19 inch leather gloves: Portolano. Cashmere scarf: Portolano. Blazer: Sonia Rykiel. Pant: M. Missoni. Shoes: Dr. Martens.
How incredibly dramatic are these pink leather gloves? They are made by Portolano, an innovator in the industry, founded in 1895, in Naples, Italy! They have stayed true to their craft and continue to make accessories of incredible quality. Nobody does leather better than the Italians! These gloves feel soft like butter and though Portolano sells all of the classics of leather gloves, cashmere scarves, hats, and more, I went for the extra stand-out pieces to make my look really pop. I adore these really feminine 19 inch gloves simply with a tucked oversize menswear blazer and trouser. It’s elevated and could easily been plucked off the runway at NYFW. Their black cashmere scarf is my must-have, while you’ll also find the bold blue leather gloves in my bag on the daily. This bold blue is like my everyday neutral… it goes with just about everything. For those of you who are dabbling into wearing more color on these winter days, start with the accessories. Nothing gets more classic and fun to play with than leather gloves and cashmere scarves. Now which color is your favorite?
Blue gloves: Portolano. Puffer jacket: Khrisjoy. Sweater: COS. Pant: Veronica Beard. Handbag: Marni.

I really do think that some of the best flats in the world come from Jimmy Choo. It’s the classic designs and stunning craftsmanship that keeps me going back to Jimmy Choo at Saks Fifth Avenue for more. It’s rare I find heels or luxurious leather flats that don’t need breaking in…they’re really made that well. I took two of my favorite shoe designs to the streets of Brooklyn. The Genna flats and Layton velvet flats along with the new Jimmy Choo embellished Candy clutch. The collection’s luxurious patent leathers and bold velvets are like a fresh breath of air against the gritty streets of Bushwick.
A BURST OF SUNSHINE in the Genna flat and Candy clutch:
Cropped flared jeans are a must for fall…and look best with a bare ankle and flats. I went with loud prints and eccentric details. 70’s star power indeed. Sometimes the most unexpected combinations exude so much cool.

GOING COLORFUL in the Jimmy Choo Layton flat and Candy Bag:
The moment I slipped on my new Jimmy Choo Layton flats, I felt like a princess. They’re dainty, with a beautiful pointed toe, and the perfect delicate straps. I paired it with something equally as royal as this sheer floral dress. Sure I do lean towards those really feminine statement pieces…but with a little shake of messy hair, I’m immediately brought back down to earth.

I’ve lately invested in some pieces I’ll keep forever. A denim overall mini dress is just a must-have because it is such an easy item to layer with from summer to winter. SJYP just made the perfect one. It has a little school girl flare that is super flirtatious. And not to mention the romantic See by Chloé blouse I’ve been eyeing ever since it hit the online shop at Luisaviaroma.com. The website has some of the best luxury items out there right now, like this skinny neck scarf by Saint Laurent. My neck scarf love continues to grow and grow! Just in time for fall. It’s simple, but so dramatic. It’s my little extra pop in a ton of my looks. I’m ready to stock up on more beautiful accessories that will last a lifetime.

These are the days for hair tucked into turtlenecks and perfect A-line skirts. But in the midst of bundling in your favorite knits, it all comes down to the accessories. I’m officially getting back into watches. I’ve completely ditched my overly stacked bangles and spikey rings for a more tailored look this winter. The new COACH watches are minimal, and beautiful. I’m in love with this navy piece. It’s luxe and easily makes a statement. That, and the Coach western boot from the Fall ’14 collection. I’ll be living in these classics all year round. But it’s true. Sometimes you gotta just strip down to the bare essentials. A clean slate. No fuss.
