Down on Irving

First week of spring semester and we are greeted by a snowstorm. Luckily, I got to get a few outfit shots in before the storm hit!

Down on Irving 1With such cold winters in New York, I always opt for layers. I practically never leave the apartment with fewer than three layers on now: sweater + vest + coat. This three layer combo is essentially my survival guide for the unbearably cold weather the next four months.

Burgundy 1Happy Friday, loves! Weekend is almost here! Although this week was my official last week of winter break, I feel like I haven’t gotten any rest at all D: I know I’m definitely not ready for spring semester to start…

But anyway, in the meantime, here’s a look from when I was running errands earlier in the week. I’ve been obsessing over burgundy as of late, especially combined with textured grays and blacks. I was hesitant when I first saw these over-the-knee boots…the color was gorgeous but I had doubts on how to style them and if I would get enough wear out of them. But I took a chance and it paid off! I’m completely in LOVE with them!

Burgundy 4These burgundy boots hit about mid-thigh for me. Pretty high for over-the-knee boots, but I think that the length pairs perfectly with skirts and dresses. The boots draw attention immediately and its great to style them with a textured lace skirt or patterned dress.

Happy Wednesday, loves! Can’t believe it’s mid-week already! Only half a week of winter break left for me :( But hey, that’s okay–I’ve definitely spent my time wisely. For the long weekend, I finally got the chance to visit the historic town of Boston!

Day 1: Cambridge Area

DSC_0010I ended up staying at the Hyatt in Cambridge, right next to the Charles River–absolutely breathtaking views of the city skyline.

DSC_0016Walking around town, I couldn’t help but visit some of the university campuses. I never did college visits as a senior in high school, so I guess I’m about 3 years too late, haha. It was interesting to visit MIT and Harvard…but I still don’t think I would trade my experience at NYU for anything in the world.

DSC_0024Wound up at Legal Seafood for dinner the first night! Apparently, it’s a must-have if any of you are ever in the Boston area. I ended up with the seafood casserole (mm baked cheesy goodness) and my boyfriend opted for their shrimp pasta dish. Have never felt so stuffed and content after a meal…

Day 2: Downtown Boston

It ended up being a bit gloomy/rainy on our second day in Boston, but thank GOD it was warmer! I actually think I prefer the gloomy weather if it means I don’t turn into a human ice popsicle when I step outside >.<DSC_0037We crossed the Charles River and ended up exploring a bit of BU. It was interesting walking around BU because I think it’s set up in a very similar way to NYU–right in the heart of the city, with buildings integrated right into Boston. There isn’t a true campus either, but that’s never really bothered me at NYU–the city becomes your campus instead.

Beantown 1Exploring BU in the gloomy weather means bundling up and wearing comfy shoes! I opted for my favorite wool coat, bundled up in my warmest cashmere scarf and grabbed my go-to black distressed skinny jeans. As for shoes, I went with a pair of tasseled tartan print loafers–comfy and fun!
