Lightweight Trench + White Denim

These white denim jeans have been on repeat as of late.  While I love a good blue jean, there’s something so classic about a crisp white jean – especially in the winter paired with a trench coat.  You may remember some of my past winter outfits with white denim – this one in particular will always be an all time favorite!  White just pops so nicely against a sea of dark winter clothing.  These skinny high waisted L’Agence jeans have the right amount of stretch, and are one of the few pairs of flattering white denim I’ve found. I paired my white jeans with these ultra comfy Rag & Bone booties that I’ve had for going on 6-7+ years at this point!  I’ve never even had to get them re-soled!  I can walk around the city in them for hours and they have held up through tons of horrible weather.  These black booties are also a great alternative – although I can’t speak to the quality since I’ve never worn them, but the price point is appealing! Lightweight TrenchIt’s starting to get to that point where we can all put away our thick coats and reach for lighter trenches.  This J.Ing one is almost sold out, but this L’Academie one is even cuter in my opinion!  J.Ing is a relatively new-to-me clothing brand that has a really strong outerwear selection at a super affordable price point.  I linked to a few other trenches I’m loving for this season below; like this Club Monaco one, this Anine Bing one, and this Badgley Mischka one. I always get a ton of questions about these sunnies – and sadly they’re no longer available from Sonix, BUT this pair is similar and under $100.  Fingers crossed Sonix brings the ones I have back in stock!!!  I’m dying for a lighter pair – how chic would they be in tortoise?  I also love these black + gold sunglasses. Shop my entire look below – including tons of cozy cream sweaters (like this one!) that will be perfect for the upcoming spring transition!

A Polished Everyday Outfit

TGIF!  If I had to pick one outfit to wear for the rest of my life it would look something like this; jeans, a nice T, and a blazer.  I’d throw on heels for meetings and date nights, and sandals for errands and weekends.  I never feel guilty about investing in a new pair of jeans, a plain white T, or a tailored blazer because they’re staple pieces I know I’ll wear again and again.  I love pairing jeans with literally everything, I don’t need to tell you how versatile a simple white v-neck is, and this neutral blazer looks just as good with jeans as it does with trousers, skirts and dresses! My entire outfit is from Mytheresa A website I’ve been shopping at since my early NYC days when I was looking for put-together-chic clothing items that were unique and high quality.  Mytheresa always has the perfect mix of trendy and high end designer pieces from Gucci, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and more, as well as the most essential basics from some of my favorite brands like Stuart Weitzman, Mother Denim, and Joseph.  I often find pieces that are sold out everywhere else on their site and squeal with delight when they come to my doorstep in just a few days.  This Joseph blazer is the perfect example.  I had seen it in Paris, but it was sold out in my size (FYI it runs big), but soon after found it on My Theresa!  PS the color is an even dreamier shade of taupe/light tan in person. These 3×1 jeans are soooooo insanely comfy. Also, they make your butt look amazing!  They’re stretchy, high waisted, and just that ideal everyday denim wash.  I can wear them for hours no problem, on flights, to the grocery store, and then out to dinner.  My pet peeve is a stiff, uncomfortable jean that slips down when you move. And these are the opposite!  I also have my eye on this pair from Mother. Mytheresa SaleMytheresa is having a promotion through Sunday the 17th and offering their customers $100 off orders of $700+ with code FORYOU7, and $200 off orders of $1300+ with code FORYOU8.  The promotion is the perfect excuse to splurge on that designer handbag you’ve been wanting, a beautiful dress for a special occasion, a few new pieces for your work wardrobe, or a quality pair of heels that will last forever. I added some of these pieces to my wishlist…. For dresses; this Poupette St. Barth beach coverup will be gorgeous to wear on my next vacation (remember this one that I wore all last year?), this Melissa Odabash white lace maxi is ethereal and dreamy for summer, this DVF dress hugs alllll the right curves and was made for me!!!!, this dress is the most vibrant color, and this one is great for work.  For jackets/coats; You can’t go wrong with a green army jacket, an oversized pinstripe blazer, and I’m obsessed with this classic cut coat.  And for accessories; I love these Castaner espadrilles, these Isabel Marant booties, this straw + leather tote, and this YSL shopper tote. Shop more goodies from my wishlist below + everything I’m wearing and be sure to take advantage of this weekend sale!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Currently Coveting

Spring is inching closer and closer and I have my eye on so many pretty things for the new season.  Years ago I owned these same Stuart Weitzman simple white heels, and for some reason gave them away!  Well, that was silly because white accessories have made a major come back in the past year – and I plan on wearing these all spring and summer long (I couldn’t resist re-buying them last week.)  They’re currently on sale here (FYI if you’re in between sizes, I recommend going a 1/2 size down!)  Speaking of accessories – I am loving every bag from Staud, particularly this chic brown one.  You may remember this fun macrame Staud bag that I wore all summer.  It was by far my most worn bag, and is such good quality for the price!  PS how cute is this cowhide one?! There are a ton of sales going on right now, and I love this classic Ralph Lauren coat from Mytheresa that’s included in their latest promotion.  The Intermix sale is always my favorite and I’m obsessed with these jeans, this sweater, and this skirt.  Seriously you can find so many steals in their sale section!!!  This little tweed jacket is one of them.  I’ve been finding a ton of great stuff at The Outnet, and am in heaven just looking at all of these cozy knits. I need to restock my go-to dry shampoo from R&Co which is now completely vegan, cruelty, paraben, sulfate, and mineral oil free!  It’s always nice when a product works AND checks all of those boxes – especially when you use it often. Shop the rest of my must haves for spring below!

Signs of Spring in Soho

Happy Monday! It’s almost mid March – how is that even possible?  Where does time go?!  I don’t know about you, but I’m sooooo ready for spring.  Open toed shoes, light silk blazers, lace camis, and sundresses – yes please. This grey coat has been the perfect spring transition piece.It’s lightweight, but still warm, and roomy enough to layer underneath!  I love the length – and have my eye on a few other extra long coats that are an even lighter material for the coming months.  How gorgeous is this trench?  And this one in a stunning tawny brown color? I’m wearing my go-to L’Agence distressed jeans (these are a great option for under $100), and my cozy cashmere Nili Lotan sweater.  I love a good cashmere sweater and often score great ones on sale at Nordstrom Rack.  I am eyeing this hoodie that comes in several different colors – such a nice casual piece!  Speaking of casual pieces, I always get asked about what my favorite low key/hang around the house clothing items are.  Lately I’ve been LIVING in these Cuyana sweatpants.  They’re made of the softest, stretchiest material and they look nice enough to wear out in public, but are comfy enough to sleep in (which is a rare combo!) I love the idea of pairing a tapered sweatpant with a bodysuit, bomber/leather style jacket and heel for an unconventional date night/going out look too!  You can’t go wrong with a classic black pump and these are such a beautiful pair for under $100. Is it feeling like spring where you are?!Or still freezing?  Here’s hoping it starts warming up so we can all bust out our pretty spring pieces soon!
