The NYC Chill

KatWalkSF NYCHey Guys! Just so you know, it is really VERY cold in New York right now!

and this California girl did not do well with the chilly weather!

Everyday of my trip a complete stranger told me that I looked cold + my cab driver even told me that he didn’t want to take me to the Chelsea piers and insisted that I go to the ‘Russian Saunas’ or back to California!


KatWalkSF NYCIt took me nearly the entire trip to learn that 1 coat was OK, but 2 coats were better (my other coat was on a nearby bench) and that tights under jeans were OK and that tights + leggings under jeans are even better!

KatWalkSF NYCI snagged these shoes on my first night while wondering aimlessly (and VERY coldly) down 5th Avenue + ended up wearing them for the rest of the trip! They are the perfect bootie! The hidden wedge gives them just the right amount of height + the cheetah print is so unique!

However…I learned the hard way that slipping on ice is easy + to pray that the sidewalks had been salted!

Despite the cold weather (and some of my slip ups) I had an amazing time in New York and fulfilled my childhood dream of standing outside in the Today Show crowd and even saw my creepy man crush Matt Lauer!

I can’t wait until my next trip to NYC and to apply all of my new layering tricks into my styling!

Jacket: Ecote via Urban Outfitters, Molly Faux Fur Coat
