midi dress






dress: Zara // clutch: 3.1 Phillip Lim // heels: Zara // earrings: Tiffany & Co. 

I wore this dress to an event Thanksgiving weekend. I wanted something with long sleeves, clean lines and mid-length. You know, it’s November and dressing for formal events can be difficult in the winter. Though, I love everything about this dress! It’s comfortable, chic and easy to style. I added a pop of snakeskin and kept my accessories simple.

Anjolee | diamond eternity ring







dress: Armani Exchange // ring: Anjolee – diamond eternity // bag: COS // shoes: Vince Camuto // earrings: Tiffany & Co. 

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to create a custom ring through Anjolee. They are an online jewelry retailer offering customized pieces, made from diamonds, precious metals and gemstones. I was excited to look through all of their jewelry, and decided on this diamond eternity ring. All of their pieces can be customized according to preference of diamond, gemstone quality, carat size and metal. I submitted my ring size and gemstone preference (diamond/cz).  My experience with Anjolee was wonderful and the whole process took just a couple of weeks for my made-to-order ring to arrive at my doorstep.

This post was a collaboration with Anjolee. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting collaborations with Taffeta and Cedar!

tomboy chic





leather jacket: ASOS // turtleneck: Club Monaco // jeans: United Colors of Benetton // sneakers: Vince // earrings: Tiffany & Co. // lip: Dior – Lip Glow

Tomboy chic is a comfortable choice for the middle of a busy week. I like to combine pieces that have structure and clean lines with slouchy boyfriend jeans and slip-on sneakers. It’s an easy way to dress down while looking polished and put together for the office. It’ll be even better when all this snow and glacier-like ice melt away!

side-zip jumper





jumper: COS // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // earrings: Tiffany & Co. // boots: Prada 

I love the side zippers on this knit jumper. It’s a fun way to show off the crisp white button down I’m wearing underneath. I decided on a pair of ankle boots and skinny jeans, but this knit will also look great with a pair of distressed jeans and sneakers. Extra zippers are always a fun addition to any wardrobe staple!
