for those gray dayz

One of these is not like the other....

I didn't realize this on the runways, but now that coat season is being kicked into gear, I'm starting to notice a trend here, the question is, "is this the IT coat of the season"? You'll begin to notice wrap coats and sweaters this season, gray or not - Fendi, The Row and Lanvin may beg to differ. There is something luxurious about the gray. Although this may be the coat of the moment, it's simple and classic and subtle detailing that will withstand the test of time.

TIP: When thinking about purchasing one, make sure you coat stays minimal. Believe it or not, the belt is what accents the coat. Make sure you look for a cocoon or draped shape.

dress this way s'il vous plait



I can never pass up a great fitting elevated basic - whether pants, shirts or sweaters, you name it, I'm all over it. When you have solid, classic, and well-fitted pieces in your wardrobe, you can't go wrong. I also believe that there is nothing better than feeling comfortable in what you are wearing.

For this DTWSVP, I'm featuring my everyday wear which people often ask me about. Believe it or not, I do have go-to pieces in my wardrobe. My general style daywear is, let's use my favorite word, effortless. During fall, you can often see me bundled in a cozy wool coat over a knit sweater, a pair of relaxed pants, Converse 1970s and a simple bag that holds my life.

case of the cozies


It's Goldilocks season right now. Not too hot, not too cold, jusssssst right! It definitely has me thinking of layers and cozying up in wool. From cashmere to merino,  it's time to get your sweater game in gear for this coming fall and winter. I feel like I'm not the only one trying to step it up. So many collections are ahead of the game, which has it made it even tougher in picking your go to cozies. The key is word here amongst my three sweater pics is effortless. Long are the days of the word flawless, guys. Who needs a snuggle buddy when you can cocoon yourselves in wool?

SIDENOTE:  I'm obsessed with the Acne Studios dress at the end. You can detach the turtleneck portion and wear it as a hood or a cowl.

draped

We are just wrapping up winter but I'm anticipating being draped in Rosetta Getty and The Row for SS15.  The Row never fails, but it was refreshing to see Rosetta Getty refine it's collection. Each line took a contemporary, minimal take on Japanese style and used different textures and textiles to create classic, easy and relaxed garments. Who said you couldn't be comfortable and remain stylish? Still biased to The Row, I'm excited to say,  Rosetta Getty is now on my radar.

THE ROW
Okay, it's been a minute.. or two or three.

But you know those times when life takes over, the times when you are a bit lost, low on creativity juice and just need time to yourself? Well that happened. It's true, you have to hit rock bottom to appreciate life and for things to get better.
It's amazing how life works. If you can wrap your head around that, that's why I've been MIA but I'm back, as is fashion week.

Yup. Quarter life crisis. Over. Let's get it.

slip on dress


I love layering, that's why spring and fall are the perfect months for me. Once the temperature rises or decreases, it takes me a while to adjust my wardrobe mentality. I love those easy, go to outfits that make you look good no matter what. Everything from having a fat day to meeting up with friends over the weekend. My favorite go to is a well draped, simple dress. Whether, t-shirt, tanks or strappy, they make for the perfect outfit that you can slip into and throw on a pair of sandals, sneakers, boots or heels. Not to mention, if it's a bit of a cooler day, pair it with any sweater, blazer or coat. It's just a matter of finding the perfect one.
