After ten blissful days in California (two of which were unplanned thanks to winter storm Jonas), I am back in New York and somewhat reeling from the shock to my system of the cold and slush. (“Back to life, back to reality” is playing in my head as I type this post…!)

And with winter reality, comes the art of layering. The other week it was ten degrees in the morning and so very cold. As I was getting ready for work in the morning I just kept asking myself “how many layers can I pile on?” I started with a striped tee (it’s a great layering piece and only $7 on sale right now), added a button down, then put a cropped sweater over both of those. Next came a coat and quite possibly the softest scarf I’ve ever owned. And the best part of over the knee boots? They double as a second layer on your legs – HA!

In related wardrobe news, I finally started reading this while waiting at LAX and I immediately returned home to start discarding things. It’s especially easy to hide things in New York and while I have gotten rid of so much due to lack of space, I certainly have plenty around that I don’t need. Has anyone else read this book!? Do tell me about your experience!

Hope you’re having a good week! xx
