Happy New Year! I hope everyone brought in the new year just as they wanted. Stylish & toasting with champagne. Snuggled in a blanket on the couch sipping on peppermint hot coco or perhaps mountainside at your ski house. All great options if you ask me.

So it’s 2016 but I still have some looks from 2015 that I haven’t yet posted. Yes, I’m behind but catching up. Never a bad thing to have ensembles in reserve.

This look is something I wore while up at our ski house in Vermont. Its kind of an odd look. I wore leggings that have a higher waistline, a crop top and OTK boots. Yes, I know…..tacky, cheesy and a fashion NO NO!

Fellow NYC Blogger, Allie NYC  spoke about this very fashion atrocity a few weeks back and I actually commented. I had to be honest and throw myself under the bus. My only excuse for this look is, I was in Vermont where fashion & style never roles off anyone lips. I was going to an outdoor fair wherein my coat was staying on and zippered up… nothing would be exposed to the public. (I hope that’s a good excuse).

*Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boot Tip ~ if you purchase the boot from a regular retailer, they only come in one width. If you need a narrow fit or extended fit, purchase directly from Stuart Weiztman. I made the mistake of getting the medium from Bergdorf and you can see how baggy they are. I took them to the Leather Spa here in Manhattan to have them fitted properly.
 Coat: Here at JCrew (in Tall) | Top: Zara (old) | Leggings: Here at Wolford (now on sale) | Boots: Stuart Weitzman here at Bergdorf Goodman | Gloves: Club Monaco (old) | Bag: Here at Louis Vuitton | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
 If you clicked on the JCrew link I provided and noticed my coat looks different, that’s because I yanked the faux fur trim off the hood before I even walked to the counter. If you follow my blog, you know I hate faux fur. The jacket is still really cute without it.
