Traveling back to New York today and wishing I had these oversized comfy-chic separates to wear home on the plane. Thanks to T Magazine for the travel ensemble inspiration! Do you have a uniform for flying?
This time of year my flight of fancy = jeans + helmut tee + cashmere sweater + flat booties.

I love a chunky piece of jewelry so it was no surprise when I fell in love with the Celine leather knot bracelets that walked the Spring 2013 runway last September. This bold bracelet makes the perfect Spring accessory, and making it yourself is simple.
Gather your tools: A small piece of soft, pliable leather (I used lamb skin) + thread + sew on Velcro + scissors + a marker + a long ruler (I love this metal ruler because it has cork on the back which makes it stick to fabric and leather). Tip: If you don’t have a sewing machine you can also use leather glue or tape instead of sewing.
During New York Fashion Week I ran into a super stylish girl sporting these Celine frames as eyeglasses, and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. I always lean towards tortoise for thick frames because they don’t look as heavy on my small face. I love that these frames have the best of both worlds, solid and tortoise. As sunnies or everyday eyewear, I’d wear them around the clock.
Bonus! They are on sale right now, get them here
There are two things that define our style more than anything else… 1- the way we dress and 2- the way we decorate our homes. The Pre-Fall collections continue to roll on and I would like to think if these looks hung in my closet, that the style would spill out into my home decor.

As Pre-Fall 12 shows continue to grace us with their presence, I have noticed a sense of easy refinement. Beautiful silhouettes, simple color palettes and no-fuss ensembles. These elements not only make up for great Pre-Fall collections, but they also translate seamlessly to decorating your home…
Celine and Chloë use a soft grey to weigh down their looks, just the same as the grey sofa in this room.
T by Alexander Wang was a collection filled with must-have basics that makes up the foundation of a wardrobe.

Yigal Azrouel’s colorblock dress is perfectly proportioned, much like these rooms which are quintessentially symmetrical.
