It's officially coat o'clock in the Big Apple. After a delightfully mild month or so, it is time to don our favorite outerwear as the temperatures continue to drop. Ever since moving to New York I've fallen in love with the hunt for the perfect winter coat. Something that's chic, warm and works for multiple occasions. I often cycle through coats quickly with the intense nature of northeastern winters so every year around this time I like to donate coats I won't be wearing to a better home. Growing up we always donated our clothes throughout the year. As a part of the Burlington Style Squad™, I'm excited to share more information about Burlington's annual 'Warm Hearts, Warm Coats' coat drive in partnership with Good Morning America and K.I.D.S/Fashion Delivers. This year I donated a few of my out of date coats and picked up this gorgeous camel coat! Stores are stocked with the latest outwear trends including, Canadian Goose inspired downs, Quilting, faux fur and soft shells. Check out a few of the styles here.You can be a part of the giving too! Now through January 18th, bring any gently worn coat to Burlington and get 10% off your next purchase. Be sure to share your Coat Donation photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #GiveACoat for a chance to be featured on Good Morning America.

pajamas ever thanks to Soma. I adore this pink and white polka dot set with black piping and buttons. The fabric is incredibly soft with great stretch. Even my boyfriend loves them. To stay extra warm on chilly mornings I also got the Soma Luxe Throw & Robe plus cute pink slippers. All these pieces would make incredible gifts as well - I know my mom is going to love a pair of these pajamas! Just another reason to stay in bed a bit longer this holiday season.

I can't believe we are already talking about the Holiday season - most days I still thing it's September. I am so excited to go home to visit my family for a week or so. Dressing up for festive parties and events is always so fun! I partnered with ModCloth to pick the perfect Home for the Holidays look and I absolutely love this dress. If it looks familiar you might be thinking of my bright yellow dress from ModCloth with the same cut (here). This season it got a very merry new print in a bright red with the cutest present motif print and crisp white belt. I paired the dress with a wool navy blue coat and red bow heels. I'm looking forward to wearing this dress this Christmas and many to come!

I love Holiday shopping. Finding the perfect gifts for my friends and family has always been a point of pride for me. I usually do the bulk of my Holiday shopping just after Thanksgiving while celebrating with my parents down in Florida at the Silver Sands Premium Outlets center in Destin. This year, however, I'll be spending Thanksgiving in Paris (more on that very soon) so I decided to get a head start at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in Central Valley, NY. It was so nice to get away from the city and shop like a suburbanite! I picked up a few great gifts for my friends and family and a few pieces just for me. I created a casual Holiday chic look with a gingham popper and bright red coat from J.Crew Factory and finished off the outfit with black skinny jeans scored at Joe's Jeans and Converse from Journey's. For my mom I picked up a plaid scarf from J.Crew Factory and coordinating red leather bag from Kate Spade New York. For my boyfriend I bought a warm winter hat and cute anchor tumblers from J.Crew Factory. Also from J.Crew Factory I purchased black faux leather gloves, adorable gold chevron coasters and a chambray tunic for a few of my besties. If you haven't yet visited a Simon Premium Outlets, I highly recommend it. You can score some incredible gifts for everyone on your list at a great price. Shop all my favorites from Simon Premium Outlet stores below.
