I moved to New York on September 11, 2004, and my parents flew back out a few months later for Christmas to celebrate the holiday with me in the city. I must not have had a proper winter coat at the time, because for my present, my Mom and Dad bought me a beautiful camel colored overcoat. It ended up being a bit too big so we exchanged at Bloomingdales and I ended up walking out with the gorgeous cream coat you see in these photos. It has been and continues to be my favorite coat, not only because I love the brand Mackage (can we talk about the leather detailing and tailoring?!) but also that it carries 11 and 1/2 years of memories with it and of course, because it was a generous gift from my amazing parents.
Just a quick note to say hello! This week has been a whirlwind of shows, presentations, events and dinners, which has been so fun, but now that things are winding down, I am really looking forward to some quiet time to catch up on work, favorite TV shows (I am SO behind on The Bachelor!) and quality time with Casey and Susan. So here’s to it almost being Friday and I hope you all have had a great week so far! xo
At first when I put this outfit together, I was unsure of the colors together, but after I got the photos back from Lydia I really liked the olive, tan and black together. I guess in my mind it made for an interesting ensemble of unexpected neutrals, but then again that’s the beauty of neutrals, right? They all basically go together!
Anyway, I can’t rave enough about these vegan leather leggings, which I know you guys have seen me wear before, but not only are they comfortable, they are washable (!!!) and will block the wind when it’s freezing outside. I am also loving my new Vince Camuto suede boots, which I just got last week. I love them so much because they are not only comfortable but I love the olive green color, which is a nice change from my other regular taupe or brown boots. I’m looking forward to wearing them this spring with a swingy shift dress and a wide brim felt hat. :)
First off let me just say, Casey named this post. I was struggling for a title and he just blurted out Winter Creamsicle! I started laughing but hey, it stuck.
Anyway, sorry for the short posts this week – it’s been a busy one with Fashion Week in full swing, but I wanted to share this white on cream outfit that I wore earlier this week. Admittedly I was pretty chilly without my coat on but I loved this look so much that I braved the cold to photograph it haha!
Hope everyone’s week was great and here’s to an awesome weekend! xo
Just a quick hello! It’s been a busy week so far with fashion week starting up, but I’ll post again on Friday so make sure to check back, and will be updating on Instagram and Snapchat (use name for both is @mystylepill) so follow along! xo
