Merry, Merry Christmas Eve to all!

It’s hard to believe 2019 is almost over… but I’m feeling extremely grateful today. For all of the opportunities I’ve been given this year, and the chance to finally be home for the holidays. Even for the coziest black faux fur coat featured in this post.

By the way, you’ll find myself, Hoang-Kim, and Amanda (my besties I went to NYC with) featured on’s Instagram today!

If you follow me on Instagram (@pardonmuahinsta), you know this black faux fur coat is one of my favorite things. I bought it right before I left for New York and it’s easily one of my most used purchases. I wore it every single day! With my travel outfit, to dinner with fancy dresses, over a sweater for Central Park photos. And since I’ve been home I wear it just to take Heidi out. I just cannot say enough good things! I love that it’s obviously versatile, super warm, SUPER soft, and an item that won’t easily go out of style. The smallest size they offer is small so that’s what I got and it’s cozy but not too oversized. I would say it runs true to size.

We took these photos at the Bryant Park Christmas Market. It was one of my favorite spots we visited. We watched ice skaters, ate waffles with marshmallows, syrup, and bacon, and wandered the storefronts with hot apple cider. It was dreamy!

I paired my black faux fur coat with faux leather leggings (size up, wearing small petite) and an NYC tee. On top, a black knit pom beanie. I own it in three colors so I brought the others for the girls to wear. We got quite a few questions about where they were from walking around looking like the cozy pom pom triplets!

I hope that all of you have the most wonderful holiday! Whether it’s with family or friends, or with your sweet furry pup. It’s my first Christmas in my own home, and I have to say, I’m truly enjoying every moment.

Make sure to stop by my Instagram and the feed for our Christmas Eve Takeover. I wrote all of our captions to Twas’ The Night Before Christmas (based on our outfits and settings) so it’s pretty entertaining! You’ll also find lots of holiday and winter outfit inspiration.

IN MY NEWEST POSTS you’ll find affordable pink sweaters under $50 and New Year’s Eve dresses that dazzle in my last two blog posts.
