Wore this very practical and very puffy ensemble while frolicking around the West Village the other day. I didn’t think this NYC neighborhood could get any cuter, but with holiday decorations up it somehow has! It’s like another world over there from the grungy Lower East Side area I live in — so  much charm, I cannot get enough.

In other random news I discovered a new favorite alcoholic beverage…just in time for winter and easy enough that even I can manage to not screw it up. Take some very chocolatey hot cocoa, add a little (or a lot of) Cafe Patrón, and pile on the whipped cream and sprinkles. You will not regret it. Just figured I’d share!

    That recipe sounds oddly familiar. I’m pretty sure a fierce filipina showed me that awhile ago.

    Love the peplum with the animal print pants!

    Love the print on those pants, and I agree with you – cafe Patron is the BEST!

    Another must-try (don’t judge, I swear it’s amazing)… Whipped cream vodka. It goes so well with dessert and is surprisingly not as terrible as it sounds. Perfect for a holiday party.

    Dig the jacket layered over the blazer – looks like one amazing coat!
    Also, gonna need one of those bevs right about now.

    Love the printed pants girl! You are rocking them in style.

    I also have those Zara booties, and I love the way they add a little extra something to every look.

    Happy holidays!

    Great idea for a festive holiday drink! I love Cafe Patron but never thought to mix it with hot chocolate.

    I like how you layered the theory blazer under the over coat! Good idea for those coats with shorter sleeves
