If I look a little less than chipper in today's photos it's because I was SO cold, you guys!! This is the last outfit we shot during our trip to NYC (see full recap below), and it was such a blustery day that I only had it on long enough to snap a couple photos (< 10 minutes, I am such a Floridian). My shirt was riding up much higher than I realized, probably due to the fact that my entire body was numb from the cold, but I still love this supermodel-inspired idea for a day in NYC. It's simple and chic and details like the gold buttons, ornate belt and buckle boots make it so fun. Would you wear a navy and black look?

I try all kinds of crazy outfit combinations in my closet - many which never see the light of day, or get posted here. My first instinct with today's look is that is was unrealistic and I shouldn't post it - I mean what weather calls for a fuzzy hat, but then bare shoulders and peep toes, right?! Except, I think, that's the appeal of any off-shoulder sweater: the juxtaposition of cozy + bits of skin showing next to one another. Also, this is literally how we do holiday here in Florida! I would wear this to an outdoor holiday party at someone's house in a heartbeat. The fuzzy hat and sequin purse are so festive, but then it's also weather appropriate (plus you could easily switch to closed-toed boots and add a coat if it's really cold). I'm glad I gave pink jeans for the holidays a try, it may just be my new favorite thing!

Has a style item ever reminded you of something, but then you couldn't place what it was? That's me with this ribbon pin I spotted on Nordstrom.com; I knew it felt familiar, and that I really liked it. I connected the dots later that it's an uncanny match to the trim that Gucci uses on many of their current items. It's truly a designer look for a less, and I'm all about it! This $29 ribbon pin can be clipped or pinned on, and instantly spruces up old items I've had for years. Don't you love when an accessory packs so much punch and has the ability to make an old outfit look new?!
