Rainy Day Essentials

With Hurricane Sandy on our tails, we—along with the rest of the east coast—spent the weekend stocking up and preparing for the wet and windy days ahead. But we like to look at the bright side of any situation—check out some of our favorite rainy day essentials. Stay dry!


Pumpkin Cocktails and Desserts

Fall is in full swing, which means we have pumpkin fever! While we love a classic pumpkin pie, we’re obsessed with the idea of incorporating the seasonal staple into a variety of desserts and even cocktails. Serve these tasty treats at your next fall fête or Halloween soiree for sweets with a sophisticated spin.

Recycle Your Halloween Costume

This year, don’t buy an expensive, one-size-fits-all outfit and risk looking like an inappropriate bumblebee at your office party. Instead, create and recycle a tasteful costume by investing in one key piece that you can re-wear by swapping a few accessories.

Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

Investment piece: fringe dress
Halloween: boa. headband. necklace. tights. gloves. heels.
Wear it again: earrings. ringclutchpumps.

Investment piece: tulle skirt
Halloween: earringsleotardbowleg warmersballet flats.
