winter wonders

after a week in Cali, i am (hopefully) headed back east– and apparently straight into NY’s first snow.

since jet blue isn’t currently cooperating, i stole time to round up a few winter ready picks necessary to get back in the city swing of things. compared to sunshine and 60, i’ve realized that NY life has not only pushed me towards all black everythinggg, but also more toward a blend of function & glam. it makes me crave a little ~edge~ that warmer weather fashions just don’t allow.

currently, i am loving the idea of a fancy print coat or embellished party sweater with some joggers and sneaks– comfy and cozy, slush friendly, and also holiday ready without trying too hard. and as a PSA for anyone in need of a more casual jacket, ive been wearing this tory sport-like bargain over yoga clothes and chunky knits for the last two weeks straight! fingers crossed i finally get out of this airport. Xx

1– metallic sneaks 2– cashmere joggers 3– leather weekend bag

4– miracle cure (i have been slathering this everywhere!, including painfully dry post-shave legs)

5– leather dress 6–pom pom beanie

7–shearling platforms (perfect for a winter commute) 8–leopard jacket

9– beaded sweater 10– crystal drops 11–matte lipstick 12– cocoon coat

sunshine state (of mind)

after a cold, and somewhat uneventful, January (sorry there’s been little to write about in the fashion department; i’ve been wearing the same leggings, stretchy jeans, cashmere sweaters and giant black coat for the last six weeks), the weather gods smiled upon me with four days of sunny and 65 on a trip to san francisco. the exceptionally good weather, even by california standards, was exactly the thing i needed to pull me out of my gloom and back onto the sunny side of the street.

as i gear up for my next pilgrimage to a warmer climate, this time down to the sunshine state for one of my bestie’s birthdays next week, i’ve decided i need to incorporate some sartorial sunshine into my suitcase. whatever your locale, a healthy dose of yellow is guaranteed to brighten your day. check out my top packing picks below…
