Houndstooth Coat

These photos are from last fall in NYC, but I never got around to sharing the full outfit details! This coat is beyond timeless – you can’t go wrong with houndstooth for fall. I mixed the houndstooth print with all black and brown pieces. I loveeee the combo of black + brown together – it’s often an overlooked combination! Houndstooth Coats For FallA subtle houndstooth print coat is chic and effortless for fall. This one from Abercrombie is classic and under $250. Mango also has a ton of great houndstooth print coats like this one, this one and this one. Not to mention, their coat selection in general is ON POINT this season – can we talk about this one?! Suede BootsI picked up these Sergio Rossi brown suede boots in Paris years ago, and they’ve been such a versatile staple piece in my fall wardrobe. This pair from J.Crew is almost identical. If you’re worried about taking care of the suede, this leather pair is really similar. Leather SkirtsThis skirt is an oldie but a goodie. I love having a few leather skirts on rotation in my closet. I have a short version, a pencil skirt, and a wrap pencil skirt version. This short faux leather skirt for under $50 is a steal! If skirts aren’t your favorite, then a cool vegan leather trouser is a great option.

Shades of Grey

I love a monochromatic outfit anytime of year, but especially in the winter when you can layer layer layer! We need all the layers we can get on the East coast right now because it’s been freeeeezing. My secret to staying warm in the winter is a combination of things, but involves one common factor; cashmere. How To Stay Warm In The WinterCashmere is my secret weapon to combatting the cold. It’s something that is SO worth investing in during the winter. Whether it be a cashmere scarf, a cashmere hat, a cashmere sweater, or a cashmere coat – trust me, you’ll be so glad you splurged. Cashmere is such a high-quality material and really keeps you warm. Some of my favorite cashmere pieces are from White + Warren. I own several of their hats and scarves, and am so impressed at how thick and cozy everything is! I also LOVE Vince’s cashmere sweaters – I own about 7 of them in various colors and they’ve lasted for years. Best Cashmere SweatersIn addition to Vince cashmere sweaters, White + Warren also makes great cashmeres sweaters, as does Intermix and Nordstrom. This cream v-neck Nordstrom Signature sweater is one that I’ve been reaching for all winter long because it’s the perfect length and cut. And this one is a steal for under $50! I bought this Intermix cropped sweater in 3 colors – and love it tucked into pencil skirts and high waisted pants.

A Plaid Pantsuit

A pantsuit is polished, sophisticated and chic. It’s also a flattering style that looks good on any body type. You can bring it to life with a lace cami, a fabulous pump, a turtleneck, or even a red coat like this one. I had a holiday party to head to and didn’t feel like wearing a skirt or dress – so these plaid pieces were perfect. The pop of red brought the look from corporate to festive in under 2 seconds. If you don’t already own a red coat, I love this one, this one and this one. I’ve styled red coats SO many different ways over the years – a few examples are here, here, and here. It’s especially fun to bring it out in December and throw it over a simple all black outfit or classic neutrals. If you’re hesitant to try a pantsuit or feel it’s too formal, then just go with a great plaid trouser. I love a wide leg or tapered plaid trouser – this one is really fun and has sort of a 70s vibe, and this one is affordable and can be worn countless ways. I’m almost done with all of my holiday shopping which is such a relief! If you still need a few last minute gift ideas be sure to check all of my gift guides here! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Casual Layers On Waverly Place

I lived on Waverly Place in the West Village for 2 years and every spring, the cherry blossom trees lining each side of my street would bloom in April.  The blossoms were huge and would only last a few weeks, but every time I walked out my door, they would take my breath away.  I can’t wait to head back to NYC next week and admire these trees which are hopefully in full bloom!  Spring in NYC is the best – and much like the blossoms, it’s very short lived so you’ve gotta appreciate every second of it!  When the weather finally warms up, everyone stays outside – strolling in their sandals and sundresses, filling up parks and cafes with outdoor seating. Some of my favorite West Village restaurants with outdoor seating are; Morandi, Bluestone Lane, Rosemary’s, Hudson Clearwater, Sant Ambroeus, Barbuto, and Buvette.  Morandi has such good Italian food and is always full of fabulous people.  It’s kind of an “it” spot to go after work, but I love that it’s not “sceney” or try-too-hard, instead it’s cozy, classic and neighborhood-y.  Sant Ambroeus on a warm weekend afternoon for brunch is the best, and Barbuto is a great happy hour spot.  You can never go wrong with Rosemary’s and the food at Hudson Clearwater always impresses me – plus it’s a cute first date spot! Casual Layers On Waverly PlaceSince it’s still coat weather in the city, this reversible Banana Republic wool car coat is a great piece.  Sadly it’s sold out, but this one is super similar.  This coat is slightly different since it’s more of a wool trench style, but I absolutely love it and think it would look GORG paired over a white shift dress.  Under my coat, I’m wearing an old cashmere V-neck sweater from Vince and these white L’Agence skinny jeans that have the perfect amount of stretch to them. For accessories – I wore my FAVORITE brown suede booties from Joie.  They are 25% off today only with code FRIENDS and available in all sizes, so I highly suggest snapping them up to wear all year long.  They’re extremely comfortable, soft, and SO flattering on.  They elongate your legs instead of shorten (which a lot of booties tend to do) and you don’t need to break them in (thank goodness!!!)  You can also see how I’ve styled them here and here.
