Cuddle Me Up

As a long time fan of Stella McCartney, you could only imagine my excitement when they asked to dress me for their show during Paris Fashion Week. I remember seeing the collection last season and totally being mesmerized. My favorite look was this one sleeved knitted perfection. I dream all year long for the weather to wear thick knits that I can cuddle up in, and thankfully Paris was cold enough for me to do so. Got to love that Parisian sweater weather! I mean it’s not everyday when I can get away with wearing a one sleeved sweater right? As impractical as a one sleeved sweater can be, I found it a great opportunity to work with layers. Though I’m wearing a simple undershirt here, for a non-fashion week look, I would probably layer it with a longer sleeve!

What I really love about Stella’s work is that she always designs for the girls on the street, the everyday woman and the cool moms (as she is one herself). The collection this season was no exception- gorgeous free flowing maxis paired with flat-forms (perfect for us Cali girls), easy to wear one pieces, and the most stand out accessories per usual. And oh, not to mention, the sickest soundtrack ever.

Anyways as most of you know I’ve been traveling nonstop. From New York to Paris to Korea to Greece and now I’m headed back to NY as I write this to you guys. I’m excited because this time around I have Chloe traveling with me! It’s never easy leaving Chloe behind, but it definitely makes appreciate my time with her even more.
