In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s a news flash for you: It’s been ridiculously outrageously cold here in New York City. Being a transplant from the subtropical embraces of Hong Kong, naturally I am not entirely too pleased, but the silver lining of heavy snow is that it does make for some rather beautiful photos. I’ve been dabbling more heavily in Instagram these days, which is where you can find me (and plenty of snowy shots, with or without Nala in them) most of the time. Side note, these boots, while amazingly comfortable, had no traction on them whatsoever. What you don’t see in these pictures (captured by some of my favorite Instagrammers) is the fact that I practically slipped and slid all over the place before one useable shot was taken. I’m not really made for cold weather.

Mean muggin’ it with my one and only Nala the nugget. Her facial expression totally reads “You’re in the wrong neighborhood, m*f*!” which completely cracks me up every time I see this picture. Still, this photo is probably my favorite picture of us together that I’ve had so far – mostly because of the fact that we’re almost unintentionally “twinning” in it. Black, white, brown, and a serious smize (or at least an attempted one, on my part). Also, I can’t for the life of me remember where I got this hat. But it was a random impulsive buy from the Brooklyn Night Bazaar and I wear it almost every day.

There is something about the New York Public Library that is just so enchanting – it brings me right back to my favorite childhood memories of me running (well, walking) amok in the libraries in Hong Kong, eager to find new stories to get lost in for the weekend. Curling up in an oversized scarf that doubles as a shawl is my grown-up version of getting cozy on a beanbag chair in the kids’ section back in the day – and Free Endearment just made it look so much chicer paired against winter white.

’tis the season, and New York City has truly embraced what is going to be another stunning Christmas around these parts. Seeing the gorgeous lights strung up on trees and the windows unveiled on Fifth Avenue never gets old: It’s like I’m living in the movies, in people’s dreams come true. We had an unusually warm weekend recently, so it was prime opportunity to style this Helmut Lang skirt I copped recently from Saks. Love the print, love the silhouette. Going with an oversized knit and chunky ankle boots was a natural choice to let the print truly stand out. And in a little narcissistic moment, can we discuss my ombré hair situation? So glad my roots are coming in relatively naturally.

Sweater plus sweatpants – the classic “it’s way too cold to do anything” collegiate combo, (PS look at that alliteration!) elevated for New York City. A simple grey sweater gets the edgy treatment with unexpected zipper placement, while my leather joggers really have become a mainstay in my wardrobe this season. It’s getting to the point where I wear them a little too much, to be honest. Nala, who is cozied up in a cute knit sweater in white, is all set to be my sartorial (and life) sidekick from here on out. Winter is coming, and we sure are bracing ourselves…
