Borrowed From the Boys

Outfit details: 10 Crosby Derek Lam blazer (similar here), Sportmax trousers (similar here and here), Akris cape (cool options here and here), Céline shoes (other options here and here), Hermés bangle, HRH Collection necklace, Balenciaga bag 

I was in NYC last weekend visiting my sister and her fam. My brother in law was kind enough to watch my little nephew so that my sister and I could do a little shopping and have a nice lunch out. I had been contemplating getting some oxfords but wasn't sure if they were my style. I tried on this black and white pair and decided to go for it. What do you think of the look?

My sis and I had a lovely lunch at Telepan on the Upper West Side. If you're in the neighborhood at brunchtime, I highly recommend the house smoked brook trout and the patty melt.


Houndstooth & Hot Pink

Outfit details: Sara Campbell houndstooth jacket and skirt (other options here and here), Valentino shoes, Saint Laurent bag, Chanel necklace and pin, Hermés scarf

I love classic black and white houndstooth but had to pop it with some pink. This jacket and skirt are old but the classics are always in style.


Fashion Plates to Benefit the National MS Society



Gather your girlfriends, take the afternoon off and join me on November 14 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel for a fashion show to benefit the National MS Society and for what is sure to be a fabulous time. Tickets are $100 and the proceeds benefit a very worth cause. It's a win/win if you ask me!

More information on this event can be found here.


Pink & Blue

Outfit details: Topshop top (old), Chanel jacket, J Brand jeans, Roger Vivier shoes, Saint Laurent bag, Hermés belt, scarf and bracelet

I wore this out and about last Saturday to run around and do some errands. I underestimated how hot it would be. It's odd to have 80+ degree weather so close to October, but I guess I'll take it. Goodness knows that come January, I'll be wishing to have the summery weather back.


Crocodiles and Capes

Outfit details: Haute Hippie blouse (similar here and here), Lafayette 148 skirt, Manolo Blahnik shoes, Tiziana clutch (similar here), Max Mara robe coat (similar here and here), Hermés bracelet, Stephanie Kantis necklace

I wore this crocodile print leather skirt and cape blouse one day last week to work and then out for the evening with friends. I did end up switching out the coat at the last minute because when I got outside in the light of day, I didn't like how the green of the coat looked with the green of the shoes. I do love this green coat though. It fills a couple of the fall trends; green and robe coats. Last year, I bought a few items from Max Mara's spring collection in varying shades of green. I loved this coat to pair with the items I bought but didn't want to pay the price. It ended up going on sale which was great as the weight is in my opinio, better as a fall coat than a spring coat.
