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!

RM DENIM. We shot these pictures last week for a super fun collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff who asked me to show my take on a pair of jeans from her new denim line. Personally, I’m always on the hunt for that perfect pair of jeans that will magically transform my body into Gisele B√ľndchens (you know what I’m talking about ladies!) but I’m not willing to compromise when it comes to comfort. The verdict? The JANE jean is super comfy, fits like a glove and has that that perfect “worn and loved” feel that takes years to achieve on your own, serious favorite jeans potential! What about turning into Gisele? Well, sadly, I’m still plain ol’ me, but I did get compliments on how great my butt looked in them, so that has to count for something, right?

The jeans are available on rebeccaminkoff.com and each pair of denim sold triggers a donation to the ‘No Kid Hungry’ campaign which can connect a child in need with up to 20 meals!

NYFW. Wore this outfit to the Rebecca Minkoff s/s 13 show and even though I probably didn’t pick the best day to rock a leather skirt (hello heat wave!) I still love the way this look turned out. All of the pieces (except shoes, sunglasses + jewellery) are Rebecca Minkoff ss13!

NEWYORK. Still have tons of pictures from NYFW to post but here’s a bunch that I snapped outside the Rebecca Minkoff show. They did my hair (I’m so not used to wearing my hair up, but I kind of like the way it turned out) and I also got to pick a look from Rebecca Minkoff’s f/w 12 collection to wear to her show. I fell in love with the bright yellow dress + jacket duo the second I saw it in their showroom and topped it off with the most stunning leather jacket I’ve seen in my entire life (definitely on my must have list for f/w 12!). Ran into Andy after the show and we had about 5 mins to catch up about the fashion week madness. Right now she’s in south america for 2 months, and besides being super jealous that she’s enjoying the most amazing weather right now, I’m missing her to bits! Hope you’re having an amazing time Andy, but please come back to Europe sooon!!
