Happy Weekend

Sweater: Banana Republic | Denim: Topshop | Shoes: Steven Madden (also love these)  | Bag: Chanel | Sunglasses: Celine

Happy Friday!! As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, before my trip, I picked up a few things to help keep me warm. I got this sweater  (along with this pink one) and if you're in the market for a cozy turtleneck sweater, I highly recommend this one! I love it so much, I'm thinking about getting a second one incase this one gets ruined, which is bound to happen.

Crisp in Black & White

6e Pants: Express | Turtleneck: Express | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik | Bag: Celine (borrowed from Wendy)

These photos were taken in Milan before heading off to an incredible pasta dinner. I adore an all black outfit, especially when indulging in nothing but carbs, but this time around, I broke it up by pairing it with white accessories.

I'm proud to admit that as I've gotten older and more experienced at traveling, I've become somewhat of a better packer. I focus on bringing easy pieces that can be easily transferred from day to night and worn multiple different ways. These pants and fitted black turtleneck make me feel sleek and pulled together, no matter what I'm pairing them with.

Since then, we've relocated from Milan to Paris and looking forward to spending an entire week here before heading back home. Not actually doing Paris Fashion Week, but focusing on some projects and just getting lost in this beautifully inspiring city.

Thanks for following along!

Moody in Milan

Poncho: Theory | Sweater: H&M (new collection) | Denim: H&M | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik (similar option) | Bag: Celine (borrowed from Wendy)

These photos were taken in Milan, which happened to be my first time in this beautiful city! When this trip was planned (several months ago), I never expected to not have access to my entire closet, but that turned out to be the case. As we wait for the house we're moving into to be finished (painting, some renovations, etc…) we've been going from air b&b's to our parents houses and apartments. If I'm being perfectly honest, what started out as a fun adventure has turned into being somewhat of a pain. Since all of my stuff is in storage, I've been wearing and rotating the same pieces with the addition of some new fall/winter pieces I've picked up along the way. With this European trip approaching and virtually no cold-weathered clothing, I took the opportunity to invest in some items I've been eyeing. The first piece, this oversized poncho/cape/scarf that is both glamorous and incredibly cozy. I used it as a blanket on the plane and then as a layering piece on this chilly morning. It's a bit dramatic and I especially love that I can wear it several different ways!

Black Caviar

Jewelry: LAGOS borrowed | Top: Topshop (more colors) | Shorts: Hudson | Shoes: Sarah Flint (also in in navy & crimson) | Sunglasses: Celine | Handbag: Saint Laurent

Last year, I had the great opportunity to style some beautiful pieces from LAGOS Jewelry and this time around, I'm excited to be teaming up with them again to bring to you their Black Caviar collection. The Black Caviar collection is their most innovative Caviar collection to date, compromised of sculptural and smooth ceramic Caviar beads adorned with radiant 18k gold and brilliant diamonds. 

To make all the LAGOS pieces really pop, I opted for a classic black outfit and let my accessories have the main focus. I paired a few of the Black Caviar bracelets with some of their more delicate bracelets and rings. 

You can find the LAGOS Black Caviar collection HERE.

Iconic Classics

Trench: borrowed from Burberry | Leather pants: borrowed from Burberry | Bucket Bag: borrowed from Burberry | Tee: Splendid | Shoes: Steven | Lipstick: Burberry 'Military Red' | Rings: Gabriel NY

In my opinion, there's no one that does iconic classic like Burberry! Today, I paired one of their Heritage Collection trenches with the new dreamy Bucket Bag. The bag comes in a variety of intensely rich colors from the racing green  color that I'm wearing to bitter chocolate and a classic navy.
I kept the rest of the outfit simple and let the signature pieces be the star of the show.

Warm Tones

Blazer: Topshop | Leather Skirt: Mason | Shoes: Steve Madden 'Provence' | Bag Saint Laurent (also in brown suede) | Sunglasses: Chloe | Lipgloss: Bobbi Brown Bellini

Hope you all had a great weekend!

This blazer, yet another piece I picked up from Topshop recently that I've been wearing on repeat. I already own this camel blazer from J Crew, but I like that this one has more of a 70's vibe and is slightly longer.

I'm such a sucker for a monochromatic camel/brown look, so I felt inclined to pair all of these pieces together giving it more of a modern take on a 70's inspired look.
