The Right... Snow Day

I'm sure you heard about the massive snow storm that hit the East Coast two weekends ago (we're talking 25-30" in New York City alone!).  I wanted to share some of my snow day snaps with you, starting with halfway through the storm.  While I've had a lot of low key weekends lately (I've been feeling the need for some restorative "me" time), expecting to be snowed in does crazy things to people mentally.  Had it been any other weekend I probably would have had a low key Saturday mostly indoors but just knowing I "couldn't" go outside made me insanely stir crazy so I ventured over to Carl Schurz park by my apartment.


The snow continued until at least 11 PM so when we woke up the next morning it was literally a winter wonderland, with the sun shining and blue skies.  I met up with some girlfriends and we ventured around Central Park (including stopping at the swing set and sledding down a super steep staircase by the Boathouse).





I didn't break the sled - it just so happened that everyone was sharing these janky broken sleds so we could all take part in the fun!

I also wanted to point out that people came out of the woodworks to enjoy the snow!  The park was insanely busy, including this deathtrap of children sledding down Cedar Hill (I kid...). 
I hope you all are enjoying the winter weather you've been getting!

The Right... Blush Carryall [+ a Giveaway!]




Friends, meet my newest handbag obsession: Dagne Dover.  You might have seen my instagram a few weeks ago but I found them on Instagram over Thanksgiving and instantly fell in love.  Serendipitously I was then invited to an event with Well Kept at the Dagne Dover pop up shop where I was able to see the bags first hand and it was love at first crossbody.  They are such good quality, beautifully built and the colors are soo good.  Oh and they have all the perfect pockets and compartments to keep everything beyond organized (the mini I'm wearing has a padded pocket for a tablet!).
ASOS Leopard Print Coat, Forever21 Cable Knit Sweater, Banana Republic Track Pants, Me Too Ballet Flats, Urban Outfitters Beanie, Dagne Dover Mini Tote (c/o)

The Right... Cozy Sweater




Old Navy Hi Lo Turtleneck (c/o), Banana Republic Quilted Down Vest (similar styles/colors linked below), Old Navy Rockstar Skinny Jeans (c/o), Calvin Klein Booties, GiGi New York Clutch (c/o)
I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this sweater (and the fact that it's so affordable makes me question when I'll pull the trigger and purchase in the other colors) and it was a serious staple when I was home for the holidays.  Before I left to go home, New York City had been experiencing very temperate weather so I didn't quite know what to expect when my mom told me Reno was expecting highs of 30.  50/60 degrees to 30s?  Woof.  I literally packed every sweater I own and all the long sleeve shirts possible so I could layer correctly.  
I also have to admit that I think this vest was my best purchase for the cold weather season - it's so light but so warm making it the perfect layer. It was a key piece while I dealt with the cold at home!
What's been your cold weather go-to this season?

Also a little outtake for you today as I almost fell on my ass in the snow - I'm shocked I didn't break my neck falling on all the ice and snow we had.  I learned that NONE of the shoes I had with me had any traction...

The Right... Fluffy Sweater



Random SF Boutique Fluffy Sweater (similar styles linked below), H&M Blush Blouse, Old Navy Rockstar Skinny Jeans (c/o), Banana Republic Leopard Print Flats, GiGi New York Clutch (c/o)

It's always dangerous when I shop after a nice long brunch and I have to admit, I sometimes walk away with pieces I'm really not sure about later.  Two Christmas' ago, I spent a weekend in San Francisco with my best friends before heading home for the holidays and that very thing happened.  I went to my first (bottomless) gospel brunch and then we walked all over San Francisco popping in and out of stores.  In this random boutique I spotted this pink fluffy sweater/coat and knew I had to have it (or well, post-brunch me definitely thought I had to have it).  I wore it for New Year's Eve that year and then it basically sat in my closet the rest of the time because again, I just wasn't sure about it.  Earlier this year when I was going through clothes, I told myself that I had to wear this guy at least twice or it was being donated.  Sure enough, I've worn it at least twice and I anticipate a few more wears out of it before it gets too warm!  Check out a few similar options below!

The Right... Duster Coat

Necessary Clothing Duster Jacket (c/o), LOFT Black Blouse, Club Monaco Faux Leather Tuxedo Stripe Leggings, Charles by Charles David Nude Pumps (c/o), Gigi New York Uber Clutch (c/o), Brahmin Leather Bracelet (c/o)

I'm so glad I was able to snap these pics while it was still unseasonably warm (yesterday evening it was "real feel" 10 degrees!).  I saw the duster coats all over for fall and finally broke down and added one to my wardrobe right before Thanksgiving.  I love the drape on the front but I have to admit I had a hard time styling it because it was so long and it threw me off a little!  I decided to keep everything else simple with clean lines.  Have you tried out the duster coat trend yet?  What are your thoughts on them?
