Walk The Line

There comes a time in New York City where you wake up and staying warm is all you can think of. Cotton doesn’t always cut it so it’s time to pull out the big guns in your closet: wool, chunky knits, faux fur, and ICYMI turtlenecks. This Loeffler Randall skirt is the ideal A-line (aka universally flattering) winter skirt. It’s midi length and gives you that body warmth you crave.

Wool can have a hard time looking sexy so I paired a crop sweater to give my weather conscious ensemble some much needed spunk.  As much as I love me some Ugg boots, they’re not exactly office appropriate. If you must, it’s best to wear them for your commute and pack your shoes of the day in your bag (I do this all the time). Whenever you’re feeling sloppy, I recommend to keep your footwear sleek and polished with a pair of heeled booties or one of your shinier, more special work heels.

For those of us staying indoors on the East Coast this weekend during the impending snowstorm: Stay Warm! Stock up on snacks and put those sweats and socks to work, I know I will.

Bend It Like Budget

In neutrals. It’s as easy as one, two, three.

How do you pair up your closet neutrals?

Happy Friday!

New decade, new hair!

I let my hair do all the talking this weekend, wearing a black bodycon dress, my season after season booties and a pop of white to welcome Summer!

What do you think of my new look? 🙂
