ELEANOR KALLE (read on to enter the giveaway!!!!!)

I was making my way through Bloomingdales on 59th street, and I had to mentally talk myself out of browsing all the things that usually catch my eye. James had just given me 30 minutes to myself in a nearby Zara while he took the kiddos to Forty Carrots, and since I went past my “given time” I knew I had to quickly find him and help extract our sugared-up kids from the shopping mecca. I turned a corner and stumbled upon a small stand with such beautiful and unique pieces and the whole “keep walking” mentality went out the window. “I like your scarf.” An adorable brunette said to me and we started chatting. “I love this collection!” I told her.  In my mind, at that moment I was thinking how badly I wanted to buy each piece.

Fully knowing that I was going to have to come up with an excuse for James as to how 30 minutes  really means an hour, and how much I was drawn to her pieces, we exchanged cards and I made a mental note that this would be a new line to add into my “favorites” category.  A couple weeks later, I had the privilege of meeting the designer Amy, and her business partner Randi for lunch. I learned so much about these two go-getters, and loved their passion, fun personalities, and became inspired to share with as many friends as I could who and what ELEANOR KALLE was. The pieces speak for themselves and are made in NYC. Edgy, unique, conversation starters, raw, refined, and strong, are words I feel describe each piece.  Amy and Randi sent me a box of some of their favorite pieces and Danielle and I had a blast taking these pics in a taxi garage in Jersey City and then at Bin 14. I hope you fall in love and find a piece that you MUST have. The PARIS cuff (click here) and the LOLA necklace (click here) are currently in my shopping cart. Check out the cocktail CLEO ring (click here). I’m putting that beauty on my birthday wish list!

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.

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
