What to wear when the weather just isn’t cooperating…

December 20, 2009

There was a huge snow storm in NYC this weekend and in any other situation, I would have put my most comfy sweatpants and sweatshirt on, cozied up on the couch with hot chocolate and watched endless amounts of Dexter and Mad Men, but Saturday was not like every other day…one of my oldest and closest friends, Michelle, got engaged (congrats, Mich!) and it was time to celebrate!! Michelle chose the elegant Hudson Hotel (Library Bar) for this occasion. I had a dress, tights and booties ready to wear, but when I looked out the window, I realized that if I wanted to come home with all my bones in tact, this outfit wasn’t going to cut it…I ended up going with a silky top and cardigan, black skinnies and grey flat boots. I gracefully slid on ice the second I walked outside (happy I wasn’t in heels)…yikes!

What would you have worn for this special occasion in such treacherous weather?

What I wore… Would you have gone casual also?
