A LITTLE STRUCTURE

It’s amazing how many ways I can style this metallic skirt. It’s been my summer go-to. Here, I gave it a little structure. An asymmetrical off-shoulder blouse and new everyday bag by X. Nihilo. Shapes and edges that flow and compliment one another. Speaking of structure, it feels amazing to finally spend some quality time back home in NYC. Sweltering July travels, buzzing around the world, working on location, has transitioned into a grounded beginning-of-August in NYC. My family is in town, meaning things have been madness in Casa Natalie juggling both work and family time, but I love it. August is my time to re-focus, plan, and strategize for what’s to come in fall.

A MODERN WAY OF DRESSING | TOTOKAELO

Let’s talk about taking a timeless modern statement piece, like this pair of Viden trousers from Totokaelo. I haven’t come across one that has won me over as much as this pair. Usually trousers can be ill fitting, not the right crop, the rise a bit off, or just a bit too classic that they borderline boring, or even worse . . . too office work wear. This one is the opposite . . .  super slouchy fit, high waisted yet still boyish, and longer than the typical crop, so I feel like I can work them with a girly heel to dress them up. Totokaelo, a NYC based store, is all about art meets fashion . . . embracing the untypical objects, and bring out an editorial edge to the everyday. They sell everything from Margiela, to Comme des Garcons, to Vetements, to Marni, all brands that I have applauded for their twist on timeless pieces. And there is always a new brand for me to explore when I check out the site. It’s like opening a portal to a whole new wave of fashion that you don’t typically see on the regular. But that is what makes the shop so special, everything feels unique, and one-of-a-kind. If you want something that helps you stand out from the pack, but at the same time add pieces you know you will rewear and reinterpret over and over again with time, you can find at Totokaelo.

ME AND MY MARTIN

I’ve had this beautiful striped Martin for years, and though my time is super limited when it comes to practicing, it always slips out from the corner by my bedside table to make an appearance whenever my girlfriends come over. Maybe it’s the cocktails or the good vibes, but with every hangout, there’s music. It’s funny but true friends really bring out the best in you. Inspiring you to do something you haven’t done in a while. Igniting the little flames inside of you.

SO CLASSICLY ENGLISH

London has convinced me that Dr. Martens are absolutely necessary…rain or shine…wherever I travel. They dress down my most classic of looks and are super practical. So needed once the grey patches of London rain come pouring down when you least expect it. Docs are so classically English that I couldn’t help but get myself multiple pairs. Best with a proper midi skirt, proper fuzzy knit, and extra proper English breakfast. Mayfair is what you would call posh and I absolutely loved my stay. I couldn’t help but peer into people’s homes, swooning over chandelier glistened hallways and exquisitely placed pottery, blossoming over windowsills. For my day off in London, it was exactly what I craved to do: meander. London is best by foot, or shall I say, a good pair of Docs.
