I’m loving autumn colors lately: ochre, marigold, camel and a healthy dose of navy and black. There’s something so chic about an all monochrome outfit with just a touch of camel or rust—like these stunning Lizzie Fortunato earrings. Ever since the weather has gotten colder, I’ve been living in short black dresses with black stockings and over the knee boots or heeled booties, topped with a long wool coat. It’s supremely comfortable and warm and goes from day to night in an instant. What’s your fall uniform this year?

Every time I think it’s finally getting colder in New York, the city surprises us with gorgeous almost-summer weather. Just today, I had brunch outside—in November! The sun was shining, the leaves were slowly changing as we watched the New York marathoners finish their race while sipping on Bloody Marys. This weekend reminded me once again how much I love this city—where there’s always something to do, people to see, and more people to meet. There’s never a dull moment around here, and staying home becomes a rare luxury to relish in once in a while—like a visit at the spa or a Michelin-starred dinner. We may be paying absurd rents to live in literal shoeboxes, but we really do have the best backyard.

It’s my favorite time of the year again—gifting season! I’m kicking off gift guides with my favorite people to shop for this year—our favorite men. Maybe it’s because I get to do it so rarely, but I love shopping for men. Some people say they’re hard to buy for, I happen to think the opposite. There are so many fantastic well-designed products out there to fulfill any interest your guy (or dad or brother) might have—maybe they’re really into photography, cooking, traveling or coffee. The key is to know what makes them tick and find the absolute best accessory to help them realize their passion. And if all else fails, anything cashmere or a bottle of Terre d’Hermès will do the trick.
