pink coat

Coat: Asos (on sale). Beaded dress worn as a top: Vintage. Skirt: Asos (on sale). Pouch Bag: Bao Bao Issey Miyake. Trainers: Stan Smith.  Winter leggings (worn under skirt/just seen): American Apparel.  Sunglasses: NY street vendor

These photos were taken right before getting back in the mini to drive over to a friend’s home in Long Island.   I could’ve worn knit tights but hate how they looked with this, so I wore winter leggings under the skirt instead. They’re life savers.  I do that when I want to wear a skirt and avoid tights.  Exposed ankles are ok with a car ride.

Another problem solver is layering a dress over a skirt – esp a shift dress because they’re so straight up and down.  Most knit tops don’t have that structure or length.  Let me know if you try it.  It’s one way to winterize a dress.  Another way is in this post with a polo neck.

ps. How ridic is this lilac wool coat?  Obviously it’ll work in spring but wearing it in winter feels less expected and less cloying so why not?

      Thank you! It was a gamble getting this colour since I’ve not worn anything in it before.

      Hi! I would say its medium warmth. Not one to wear on the coldest days at all. Its a gorge coat though for milder days and especially spring of course

      Thank you! Its used mostly as my make up bag but sometimes like that day I used it as the clutch.
