Winter White

what to wear in the winter in new york city

Happy Monday! How was the weekend? It was a low-key one for me. Brunch with girlfriends on both Saturday and Sunday, my favorite Saturday morning SoulCycle class, hot yoga on Sunday afternoon, and finally getting around to taking down my Christmas decorations.

As of late, I’ve been gravitating towards very clean and classic combinations of black and white when I’m getting dressed in the morning. I’m assuming it’s because of the recent new year, but who really knows. It could just be the dreary weather! January 1st brought out a somewhat-new craving in me — simplicity. I’ve been trying to embrace the idea of a “clean slate” in a lot of different aspects of my life. And I’ve been loving it, actually! There have been a plethora of lifestyle changes that I’ve been trying to keep up with over the past few weeks… cooking more, drinking more tea and way less coffee, handling stressful situations with a bit more ease and tranquility, putting in the time to organizing a lot of different parts of my life… it’s been beyond refreshing!

Here’s to a great week! xo

    Love this sleek and chic look. White is such a great color in the winter. I really wonder why people don’t wear it more.
