ALTERNATIVE FACT: WINTER IS OVER

It looks like some winter weather is finally making an appearance–I smell snow! We’ve been lucky with such a mild winter, it’s almost freaky how warm it has been. And I’ll admit, I’ve definitely over-worn my knits this winter; I’m just as tired of seeing me in an oversized turtleneck as my colleagues are. Which is why I was ecstatic to find this brown knit sweater accented by white cotton ruffles at the bottom and top. I love a high neck, so if I can’t wear my turtlenecks this ruffle accent will do! Instead of styling this with ole’ faithful blues, I slipped on some leather leggings and stepped up my shoe game with these black suede OTK boots. Not only are they comfortable, but they make me feel like a boss babe. I know we’re all pretty sick of layers and knits, but hang on just a little longer, spring is right around the corner. And in the meantime, invest in alternative sweaters like this one!

WINTER SCHMINTER

The winter weather is finally here and I can’t say I’m super thrilled about it, especially considering the heat in my car isn’t working. Anyway, this will be my second winter in Boston and I have to say I’ve been spoiled. Last year, was super mild and this December we’ve seen 60-degree weather! Fortunately, I’m prepared. Not only do I have several puffer coats, but I have this cozy long down puffer vest. It has been a godsend. I’ve been wearing it to yoga and work–it’s the perfect top layer to take the chill out of your bones. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like the longer length, considering I’m short, but it fits perfectly and not to mention, it keeps my booty warm. In addition to layers, it’s important to keep that noggin cozy. Which is why I invested in yet, another faux fur mom beanie. Instead of sticking to my neutral norm, I went bold and picked up this coral/pink color. It adds the perfect pop to any outerwear look.

P.S. If you’re in the North Jersey area, aka Morris County, stop by Ladyfingers to pick one of your own up!
