Shearling Bomber: A Winter Essential

You may have gotten hit by Blizzard Juno, or it may have been in a bust in your area, however, many of us in the northeast will not disagree that it has been a quite cold winter. As a seasoned resident of this part of the country, it just seems like it never gets easier welcoming old man winter with the passing years.

Outerwear has always been one of my favorite things. A great jacket, whether fall, winter, or spring, is a must have piece for any wardrobe. I have numerous winter jackets and love to switch up my outerwear depending on my look or mood. One piece, however, is a winter essential if you are in a cold weather climate: a great shearling.

When shopping for a shearling, I opted to go with a modern, moto-inspired piece. The green color attracted me to this particular jacket as it was something different compared to the traditional black or tan styles. While a shearling bomber may not be the ideal choice for when the snow is falling, it is a great option for beating the cold after the storms. 

Given the modern edge of the jacket, I paired it with moto inspired denim that compliments the aspects of the jacket. I layered the bomber with a warm, merino wool sweater for added warmth. I finished this winter look by adding a warm pair of boots, perfect for walking over the snow covered sidewalks and streets of many of the cities in the northeast.

Paramour Wayne Hotel

Happy New Year to all readers and supporters! For me personally, 2015 could be a year to bring big things...lets hope so! Living in the city, I loved trying new places all the time, whether a recommendation of friends or a place that appeared on a "best" list. Recently, I experienced a new place in the Philadelphia suburbs on the Main Line.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar, the Main Line is a historic area consisting of a bunch of towns that lead into the city of Philadelphia. The area is renowned for is classic style, large estates, and "old money." Wayne is a quaint town right on the Main Line, filled with a myriad of shops and restaurants. For a Sunday brunch, I turned to the Wayne Hotel and Paramour.

Paramour features seasonal American cuisine, great drinks, and a lovely contemporary design aesthetic. If you find yourself on the Main Line from travel or it is your locale, I highly recommend a stop at Paramour. The sunday brunch menu features classics like chicken and waffles as well as more modern dishes such as eggplant parmesan sliders. The best thing (in my opinion) about Paramour? The make your own Bloody Mary bar...yes you read that correctly!
