Ahhh, Winter in NYC…… can be gloomy, misty, foggy, and dark at times can’t it? But no matter how dark the skies become, there is something so gorgeous about the buildings, architecture, and design of the ciy that always stands out.  Case in point, the beautiful surroundings on this particular gloomy day in February. And, just so you know, it was freezing! I stayed warm by layering my Zara denim shirt over a J Crew t shirt, and my bright cobalt Marc Jacobs coat kept me both warm, and happy with a needed pop of color.  I last wore this gorgeous coat in THIS POST.  (You can buy a Similar coat HERE) I carried my orange clutch from ASOS for an added pop of color.  I have a always loved blue and orange together.This clutch was last seen in THIS POST, paired with denim.  (Similar clutch HERE.) The fringe suede boots are Nine West. They were on sale, and sold out, but you can buy a similar style HERE.  Stay warm!

My Favorite BRIGHT Cold Weather Items! (Who said Winter has to be dull?)

YES, WINTER IS HERE! (I can tell by the fact that my fingers seem to go numb within 3 minutes of leaving my apt.)  I think when the weather gets this cold, and the skies becoming increasingly dark, it’s easy to get a little depressed. (lack of Vitamin D anyone?) But….fear not…..I have a way you can beat the Winter Blues.  Well……it’s more like a way to “brighten”up your gloomy days, and have an excuse to go shopping. 😉 LOL But seriously….I am loving all the neon and bright Winter items I am seeing in stores and online.  I think wearing color in Winter is fun, playful, and lifts your mood. Here are my current favorites that I am craving.  Which are your favorite?? (P.S. Added bonus…most are on SALE!!!)  . XOXOXO
Love, Julie
