This is my third season with this camel coat – it’s one of the most used items that’s ever been in my wardrobe! I grabbed it on a whim from H&M a few years back, honestly, thinking it would maybe last a season or two at most. After so much wear, it’s still in near-perfect shape and I have every intention of wearing it to the ground. It was by far the best $100 I’ve ever spent. You can see some of the ways I’ve styled in on the blog over the years – with a plaid blanket scarf back in 2014, with all black in 2015, and a more casual style for NYFW. My all-time favorite look with this coat is HERE – I love it paired with just neutrals, making the coat the focal point of the whole outfit.
Now on to this look. If you followed along on Snapchat this weekend, you probably saw Raj and I laughing as we shot these photos. We’re always on the hunt for the best backdrop and this time of year is actually difficult. Half of the trees are either bare or haven’t even turned color yet, but after driving through our neighborhood, we found ONE in perfect condition. We started shooting and attracted nearly everyone who walked or drove by us. Families started pulling over and shooting portraits of their kids, runners were taking selfies, and Raja even became the designated photographer of the tree and started taking holiday-card photos for everyone! And here we are, just days later after we shot these photos, this tree is nearly bare – that’s how fast fall happens for us here in New England!
Back to the outfit. I’ve been loving longer hemlines paired with booties this season (I have a similar look coming to the blog later this week). This cowl-neck dress is actually sleeveless, but it was warm enough this past weekend to get away with just a coat. When it cooled down at night, I layered a light cashmere cardigan over it, and it always looks great with my leather jacket. This is my second pair of Marc Fisher boots and I’m officially hooked – I styled a similar pair of chelsea boots on the blog a few weeks back. I love the stacked heel and the stretchy sides – making them super easy to get on and supportive around the ankle.
