When in doubt… wear red!

That’s been my motto as of late, and I have to say it’s been working. The weather in New York City has been surprisingly mild in the wake of Winter Storm Jonas. That means that the once pristine mounds of fluffy white snow have melted and congealed into soot-stained heaps of ice and debris. As you can imagine, things aren’t so pretty around these parts. Rather than let the dreary cityscape get me down, I’ve taken to adding much needed jolts of color into my wardrobe to help lift my spirits.

I always feel sassy and confident whenever I wear red, and this outfit is no exception. This buffalo plaid jacket from Uniqlo is easily my coziest purchase of the season. And I’m so glad that I bought it bit oversized so that I can comfortably layer heavy sweaters and blazers underneath – or even my much-loved marching band jacket which harkens back to my middle and high school baton-twirling days.

And what about you guys? What do you like to wear to help cheer yourself up during these dreary winter months?
