Mad for Checks, Winter Layering in NYC

Fashion December 14

With Wendy


And we’re back in NYC!  Back to reality and back to the cold!

Oh boy!  Colin and I sure miss the food and weather in Morocco right now!  Even though we were in Morocco in the wintertime, it felt like autumn to us.  A cozy low 70° in the afternoon and low 60° at night.  Now, it’s a 30° hoping for no wind.  We were pretty jet lagged when we got home.  Nothing kitty cuddles couldn’t cure though!

One of the best things I’ve learned living in New York and in cold places in general is that a faux fur vest or shearling vest is a great investment (see this post Double Winter for more vest layering tips).  It doubles up as an inside or outside layering piece, and overall creates such a chic winter look.  And more importantly, it keeps you warm.  Very warm.

I’ve been searching for metallic boots for a very long time and was so happy when I saw these.  I’m usually not a glitter or metallic girl, but love love these textures for the holidays.  They just get you in the holiday mood and spirit!

Happy holidays everyone and thank you so much for reading!
