A Trench & A Chunky Knit

This was my first time shooting in a snowy Central Park and it was beautiful!  Although it was snowing, the sun was shining bright.  I definitely need to spend more time there when the weather gets better.  I forget how amazing CP is sometimes.  Shame on me.

Outfit Details 


Trench Coat: Forever21 / Sweater: Forever21 / Pants: H&M (love these)
Boots: Nordstrom Rack (similar) / Hat: Prima Donna / Bag: Prima Donna (love this studded one)


When I first found this mustard trench coat, it immediately made me think of the spring.  I wanted to wear it now though, so I was thinking of ways to make it work for the winter too.  I think that we are at that point where we can slowly start to transition some spring pieces into our outfits.  Although it's still cold over here, there are definitely ways to do this.  Since a trench like this is so thin, layers underneath are a must.  I have on a long sleeve tee and then this chunky turtleneck knit on top.  I really love this combination of the mustard & grey. This is exactly how I tried the pieces on in the fitting room too.  I wasn't purposely trying to pair them together, but I ended up loving the combo. 

 Can you tell I have a major hat obsession?  So happy to finally have other colors and not just my black one, which I have literally worn a thousand times!  I am surprised that it's still in good condition.  Truthfully, with this winter weather, hair static is on a whole other level so throwing on a hat helps out a lot.  It's also a great solution for those days when you do not want to style your hair or let's just be real, when maybeeeee your hair is a bit dirty? lol I am guilty of this.  

Initially, I was planning to wear this outfit with jeans and booties, but when I saw the weather I thought it was best to wear knee high boots with black pants.  I love the faux leather detailing on these.  It's really those small things that make simple pieces stand out so much more.  The zippered bag also popped out a lot with this.   On a quick side note, I've been embracing nude lipstick so much more lately.  You guys know how much I love my red and even bold pinks, but there is something about a nude lip that I love.  It's subtle, but effective. 

Hope you have a great Thursday! <3

  5. I love how this outfit pops against the background. Great coat, I love the colour and how you layered it. You definitely made the coat more winter appropriate despite the thin layer.
