The weather in New York has been incredibly unpredictable this past week. One day it feels like spring, and the next day I’m quickly reminded we’re only halfway through winter. At least the sun is now setting a little on the later side. It’s been quite nice taking Blue out on his evening walks when there’s still light out!
Like I mentioned in my last post, I’m a comfort-first kind of girl. On days when I’m not too sure how the weather’s going to hold up, I always opt for an ensemble that’s smart-chic—one that will keep me warm if the temperature suddenly drops, or one that can also be modified the other way if the weather miraculously warms up.
When conquering the unpredictable, I layer.
Given how nice and toasty I already was in my Wolford turtle-neck bodysuit and trusty Levi’s jeans, I probably could have done without my Theory tweed wrap coat. But, with the weather in mind and errands to run, I couldn’t leave my apartment without a soft, comfortable jacket, that pulled everything together and elevated my otherwise casual look.
These Christian Louboutin sock heels, are, in my very humble opinion, to die for—mainly because they’re super comfortable to walk in. Yup, you read that right the first time! Louboutin heels are beautiful, yes, but comfortable? Not always. I couldn’t resist picking up this pair when I realized I could actually move around in them!
Oh, and style trick! If you’re more on the petite end of the human height spectrum, cuff your jeans! The little extra touch makes a big difference. Your jeans will look like they were made for you.
A minimal base or outfit is really the way to go.
You can always dress your look up with accessories. I just grabbed a pair of Krewe sunglasses before heading out the door.
Ear climbers are also a great way to add finishing touches. Mine are from Graziela Gems.
So, yes, if you’re having a little trouble navigating the unpredictable—weather, obligations, and life—I hope this look will help you take fashion challenges off the plate.
Let me know what you think of if you have any specific looks you’d like to see! x
