Walking down Fifth Avenue in New York, it’s hard not to feel yourself happily slipping into the holiday spirit.
This makes holiday shopping infinitely less stressful, save for the fact that holy sh*t — it’s crowded.

I also have this vest in Adriatic Blue, which I’ll style on the blog later this week — the color is so beautiful!
