So…Winter has definitely arrived (with a bang) here in NYC. It is now FREEZING! I quickly took these photos on a lunch-break this week with Monica & Lorna and I genuinely couldn’t feel my face for a good 15 minutes afterwards. They really weren’t lying when they said it gets VERY cold here in the Winter. So the only way to beat it is to invest in good quality Winter Wardrobe Essentials and get very good at layering. I must admit, I really do love Winter Fashion. I know it can get very cold, but it’s such a cozy time of the year too. I’ve been living in my new wool coat from Yumi Direct and rarely take off my black fedora, blue scarf & leather gloves. I’ve come to learn that if you keep your head & fingers covered up…it really makes a big difference.

Chunky Knits

Ankle Boots

As annoying as the cold weather is, it’s reminding me just how close Christmas is. I’m going home to Ireland for 10 days and I’m so so excited for the little break. In the meantime, I have lots of new blog content coming up: Gift Guides, Christmas Outfit Ideas, NYC Related posts and of course, lots more outfit posts too. Also, I asked you guys on my snapchat (retroflame1) which type of posts you’d like to see more of and I got so many amazing ideas & suggestions. So… Thank You! I always appreciate your feedback :)

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend,

Stylishly Yours,

    Love the feather embellishment on the hat, very chic! The scarf adds a pretty shade of blue to the black outfit too, nice!
