Tuesday, I'm off to LA for the week! I always love when I'm able to pack my bags and head out for a series of days where I get work done, meet people and do a number of other items! With the Oscars being this week, there are a number of fun activities that I will be able to attend as well! When it comes to traveling, it has to be all about comfort for sure. Since I am going in between temperatures, I love wearing a skinny jean such as the ones by LAgence. Pairing this with a simple grey tee from All Saints, allows me to fly and hit the ground running! Add a fun necklace such as this choker from Aurelie Bidermann adds such a much needed flair. I'm loving this color blocked trench in navy from Ivanka Trump!
More adornment can be found with additional items such as Azhar's black and white Contrarie ring which adds a special sparkle. Coach's Poppy collection brings in the classic horse and carriage aesthetic which has a nice rose hue to it. I'd cap this look off with Delman's patent leather ballet flat known as the Falon! I received this a few weeks ago thanks to the fab PR team at Delman! If you want to add a bit of color in, this is a great way to do it in a very simple way and allows you the utmost comfort when you're boarding your flight and then hitting the ground running!
When it comes to his style, it's ok to watch him stack on the accessories and to encourage him to continue building this portion of his closet. As I said earlier this week, it's all about the top 5's/. Guys love the simple half zip cardigan and you can never go wrong with this charcoal Polo Ralph Lauren classic and to pair it with All Saints' jeans. Everything else is a fabulous series of items that are also perfect for gifting!
I am all about the weekender bag which is great to run errands and to have as you travel throughout the holiday season. When it comes to a lush bag, you can't go wrong with this brown Gucci bag. One of my favorite jewelry designers, especially for men, is Konstantino. This necklace blends silver and gold together and I love the Pegasus in black which adds a richness and ties in the multi tones that can be worn together. Rock out more silver with David Yurman's chain bracelet. Slip on this watch by Ritmo Mundo which once again ties in our fab neutrals while popping in color and then finish the look with Tod's driver which I love in this shade and think this is a staple.
As I've mentioned before, this fall my wardrobe is all about neutral tones and playing with the hues together. It's all about playing with tones together and showing the dynamic abilities that monotone hues can have. I started off with a fab pair of lambskin leggings by Utzon whcih is the ultimate in luxe and comfort which is essential. I adore cowl neck tops and this one by Iliaria Nistri is the perfect balance of layered sheer fabric with a fab oyster shell color. With the in between color, this All Saints shrug is the perfect way to ensure that you are properly secure from the chill of fall. Of course when it comes to accessories, I am OBSESSED with Bottega Veneta's amazingly woven leather tote! A fab cocktail ring from Somchintana White is the perfect way to add pop to your hands and to add glamor to the overall look. Zoe Opaque's necklace continues the theme of rocking champagne hues with the fab drop pendant necklace. I love the antiqued look as it makes the outfit have a depth to it. Finally, slip into Camilla Skovgaard's ankle boot which has a mix of textures and hues.
Although Fashion Week starts tomorrow officially, I will be running around going to a few shows as well as doing my last minute errands in terms of getting my complete looks. So for me, Fashion Week starts in a few hours with a presentation, runway show and other tidbits. For him, he can relax and work on his projects and shake his head as I am forced to run in and out of the worst weather possible for my key time of year. It also seems like those that are US Open bound also feel the same way as their games were cancelled last night - I feel their pain but at least NYFW is not cancelled but it will make running around in my stilettos a sport of their own.
With the fall weather that is coming upon us it is allowing me to rock some layers in addition to some outerwear and for him, he can get cozy. Although he is not at the games right now, he's loving Heineken Tennis Classic by Sol Angeles' exclusive collection that was created in conjunction with Heineken and is currently available at Arthur Ashe stadium. If you're in the complex, you have to check them out as they have a number of cute items and for men's casual wear for running around, going to the gym etc this is phenomenal and apparently sales reflect that the public loves it! He pairs this with American Essential's drawstring jersey pant as he runs out to grab a bagel, get a haircut and all the quick prep he needs to be snazzy for days at the tents, media lounges and after parties. All Saints' hoodie caps the look off as we love playing with grey and to add a pop and to be truly playful in the land of blue, we finish off with these zippy Adidas Original sneakers! Happy Pre Fashion Week and it's official that we will be recapping what we're seeing starting tonight all the way until the end of next week!

I'm loving that python is for all seasons but it looks even more fabulous when it's worn in the summer! Everyone knows that I am never without python (especially Ted Rossi) and maxi dresses! It's such an easy look and one that always looks fabulous for about 90% of the events and out and about errands that I head off to! I also love that when you pop on a monochromatic look that you can add in a fun pop of color to make it all your own! This is such a great look and one that you will see me rocking throughout the season!
