Winter in NYC

Winter is my absolute favorite season of all! I love the way that the city looks during the Holidays; All of the lit up Christmas trees on Park Avenue, the giant star that hangs over 5th, and the Rockefeller Center tree is what makes this city so magical.

I don’t have school for the next two weeks and I can’t wait to explore the streets, eat new food, and just try new things!
I’ve already done quite a lot this month, so I’ve decided to put together a short (but sweet) list of some of the many reasons this city is the best during the holidays.

Here are a few of my favorite accessories for the cold.

Jacket: Canada Goose
This jacket is warm, comfortable and has a great fur hood. What more could you ask for?
Boots: Dr. Martens
I just got a pair of these and they are my new go-to boots. They give off a Chanel-y vibe. 
Socks:Uniqlo 
Wear these thick socks with the Dr. Martens and you’re good to go!
Mittens: Topshop
Mittens are just awesome. It doesn’t matter how old you are. They are great.
Hat: Brian Lichtenberg
Sunglasses: Oliver peoples
I love the round frame. 
Scarf: Topshop

This matté polish makes for a great top coat and is both elegant and edgy.
