layer love


I may be the only one in New York City anticipating the season's first snowfall today--and one of the least prepared. Meaning: I didn't pack the right/enough clothes. I should've brought way more warm layers, including my just-purchased Max Mara blazer (also here), above, along with more cozy knits, such as this Mango checked puffer, this Alexa Chung turtleneck, this Topshop faux fur jacket, this All Saints sweater, this cute Tommy Hilfiger puffer, and this Asos skirt and sweater set.

good hair day


As I wear my hair up 99.9% of the time, I am constantly on the prowl for ways to enhance my 'do. Enter these cute hair ties from Dannijo to fit/freshen up the everyday bill! They also come in other prints and solids. All keepers, in my book.

leatherology



A close (stylish) friend turned me on to Leatherology's cross-body bags--and now I'm thoroughly obsessed with the entire line (wallets, jewelry organizers, duffels, eyeglass cases, pouches, etc!), because they're (a) inexpensive; (b) personalized/customizable (read: endless options); (c) make for the best (holiday) gifts; and (d) straight-up chic! The only challenge: figuring out which color combo I like best. Thoughts?!







colorful and cozy


Sweater weather is looking particularly bright right now, with this season's go-to knits rendered in eye-popping rainbow hues. (P.S. The more hand-knit looking, like the one-of-a-kind one, above, the chicer!) I'd like to step out--and banish winter blues--in these sumptuous sweaters by Novis (similar to above),  J.Crew (30% off this and everything right now!), The Knitter, Topshop, Shein (the lighter one), Storets, and Prada.

let it slip

slip skirt trend

Here is one skirt--and all the reasons to buy it! I love the various ways it works: with flats, boots, slouchy sweaters, sophisticated button-downs, casually and festively. And its slinky, bias cut is universally flattering. I also adore these other ones that are similar from Anine Bing, Reformation, T by Alexander Wang, and Valencia & Vine.



eyewitness news


In Rome I explored a few hidden treasures, including the not-open-to-the-public Bagno di Diana, housed in the private apartments of Palazzo Doria Pamphilj al Corso, and the breathtaking terrace at Hotel Eitch Borromini (a palace built in the 17th century serving the best cacio e peppe ever). Another major thing I discovered: Shiseido's Benefiance Eye Mask! Okay, not Roman at all, but colossally impressive, in my book! I was exhausted before I even boarded the plane to Rome, and the pasta and wine didn't help my jet lagged-appearance. But, I'm telling you this under-eye treatment made a monumental difference. I have a hunch that I'm late to the party on this one, but just in case there are other stragglers out there, you must know this works magic!

traveling pants


For the last four days, I (and seven dear friends) have been running around Rome in the rain, relying on jeans to get us from the Vatican to Bibiloteca Angelica to the US Ambassador's residence (Hel-lo!) and then some. On average, we each brought 2 pairs--our favorites, which we knew would work everywhere and with everything. I asked my trusty friends to share their beloved go-to's, so you too could make them yours. They include these by Frame (mine), Re/Done, Mother, Everlane, Levi's, and AGOLDE.

wild life


Yes, scarecrows and skeletons loomed about last night, but it was the tigers, leopards and zebras that really tricked out my Halloween! At a friend's packed-to-the-gills party, attendees stylishly turned up in this season's chic animal-print dresses that looked festively on point (read: my kind of costume!). I've spotted a handful of amazing specimens lately that will intrigue you, too, including this, this and this from Asos, along with with this H&M, this Ulla Johnson and this Rixo London.
