I’m realllllly hoping this is the last winter outfit I’ll share for a while. I am so ready for spring! But a few days ago we had a crazy snow storm (it pretty much snowed for 24 hours straight) and I was able to work from home, so I put on a cold weather outfit and Adam and I ventured outside to take photos!
Jumpers have come back into style this year and I am ALL. ABOUT. IT. This dark grey version from ASOS (shop it HERE) has been one of my favorite things to throw on this winter when I’m going to a party and don’t feel like wearing my usual jeans and a top. I paired it with black tights (opaque are your best bet since the jumper is pretty short), a chunky fair-isle sweater I bought several years ago from H&M, a maroon beanie from Aritzia, and a pair of “hiking” boots (I call them my urban hiking boots haha) from Target. But there are so many ways to style this! It would look adorable with an oversized cardigan thrown over it, or even with a turtleneck underneath.

I have been drooling over a bunch of beautiful yarn wall hangings I’ve seen on Pinterest for months, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own! I made this large wall hanging for our bedroom and I’m so happy with how it turned out! It was a fun craft to make because there aren’t really any rules. I didn’t follow any set instructions and I didn’t try to make it look perfect. I just got creative and made it up as I went along.
All you will need to make your own is an assortment of yarns (I went crazy in the knitting section of Michael’s and chose seven), a wooden dowel (I used a pretty long one, but to start out you could use a short dowel and make a mini wall hanging), twine, and scissors. That’s it! I started by tying twine in a knot on both sides of the dowel to create the “hanger.” Then I started at one end of the dowel and worked my way down, looping yarn around and pulling it tight. To add some texture I knotted one section and braided another. The rest I left pretty simple. In keeping with the “boho” aspect of this craft, I didn’t spend a ton of time measuring out the yarn. I wanted it to look somewhat uniform but also natural and imperfect. I love the way this looks on our wall and I’m so happy I went for it and made one! It was actually super relaxing to work on each night before bed while watching tv. If you end up trying this I would love to see photos! Happy crafting!
I don't know about you guys but the weather in NYC has been all over the place lately. One day it feels like spring is here and the next it's a nasty snowstorm. It definitely makes it really challenging to get dressed every morning. This past weekend the sun finally came out and it actually wasn't freezing outside, so I was able to wear one of my favorite warm but not too warm outerwear pieces... my "teddy" bomber jacket!! It's super cozy and also really on trend this season. I bought mine from Urban Outfitters a year or two ago, but I've linked some of my favorite "teddy" jacket styles at the bottom of this post!! : )
To style my jacket I wore: a basic black long sleeve tee from ASOS which I wore tucked in, RayBan Wayfarer sunglasses, stepped hem skinny jeans from ASOS, and my favorite checkerboard slip-on sneakers from Vans. My purse is from Madewell and I use it basically every day in the winter. Their leather bags are amazing quality!
