one coat, two ways

You guys have probably all seen this coat by now. You know the one - the oversized, drapey, perfect camel coat I've been posting all over Instagram for the past few weeks? Well that coat, a recent pickup by Stella McCartney via Saks Fifth Avenue, just happens to be my new favorite, and I don't feel at all guilty for showing it off. The fit is impeccable, the color is the perfect balance for a camel - not too pink, not too brown - and it's one of the softest coats I've ever worn. To be honest this coat was made for me, and it was my random dumb luck to have stumbled upon it, ON SALE no less, at Saks this past month.

I've been trying to find as many ways to style the piece as I can. Not because it's difficult to do, but because I keep wearing it so often that I basically have to mix the rest of my outfit so I don't look like an outfit repeater!

I thought it would be interesting to try the coat in two ways: one, a classic, streamlined look, and two, a more sporty streetwear-inspired style. Below, I show two ways I've been wearing this coat lately, and truthfully I can't decide which style I prefer.

What do you think - classic, or streetstyle? Let me know in the comments!

The Ultimate Men's Gift Guide: Christmas 2017

the best gifts of 2017 he'll actually want

for the style savvy man


When you're shopping for the guy who already knows how to put an outfit together, it can be intimidating to pick pieces you know he'll want! If you have to buy something for this type of guy, or just want to treat yourself, stick to classics: cozy winter knits from Acne Studios or Gucci, sharp, fitted camel coats like this one from Mr. P, or sleek black accessories, like a wallet or backpack. I know I'll be picking up a few of the items above!

for the well-groomed guy

I'm a huge fan of grooming products, as you guys should know by now! Above, I've put together some of my current favorite products on rotation. I'm especially loving this mud mask from Exuviance, and obsessed with the new line of Le Labo body care products. The new Y fragrance from YSL is also an amazing, warm fall scent that isn't too musky or heavy; and Perricone MD is a classic in terms of skincare - their new cold plasma line for the face and eyes are perfect for looking fresh in harsh winter weather.

for the shoe addict

I'm a huge shoe addict, and sneakers are something I find myself wearing all the time. Lately, though, I've been looking for more edgy sneakers to add into the rotation. I'm obsessed with all the shoes above, but I think my standout pair next on my hit list are these sleek Givenchy sneakers from Mr. Porter.

for the tech geek

So truth be told, I'm not super tech-savvy. That being said, I love a shiny new toy, and I definitely have my eye on a few things this season. First off, I can't get enough of my Kronaby smart watch, and definitely need to get my dad a matching one for Christmas. I'm going to post a full blog shortly, but needless to say it marries the best parts of a stylish timepiece with the smartphone notifications you love (like steps, messages, etc.). I'm also definitely treating myself to a minimal Sonos speaker, now with Alexa built in, and Apple AirPods.

for the homebody

With the winter weather in effect, I am definitely much more of a homebody than in the warmer months. This is the season of "If I'm already home, I'm not going out," so making my home as comfortable as possible is key. I try to surround myself with things that are cozy, like these amazing candles from Overose Paris and Nest Fragrances; or treat myself to an early night's sleep with a cashmere sleep mask. For those of you who love to stay in, or know someone who loves to hibernate, these picks are for you!

Happy holidays, to you and yours.
