Plaid Coat For Fall

Fall has finally arrived in LA and although it’s a bit late to the game, it was worth the wait – it’s gorgeous!  I somehow missed the fall foliage here last year because I stayed in Venice most of the time, but this year I ventured away from the beach, and found tons of fall foliage like this in neighborhoods around the city.  The Palisades is one of the quaintest neighborhoods in LA – and in close proximity to Malibu, Santa Monica and Brentwood.  I often head up there to meet friends for coffee or lunch in the Palisades Village! I wore this stunning grey plaid coat from Gerard Darel (also love this one!) and a chunky turtleneck underneath.  I’ve been super into plaid and houndstooth patterned coats this season and found so many good ones online.  This brown plaid one is another favorite. These Mother jeans fit like a glove and are super stretchy, high waisted and have the coolest raw hem detail.  If I had to pick my top favorite denim lines they would easily be; Mother, L’Agence and Black Orchid. This Chloe bag is splurge worthy and I reach for it often!  If you’re wanting an even closer look at it, or are wondering which designer handbag to buy – be sure to watch this video featuring my entire handbag collection.  I talk about the best investment handbags, which ones I would buy again – and which ones I wouldn’t, as well as give you insider tips/tricks for purchasing them!

10 Things To Do In NYC During The Holidays

Ahhh December in NYC!  It’s one of my absolute favorite months, especially in NYC.  The entire city feels so festive and magical!  I’m excited to be heading back in 2 days and celebrating my birthday with my nearest and dearest friends.  I wanted to share 10 things I always love doing during the holidays in the city! 10 Things To Do In NYC During The Holidays  Ice skate at Rockefeller CenterThere are tons of places to ice skate in the city, but this is definitely the most iconic.  The tree, the huge rink, and 5th Avenue decorated to the nines – ahhh so fun! Enjoy sweet treats at LadureeHead to Soho and grab a spot inside the gorgeous Laduree cafe for an afternoon of sweet treats! Get hot cocoa at The StandardThe Standard Meatpacking location also has a great little ice skating rink and they always put out the most festive decorations.  Enjoy brunch, lunch, dinner or cocktails there – or just grab a hot cocoa by the fire! Eat a decadent dinner at The Polo BarMake reservations well in advance to eat at the iconic Polo Bar restaurant.  The food is out of this world and the ambiance is so festive and chic.  Leather booths, velvet, plaid, and dark, moody lighting make this a truly holiday worthy spot. Grab brunch at Buvette and stroll around the West VillageMy go-to weekend brunch spot is Buvette.  It’s a charming French cafe nestled right in the heart of the West Village (my old neighborhood!)  After you enjoy a mouth watering croque monsieur – wander through the cobblestone streets of West Village and admire all of the townhouses. Shop along Fifth and Madison Avenue and admire the window displaysSpend the day uptown and pop into Bergdorfs, Tiffanys, Saks, Barneys and more splurge worthy shops!  The window displays are incredible! Sip on tea at The PlazaBook a table at The Plaza hotel uptown for tea and treats.  The space is gorgeous and so special for a girls afternoon! Listen to jazz at The Carlyle then have cocktails by the fire at The LowellThese two stunning hotels are right around the corner from each other and such cozy enclaves during the winter.  The Carlyle has amazing live music, and the Lowell bar – is so intimate – plus the cocktails are amazing! Grab Levain cookies and walk through Central ParkOk if you haven’t tried Levain cookies – then you are missing out on LIFE!  These cookies are insane – so thick, so gooey and famous for a reason.  Grab an assortment and wander through Central Park – you can thank me later! Stroll through Washington Square Park with a matcha from Bluestone Lane…And grab a pretzel too while you’re at it!  This is one of my favorite parks in the city – and it’s so peaceful in the middle of the day. Be sure to download my Travel App for free in the App Store or Google Play for ALL of my favorite restaurants, shops, bar, and sights in New York City – plus get tons of outfit ideas.  Just search “With Love From Kat” If you love it – please leave me a review in the App Store!

Camel Pencil Skirt Uptown

I love a good pencil skirt – especially a camel one.  Pencil skirts can be styled countless ways.  I styled it with a plaid button down (under $80!) and my go-to leather jacket for a tour of the NBC Studios (which you may have seen in my NYC Vlog!) This plaid button down has been on repeat as of late.  It’s made of such a soft, light material and looks gorgeous tucked into high waisted jeans or worn casually with joggers on the weekends.  Layer it under a vest, shearling jacket, or leather jacket like I did here.  If you don’t already have a leather jacket hanging in your closet…consider investing in this one.  The quality is incredible and you guys have seen me wear it for going on 5 years now!  It still looks brand new. I’m continuing my 25 days of giveaways through Christmas – so don’t forget to be checking my stories everyday to see how to enter :)  There are so many goodies you could win!  Enjoy your weekend!
