Wine Wrap Coat

Coat:  T Tahari, Dress:  Free People, Bag:  French Connection (old, similar here), Tights:  Express, Shoes:  Zara (old, love this similar pair)

I've been on the hunt for a wrap coat for a while now. I had ordered several in the past, but none seemed to work out. With wrap coats, I feel there is a fine line between chic outerwear and plush bathrobe.

I finally came across this reasonably priced, wine-colored winner.

Hope everyone is enjoying the 12 days of Christmas...only 9 days to go!


Festive Flannel

Sweater:  Forever 21, Top:  J.Crew, Pants:  Nordstrom, Boots:  Stuart Weitzman, Bag:  Mansur Gavriel, Earrings:  c/o LilahV

Sixteen days until Christmas and I can't ~ nor do I want to ~ shake that festive feeling. When deciding what to wear in the morning, I find myself reaching for my seasonal favorites {holiday red being my color of choice}. 

No doubt you will start seeing some sequins and sparkle soon.

Happy Monday everyone!


Black & Winter White

Coat:  c/o Sheinside, Top:  The Limited (old, similar here), Jeans:  H&M (similar here), Beanie:  Urban Outfitters, Bag:  Manur Gavriel, Booties:  Matiko (also here)

Hello and happy December readers! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and enjoyed a few extra days off as much as I did. I really feel relaxed and revived - a great way to start the Christmas countdown.

As you can see from the pictures, we ended up having a white Thanksgiving in NJ. I didn't mind as we stayed local this year, and the scene at our house was absolutely enchanting.

I've been trying to get my hands on this Mansur Gavriel bag for months now, only to find that my mother had joined the waiting list at Steven Alan and snagged me one for my birthday. I was afraid that the large tote would be too big, but to my delight the size is just right. It added the perfect little pop of color to my black & white ensemble. 

You'll definitely see this one on major repeat all holiday season long. What are some of your winter favorites?


Blue Suede Shoes

In the words of Elvis,

"Don't you step on my blue suede shoes."

Cheers to a super-short work-week!

Whether it's Belgian style with a hefty scoop of vanilla ice cream, or in the form of a cozy turtleneck, there is no denying my love for all things waffle.

And I picked up this waffle knit sweater just in time because the temperature dropped below freezing this weekend.

Looks as though Mother Nature may have a white Thanksgiving in store for NJ.

Happy Monday everyone!



Coat: Vintage (similar here, and here for $65!!), Top:  Aritzia (old, similar here), Skirt:  Nordstrom ~ on sale!, Boots:  Stuart Weitzman, Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace:  c/o LilahV, Lariat Necklace:  Forever 21

These boots may be called the 5050, but I was 100% elated to receive them as a birthday gift from my wonderful husband.

While I'm definitely a boot girl, I am super picky about boots. They have to fit my calves perfectly, which {with these chicken legs} is no easy feat.

I can remember my mother purchasing my first pair of good boots in high school. We searched high and low and far and near, but it was just impossible to find a pair of boots that would fit my {then even more twiggy} legs. We finally purchased the pair with the smallest circumference we could find, and then took them to a cobbler to have them taken in!

I know, I know...woe is me.

Anyhow, flash forward to these calf hugging beauties. I didn't know if I would like the elastic at the back, but once I put them on it was love at first step.

Happy Monday everyone!
