You should know this about me — I am HORRIBLE at waiting to give gifts. The element of surprise is just too sweet a temptation and I give in and hand them an unwrapped gift the moment it arrives on my doorstep. Usually. I bought Ben new boots like he wanted from J.Crew (except not those exact boots because I’m not filthy rich but don’t judge me because they are Frye boots, the oldest shoemaker in America! That’s got to count for something.), and I waited to give them to him… Until after lunch. They arrived at around 11 am, …

Jacket: Old Navy // Scarf: Asos // Jeans: Old Navy // Boots: Sam & Libby // Gloves: Target (similar) // Bag: Kate Spade // Sunglasses: Prada // Lipstick: NARS in Roman Holiday I’m not going to lie, sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation to walk the dog when it’s way below freezing outside. Not to mention the fact that Clarabelle has developed a real distain for walking on snow. Luckily, sometimes a handful of successive (relatively) warm days allows for a somewhat pleasant stroll down the banks of a partially frozen river. Here are my cold-weather dog walking essentials: waterproof boots, chic leather gloves, a cozy coat and a big ol’ blanket scarf. I scored this fuzzy wool-bend jacket for about $25 in an epic after-Christmas sale, and I love how it provides the perfect pastel canvas for this amazing windowpane scarf (which I’ve been wearing with pretty much everything). Technically, Clarabelle has some winter walking gear of her own—think shearling trimmed dog vests—but Max won’t let her out of the house with it on. Yet.

Right around this time last year, I was hopping on a flight to head to London for London Fashion Week, followed by spending a month solo in Paris. It’s wild how fast time flies… It honestly feels like it was just last week! I got *so* lucky with the weather when I was in London last fall… It was gorgeous and sunny almost the entire week I was there. I love London, but I was on Cloud 9 not having to battle any rain or chilly temps! This bell-sleeve dress was one of my faves last fall! The fun, flowy silhouette was great with over-the-knee boots, tights and booties, and even with a moto jacket layered on top. And good news — it’s still available...

When in Aspen, you can’t go wrong with faux fur. There were multiple times that I wished I had brought a few more pieces along. It’s the perfect way to keep warm while still looking a little bit luxe. This...

Now. I do not know in what book or meeting it was decided that there are specific elements that have to be done ONLY for plus size fashion. I do not know where or WHY these elements run rampant in plus size designs, and frankly, it drives me mad. I mean, I do not see these elements in straight sizes to the degree that I see them in plus and it irks me. I really want to say JUST STOP. But I cannot, because these elements work for quite a few plus size women, and if it rocks YOUR boat then hey, I am happy. But for me and a few others whom we have had colorful discussion with, I NEED MORE, I cannot, and I just want to scream at the designers sometimes… so here we go: Design Elements in Plus Size Clothes that KILL ME. Can I get a FULL Sleeve? STOP IT with the overkill of the three quarter sleeves. Seriously, do you know how hard it is to find a button up, jacket, tee, or dress whose sleeves are NOT three quarter? I DO love a three quarter sleeve, but I cannot have EVERY Jacket like this.
A little bit of heaven...

Essie Penny Talk, $9 I haven’t been buying a ton of nail polish lately, but a few different trusted sources recommended Essie Penny Talk. I saw swatches, really liked it, so I picked it up on sale. The color is really lovely, but Essie Penny Talk isn’t for me. Somewhere along the way I forgot ... Read more...

Sweater: J.Crew // Scarf: Zara // Hat: H&M (old, similar here) // Pants: American Apparel // Boots: Nine West (similar) // Purse: Rebecca Minkoff // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelets: Kate Spade and Old Navy (old) // Lipstick: NARS in Terre De Feu // Nails: Essie in Penny Talk As I type this, it’s 12 degrees outside and I’m curled up on my couch with a warm blanket and a cuddly dog. I’ve decided that my plan for staying warm this winter is layering, layering, layering, so I’m hoarding blanket scarves like a squirrel hoards acorns. So far, I have a pretty decent collection of cozy Zara selections, and I’ve got a few more on my Christmas list. But with all this layering, one begins to feel a bit like a marshmallow, so it’s nice to add a few sparkly pieces on top. I’m so in love with this Michael Kors watch that my mom gave me for my birthday, and I’ve also been wearing this new studded crossbody bag just about every day. It’s the perfect size for running errands, and it adds a touch of glam to even the comfiest of outfits. Finally, this rose gold nail polish […]

I am an Essie obsessive, I’ve got an entire drawer full of shades (proof) and I don’t seem to be slowing down. I was recently asked to do an Essie starter kit, containing the hues I think everyone should start with – and here’s the results… The Pastel Pick Everyone loves a bit of mint green in their life, especially when it comes to nails! My first pick has to be a cute minty hue, as it totally works for all seasons and all occasions. I’ve gone with Essie Mint Candy Apple, a favourite with Essie fans as it’s just so darn perfect. Wear it alone, dress it up with glitter or go for a white accent nail – it’s a failsafe option. I also love Essie Fashion Playground, which is a little bolder and infused with a subtle silver shimmer! The Bold Bottle My current go to shade has to be Essie Double Breasted Jacket; for a long time it was Watermelon, which is similar but not as bold, and a little more pink, but I’ve since graduated on to DBJ. This shade is just… ugh, there’s something so sophisticated about the played down red – it’s not too …

I’m pretty obsessed with painting my nails. I have a big stash at home. Far too many shades that could be deemed the same colour. But they aren’t. You can never have enough reds for example. I’ve always wanted to migrate over to Essie polishes, being a bit of a die-hard OPI fan, so when they finally became available in Boots, I made sure I snapped a couple up. One of which was Penny Talk. Penny Talk is a beaut. It is the perfect rose gold that has a foil effect that is simply gorgeous – particularly with a tan. It’s similar to Orly’s Rage, except Rage is packed with finely milled glitter. I think I’m more in favour of Penny Talk as it’s a little more demure – as demure as a rose gold, metallic polish can get! It’s one of those shades that you put on and then stare at your hands or tootsies constantly afterwards. I have it on both at the moment as I’m feeling matchy-matchy and I keep plumping for my River Island peep-toe platforms just so I can watch my toes gleam. You only need one coat of Penny Talk to be happy with …
