Cozy Cashmere

cozy cash full BB

Each Winter, I go on a hunt for the ultimate cozy sweater.  Criteria: over-sized, super soft and luxurious.  I don’t mind a bit of a splurge if it’s a classic piece.  I went to all the usual suspects when looking for my new cozy piece, but ultimately fell in love with everything about this buttery cashmere piece from All Saints.  It’s a fantastic neutral, uber soft and really has endless styling possibilities-which I always love in any piece of clothing.

The L Word

I’ve always been a sucker for anything leopard and with the current influx of animal print accessories, I’ve been in heaven.  I fell hard for these Kenneth Cole sneaks, especially for city life.  I can’t wait to pair them with some distressed cutoffs in the Spring (please hurry back warmth), but for now, leather leggings are my go to partner in crime for my favorite print.

Sparkle & Shine

ss acc2

I’ve never been one to shy away from shiny things and blinding sparkle, which usually makes the impending New Year my favorite time to buy an over the top embellished dress for the occasion.

I decided to find my shine this year in the form of a golden blazer, coated denim and statement necklace. With parties and dinners leading up the iconic ball dropping, I found a subtle nod to my sparkle obsession struck the perfect balance.

Royal

Summertime always inspires dramatic, attention grabbing colors, and to it’s opposition, monochromatic black dominates my Winter selections.

I have always loved head to toe black for it’s ability to ooze instant chic, but adding bright statement accessories and different textures always make things interesting.  Leather leggings and a royal blue tote will be on high rotation this season!

Fall picks

cozy
It happens every year.  Cozy sweaters, buttery leathers and gorgeous booties fill my inbox as the Fall collections enter stores, while outside, it is still 95 degrees.  I can never resist that first over-sized, soft knit in the anticipation of cooler weather.  (Vince is the master of these). Regardless of the current trends, I feel there are key pieces and prints that have staying power year after year. Here are some of my favorites…

Furball

I know the minute I step off the plane in mid December on the East Coast, I will wish I had invested in all those fur lined cardi’s and sweaters.  Fortunately, my lack of decision making lead me to the perfect solution…a fur accessory.  I can literally add this cozy furball to any piece in my closet and viola…..perfection!
