LA TO NYC | ZIMMERMANN

I just spent the weekend in LA, and thought it was another short trip, it feels like I never left my sweet city of angels. I love being able to come home for work, and of course, I usually always extend my stay to savor the hot sun by the pool. I’m currently on the flight I know so well, straight from LAX to JFK, just in time for my favorite\ NYFW show of the season, Zimmermann. I can’t wait to show you my look and jump straight back into NYFW craziness. My look for the show happens to be a fun play on this off-shoulder puffed blouse, just a classic midi dress version. This is timeless Zimmermann crop top and trouser that will never go out of style. I wear it so much. I took it out for a simple night on the Santa Monica Pier. This was my playground as a child. Chasing the seagulls, watching the street performers, and eating cotton candy on the dock. California is a dream and though I’m across across the country and found NYC my other home, there’s a part of me that needs the the slowness and ease of California. It’s in my blood.

CROP TOP AND PLATFORMS IN PARIS

A trip to Paris is never complete without taking a quick stop at Le Bon Marché. I took a little extra time to check out what’s new with my favorites at the moment: Valmont skincare, Dries Van Noten, and of course, Chanel. I couldn’t stop swooning at just about everything. I could stay in this department store the entire day, but my jet lag was really kicking in. With work dinners and meetings in Paris, I needed all the little cat naps that I could get so that I could get through it all without falling asleep on a couch somewhere (believe me, it’s happened.) Here I am just a few roads off from Le Bon Marché on what may be the cutest little corner in Paris, complete with cozy, hidden French bistros and fresh flower shops. I kept things light and simple for my day off: a belt bag to keep my hands free, my go-to tweed cropped jacket, and amazing platforms sandals. When Paris skies are grey, I tend to gravitate toward neutrals before ducking away in an Uber. I’ll be waiting for the sun, Paris!

Sì PASSIONE in Paris | ARMANI

I was in Paris with the Armani Beauty team to celebrate the global launch of their new fragrance, Sì Passione. We had a photoshoot with iconic photographer, Tom Munro, before entering the beautiful world of Sì Passione. The gorgeous Palace de Tokyo location was transformed into a sea of Giorgio Armani red exuding an air of femininity and strength. A shiny red staircase welcomed us to this star-studded event, with loads of interactive corners of love and fire-y passion. I’m wearing a look that I’m bound to wear over and over again: an Emporio Armani oversize bright pink blazer, high waisted black glittering trousers, and the perfect stiletto heel. My boyfriend showed me these earrings as I was just finishing up my fitting. He now knows my style now too well. Prepping for this special night was easy. The incredible Armani Beauty team came to my hotel room at the stunning Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme and gave me a smoky, sexy eye, a berry lip, and subtle twist in my hair. Paris brings out this sultry side of my style. When in Paris, I do as a French girl would. French girls keep it undone. Rather than a dress, go with a pantsuit. Rather than a red lip, go for a smoky eye. This is by far one of my favorite looks as of late. The city of love couldn’t have been more of a perfect backdrop for the launch…with a little reason to stop and remember those strong passions that keep us alive.

THE ART OF FEWER, BETTER | CUYANA

Okay, I have the bag that literally goes with everything: Cuyana’s classic shoulder bag. It’s every minimalist’s dream. Made in Italy of only the best materials, it’s a piece that looks elegant on a night on the town, or simply, biking through Brooklyn. Cuyana is a brand that I’ve been following for ages. They stand for integrity by only sourcing the highest quality materials from around the globe…each piece created by skilled craftsmen, spreading kindness along the way. They have increased the power of “fewer, better” where wardrobes are simplified with a sense of ease and confidence. This particular bag was inspired by the softness and strength of the everyday woman. It’s multidimensional, like it should always know they should be and were born to be. I’m at a time in my life where embracing the “fewer, better” mindset has really changed me for the better. I value closer, intimate friendships. I value being conscious of what I feed my body. I value making time for the little things that make my happy. I try not to overwork myself and start managing a hectic schedule in the most healthy way possible. That also factors in, shopping consciously and smarter along the way. I like knowing that each purchase has a little heart and soul. A story behind it. The brand has inspired now to go out and do something with a little integrity?! And look good while at it.
