JW Anderson + Uniqlo

Cool Cords

Jo Ellison gets it right at MFW. I spy (Prada?) wide wale cords and would happily go there—such a great color. Céline did them in hot pink and dusty rose, which look great, too.

SS18 Collection

Bottega Veneta

The Bottega Veneta SS18 show was a parade of the most beautiful colors—a dusty pink belt is very sophisticated in Tomas Maier’s hands.

Not only do I love the menswear-inspired shirting in this October Vogue story, Camilla Nickerson’s styling is fun and inspirational.

Westward Ho

Cowboy boots are back and were long overdue for a revival. I posted on wanting a short pair and love these by Sartore—the color and bit of a heel are divine.

On My Mind

Packing List

I went to England last week for three days and posted this picture on Instagram with the comment “3 days, 1 bag.” When she saw it, my friend Agnes asked me to share my packing tips for the trip. Full disclosure—I didn’t go for LFW so I didn’t need loads of paparazzi-ready outfits, I was there to tour a university with my daughter. That said, here is what I packed into my beloved Jerome Dreyfuss tote:

  • Navy lightweight Zara parka (thankfully, it was freezing)
  • Grey cashmere poncho
  • Navy J. Crew cashmere crew neck sweater
  • Grey wool The Row turtleneck sweater
  • Grey Saint Laurent silk blouse that miraculously doesn’t wrinkle
  • Dark FRAME jeans
  • Army green Current/Elliott cargo pants
  • Gucci GG belt
  • Navy suede Belgian loafers
  • White Converse sneakers
  • Dopp kit
  • Laptop
  • Kindle
  • Adapters and chargers
  • Ray-BanWayfarer sunglasses
  • Brush
  • Mini umbrella

I carried a mini Givenchy Pandora crossbody for my wallet, passport, phone, reading glasses, and chapstick.

The trick is to put things into dust bags- the clothes in one, chargers another, etc. so it’s like packing building blocks.

The Gentlewoman

“24/7”

The double denim trend is definitely growing on me, especially after seeing this story in the new issue of The Gentlewoman. The dark jacket paired with jeans in a lighter wash is chic.

Denim + Shearling

Saint Laurent denim and shearling jacket

A hot item for fall is a denim jacket with shearling trim and there are lots of options and price points available. Some of my favorites are by Saint Laurent and here, Kenzo, Levi’s, Isabel Marant ÉtoileEve Denim, and FRAME  just released one today—talk about timing.

Skirt Goals

I absolutely love Kenya Hunt’s LFW look, the Loewe skirt is fantastic. Kenya is the fashion features director of Elle UK.

Thank you, Jenny, for the ID on the skirt!
