This is one of my go-to outfits in the winter for when I'm feeling like throwing something cozy and comfortable on, but still want to look cute and put together! Thick knits and thigh high socks are two of my favorite types of pieces to combine in colder weather. This cropped sweater is from Missguided and it happened to match perfectly with my knit skirt from Urban Outfitters! They are both great pieces worn separately, but together they form a very adorable two piece sweater ensemble :)

Whenever I wear grey though, I always feel the need to add a pop of color, so I threw on this color block scarf I acquired from Poshmark! My burgundy thigh high socks from Soxxy also helped make this look more lively, while my platform boots helped add height while still keeping it comfortable. To further add to all these burgundy tones in my outfit, I put on this deep red lipstick from Shien Cosmetics! I love their lipsticks because of how vibrantly and smoothly the colors apply, and also how long lasting they are. I definitely recommend trying them! <3 

And my purse–I actually got this beauty from my mom's closet! Recently I've started becoming more of a bag person so expect to see many more purses and such in future looks! Until next time, I hope you all are keeping warm! x

On days when it's not absolutely freezing in New York, I get to dress like I would have were it a California winter—and that's something that certainly makes me happy. However, I'd be lying if I said I went outside in the 40 degree weather like this without having cleverly layered up. Heat tech layers hidden underneath a big sweater, spandex under skirts, and layering over the knee socks over 2 or 3 layers of nude tights is the formula as to how I was able to keep warm in this ensemble yet still be able to flash a peek of skin!

Wine red is a color I've recently developed an affinity for, as you can see in my pairing of this beautiful neoprene jacket from ShopAkira with this luscious cable knit sweater from Tobi! I love the combination in this jacket of such a unique material in a bold color with a classic shape. This sweater, with it's armor like cables, has also won a permanent spot in my closet.

I'm still working on perfecting how to maintain that princess/goddess type of look in my outfits when in a New York winter rather than California's year round sunshine, but I'd say this look is a step in the right direction! ;) And a special shoutout to my amazing photographer and friend Michelle for these beautiful shots!

Sometimes two things go together so well that you start wondering if they are really just mere coincidences or not. Honestly, I don't think I could have found a better piece of wall art to photograph this dress with! This is one of the looks I shot when I was back home for winter break—hence being able to walk around in just flowy dresses and sneakers.

This vibrant geometric print dress from Talulah reminds me so much of a video game world and I love that about it!! I especially love the romantic mood in this piece that comes from the asymmetrical cut paired with skinny straps. My yellow statement necklace from Topshop matched so well with it (dare I say that the beads kind of even look like Tetris pieces to me?)

My Pizza ring is from Groundscore, a jewelry brand that makes statement jewelry with your favorite words such as "Fries," "Guacamole," "Coffee," and so much more.  If you've ever had a love so passionate for a particular food or drink, Groundscore probably has a ring for it! Lastly, I'm sporting this amazing cardholder from Heather Haber which I still can't get over! After discovering these on Instagram and falling in love with them, the designer, Heather, was so kind as to send me one of my own and I don't think there is a more deserving cardholder to carry my Parsons ID ;) She hand makes them to order and can make them with any color glitter you want. I think these would make a great gift either for a friend or maybe just for yourself! 

As far as New York goes, I am currently freezing everyday and recently averaging 4 hours of sleep but I'm having an amazing spring semester so far and hope your 2015 is going just as swell!
