On Sunday I spent the day in an amazing space, styling Serena da Conceicao’s next look book. We had a great time with a new team of people who I hope to work with again in the future. I can’t wait to share my favorite pieces from the collection and the final images. In the meantime, here are a few of the photos I took behind the scenes when I wasn’t busy accessorizing and adjusting things.
This year I am all about streamlining my wardrobe, simplifying everything, including my winter scarf of the season. With most of my outerwear falling in the black or navy category, I thought it best to choose a lighter color scarf to brighten things up a bit. “Color” of choice, grey. I fell in love with this oversized Acne Scarf (pictured on the left) and I can’t get it out of my mind. At $150, my current budget doesn’t allow for such a pricey investment (especially when I am saving for a new winter coat this year), so I looked for alternatives… here are my findings!
The fringes are missing from this H&M cashmere version, but the size is right and at a much lower price of $59.95. // The Uniqlo Cashmere scarf for $39.90, (on sale for $29.90) has the fringe but the size is much smaller and ultimately not as warm. I love to wrap my scarf high around my ears so I don’t have to wear a hat.
I think I’ll go for the H&M one! Have you seen any other options out there? Please share!

Simple is beautiful. A motto I identify with, which at the moment is trending, and seems to be the backbone of UK based brand, Cotton Love. Nigel and Ruth, the duo behind the brand, design perfectly edited menswear and womenswear collections based around this very idea. The womenswear collection consists of five timeless designs in various fabrics and neutral colors, while the menswear collection consists of four equally as brilliant designs. With perfect proportions and simple yet thoughtful construction details, their workwear and 90′s minimalism influence shines through with every piece of the collection. The cropped trouser has a slightly longer back hem, infusing a modern edge into this timeless silhouette and is my favorite detail of the collection.
The Cotton Love collection is available for Pre-order through their Kickstarter campaign. The money raised will aid in funding future collections which will be produced in the UK.
