The year is already starting off crazy as I plan with my team for upcoming projects and travel. I haven’t looked away from my calendar all morning. For now, I am in the city, keeping warm, drinking hot cocoa, and taking meetings to kick off the new year. Days are bundled up while my nights are indoors, snuggled under a blanket. Less people are out crawling the streets, more people are hitting the gym, and the only thing buzzing seems to be the restaurants and bars that are steaming at the windows…heaters on full blast. Winters in the city mean surviving with very cute coats…cute beanies…and cute outerwear. It’s easy getting dressed when you have the perfect essentials. This beautiful pink coat is a favorite of mine this season. I’ve always wanted a bold piece that is so uniquely glamorous yet wearable. It’s so soft to the touch. I just threw it on over a cable knit, wide-leg trousers, and sock sneakers. When you have 20 minutes to get ready during the week…this is a go-to. The little melon green bag, a perfect little pop. When in doubt, think oversize coat and tiny bag. I’m taking the rest of my day to step away from my desk. I think the brisk, crisp air will feel really wake me up and energize me for the day.
