sweater weather

Hello lovelies,

Although not quite winter yet, it is starting to get chilly and we have even seen some snow in New York already!

fuzzy butterfly sweater - Alejandra Quesada

This is one of my favorite sweaters because it is so soft and has fun detailing, with the three hand-stitched butterflies. But since this sweater is a bit hole-y and air can get through, I wore a uniqlo heat tech long sleeve tee underneath. The uniqlo heat tech collection is really great because the layers are thin enough to layer under anything, but so super warm. I always layer the turtleneck and long sleeve under shirts and sweaters and the leggings under pants.

assorted sterling silver hoops - Chelsea Market

I have recently been gravitating towards silver earrings and just mixing and matching these silver hoops. The other ear just has the smallest size on the second lobe piercing and then a slightly bigger one next to it. I splurged on some sterling silver hoops because I wanted to be able to leave them in while showering and sleeping without having to worry about the metal tarnishing. Really happy with that purchase.

black cable knit tights - American Apparel

black culottes - uniqlo // white velcro trainers - Veja

I layered some cable knit tights with my culottes and I actually really like the look. It is subtle and barely noticeable from far away, but then when you look closer, you can see the texture and pattern change.

I also wanted to post today to talk about these trainers! I know I am not buying any clothes for a year, but I made a slight exception and recently bought these shoes because my other sneakers were pretty beat up. I have been wanting these trainers for so long, and I finally bought them around Thanksgiving time. Veja is a Brazilian ecological and fair trade footwear brand that I have been following for awhile because I really admire what they do. These trainers are made out of recycled cotton, wild rubber, and low impact leather. I am glad that I can support a company that is so set on improving on sustainability and consciousness along the production cycle. Plus, they are really comfortable and I like the look of them.

anorak - Maison Kitsuné

I have found that with two warm layers I do not really need a huge coat, so I went with my Kitsuné anorak/windbreaker. It blocks the wind and covers my butt, which I think are two crucial points to staying warm, hah.

Last but not least, I wanted to give a shout-out to one of my tote bags I have been using recently. I went to the Farm to People pop-up store at the Bryant Park holiday market and bought some goodies and this tote bag. Farm to people supports smaller-productions farms and companies and stands by humanely raised standards, no GMOs, and real food. Please check out their website -- it is a great way to find some cool snacks and products while supporting these amazing artisan farmers. You can also find products by state if you are looking to buy local. Some of these treats would also be good gifts especially if your family or friends are foodies. I definitely bought some presents from here.

Hope everyone is getting through finals week and or having a great holiday season!
