Weekend Getaway: Day One

If you follow my blog, you know I love sportswear and fur.  Since I am literally the least sporty person I know, my Adidas pants are paired with layers of luscious fur.  Here is a little glimpse from my first full day in New York.
 On cold days like today two furs are better than one.  I paired my H&M fur top under TopShop fur coat (similar).

 Another pair of Sunscape Eyewear sunnies! I am in love.




 This morning began with a Tompkins Square Bagel and a Almond Latte from Matcha Bar (someone open this in Chicago).

 Next, we headed off to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to check out the Wythe Hotel and Brooklyn Bowl.


After dinner we headed to Momofuku Milk Bar for some cereal milk soft serve.

Princess of Prints

Outerwear shouldn't be just something you throw on as you run out the door.  Creating looks around statement coats will have you looking like a winter street style star.  
 Turtlenecks are obviously a staple in my wardrobe but I loved how these contrasting prints fit together.   Just the right amount of this Topshop top is shown, so it doesn't overwhelm the patterns on the coat.
This coat is from Anthropologie (similar) many years ago and it will never go out of style.  The florals in deep colors are perfect for winter, and it will never blend in with the drab winter scenery. 


 I am wearing a simple pair of cargo pants (similar) with a neutral lace up Miz Mooz boot (similar).  The top of this outfit packs so much print, it is important to keep the bottom simple.
 My glasses are by Sunscape Eyewear.

Looking a Little Puffy

We all know that point in the winter where you really want to look good but you have mentally given up.  If that is how you feel, this is the look for you.
 I have paired this quilted skirt by Anastasia with your average black puffy coat for the sassiest way to keep warm yet.


 I am loving all the two piece sets coming out now and this is the perfect way to build your own!

Transitional Style

Although it is in the single digits I am already mentally transitioning into spring.  I love transitional styles because it forces you to play with layers and pairing different silhouettes than usual.  I am loving the long sweater over the midi skirt but since I am short, I went with a sweater that is not too long in order to keep some length in my legs.

Large patterns all over prints will make any ordinary piece look high end and will catch people's eyes.  This midi skirt is from Akira Chicago (similar).  This winking purse is by Akira (similar).

I have always had a love for sunglasses ever since I saw Princess Mia's collection in her out of this world closet (Princess Diaries 2 duh).  They are a great way to amp up any look, this pair is by Sunscape Eyewear.

 Chelsea boots are such an easy piece to throw on with any look, I finally snagged a pair in my size!

Is Shopping A Sport?

As Winter trudges on, don't let the weather drag your style down.  This look is perfect for a frozen day of shopping in the city.  I paired a simple black turtle neck and ombre coat with sporty leather joggers and Adidas snow boots to create a sporty chic look. You will be able to run to every sale in style.

A long coat for winter is a must but it doesn't have to make you look like a sleeping bag.  I love the ombre effect of this coat (similar), you will match the dirty snow perfectly!

A black turtleneck from Gap and black pants have become my goto look this season.  For a cozier look I wear knit pants and for a more urban look I wear leather joggers (similar).

Not all snow boots have to be clunky and dorky, and these boots definitely show that.  These Adidas snow boots make this look more accessible to wear everyday.

Macarons for One

It is Valentine's Eve and I have already begun the festivities.  Valentine's have been handed out and the endless desserts have begun.  Today, I stopped by Sugar Fixe in Lincoln Park for macarons, my favorite treat!

 I have major heart eyes for these heart-shaped sunglasses by Sunscape Eyewear.

 This sweater is by French Connection, (similar).  A lip print is a sassy take on the classic red Valentine's Day heart.
