you may want this look! I am not the only one thinking these hats are a good idea. Get on the waiting list. A full coverage hat to be worn on the coldest city days without looking like a bank robber but maybe more like a Teletubbie. They are not for skiers (less you are vying for Jerry of the Day) but for the brave wearers who just want face protection as well as up their city style. The Moritz from Kule will have you fully covered! Made of cashmere so hoping that skin irritation won’t be an issue. But it may be a risk worth taking if they come back in to stock! Stay warm this winter. Kule
No need to introduce these two players. This collaboration is worth marking your calendars. Get ready for it online November 8th and in stores on the 9th. The always cool Alexander Wang has partnered up with Uniqlo for an intimates line that is aesthetically eye-catching, functional, and sure to be the workhorse of your winter layering. It couldn’t come at a better time. The weather is turning and we know what lies ahead. Uniqlo’s HEATTECH line has just become a bit hotter! Check it out for yourselves. I am eyeing the turtleneck bodysuit along with the leggings and tanks. Pretty much the whole flipping line! And YES, this special capsule is still affordable with prices ranging from $9.00 to $40.00. Knowing how to dress in the winter is critical to getting through those brutally cold days. These pieces are also beautiful enough to have them peeking out through the layers!

Style is whatever you make it. I have always been interested in following fashion in my spare time via insta, Flipboard, Pintrest, and magazines. I enjoy sitting in cafes to watch the city style pass me by. I love when someone is rocking their own style. It is not about what is on trend or what bag your sporting but more importantly being an individual and what inspires you.
Currently, I am having fun with functional winter pieces. It is still winter ladies (hopefully not for long)! I am totally digging track pants, black turtlenecks, boots, and my beanies (sounds a bit boring). My every day life is moving around the city and running around with my son. A lot of what I wear seems to be pieces that I have collected over the years (which makes me happy).
At the end of the day, I am a casual gal kicking it in streetwear. Loving that jeans are the norm and I can alternate them with track pants. Currently I have a couple jeans that seem to be in heavy rotation. One being a black mid rise, fitted jean from Madewell, and the other a Simon Miller, high rise, wide bottom leg. I call those gems my man repellers (brilliant name by the way and I love the site of the true Man Repeller). I typically pair any bottom with an easy knit or sweatshirt and occasionally layer on a blazer. Along with one of my favorite kicks or my Hope or Church’s boots depending on my day. Throw on a coat that suits the weather and top it off with a beanie. Easy Peasy and out the door.
Why the beanie love: I love the warmth, love to hide my bad hair, love the look, and love to sport it around the house:) Either my black Acne beanie or my son’s Vans beanie. As one has seen on most of my insta pics this season.
Meet Astis, the ultimate outdoor mittens! I was introduced to these stunning handcrafted mittens from a sweet, stylish friend of mine who loves to ski. She rocks these mittens like no other. She puts them to the test in the elements for which they are designed, the freezing temperatures of Vermont. Beautifully crafted suede mittens with a forearm that can be decorated with beadwork, cowhide pattern and fur trim. All the mittens and gloves are lined with Polartec Thermal Pro High loft material that is dry wicking which in return will keep your hands warm and dry. Don’t let the highly stylized mitten fool you. They are durable and are meant to be worn not just for apre! Astis combines modern technology and the time-honored tradition of handcrafted artistry. Each piece is unique and a work of art. I own a pair and my hands couldn’t be happier or warmer! Oh Yeah! I love a stylish and functional find! xo

Awesome Fact: Astis was founded out of necessity by Brad and Charlie, two friends with the love of outdoors. Brad was gifted a pair of beloved Cree mittens that unfortunately were also loved by his dog. Those furry friends of ours are always up to mischief! After much research, prototypes,and determination along came Astis. All mittens and gloves are hand stitched in the U.S.A!
