Black Friday

TWR Black Friday 2015-7

Let the Black Friday specials begin!  Actually, I try to avoid stores at all costs today, focusing my Black Friday festivities on a color coordinated look.  Cue the all black outfit.  Black is one of my go-to colors for any occasion.  I can be dressing up in a little black dress or going on a run, either way, black is effortless.  I’ll tend to search out a black look that is slimming, sleek and edgy.  Today’s Black Friday style is all about comfort and accessibility.  When Bentley Cowboy is out on the town with me, I need to wear something that is easy to move in, cute and allows for me to jog down the street with him.  Take a break from the shopping and dish in to my Black Friday style or at least just look at cute pictures of Bentley Cowboy.

Travel boots

Everything- Travel boots F M 15

See ya later DC.  I’m headed back to California today for Thanksgiving and packing has been on my mind, all week long.  For menswear, I wanted to focus on footwear that is ideal for travel, comfort and versatility.  With the cold weather creeping in, I love the idea of a versatile boot that can take you anywhere.  These brown leather boots were the perfect pick– classic yet still casual.  Next up is a trendier style chukka boot, in a blue suede.  This is a great way to add style to your look– while flying, driving or taking the train– while being able to walk straight off the commute, into dinner with the family.  Lastly, a sneaker is always a good option for men’s footwear.  If you’re going to take this route, go for a printed or cool mix of colors to bring some creativity to your outfit.  Get your feet ready and let’s go!

Sweater weather

Everything- Sweater weather F 15

It just got cold, real fast.  I know there was snow in Michigan over the weekend but almost-winter weather didn’t register with me until yesterday, when the high temp was 38 degrees no snow though, thank goodness.  Now, it’s definitely time to start layering up.  I’ve seen an assortment of great sweaters out in stores right now and I can’t wait to shop them.  The trend of the season is a high neckline or even a loosely draped turtleneck.  I’m personally a textured fabric for my sweaters– whether it’s a traditional cable knit, a raised fabric treatment or even added fringe, it’s all about creating depth.  Here are a few of my must-have sweaters of the season.

What’s your favorite silhouette of sweater this fall?

Shoulder Zip Sweater: Zara
Fringe Cardigan: Zadig & Voltaire
Metallic Emerald Sweater: H&M

2015 American Music Awards

TWR 2015 America Music Awards Sparkle

Award season is here again.  Last night, Los Angeles rolled out the red carpet for the annual, 2015 American Music Awards.  Music award shows tend to pull out the more dramatic and risqué looks, yet this year the necklines took on a higher approach.  A few of my favorite trends of the night are: metallic appeal, geometric sheers, classic & sleeved, and for menswear, navy textures.  The mermaid silhouette took over the evening, in a number of fabrics and colors.  I love the classic drama on the red carpet with the long sleeves, high-necklines and just enough sheer fabrics to leave the imagination running.  I cannot forget the menswear, as these two looks are my favorite.  The rich, textured navy fabrics really brought these mens’ classic styling to life.  Take inspiration from the red carpet for your holiday festivities and New Year’s eve style.

The traveling bag

Everything- The traveling bag F 15

The airports are about to get packed!  On Wednesday, I’m headed back to California for the Thanksgiving holiday and my birthday.  With scheduling, outfits and packing on my mind, I wanted to share some of my wish-list travel bags.  For whatever reason, every time I’m waiting for my luggage to arrive in baggage claim, I literally forget what it looks like.  I really love this hard-shell roller bag, as the rose gold accents and floral print makes it easier to find you bag.  For a carry-on bag, I really like a bowler bag (here) or backpack with a playful accent.  More stripes please.  Lastly, give your passport a reason to be used.  A passport holder is a great gift idea as well.  Now, time to start packing early.

What item can you not travel without?

Backpack: Herschel Supply Co
Luggage: Ted Baker
Passport Holder: Kate Spade

Traveling in color

TWR Traveling Plaid-7

Thanksgiving is exactly 1 week away!  Next week, I’m packing my bags and flying back to the west coast for some family & friend fun.  When traveling, I’m all about an easy pair of shoes to slip out of hello security lines, layering pieces and a big bag for my carry ons.  Today’s look was inspired by my upcoming travels.  Cowboy boots are an easy shoe to slip in and out of, and also add for a playful touch to an outfit.  I like that this plaid shirt allows me to be able to roll up or down my sleeves, for temperamental airplane temps.  I also bring a scarf for an added layer.  Lastly, a colored bowler bag is conventional and fun.  Keep your jewelry simple when traveling, to avoid having to undress just for the security lines.  Now, it’s time to plan out my outfits for my upcoming trip.
