Ah New York I love you! Today was one of those absolutely perfect Sunday’s that make living anywhere else increasingly difficult – it’s a double edged sword, distance makes the heart grow fonder, but distance also leads to homesickness at times. However, coming home to friends and family and getting to spend a relaxing long weekend, with some work mixed in-between, leads to an ideal break. Though the sweater look is getting increasingly exhausting, I’m craving resort, and while the weather this weekend seemed to at least semi agree (temps fell short of the 50’s), it’s still bundle up season. I’m a devote adorer of Isabel Marant shoes, I tend to wear the sneakers over the weekends, cute, yet casual footwear for a lot of time devoted to errands, coffees, etc.
This weekend I fashioned them a bit differently, I always love taking favorite looks and adding or retracting accessories, coats, or shoes to change it up. I’m obsessed with R13 denim, as in I wear it basically every other day, and it’s the ideal weekend wear, comfortable and worn in, but appropriate enough to wear to a nice lunch with a chic sweater. I decided to start basic, a Helmut Lang tee (favorite basic tee ever), and add a black and white IRO sweater for warmth, in addition I layered with a army green Current Elliot jacket, and the best winter coat – a Canada Goose. Though the weather wasn’t too cold at all I didn’t feel like dealing with my hair so I added a Blue & Cream cashmere beanie – so weekend luxe! It never hurts to change it up for the weekend, being causal and looking cute is a balance, but worth it.
