Happy New Year! W4street is officially 2 years old today! This snowy weekend in NYC was the perfect opportunity to pull out one of my favorite birthday presents to myself: this wool blend coyote fur trimmed coat. I am from Chicago, and one rule I always stick to when purchasing coats is to only buy coats and jackets that have hoods! Lately, I have been very into fur trim. I have a dark olive green puffer that I wear when it is really cold, but for this weekend’s light snow this “Little Red Riding Hood” inspired coat was perfect. I saw it in September at Nordstrom Rack and they only had a few left. It was love at first site. I love the camel color, fur trim, and the toggle details. It felt very “cloak-like” to me. I was okay with the splurge because it’s so practical (there are even double pockets!) not to mention it’s from one of my favorite designers- Trina Turk. I saw an extremely similar coat at ZARA, too. My coat is still available in black!
This post must be a delayed birthday post, because I paired the coat with my favorite new black leather tassel cross-body– another birthday present from my good friend Nicky, and an amazing Baublebar crocodile and pearl collar (trend alert!) I saw and had to have. I have been wearing my OTK boots over pants this winter, too. They add an extra layer of warmth to my legs! Sorry there aren’t more pictures- it was really cold!
