Colorful Sweater Weather [Featuring Tom Ford]

It’s pretty clear to see that my love for sweaters is strong. My love with bold colors on the other hand is still growing but I’m starting to open up to the idea of incorporating more color into my outfits. I knew I wanted to wear something colorful as a contrast on my normally very blue and grey Instagram feed but I wasn’t sure where to start. I had a look through my wardrobe and found this sweater that always just seems to be sitting there collecting dust. I tried it on and fell in love all over again. The slightly oversized fit along with the beautiful shade of purple matched perfectly with slim black trousers and a black overcoat. So if you’re like me and struggle with color then starting with a sweater is 
definitely the way to go. Thanks for dropping by!

Snowy Soho Style









Snowy Soho Style

This snowy struggle is real. Seriously, I love snow and I’d choose it any time over rain but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s cold and quickly turns to a dirty mess. Exploring in a blizzard sure is fun but only if you’re properly prepared. As much as I love my wool topcoats I knew they wouldn’t be a good choice so I grabbed my trusty long parka. I wanted to stay comfortable so I paired it with a scuba knit sweatshirt and a pair of light wash denim. I know ripped jeans and white kicks might not come to mind when thinking of the perfect blizzard gear but it worked just fine for me. I finished off the look with a few important accessories and hit the streets. I hope you guys like the look.

Corduroy Blazer & Tortoise Shell Eyeglasses [Featuring EyeBuyDirect]

[Hat] Bailey Hats [Shoes] Doucals [Watch] Daniel Wellington

For an outfit that looks pretty simple there is actually quite a bit going on. First off this blazer is stunning. A corduroy cream double breasted blazer! I wouldn’t call it a must have but it’s become a favorite of mine for both casual and suited up looks. Sure I may be wearing paisley printed pants but the whole outfit seemed a bit bland to me. Luckily accessories fixed that problem. I started off with the vintage inspired hat and a few bracelets but something was still missing. I would normally reach for sunglasses but because of this dark NYC weather I knew it was a perfect time to try out my new eyeglasses from EyeBuyDirect. They framed my eyes beautifully and really added that extra something that I thought this outfit needed. Stayed tuned next week for a full review. I hope you like the outfit and thanks for reading!

Dark Winter Shades





[Blazer] New England 83 [Pants] Baldessarini [Shirt] Zara [Tie] H&M [Shoes] Clae


I remember when I first started blogging I wrote about wearing bright colors on dark winter days to add a little sunshine and happiness to the world. My stance on this has changed a bit in the last 2 years. I love white and cream especially when worn in the snow but darker colors are meant for winter and there is no use trying to change that. I’ve been wearing black, navy and dark grays much more this winter than in the previous ones and I have realized that they aren’t boring colors at all. In fact because of pattern mixing and endless shades you can have tons of fun with these darker shades. This blazer or any boldly checked blazer is a great piece to have in rotation. It easily works with dark shirts and sweaters and can be a great transitional piece in the spring because of it’s heavy weight.
