It’s funny how a masculine, oversize suit can actually make me feel more of a woman. It’s empowering to feel sexy and gentle in something that’s meant to feel tough and strong. I promise you…you do not need to show a lot of skin to feel sexy or beautiful. I took this perfect cashmere turtleneck, a lovely holiday gift from my friends at rag & bone, out to the beach to listen to the seagulls and set my intentions for the new year. The cool breeze and the sea sparkle inspires me to slow down and pay attention to my thoughts. Remember, your thoughts are powerful and so are you. Go where the wind blows you this year.
I am embracing the All-American spirit that is in my heart and soul. Rag & Bone has really mastered that All-American “can do” attitude and I’m so proud to be partnering up with them this year. There is nothing more American than this uniform of a retro sneaker, henley, and soft blue jean. These are essentials that will simply never go out of style. They will be forever lived in.
I have never been more proud to be a New Yorker. From up here, I can still feel the togetherness and love coming from inside everyone’s homes. Everyone is making sacrifices by staying home and protecting our neighbors and communities, even if it feels confusing. Let’s all keep our chin up. These little moments of sunshine with the blue skies and the East River gives me hope. There’s still beauty all around us, we just have to open our eyes and never take it for granted every again. Find something that makes you happy right now.
I was looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses with both quality and design and fell madly in love with the rag & bone x Vuarnet collaboration. rag & bone is a NYC classic from their jeans to their beautiful leather jackets. I think the key word to describe them is edgy with a masculine touch. Their love for quality and design shows with every single piece. All made with a little love of course. I was thrilled to hear that they now have these sunglasses to add to my look. They’ve combined their very classic taste in colors with Vaurnet’s French minimalism in design. The blue lenses. Yellow lenses. White frames. Black frames. So chic and universal with that tough-girl attitude. All 100% UV protected, that I can easily take them from the city streets up to the snowy mountains this winter and actually know my sunnies are working in fighting off the harsh rays. I find mirrored lenses to be such a statement look. Best with some very minimal denim on denim. With holiday travels just around the corner, these next 2 weeks are just going to be insanely jammed packed. Christmas in California is going to feel so good. This look definitely brings a bit of that California sunshine to NYC. It’s the reflective lenses and easy denim looks of mine that gives away all of my Californication. Complete with a messy low bun and a great pair of flats. Let’s just get through the NYC holiday rush!
