Lady In Red

Outfit Details: Laila Shirtdress, Surlia Over The Knee Boots (dream pair and more affordable pair here), Jord Wood Watch, Anthropologie Short Brim Hat (similar), Faux Fur Vest

Happy Monday! Out of all of the long sleeve dresses I purchased this winter, this one is my favorite. I've already worn it to a work event and date night with Rob. It's one of those dresses that makes you look and feel instantly put together. Perhaps that's due to the cinched waist and built-in belt. I paired it with my over the knee boots which are a true alternative to the Stuart Weitzman pair that I absolutely swoon over. These heels are surprisingly comfortable and don't hurt the arches of my feet like some boots do. 

I love wearing this dress with the belt, but also without for a more loose fitting look. The long sleeves are perfect for the current NYC weather. All this outfit needs is some simple layering and accessories to take you from desk to cocktails (and perhaps a change of shoes)! Cheers to a speedy week.

Valentine's Day Inspired

Valentine's Day is a few weeks away and now is the perfect time to prep for your outfit. Whether you are planning a fun girl's night out or an intimate date with your significant other, there's always an excuse to dress up for it. My tradition with Rob is quite simple. Every year we treat Valentine's Day as the ultimate date night. We choose a new restaurant that we have been dying to try and then we plan the rest of our day around those reservations. It's really that effortless and more so about enjoying each other's company and sipping delicious cocktails. Of course, a surprise bundle of roses doesn't hurt either (hint hint)!  

As you can tell, I definitely don't hold back my vday spirit when it comes to my attire. I typically wear red or pink, but when I laid eyes on this heart print blouse a few days ago I immediately snatched it up with our date in mind. I'm a sucker for bold designs and the playful all-over heart print is super adorable. There is a limited amount of this exact top left in stock so if you are interested in purchasing- act quickly! I've also linked a few more favorites below. Happy shopping!

Shearling Darling

Outfit Details: Loft Shearling Vest (very similar vest here and on sale), Madewell Pullover SweaterSkinny Jeans and Layering Necklaces, DSW booties (similar), Kate Spade Handbag, Ray Ban Aviators

This comfy shearling vest has gotten it's fair share of usage this winter from me. I've even gone as far as layering it over a thick pullover sweater. We've been experiencing a typical New York winter with gusty winds that result in negative temps, so I have been living in cozy knits. What I love the most about shearling vests is their ability to add texture and dimension to an everyday look. They are just as warm as they look and if you don't already own one, what are you waiting for?! 

Shop the full outfit below along with a few other hand-picked shearling vests that I love. Happy shopping!

Polka Dot LBD

Outfit Details: Few Moda Polka Dot Dress (also love this dress) c/o, Miss Selfridge Jacket (similar), Kate Spade Colorblock Crossbody Bag

In my opinion every woman should have a handful of little black dresses hanging in her closet. I have a few, but when I saw this little black dress from Few Moda I knew I needed to add it to my collection. From the sheer polka dot neckline to the edgy-meets-modern sleeves, this dress has all the pretty little details to make you feel special. I wore it out to dinner with Rob recently and kept the accessories simple. When there are intricate details on a dress I like to let them do the talking. 

It's hard to believe that Valentine's day is just around the corner. If you are on the hunt for a fancy date night dress you may want to consider browsing Few Moda's new collection for trendy and affordable pieces. The polka dot dress is unfortunately sold out, but if you're still interested in updating your LBD you will swoon over this cove sheer dress. I promise!

Cheers to a speedy week. Stay warm!

Bold Plaid & Winter White

Outfit Details: Topshop Long Plaid Coat (other options here and here), Madewell Jeans (check out their full denim bar here), JCrew Crop Sweater, Jeffrey Campbell Wedged Heels (similar), Ray Ban Aviators

I've been looking for a long wool coat since the beginning of November and finally found the perfect one when I stopped into topshop in soho this past weekend. This coat is available in neutral colors as well, but I have enough black and grey coats in my wardrobe and felt adding a pop of plaid was necessary. I love the self-tie belt that allows for a quick and easy cinch at the waist. Typically I feel lost in longline coats because I am on the shorter side, but the belt makes all the difference. For a chic daytime look I paired with my favorite Jeffrey Campbell wedges, but admittedly I'll get the most use out of this coat while supporting my quilted vans.

|| Here are a few other plaid coats I'm coveting. Happy Monday! ||

Cozy Neutrals

My winter wardrobe consists of cozy neutrals like this textured white sweater and grey floppy hat from Pink Slate Boutique. I tend to stock up on lots of winter accessories this time of year. Most people start shopping early fall for winter gear but I just can't bring myself to do it. I cling onto every last bit of warm weather that I can. When the cold temps arrive, I'm in complete denial and then eventually cave in to purchase warm gloves and hats.

If you're on the hunt for comfy winter essentials as well, then I bet you'll have some fun browsing through the below. By the way, I'm totally drooling over this shearling and suede vest. Isn't it stunning? Happy shopping!
