They already have a combo nickname, but now Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have the official stamp of coupledom: a unified dress code. I know everyone has their opinion when it comes to Kim and Kanye and whether or not they’re into couples coordinating outfits but I have to admit- (although my hubby won’t have any part of it- cue the tears) I’m totally into it!!  Most notably, as the KK pair hit the couture shows in Paris I was totally feeling their monochrome–only palette in neutrals. I’ve always been a fan of how elegant, polished and sophisticated a monochromatic look can be.  This week I let my love of navy inspire my monochromatic ensemble.  I styled the look with classic nude Manolos, a nude patent leather LV bag and a chunky gold necklace.  Check out the pics below!!!   Next on the agenda- trying to convince my hubby to rock all navy too! Wish me luck!!!

For a fashionista winter usually means yummy sweaters, leather, gloves, hats, scarves, a major chic coat and some hot boots.  Winter in Miami takes on a different perspective considering 80 degree beach days, in February, are as a normal as a 2-year-old having a temper tantrum!  Even though we see our tourist friends frolicking in their glam swimsuits rocking the latest in cruise-wear come winter us Miamians like to rock our “winter-esque” duds if it drops below 75.   So this one winter day in Miami it dropped below 70 (craziness I know) and I got to do just that (and loved every second of it obviously)!!!  My look included leather pants, a crop sweater, and even gloves (well actually glovelettes to be exact- give this Miami girl trying to “do winter” a break)!!! Check out the pictures below!  Next stop- hot chocolate and marshmallows poolside!!!  Ahhh– don’t you just love winter in Miami!!!

I am all about black and white and have always loved the contrast of the two colors when worn together or the chic monochromatic look of them when worn separately.  I mean as a fellow New Yorker walking 5th ave in head to toe black was as routine for me as drinking coffee!!! This season, however, I totally fell in love with the combination of both- in the color gray.  It started with a purchase of amazing gray Rag & Bone jeans and grew from there.  In the end gray became my go-to color pairing it with everything and anything in my closet- from brights to neutrals, sparkly statement necklaces, and designer shoes!!!  I never thought I’d love anything more than black and white but this winter I’ve realized gray brings a whole new level of chicness to a wardrobe!!! Check out how I wore gray for my #ootd below!!!
