Fall in NYC :: Autumn coat & Red sweater

Happy Monday everyone!  Back in NYC and I’m so grateful for the crisp fall air and burst of autumn colors!  I’m combining one of my favorite trends with the color of the season today… plaid with red!  Checked patterns ruled the runway and I couldn’t be happier.  This is just the beginning and I can’t wait to share more checked and plaid pieces with you!

NVLT plaid coat | Topshop balloon sleeve sweater | Steve Madden red boots | Stila ‘Fiery’ lip color

When it comes to plaid colorways, I adore this combo of red, beige, and black.  It’s a great neutral combination that pairs well with casual and dressy outfits.  And that dash of red is a beautiful way to lighten up and connect color themes with the rest of the outfit.  For me, I love pairing red with red.  The coat, sweater, boots, and lips… all anchored by the color red.

Hope you had a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!  And special thanks to Nordstrom for partnering on this post!

The Classic Print You’ll Never Get Tired Of

Is saying that I’m mad for plaid too cheesy? Because it’s true! This classic print is having SUCH a big moment right now and I can’t seem to get enough of it. I even had plaid on my NYFW nails (see them here)! When it comes to styling plaid, the rule is that there aren’t […]

Autumn in Scotland :: High boots & Embellished flats

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Two looks today.  One, layered and structured, and the other, cozy and comfy.  Both are perfect for autumn! 

| Location :: Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh |

The weather in Edinburgh is much colder than NYC.  For this trip, I knew coats, scarves, and boots were mandatory.  When it comes to boots, I love packing over-the-knee boots.  They’re actually very compact (I roll the top down and tuck it in), especially these Dolce Vita over-the-knee boots!  Also with high boots, I tend to wear thigh high wool socks underneath so it feels like I’m wearing two layers of pants!  It provides a seamless look and extra warmth.  Believe it or not, I wore these boots three days in a row!  They’re super comfortable and great for daytime and evening.  These boots are set on a comfortable block heel with a sleek point-toe silhouette that creates the illusion of a longer frame.  I also love these short boots and tall flat boots for travel, and of course, for fall!

About a 10 minute car ride from the city center, there is a beautiful oasis right by the Water of Leith.  Dean Village is a delightful contrast to the hustle and bustle of city life.  

| Location :: Dean Village, Edinburgh |

Charming, quaint, and surrounded by sounds of water and songs of whispering leaves, Dean Village is like a fairy tale come to life.  With coffee in hand and comfy in an oversized sweater and floral embellished flats, I didn’t want to leave when it was time to go.  And these Dolce Vita embellished mules matched the area so well!  The darling floral patterns of the mules has that Dean Village sweetness with the perfect dose of city toughness from the stud embellishments.  

I hope you enjoy the photography and styling!  Thank you so much for reading and special thanks to Bloomingdale’s for partnering on this post!
