Ok NYC, you proved your point. You are hands down the coldest city I’ve ever been in and it’s only December. I am truly terrified of what January and February are capable of after experiencing this piercing temperature. You know kind of cold that you can feel in your bones? Ya, that.
The secret to layering in this impossible weather is to layer underneath your outfit. You would never know that I have my favorite thick & cozy leggings underneath these patchwork jeans as well as two long sleeved turtleneck tops underneath this velvet chartreuse jacket. I don’t want to take away from my outfit so adding warmth underneath it all is a must!
The moment I laid my eyes on Soho, nearly 12 years ago, I knew I had instantly become a Soho girl. Out of everywhere in NYC, Soho still remains my favorite spot to be. The energy there is so contagious I find myself walking around, dipping in and out of shops for hours and hours on end. I personally find the architecture and cobble stone streets so enchanting. I’m most definitely one of those people that just stop in the middle of all the traffic and hustle and bustle to breathe everything in. It’s only until someone is honking at me that I step back into reality and move.
About the look: I’m loving my denim in this post. It’s a trusty brand that I’ve loved for a long time now called Pilcro, an Anthropologie exclusive. It’s one of the few denim brands that have petite options which is a life saver for me. Shout out to the petite girls out there. I gotcha back. Can we mention these VELVET BOOTIES though? Dead. I didn’t even hesitate for a second when I saw them online. That’s how I know they’re meant to be mine. I can’t wait to style these even more this winter.
I love to sport a sweater dress in this crisp sweater weather. I especially love this dusty shade of blue paired with my all time favorite white booties. Instant comfort for a city girl. Once I was all done running errands in this get up, I came home, put dinner in the crock pot, slid on my favorite leggings and typed up this blog post. Talk about an easy day-to-night outfit transition.
Keeping this blog post short and sweet. Hope you enjoy the photos and don’t forget to check out the links below to shop my outfit!
My husband. My Finley. My family back home in New Mexico. My marriage. My friends. My health. My faith. I have so many things to be thankful for, regardless of the struggles I’ve faced. I love this time of the year because we’re reminded on what really matters in this life. It’s about love and its about laughter. Wyatt and I have made a lot of sacrifices since moving to NYC and I’ve learned that it’s not the material things that matter. It’s our family that brings me that unimaginable love and satisfaction. It’s Finley sleeping on my chest. It’s walks with Wyatt in Central Park. Those little things are what make my life worth living. I’m so grateful, unexplainably grateful, for my life.
I’m also thankful for each one my readers, for encouraging me, supporting me and loving me. You guys are the best. Happy Thanksgiving sweet friends. I hope you enjoy every moment of it. Wyatt and I will be attending Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning and then spending the rest of the day munching and napping- just the two of us…and Finley.
Thanksgiving is around the corner. Christmas is quickly approaching. It’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear to all those special family gatherings, work parties and other sweet holiday celebrations. This is such a magical time of the year. Not only do you want to show up for it, you want to show up looking and feeling radiant! Your outfit should be dazzling, daring and BRILLIANT! This colorful and festive dress will most definitely be worn to my husbands work holiday party and beyond. I think this flashy little number can be worn outside the holiday season as well with its chic striped print and off the shoulder detail. I mean it. It was love at first sight. I also added this statement lip shaped clutch for a touch of merry-merry red.
Oh holiday season. I am ready for you. New York City is such a wonderful place to be this time of year. I can’t wait.
