Fall is definitely my favorite season when it comes to fashion. The colder weather means you can play around with more layers and textures as you try to stay warm, which also means more opportunities to really flex your personal style.

Believe it or not, this was my third trip to Amsterdam! I went once in 2010 as part of my 3 month Euro-trip and then again in 2014 on a two city vacation that included Berlin. The occasion for this latest trip just last week was to celebrate KLM airline’s 100th year anniversary. Aside from indulging in the many pleasures of the city, it was also nice to flex some of my new fall gear which had been too warm to wear back in NYC. The combo of rainy weather and milder temps in Amsterdam made dressing a little bit of challenge but here’s what I wore and packed to give you some fall inspo as we head deeper into cozy season.
It’s no secret that looking your best makes you feel like your best which is why I believe it’s so important to stick to a simple grooming routine.

Some don’t think they need it, some are just too lazy, and still others are actually into the idea but overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. Whatever the hesitation may be, I’m here to tell you that everyone, guy or girl, can benefit from a little self care and pampering, and I’m going to break it down for you in the simplest way possible. So here we go!
Sometimes you go on a trip, and other times you truly escape. My recent visit to upstate New York with COS was the latter kind of getaway, and even though we were relatively close to home, all my worries and responsibilities felt a thousand miles away.
