TWO IN ONE. The key to packing light when traveling is to bring versatile pieces that can be worn in lots of different ways and the leather jacket above is a genius example of a multipurpose item. Technically, it’s actually a leather dress, but when worn unbuttoned, it turns into this awesome, short-sleeved leather jacket. Boom, two in one!

NEW IN. Last month I did a huge closet clean out and pretty much got rid of everything I haven’t worn in the past year or two (with the exception of a few pieces with sentimental value that I just couldn’t bring myself to give up). Since that day, my focus has been on adding some missing must-haves, like for instance, a pair of classic black patent pumps. Queue the Jimmy Choo ‘Abel‘ pump. These babies took me from shows, to meetings, to parties during London fashion week without giving me a single blister and are pretty much the shoe equivalent of a little black dress! Next on my list? The perfect pair of black everyday boots..

LFW. Sorry about the radio silence guys! We arrived in Stockholm last Monday and after an intense week of meetings and trying to squeeze in dinners with as many friends as possible, I came down with a cold. We were originally supposed to head back to NY this morning but decided to extend our stay with two weeks and I’m super excited to get to spend some more time in my hometown.

Right now I’m wrapped up in 100 layers of cashmere while trying to go through all of the pictures we took in London. These ones were shot on a particularly windy day (pretty sure I actually levitated off the ground at one point) and I love how mysterious they look in black & white!

LONDON. After two cancelled flights, lots of delays and over 30 hours sans sleep, I’m finally in London and I can’t put into words how much I’ve missed this city! This morning I was finally reunited with my BFF Andy whom I haven’t seen for 6 insanely long months which we celebrated with some afternoon tea at Liberty’s. I’m only in town for a couple of days before heading to Stockholm on Monday but really wish I could stay longer. London is one of my absolute favorite cities and I’m beyond excited for this weekend.
