Vest: Love Token, Sweater: Banana Republic, Skirt: Banana Republic, Boots: Stuart Weitzman, Purse: Fendi
My go-to boot this winter has been this pair of over the knee boots and I absolutely love pairing them with skirts and dresses with a little bit of skin showing. They are a great alternative to tights and easily bring together any look to be that much chicer. So, when I came across this skirt while at Banana Republic recently and I knew it would go great with these boots. For the rest of my look, I chose to pair the skirt and boots with black winter layers. Once Spring is here, I will transition this look by switching out my boots for flats and my winter layers for a silk blouse.

Fur Vest

Fur Vest: Love Token, Sweater: Similar, Jeans: Hudson, Boots: Rag & Bone, Purse: Fendi
The weather this weekend in New York was freezing and made it almost unbearable to go outside, so I spent the majority of my weekend inside. When I did choose to venture outside though, I made sure to wear lots of layers including this fur vest to keep me extra warm. I had been on a search for a while for a good fur vest and was excited when I finally found this one. I have been wearing it non-stop and pairing it with everything from jeans, to skirts, to dresses.

Valentine's Day Brunch

Thursday, February 11, 2016

Valentine’s day is this week and because it falls on a Sunday this year, it’s the perfect time to host a Valentine’s themed brunch. The key to this brunch is to bring in lots of pink and red where possible to make the whole brunch feel festive. I started with my favorite waffle recipe and topped them with fresh strawberries and raspberries for the main dish. Then for drinks, I decided to do a twist on the classic mimosa to fit with the theme, so I paired champagne with cranberry juice (blood orange juice would also be great to use). For the decor, I kept things simple and brought in lots of pink with these gorgeous garden roses and finished things off with some cute pink napkins as part of the table setting.

Snowy Neutrals

Sweater: Similar, Vest: Jcrew, Scarf: Nordstrom, Jeans: Hudson, Boots: Similar, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
I wore this snowy neutral look a couple weekends ago when I went up to Vermont to go skiing for the weekend and loved the mix of the different neutrals. When it is cold and snowy outside, there’s nothing better than a cozy sweater and scarf to keep you warm. This sweater is from last year, but this one is identical and the scarf I picked up from Nordstrom on sale.

Valentine's Day: Gift Guide

Now that it’s February, it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gifts whether it’s for a special someone or just one of your besties. I love the simplicity of this necklace and these earrings! Chocolate is a must for Valentine’s Day and these ones are too cute! The monogram on this compact makes it extra special! This scent is so amazing and smells just like my favorite candle! This clutch is so chic and can also be worn as a cross body! No gal can have too many lipsticks and this reddish pink shade is perfect for the holiday! I own these pajamas and they are so soft and cozy!

This year has been flying by and I can’t believe it’s already February! Now that we are in the middle of Winter, I find myself wearing lots of black. To break things up though, I have been pairing different black textures like leather and fur together to add extra interest to my look. I always find that when dressing monochramatically, it’s best to mix in different textures to keep the outfit from looking too flat.
