This plaid skirt and turtleneck sweater combination is one of my favorite outfits for winter. It is warm and cozy, and perfect to wear for meetings, the office, and church on Sunday. Love that!

I originally purchased this plaid skirt for fashion week in early fall. I fell in love with it the first time I wore it. It is extremely comfortable, and the tie at the waist is very on trend for the season. I also love the plaid, which is easy to wear with any color combination. Of course, since I love black, I paired it with black, and a pop of blue.

This plaid skirt and turtleneck sweater combination is warm and cozy in the cold weather. I can walk outside in forty degree weather, without a coat, and feel comfortable. With a coat, it becomes a warm ensemble for when the temperature dip below forty.

I just purchased this White + Warren turtleneck sweater for the winter months. It is a classic turtleneck sweater which is extremely comfortable, cozy, and versatile. It works well with skirts for  a dressier look, and also jeans for an easy, casual look. When paired with a blanket scarf, no jacket is needed! I know I will wear it for many future winters!

This is definitely going to be my go-to outfit this winter when I need to look dressed up, and also stay warm!

These photos make me smile. It was just starting to rain outside, and my nine-year-old daughter wanted to take my picture. Since she didn’t want to get wet, my seven-year-old son held a giant umbrella over her so she could take pictures, and stay dry. It was the cutest thing! How often do siblings work together? They usually fight over who gets to do what!

I hope you are staying warm this winter. Thank you for stopping by, and stay fabulous!

Plaid is a huge trend this fall, so when it came time to choose my outfits for New York Fashion Week, plaid seemed like a no-brainer! When I spotted this plaid skirt by ALC, I knew it was not only perfect for fashion week, it would be ideal for my fall wardrobe.

Since the plaid has black, putty, and grey in it, I decided to pick up the black for my top. It felt “New York-ish” to me. Here at home in the suburbs, I would prefer to add a pop of red to the plaid in the skirt for a top. Now, to find the perfect red top for this skirt. . .

The sleeveless top is perfect for early fall weather. When the weather starts to cool down, the addition of a leather jacket is all this ensemble will need to transition to cooler weather. This top will also look cute with flare jeans and boots for casual fall days.

I wore this outfit on day four of New York Fashion Week in September. This was a busy yet fun day. I started the day off with Fashion Shenzhen, then attended RewardStyle’s Rooftop Party, then I had FTL Moda, Georgine, Vivienne Hu, and Art Hearts Fashion. Stay tuned for my coverage of these shows!

This outfit was easy to move in; making it ideal for a busy day of running around mid-town and lower Manhattan. The skirt was comfortable and cozy. I can imagine it in cooler weather with boots and a cozy, ivory sweater. Now, we just need some cooler weather here in the Bay Area!
