Here we are. Knee deep in winter with no end in sight. The news this morning calls for a "wintery mix" later today in NYC. That's not good news. It can make even the most fashionable mom retreat into jeans and turtlenecks without hope of better options. But hang on friends, I've got an idea for cozy, cute winter dressing - I recently shopped Aventura and found a fun option.
Cozy Cute Winter Dress
You don't HAVE to wear pants in winter. A dress can be a great option, all you need are the right layers. I'm wearing the Sybil Dress from Aventura. It's soft and very easy to style.
Thanks to the higher neck, you don't need to add anything on top - maybe a scarf or a fun tassel necklace like this one. The hem is asymmetrical hemline giving the dress a bit more visual appeal. Plus the light grey color is a nice break from all the black I wear all winter long.
Keeping your New Year's resolutions
The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you ...read more

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
Wearing dresses in winter can be counterintuitive; no one wants cold legs. Leggings and tights are the answer to that. To layer up the Sybil dress, I added the Gilda legging. The fun chevron print works to keep me warm without wrecking my style.
These tights are footless - the style I prefer. I add in some nice warm thick wool socks underneath. Currently, I am loving the Lorpen brand for warmth and construction.
Boots that Work with Everything
On my feet? The Dansko Maria. You'll likely see these on my feet at least 1x a week during the winter. They are roomy enough to wear with a warm sock and durable enough to sludge through messy weather. I just clean them (very occasionally) with a damp cloth.
