Jackie Kennedy is a style icon no matter what decade you're focused on. This period of her life was one of my favorites and you see elements of this in my personal style (and when I am styling clients and projects) from large sunglasses, fun statement jewelry and going back to basics with a number of my apparel choices. Today would have been her 86th birthday and the best way to honor a lady of style is to showcase one of my favorite looks from her as she jetsetted on to someplace fabulous I'm sure.

As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Botkier as she has great styles, fun fabrication and more. On top of my natural love for the brand, holiday season you need to check out her new collaboration with Coco Rocha which focused on a series of handbags that are inspired by London, Milan and Paris. There are a number of fabulous pieces within this collection from satchels, multi-purpose bags and clutches. Hues stay within red, black and grey tone that make them truly versatile. Being able to hear her talk about the line and the essence behind it, made this capsule that much more impactful!

This week I was introduced to Barry's Bootcamp and I have to say that I am officially obsessed and thinking of what classes I will take next week. We all lead busy lives juggling a lot of activities. For me, in between styling photoshoots, Mens Athleisure and everything else ion the mix - it would be easy for me to say that I don't have time to work out. But if I can make everything else in my schedule work out then this is a no brainer.
My workout must haves that I highly suggest you have as well: These lightweight Reebok sneakers are from a few years ago - when I hit a hard part of my sessions, I love that they aren't heavy and I can push through. mybkr is perfect to tote my water and of course I am never without my Microsoft Band.

E. Shaw Jewels had their holiday preview earlier this week. I am such a fan of this store as it's a jewelry delight in Soho. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw some of my favorite pieces as there is always something new. Key pieces that were perfect for holiday gifting were on display. I'm obsessed with the fossilized seashells which were new to me upon visiting. In addition, I love that they are always throwing wine and shopping events which makes it a fun way to enjoy the day whether alone or with your girlfriends (just check their site out to see when the next one is). As a Statement Fashion Stylist this is definitely something I would incorporate into an upcoming shoot without a doubt.

The summer lends itself to working by the pool on a Friday or any day where you find yourself heading to the beach or at home but still want to get some work in. I spend a lot of my time outside to pull for shoots, meet clients and to style on location. But the opportunity to work from home to get a number of things done whether for my work as a Statement Stylist, Mens Athleisure, appearances as an Accessory Expert or this site - is a treat.
I can work from anywhere but when I am outside I am all about protection, hydration and finding Zen! Below are my must have items for the sun.
Protection: Sun Bum is one of my favorites to use they are a full line of sun protection for the body and hair. I love their 70 (also have this is 50) sunscreen as well as their spray cool on (I also have this in a cream and it is available for a gel). Your skin is protected, it has a nice scent and it is a great look within your tote. My sunglasses from BCBG Max Azria, protects me from the sun as they are polarized and are a great shape with a thin frame. I live for Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil and the lavender scent is my favorite! When I'm running around in the heat, my beauty hack is to have it on areas of the skin that rubs against each other (thighs) as it ensures that my skin doesn't get irritated (heat and skin constantly coming together is not a great mix).
Hydration: You should always stay hydrated and if you follow me socially, you know that I am obsessed with mybkr which I have had for a few years in a range of colors. Recently I received this blue one from the Dove team (along with my monogrammed towel) and I take it everywhere as I love the silicon wrap that is perfect for the gym, commutes and poolside. Usually mine is filled with water but today it's green tea mixed with Parrot Bay Coconut Rum - so refreshing!
Zen: It's all about the tunes and my Sol Republics are a must wherever I happen to be when I want to zone out!
