Monthly Essentials

10 Things I Love for November

• My birthday.

• Thom Browne’s ultra sleek pebble-grain leather pouch, which always comes in handy.

• This TV show (because I’m a royalist at heart).

• A sleek pair of classic loafers, like these by Gucci.

• Enjoying the postcard-perfect view of New York from Top of the Rock.

• The infamous Waldorf Salad at Bergdorf Goodman’s restaurant. So worth it, every single time.

• Dreaming about perfect loft spaces, all while envisioning myself living in one #goals.

This protein powder – seriously so good.

• Select pieces from the Mr Porter x COS collaboration (especially this dusty pink crewneck).

These Acne Studios sweats, which I recently picked up during a standard excursion to Soho.
