I heard the phrase “Polar Vortex” and mentions of snow on the news so that means it’s time to pull out the boots. If your old pairs are looking less than chic, I have plenty of pairs in varying heights and price points to help you keep warm. These sherpa lined leather Chelsea boots will […]

Sweater weather quickly transitioned into coat weather today when the temperature suddenly dropped. I have so many coats that they really are bursting out of my coat closet but that doesn’t stopped me from buying more every year. In fact, I just bought two in the last week. My inspiration last year and again this […]

Each January has a date designated as Blue Monday. It signifies a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for presents are due. The weather in New York has a windchill below zero but it’s also a bank holiday so at least most people don’t have […]

Did you watch The Last Days of John F. Kennedy, Jr. last week?  The best part was seeing videos of him with Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. We normally see photos of her running away from the paparazzi so it was nice to see her smiling and actually hear her voice. It’s also amazing that her fashion […]

Every fall, I try to put off wearing boots as long as possible since I know I’ll be wearing them until March. There are much colder temperatures forecast for this weekend and even possible snow flurries coming soon so I don’t think I can put them off much longer. I’ve been adding a few new […]

Fall transitional weather lasted about a day in New York before the temperatures dropped and the heat came on last week. We are all now wearing coats now and complaining about the cold. If you’re looking for coat inspiration, I highly recommend watching the film Ocean’s 8 if you haven’t already. It was filmed in […]

Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring Are you listening In the lane Snow is glistening A beautiful sight, We’re happy tonight Walking in a winter wonderland Gone away, is the bluebird Here to stay, is a new bird He sings a love song, As we go along Walking in a winter wonderland In the meadow we can build […]

Cabin Fever

12 . 12 . 14

I really thought I would be feeling better by now but I’m still sick. I’m starting to have cabin fever from staying home more than usual but I’m also having real cabin fever.  Pinterest was full of snowy winter cabins this morning that had me wishing I was visiting one this holiday season. It also […]

I usually prefer to wait until after Thanksgiving to start thinking about Christmas but retailers won’t let me.  So in the spirit of “if you can’t beat them, join them” I give you some looks from the J.Crew December Style Guide.  The cute family photos shot in Norway actually make me excited for winter and […]

New York is a wet and slushy mess today.  I thank my lucky stars that my morning commute is from my bed to my desk.  I still can’t completely escape the grey skies and black and white landscape though.  Here’s how it’s inspiring me today.  Place de la Madeleine – Rue de la Paix Paris […]

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. – Edith Sitwell Photo of my apt via instagram

Winter Reading

12 . 28 . 13

The love of learning,the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow As much as I love reading on the beach in the summer, there is really nothing better than snuggling up with a good book in the winter.  Yesterday, I stopped by the Strand Bookstore in the newly renovated […]

Chic, Le Sport

12 . 24 . 13

Christmas came early to Habitually Chic. Yesterday, I received a copy of the book Jacques Henri Lartigue: A Sporting Life.  In French, the title is Chic, le sport ! which obviously, I find amusing. I was first introduced to the book at a press preview at Hermès whose 2013 theme for the year was “a sporting life” which […]

Snow Days

12 . 11 . 13

It snowed yesterday in New York.  Although it didn’t stick, it has me more excited for the holidays. I finally bought a wreath and paperwhites so it’s starting to look a lot more like Christmas in my apartment too. Here’s a little more inspiration to put you in the mood.  Happy Holidays!  All images via […]

It was 28 degrees this morning in New York.  Definitely makes me regret dropping all my fur coats off for a little TLC last week.  While I was talking to my furrier Anne Dee Goldin (by appointment via adg@goldin44.com or 917-282-6626), I inquired if she could rework vintage furs into blankets and she said anything […]
