holiday gift guide
faux fur throw - Restoration Hardware // candle - MALIN + GOETZ // pajama set - J Crew
glasses - Toyo-Sasaki // hot chocolate mix - BKLYN Larder // lip balm - 
bath cubes - Fresh
Can't believe how quickly this month has flown by.. the holiday's will be here before I know it! And with last year's extremely cold/long winter, this year I can't help but want to stay cozy all season long! So this year I'll be gifting some of my fave items to help everyone in my life get through the winter in style. I mean who doesn't love to stay cozy!
Some of my picks:
The best blanket/throw from Restoration Hardware. So so soft and snuggly.. in a perfect luxe faux fur to add glamour to any room.  A tobacco scented candle from Malin + Goetz.. I stumbled upon this in a restaurant bathroom when I first moved to New York. Couldn't tell you the name of the restaurant, but I've been hooked on the candle ever since! An adorable pj set from J.Crew - because.. comfy!!
I personally love a good old fashioned any time of year, but it seems especially fitting in colder seasons, and these glasses from Toyo-Sasaki are perfection! (Great to gift along with a bottle of my current bourbon of the moment, Benchmark.) And for the non drinkers in my life (like my mother), nothing better to sip on in front of the fireplace (if you are lucky enough to have one) than some delicious hot chocolate. My fave is from a local shop Bklyn Larder.. super rich and smooth.
It's never a better time than the winter to pamper yourself a bit. I love a good bath with these sugar lemon cubes from Fresh. Great way to unwind and decompress after a long week. And their sugar lip balms are the absolute best. Love that this one has just a touch of color in the perfect fall shade.
What will you be gifting this season?

garden living

dress - ASOS (similar) // sandals - Madewell // necklace - Made Her Think (similar)
watch - Dior // sunnies - Cheap Monday
Final post from San Miguel! I was fortunate enough to stay at a friend's wonderful apartment that had this gorgeous (and huge!) garden rooftop. What I would give to have a beautiful array of flowers on my patio in NY.. too bad I was born with a black thumb! Loved sitting out here enjoying the 360 views while eating breakfast and/or an afternoon refreshment.  
It was so beautiful and hot in NY today, brought back these memories of summer and made me think of breaking out this white shift dress again! It has this amazing alligator like jacquard texture to it and of course one of my fave details on any dress, pockets!
Hope you are having a good week!

urban jungle

trench - H&M Conscious Collection (love these - here and here) // shirt - Madewell (want the silk one too!) // leather skirt - Payne (similar)
sandals - Madewell // bag - Alexander Wang // sunnies - Madewell
A little more from San Miguel! Stumbled upon this beautiful park one day hiking through town. Love seeing so much green in the middle of an urban area, takes you miles away without actually having to go so far!
Wore a little "pre-transitional" outfit (since it was still technically summer), layering my fave lightweight trench over a leather mini. Will totally be making this a little more fall/city appropriate with some ankle booties soon!

fall into the season
by ellekawchronicles featuring 
dress - Zara // cardigan - Raquel Allegra // boots - Alexander Wang
ring - Bliss Lau // earrings - Loren Stewart // bag - Gucci // hat - Biltmore & Madewell 

Summer is drifting away and all I can think about it switching out my closet for the new season! Loving an earthy neutral palette of light flowy dresses layered with oversized slouchy cardis and of course, boots, boots, boots! Been lusting over this fringy Gucci bag for awhile (in every color!) and I might even get wild and try a little fedora action this year (I look awful in hats)!! And as always gotta throw in some statement making jewels!
Off to the Hamptons this weekend to grasp whatever tiny bit of summer I can find! Wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!
