This is a great day to night look. Chic enough to wear all day to a meeting etc and sexy enough to pull off at a dinner date.

Denim Done Right

I have always been a huge fan of jean - any jean! Jeans, jean jackets and jean shirts are my all time favorites! I always feel like it matches everything and its easy to wear. Its usually considered a causal look - but why not dress it up!? I have taken my favorite J.Crew jean shirt and Cinco Powell accessories and created three different looks to prove to you (and me) that jean can be can be jazzy for all of us...not just the Canadians!  LOL

 

My favorite jean shirt is from J.Crew , White Manolo Blahnik Mary Jane , Vintage Alaia skirt  and Cinco Powell Sobrina Crossbody bag.

You might recognize this fabulous Lanvin skirt?? Yes this is my RHONY reunion skirt. Why not splurge on one (or a bunch) of fab pieces and wear them over and over again.. I am loving this Cinco Powell knot hassle in blush. Wear it as a necklace, use this hassle to tag your bag or as a keychain!

My official fall obsession!!! A turban!!  Loving this leather Turbon from Mandy Tangerine .High wasted GiamBattista Valli trousers, paired with my J. Crew denim shirt. Cinco Powell makes the most fab mini tags that you can wear as a necklace and personalize. Loving their classic tote in navy tag your bag and add a hassle.. how fun.. a fab bag that you can add accessories too! Love it! 

Love, KT.

The Inspiration

The Look

I incorporated a bunch of my favorite things into this look. I have had these white Converse Chuck Taylors for over 20 years!! Comfy street-style cool and they don't ever seem to go to of style. Why not pair them with a skirt? Then there is my Nate necklace by Diana Broussard - I have a bunch and always feel like this necklace completes any look and brings it to the next level. The jacket is my take on an old school monogrammed shirt a'la Elvis in the 50's :)  Christiaan and I got this jacket at American Apparel and had it monogramed to copy a style that Elvis wore. Elvis had this amazing EP monogram that I always wanted to imitate. 50's & 60's fashion is truly my favorite!

Door Knockers and Graffiti #thingsthatareperfect

The Look

My Connecticut conservative roots collide with NYC graffiti streets. I love a blue and white nautical feel but I hated navy for the longest time! I am now beginning to appreciate navy for what he is - chic and sexy. Here I am in another blazer...the blazer is my best friend. If you were to bump into me on the street I would have a cardigan or a blazer on or in my bag (or under my stroller). Cinco Powell makes these fabulous new Sobrina cross-body clutch. Great colors that you can personalize with your own engraved tag, whether its your initials...or Elvis! Its the coolest.

Endless Summer

Remember when we were little and summer meant everything. Long lazy days at the beach hanging with friends and family sun kissed skin streaky blonde hair, fried clams, sandy feet, grass stained knees. I remember the summer that my father taught me how to eat an ice cream cone.. lick by lick and clean up the sides so no drippings hit my hands or legs. The sound of the squeaky screen door shutting with a slap and waiting for the sweet corn to be just right before eating it every day. 

I felt like that this summer..... this was one of the best summers that I can remember since the days of my youth..  Maybe it was because I wasn’t working as much or maybe it was because I wasn't pregnant and I am sure it had to to with the fact that Kingsley is getting older and can appreciate more.  Also Cash is old enough to enjoy it all and take it all in.   Josh and I tried to get away every weekend and mix it up and try different places.. We went to lake George with the kids, explored parts of Brooklyn, went to my parents in CT, the Hamptons headed up to Vancouver for an adult weekend with friends, Lake Tahoe, Los Angeles and even made it to  Lego Land in San Diego.. 

Some how the schlepping back and fourth to camp for drop off and pick up just didn’t seem so bad this summer.. I enjoyed that extra time with Cash in the back of a Taxi gazing out the window toward the river, picking him up all sweaty and tired from a long day of sports and water activities, listening to all of the new games he played and friends he had made. The city was sleepy this summer.. I enjoyed the tourists in my neighborhood asking for directions. It was awesome having minimal traffic and always being able to get a cab. I actually looked forward to taking Kingsley to the park on those HOT HOT days and playing in the water. I always love hitting up Mr Softee rain or shine.. we would wait in line and when it was our turn... we always ended up ordering the same thing.. somehow this summer seemed different? Better, longer, warmer, and funner! (or proper english more fun)

  As Labor Day approaches I find myself sad to have school start and be back to the grind of school drop off, packing lunches, home work and after school activities.. 

This summer I appreciated summer for what it was.. that simple time, peaceful, warm, time with family and friends.. this summer for me was about the sandy feet and the sun kissed skin. It was about stepping back and appreciating what I have and what I am blessed with and grateful for.  A wonderful husband, 2 beautiful children and a really awesome group of friends and family. 

Growing up we had a house on a Lake in CT.. it was this great little cabin. We would spend a lot of the summer up there and I have so many fond memories from that little cabin. There was this rock on the lake that some kids spray painted on it read ENDLESS SUMMER ... this summer after all these years I get it.. this was my endless summer and I look forward to many many more.

The King and I

The Look

My stylist -Christiaan Choy- is always trying to get me into a pant and out of a body-con "housewife" dress. Here you go...the happy medium? I feel just as sexy and get to wear ELVIS!! Christiaan had this fun fabulous tank made for me...out of PUFFY PAINT!! Too cool.

I am always cold so I LOVE a blazer. This particular one is super summer friendly. It's a light cotton with a sheer back panel.  Always make a statement with your signature style - what ever that may be. For me it always my necklaces.

Sound the Alarm

The Look

DANGER!! Where there's smoke there could be fire...or maybe an Elvis sighting? This look is such an unexpected mix of styles - and that's what's so fun about fashion - a tied up tank with a metallic flirty skirt and a lightweight trench to turn up the level of chic. And mixing metals? Go for it! Love my bold gold bamboo door knocker earrings and gold shoes paired with this silver skirt. And of course I've gotta throw in my Good Luck Elvis where I can :)

Gold Rush

The Look

A cardigan is right up there on my list  of favorite things!  So why not wear one as a dress paired with a bunch of fun chunky gold chains!? I love to to be comfortable and simultaneously chic - and when it comes to my accessories, we all know how I feel. More is More!
