Playing Dress Up Day 2 With @TenetShop , @BarbaraBui, & @JBrandJeans

While in Southampton, I got to have an amazing time making friends and playing dress-up at the most wonderful shop on the planet, Tenet. If you haven’t heard about them, well, I’m sorry for you. They sell both men’s and woman’s clothing, all of which I wanted to take home, at a variety of price points. They opened their first shop in Southampton about 3 years ago, and have grown to be an amazing, luxurious boutique with a sense of friendliness and fun that can’t be matched. In summer 2014, they plan to launch their e-commerce site, which will bring all their glory straight to your doorstep. If you are in the neighborhood, stop into the shop and get friendly with the amazing staff. My suspicions lead me to believe that within a years time, all your friends will be bragging about their Tenet buys. Anyway, here is my SECOND LOOK of playing dress up with my new friends at Tenet.

Pants & Shoes: Barbara Bui Top: J. Brand

This is perfect for an NYE PARTY or general get together with friends. I adore the leather inserts in the pants as well as the unique twist on the black pump. This shirt is J. Brand. Yes, can you believe it? They are known for their jeans but make the most beautiful shirts with flowing and interesting shapes.

Jacket: BALMAIN Pants: RAG & BONE

I am so obsessed with this jacket that it make end up making the trek back to NYC with me. We will just have to see what happens now won’t we? Either way, isn’t this leather on leather look very Freja Beha. I think it’s an unbelievably gorgeous combination. Enjoy & tell me your thoughts.

#AllBlackEverything #British #Schoolgirl Inspiration

I was hanging around Westchester, NY doing a bit of shopping when we took these snap shots. I was a bit inspired by an Alex Chung look. She has this British school girl cool mixed with a school girl style. I think it’s just so fun and unique but more importantly EASY. I added this statement necklace that Will’s parents gave me for Christmas. This coat kept me super warm. The layers were perfect for walking about the mall. I could just strip off layers as my shopping went on. I hope you are all hitting up the post holiday sales and tell me what you are buying. Here is the look. Tell me what you feel about it.

Tea Talks: #10Essentials for Rachael Forster when #Traveling

While you will have a look of the day later in the day, I figured I’d do a post on my ten essentials especially when traveling.

20131227-110134.jpg

1. Laptop: Until I can afford an easier to carry tablet, bringing my computer around is all I can do. But it’s essential so I can connect with all my lovely readers, make edits on our script with Final Draft, and use Photoshop to edit pictures. I can’t really just leave work at home because I don’t have a normal job.

2. Lavender Spray Mist: To help ease some travel stress, hydrate my skin, and to have an aromatherapy boost. I also spray it on pillows of where ever I’m staying for a relaxing sleep.

3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer: I never like to have too much cover and this tinted moisturizer is just a nice. It is light and leaves your skin feeling glowing. This goes wherever I go. I also make sure I get the one with SPF.

4. A PJ Set: I love pajamas more than anything so being able to settle into something pretty, sexy, and comfortable when you get to your destination is a must for me.

5. A Great Mascara: Nothing opens your eyes like a great mascara. I switch up my brands so my lashes don’t get use to it but currently I’m using Givenchy. After a long car ride, flight or train ride, open up your eyes and fake a good night sleep with mascara & a curler. They go hand and hand for me.

6. An eye mask: Speaking of a good night’s sleep, GET ONE. I wear an eye mask at home because I’m sensitive to light and a light sleep. Wearing an eye mask is a savior especially since you can’t control the conditions of whatever room your Aunt Cassie decided to stick you this year on Christmas. Sleep in and block out the rays.

7. A oversized scarf: Regulating your temperature is super hard on a flight so I find big scarves the can double as blankets to be wonderful. Plus you can actually wear it to keep warm if your destination is not.

8. A Great Lip balm: Chapped lips are not attractive or very kissable. Why make yourself uncomfortable by not bringing yours with you? Kora Organics makes a lip balm for the gods plus you can stick it on your cheeks to get a summery glow.

20131227-114104.jpg

9. Stylish Walking Flat: Nothing yells tourist than a pair of gym trainers. I believe in comfort but you can still look cool while doing it. I love a luxurious leather ballet flat for a walking shoe. I spent many a hours wearing the soles of my shoes around Paris and not once did someone think I was a tourist.

10. Last but not least, CAMERA: document everything. You will want it later. I just found footage from a trip from Amsterdam and I can not tell you how happy it made me. Capture it all. This is your life.

XO & so much love.

#HomefortheHolidays for a #Casual Dinner with @HM & @JoesJeans

Happy Boxing Day to all my followers and friends who celebrate it. My step grandpapa is English so we celebrated as I grew up. This particular holiday, I am currently sitting on my couch writing to all of you watching the West Ham vs. Arsenal “footie” match before I head back to NYC.

Williamsburg, VA is such a charming little town.  It was a great Christmas with wonderful food. I hope yours was also lovely. I wore a super casual look as my family doesn’t bother dressing up too much for small family dinners. I added some oxblood for a bit of holiday color. Check it out and tell me about your holiday.
