Brown Is the New Black

Anyone who's been to NYC in the dead of winter knows that black is the unofficial uniform of the coldest and darkest days. Having just returned from Fashion Week activity, I can tell you that that tradition is alive and well. I love the idea of a uniform, especially when it comes to menswear, but there are times when I like to stand apart, just a bit but not too much.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

However, unlike holiday music and movies, you can avoid the same old same old holiday party style. Here's a different kind of approach.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Greetings from Texas, everyone. Rob and I have been traveling for nearly a month now and we are looking forward to finally heading home at the end of this week. I know we're in the midst of fall, but it's been feeling a lot like winter, even down here in the south. It was 36 degrees a couple days ago when we were in San Antonio! Crazy weather, but at least the transition heading back east won't be quite as jarring. As it's started to cool down, it's time to start thinking about layering a little differently. Here's a creative approach to layering with multiple sweaters.  VIEW MORE ▶︎
