A Pop of Color

 Tee: Zara (similar) | Coat: Zara (similar)Shades: Meters/Bonwe (similar here) 
Jeans: Topshop | Booties: Aldo (similar) | Bag: Forever 21 (similar)

Take a girl out of New York, and suddenly her all-black look isn't so chic anymore. Don't get me wrong, I don't see myself abandoning my monochrome tendencies for a while (or ever). But it's a funny thing to take a New Yorker's wardrobe across the world to a place like Shanghai. Here, girls love their pastel coats and colorful pairings, and they still look fabulous. I've made it my goal to assimilate more into this colorful clothing culture, but I'm sure you can tell how well I've been doing so far. Are these blue mirrored shades a start?

PS. I apologize for the change in quality of my outfit photos! I wasn't able to bring my DSLR, but I hope these alternative camera shots will do. Also, I am leaving for a short getaway later this week that should provide some great photo opportunities, so stay tuned!
