If I Could Redecorate…

Every once in a while I get the urge to redecorate. Since I can’t afford to right now, I’ve settled on compiling some photos and I’ll come back to them when I’m ready. It satisfies my urge so I can move onto something else, like work. Enjoy!

Winter Beanies & Head Warmers

Our warm spell in New York is going to end soon, and we’ll be hit with another snow storm in no time at all. Hopefully, this winter won’t be anything like the last (..winter ..and snow storm). BUT if it is, you should be prepared to keep your head warm… with a super cute beanie:

Style Crave: Jessica Simpson Winter Coats

Two things that make winter more bearable: red wine, and a good winter coat. Surprisingly, Jessica Simpson has a wide variety of adorable outerwear to keep you warm this upcoming season. My favorite is this tan coat with a built-in scarf:

Sophisticated, but also very warm! And no need for an additional scarf. Perfect over jeans or a dress. If you’re looking for something a little brighter, check out her Patch Pocket Coat in Lipstick:

And a couple more cute options from her collection:

Neutral Crossbody Handbags

I have had the same Michael by MK large tan satchel for 4 years now, and I’m itching for a new handbag. When it comes to everyday bags, I have a few requirements. It has to be a neutral color that goes with both blacks and browns, and it has to fit everything that I need to bring with me wherever (phone, wallet, camera, gum, chapstick). And it has to be hot! I mean, it’s practically part of every outfit I wear. I love beige, tan, or white bags with gold hardware. Right now, I’m finding myself leaning towards a crossbody-style handbag. At first, I wasn’t a huge fan of these. But in lugging around my massive satchel, I’m starting to realize the appeal: they seem to balance the weight of the bag across both sides of your body, which is a feature women around the country can appreciate (how often are you switching shoulders?). They’re also at a convenient hip height for grabbing something quickly, like your iPhone for a quick photo op. Here are a few that may be in the running for purchase:
