Winter Casual

Hi everyone, welcome back!  I am beyond obsessed with this jacket – the fun cropped length makes it perfect for a dress (like I wore here) or high waisted jeans!

Dressed Up Denim

Hey everyone, welcome back!  These high waisted jeans have been my new go-to’s over the past month or so.  The first time I wore them I was with my mom and my sister, and both of them asked me to send them the link since they liked them so much!  Another one of my favorite cold weather pieces is this tissue turtleneck from J.Crew.  I love how thin and fitted it is, making it the perfect piece to tuck into jeans or a skirt!

Sweater Expert

IMG_0622IMG_0607IMG_0611

I know there is technically no official title of ‘Sweater Expert’, but if there were I would definitely be in contention for that crown.  I have tried sweaters from all over- online shops, brick and mortar stores; high end and low end- searching for the ones that will get me through the miserably cold New England winter.  After such an elaborate search over the past few years, I can say with complete confidence that GAP Inc. brands make my favorite and most reliable sweaters across the board- I know that I can walk into an Old Navy, GAP, or Banana Republic store and be 100% satisfied with their sweater selection at any given time.  I recently wore some of my favorites on the blog here and here!  When I walked into Banana Republic and saw these turtlenecks displayed on the front table, the only question I had was which color to buy it in.  Orange, my favorite color, ultimately won out- but it was definitely a close race!

Brushed Plaid

IMG_0035IMG_0065IMG_0114IMG_0096

My sister recently called me out when I described myself as a ‘coat person’, retaliating with ‘you’re an everything person’ (she’s not mistaken).  However I definitely am a coat person.  During the harsh New England winter, basically everyone sees me in my coat, so why not wear a statement making one that I adore?  This plaid wool topper from Ann Taylor fits the bill perfectly- makes a statement, keeps me warm, and dresses up office wear perfectly and effortlessly.

Outfit Details – Coat: Ann Taylor | Shirt: GAP (old, similar here) | Pants: Topshop | Heels: Mossimo | Bag: Banana Republic Factory Store (similar here) | Earrings: Ralph Lauren (old, similar here) | Necklace: Nadri (sold out, similar here and here)

Thanks so much for reading! Have a great weekend!

Be Bright

I love all of the pink coats that have been popping up this month.  They turn the grayest of winter days into a bright and happy runway.  I particularly enjoy pairing pink with gray, like I did here, but it would also be great with black and white for a sleek look.

The Fairest (Isle) Of Them All

IMG_3834 IMG_3840 IMG_3845 IMG_3853

 

 

Happy Sunday, world! Fair Isle sweaters are such a huge weakness of mine (I cannot stop buying them year after year!)  I’m back in NYC this week visiting my family, so when I picked up this sweater at Old Navy a few weeks ago, it instantly reserved a spot in my suitcase.  It is perfect for Christmastide celebrations- still festive and fun, but cozy and not fussy.  With a car full of gifts and cookie trays, I was really tight on luggage space for myself when packing for this week.  Fair Isle sweaters, with their fun patterns, are perfect to wear on their own; so I didn’t need to worry about trying to find space for extra accessories and layers.  However this sweater is perfect for layering and accessorizing when you have your own closet available- check out some of my favorite ways below!
