Let's Get Marled

1.05.2013


TOGA fur jacket (last seen here), 
Brooklyn Industries Castor Marl sweater, 
Brynn satchel c/o Rebecca Minkoff (also seen here), 
DKNY wool pants, 
Persol aviator glasses
Mossimo braided belt, 
Callie boots c/o 80%20 (on sale here). 

I forgot how difficult having a blog in New York during winter actually is. This frigid weather is miserable!

But it's also kind of a fun challenge to head out in sub zero temperatures and try to figure out a way to look cute while also staying warm. My trick? Well, for one (sorry, PETA) fur. This new moto/fur jacket blend has become my go-to coverup this winter. It looks great with just about anything, and ensures that even if I'm wearing sweatpants and a tee underneath, I look moderately acceptable in public.

Another trick? Invest in great sweaters. This tunic-shaped, marled number from Brooklyn Industries is a great layering piece, and adds a fun dose of texture to any look.

Final trick: tights under pants. I'm telling you ladies, this one really works. No matter how you do it, stay warm out there!
