I celebrated the Fall-like temps  by wearing every single pink item I could find in my closet.  Overkill?  I was happy to be able to wear my leather jacket, although, after these pics were snapped, I had to put my fur vest over it. It’s warmer then usual, but it’s not Spring yet! I wore my Jeffrey Cambell Litas because they are tall enough to hover over the snow, and there is rubber on the bottom.  Believe it or not, they are as comfortable as sneakers!  My top and necklace are J Crew.  I love their long sleeve knit shirts and sweaters.  Their colors and patterns are great for layering. Speaking of which, have you seen the images of the J Crew show at NYFW? ***DROOLING***  I will be posting my fave looks from NYFW later this week. Stay warm!!!!
XOXOXO

The Fashion Minx and The Sequin Cinderella in NYC!!!

Julie nicola 83 The Fashion Minx and The Sequin Cinderella in NYC!!!

So excited to finally meet Nicola in person!!!

I was lucky enough to meet and work with the fabulous, and well known Irish blogger Nicola from The Sequin Cinderella! This was Nicola’s first trip to NYC, and she loved it! For our shoot, we chose Times Square, the heart of NYC as our location.  We chose to wear skirts and dresses mixed with boots which give off a tough/feminine look- which is perfect for this city. We hit Sephora, walked around Times Square, and had fun with some police officers! Of course, we also talked shopping, finding deals in the city, and ways to protect yourself from the harsh NYC winter temps while still showcasing your style! Read on for details on on what we were wearing and our tips for chic winter style! xoxoxo

It was a very cold night, which called for a lot of layering! I am a huge fan of fur vests because you can layer them under, or above a coat or jacket! (That night I did both)  I wore my blue feather vest from Topshop.  I love the texture of it, and it’s super warm!  There are tons of adorable fur vests out there, both real and faux. I also love THIS ONE, THIS ONE,  and THIS ONE. Nicola wore a gorgeous lace dress from Zara with studded boots by Chiara Ferragni. I love the look of a feminine lace dress mixed with tough biker style boots.  Similar dresses HERE, and HERE.  Also, I love these studded boots by ASH.   I went with a cobalt blue theme, wearing my blue Celine (similar bag HERE) , blue J Crew top, and my blue bubble necklace. Oh….and my cobalt blue YSL ARTY RING.  (They were recently discontinued, so if you are lusting after one, get one now!!)
