The Oxford Shirt: The Key To Keeping It Classic

The Oxford Shirt: Stock Up

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been spending a lot of time in Los Angeles for work (and may secretly escaping the negative temps in NYC). Figuring out my West coast wardrobe was a bit tricky. As much as I want to wear rock and roll tee shirts and fringe jackets, I’ve decided it’s best to stick with what I know best, simple and cool. Warm days and cool nights call for smart layers and breathable fabrics and with LA being the capitol of denim culture, I mostly stick to a trusty pair of jeans and a classic oxford shirt. Paired back to an elevated loafer or slipper, I find this look to not only be perfect for the warm breezes but great for lunch meetings and networking sessions as well. Whether you live out West or are escaping the chill for a warm weather vaca, a simple yet playful look like this won’t let you down.

New Years Eve Style

New Years Eve 2018: Let’s Do This (BYE 2017 lol)

Christmas & the Holidays have come and gone and it’s time to start thinking about your killer New Years Eve look. With 2017 coming through like a bull in a china shop (political arguments on Facebook, anyone?!) it’s time to ring in the New Year in style. To help you guys break down how to build your look, I’ve linked the different outfit components below…remember, when in doubt, keep things simple and chic with a clean tuxedo jacket and a crisp white shirt. For the more daring, I have some amazing printed / novelty pieces below that could be fantastic for a festive New Years soiree. I typically don’t like to spend a lot of dough on my New Years Eve look so the pieces below are steals. Let’s do this, 2018!

 

MUST HAVE PIECE #1: AN AMAZING BLAZER

MUST HAVE PIECE #2: A CRISP, CLEAN SHIRT OR SWEATER

MUST HAVE PIECE #3: A GREAT SLIM TROUSER OR JEAN

Camo Puffer: Holiday Gifting Approved

Camo is back and it’s back in a big way. While a camo pant is always a trusty staple to have in your closet, it’s time to branch out and take the print further. I teamed up with G-Star to style some of my favorite pieces available at Bloomingdale’s for the Holidays (they have a super killer buy of G-Star right now), starring this crazy cool camo down jacket (did someone say PERFECT Christmas gift?!) When styling this bad boy, consider the camo print as a cool, dark, neutral. I paired back to this awesome stretch skinny jeans and embroidered sweatshirt (both from G-Star as well) to make the look cool and sporty, perfect for your Winter weekend warrior status. Happy gifting & styling 🙂

Holiday Style: How To Wear Jeans For Thanksgivin...

How To Wear Jeans For Festive Thanksgiving Dinner Style

Dinners and parties with family, friends, colleagues…the Holiday season invites are endless and throughout the next two months I’ll be bringing you guys great Holiday styling options for your packed Holiday schedules. With the Thanksgiving holiday ​right around the corner (this week, AH!) , it’s time to nail your turkey day while staying comfortable and stylish at the same time. I usually save great trousers and patterned pants for Christmas and New Years parties, opting for a killer pair of jeans for Thanksgiving.
They key to making jeans work for your Thanksgiving look is not only to dress them up, but to make sure you’ve got a little stretch in them for that post-turkey coma comfort. I’ve partnered with 7 For All Mankind to style these Luxe Sport Authentic slim jeans from Nordstrom for Thanksgiving dinner. Not only are they INSANELY comfortable but they look awesome paired back to a chunky turtleneck sweater and wool, plaid blazer. (love this wash for dressing up and for everyday) Pair them with a dark, dressy chelsea boot to add a bit more polish and toss on a herringbone scarf to add another element of texture to the look. (Style tip: I frayed the bottom of the jeans for everyday styling, and love the rugged element of the fray in contrast with the slick chelsea boot)

Fuzzy Fall Layers & Chelsea Boots

Sherpa Hoodies: Fall Off-Duty Favorite

Fall is all about great textures and awesome layering hacks. For as much as I love to layer, it’s nice to opt for one killer piece to keep warm while looking cool. This sherpa hoodie is perfect to throw over a t-shirt and pair to your favorite ripped jeans for a perfect weekend look. (style note, it’s a bit chunky so I wouldn’t wear under a slim jacket or else you may find yourself looking a bit ‘puffy’…stick to a great puffer when layering with outerwear) Stick to your favorite gum-sole chelsea boots and you instantly have a look thats approved for pumpkin-spice, whiskey infused anything.

A kick-ass suede bomber is one of those Fall pieces that you didn’t know you needed so badly. The bomber style is the must-have silhouette of the past few season, but often hard to wear when trying to pull off a more pulled together look…enter the suede bomber. Not only will this bad boy elevate a jeans and t-shirt look, but will take your Fall style to the next level when worn over a chic monochromatic navy on navy story. Pair with suede loafers and classic accessories for a timeless, old Hollywood vibe.

Puffer Vests: Keep It Simple & Stylish

Puffer Vests: The Key To Clean & Functional Layering

Layering for Fall doesn’t have to be overly complicated, enter the puffer vest. My rule for Fall layering is to keep things clean, simple & functional. With temperatures jumping all over the place lately, I always suggest to layer functionally, making it easy to shed a layer or two without sacrificing your Autumn look. I’ve partnered with Old Navy to show you guys how I’m styling some of their newest Fall pieces. Start off by opting for a classic crewneck sweatshirt and killer pair of olive jeans. Not only will these pieces stand on their own when un-layered but they serve as a perfect canvas to start adding pieces. Throw on a classic denim jacket for a look that’s perfectly rugged yet pulled together. To top it off, I’ve added this puffer vest (which happens to be the perfect shade of maroon) with a great slim fit which will keep you from looking like the Michelin man when layered.
