Warm, Chunky Sweater Weather

Head to Toe: Sweater, Vince // Jeans, Wrangler // Boots, Bearpaw // Bag, The Sak

Early last week, it was 70 degrees in NYC. By Friday, it was below freezing. That's New England for you, and I'm not really minding the cold front, to be honest. Super chunky, warm, cozy sweaters like this one are helping, along with sheepskin boots. And it's getting me stoked for Thanksgiving which is—what???—next week! I'm ready to say so-long to high waist jeans and hello to post-turkey stretchy pants. All. The. Stuffing.

Leather Leggings and an Exciting Jewelry Launch

Head to Toe: T-shirt, MKT Studio (similar) // Leather leggings, David Learner // Shoes, KOIO // Hand Chain, Midori Linea // Bag, Michael Kors via TJ Maxx

The weather has finally turned in NYC, and it's finally feeling all autumnal and crispy. I'm reacting by piling on the sweaters, boots and scarves, but I haven't resorted to my giant wool coat yet. I snapped these shots earlier this week, before the cold came, when sneakers and a denim jacket did the trick. Knowing the weather these days, it will probably be 70 again next week so don't count my sneaker game out yet.

Thankfully, this not-so bundled look allowed me to show off my new hand chain from Midori Linea, handmade by designer Sakura. This is my first experimentation with a hand chain, and I absolutely love it. The bracelet-and-ring design with Blue Topaz quartz just felt extra special for a Monday, and the light construction didn't feel over-the-top. The brand's relaunched site and exclusive line debuts next week, on Nov. 16, and I am so excited to check out all of the pieces. The best part? Midori Linea is donating a portion of proceeds from sales to victims affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Stay tuned for more on this exciting collab!
