Windy Winter Days

H&M beanie & coat | Urban Outfitters high waisted jeans | Aldo shoes

Although these photos were taken in Jersey, this is the prime example of my "typical New Yorker" commuting look. A beanie to fight the wind, a long coat to bundle up, and flat black booties to race with the time on the walk signal. Practical, yet chic. 

I especially love the quilted sleeves on this coat. They add a nice amount of texture to an otherwise simple outfit. Mixed media is still one of my favorite trends in outerwear because it creates an interesting edge in a look. I think it gives the illusion that this outfit is not as simple as a coat, t-shirt, and jeans.

My inspiration for this outfit was Danielle of WeWoreWhat. As a fellow New Yorker, she always finds a way to combine a chic, tomboy look with practicality for navigating the city. You can't forget her signature beanie as well! Who do you take your fashion inspiration from? I'd love to follow some new blogs!

Thanks for reading!
