All Wrapped Up

w_2

So wearing blankets out in public is a thing now, and I honestly could not be happier about it. I have to admit, I wore this ponchoesque blanket every single day this weekend and I do not regret a thing.  I blame Olivia Palmero, Cara Delevingne and all the other starlets that have been sporting the Burberry monogrammed poncho.

It’s extraordinarily versatile and easier to grab when you are running out the door then a sweater or jacket. The way it falls off the shoulders, the arms, the way it can be worn wrapped up tight or loosely draping off your elbows is so effortless and beautiful.

I choose to pair it with skinny jeans and flats on this brisk day but I can’t wait to wear it with a leather mini and some boots. It will work so well with the proportions, keeping covered up while showing some skin.It’s the perfect in-between for the “baby it’s cold outside” days and the “it’s to warm for a jacket”.  I also plan to wear it over my wool coats, which will add an extra layer of warmth, and style.

Will you be be rocking a blanket this fall? Bonus points if it has fringes.

Sunlight After The Rain

A trench coat is an absolute must in your closet. It’s a staple, especially in beige. It immediately elevates any outfit and is perfect for transitioning from season to season. The best part about this coat, other then the functionality is the versatility. It can be worn over a cocktail dress with heels as effortlessly as boyfriend jeans and sneakers.

Obviously the standard is the Burberry Trench, which set the bar and remains a cult item. But every retailer carries a version or several this time of year. So go and pick one up.

With the weather forecast showing mostly showers for the best few days, my fashion forecast will be showing this coat.

And of course,  I can’t not mention the shoes. How cute are they?! I rarely get to bring these babies out to play since I work indoors for the most part and if I am venturing outside during the rain my Hunter boots will be what I reach for. But for a quick dash these are perfect. Totally waterproof and I just love the pop of colour.

TGIF!

Phoebe Philo Gets Me

p_1

Other then sharing a love of sneakers, more specially Stan Smiths-me and Phoebe Philo have little in common. Other then of course our admiration for her (she better admire herself, the woman is a fashion genius).

She’s French, which makes her immediately untouchably cool, smart, a mother, listed in Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2014 and was awarded an “obe” by the Queen! I don’t even know what that means but I want one.

With graphic t-shirts, sweaters, sweatshirts and you-name-it being literally in every store, everyone is breaking their heads to come up with the best, puniest, funniest, ironic saying. Well my friends, this one may take the cake. Because….she does. Philo gets my love for minimalism, muted colors, simplicity and dirty hair.

I get you to Phoebe.
