Coat Day


Never say never in April…


Coat & lime knit: Zara.  White leather vest: H&M (similar here or here). Seen before in this post with a white shirt.   Jeans: Thrift (similars). Shoes: Steve Madden (similars).  Shades: Ray Ban. Bag: Balenciaga

Wore the coat on a rain on/rain off day with oversized faded jeans and a white leather vest.  Leopard heels to start but switched to black Chuck Taylors in the car which felt more me anyway. I should’ve taken a pic in them since it worked with the coat.  Another day ; -)

I wish I had remembered to bring an umbrella though! The rain was unbearable. My friend who took these photos has recently treated himself to what he claims to be the best mens umbrella out there. It definitely kept him dry, so I was very jealous.

ps. and completely un-related but who watches Mad Men?  I’m jumping in mid-stream and it’s bloody good. Need to get the 1st series on Netflix asap.

pps. The next outfit post will def be more spring-like!

    I love this look! I’ve just moved to London, and I’m always looking for ways to stay fashionable in the damp weather. It’s been raining here everyday for like 8 days! I’m dying to get out of my wellies. Cute look!

    • Karen says:

      Thx but I think its adding the vest that helps it: Only saying that because I know a lot of leather sleeve coats are around – especially in NY!

    Mad Men is brilliant I was hooked after the first show. I watched the entire first season in a matter of 2 weeks. Yeah, I was pretty unproductive then. Beware!

    • Karen says:

      I am so getting the first season out!

    • Anonymous says:

      You can stream all of the first 4 or 5 seasons on Netflix! I watched them embarrassingly fast 🙂

    Love your blog soooooooo much! I saw this vest in H&M the other day……waiting for it to go on sale cause it’s pretty dope. Sunday’s episode of Madman was pretty good but Draper is such a douche! He make me angry!
