As in “I Love You Man”, as in “I Love You Rick Owens, and your olive and earth tone clothes!”

California dude relocated to Italy and built an incredibly sexy line of arguably the most sensual body hugging clothing.

Look at this top – seriously, how could you not want to completely envelope yourself in this?

Rick Owens single handedly redefined the biker jacket.  reversecommuter is lucky enough to own a brown leather one…

but clearly the suede version is quite delicious and perhaps needs to find it’s way to my closet.

Not to mention those crazygood wedge boots that are oh-so-obsession-worthy (trust me on this, two years in and still absolutely on my mind as fall 2015 potential ankle wedges…)

The Rick Owen creation is limitless in life span and (here comes the fabulous part…) a Rick Owens piece is an easy peasy addition that makes an outfit.  Gorgeous clothing that doesn’t need directions.  What. Is. Better. Than. That.?  Nada.

Palm Trees

reversecommuter’s favorite hashtag on twitter and instagram is #ineedapalmtree…wherever palm trees are it has been practically scientifically proven that I am happiest! IMG_7895

Leather Jacket Replaces The Puffer

“Puffer coats make me look slim”, said no one ever.  Winter coats are necessary, warm and usually wide.

Now that March is here the outerwear options expand instead of your appearance!

Leather jackets layered underneath with cashmere sweaters, scarves and long sleevers allow for a new rotation in the closet – YAHOOOOZIES!

Top 5 Vacation Dresses

One thing in common with all 5 of these choices – can be rolled up in  a ball then shaken out, add havianas or a stellar pair of Loubies, wear with children and still manage to be all put together!

1. Rick Owens

reversecommuter found this dress and immediately bought it in 2 different colors.  Draped, bias cut and absolutely rollable.

2. DVF

the queen of romp herself would approve of this choice – repeat after me, I can never go wrong packing a wrap dress.

3.  James Perse

Californian king of t-shirts just grab one of his long tank dresses or rushed mid-length dresses and go!

4.  Alexander Wang

this classic sheer paneled dress comes in light and dark colors and even in a shirt silhouette, clearly recognizing a good thing can come in different shapes & sizes.

5.  ETRO

the Italian design house that creates tapestry like no other can dream without hallucinogenic assistance once again proves that a combo cover-up / fabulous evening dress makes for a lighter suitcase…all the better to fill up at the duty free!

Gorgeous scents and pretty pretty palm trees combine on the black glass containers offering three scents, Old Mantauk Highway, Palm Beach and West District Road.  Salt water, firs, wild iris, jasmine, lemon and lime are just some of the inspirations richly entwined in these candles.  Happy to report reversecommuter has bought two of the three…need to leave something for Santa to put in my stocking!

Putty in my Hands

Earth tone pinks, the perfect not-ready-to-give-up-summer color!

Warmer than summer whites but still a long way from the winter spectrum of the color wheel.

Rick Owens Fall 2014 Diana dress is a gorgeous collaboration of summer & fall, with a leather trim detail across the top.  Drool Drool Drool!

Gucci Fall 2014 is all about blushing pinks – their ads are almost monochromatically dedicated to the ultimate girlie color!  This blazer paired with jeans and a white tank top would be an ideal September outfit.

RedValentino’s pleated pink blush skirt is begging to be a wardrobe staple and it’s versatility is mind-blowing!  Flat brogues, little cardigan and this skirt…HOLYTOLEDO the school bus drop off line will not know what happened!!!

Un-Clog Me!

Being a mom in the ‘burbs is not synonymous for icky clog wearing creature.

If stilettos are  not on the menu for a sporting event or school story-telling appearance, there are stylish offering available!

Fall is a tricky transition season for footwear – buh bye open toe fabulousness, yet not quite time for shearling lined tootsy treats.  A few of my current loves include these Gucci horsebit ankle boots.  “GIDDYUP!!!!!”

Alexander Wang’s Anouk Chelsea Boot is an absolute knockout in reversecommuter’s all time fave color, navy blue!
