Stepping out of my comfort doesn’t always mean trying something new or daring. I’ve been wanting to step up (or change up) my style game with a more minimal and refined approach yet with a taste of class and sophistication. Of course, I immediately gravitate towards French vibes. The French have a way of making the most minimal outfits look so rich and clean.
So, if you have followed me for quite some time, two facts should come as no surprise: I love a great print button down and I love palm trees. Well, recently, I checked out the Spring/Summer ASOS collection and immediately knew I had to get my hands on this amazing palm tree shirt. The pattern is bold enough to be a standout piece on its own and works easily for a casual fit or even a more suited vibe for running around to meetings during warmer days!
Ok, ok… I didn’t mean an actual band (although, I do enjoy great concerts). I am talking about my latest favorite style move, the camper shirt, your button down’s cooler younger cousin with style… seriously, I picked this one from Kenneth Cole and I am hooked. Gave it a more “office friendly” approach and loved the minimal classic vibes that came from it all with some simple moves….
You guys!! Fashion week came and went like a… well, New York minute. It was great to (finally!) be able to wear layers and bundle up for the cold weather!! And to say it was cold is an understatement… it was cold!! But I definitely enjoyed every minute of it… from staying cozy indoors at Hotel Indigo, Lower East Side to trekking the beautiful streets of NY, it was a trip for the books!… and, since its cooler in LA, i thought, why not do a recap of my stay!

Finally, LA is getting its well deserved winter breeze! We are a few days into January and the weather is gloomy and darker than what is expected of (always) sunny LA! Perfect excuse to wear darker shades and heavier fabrics… my favorite combo ever (blue and grey) gets the winter treatment! Continue Reading
It’s that time of year in LA… the time of year where it actually feels like winter. Although we still have sunny blue skies, the evenings feel crisp and cool and layering isn’t just a fashion statement but a must! My one go-to piece… a classic navy peacoat.
One of my goals at the beginning of this year was to travel more and travel often! Well, I have definitely been achieving that and, luckily, I have been traveling in style with my durable aluminum carry-on and luggage from Ricardo Beverly Hills. It seriously has made traveling easier, efficient and oh so stylish with its sleek and classic silver look. Continue Reading
I love wearing a great suit and this suit has been on fall rotation lately. But, like i have side before… it’s the details that make the outfit. It’s ALL in the details! This holiday, I teamed up with my good friends over at The Tie Bar to create the Essentials Box, a starter box curated with your “must have items” for any suiting occasion.

I put together this doozy of a classic layered fit that is perfect for so many occasions. The trick, warm neutral layers! Continue Reading
