Peachy

peachy full B

Neutrals are fabulous!  Easy, versatile and usually posses a comfort factor.  It’s funny, but when I scan my closet, a large majority of my favorite pieces are grey, black, blush or white.  I’m all for a bold pop of color, but you can never go wrong layering on classic basics in softer tones.

I was tempted to go for this sweater is black, but I loved the peachy, blush tone and am glad I did.  It so comfy and will be on high rotation as a perfect neutral.

Getting Warmer…

get warm close

Last year’s Winter was quite literally unbearable-especially coming from Sydney.  Fortunately this year has not been as bad….yet.  It’s still felt like a sub-zero deep freeze stepping outside this past week and throughout the weekend, but layering a warm and fuzzy accessory definitely kept me cozy.

I have inherited a few real fur pieces over the years from my Nanna which are amazing, but I also love a really good faux version.  I snapped this one up two years ago and love the color and texture.  Regardless of your view on faux vs. real, adding texture combined with the additional warmth always elevates any outfit.

Lavender

I firmly believe long stretches of cold can affect the mood and coming from Sydney, I was completely unprepared for what lay in store here.

I found the best recourse was a fluffy lavender scarf partnered with a cozy sweater dress.  It’s still sub zero but at least I’m warm and swaddled in a happy color 🙂

Black and white is such a no brainer for me, and when I came across this fantastic little shirt dress, I knew the  possibilities were endless.  Tattered denim and a pop of red pulled everything together.

Although New York in Winter can be beautiful, I have come to the conclusion I am much more comfortable in a warmer climate.  I am so cold natured and have chihuahua-like tendencies (shivering incessantly) whenever the temperature dips below freezing.  I’ve managed to find fashionable salvation in my leather jacket paired with a warm and fuzzy accessory.  I couldn’t help hearing “take my breath away” in my head with the addition of mirrored aviators 🙂

With our flight just hours away, I’m getting excited at the thought of being home for the holidays.  This time of year is always hectic and usually includes travel of some mode.  That being said, I knew this moto-inspired sweater/coat was the perfect mix of cozy and stylish for my flight.

Safe travels to everyone and happy holiday lovelies!
