Coat: Vince (similar alternative) | Leather Pants: J Brand (also here) | Turtleneck: J Crew (30% off with code Jingle) | Shoes: Louboutin (in leo haircalf) | Handbag: Saint Laurent (in leather) | Bracelets: Brandy Pham, Hermes

Red leather pants, my type of holiday outfit! I've been debating these pants for eons, but thought "hmmm..red leather pants? How much use am I really going to get out of them?"  Well surprisingly, a lot!  Since getting them over two weeks ago, I've been wearing them non-stop. My friends would probably agree.

Here, I went for a fairly bold, red-on-red look for a holiday party. Not that I wouldn't wear this on a normal day, because I certainly would, but it's especially perfect for this time of year.

Speaking of, can you believe that Christmas is only 8 days away? Holy moly.

Trench: Ellen Tracy via Nordstrom (love this hooded version) | Leather Pants: J Brand | Scarf: similar | Shoes: Valentino (few seasons old) | Handbag: Vintage Chanel | Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo

After clumsily ruining the last trench coat that I owned, I've been on the hunt for a proper replacement. Been eyeing this one from Nordstrom and while it was an already great price, I finally bit the bullet after it went on sale. A staple trench is one of those items that my closet feels naked without. Always an easy go-to classic that requires little thinking.

Have a great Monday!

Hi!
A messy bun, a cozy sweater and  my favorite worn in denim, all made a little dressier by a good pair of heels.

Earlier this day, I had on my white converse.  It was a super casual, laid-back look, but I switched into my trusty Manolo BB's, for dinner with friends. I meant to photograph both outfit versions, but time ran out and before I knew it, it was 4:30 and the sun was already setting. Chasing the light! Story of our lives.

10_1e Boots: UGG 'Conchetta' | Coat: Theory | Turtleneck: Club Monaco | Jeans: Current/Elliott | Hat: Club Monaco (similar) | Scarf: Flea Market find.

Today, meet one of my favorite pairs of boots for the colder months! While some people might think of their signature boots when they think of UGG, for me personally, their Italian made collection line is my favorite. Aside from being well made and incredibly comfortable, their sheepskin footbed make them warm and perfect for extremely cold months. You know what they say, if your feet and head are warm, so is the rest of your body. So true! If you're looking for a comfortable, stylish and warm boot, I highly recommend these.

A quick hello from sunny Miami! I'm here for Art Basel, a week long celebration of international art & artists. The city is so full of people and energy, in all of my years of visiting Miami, I don't think I've ever seen it like this before.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
