everything’s gonna be “p”ine

Happy first day of SPRING!!! While I’m not yet prepared to pack up my winter coat since we’re supposed to get more snow today, I thought it was fitting to share my new favorite tee from Target that I plan to eventually rock with white jeans and sandals when the sky decides to stop snowing. Want it? Grab it here!

balancing act

Now for these jeans- one of my FAVORITE denim brands is Blank NYC. These are super comfortable, easy to “dress up” with a great pair of heels (I have my eyes on these), or dress down with flats and a plain tee. The best part about them is that I WON THEM!!! I haven’t won anything recently besides an intense game of UNO with my kiddos- so when BLANK NYC contacted me to let me know that I had won a $500.00 shopping spree with their New Year- New You Facebook contest, I was giddy. I filled up my shopping cart with 3 pairs of jeans and two tops before finally pushing the “place order” button, (yes, that’s a lot of stuff for 500.00!!) and I can’t decide which piece is my favorite. Stay tuned for more posts with my winning pieces. I bet you will want to add them to your closet too! In the meantime, grab yourself a pair of these “torn to shreds” boyfriend jeans here.


it's all pine

My necklace is the silver Rebel Pendant from Stella and Dot. It’s my go to necklace, and adds a bit of edge and polish to any look. It comes in three different metal tones too! Click here to get yours!

point of focus

My beanie (it comes in different colors, click here!) and sunglasses are from Target. I love being able to add in affordable accessories that always seem to make a look complete.


My booties are the “Harrow” from Rag and Bone and I plan to wear them until I’m 72- I love them that much. My blazer is an oldie from BCBG and it’s one of those pieces that has been worn to so many “good moments” in my life that I sometimes feel like it’s my good luck charm. Do you have one of those in your closet? Here’s to an amazing spring, whenever it decides to show up, and as always thanks for stopping by! xo, Elana

‘burb bliss

A few weeks ago we traveled to Newtown, PA to visit good friends-Erin and Laszlo- who had moved from Hoboken. After exploring (and getting lost) in their beautiful house, letting the kids play for hours in the yard, and enjoying a suburbia cookout, we bribed our husbands with cold beer so we could sneak into town and check out a boutique Erin had been telling me about since they had moved. “You will be in heaven when you see these stores, it’s a total sensory overload.”

I mean, what girl isn’t curious about a boutique when that is how a friend describes it?!

waves of grain

Since we knew we were on borrowed time (i.e. no more beer), we made it our mission to check out all four store locations under the David J. Witchell name that adDRESS (get it?:) ) everything a woman needs- hair/makeup/spa, a home goods shop, a denim sanctuary, and the most gorgeous dresses and killer separates.

The boutique at 25 South, is where I found this great top from “Young, Broke and Fabulous” on sale for…wait for it…$30!!!!!!  (originally $150!)  I matched it up with some of my recent “Unlimited” pieces from Rent the Runway. (bracelet- Elizabeth and James and earrings from Lizzie Fortunato.)

bling and a ring

i heart these

My bag is an old purchase from a store that’s no longer in business in Hoboken, and my shoes are also oldies by Miss Sixty. My boyfriend jeans are by Gap and my other ring is from another of my favorite accessory stores in Hoboken- Sedona Hand Gallery.

Lesson learned- don’t skip over the sale rack. You just might have the rest of a great look in your closet…or waiting for you at David J Witchell. Road trip anyone?
