Short story. 

Denim cutoff shorts. I like mine high-waisted, slightly frayed and worn with a tan. Dressed up with a blazer, down with a tee. Paired with heels or beat-up white cons. I'd live in them all year round if it weren't for New York winters. Here's where to find the perfect pair:

No Relation Vintage Rack upon rack of vintage Levis cutoffs. Not in New York? The $5 price tag should help negate the travel costs.

10 Ft Single By Stella Hidden beneath the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in Williamsburg, but worth the trek.

ASOS Market Place New, pre-owned and vintage Levis.

Etsy In among the scary lace-appliqué pocket numbers, there's some gems. 

Rokit Denim options for the London ladies.

The Laundry Room Rare washes with cool pocket details.

Urban Outfitters Curated so you don't have to.


Tulum & Valladolid. 

Mayan Finds in Mexico...

My three great loves: travel, food, and shopping. I recently swapped the polar vortex of the East Coast for the solar vortex of Tulum and nearby Valladolid in search of tacos, sun, sand, and some good old-fashioned retail therapy. Read the full story here on Fathom. 


Waiting for Saturday. 

Leather pants + weekend beauty rituals...

A morning with the gorgeous gals from Waiting for Saturday


Travel notes: Kerhonkson, NY.

A weekend in the woods...

With no end in sight for winter, we escaped the city for a weekend of log fires, good food, red wine and some more red wine.

Stay here (and get fresh farm eggs from the lovely neighbors next door)
