Ah, November. You were freezing this time around, and because of this— I had a fun time experimenting with layers this season. Being a full time NYC resident for the first winter in over a year, I’ve remembered what it’s like to pack on tights under ripped jeans and comfy sweaters. Luckily, I found a couple of great pieces to help me along the way, as well as a few homey items to make my little UES space a little cozier. Here’s what I’ve been obsessing over this past month.



UO Out From Under Bree BodysuitGoing out is probably the hardest part of dressing for me when it’s cold — simply because it’s hard to keep track of a lot of layers unless you have a coat check. That’s where a great long sleeve body suit comes in — like this cute yellow zip one from Urban. It’s super comfy, looks cute and striking and is pretty warm with long sleeves.


Star Stockings — Disclaimer upfront, I discovered these babies in a beauty PR pack and fell instantly in love. I have so much fun with adding little details (like printed socks like this) to my wardrobe when it’s chilly out, and I can’t wait to pair these under boots or strappy shoes for months to come.

Accessories + Home


Gold Hoops from Lindsey — Quite apropos, since I used to steal Lindsey’s hoops a ton last year — she gifted me these pretty wire detailed ones for my birthday and I’m totally in love. They compliment any look in a breeze, and even wear well under a beanie.


Surell Fox Fur Earmuffs — I got these babies for Christmas a few years ago (from my beloved grandfather), and I got to break them out early this year for holiday parties alike. These are so incredibly warm, super stylish and they give any look an instant retro vibe.


Byredo Burning RoseThis gorgeous candle is on my list next to light, and I love it because of it’s chic packaging and stunning smell. Such a great gift for this year for anyone looking to add a little luxe touch to their space.

“Therefore my age is as a lusty winter, Frosty, but kindly.”

Cheers, and happy December!
