Knit & Leather Style Diary With Members Only

| "The first fall of snow is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment, then where is it to be found?" -J.B. Priestly |

As promised in my previous post, this outfit serves as the second half of my style diaries with Members Only. This look was incredibly delightful to shoot, as it took place on the same early morning of this winter's first snowfall in New York. Regardless of how exhausted many of us feel at this point in the year, the snow always has a special way of reviving the soul and the mind. It has the ability to lace even the gloomiest day with hints of childlike wonder.  

This beautiful faux leather asymmetrical jacket generously gifted to me by Members Only was the perfect piece to brave the morning's cold in a sensible and stylish manner. The jacket is in the shade Deep Burgundy and features cozy knit ribbed sleeves to compliment the faux leather.  

With the thrill of the special occasion, I had to take my new burgundy over-the-knee boots out for the first time. If you're familiar with my blog, you'll know how I just cannot seem to get over my adoration of a good pair of OTK boots. Because both the black and grey pairs I own fit so well, I tried to find the exact shoe in this color. I ended up buying mine from a boutique on Poshmark (an app you have to try if you want to save money while loving your wardrobe, as I talked about in my recent post on styling on a budget), but I found a few other similar pairs that will be linked at the end of this post. 

Last but certainly not least, I stayed super warm and snug in this stunning frilled knit sweater from ASOS. This has been my absolute favorite sweater this season. The material has a very high quality, so it never fails to keep me extremely cozy while out in the cold. Beyond that, the frill detail is so charming and perfectly chic. I paired it with some classic gold hoop earrings and a simple faux suede zip-front skirt from Forever 21

Loving the indescribable city in which I get to live is something I will never get tired of doing. The magic of the first snowfall only makes it that much easier. It's a gentle yet wondrous reminder from nature that we cannot ever forget to love the world we have been given. To quote Oscar Wilde, "it takes a great deal of courage to see the world in all its tainted glory, and still to love it."
