THURSDAY. Whenever I get sick of my clothes, I head over to Mattias closet and steal something amazing, like this peacoat I “borrowed” the other day. It’s a bit too big on me, but paired with a belt it’s just the right kind of oversized!

P.S. Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday, you guys are SO sweet!

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.

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.

NYFW. Today marks the first day of New York Fashion Week and of course, the streets are covered in ice. Ran a little late to my first show this morning (cabs during NYFW = nightmare) and probably looked like Bambi on ice while sliding my way through the crowds outside Lincoln Center, but thankfully, I made it there on time and in one piece!

Hopefully I’ll get a couple of minutes this afternoon to shoot todays outfit but until then, here’s a picture we snapped the other day. This menswear-inspired tuxedo dress from McQ Alexander McQueen is one of the latest additions to my wardrobe and I absolutely love the structured tailoring, so sleek! Played around with the silhouette and layered the dress over a pair of pants and actually really liked the result. Turns out, dresses over pants aren’t actually that bad!
