Almost Snowed In

What to Wear Where – End of January

This week was all about casual comfort. From an almost snowed in weekend to a Robert Burns Supper, to working at home and a Friends and Family Dinner, I found myself looking for comfy, chic outfits that could take me from day to night with ease.

The start of the week took us to an official Robert Burns Supper at The Haven in JP. I struggled a bit in the morning with what to wear as I knew I would be coming right from a client meeting so jeans were not really an option.

Alas! Look what I found in my closet. I got these in the fall of 2014 while vacationing in Capri. I’ve worn them a few times with big chunky knits, but this Scottish dinner proved to be the best time to sport these Italian trousers.  I am now claiming this tartan the marker for FRA!

The rest of the week I was supposed to be in NYC for planning meetings, but winter storm Jonas and a change in a client’s schedule allowed me to stay put and work from home. #thankful

And finally, TGIF brings us to the grand re-opening of Uni, an excellent sashimi bar. There has been much press about this reinvention, so I’m very excited to test it out tonight. Our great friend Chef Ken Oringer is simply amazing. The week is ending unseasonably warmer so a pair of tried and true fall cargoes and a cropped sweater are just right.

I am a HUGE fan of Pinterest. I pin things all the time when they catch my attention for many reasons and purposes. One of my boards is called “Caught My Eye” and I refer to it just about every day for ideas. It’s a great way of tracking what looks, trends, designers and shops I like, and it helps me streamline my style and shopping.

Here are a few other looks of the week straight from my Pinterest board. When shopping in my own closet, I find it easier to build an outfit based on one piece or accessory that I want to showcase.

Look 1: Vegan leather aka pleather pants by Zara, a Gray 2-in-1 Crew by Band of Outsiders and Bone Fur Clogs from the No. 6 Store. This outfit took me through the day to sushi at night with friends. And yes, those are open back clogs, but so warm and cozy I walked all the way home.

Look 2: AG skinnies, my long Sunburst tee from the Raquel Allegra fall collection, a Figue Pom-Pom Cardigan that both my BFF Jodi and I scored this summer in the Hamptons and my all-time favorite Shearling Boots from the No. 6 Store. Winner!

Look 3: Ulla Johnson pants, an Autumn Cashmere cropped sweater and my Barneys New York Suede Booties (worn half zipped as taught to me by one of my BFF’s Celine).

Happy Friday!

Happy New Year

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

It has now been over 6 months since my last post. In that time, I am guilty of producing 6 major events – one in Nashville, three in Boston and two in NYC – and none made it to the Daily Cookie. Plain shameful.

With that out of the way, its time to start anew (again). And I have decided to make blogging a resolution. My strategy here is if I put it in writing I might stick to it. Plus I have a new team of interns that appear to be social media gurus so we are positioned to share a lot. That is your warning.

2016 promises to be a very busy year for Front Row. We have started working with a few new clients and look forward to executing our annual events too. Our events will take us to Washington DC, Boca Raton, Las Vegas and NYC. And we have a good amount of home grown ones here in Boston too.

When recently interviewing this semesters interns, I realized I was commenting a lot about themes (which you know by now we love) and truly embracing where you are to help maximize the destination event’s potential.

So this year many of our posts will be targeted at exactly that. And I would like to take this time of year for new opportunities to reinvent a fun category to the Daily Cookie – What to Wear Where. This will focus on either my day to day inspiration or what I choose or recommend to others to wear to a specific event.

We will put together outfits, guides, where to find the inspiration or pieces, a few treats and a hot list of the most anticipated events (produced by Front Row of course) for 2016.

The future is bright.
