Concrete Catwalk // Collar & Cuffs

February 27, 2015

collar-and-cuff-01 This week’s look was my best attempt at a revolt.

The unrest has been bubbling up inside me for months, and I’m refusing to let myself fall into the trap of long black puffer coats currently traipsing around the streets of NYC.

Hundreds (thousands?!) of them hover along above a set of boots chalky with crystalized salt, with the bubbled exterior acting like a bumper in case of a blunder on the slick black ice.

Meanwhile — I’m making the most of a colorful closet, and trying my best not to blend in with the crowd. ;)

Keep reading for the full glimpse at my regionally rebellious look, and I hope you have a bright [and bundled] weekend, wherever you may be!

    Do you know how badly I feel right now about getting rid of a coat just like this!!! I couldn’t figure out what to pair with it!! Haha… hopefully the next person finds the right way to style it, like you did, and can appreciate it’s gloriousness:)

      Ahhhh – I hate it when that happens!!! It’s honestly been right on the verge of going in “the pile” for a few seasons now, but always manages to make it through to see another winter! ;)
