It's a month away from Valentine's Day, and I'm getting in the mood. I found the chicest tee to profess my love a few weeks ago at Le Point — a well-curated boutique here in San Francisco. The tee originally comes from a French company called Keur Paris. The material is incredibly soft, and I see why it's worth the price, mine has a "he's mine" hand-stitched note embroidered within a heart, but the company does custom phrases like "T'es ou bb?", "mon amour," or "filet mignon." I dig the oversized fit of the tee tucked into a pair of high waisted light wash denim. I wanted the look to feel like elevated weekend wear, so I threw on a cozy sherpa coat with leather buckles, a baker boy hat, loads of gold jewelry (per usual) and my beautiful shoelace-less oxfords. 

Where I'd actually wear this look: the coffee shop to get some work done on a Sunday.

A few months ago the COS team invited me out to Los Angeles to view their new Spring collection and attend a press preview! To say I was impressed was an understatement, the COS team pulled out all the stops and made my stay, and my experience with the brand a memorable one. 

It was a quick 24 hour trip but an unforgettable one. Read along for the breakdown of my press preview with COS:

Day 1: The Arrival
After flying into LAX, I found a driver waiting for me, with a sign and all!, to shuttle me off to the Chamberlain, in Beverly Hills, for the evening. I had a Gigi Hadid moment and realized a driver waiting for me at every airport could have been my life, but my mom isn't Yolanda, alas I went with it and enjoyed the 30-minute drive in my spacious luxe suburban with tinted windows, fully stocked with bottled water, mints and hand sanitizer. I mean, what else does a girl need, right?

Driving past chic neighborhoods, and endless palm trees lining the streets I finally found myself at destination number one that evening — The Chamberlain — my humble abode for the evening. It was a Hollywood dream, the checkerboard floors, deco vibes scattered in the lobby, mirrors splashed everywhere. It was perfect. I checked in to find I was upgraded and moved to a bigger suite! In my suite, the COS team left a little welcome gift (pictured directly above), so I knew I was in for a treat the next 24 hours.

I was on a bit of time crunch since we had dinner reservations and had a whole five minutes to get out of my airport OOTD and into a fab LA look for a night out with some very fancy people. Oh dear. Well, it took me a whole seven minutes, but I made it! We arrived at Ysabel, our dining establishment for the evening, and it was just so chic. The decor, the endless amounts of food, the top-shelf tequila, the great conversation with some very fabulous people. Slowly but surely LA was trying to win me over. 

Day 2: Press Day 
After a relaxing night sleep in a King sized bed I woke up, and while room service sounded fab, I wanted to explore the hotel, so I went downstairs and had breakfast in the restaurant while sneaking in a little work. 

Around noon a driver came to pick me up and off, we went to the Beverly Hill COS store! I always go into a COS store when I'm abroad but I've never been to one stateside, so I was pretty excited to experience it finally. The COS team welcomed us with open arms and allowed us to tour the store, shop the floor, and the most unique part-- view the not-yet-released Spring collection. I was dying; I wanted everything. My usual un-minimal aesthetic went out the window, and all I seemed to want was navy topcoats and black cashmere. Everything was so gorgeous! If you have been watching my Insta Stories, you've seen my navy double-breasted COS topcoat which I most definitely wear at least once a week. I also picked out another kimono style coat, a slouchy yet chic turtleneck dress, and a sharp navy button-down dress; somehow I wasn't thinking about how to fit all these extra into an overhead bag. I think the thought process was more along the lines of how can I get this whole store home with me. :) But, I digress, back to the collection, it was full of texture, softer shades, and the dramatic shape that COS is known for! You need to get yourself to the site or find a store and check it out for yourself. Pro-tip: do yourself a favor and treat yourself with the olive one shoulder two-piece swimsuit. Oww Oww. 

I'm in love. COS you've found yet another forever fan in me. Thanks for spoiling me and really letting me embody your brand the LA way.

Dressing up, for the most part, has always been in my nature. Except for the week or so between Christmas and New Years - I didn't know what day it was, what time it was, or what I should be doing — so cozy sweatpants seemed very reasonable for about eight days during that time. Now it's back to the grind and back to normalcy, feeling chic and dressing up feels right to me, so the look above is very much a moment! This sheer dress with stunning embroidered roses is fab, and it's easily a look to dress up or down.

I borrowed this dress from my Rent the Runway unlimited subscription. My subscription allows me to rent up to four items anytime and I choose this Saylor dress for one of my selects. I picked this one because, hello, one it's fabulous, and two I figured I'd wear it to holiday parties or for our NYE festivities, but I didn't do either. I just wore it to work. ;) Don't worry I didn't look like I did above, I went casual with a pair of red booties (from this post), hair slicked down, no red lips and no faux fur -- I did, however, wear a leather moto jacket which made me feel badass in this feminine number. Long story short, don't not wear the dress, wear the dress even if it's just to work for an average Tuesday. 

The End.
