How to style a coat

I ABSOLUTELY love to wear color. Yes, I know I live in New York the city of all black, but when I wear color I come alive. My 2 favorite coats this season are from  Topshop and Banana Republic .

The Topshop colorful knee length faux fur is a “I am here” coat. I decided to style it with  Madewell  flare overalls, a white shirt and silver platform creepers. My 2nd favorite part of this outfit are the bobby pins from Forever 21. Instead of using just one I used all 4. I love how they are 4 different size pearls.


The Banana Republic three button citron green coat had to be styled with even more color. Of course the first option would be to style it with all black or just one other color, but why not have some fun with it! I kept the fabrication simple, the entire outfit is of silk….different shades of green. I added a touch of the color bordeaux with the tights and bag. To top off the outfit I paired it with black ankle strap platform creepers.

Item of the week: Statement Earrings

My favorite accessory is a pair of statement earrings. To be more specific a pair of J.Crew  statement earrings. Many times my outfit revolves around this one accessory. I attended the Simply Stylist bloggers event and couldn’t leave the house with my current favorite item. The earrings shown below are made of brass, glass stone, epoxy stone and resin. The colors are a misty forest with a light gold ox plating. I’ve worn them for a full 4 hours and even tough they are 2 3/4″ in length the earrings are light as a feather!! The Christmas holiday season is slowly approaching and these earrings are a great way to add some sparkle to your outfit.
