H&M; dot cardigan, Ferragamo flats
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.
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.
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.
While 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!
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.
Leaving 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!
