On days when it's not absolutely freezing in New York, I get to dress like I would have were it a California winter—and that's something that certainly makes me happy. However, I'd be lying if I said I went outside in the 40 degree weather like this without having cleverly layered up. Heat tech layers hidden underneath a big sweater, spandex under skirts, and layering over the knee socks over 2 or 3 layers of nude tights is the formula as to how I was able to keep warm in this ensemble yet still be able to flash a peek of skin!

Wine red is a color I've recently developed an affinity for, as you can see in my pairing of this beautiful neoprene jacket from ShopAkira with this luscious cable knit sweater from Tobi! I love the combination in this jacket of such a unique material in a bold color with a classic shape. This sweater, with it's armor like cables, has also won a permanent spot in my closet.

I'm still working on perfecting how to maintain that princess/goddess type of look in my outfits when in a New York winter rather than California's year round sunshine, but I'd say this look is a step in the right direction! ;) And a special shoutout to my amazing photographer and friend Michelle for these beautiful shots!
