Hong Kong Bound

Hong Kong Harbour

For me, the bright side of summer's end is new fall fashion (think cozying up in cashmere and squeezing into skinny jeans) and fashion week fun. New York City is abuzz with the spirit of style and it is always so exciting.

This season, however, I am (once again) packing up my closet, my kids, and everything else and heading overseas to Hong Kong.  

We lived there for two years and it was an incredible experience and I am looking forward to going back (although sad to leave my family and friends, of course). 

And while I still can't help myself buying cold-weather sweaters and jeans, I am also scrambling to find the few remaining sundresses left of the racks -- it will still be in the high-80s/90s there for the next couple months! And never quite dips below 50.

Just when I think I have my uniform down, my life takes an exciting new turn. Hopefully, a closet filled with classics will serve me well along the way.

So, as my wardrobe changes and evolves, so will my blog. Stay tuned!

Go Gwyneth!

GP in Prada

Gwyneth has got me excited about fashion again (after a long summer break)....

In Prada

She documents her Venice premiere in her latest Goop newsletter. Loved reading about it (and living vicariously!).

Knit Picks

Being house-bound for a few days thanks to hurricane Irene really got me in the mood for some cozy cashmere. 

I love these basic-shaped knits -- the boyfriend V-neck, the sweatshirt cut, the grandpa cardigan -- from J.Crew. Love the colors, too.



I think I'm officially ready to start shopping for fall.
