Neutral bits & bobs



I find a sneaky pre-Winter sale can sometimes be overwhelming.  It seems like it take hours to scroll through all the options and by the time my shortlist is complete, it’s quite frankly become long.  I find that using a pop up sale to snatch basics that will have staying power and get you though the season ahead, are always a good way to go. Here are my top picks for neutral gems, perfect for any closet- after perusing Shopbop’s friend & family selection (25% off sitewide with code: FAMILY25)

Watch: Nixon, Gloves: Carolina Amato, Denim: Frame, Sweater: Mason by Michelle Mason, Sunnies: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Hat: Hat Attack, Booties: Belle by Sigerson Morrison, Clutch: Clare Vivier.  



In the trench

A trench is one of those pieces that everyone should own and no one does them better than Burberry.  I’m a bit partial as the brand is one of my favorites in all departments (their cashmere scarves are saviors in Wintertime).  I went back and forth between the classic trench tan vs. the black and ultimately chose the black for a dressier feel.

Regardless of the brand, a well tailored trench is worth every penny.  It’s an essential piece, really year round, but was perfect for the windy, cool weekend we just had in NYC.

Grey Thoughts

I’m always a fan of the over-sized sweater, especially on freezing days when I tend to curl up inside them like a warm, fuzzy blanket.  Being short, I have to be careful that the sweater doesn’t wear me. I love the texture and color of this one from Zara and loved the detailing of the sides slits even more as they helped balance out the proportions on my petite frame.

lazy full

Nothing is better than a lazy weekend, especially after a grueling week giving way to a picture perfect New York weekend.  I decided to pull out my crisp white denim again, pair with loafers and an easy stripe and hit West Village for brunch followed by a slow stroll through Central Park.  It turned out to be one of the most relaxing days I’ve had in awhile-of course with my sweet hubby in tow any day is amazing 🙂

retro full B

I will always have stacks of skinny jeans in my closet, but with the wide leg being touted as this seasons silhouette, I’m happy to oblige as I love a good flare.  I chose a high waisted version from J Brand that gives the illusion of legs for days (at 5’1 this is always an added bonus).  A crisp white shirt, sky high wedges and a buttery leather jacket cap off the perfect laid back weekend look for me.
