How wonderful it is to be home for a while after weeks of traveling. Just like my home is cozy, comfortable, and familiar, those feelings were the inspiration for this week’s look. While I’m all about trying new things, it’s called signature style for a reason. My ’70s-inspired boho look is unmistakably my own with wide leg jeans, an embroidered balloon sleeve blouse, and a unique handbag that I brought back from my last trip to Mexico.
Recently, I took a trip to San Francisco where I enjoyed architecture, sunshine, and West Coast style alike. Since I was working while in the city, I knew I needed to bring along some of my tried and true business casual staples. Without shopping for new pieces, I challenged myself to do what I encourage my clients to do all the time: mix and match pieces that are already in your wardrobe to create new and interesting looks. It’s actually much easier than it may seem!
If you’re anywhere on the East Coast, you’ve been experiencing Mother Nature’s indecisiveness for about a month now. Even if I wake up to 50 degrees, I have no idea whether I’ll be shedding layers or switching to rain boots by mid-afternoon. Frustrating? A little. The perfect excuse to start wearing all of my new spring buys? Absolutely.
With Thanksgiving upon us, it’s only fitting that I post about a piece in my wardrobe that I’m most thankful for — this embroidered longline coat from Alice + Olivia. I refuse to blend into the sea of black and navy coats and this coat is my hero piece of the season. Its bright hue, intricate detailing and flattering shape are just a few of the reasons that I grab for this outer layer from my closet time and time again. What’s more? It’s so cozy. And standing up to New York City blasts of wind is a must at this time of year.
