It has been much too long since I have sat down in front of my computer and written a blog post. It seems as though I sneezed and summer was already over and it is time for my annual pumpkin carving party and a slue of costume parties I am preparing “looks” for.
With the change of the seasons comes changes to trends and as I unpack my Autumn wardrobe I eagerly pull out pieces that are fitting with some of my favorite trends this season. A nod to the Gucci Princetown’s we have seen all over, I decided to dust off my Stuart Weitzman silver loafers to pair with a cream and metallic mini that is reminiscent of something Leandra Medine might wear to her office. In effort of changing things up I also decided to wear my sweater tucked into my skirt, defining my waistline a bit more. Paired with a navy handkerchief and a leather clutch I was prepared for my day of meetings and running errands at the local farms.
Being in trend does not require one to go out and purchase a slew of new clothing but being creative with what you have and transitioning each piece to those we saw on the runways. My metallic skirt, which was originally a long A-line cut got a makeover last week by chopping it into a mini.

Many of us in the fashion world look forward to Coachella to admire the street style – images of favorite festival girls dancing in the dessert heat with outfits that make you want to run around barefoot and take up playing the tambourine. With that said, it was not a big surprise to see a handful of designers had crochet on their mind when designing their SS15 collection. After all, crochet is a staple in the wardrobe of every festival girl.
I decided just because I wasn’t able to attend Coachella should not mean that my favorite festival gear should be forgotten this season. As it turns out, most of the pieces in question could easily transition to country life when paired with Ralph Lauren Collection cowboy boots.
For wandering through the sequoia trees, I wore one of my favorite vacation finds from Ecuador. It’s the perfect dress to bare the California heat with its touch of crochet. I completed my look with a Hermès scarf and wrapped a vintage Bakelite necklace around my wrist to accompany me on my walk. My Ferragamo hobo happened to be the perfect accessory to collect random pieces of nature for the imaginary jewelry line I’ve been designing in my head for a few years.
I can already tell The Whisky hotel will be the perfect place for me to get back to my entrepreneurial roots and create…. ahhh fresh country air.
