Sweater weather is officially upon us (well, I suppose it has been for a little while now), and I am all about the cozy layers that inevitably come with. As much as I am a summertime kinda gal, outfit options are basically limitless in comparison this time of year. You know, those few precious months before winter storms hit, when it’s not quite cold enough to require a puffer jacket that resembles a sleeping bag and a hat that hides everything short of bloodshot eyes…
Mixing and matching autumny patterns and finding quirky ways to combine quintessential clothing pieces will keep you warm while still allowing for some fashionable flair. So here I am, keeping my hands in my pockets, racking up taxi bills, and reminding myself that this is only the beginning…so I’d better make the most of it!
Borderline sarcasm aside, I do really love this time of year. I am writing to you from an airplane en route to California, where I will have the pleasure of spending my favorite holiday at home with family, enjoying tons of food, wine, and 80 degree temps. In my mind, Thanksgiving really kicks off this magical season. And while enduring a real winter has admittedly been a tough transition for me, it is also quite nice to experience true seasons. How could I ever complain when I truly get the best of both worlds?!
I’ll soak up some sun and feast with my most favorite love ones, only to return to the winter wonderland that is Manhattan in early December. Twinkly lights, Christmas music, ice skating in the park, maybe a little snow, and plenty of spiked hot chocolate. It is a beautiful season filled with joy, laughter and giving.
SO, on that note…I am very excited to share that I’ve teamed up with Urban Outfitters and we’ll be giving away one of these awesome Fujifilm Instax cameras (I have one of my own and love it), a smartphone instant printer, and some mini rainbow bright film to seal the deal. Let me just say, I can pretty much guarantee that whoever wins this pretty little package has some serious photo fun in store.
ENTER TO WIN: All you have to do is Instagram a photo containing an Urban Outfitters product (feel free to channel some holiday vibes), and include #URGifted @UrbanOutfitters and @OnTheRacks….easy peasy.
Very excited to see what y’all come up with. Good luck and I cannot wait to send out some pressies!!
