This month I've been visiting my favorite foodie spots in NYC. And since I'm a cheese-lover, I couldn't skip a visit to Murray's Cheese. Since it's NYC, it's only fitting that we combine food and fashion. I'm wearing a NYC designer, Colovos, and visiting an iconic spot. It's combining all the things I love.
Let's start with the cheese. For me, Murray's is right off the W4th subways stop. Greenwich Village is pretty close to Brooklyn, so easy—especially when you love cheese. Murray's was founded in 1940 by Murray Greenberg. The shop has changed hands a few times over the years, now it's owned by Rob Kaufelt. The street is super charming and home to some great Italian food (like the spot co-Founded by Mario Batali, Pó).
When you visit Murray's come hungry. You can grab a melted cheese sandwich to start your visit. After you've taken the edge off, the real fun begins. Head over to the counter. The cheese experts will guide you. I like sheep and goat cheese and let the masters give me some samples. I bet you'll discover something new every time you visit.
Since this is also the month of wearing what I already own, I want to share some friends of mine. The Founders of the Colovos brand are parents at our daughters' school, and the couple started this label all about tailoring and clean lines.
I bought this leather piece this winter at a sample sale the couple offered. The craftmanship is just gorgeous and it's as comfy as a sweatshirt, yet looks super chic.I paired it with my favorite cabi jeans and some booties. The great thing about the pieces from Colovos is that you want to reach for them again and again.
Skip the Crowds and Take Your Family Skiing in Waterville Valley
After a sizable snow storm over Martin Luther King weekend, there were plenty of lift lines and skiers heading to Vermont. Amazingly, most of them drove right past an awesome resort. I'm encouraging families to skip the crowds on the next winter holiday and take a family ski trip ...read more
Keeping your New Year's resolutions
The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you ...read more
Kids in the Kitchen: Mini Banana Waffle Pies With Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce
School has started back for many (us included!), and today's Kid's in the Kitchen recipe makes for a perfect breakfast or after-school snack. We made ours for an after-school snack the other day and my second grader loved it. We call this recipe Mini Banana Waffle Pies With ...read more
You can check out the full Colovos spring collection here. This is one of the more expensive pieces in my closet, but it's exquisite and I feel fabulous when I wear it. That's when you know it's worth the splurge. I believe in getting fewer pieces that work well for me and my body type.
As I get older, I'm less likely to chase trends. I'm into chasing style. So glad you are here to enjoy the ride with me.
Fashion, cheese... it doesn't get much better than that. This month has been incredibly fun for me to share. I hope you are enjoying the tour of all the places I pick to visit in NYC. Please let me know if you stop in to any of them.
