A Favorite Combo

Knit: Helmut Lang via Nordstrom | Leather Pants: BLK DNM  | Booties: Saint Laurent (similar pair) |  Sungalsses: Chloe | Bag: Everlane 'Petra' c/o | Lipstick: MAC Pink Nouveau 

Wearing one of my favorite combinations in life: an oversized chunky knit and leather pants. Today I'm partnering with one of my favorites, Nordstrom's Via C department and after debating between quite a few things (like this funky Helmut Lang grid top), I ended up with the pieces I'm wearing. Considering that I practically live in my black leather pants, adding another pair, especially in this rich eggplant shade, made complete sense.

TIP: when buying leather pants: they stretch out... a lot! When I first put these on, they were basically painted on. Later on in the day, they were practically a size larger. So when buying them, you want them fairly tight! I promise, they will give out. I kind of wish I had my black pair in a size smaller, since they sometimes give me "diaper butt," but it's a lesson learned!

On another note, thank you for the comments on the last post! I love reading your Halloween ideas  and as far as Gone Girl, I promise to stick it out. Also, if there are any other MUST READ books out there, would love to hear.

Repeat

Blazer: J Crew |  Pants: Rag & Bone | Cashmere Wrap: Margaret O' Leary | Tee: Vince | Pins: Vintage Chanel | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik (also in this color combo) | Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo | Sunglasses: Celine | Handbag: Celine (similar style)

Three quick things:

1. This cashmere wrap is one of the best things I own. Aside from being an ultra-luxe, oversized scarf, it also serves as a blanket, which makes for the perfect airport companion. It's not cheap, but I can assure you, it's something that will be worn forever.

2. Brainstorming on what to be for Halloween. Are you guys dressing up? If so, as what?

3. I'm incredibly late to the party, but I'm reattempting to read Gone Girl, again. I've tried before, got distracted and it never happened. Giving it another shot! Have any of you read it? What did you think?

Happy Birthday!

us2
Happy birthday to my favorite person in the entire world, my other half and my partner in crime. To the man who makes my belly hurt from laughing so much, who challenges me on a daily basis and who always keeps me on my toes. I don't know how it's possible, but I love you more today than I did yesterday! A bit sappy, but so true. Happy birthday, my love!

Charcoal

Coat: Vince (25% off with Friends & Family Sale!) c/o | Jeans: Rag & Bone (25% off with sale!) | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik 'Bipunta' Pumps (also comes in this two-tone color) | Hat: Fleamarket Find (similar) | Handbag: Celine (similar style & 25% off with sale!) | Lipstick: MAC Red mixed with MAC Ruby Woo

I need another wrap coat like I need a hole in my head, but when it comes in this rich charcoal color and happens to be one of the coziest pieces I own, room in the closet is made. Lots of closet space is not something I have, so a major cleaning and donating purge had to take place before anything new was added. It's usually a "one in, one out" policy. 

On another note, I'm sure you guys know about the Shopbop sale going on (25% off most of the site). I didn't get anything new (yet), but rather, repurchased two favovrites: these Rag & Bone legging jeans, which get worn multiple times a week and two of my favorite 'little boy tees' from Vince, since the ones I have are pretty dingy.

A Sunday in Bushwick

Earlier this year, I made it a vow to explore other parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn, other than my usual go-to's. In the city, I've been venturing up to the Upper West Side (more than I have since my days of interning at ABC Daytime) and the East Village, which has a slew of eateries on my "must try" list that I've excitedly been crossing off.  BUT, more on that later.

A couple of weeks ago, Keith and I drove out to Bushwick for some Roberta's pizza and to check out some new street art that's popped up in the last few months. Of course, taking advantage of the beautiful walls, is always a must. All in all, such a good weekend!
