mustard chambray dots pearls

pearl jam necklace thanks to Accessory Concierge
H&M; dot cardigan, Ferragamo flats
J.Crew no. 2 skirt (old color, waist taken in), old chambray shirt (similar in petites, on sale)

I’m so excited that one of my favorite necklaces was brought back! See all 7 times I’ve worn it on the blog not counting numerous others that didn’t make it to a post. The faux pearl clusters are good quality in my opinion; they have a little weight to them without being overwhelmingly heavy (its 7oz to be exact). They are a small business based in Dallas with pretty cute items (like these oversized scarves) and have been super responsive with my questions. Please note this necklace is on backorder so has a 2-week ship time.

Also, nothing riveting here, but wanted to mention these 100% cotton, very affordable H&M; cardigans. A basic layering piece available in lots of solid colors and 4 cute prints: tiny dot, classic stripe, zebra, and leopard. A good leopard is hard to find, especially in sweater form! I picked up the dot as shown and ordered the stripe online. The shrunken fit I thought was very petite-friendly…XS is about 18.5″ long hitting at my upper hip, and the 22” sleeves were even just right for my short arms! Only small complaint is the sleeves are on the slightly wider side given how fitted the torso is. Also due to the 100% cotton, these might shrink if you machine wash + dry them.
travel outfit packing

 J.Crew sweater (old), H&M; scarf, Sole Society bag c/o (sold out, larger size)
Gap “real straight” jeans (old, same cut), Goyard pouch, Nine West flats (leopard sold out)

Wore this comfy outfit for a quick flight to NYC again. Each time I pull out this beloved honeycomb sweater circa 2012, I kick myself for having been anti buying more colors of it back then. I kept thinking they’d come out with a similar good quality + slim fit style in future years but they never really did. This Sole Society vegan Cassidy bag is sold out until March I believe, but their very similar, slightly bigger Lacie bag is still in stock with the added bonus of protective metal feet.
rainy day

Hunter Tour packable rainboots (review), Sheinside coat c/o, ASOS scarf (sold out)

This has been my recent rainy day uniform and it even made it to the Boston Globe : ) My ASOS scarf has long been sold out, but I saw Accessory Concierge has a very similar, bigger one that you can use my free shipping code on.
Yes this plaid pattern is everywhere but for good reason – the colors are so easy to pair, and a generous-sized scarf is a lifesaver in cold weather. I reviewed the coat in this post, but once again please take note of Sheinside’s reputably bad customer service before considering ordering.
imageWhile in NYC, my friend took me to the “rooftop” aka Gaonnuri, a restaurant at the very top of some office buildings by K-town. The views are stellar and the individual lunch set presentations were fun, but the dishes were very salty and not memorable. Would love to hear any of your favorite Korean spots in NYC for me to try next!
english muffins

 from Nick’s Instagram

Nick’s been obsessed with making bread products from scratch lately, and I can’t really complain! I love a good toasted English muffin, and have to say his first attempt (generally following this recipe) could give Thomas a run for his money.
snow dayLeaving you guys with this pic my dad snapped from inside our car – truly a breathtaking scene to drive through and almost made me forget the misery of winter!

    Thank you so much for sharing the free shipping code, Jean! I just finished purchasing the pearl necklace from Accessory Concierge; it's just the thing I've been looking for, and that free shipping was a really good incentive.

    Also, beautiful wintery pics!

    My favorite Korean restaurants in NYC are BCD Tofu House Muk Eun Ji if you're looking to go on 32nd street. There's also a few scattered about the city, but those two are the two I could think of off the top of my head! I actually live a 2 minute block away… too bad I couldn't randomly bump into you 🙂

    So many places in K-Town worth going to. Go to Seoul Garden for comfort Korean food like soondobu, and Shilla BBQ has good food too.

    And that photo of the snowy trees is quite gorgeous!

    Hi Jean, the H&M; leopard cardigan, Do you think the print is a little small ? I think it is cute but I don't know if I will love it. I have not seen it in store. I really like you leopard cardigan from AT in one of your styling video. I think the print of the AT one is perfect.

  • Jamie January 23, 2015 at 2:02 pm

    Love those leopard flats! I can't wait until it's not boot weather anymore!

    Thank you for posting the deals! 🙂 I'm loving that bag from sole society. I need more camel accessories like that bag and the H&M; scarf.

  • fivesouth January 24, 2015 at 2:41 pm

    For Korean food in NYC I really like Muk Eun Ji on West 32nd St. It's the first place I go to whenever I visit the city for day trips, and then I stop by the Korean fried chicken place down the street for a quick snack before I leave for home!

  • tellmeyblog.com January 28, 2015 at 12:58 am

    Wow, the last picture is truly breathtaking!
    I also love the pearl necklace you recommend! I hope they ship internationally!

    Hi Jean,

    Gorgeous photos as always! I found that plaid blanket scarf at Target for $13. It is so warm and fuzzy! There may still be a few left in store yet 🙂 I posted some pics of it on my instagram – teawithmd.

    http://kebunmanggis.web.id/cara-mengatasi-penyakit-jantung-koroner/ Too often, healing opportunities are lost because we’re stuck with old misconceptions about what visits are all about, and you’ll find that people will have all sorts of reasons for stopping by to see you when you’re ill. They may come out of love, concern, a desire
    to be helpful, guilt, a sense of obligation, and many other motives. In our estimation, the bottom line is always your healing,
