I put this look together in a Monday morning hangover slump after trying on dozens of different, more complex outfits that just weren’t looking or feeling right. While my go-tos in such circumstances are usually my black jeans and my favorite broken in t-shirt (see here), those pieces were both in the laundry and I was forced to get creative.

This jacket is perhaps my best fall purchase so far; I love how it’s kind of like a varsity sports jacket (something I never actually earned seeing as how I was never varsity at anything…or junior varsity for that matter) and at the same time feels like it could have easily come out of Stella McCartney’s f/w collection. It also kind of resembles the Stella McCartney Varsity Sports Jacket which I would kill for…

Stella. McCartney. Perfection.

Anyhoo, you’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of this jacket in the next few months and I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of tempted to sew a big varsity S on it. Who says I’m not varsity now!?

I’ve always thought it would be cool to hike on sand dunes, perhaps even roll down a few if the opportunity presented itself. There’s just something wonderful about endless, rolling hills of sand with the occasional shrub or camel sighting.

I bought this Mara Hoffman tunic-y thing over a year ago and have only worn it as a beach cover-up but it’s far too beautiful to reserve only for beach side occasions. So I threw it over a black bandeau top and a pair of black leggings for an imaginary excursion on some sand dunes. I love the way it blows in the wind and all of its intricate aztec detailings that Mara Hoffman does impeccably well. While probably best worn only in the summertime, I can totally imagine wearing it in the fall with a heavy leather jacket (I feel like I want to wear everything with a leather jacket and I’m ok with that…) and some ripped up jeans. However, a hot day on some dunes requires the most comfortable and light apparel, but next time I think I’ll go barefoot.

{ A visit to the Plaza }

As much as I miss being on the shore, it feels really great to be back in the city. This week was busier than I expected and aside from the sweat, it was great to be running from meetings to press events to more meetings. I’m working on a bunch of fun, upcoming projects that I am dying to share with you but I have to restrain myself. I promise I’ll tell you as soon as I can!

It’s a rare occasion that I get to kick-start my week with a spa treatment, but thanks to Birchbox and Caudalie, my week initiated with an amazing premier eye treatment at the Caudalie spa in the Plaza hotel followed by Caudalie wine and some incredible cheese. If only every week could start like that! I also got to preview Meredith Wendell’s Resort 2012 Collection which blew my mind! Definitely adding that release date to my calendar. And oh, how I wish I could share more about my week but you’ll know soon enough!

I’m excited to spend a weekend in NYC even though most people seem to be fleeing the predicted rain/heat. Sometimes all I need is a little time away for me to realize how much I love the city I live in - absence really does make the heart grow fonder!

Happy Weekend!
