Yep, the dress-over-pant trend is certainly classy and edgy. Can you believe these photos came from only a few weeks ago? The girls and I did go out in Williamsburg last night, still sporting our overworn ankle length coats and scarves. Bring on those hot, humid summers we all know and love! The tiny tank dresses. The wideleg trousers. We are certainly closer now to storing our heavy winter items to reveal all the spring happening underneath. I can finally wear this ensemble out without all the layers.
This is certainly one of my most outstanding coats in my closet. The most luxe, yet worn on always the most casual of days. A constant head turner. I’ve worn it numerous times throughout the winter, yet this is it’s first appearance on le blog…and with a bang. So, how the heck do you get away with these bold jewel tones?
I am so excited to give you a first ever, sneak peek inside my home! I bought this loft in Dumbo, Brooklyn about a year ago, and fell in love with it’s open space and amazing, iconic location. Not to mention, huge kitchen and closet (closet used more than kitchen hehe). It’s my special place to create, grow, and feel inspired! Waking up to the view of the Empire State building every morning easily gets me in that New York City groove. Enjoy this peek inside my home!

I recently had dinner with Kenneth Cole and his team at one of my favorite spots off Bowery, The Smile. I love how much thought is put into his work… from his original writing to his attention to detail with each and every piece. Truly authentic and original. Continuing to dress NYC in head-to-toe black perfection. I fell hard for this gorgeous coat. It’s fully lined and probably one of the warmest pieces I own. Luscious. Luxurious. It’s seriously this coat against the brutal cold of NYC. You can trust this bad boy will be out again during NYFW. Maybe with a black turtleneck and jeans. Something so simple will genuinely stand out amongst the crazy colorful outfits and frozen toes in stilettos that will be stomping before street style photographers. Though it’s exciting and always a ton of fun for my sister and I, thinking about fashion month already gives me the chills. Brr! For now, I’ll be tucked away in my family’s house in LA gearing up for amazing 2017…fully re-vamped and energized. I’m ready to take you guys on another exciting adventure. It only gets better from here. I can’t tell how much I love you guys.
