Unfortunately spring went back into hiding here in NYC. But while chilly days are still ahead, at least I can keep things chic with my favorite leopard coat, thigh-high boots (which, lets be honest, make every day better), and a fabulous choker dress.
By now everybody knows that chokers are hot. And this super flattering dress just happens to have one built INTO it - how cool is that? You're literally one-and-done with no need to worry about accessorizing. Fashion has never been so brilliant! Oh, and did I mention this exact dress is on sale? It also comes in loads of colors!
You've seen this coat a million times and you're going to continue to see it time and time again - sorry not sorry. It's a closet staple that takes every winter outfit up a notch. If you haven't already, I highly suggest investing in one of these bad boys - it'll change your style game!
True story: Kristin Cavallari once asked me if these boots were Stuart Weitzman. Obviously I died. First, Kristin Cavallari talked to me - eek! Second, these gorgeous boots cost a FRACTION of what a pair of SWs cost. But hey, I tricked an actual shoe designer, and you can too! Wear a faux suede pair with something fierce and prepare for the compliments to star rolling in!
All this look needed was a simple black purse, nothing too flashy. I wanted my handy-dandy carrier to blend in, and that's exactly what it did. But when it IS noticed, it has a fun little tassel, which adds subtle personality.
These artsy earrings are light as air, which is why I love wearing them for any occasion - even out at night or to a party! They're super modern and different but still manage to look great with pretty much everything in my closet.
I read somewhere recently that shades of plum are the hottest lipstick trend. The article said that plum hues look fantastic on ANY skin tone, and I could not agree more. But if you're having trouble finding your perfect shade, Nars in "Liv" is known for being universally flattering. I tried it out for myself (which is what you see me wearing here), and I fell in love.
This outfit is perfect for an after-dark affair, don't you think? Truth be told, I actually wore this same exact look on New Year's Eve and I felt like a goddess all night. Seriously, these choker dresses are FIRE! And if you pair one with over-the-knee boots, you're just owning the street style game.

As sad as it is, the groundhog was right and there truly will be a few more weeks of winter. We got so lucky last month with a surprise heatwave! And while we still have a few scattered days of warmth here and there, it may actually snow this upcoming weekend...I KNOW! The bright side? At least I can still get a few more wears out of this leopard coat.
