Happy New Year everyone! So excited to be back…and in black. While you can never go wrong wearing all black, making a head to toe all-black look not gloomy, can be tricky. With a few simple additions, you can definitely take your look to the next level. Think about mixing luxe textures and materials, like leathers & velvet, with furry coats. I love this black fur parka because of the unexpected pop of orange and the little hint of red on the arm. All you need now is a classic pair of boots and of course, the perfect pair of black denim. Finding THE pair of black denim takes time. I look for a high waisted-fit, because they instantly elongate the leg. I also look for a small leg opening, so they hug the ankle and can work with a Chelsea boot, ankle boot and even an OTK boot.
The High Rise Skinnys from Mott & Bow definitely took these key features, that I look for in a pair of denim, and created a fit that is absolutely on point. The denim used to create the High Rise Skinny, makes these jeans fit like a glove. There is just the right amount of stretch, without compromising the texture and look of the black denim. It is hard to find a pair of black JEANS, that do not look like you are wearing black leggings. But, Mott & Bow nailed it. Oh and did I mention that this luxury denim is sold at a very reasonable price point as well? Now that is something you just cannot beat. I swear by finding a great pair of black jeans, because they truly are one of the most versatile and flattering staples you can have in your closet.

When the weather gets this cold, (especially in New York) the only things you should be putting on are a knit sweater and a big cozy jacket. If you are looking for a sweater that is a step up from just your ordinary knit sweater, this 525 America stripped piece has the cutest silhouette and button detailing on the shoulders. The white stripes and black buttons on the shoulder give the sweater a nautical feel, without being too overbearing. Now all you need is the perfect faux fur coat to bundle up in. I have always loved mixing black and brown, so I was immediately drawn to this Karen Kane coat because of the gorgeous camel color….and not to mention it’s one of the coziest coats I have ever owned. It can be paired with so many different looks, but I knew that an all black look was really going to make this Karen Kane piece pop! The day we shot this look its was in the high 30’s, but with all my warm layers….I barley felt a thing.
Oh…and can we talk about this amazing Chloe + Isabel choker?! I love a black and brown ensemble with gold accessories and this Petits Bijoux Station choker was the perfect piece. It is such a modern piece and defiantly a must-have! Chloe + Isabel have so many amazing pieces and you have to check out there website here.
I hope you are all having a happy Saturday! I am excited to share this post with you guys. It is finally the holiday season, and with the holiday season comes holiday parties, Christmas gatherings, festive get togethers….you see where I am going with this. This means you need to have a few festive holiday looks in your arsenal to dress up the season! Here is an idea for one of the looks that you should definitely try! You can’t go wrong with this classic black and grey look for any holiday party! I am absolutely in love with the bow detailing on this chunky knit and the ruffle trim on these trousers. The contrast of the black satin bow against the charcoal grey knit really makes the details on this sweater standout! This sweater also comes in white, and would definitely work beautifully with these ruffled trim trousers…which are very Celine-esque btw.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and the beginning of this holiday season!
It’s that time of the year again! It is one my favorite days to shop, but it can also get kinds stressful. There is always that fear that you are missing out on a great sale…which is why I have put together a list of all the best sales happening on Black Friday and through the weekend. I find that this day only goes well when you are in front of your computer and not trying to beat the crowds at your nearest mall.

This list is a curation of my favorite online stores that happen to be having some major Black Friday deals. I will be updating this list of sales throughout the weekend, so be sure to check back! Ready, set, shop! Happy Black Friday shopping everyone!
Wearing: Goodnight Macaroon Plaid Pea Coat | Goodnight Macaroon Flared Sleeve Sweater | Citizens of Humanity Denim | Public Desire Boots
Coco Chanel once said that black and white’s beauty was “the perfect harmony,” that women “think of all colors except the absence of color,” and that black and white had it all. I can’t help but agree with her on every level. The most powerful combination is the striking contrast between black and white.
With this idea in mind, when I came across this plaid woolen pea coat and flared sleeve crewneck sweater, I knew I had a harmonious duo. Goodnight Macaroon is responsible for this amazing coat and sweater combo….and many other beautiful things that I’m coveting. Mixing black and white separates or making an understated statement with a b/w piece, like this plaid pea coat, is a simple way to create a standout look. With the cold gloomy weather hitting, what a better time to infuse your outfits with a poppy print, or in today’s posts case, winter white.
