Snow Blanket

Don't you just love having an arctic winter for New York Fashion Week – I definitely didn't. It had gotten so cold that you can still manage to see your breath indoors and your feet would get numb after 2 minutes of standing over the icy snow. Luckily, bulky sweaters and blankets are spilling out of my wardrobe and this wintry day required lots of layers. Beneath my favorite grey coat was a blanket scarf, heavy knit turtleneck, and an additional long-sleeve and tank top as well. And yes, I was freezing while taking some of these photos, absolutely frozen by the end of it. Read more to get additional shots of this chilly shoot!

My favorite thing about blanket scarves is the way they embrace you entirely. It's easy to wear this draped over your head, around the neck, and to cuddle yourself under at home. This winter has definitely made me upgrade my wardrobe to better quality staples that are versatile. It's important for me to be able to mix things up a little bit so although my outfits are mostly composed of simple pieces, I love being able to mix and match different colors and textures. As Lent has begun, I've given up on purchasing any new clothes until easter, so let's see exactly how many looks I can put together without any new buys. In addition to this, I've also given up coffee... yikes. Wish me luck!

    1. Thanks so much! I love it too but definitely have had to watch my spending in that store! It's bad, haha.

  2. You're giving up what for Lent?! Shopping and Coffee? May the lord be with you. Ha I'm currently on a no-buy because I'm saving up to buy a new camera, so I can upgrade my blog photos, but for Lent I want to floss every night. I always end up being too tired or I forget. I hoping that within the next few weeks I'll form a habit and continue flossing daily.

    1. Yeah, so far I haven't caved so I'm definitely going to reward myself with a nice shopping trip and beautiful latte by the end of it! Haha. And that's great! What camera? I recently upgraded to a Canon 6D, so I'm trying to sell my Canon T3i now.
