I wore this last Friday for a quick afternoon/early evening trip to New York City to meet up with some out of towners. We walked to a few of the touristy places (Chrysler Building, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, etc.) and also went to a place I had recently found out about because they sell Dō cookie dough. It's an underground market near Columbus Circle called Turnstyle. I went in hoping to buy a few tubs of cookie dough but they charged TWELVE DOLLARS! WHAT?! (I didn't remember them being so expensive when I ordered online last year) I only bought one to satisfy my craving. We also had a quick slice of pizza while there to tide us over for ramen at Tabata Ramen later in the evening.

I wasn't in the mood to wear something super stylish so I went the other NYC route, basic black and jeans plus a designer bag for punch.

We had rain all last week. It was getting very depressing so I decided to wear a "bright" sweater. It's not really bright, but the orange and tan lifts my mood a bit. Hopefully we'll be able to ditch all this cold weather wear soon. Not that I don't love wearing my jeans and sweaters. I'll still wear them in Summer, they just aren't necessary, haha.

This getting dark early business is not going to make outfit pictures easy. Fortunately for me, last week 2 of my friends visited during the day so I had them take photos for me so I wouldn't have to drag out my tripod. On this day I went out to lunch with my friend Jenna. It was pretty warm so I didn't need both sweaters, but the look was a little boring with just one. But two is better than one, right?

Longtime readers will know that I love featuring companies that promote sustainability and support artists.  Today I'm sharing a piece from UncommonGoods. They carry such a wide selection of products that you're sure to find something you love. Most of the products they carry are created in the USA, and about one-third of the entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. Pieces range from dainty to rustic, so there's something for every style. Or, if you're like me, you'll want a bit of everything.

UncommonGoods supports a variety of non-profit organizations from City Harvest (which strives to end hunger in communities throughout New York City through food rescue, distribution, and education) to American Forests (which protects and restores forests worldwide.) With every purchase you make, UncommonGoods donates $1 to the non-profit of your choice. Since starting their Better to Give program 12 years ago, they’ve donated over $700,000 to charities around the world!

How amazing is this Hand Forged Slate and Bronze Necklace? It has a Greek god vibe to it, at least in my weird point of view. It was made in Vermont by mother-daughter design team Tulianna and Alejandra Garces. Finger-shaped stones are collected from the Vermont shoreline and refined into rustic beads. Then hammered-bronze accents are added to the stones for a hint of shimmer.
