Céline Resort

Three Good Coats

The Céline Resort pictures were quietly released yesterday while the world was focused on politics. I’m not a fan of the entire collection, but these three coats are forever pieces.

Must-See Exhibitions

We are having sensational fall weather, which makes museum-going so much fun. There are three exhibitions I’m excited to see this week: Agnes Martin at the Guggenheim, Kerry James Marshall: Mastery at The Met Breuer, and Charlotte Brontë : An Independent Will at the The Morgan Library & Museum.

On a side note, the Morgan Library has a fantastic gift shop.

Ski Trip

Actually, two ski trips—New England after Christmas and out West in the spring.  My ski pants need to be updated, stat.

Legging vs. Ski Pants

Knee-High

Booties have been a major story for the past few years. I love them with pants but, unless you are a twiglet, booties with a skirt can be tough to pull off.

So, for the first time in a long time, to-the-knee boots are on my list. I have my eye on this Céline pair—the shape of the heel makes them modern.

Skirt, boots, sweater, bag.

WSJ. Magazine

‘Minimal Impact: The Best of Resort’

Frankly, I’m ready for a new season of clothes—the crazy granny trend has run it’s course, and wasn’t even my thing to begin with. This upcoming WSJ. Magazine story is a breath of fresh air.

‘Redouté to Warhol: Bunny Mellon’s Botanical Art’

There are a number of exhibitions that I want to see. First up is a field trip to the NYBG where Bunny Mellon’s botanical print collection is on display—love this Andy Warhol.

The Ultimate Advent Calendar

I still get Advent calendars for my girls, but have not considered one for myself until I came across this product-filled book-like version from Diptyque. This would certainly start off the holiday season with a bang.

Beauty

Classic Scents

I’ve been hunting for a new scent. The WSJ listed five chic women who wear Chanel N°5—perhaps, a classic fragrance is the way to go.

Apple Watch Hermès

Strap Happy

Besides all of the reasons I’ve already listed here and here on why I love the Apple Watch Hermès, my newest obsession is collecting the interchangeable straps. I don’t own a bag in Blue Jean, but I wear the color on my wrist all the time—it adds the perfect bit of zip to my current run-around uniform of jeans and a navy puffer.

It Item

Snow White

It took me, maybe, 10 seconds to hit “buy” after I spied these Montelliana boots. They are also really good in Black, but I already have a similar pair.  The price is right, too.

Says they run small, I’ll report back.
