As I’ve been preparing for my upcoming trip to New York for Fashion Week (eek!), I’ve been shopping for all of the essentials I need to spend a week in the cold. Remember, I’m the girl who layers three sweaters if it’s under 60 degrees. I have so many cute things I want to bring, but I only have two suitcases and so many shoes! One of the must haves on my list is a classic trench coat. I know it’s not the warmest choice, but it’s just so timeless and chic. I feel just like Audrey Hepburn standing in front of Tiffany’s when I wear mine!

I styled this Burberry trench for California weather with a striped skirt and lightweight sweater, but it can easily be worn with everything from jeans to slacks. The color is a light tan, which looks great with pretty much everything. The length is also not too long and not too short. Remember to consider your height when buying a trench or any longer coat. You don’t want a style that is too long because you don’t want it to overwhelm your frame.

This Chloe bag is one of my new additions to my handbag collection and I am obsessed! The color is the perfect shade of nude and I love the size. This bag will be great for the plan ride because I can fit all of my must-haves and have room for my iPad and snacks! The shoes are from one of my favorite fast fashion stores, No Rest For Bridget.  They have two locations in OC and an awesome online store. These heels are a fun twist on the classic black pump and will be great through the summer and fall seasons!

How do you love to wear the classic trench coat?

I’m a firm believer that the right accessories can make an outfit. Even if your look is fairly simple, a great handbag, watch or shoes can add just the right amount of interest. When I’m running around shopping for clients, I need to be comfortable, yet stylish. I often opt for a feminine blouse like this one from BGBG and denim because they are both classics that never go out of style.

A killer handbag is also a must for me. I need a style that is big enough to hold all of my essentials and versatile enough to work suit an assortment of looks. This Henry Wear “Penelope” tote is just the right size and goes with so many different outfits! I love how the rich colors compliments the many jewel tones in my wardrobe. It’s also the perfect shape for a laptop and notebook, which is ideal for meetings.

Along with my bag, I always have to have a watch on me during the week. A good watch is fashionable and functional and stands the test of time (literally). Lately, I’ve been obsessing over my Aibi watch. It is just so understated and chic. The black leather band is so soft that I often forget I have a watch on at all! The gold hardware matches my every day jewels and the white face looks is clean and minimalistic.

What are your must-have accessories?

I’ve never shied away from color in my wardrobe. There is just something about wearing a pop of color that makes me happy and always gets me lots compliments. However, I’ve been on a neutral color palette kick lately. They are super popular right now and look so rich and stylish. Lots of people want to add more muted tones into their wardrobes, but have no idea how to wear them without looking washed out. So I recently shot this neural inspired look to serve as inspiration!

The key to rocking neutrals is to incorporate textures into your outfit. I did this by throwing on my Joie faux fur vest in cream with a silk paisley top because the toughness of the vest works well with the soft look of the blouse. I chose my favorite pair of Rag and Bone jeans for this look instead of a traditional denim. I just really dig the light army green color and find myself wearing them with everything!

Lastly, I accessorized this outfit with this pale pink envelope clutch by Rebecca Minkoff. I’m obsessed with the color of this clutch! It’s seriously the perfect shade of blush. I mirrored the gold hardware on the bag with a few gold layered necklaces and my everyday Michael Kors watch.
