It's been a long time since we've shared an outfit post, but I figured these photos my friend Mitch shot of me were the perfect occasion to share some tips on transition wear and a little Christmas gift guide. New York weather can vary pretty drastically day to day from September to December, so I like to dress in layers, usually pairing my favorite overknee boots with pants on colder days and skirts on warmer ones. Stripes paired with a camel blazer or coat is one of my all time favorite polished looks. If you're still looking for some Christmas gifts shop my favorite picks for under $200 below (including overknee suede boots for 129! ). Or to just treat yourself, I certainly won't judge! What are you buying for your friends and family members?

Sometimes New York surprises us with incredibly mild weather, but this December has been above and beyond mild. I've been told it's been warmer than San Diego this year, but I'm not going to question it and embrace this second round of autumn. It's my all time favorite season after all and no city does fall better than New York. Although I'm in the midst of finals week right now, I had to take some breaks to stroll around and enjoy the beautiful weather last weekend to capture the last remnants of autumn in the prettiest corners of the city, not to mention to make use of my last opportunity to wear sleeveless coats and eat breakfast outside this year.

Last week, the lovely Jo Malone London team invited me over to their new boutique at The Shops at Columbus Circle to see the holiday decorations and try out their newest products, like their Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne. I knew I loved their scented candles, but I had no idea there was so much more to the brand.
After I had a chance to smell each of the fragrances at the Discovery Table, a Jo Malone London stylist walked me through their fragrance combining philosophy, which encourages you to layer scents together to create your own unique scent. My personal favorites were the Wild Bluebell and the Nectarine Blossom & Honey. You can also call ahead and schedule a hand and arm massage to try out combinations of hand & body wash, hand & body lotion and cologne to see what different scents would be like together, or for a little after work pick me up and relaxation.
If you're still shopping for Christmas gifts, they have some gorgeous options (not to mention the pretty packaging!). I've linked my favorites for you below.
Thank you to Jo Malone for sponsoring this post.
Hi friends! Seeing as summer is now in full swing, I figured it would be a great idea to give away a bikini from To Die For Swimwear! Sounds pretty useful this time of year, right?
