moments of chic

pim + larkin coat c/o piperlime . velvet by graham and spencer top c/o piperlime {similar} . vince pants . rag and bone boots . bauble bar necklace {similar} . butter nail polish in 'queen vic'

Now that the weather is getting colder it has become a little challenging to do outfit shoots. I'm not a fan of taking off my coat and freezing my butt off and apparently it shows in my face and posture. I'd never make it on America's Next Top Model, you know, standing in times square in a bikini in the snow. That's the kind of "challenge" they do on that show right? While I will have to work this out eventually, in the meantime I am happy to feature my favorite coats as part of my outfits because if this is street style, no one is walking around Manhattan without one these days.

Lately I have been living in this one from PiperlimeThe asymmetrical front drapes perfectly and is so cozy zipped up, it's like wearing a blanket in coat form, while the faux leather sleeves add a little edge. It captures that cool downtown feel that I love. To complete the look I paired it with a long black tee, bordeaux colored pants, and my trusty ankle boots; a look that has become my everyday uniform.

  2. I don't know how these models do- pose in next to nothing in the freezing cold! My face always ends up looking twisted, like I'm in pain. Ha. Not cute.

    LOVE the coat; what a great piece! Piperlime is the best. :)
