Trend to Try: Velvet

As soon as my hunt for a good deal on a flight home begins, so does the search for the perfect Christmas day outfit. This year, I have not yet had any luck with the former, but the latter was solved quite easily when I began seeing velvet pieces everywhere (LOFT has an amazing selection and with 40% of EVERYTHING right now, you can’t pass up trying this trend out!).

Let’s all agree that pink velvet shoes need to become a staple item in all of our closets…

Time to Get Bundled Up

Over the past couple of months, New York has offered up the most confusing weather I think I’ve ever experienced. I’ve gone from nights of layering up for bed praying my radiator turns on to cranking my AC the next day. This also entails switching up my wardrobe daily – kind of annoying. BUT…we’ve had about three days of chilly weather (the longest stretch so far!) so I think it might officially be time to bundle up! If you’re a longtime reader of the blog you know I’m extremely fond of the cold temps. Blame it on my Midwestern roots, but I can’t resist a good winter coat and think outfits are better when multiple layers are involved.

I can’t wait to share all of my favorite cold weather pieces over the next couple of weeks but let’s start with the pieces everyone will see the most – coats, hats, scarves, gloves..basically all of the best things about winter. Also, because I’m already in the holiday spirit of giving, all of the items below are ON SALE. Like..major sale (40% off at J. Crew for example. Yeah, I wasn’t lying!).

And okay – I know the holidays are all about spending time with friends and family, but why not also score a good deal on gifts for those friends and family members?!

Trend to Try: Jumpsuits

I think everyone has a few silly things that they get hung up on and can’t let go of. I’m a little embarrassed to share that for a long time, I was obsessed with wanting to be able to wear jumpsuits. Weird I know. I love how the look is effortless and a bit quirky, but due to the jumpsuit’s one-piece nature, my one size on the top and one size on the bottom body did not get along with it. Well, thanks to some new versions of the trend being introduced (and many months of hot yoga and barre classes ;)) like wide-legged and more relaxed fits…IT HAPPENED, I could wear a jumpsuit!

Naturally, my obsession has now moved from wanting to wear them to purchasing them to wear. The great thing is that because they are so popular right now you can find them nearly everywhere at every price point.

The Transport Tote
Driving Gloves

Come Sail Away!

Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly.

Sorry, Sinatra, this time we are going to SET SAIL!

Sailor-inspired clothing and accessories will never go out of style. Crew has kept us fully stocked in this department since 1983, and if were up to me, I’d implement a permanent sailor section.

Here are my favorite Sailor Staples currently at Crew:

 

Be a Silky Sailor!  The “Set Sail Tee” by Madewell.

Silk crepe de chine. Oh la la.

….And once you are set, time to Sail Away!

The “Sail Away Tee,” also by Madewell.

Go on, hop on YouTube and listen to Styx “Come Sail Away,” immediately followed by O.A.R. “Sail Away,” you know the one where BOB is lost? Still gotta find BOB!

“Cheerful stripes infused with a playful hint of downtown cool,” and…drumroll please…dolman sleeves!

One more thing…$20 holla sale!

Sailor Bracelets

Wool and the Gang Knit Bracelet “This Paris and New York-based crew of artisans takes knitting to a whole new stratosphere of chic.” (Sometimes the crew cuts little boys section has some knotty little knicknacks too.)

Angela Adams® and Sea Bags for J.Crew

Yes, the are super cool and super expensive. Recycled sails for stylish seafarers!

Speaking of Stylish Seafarers…

The St. James® Naval Collection

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of Never Go Out of Style….Saint James® has been spinning these naval tees in Normandy since 1850! Something tells me they didn’t always cost $115 dollars…

No…we aren’t sick of striped shirts yet!

Add a splash of sparkle:

Complete these looks with red heels. Or top them off with Sperry Topsiders!

Nothing beats the original. A Passion for the Sea since 1935.
