Here's to the moments that remind us to slow down, step back, and appreciate.
I spent a recent weekend visiting family away from the city, and it quickly became just the escape I needed. As much as I love the vibrancy of New York, the city has its way of burning you out before you have time to hit the breaks. This particular trip was spent looking after my baby cousins and lounging around their quiet suburban home that sits on a lake. Over the course of the entire weekend there was no sense of hurry or need to fulfill a checklist of tasks. The rush of daily life stood still for just long enough to remind me to appreciate these small moments.
A cozy weekend away calls for nothing but comfort, and I made sure to pack my bags as such. An oversized cardigan goes a long way in autumn, from outdoor layering to lounging around the house. I love this particular piece because its weight provides some extra comfort while maintaining style with the marled knit detail.
These slouchy suede boots from Skechers top off the cozy look, along with a low heel and simple details to match any outfit you might take on a trip. I wore this pair throughout a day of shopping around the town center, and my feet felt no discomfort by the evening. It's safe to say I'll be wearing these around the city quite often now!
