Pink and blush have gotten under my skin (I’m in love with my cashmere blush sweater), and I’ve wonder what the reason is. I think most of us, or at least the “us” who tend to wear a lot of neutrals, have been starved for color. And this season’s particular shade of pink is a safe neutral that works well with other neutrals.

So I’ve embraced the blush trend wholeheartedly and love styling my pink and blush pieces with this season’s other great trend – ripped jeans.

madewell tote hunter rain bootsDressing for wet and cold weather has usually been a challenge for me. For one thing, I resisted getting rain boots for a very long time because I didn’t find them stylish enough. Plus, I don’t like rain jackets. So, staying dry and warm is not always easy for me.

But now I have a new-found love and respect for rain boots. After I moved to New England, having rain boots became a necessity. My favorite rain-proof outfit now is a hooded field jacket (for wet spring and fall days) or a hooded wool coat for those cold and wet winter days, plus my trusty Hunter boots. I found a navy pair with a matte finish that I love. And they pair perfectly with my (somewhat water-resistant) navy hooded wool coat from J. Crew. And to keep my leather shoulder bag dry, I make sure to put it under my coat to hide it from the rain.

Hunter rain boots; Hooded toggle coat (similar); Cropped chunky sweater (similar); Faux leather leggings; Madewell leather tote; Chunky hat (similar); Rayban sunglasses.

A Wool Poncho for Layering in Cold Weather

jcrew wool poncho in greyThrowing a wool poncho over a chunky sweater is a chic way to keep warm during cold days. I’m a big fan of layering. First, you can create new looks out of things you have in your closet anyways, and second, I love to pay with textures.

Holiday Brights

holidaybrights_01The holidays are upon us, and for my holiday outfit this year I’m going for merry and bright. I know a lot of people shop for a new holiday outfit, but this year I decided to forgo shopping (I’ve done a lot of that lately) I pulled this outfit together from my favorite bold and bright pieces. (My only bold and bright pieces?)
