Shirt: Saturday’s | Pants: G Star Raw | Shoes: K-Swiss |
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Headphones: Skull Candy | Watch: Todd Snyder x Timex

Not that it’s new, but I have an obsession with blue. Whether that Cobalt suit from NOLA or these marine Ray-Bans… I can’t get enough. Shades of blue pair easily together while leaving room for a POP. I paired this look with sneakers from K-Swiss 50th anniversary collection. Digging the blue leather accent on the back – isn’t that a nice touch?! When I wore this outfit I buttoned up the shirt for brunch and let it loose afterwards while strolling by City Hall. Note that the headphones are wireless. Waaaayyy better than loose cords flopping around… thanks, Skull Candy!

Before We Spring Forward

Tee: ASOS | Pants: Zara | Coat: Andrew Marc Shoes: Kenneth Cole | Sunglasses: Mont Blanc | Watch: Marco Mavilla

In the winter something about the cold keeps me dressed in a lot of black and neutral colors. With spring around the corner I’m playing with the light and making a graphic statement. I paired this lined t-shirt with my favorite winter coat to keep me warm, but the whole time I wore it I just wanted to throw the coat down and walk around in just the t-shirt! Toward the end of each season I start working in the next season’s styles. Whether that’s wearing fall layers at the first cool breeze in September or attempting to wear just a t-shirt at the beginning of March, the saying goes, “we always want what we don’t have.” If the current temperate means I get to wear this outfit, then I want exactly what I DO have. Cheers to spring temperatures ahead.

Distinct Style at Morimoto


Jacket: Ryan Seacrest Distinction

Vibrant hues line the walls at Morimoto, a restaurant partnership between the Iron Chef and Stephen Starr. It’s quite the experience to indulge in a nine course Omakase tasting menu while the lights behind your date’s head change from intense red to opulent orange to cool blue. Briana and I stopped by just before Valentine’s Day (friend date!) to experience the Omakase meal. My favorite dish was a scallop accompanied with A LOT OF TRUFFLE. I love truffle. After dinner, and after most of our fellow diners left, we stuck around to shoot my dinner jacket by Ryan Seacrest Distinction. The velvet blazer with a satin shawl collar was perfectly suited for the luxurious evening. My all-dark outfit provided a blank canvas as the vibrant hues changed the interior of the room as well as the allure of my attire.

My Favorite Coat For Arctic Temperatures

Coat: Triple F.A.T. Goose

One of my favorite parts about winter is when I start breaking out my outerwear. This season I’m wearing the Triple F.A.T. Goose Chenega coat. It’s slogan “For Arctic Temperatures” held up… during the snow storm a couple weeks ago this fuzzy coat kept me super warm. It’s lined with goose which is one of the best and lightest insulators, it’s water-resistant and the hood is trimmed with coyote fur. DREAMY. One of the other neat features that I wish we would have taken a (probably awkward) photo of is the underarm zippers. Sometimes I unzip the armpits if I’m feeling a little sweaty… excellent zipper placement!

Fitted Suit in the French Quarter

Suit & Shoes: Primark | Watch: Shore Projects | Sunglasses: Givenchy

Continuing with my affinity for blue and black attire, during my trip to New Orleans I sported this suit for an evening out. Before dinner Briana and I explored the French Quarter stopping in Jackson Square. Isn’t the Saint Louis Cathedral gorgeous?! While snapping our photos we watched a couple pose for wedding photos in the garden. It was really a magical moment! Then we jetted over to Magazine Street for our dinner reservation at Shaya. Modern Israeli cuisine.. mmmmmmm yum. If you’re heading to NOLA definitely plan to stop there for dinner, but make a reservation a few days (or weeks) in advance. The place books up fast. We loved the hummus and meticulously crafted cocktail selection. After dinner we went back to the hotel and regrouped before heading out for some dancing.

Special thank you to Loews New Orleans for the generous hospitably. See my review on the property over on Wear We Went’s STAY section!
