Yesterday I was in NY for fashion week and man was it cold! We haven’t had much of a winter in LA so I was super excited to don some cold weather outfits! I love this daytime layered look. It’s a great example of mixing high end and affordable pieces and is perfect for staying warm and looking fab!
What I’m wearing: - Jimmy Choo Boots - J Brand Leather Leggings - H&M Chunky Sweater - Roberto Cavalli Coat - Eugenia Kim Hat

The United States has one of the highest unintended pregnancy rates in the world. We have one of the highest abortion rates. We have one of the highest rates of sexually transmitted infections. But our problem with sex isn’t that we’re having it before marriage; it’s that we’ve cast it as shameful and dirty. And when our collective cultural consciousness says that sex is shameful and dirty, we don’t have the incentive – or the tools– to plan for sex, to see it as a positive responsibility and to make healthy sexual choices.
We’re obsessed with sex on television, in music and in advertisements, but we somehow lack the ability to talk about sex as a positive, moral, pleasure-affirming choice that, like any other adult decision, comes with a set of responsibilities. And when government money is going toward telling people to just wait until marriage, we are literally funding an idea that has never worked in all of human history, instead of supporting tried-and-true policies that could mitigate the harm of a sex-obsessed, but pleasure-starved, culture.
