The Red Coat
The city is great right now, the weather is pleasant, the clouds are perfect and for the first time, I’m enjoying winter. The smell of the city, a quiet Sunday evening, clear streets…and there’s me…in the red coat.
Its no secret that I am not the biggest fan of red (in fact I’ld say that the coat is burgundy, but we won’t tell anyone 😉), but there’s something about this red coat! My style has always been influenced by the “French girls”. I’ve always loved throw ins, loose fits and structured pieces!
Today, I’m showing how much that influence has rub off on me and how I’ve learnt to incorporate it into my personal style. I’m wearing a black mini skirt, a turtle neck sweater, a pair of mountain boots and the red coat. It’s a throw on outfit, simple, comfortable, yet chic. The coat being the strongest piece helped to blur the line between streetstyle and chic.
It was a beautiful day in the city and like most good days, I am taken back to that moment every time I think about it. I really love days like this one.
Hope you enjoyed this! How do you like my red coat? Do you have a red coat or a piece in your wardrobe that helps elevate your everyday look? Comment below with what it is, and how you style it! See you soon!
