Christmas Sweater Season

12:33 PM


Sweater - Boohoo
Jeans - Topshop
Boots - Ecco
Coat - Moncler
Beanie - Primark
Gloves - Urban Outfitters or Forever 21... Don't remember which!

The days of warm Thanksgivings are long gone. Say hello to the latest polar vortex.

We got our first snow of the season over the weekend. Some friends are overjoyed. As for me, I couldn't be more disappointed. For having grown up on the east coast dealing with winter for my entire life, I hate snow. With a passion.

Thankfully, the dreaded weather held off for a couple days, so I could spend a day exploring SoHo while my best friend was visiting for the weekend.


While she was in town, we went to check out Glossier's now permanent showroom. If you're ever in town, I highly recommend it! It's small because it doubles as their office space, but it is so pristinely set up. Plus, because of the fact that Glossier is an online company, it's a huge bonus to be able to see these products and try them out before purchasing.

Though I didn't make any purchases this trip, I will be back soon! I really loved the Universal Skin Salve and could definitely use it in the cold weather. My skin gets so dry and cracked - not a good look - and you never know when you need a little bit of hydration.

After Glossier, we took a quick break at the ever adorable Cha Cha Matcha before exploring more shops and the Union Square Christmas Market. It has a lot of (or all?) the same vendors as the Bryant Park market I went to last year in double denim. I actually checked out the Union Square market last year as well. Even though it gets unbelievably crowded and cramped, it's still one of my favorite things to do... if it isn't too cold. Thankfully, my new Boohoo sweater kept me cozy and warm!

  9. Interestingly, I have lived in the tropics all my life. People around here would love to experience snow aka a white Christmas. That's me included. Haha. Cool photos btw!

    1. I was strongly opposed to buying a Christmas sweater for the longest time because I didn't want to spend money on something that was only applicable to one part of the year, but... definitely a total sucker for them now! Thank you so much :) That's exactly why I bought it!

  23. Girl, I feel you! Having lived in NY my whole life, I've come to despise it, too, lol! I mean, it's gorgeous to look at, but trying to dry and take trains and buses in it is so annoying! Anyway, thanks for suggesting the showroom, whenever I'm around, I'll be sure to check it out! I hope you're having a wonderful day so far, keep warm!

    XO,

    1. Living in snow and dealing with it your entire life really does that to a person! Haha, so glad you understand what I mean. Yes, it's nice for pictures, but for actual living? No thanks. You should absolutely check it out! It's so much fun and all the workers are so nice. I think they've made the showroom permanent now, so just make sure to check the hours and pop by when you're in SoHo!

    1. Haha once I went to college and had to start actually walking in it to get to class, I really started to hate it. It's fine if I get a snow day, but those don't seem to exist anymore. :( Hope you had a great holiday, Andrea!

  26. I'm 100% with you, I hate snow so much!
