Popping in to share a cozy winter white look that I’m loving right now! When Pamela Munson sent me this dreamy flap bag from her new resort collection I wasn’t entirely positive how I would style it. The answer was (and always is?) winter white. I know I’ll wear it a ton in the Spring or on vacation but for now I really love how it juxtaposes with soft cashmere. Speaking of cashmere, this silk cashmere sweater is the softest thing I own. It’s heavenly and I can’t stop wearing it. Eileen Fisher can truly do no wrong when it comes to combining cozy and chic.
Today though I want to talk about winter TV! I am in full on hibernate mode. Scroll down for a few favorite recs and tell me what you’re watching in the comments! I’m about to finish The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and could use some more suggestions for when I finish that. I typically like feel good shows (like Younger, Mrs. Maisel, and This Is Us though I quit that when Jack died), or anything thriller-y about crime, spies, politics, or lawyers… (think The Good Wife, The West Wing, Scandal, House of Cards, etc.) Oh and then I guess there’s the weirder fantasy stuff like Game of Thrones and Stranger Things. My tastes are kind of all over the board but I could really use some recommendations.

Before we talk TV… I got a few requests for a headband/turban styling tutorial on Instagram and I would just say it’s a lot of trial and error and depends on the shape of your head. Honestly, I really love this one as it’s stretchy – I have a large head! I think the key two success is two things. First of all, make sure you angle the headband downward toward your ears as opposed to trying to wear it totally horizontal. The other tip I have is that when you put it on, pull your hair back into a low loose ponytail first to make sure there aren’t any bumps! Then put your headband on (angling down) and take the ponytail out.
I hope that’s helpful. I’m certainly not a styling expert but played around quite a bit to get it perfect and now it’s really easy.
5 TV Shows I’m Loving Right Now
one // The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
(Amazon) Okay if you’re not watching, fix that immediately. This show is so cute, it’s so funny, it’s so happy, the costumes are amazing… it’s the perfect thing to watch if you are tired/stressed/having a bad day. Midge Maisel is left by her husband and totally blindsided. This is the story of her finding her independence, discovering an unknown talent, and coming into her own. I could not love it more… such a feel good show.
two // The Bodyguard.
(Netflix) Holy anxiety. It’s only 6 episodes long but packs a PUNCH. I don’t even know how to describe how stressed out I was watching the last episode. It’s a must watch if you’re into a thriller!
three // The Good Place
(NBC or Hulu) This is such a fun, fresh show, and I like that it’s under half an hour. It’s perfect after a long day when you just need a funny little distraction. I dragged my feet a little through the first season and then there was a big twist. Ever since that twist I’ve been totally hooked.
four // Younger
(Paramount or Hulu) This is one of my most favorite shows. I’m including it not because I’m watching it right now but because I just love it so much and if you don’t already watch it I want you to start watching immediately. It won’t be back until June, but when it does, my DVR is already set. Liza Miller is a publishing assistant who lied about her age (she was 40 and claimed to be 26) to get a job. Slowly her secret gets out, a hot and heavy love triangle emerges.
five // Game of Thrones
(HBO) Gahhhhhh finally! It’s back in April so I may try to re-watch the last few seasons in anticipation (if I can’t find something better to watch!) I can’t believe this is the last season but am so excited for it to finally be here. This is my favorite TV show and the reason Tyrion is called Tyrion. I heard there may be a prequel, but am still so sad it’s the last season!
Lastly, two TV-related things that bummed me out: I just found out that one of my favorite shows, Good Behavior, is cancelled! Womp. And I couldn’t get into this season of House of Cards. Anyone else? Is it worth another try? I am not sure I can do it.
