The holiday moods are all around now that it is finally December. Only a couple more weeks until one of my favorite holidays of the year, Christmas. It’s all about how everyone feels incredibly jolly and spirited. Even though there are millions of people in New York, it can feel pretty lonely sometimes in the big city, but the holiday season gives a feeling of togetherness and generosity. All I want to do is give, give, and give.
Now that it’s colder, it is ALL about layering – but it’s tricky since you still want to keep your outfit together, not overly layered, and warm at the same time. There’s a balance that you need to maintain. So what I did here was wear another one of my heat-tech turtlenecks from Uniqlo (I definitely stocked up on these. They are the foundation of layering in the wintertime). I wore it right under this incredible mohair vest from Datura. It isn’t as thick as you would imagine, but it kept me very warm. I finished it off with my favorite knit scarf from H&M. My grandma used to always tell me to cover my neck when it’s cold and windy out because it prevents you from getting sick. Believe her, it’s true. The best part? You can wrap it around multiple times and cuddle in the scarf when it gets colder at night.
I hope that when you guys are done with finals (if you have any) you go home visit your family and really spend time with them. It’s very important to do that! Also, if you can, help those who are less fortunate – anything can make a huge difference. We should always try to find ways to help others, not just during the holidays, but every day.
Love you guys J
