Blue Paisley



I instantly fell in love with this printed sweatshirt at H&M - when I went in to buy something completely different - I'm always distracted. A nice sweatshirt is a great thing to layer with jackets that would otherwise be too light for cooler weather. This vest allows more of the print to show and be more seasonally appropriate. My black-blue shoes (which I found at an online warehouse sales at Cole Haan) are a perfect fit for the look.

Leather & Knits



There is something magical about dressing in cosy knits and going for a walk in Central Park. Here I've adapted my leather jacket for the colder weather by layering with a thick sweater and knit scarf.

Bite Me. Featuring: Givenchy & Modern Designs



THE JACKET:
About four years ago, I fell in love with this leather bomber at Coach. As a college student, it was definitely a splurge for me - but I had to have it. It turned out to be one of the best clothing investments I've ever made. Season after season, it's still going strong and the leather gets even more beautiful over time. I'll wear it right through the winter since it's well insulated to keep the warmth in. A classic shearling-collared bomber should be in everyone's closet. Invest, people.

THE NECKLACE:
I got this necklace sometime during the summer but somehow it never made it into an outfit post. I'm quite obsessed with it actually. Since it is such a statement piece, I try to keep the rest of the look simple. A white shirt and open jacket is plenty.

CROOTA Review + 15% Discount Inside




Underwear is the first thing we put on everyday, before we put on the rest of our clothes and venture out into the world. Even though the majority of the people we come into contact with throughout the day will never see what we're wearing underneath our clothes, I still think it's very important. It kind of sets the tone for the day - so shouldn't we start the day off right? Of course comfort is an important quality in an under garment but certainly not the only one. There's more to consider. I got a chance to try out some new styles from Croota, an Australian brand. (Australians seem to know a lot about underwear!) 





The first two I tried are part of the Tartan Forever line. I wanted to try them right away because I love the colorful prints and they turned out to be the most comfortable too. They stayed in place all day and I kind of forgot I had them on during the day. That says a lot - there's nothing worse than having to readjust migrating underwear all day long!

Next, I tried the 45 Degree boxer brief which I didn't find to be as comfortable. There is a seam running up the backside (which I think is to give more shape) but it felt like having a wedgie all day that I couldn't relieve. They definitely look great on but I wouldn't want to sacrifice that much comfort for a day at work. They are better for shorter time periods. Overall, I was really impressed with the brand. The materials and quality of construction are impressive, and they don't use itchy tags on the band. They offer a large amount of designs unique from other brands and they are all quite colorful and fun. 

Check out their website (Here) and use discount code CRT15TT to get 15% off your entire purchase until November 30, 2013. Standard shipping is free on all orders.

Check out my new ring...





I've always liked rings on other people, but never for myself. When I've tried them, I always found them to be uncomfortable for all day wear or that they get in the way. After reading about the rings at Modern Design (link here) and taking a look at the selection online, I decided to give one a try. I wanted something simple that I could easily wear with the many bracelets that I wear from day to day, so I chose to go with one of the polished tungsten designs. I was really surprised at how comfortable it is to wear all day long. For a such a simple design, it's crafted very well - the edges on the inside are curved so it doesn't dig into your skin. That's a pretty important detail that you don't even see, but it makes a big difference! I've been wearing it pretty much everyday, sometimes switching fingers. I also wore it in the shoot for my next outfit post, which I will post this weekend once I get everything ready.

Black, White, Black



I recently found this sweatshirt at H&M and instantly fell in love. To make the most impact of the contrast striping on the sleeves, I wanted to go all black... everything. This is my first post wearing my new sneakers from last month's designer collaboration with 3.1 Phillip Lim and Target, (See what else I got HERE) but I've been wearing them a lot! I've been inspired by monochromatic looks lately so I've been experimenting with different looks. I'm sure they will be on here a lot!

The Start of Something New: #MyJournalsJourney



I was recently inspired to do a blog series about this new notebook I got from COACH. The medium sized notebook is the perfect size to carry around with me wherever I go and jot down notes anytime. I was interested to learn how the natural vachetta leather cover will age and patina over time - so I thought I should document it. Vachetta is the most natural form of leather since it is minimally processed with no dyes, coatings, or embossing. It allows the leather to share the story of the product - where it's been, how it's handled, etc. I am excited to track and share the journey of this notebook, my journal, with others. Stay tuned for more.

Cole Haan Limited Edition SIlver Lunargrands



Ever since getting an email from Cole Haan about these limited edition Lunargrands, they've been stuck in my head. Now, I've loved Lunargrands since their launch about a year or two ago - they are probably the most perfect marriage between design and comfort that I have worn. In silver, they are on another level! I took a second look at colehaan.com and they are no longer listed on the online store. Have they sold out already? I've found some on Ebay above the retail price, so my guess is they're gone. Hopefully this will push them to produce more metallics that I CAN get my hands on.

It's Pumpkin Season


It's that time of year when all the pumpkins are out. I like this time of year not for the pumpkins, but for the weather. We can all start comfortably layering without having to break out the winter knits. I'm still wearing my biker jacket with the sleeves zipped off, this time with color packed accessories. My new sunglasses and these Cole Haan shoes are a perfect match!

Burberry Runway Made to Order SS14




After watching the Burberry menswear show for spring 2014, I ordered a pair of the sunglasses from the show. It took about two months for them to come in but it was very much worth the wait. They have this exaggerated brow look that Dior has been doing for women. I think the teal color and the polka dots will be perfect for spring/summer but I am going to get a lot of use out of them before the season comes. I would definitely order from the show again. They come personalized and way before the collection hits stores, so I'd say it's worth it.

Red Socks = Happy Feet




I had a craving for something new the other day so I stopped in to Uniqlo and found this shirt on sale for $10. Worn with jeans and brown shoes, I thought a red sock peeking out would add just the thing I needed.
