Last night, Mitch and I threw our first official party in the new house, and it was amazing! We normally celebrate New Year’s every year in pajamas with our friends Barbie and Jordan and their children… but since we now have more space, we figured why not extend the invite to others?! We threw it together very last-minute, but in the end, there were over 50 people in attendance! 😂 And while I was a little worried that things would get out of control, the kids were awesome and I can’t imagine a better way to ring in 2020–with old friends and new. Today, all Mitch and I can talk about is how lucky we are to be a part of this community, and how happy we are that we decided to stay.
So this is awesome: I forgot to schedule my blog posts for the end of the year, haha. (#killinit) Sorry for going MIA for a while; currently publishing the content that should have gone up during the end of the season! 😂
I want to feature far more “small” designers on the blog this year. (Or next year, I should say. 😉)
CK Bradley has long been a favorite… and I just love that the company was started by native New Yorker Camilla Bradley during her senior year of college at Trinity in Hartford, Connecticut. (Fun fact: I wrote for the Hartford Courant for a short period of time, and I went to Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut!)
Today, she has a boutique in Newport, Rhode Island… which is where, as you might remember, Mitch and I took our babymoon before we had Lucy!
This is a little #crazy, haha, but you can sometimes get away with shopping the Crewcuts girls’ coats & jackets section of J.Crew! Benefits include major savings and a super cute selection, while drawbacks include boxy cuts (made for little girls with no hips or chests) and limited sizes that work for adults. BUT… every once in a while, something comes along that I’m like, “OKAY. Going to take a chance here.” And this coat was just that! (Hello, #60daysofplaid.)
I’m on a ROLL with outfits, guys. I don’t think I’ve posted this many in a row since… 2018? But boom. The style content is back while I’m back on the East Coast for the Sheehan/Gallagher/Tralka Christmas festivities!
I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like the holidays are so much more casual than they used to be! Sure, I do attend a handful of events that call for dressier attire. But the vast majority are very low-key, and nearly everyone is in jeans. Which is why I love owning some versatile festive pieces that can be dressed up or down.
These are the faces of two kids who wrapped up all of their holiday work TODAY… and are currently en route to New York to kick off some awesome family holiday celebrations! Truth: We’re barely alive. 😂 But we somehow did it. Feels amazing to know that we won’t need to pull any all-nighters during our travels, and that we can really kick back and enjoy our time together. :) Note: The blog WILL be up and running per usual! So please swing by every day! ❤️
In collaboration with Disney+ and ShopStyle; all opinions are my own. As always, thank you so much for supporting the partnerships that keep Kelly in the City up and running!
Dispatches from the fifth hour of today’s Frozen marathon. The gates are open, the fjord is frozen solid, and I guess I just need to let it go. I’m a dude living with four women, and from here on out you might as well forward my mail to Arendelle. But I really shouldn’t complain. 😉 We spent the last six months without a functioning television because we were waiting for a wall unit to be installed. And for those of you keeping track, this means that until this point, we did the whole infant thing–late nights and early mornings, and all–with no TV. (Worst. Idea. Ever. 😂)
But we’re back, and as luck would have it, construction on our family room was completed the exact same week as the Disney+ launch. If you’ve been living under a rock (or, like some kind of fool, without a TV), Disney+ is a miracle in the form of a new streaming service. For $6.99 per month, we now have access to over 500 movies and 7,500 hours of television. That includes hundreds of the classic Disney movies and TV shows, as well as Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic.
