November Necessities

It’s officially November (all month long) and it’s time to break out the big three: sweaters, scarves, and coats. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites–perfect for chilly adventures and cozy fun! November Necessities
  • Sweaters: Unsurprisingly, this fall staple is  a personal favorite. I love j.crew’s offerings for consistently well-made products that come in a pleasing array of cuts and colors. Their merino wool options are excellent, as are the cashmere ones.
  • Scarves: Capes are (supposedly) back in style and while I understand the appeal of essentially wearing a blanket, I’m not about to hop on that trend. However, there’s an easy way to get the look without committing to a purchase: get yourself a blanket scarf. You can wrap it around your neck, drape it, and belt it for a chic, slimming, and on-trend look. Fun fact: it’s still a scarf.
  • Coats: Long gone are the days of puffy, marshmallow, coats. Instead, look for fashionable options in classic cuts: pea coats (double breasted and single), robe coats that are sumptuous and stunning, and dress coats that are cut and belted for that classic Kate Middleton style.

 

Happy shopping and be sure to stay warm and stay stylish!

What to wear: Switzerland

This weekend Jordan and I are headed off to Zurich, Switzerland to meet up with a friend from the states and do some exploring. Expect pictures of our adventures, and all the chocolate and macarons I plan on eating, after the weekend but in the meantime here’s a small sample of what I’m currently cramming into my luggage.

What to wear: Switzerland

At this point in the season, I don’t leave home without my Barbour coat. It’s weatherproof, machine washable, breathable, with a plethora of pockets,  and a roomy hood. It doesn’t get any better than this British brand’s staple.  Pair that with my sunglasses, a hat and a few scarfs and at that point, it hardly matters what else I bring…

…I will however pack some sweaters, my favorite long necklace, comfy boots for walking everywhere, and a dress or two just in case! Lastly, I’ll be toting my favorite bag, the Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote. It can hold EVERYTHING from my camera, cosmetic case, my mophie juice pack for my phone, snacks, a water bottle, my passport, my wallet, more snacks….it’s a very stylish beast of a bag. Stay tuned for pictures, or keep up with us on my twitter or instagram account. Enjoy your weekend!
