Black & Navy





It's getting colder here in NYC, so layering is essential for staying warm. I find that I'm usually either dressed well and I'm freezing, or warm and I compromise on the style side. Not in this outfit. Navy and black had my back. Although I was pretending I was ok in the last shot, I was freezing! All for a good #ootd shot. Priorities, people. Priorities.

Winter Coats that Work

Yes, it is that time of year where that we complain about when it gets too hot for a couple weeks in the summer. I've seen a lot of posts about coats, but I am pretty sure those are for people that live in California or Florida.
Not for us anywhere near this Polar Vortex life.

Here is a round up of my favorite coats to stay warm & stylish in!

1. Red Asos Coat - Made with soft wool and longer in length to keep you warm all over. I've been eyeing this one for awhile, might have to just take the plunge. You could really dress this up or down. I would wear it with a destroyed denim, black backpack and marled knit beanie.

2. White Mango Coat (on sale!)-This is a really nice wrap around coat that is a wool blend. When shopping for a good winter coat, check the fiber contents. Look for wool/poly blends that hold up well for a few years and keep you warm!

3. Zara Toggle Parka- This is what the majority of people in winter wear. I'm not a big fan of the puffer look, so I have something similar to this for when I can't be bothered trying to layer under a thin coat. Great for everyday work to home. Because I'm not trying on a Monday, props to those who do.
4. J.Crew Wool Hooded Jacket- This jacket comes in a variety of colors, and stands out in a sea of black coats. It is also made with better quality wools (yes, there is a difference in wool types) so you will get your money's worth. Plus, J. Crew always has great coupon codes, so you can get a discount off of it if you keep your eyes peeled (my life story).

Hope you enjoyed. Stay warm out there!

NYE





It's the last day of the year and I can't believe it's here. I am so lucky for the places I've been, people I've met, and things I've seen in 2014. I can't wait for 2015, I plan on it being a very important year in my life.  Rounding off this post with a few pics I've been holding onto from Christmastime.  I'm looking forward to more exploring and experiencing this amazing city and world in 2015.

Wishing everyone a wonderful 2015!
