If you live anywhere in the Northeast, then you know that it’s cold right now. Like bone chilling cold. After spending most of Saturday running around Central Park in the snow, slipping and sliding.. and taking quite a few snowballs in the line of fire between Adam and his brother… the weather took a serious turn towards unbearable on Sunday. Which means lots of blankets, cups of tea, and when I MUST outside – layers.
I’ll be the first to admit, winter style is not exactly my favorite thing. But since we’re really just now getting in to it and spring still seems ages away, I’ve resolved to try my best to come up with practical yet fun/interesting/stylish options to share with you all. The first being this suede skirt and teddy coat combo.
Happy New Year friends! I’m starting off 2017 with a fresh perspective and fresh blooms. At the end of 2016, after a particularly busy and stressful couple of months.. I was feeling a little bit burnt out on ideas for this space. But by the magic of January 1st, today I woke up brimming with new ideas and things I can’t wait to share with you all. As well as a few resolutions of my own.
We had our first dusting of snow last night in New York (it actually started just as we were finishing these photos) and it was a clear reminder that winter is in fact.. coming. I’d be lying if I said that fact wasn’t a little bit heart-heavy to me, so I’m trying to combat the winter blues with unexpected outerwear options. That means trading my standard coat for a long faux fur vest and wool jacketcombo (together they’re just as warm as your duffle coat I swear). And skipping my usual go-to knit beanie for a trés chic wool beret instead.
If you’re anything like me, than you’re already in full out holiday mode. Between the long weekend, putting the finishing touches on part 2 of my ‘Complete Guide to the Holidays’ (coming soon! check out part one here) and the fact that I can now listen to Christmas music without shame.. practically everything is tinsel-trimmed from now through New Years. But realistically, I’m not wearing a holiday party dress every day. That’s where this cozy oversized poncho and floral bootiescome in handy.
