Fall Uniform :: What to Wear

I'd love to get my hands on a big ol fur coat like the ones you'd pull out of your grandma's closet. Except one that's brand new without the mothballs, musty smell, & questionable liner. This ML Furs mink chevron fur coat, a definite investment piece, is gloriously elegant. I love how the rich brown color works with the burgundy of the satin pants, very fancy schmancy. And while we're on the subject of investment designer pieces, why not give our feet a break now and then from all of the heels and switch it up with a Charlotte Olympia flat. This army green echoes the fall-ish hues of the rest of the outfit. The texture of the grey wool Fendi bag fit right in with the bundle-up tone set in this outfit. No outfit is complete with a little icing, so this J.Crew necklace fits the bill. If I had this look in my closet, it would most surely become my uniform this Fall.

Hounds and Houndstooth








Welcome to Silverwood Park! I go in spurts with this gorgeous place. It's this pretty little park right by our house. Life gets so busy and it's pretty tucked away so sometimes I forget about it. But lately, Patrick and I are on a going-almost-every-day spurt. We're waiting to catch the leaves in their most colorful time because the view here is stunning. So far the season has been glorious. Mostly because we get fall colors with summer temps. It's the best of both worlds! I mean, we had 80-degree days this weekend. If we stay on this path, maybe we can anticipate 50-degree days for winter? Trust me, I wouldn't mind a bit.

Tartan










When prepping outfits for NYC, I knew this Tommy Hilfiger skirt had to be worn to the Tommy show. It's one of my favorite skirts, especially around this time of year. Tartan plaid is super classic and I freshened it up with an off-shoulder crop top. There's always got to be a little bling somewhere. Enter Badgley Mischka heels (c/ o Zappos) and emerald necklace. The Etienne Aigner leopard and burgundy bag fit right in with the city schoolgirl vibe.

The Tommy Hilfiger show was basically mind-blowing. Immediately upon walking in, we felt like we were at a music festival. The stage was set and ready with a full-on rock band. The turf complete with floral pathways and lights completed the ambience of a free-spirited outdoor concert. And it all came together when the models came out. Each outfit could easily have been a Coachella girl hanging out in between bands. These three military-esque outfits were my favorite. I love the structure and polish of them. And it only further confirms the notion that I need a cape for the cooler months. Stat!

If ever there was Candyland for fashion people, it was the Dennis Basso show. The feminine flounce of frocks, the lush textures and elegant embroidery… all so incredibly darling and chic. The fur looks so modern and upbeat with the new cropped and cut-off silhouette. I also adore the color palette.

Black Tie









I've been gravitating toward black and white lately. It's super classic and I love how the simplicity of color leaves room for creativity with silhouettes and textures. The combination of lace, taffeta, & beading gives this dress a very feminine overtone. I wore it to a couple of events in NYC, including one on the Upper East Side, which is where these photos were taken. Just outside of one of my favorite stores on Madison Avenue, Ralph Lauren. And just down a few blocks from the best little snacks in the city at Laduree. Which were most surely munched on with my roomie Adriana on an iconic little stoop just after we took these pictures.

Metallic Brocade









The day I wore this was one of my favorites of NYFW. Actually as I write this post I'm watching someone I met there that day now talking about swim team and Hannah's mother's arrest on Pretty Little Liars. Shay Mitchell was even more gorgeous in person than on-screen. And super nice too. I met her at Zimmerman which is a collection that majorly blew me away. There were a couple of satin pant suits that were tailored impeccably. They looked insurmountably elegant. Even more jaw-dropping were the billowing asymetrical tops with more luxe and beautiful fabrics. I was way impressed, yet again. Here, take a look at the photos I took from my spot, just right below.

Also on this day was the Mark and Estel show. It was this cool girl vibe. Like every model that walked the runway was a rockstar's daughter now livin it up in the city. And this show had a crazy surprise. When the final walk was about to start, instead of models walking down the catwalk, the designers came out with microphone and guitar, and performed one of their songs. Everyone in the crowd was lovin it. My favorite look was the white blouse with the black neck tie. It was really chic.


Hope your Monday goes beautifully!

Plaid Co-ord in Central Park











This plaid co-ord is everything. I found it at a local boutique called Cliche, the day before I left for NYC and knew immediately it had to go in my suitcase for the trip. It's a bit sixties, definitely has a preppy overtone with the plaid and the matchy-matchy element, and all around it's just a perfect fit for moi. And so is Central Park, you guys. I love this beautiful place and saw a different angle of it on this year's stroll than last year's. It's such a huge park it's fun to explore a little bit at a time.

One of the highlights of this day in NYC was seeing Naeem Khan from the second row. The looks were gorgeous. These 4 were my favorites but I could easily be sharing every single one. I love the hue of the yellow dress and how the fabric moved like ripples in a pond. And don't get me started on powder blue… Such a gorgeous color and I love the whimsical nature of this lacey dress. Which one is your favorite of these?
