This summer my family and I ate at the Bay Kitchen Bar. The food was good but it was the location that really won me over. The restaurant sits alongside a body of water and the windows and doors are left open so you can feel the breeze and look at the view as you eat.
It is the epitome of indoor outdoor dining.
I was impressed by the ceviche appetizer but found my seafood pasta entree lacking in taste. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit, if not for the food, then for the stunning vistas.
