Cold Weather

A Touch of Tartan

I am completely obsessed with this outfit I put together. If you can’t tell… I’ve clearly been watching the first season of Gossip Girl. Blair’s style definitely is rubbing off on me when I reach for things in my closet currently, ha.

It’s a mix of new items from this year with some pieces I’ve had for years.

I wore this last week for a business meeting and then walked to Bryant Park to shoot. Bryant Park is such a fun place to visit during the holidays. I’m not sure that there are really “non-peak” hours in December, but it’s super crowded on the weekends.

This scarf was a gift at the J. Crew ice skating event a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE the colors of it. My mom and sister borrowed it while they visited and I wanted to make sure it made it into a blog post before the end of the year.

Preppy Winter Outfit

Instead of wearing a longer coat, I opted for a blazer instead. When layered correctly (and not on a frigid day, of course), it can be just as effective as a coat. I haven’t really worn any of my blazers this year and I’m not sure why. Making a mental note to pull them out more often because I just love how they look!!

Preppy Outfit Winter

I got this skirt from Brooks Brothers for my birthday a few years back. This is a similar green skirt (but no pleats, boo) on sale. Here’s a green pleated skirt that might be slightly more trendy!

Preppy Plaid

I didn’t wear the beanie or gloves at the meeting (obviously), but I think the look is best with the final accessories, right?!

This is SO Blair! I love the colors in the scarf. If you’re ever looking for something exact that she wore on the show, I have a Poshmark store dedicated to Gossip Girl and am always hunting for Blair’s stuff!


Girl! I have been watching GG to! My sister and I re-started it last month and it’s amazing!!!! It keeps getting better and better! I just want all the couples to be in lovey relationships, especially Blair and Chuck ha! I do love what their wearing and how relevant some of their style is currently in 2018! They had on OTK boots and I was like WHAT?! I’m on season 2 episode 16 and it just gets more juicy and better!!!

As much as I love Christmas, red and green can sometimes look very garish together, but this scarf balances them so well! I popped by Bryant Park the day after Thanksgiving before heading on a bus home, and although I didn’t have enough time to go skating, I did have enough time to browse the Christmas market! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
