bring on the blanket scarves

November 30, 2015

I was lucky enough to be chosen to take part in the College Fashionista x Aerie collab where I was gifted a blanket scarf and plaid shirt to style! I love love love blanket scarves for the winter so I was ecstatic when I saw this as one of my items. I also loved the color palette of the scarf.
I'm super happy with how these photos came out (thanks babe and skittz.) The top 3 photos were taken at Storm King where my previous blog post was taken. It's such a great spot to take photos and if it weren't so far I would definitely go there more often for shoots. Nature is the best backdrop.
My outfit in these photos are definitely better for warmer places or if you're just relaxing at home. I think it's the perfect holiday outfit, snuggling next to the fireplace with a warm cup of hot chocolate watching Christmas movies in your living room full of Christmas decorations. For colder places, like here in NYC, I would either throw on a pair of leggings with fleece lining (YES THOSE ARE A THING!) or a pair of jeans. Personally I would wear leggings only because they're 100x more comfortable. To finish it off I would put on a long wool-blend coat, some touch screen gloves and call it a day. A very comfy but winter-inspired outfit.
I love how cozy blanket scarves are since it gets pretty cold here in NYC and I get cold super easily. I just ordered another chunky scarf from Zara (thank you black friday deals) and you bet I'm already searching for more. Happy Cyber Monday shopping!

On Saturday, I finally got to visit Storm King Arts Center thanks to my boyfriend! I've been wanting to go for a while but the trip is a little on the longer side. It's somewhere upstate so it was about a two hour drive from my house. Admission for adults is $15 but if you show your student ID it's $8 so take advantage of that!! I was a little sad because we went later in the fall therefore a lot of the trees were already bare, but there were still a lot of trees full of red, orange and yellow leaves. The ground was filled with crispy leaves and it was just so.. fall. I love fall, it's my favorite season and NYC's weather has been on point! Usually it's freezing by now but it actually still feels like fall and I am absolutely loving it. Anyways, back to Storm King, there are a lot of art structures scattered throughout the park and the park is pretty huge. I've heard that in the warmer seasons, a lot of people picnic at the park because it's a huge chunk of land with such nice surroundings. This place makes a good day trip because after you can go to Woodbury Commons Outlet, which is where we went after and it's only about a 15-20 minute drive from the park. 
Can you tell that these are my favorite pair of pants? I think I've been wearing them at least twice a week because I'm in love with them, oops.

As you can see, we tried to take another fun shot but it didn't turn out as successful as the other time. It would've been great if my hair didn't block my whole face.
This is the same outfit as my previous blog post because these were all taken on the same day but I decided to split them into two separate ones since we had photo shoots in two different locations. This here is Washington Mews, a hidden gem just outside of Washington Square Park. It has a very town-house feel and it doesn't seem like something you would find in New York City. It's a nice block to visit and a great place to take photos! The block is full of cute houses of different colors and textures. Eve and I have decided to come here every season, we've already been in the summer and now the fall.
I'm sure you've all noticed the lace-up trend and I absolutely love their lace-up flats. I can't wear them for a long period of time or they start hurting my feet but they're so gorgeous (beauty is pain, beauty is pain.) Time to start playing the layering game because it's only getting colder and colder here in NYC. I love how my black kimono added a soft, light layer to my outfit while still adding a touch of warmth (not that much.)
