Goodbye Winter, Hello Tonal Layers!

Spring doesn’t last very long in LA. It’s usually not long after the seasons change before it practically feels like Summer, with 80 degree sweltering heat. I love this time of year though, when the mornings are still crisp and the nights are chilly. There’s something so cozy about it, but admittedly – it is a bit of a confusing time fashion-wise. My trick for surviving these in-between-season moments is to rely on easy layers that you can add or remove depending on the time of day. And lately, I’m having a lot fun using layers to experiment with tonal looks.

Tonal looks are created when you wear multiple pieces of similar color shades, but they don’t necessarily have to be exactly the same. The dark berry shade of my sweater and rust color of my dress are within the same family (red), but they’re still very different, making the look much more interesting. I added a warm accent to my look with this tan crossbody, which plays on the color of my dress. What do you think, would you wear this look? Shop below!

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.

  • Note to self: wearing leather trousers and heels to a reclamation yard does not get you the best deals 💰 😂🔨
